We made the mayonnaise for the cole slaw together using eggs, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, salt, and cayenne pepper whipped into emulsion in the blender. That was fun, but was messy and really loud, and took longer than any of us expected.
On days like today, it feels like this with the boys:
It was mostly peaceful coexistence with stretches of doing things together and then doing things apart, sometimes circling back to find one another again.
Yesterday, when Daddy Honey came home, Woody told him that he wanted to start a leaf collection. (I think he may have gotten this idea from a Franklin episode?) So they went through the back and side yards looking for cool leaves. Daddy Honey can identify a fair number of trees, and we looked up some others in our tree book which, while written for Floridians, still is full of good information pertaining to trees here in Arkansas. (And also, it was written by our dear friend Hope's dad, Gil, and he inscribed it to me, and so it will always, always have a place on our shelf, even if we move to New Zealand.) Daddy Honey's favorite is a Catalpa, so they went down the street to where the one is that he passes every day walking to and from work. Its leaf is the big one down there.
