Weekend Views

When it's possible, our weekend starts on Friday after lunch, not that we are out living it up.  We are in doing that, of course.  This weekend, Mike brough home the long-awaited Colossus pizza.  They say it's 28" in diameter, but that is way off.  I would say that it is probably 34" wide.  Thank goodness, our tiny house has an extra-wide front door (so wide we had to order a custom storm door!).

Mike forgot something and had to go back out, but we started on the pizza without him.  Without him, I couldn't get it through the kitchen doorway.  I had to store it on the couch.  We are still eating the leftovers, after three meals.

Pizza Eaters

Willow and Roan have been using the chalkboards again.  I am thinking this might be a good part of our weekly rhythm, maybe Fridays.  It would be helpful for form drawing, which I have sadly fallen behind on.

Sunday is back as Baking Day.
Laurel really enjoyed kneading a tiny piece of dough, over and over.


Roan and Willow took ove the bulk of the kneading.
We are getting a hand-cranked grain mill, at Mike's suggestion.
I have wanted one for years and I think it will be great for the children.

And now, everyone is awake and it is time to get started on another week.  Happy Monday!

That last picture of Willow is a framer! Then again, so is the one of Laurel.

And that is one huge pizza.

It was huge, a real conversation piece.

When you mentioned elsewhere that the pizza would feed you for three meals, I was confused. We eat a large pizza in mostly one meal, with a little left over. Now I understand!

Yes, a large doesn't last long any more. :-)

That is an enormous pizza! It made me laugh. Those pictures of the children baking are so adorable. Elizabeth likes to wear a kerchief and an apron, too. : ) - Stacey

willow looks like she belongs in a Tasha Tudor book in the last picture. How precious!!!! And I totally want to come share your pizza.

She really loves A Time to Keep that you sent. You all could share the pizza with us. It's definitely large family friendly!

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
