I wanted to get for Lucian a nice set of color pencils because he has been working hard at coloring intricate pictures neatly, and also because I got the impression he felt that he didn’t have enough variety to color green. Anyhow, the nice set of pencils came in an ugly tin so I decoupaged the top, added some dragon stickers and tinted it with some ink — now it looks like it belongs to Lucian.
Kids have been enjoying coloring stained glass mini-mandalas. They cheer up our windows a lot.
It looked fun so I joined too. I colored this one.

We get rotisserie chicken every week because it is one of very few source of protein Immi eats. After few years of weekly rotisserie chicken, I can’t possible eat another bite of it, but I make soup stock with it almost every week which I still enjoy. I put in whatever veggie bits I happen to have (which is sometimes nothing) but today’s got carrots and italian parsley from the garden. …And this is the best stock I’ve ever made, including ones I made from whole [not rotisserie] chicken! It is absolutely amazing how much difference the extreme freshness of these ingredients make in a soup.
