Our Day... (Dot Game)

What's Cookin'?

We've had such a busy June so far; it's nice to have a settled week ahead of us.  I have the following soaking and ready to bake this evening.  They are all repeats except for the apple squares recipe.  The tortillas are sooo awesome.  I was bummed that I wasn't getting the organic corn tortillas that I can eat from Azure this month but one dd was happy and gleefully said something like, "Good, then we'll just have to make homemade!"  Yes, it would be so much easier to order (or get locally) Ezekiel Sprouted Tortillas - but homemade is much less expensive, the dc really like them, and it's a love choice (but I WILL try to get some next month!)

Sourdough Bread

Soaked Oatmeal Muffins (these are wonderful - even without add-ins).  I still don't have muffin tin liners so I'm just baking it in a 9x9 glass baking dish and I cut it into squares.

Sourdough Tortillas

Apple Squares (I'm soaking the flour with the melted butter and a 1/8 C fresh whey) [Update:  The apple squares are totally awesome!  I don't have a safe cookie sheet as recommended in the recipe so I greased my large baking dish and my 1/2-size one.  They are thinner than a granola bar but cooked nicely.]

We'll also be making lots and lots of all-natural homemade dog treats to sell at a dog show this Saturday.  We sold out of our horse treats at a horse show last Saturday (yeah!!) and only had one bag of dog treats left.  This is their fundraiser for their 4-H projects.

I also have rice soaking and beans soaking.

What's Schoolin'?

We are easing back into our school responsibilities after a chaotic May and busy 1/2 of June (sigh).  Shelf work is just what the doctor ordered for a nice calm re-entry into the school zone.  These are their first choices of the day:

Dd-10:  Dot Game and then zoology.  She was looking through the dynamic addition cards for the Dot Game but wanted one that went into the 10-thousands.  I suggested that she could make her own cards and she went for it with a grin (she just used the backs of my cards since I don't need to save them past her use).  I posted a link below to a nice Dot Game I found at Amazon but I seriously made mine for the cost of a $1 frame.  Here is a really nice free one on their free download page:
This is a photo of our Dot Game.  Dd has enjoyed it for years.

Dd-15:  The GeoPuzzle Africa and the Middle East (and laundry - her choice!).  She has the other boxes of puzzles out also.

Dd-16:  The zoology box (and laundry also - her choice also!)

What's Green?

Me:  "There is a huge spider in the main bathroom but I've noticed that we don't have any scorpions (that's their favorite hangout).  I left him there and just shooed him in the back corner.  I've read that scorpions eat spiders but they are also eaten by spiders."

Dh:  "You know, there are sprays that will just kill everything (yes, he knows how to rile me, lol)."

Me:  "I've already named him :)." [How's that for organic pest control??]

After brown recluse infestations, scorpions, black widows, and even mice... a spider is nothing!!
