Our Sunday day started with cafe au laits and freshly-baked croissants.
Nope, I’m neither crazy nor that ambitious. All I have to say is, “I ♥ Trader Joe’s!”
I took these out on Saturday night, let them sit at room temperature for about 9 hours, popped them into a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes and Voila:
After this hearty and comforting breakfast, we all headed back to bed while Oliver took his morning nap. That was almost as glorious as the croissants!
For lunch we went to the Omelette Parlor in Santa Monica for their delicious waffles with hot banana and walnut topping. While we were waiting for lunch to arrive, we were trying to find something to entertain Oliver. The camera worked for a little bit.
After the novelty of using the Raw Sugar packets as maracas wore off, I handed him a container of half-and-half.
I don’t know if he’s had them before he put it up to his lips, pierced the top with his teeth and began to suck out the contents.
And in my infinite wisdom, I took it away, which resulted in this:
And although I’m not usually swayed by crocodile tears, given how packed the place was, I gave it back.
After he’d sucked it dry, he had to compare it to what he gets in his sippy cup.
I think he may have liked the sippy cup simply because it was easier to get to and there was more in it.
Then during nap time I opted to work on the First Block of Many and came up with this (JUST as Oliver was waking up! Talk about timing!)
Obviously I still need to do something about the outsid edges, and unfortunately there are a couple of tucks in the center that I’ll go back and rework. But overall I’m really trying to have this process be about creating and not about perfectionism.
Now I’m watching the Oscar’s while I iron shirts.
