We had yet another day of rain and clouds today. After a morning of cleaning & grocery shopping, it felt wonderful to take a nap with C. There's nothing quite like a solid nap while listening to the rain. T & C have a favorite book, My Very First Mother Goose with illustrations by Rosemary Wells. One of my favorite selections is:
Rain on the green grass,
And rain on the tree;
Rain on the roof tops,
But not on me.
There is a drawing of a little bunny tucked in his bed with the rain pouring outside his window.
Abuelita & Marissa came for dinner tonight. I had planned on making Enrique's favorite ribs recipe, but the unpredictable rain meant a new menu. Just made a fresh green salad with Romaine, tomatoes, avocados & Persian cucumbers. We ordered Dan's bbq double-decker pizza (our latest favorite-love Chicago pizza!). I made some mango iced tea and a summer pie. Simple vanilla cream cheese filling in a graham crust. I tossed some fresh peaches, cherries & blueberries in homemade strawberry jam and voila-quick, easy pie, no oven required.
C is fast asleep & T is getting his pajamas on so that we can read a story before bedtime.
