little sweet things

So this morning I woke near sunrise, I had to force my body out of bed to the shower. When I exited the house I walked through a spider's web and sneezed all the way to the car. Apparently my allergies are acting up today. I arrived at the house two minutes early after listening to Ezekiel on my ipod. Wow, I need to learn more about Ezekiel.

I made the girls breakfast and we then had a small dance party where the girls were learning more dance moves like twirling and raising their hands in the air. I was having a lot of fun, because now they are copying my dance moves more than ever. Afterwards we played and then I knew it was time for a nap when one of the girls was laying down while coloring with her crayons. So funny! They put themselves to bed and I went up and covered them. I then did some research to find a potential beach spot for this afternoon. I was craving a peppermint mocha so much that I attempted at making my own right here where they happen to have all the correct ingredients. For a first time try, I'd say I did pretty well making myself a latte. I am enjoying it as I type.

So I decided to bake bread. Yes, bread from scratch. I wanted to use the whole wheat yeast. I had not made bread with yeast since el dia de los muertos in middle school.  I then had the tangled song going through my head. I have done so much already before noon. Don't worry I did start to learn a new song on the piano somewhere in there too. I should start to be more attracted to the idea of waking up early, but morning Clara needs the extra jolt to get herself out of bed, like a job.

On Tuesday the other girls I watch had me act out the Tangled song, and they kept saying, Wow! It looks like you are the one singing. It was so entertaining to act it out for them. They were giving me all the props at the right time. So here's a toast, holding my latte high in the air, to the little sweet things that make life enjoyable.
