Even though at the beginning of the week, it definitely felt like the hardest so far.

Max kicked it off with some school at home.

AND GUYS! My sourdough starter is finally rising! Today is day 15 so it’s nice to see some action – still haven’t baked with it yet.

I spent most of the week with my head down finishing my next book! It’s DONE! Turned it in last week and feels amazing.

Our playdough from a few weeks ago is still going strong.

The best part of this past week was when I discovered that I could make sourdough crackers with the starter discard. OMG. I think I’ve made four batches now. We are obsessed.

Still noticing blooms so much more than I usually do.

Max is obsessed with art and once a day (at least) declares it art time. He put this together with the top of a shoebox he found in our room.

We did a little egg hunt and the kids had SO much fun. They made Eddie hide the eggs three different times.

It was such a blast.

The cutest part was how Max would find eggs and give them to Emilia. Heart explosion.

I just want to eat them up.

I can’t make sourdough yet but I sure as heck bought some.

Ribs, veggies, the sourdough bread… and my mom made potatoes. We did a quick swap of food and I gave everyone ribs.
