Creativity Over Cleaning

I realize it's become increasingly hard to give myself time. I run this business from our home. I love cooking and baking for our family but it's a part time job. Homemade marshmallows and soup and bagels are sooo good. And I get so much joy from doing it.

I crave more joy in my life.

And then there's the laundry, sweeping, and snack making that seem to work together to fill every other spare moment there is. Oh yeah, and I'm unschooling the hooligans.

Unschooling requires energy and attention and the willingess to go with the flow. And there's a whole lot of mental energy required to deschool myself.

sugar pie pumpkin ready to be roasted for pumpkin spice lattes and pie and roasted pumpking seeds

How about a pumpkin spice latte?

Oh, it's chilly out there this morning! Slippers are on, fire is lit and a frothy, warm, spiced drink is in my cup. Can you guess what it is? You got it  - a pumpkin spice latte. And I made it myself.

Yes, I fell down the internet rabbit hole that happens when you google "pumpkin spice latte". There are about 6 million variations on the drink but here are my criteria:

Autumn Crafts - Beeswax Leaf Dipping

Autumn Crafts - Beeswax Leaf Dipping

Last year we started doing a new Autumn craft that preserves leaves perfectly and they're a lot easier to keep track of.

It's a quick craft, takes very little prep and smells delightful. And with enough newspapers spread out, it's any easy clean-up, too.

Are you ready to try dipping leaves in beeswax? Oh yes, you are!

The Best Play Dough Recipe In The World.

The Best Play Dough Recipe In The World.

Curious kids come to sensory play quite naturally. As a child, I remember loving the feeling of putting my hand in a bag of dried beans or rice. I loved the smell of fresh raspberries as I picked them in the warm sun. I love balancing and hopping over cracks in the sidewalk and I loved homemade playdough.

Not all playdough recipes are created equally but I do believe I found the best one ever. Once sealed in a mason jar this stuff lasts for months or until it is forgotten outside or in the couch or crumbled around the house. You know how it goes :)

Reason #546 Of Why I Love Homeschooling - Cinnamon Buns

Reason #546 Of Why I Love Homeschooling - Cinnamon Buns

The hooligans and I had such fun baking these. We actually do most of our home learning when we bake.They loved making the Tanzhong in the first step and it opened up all kinds of conversations about baking, Asia, language, chemisty, stories from when I was a pastry chef. And we smelled the cinnamon and meausred and mixed and rolled the dough. And while it rested to let the yeast do it's magic we rested too. And talked a little bit about yeast and sourdough and looked for the dental floss.

Bananas and Boundaries

Bananas and Boundaries

I can't always count on the hooligans for help baking anymore. Baking has been "our thing" since they could stand beside me on a chair in the kitchen. But they are very busy individuals, as you can imagine, so all I can do is create the opportunity. And if they care to join me then I'm there to help.
