I was baking again today. I found a can of pumpkin puree that was just calling out to me to be made into muffins. I whipped up a batch while J was reading and B was playing on Mathcats. The house sure did smell delicious with all those yummy spices swirling through the air.
Speaking of swirls, I saw a lovely piece of pottery on a blog this morning with a swirled glaze. I felt inspired to make marbleized paper with the kids. I've done it before, years ago, and felt certain I could create a beautiful swirly masterpiece. Instead, it was as though a convention of amoebas decided to hold their yearly meeting at my place. I didn't give up-I made three batches of the "stuff" but each time, amoebas. So then I got to thinking. . .I wonder how my new socks would look in this stuff. Well, they looked like pond scum for a while and then I washed them and dried them and now I have some pretty pink socks. Oh, there was one really cool amoeba-it looked like a mermaid with child(look at the green paper at the bottom right, do you see her?) And, yes, I also made some raisins dance.
