Wayne was home for lunch and I was feeling quite proud to be serving up a healthy homemade lunch, as he's been doing restaurant food all week . I had baked flaxseed bread, leftover kommst borsht, cheese and melons. The recipes for the soup and bread come from the 'mennonitegirlscancook blog' and turned out great!
After lunch Hanna and I had a semi-ride to Winnipeg with Wayne. She was so wound up that I thought I'd lose my mind by the time we got there and that we would never do this again. After a bathroom break, she settled and slept in the bunk for almost two hours. I really fought the urge for my usual nap, but I resisted the temptation by sneaking some of Wayne's coffee. I couldn't believe how comfortable he was driving that big rig in the city, definitely not a job for me! It was a well spent afternoon, relaxing even though I wasn't sleeping.
We were home at six and ready for supper. I did a quick purge of the fridge freezer and voila! a supper of perogies with onions, varsht and more soup. We've bathed, played with Hanna, and it's now nine thirty. It's been a full day! Surprisingly, I'm still feeling alert and my heart feels like its been time well spent.
And I hope God grants me a night of deep sleep and comfort...and I wish the same to all you busy moms and wives out there.
sweet dreams, Christina
