I kept thinking about the Rats of Nimh, and not in a "oh, there just little creatures who are trying to survive in this cruel world, maybe we should try to figure out how to coexist", but rather I keep thinking, "they are too smart for us, we're doomed! We'll never get rid of them, we might as well give over the garden and the property to them right now! We're doomed I say, we're doomed!" The kids chopped out the blackberry bush - I was
that one. In 2005. Another big thank you to my mother-in-law, who took care of the kids while we went out!
Baked oatmeal with apples. I made it this week and last week, and serve it with a choice of strawberries, blueberries, cream, and applesauce. I do decrease the maple syrup to 1/2 cup and the honey to 2 T, just to make it a little less sweet, but still delicious.
Wow, third week in a row I've done this. I'm strangely pleased with myself. It is nice to find accomplishments where I can. Even if they are meaningless blog posts...
