There's Little Ms. Magnolia June, drinking hot chocolate and eating chocolate chip cookies in my backyard today. How can someone with chocolate smeared about her face still look so amazingly sophisticated?
I have been a cookie making fool lately! Besides the ones I made today for the kids, I made some yesterday for a friend and of course the huge batch I made for Glen on Sunday. But that's all. I have no more chocolate chips in the house. And for whatever reason, I've had no desire to eat them myself and have happily sent them all off with others. I'd much rather eat roasted cauliflower with its delicious sauce made of oil, lemon juice, garlic, and chopped olives.
I can't get enough of that stuff.
I've had another day of getting nothing done that "needed" to be done. I intended to clean the hen house but forgot until late afternoon and I'd just put my gloves on when Lily and the kids came over. I knew they were coming but thought maybe I'd have enough time to sneak that chore in but no, I didn't. Oh well. It was a lot more fun to visit with my babies.
This may be true.
Magnolia was off playing with dinosaurs and other animals most of the time, occupied happily by what was going on in her own imaginary worlds. Far more entertaining, I am sure.
"Am I going to need my car?" I asked her. I had walked there.
