Hot Chocolate for breakfast, flinging poo in the garden, and chicks.

This morning was a special morning for no reason at all. Noah asked for milk and I suggested hot chocolate milk (milk, maple syrup, cocoa powder, cinnamon, vanilla).

And then I made some “granola” by mixing the ingredients to the no bake energy bites (oatmeal, unsweetened shredded coconut, peanut butter, raw honey and cocoa powder). And while the hot chocolate cooled, I put some cream in the mixer for whipped cream. After I scooped out what I needed of the whipped cream, I let it run until it turned to butter. mmmm.

It was just one of those mornings where I look past all of the mess and still make more of a mess. It was just right.

Realize there is a mess. A big mess in my kitchen. And I also plan to work in the garden and get filthy this afternoon if the boys take a nap at the same time… I’m okay with messy.

May. This is happening. 9 months old, hair cut, and chicks.

I always want to tell you the little details of what is going on in my house at the instant I'm starting to write my blogs. I end up reading old posts and enjoying the tid bits, so I'll probably keep writing them. So without further ado:

My sweet Noah is taking a nap! Isaac is playing in the living room, and this mama has coffee beside her and a laptop in front of her. I'm sitting in my FAVORITE chair.

That is a monster. If you couldn't tell.

Coffee again? Yes. I never manage to make it for myself in the morning. But come lunch time, while I'm whipping something up for Noah and Isaac, I start the wonderful coffee. I find it works well with our rhythm and it stays hot until Joel gets home. He likes a surprise hot cup of french press coffee.

What else...

I'm listening to the 32 birds in our living room! They finally came, but they came a day earlier than we expected. So I got the call, scrambles to lay down paper towel and went to the post office. Then we put a latch on the clean out drawer of the coop (so that Noah couldn't open it as easily), and made a chicken waterer. It was a day. A good day.
