The balance of our week has been relatively quiet – which is ok by me!
For some reason, Isaac has decided that nights are for singing and laughing and playing, while early mornings into the afternoons are for sleeping, sleeping and sleeping! We usually don't have any idea why he occasionally gets his days and nights mixed up, and this time is no exception. We just do our best to keep him awake during the day, and hope he will break out of the cycle before too long.
I was looking for a good guacamole recipe yesterday. I've tried several, but I haven't been really pleased with any of them so far. I finally "googled" "guacamole" + "authentic recipe" and on page 3, found the Pioneer Woman's recipe for guacamole and pico de gallo.
The recipes were fabulous!!! So simple and yummy. I don't know why I didn't think to search her site first. Maybe because most of her recipes sound so rich with butter, cheese and meat that it didn't dawn on me to try her site for two vegetarian dishes. These were great though. I heartily recommend them!
Well, Doug has the day off today, and we're trying to find something fun to do. It has to be an inside activity, though, because the temps are supposed to be in the mid 90s today. We're thinking of going back to the Wh*le Foods Store. What??? Isn't going to the grocery considered "something fun to do" at your house??? : )
Isaac will be enjoying the "BOOMS!" this weekend!!! The first July 4th after his adoption, we went with friends to the local fireworks display. We had no idea how he was going to react, but he loved it!!! Giggled and laughed the whole time. We've not taken him for years due to the seizures, but he still enjoys the big noises every year. We call them "BOOMS!" because to Isaac, that is a very funny word. : )
Well, the boys are waking up…I guess I need to finish up. I pray you
have an exciting and safe Fourth of July holiday. For those of you
outside the States, go ahead and light a few sparklers on our behalf!
You know you want to! : )
