Jan 4th - LOTS accomplished

So I didn't get as much done on my MM plan as I wanted but I had a great day with the kids......and that's what it is all about....right!

Brittany and I started a new adventure researching all the theories of how the world came to be. Today we researched heavily the "Big Bang Theory" and who coined the term. Brittany wrote 2 on the idea of the "Big Bang Theory" and the other on "Georges LemaƮtre". She can't wait to get started on more tomorrow. We even went on AIG and ordered several books to help us futher our research.

David, Madalynn, Ellie and I read LOTS of books. Madalynn and I also worked on her handwriting book and some copy of her FAVORITE things to do.

Forrest got off early enough to be home for dinner and requested Spaghetti and Meatballs.....very unusual for him. I did lots of "sneaky mom" things with veggies....pureed 2 zucchini and about 1/2 lb of carrots into the sauce. I added more veggie puree to the meatballs also adding in LOTS of fresh garlic and fresh basil. I served it with a side of sautee zucchini, yellow squash and mushrooms. Everyone commented on how much they LOVED the sauce. Brittany said she can't wait for lunch tomorrow so that she can eat the rest. LOL......Murrrahhhaaahhhhhhaaaaaa!

I bottled up my "Master Tonic" this evening. I didn't end up with nearly as much as I thought I was going to have so I will need to get a second batch started tomorrow. I want to also buy enough to start a 3rd bath and let that one brew for a full 28 days to see if I can tell a difference.

I created labels for the tonic. It was really fun to see my creation all bottled up with labels and all. Such a feeling of accomplishment.

I set some St. John's Wort in EVOO today to make a nice Red Oil. It needs to sit and bake in the hot sun for 3-4 weeks. I am excited to go out to shake it each day and see what it evolves into.

I did a little cleaning....ya know the typical....laundry, dishes, etc. Nothing exciting like my pantry. I need to post those photos soon. For now I am off to snuggle with Forrest and watch a movie.
