Just as well. It's been a rainy two weeks, and by the forecast, I think some of the digging will have to wait.
But I do have some crafting to finish.
And we're almost done with our bedtime reading for the Egypt unit, so I'd like to start wrapping up the day work for that shortly and get ready to move on. Of course, one thing that is causing me some pause is that Rod would like to study ancient Asia, America, Europe, and Africa. GREAT idea. But I am finding it really challenging to find materials. I'm sure they MUST be out there...but where?
After that, the Classical Greeks, and finding that material is pretty easy. The harder part will be narrowing it down so we don't spent 18 months on Greece.
I have managed to stay toxin-free for pretty much this entire vacation, so last night I felt safe to test brown rice. (Sweet, with an apple, strawberry, and rhubarb compote on top) So far, so good. I may be able to add rice to my diet. That would be nice. I could have either quinoa or rice flours, which would open up quite a few options. (But meanwhile, I have been discarding all of my old vegetarian recipes from the 1980s, since they're all based in grains and beans and that seems not to be a viable option for my middle age.)
Bets news of all: Corey is planning to visit this summer! I am delirious with joy! I have not seen enough of that young man these last 10 years!
