A while ago my son requested that we have a day where we dont go anywhere, and this became stay at home Tuesdays.  Well lately we haven’t been sticking to it and this week we did and it was such a perfect day with my boys.

We sang songs(“I can sing a rainbow” and “we are one, we are many, I am , you are, we are Australian”, did arts and crafts (while mummy worked on a new project), baking, playing outside whenever it wasn’t raining, inspecting the new flowers in the garden, and story time.

My little chefs

Little Pear and cinnamon cakes
1 egg
1/2 cup plain flour and 1/2 cup SR flour
1/3 cup Caster sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 Pear peeled and diced
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon extra caster sugar 

1. Grease muffins plans. Peel and dice pear.
2. Whisk oil, sugar and egg together.
3. Add flours and pear, stir until just combined.
4. Drop level tablesponns into each pan hole and sprinkle with combined cinnamon and a extra caster sugar. 
5. Bake in moderately hot oven for about 15 minutes, serve warm or cold.

I discovered while browsing blogs some cute paperclip bookmarks to make, I found them on Dianne Barns Blog, thanks for the idea Dianne.  I made them as a present for my craft group.  I think I like yours more, but it was still a fun project.

While I was making these, my eldest decided he would make one for his dad, and stuck a picture of an aeroplane on a paperclip and gave it to his dad when he got home from work.

So we took our pear muffins and book marks to the craft group today, where I learnt to knit.

I had tried it once before when I was younger but had little success, I more hopefull….time will tell.

This is probably the most rows I ever done, I’m knitting a baby blanket for my neice who was born on Monday.  She may get it as a 1st birthday present.  I haven’t seen her yet, only photos so I’m really looking forward to meeting her this weekend.

I discovered that there is a new Kwerner colour challenge, so I also have attempted another challenge.  I didn’t have any of the inks and not many papers so I had to improvise.  Check out my design.
