Wrapping Up the Last Week of January
I could REALLY get used to staying home (essentially) all week! We had threats of snow several days, and cold temperatures and we just stayed home! It was lovely!
Lexie's already planning to make a BIG batch of applesauce next fall/winter and can it! Works for me!
In sad news, I killed our sourdough starter :( I don't know what happened, for a couple days I felt like it wasn't growing between feedings, but then the evening we were going to actually use it, it smelled REALLY weird! I wasn't about to risk that, so we fed our compost pile and will try again another time. For now, Lexie's baking is back to non-sourdough, but she still made some yummy lentil/cabbage "pockets" for lunch on Wednesday, with the cold leftovers making a great change from sandwiches for lunch on Thursday (when we packed a lunch to eat on our way home from music lessons).
Lexie was excited to be able to say she has now played every note in her violin book at least once! She's working on learning the last song or two, and making sure she isn't rusty on any of the older songs, in preparation for having her "end of book 1" graduation/recital.
