We got a chance to spend the weekend together. No funerals.
Our weekend always starts the same with a drive from the city to the village. Occasionally we spot a deer or fox or wild pig on the way, but this weekend we spotted something much less rare – the overturned bike. When we spot a bike overturned on a dark and winding road, we of course stop to look for its owner. That’s our do-goodery policy. This time it really looked like someone might have been hit by a car based on the position of the bike. Fortunately it turned out to be another case of falling drunk into a ditch. Based on previous experience with vomit hands, we decided not to make physical contact with that fellow. We called in backup from the nearby shop – some strong, young men who recognized our description of the poor fellow. He was dragged out of the ditch and returned home safely. It happens so often that I don’t much feel like patting myself on the back anymore.
Saturday we went to a new, little juice bar called Malinea where we drank yummy fruit shakes and received a little present of fruit preserves. The kids had waffles with whipped cream – homemade whipped cream, not from the spray can.
I also made a practice cake for Lizzie’s birthday party. She asked for a SpongeBob cake, and I wasn’t sure if I could make something that resembled SpongeBob. This is my first attempt. Hopefully, it’ll come out a little better on party day.
Here’s my first attempt at rainbow gellies. Rosie’s birthday has passed, but her party is next weekend. We’ve got one little Celiac guest, and I wanted to make something special just for her to eat. I hope she likes gellies.
