A Chill Week With a Few Projects Mixed In

This week was pretty chill. We pretty much just bounced around the house. We did do a few mini projects, but I think I’ll just describe those in the corresponding pictures. 🙂

Playing “Lemonade Shop”. Abigail had put a piece of fruit (from her play kitchen) in each cup and was using her tablet as a checkout screen.
This set-up can only mean one thing: roll baking!
The nerd in me loves to see yeast reacting to sugar and warm water!
I love when they come out this scrumptious-looking!
I made my rolls bigger than usual so that I could use them for meatball sandwiches.
She wanted to play…so he gave her a controller. He left out the little detail that it wasn’t on…and she didn’t notice. 😂
I wanted to have something on top of this cabinet in our living room to make it feel more…finished. Paul mentioned wanting to bring more of Abigail’s books downstairs, so he suggested a book case of some sort. I couldn’t find a book case that I liked that fit the space, but I did find a metal basket that I just turned on its side. I added a decorative milk jug with some faux greens in it (I have a few others just like it in other parts of the living and dining rooms, so I feel it ties in nicely).
The farther off shot.
She was pretty excited to have more books downstairs.
I don’t think I’ll ever tire of this sight. 😍 It doesn’t hurt that they’re reading one of my favorite books, either. 😁
What a difference {almost} nine years makes. Also, I finally realized just why I don’t mind watering the plants in the front: I’m pretty much in the shade the entire time. 😂
Pretty flowers make me smile. These snapdragons are some of my favorites.
It’s hard to see, but I added some mesh over the tomatoes in hopes that the birds will finally have to leave them alone.
Paul added a cord cover to cover up the cords that were going down from the TV. I love how neat it looks now!
I added some more flowers to the front of our flower bed in the front yard (there used to be wildflowers there, but they have died off for the year).
Paul hung up the pantry sign that I bought (it matches the one I got for the powder room).
I have a brownie pan that is a pan that makes twelve individual brownies…and I tried a new recipe: butterscotch pecan. I used my cooking blender to make pecan butter and then mixed that into a boxed brownie mix (along with the other ingredients needed for the brownies). Then while they were baking, I used my blender to make a butterscotch sauce to go on top (that’s where the butterscotch element from the recipe title comes in).
