Today the sun was shining in all it's glory. The sky was an amazing colour, and the clouds - for the most part - were wispy and light. Most of the washing got dry (funnily enough, washing doesn't seem like work to me - except for putting it away - that is!), and there were a few moments for playing. Perhaps you could say that I might be in the early stages of nesting. Cleaning the kitchen and bathroom WAS like work (thanks Mum, for phoning then and making the work seem less like work!)... but we won't talk about that now, will we?
I found a website a while ago that has some early reading (and phonics) interactive pages that you can use for free... if you don't mind trying to juggle the difference between American and Australian accents that is (not a problem for us adults - but when you are learning to read and sound out words... it's another story). So I had Jellyfish reading simple sentences to me, with Little C watching on. They both loved it. It's not the first time Jellyfish has had a go at it, but it's the first time his little bro has been in attendance, and they both thrived on it. It was just one of those warm fuzzy moments, watching them both learning and loving it.

Speaking of food, I experimented with a new choko recipe tonight - I'll have to see if I can reproduce it and share it with you. It tasted great in my books - and even Jellyfish said he liked it (I usually do it in strips with bechamel sauce because that's the way the hunk who lives here likes it).
The last thing I wanted to show you, you might want to skip if you don't like bugs and creepy crawly things. This came in on the picnic rug after our lunch on the lawn yesterday. I have NO IDEA what it is. If you do, PLEASE tell me!!! It's body seems to be quite soft (I encouraged it gently into a jar with my knitting needle so I could get it somewhere suitable to have it's photo taken), and it scuttles. I know. I know. I did the whole girly thing and let out a squeal when it escaped the first time. Sheesh. How embarrassing. But I did get this photo that was actually in focus (not bad considering it was dark, I'd been on my feet all afternoon and was in the midst of making dinner!) before the Mr. let it go outside for me - Hey! I had choko to cook still! LOL
So there you have it - my creative space was all jumbled up in a mix of things today, but it was a good mix.
One day to go till the weekend. Does anyone else count down till their hubby's are home all day?

Hope your day was filled with sprinklings of splendidness.
