WOWZA! 50 Followers! WELCOME!! So happy to have you here. I hope you won't be shy. I look forward to getting to know you. I got a lot of love from my last post and I really and deeply appreciate the support you have offered me. Thank you!
Nothing so profound today, I'm afraid. It is the last day of my "spring break" and if I can manage to find my mojo, I will spend most of it cooking for the week. We will be making bread, 15 bean stew, hummus, a stir fry with Japanese (Nasoya) noodles, vegetarian dumplings, and prepping fruit and veggies for the week. Oh, and I got a great haul of fresh green beans from Fresh Market yesterday, so I've got to decide how I'll be using those. I can't WAIT for the garden to start producing and I can start "shopping" on my own porch.
I'm SERIOUSLY looking forward to seeing the kids tomorrow. I know that mothers say that no love is as steady as from mother to child, but I truly believe that should be extended to nannies as well. I miss the little boogers like CRAZY when they're not around. Luckily, I'm sent lots of texts and pictures, and since 5-year-old can read, she likes to send me emails from the train. :-D I'm so ready for the schedule to get back to normal. February was tough, trading illnesses back and forth, and then a week long vacation. It's tough for me, but even more so, it is a bit confusing for 9-month-old, who has to get to know me again every time. We're right in the thick of separation anxiety and, though he's an extremely genial little boy, I'm sure it is a bit disconcerting for him.
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
