Kate, I finally went to a dance class last night. It was wonderful and painful! Just like I remembered it to be. Actually, truth be told, I kinda forgot the unforgiving ways of a ballet teacher and actually burst out in laughter because of the amount of pain I was in, which was met with a withering look. To say I am sore today is an understatement. This left me with trying to come up with some calm activities to occupy the day. So we painted! Here are Peter's masterpieces.
I helped a bit and I did that black and white dotted piece. Here's my mostly white piece. I don't know why I do this so sparingly because it really was so much fun. Especially for Peter. His enthusiasm and pride made me so very happy.
I moved on to Ikea to get the floating shelves I need for my dining room and was tempted by this idea for my kitchen.
I finished off with dinner at my parents where my mom made this amazingly beautiful and delicious salad. It's arugula, spinach, fennel, roasted golden beets, candied walnuts and feta with a balsamic vinaigrette. It's key to have a high quality balsamic vinegar.
Overall it was a lovely day. On to folding laundry this evening....waah waah.
