Ella had a good day yesterday playing house. In the afternoon I was Ella and she was Momma. She put me to bed so I pulled out every trick she tries. I cried for a drink, a snack, wind my flashlight, bats on the blind (never happens for real), bugs in my bed (ditto) and all the crazy things she tells me while she's supposed to be sleeping. Well, it just goes to show they really do listen, Ella shushed me and gave me all the responses I usually give her. It was so cute.
Before supper, Ella got a couple of her babies set up at the table and made them supper. You can see Lily here in Ella's chair. After supper Ella helped by drying the plastic things. We don't use plastic kid dishes, I expect Ella to learn how to treat dishes properly so there isn't too much she can dry yet. But that's ok, her attention span on drying isn't that long some days.
The days have definitely turned to fall. My favourite season. Colin fixed up the corn stove and now we are toasty -well, not really toasty but at least we're not cold and damp. I just wish the corn stove didn't put so much smoke into the house when Colin cleans it (to be fair, he does clean it with it still running).
Today has been a slow day, just can't seem to get moving and would love nothing better than to crawl back into bed :) I did have a shower this morning and I currently have a batch of bread on the rise. Has anyone else noticed that bread rises better on a sunny day than the dismal one we have today?
