Comments for Spring Cleaning Round 2

Play-DohSpring Cleaning Round 2: 03/04/07

We had a very busy day although we didn't get the remaining two pieces of furniture built. Ian needed time to study so we said goodbye to him shortly after breakfast.

Breakfast though was a funny one. Ian tried to make biscuits but we didn't quite have enough ingredients so he tried to make due. Unfortunately his experamention turned out awful. I think its the first made up recipe of his that has been an all-out failure. Over all he's a good cook but not these faux-biscuits! We gave up and had toast and eggs; they were very good.

Before Ian left for his study-session he finished setting up Sean's computer. He had to update the operating system and that took about an hour.

Meanwhile I tackled the kitchen. It had gotten a little out of control. I lugged the garbage out, put everything away and scrubbed everything. Sean pitched in by sweeping the floor.

While Ian was out Sean, Harriet and I went to the park. We had planned to walk so that Sean could ride his bike. Unfortunately his head has grown too big for his helmet. Instead we put the tricycle in the car and drove there. I'm glad we did because Sean's trike has gotten out of alignment in the few months it's been in storage. Ian and I will have to have a look at it to see if we can tighten things up to control the alignment problem.

At least Sean had fun at the park. He climbed, slid, swung and ran around. At one point he face-planted off the swings but got up unhurt and laughing. Harriet spent half the time at the park sitting (yes, she can sit up now) next to me on a bench and the other half sleeping in her sling.

It was a busy and tiring day.
