This morning I went to make frosting for the children to paint the cookies, and realized I had no food coloring. So I made white and chocolate, and let them use sprinkles. They had fun.

Bob got off work early. He went to work on the van mirror, but the glue didn't set up. Some of the framework is broken. He had to cut wires to get it off. But he thinks he can get it back on with the right sealant.

I tried something I'd read about - soaking rice before cooking it - and it didn't work. Basically it ended up as mush.

William was fussy.

The bread I made for tomorrow's lunch fell.

It's cold and windy and rainy.

So, we decided to not go tomorrow.

It's kind of a relief, but kind of disappointing, too. But there will be better opportunities, I'm sure.

P.S. I ordered Ella some new shoes from

I've never heard of soaking rice but I have my own soaking story. My friend told me I would never eat my tapioca again if I once used the "real" pearl tapioca. I bought some a few weeks ago. Last night I wanted something sweet so much I got out the pearl tapioca to cook. The directions say to soak it overnight. I was surprised!jc

Ha. One time I bought some pearl tapioca, but never did find any way to use it. :-)
