Facebook decided that I was spreading viruses and is preventing me from commenting or updating on Facebook for 24 hours. After scanning my computer to be sure that I did NOT have a virus (I don't, other than this sinus/chest thing which can go blow a goat) I decided that since I cannot randomly plod through the world at large and express my thoughts on it on Facebook, I would do an update of major randomness.
Homeschooling - We did stuff FOR SCIENCE today. Little Guy learned about states of matter and converting material from solid to liquid to gas using water. He also got to see "condensation" in action. We also officially practiced the scientific theory and made hypotheses (guesses). One thing I hope my Little Guy understood after today's practice - just because a hypothesis is incorrect, it is not bad. An incorrect hypothesis can often lead to a correct answer. Yesterday, we planted some flowers out front for him. He got to pick out a wildflower seed pack at the local store and we found a suitable spot in the front yard. We even marked down on the calendar when to start checking for seedlings.
While we planted flowers yesterday, I put the ingredients for dough into the bread maker. However, because I am me, I could not leave well enough alone and completely ruined the first batch of bread. With a minor adjustment and a little patience, I left the next batch alone and ended up with a loaf that was edible. I also found ham on sale at Meijer for $.59 a lb and made a 10 pound ham for dinner one night (complete with a honey-brown sugar-brandy glaze). It was delish. Last night for dinner, we used some of the left-overs and some swiss cheese to make Hot Ham and cheese sandwiches. I bet it would be even better on the homemade bread.
Sprng is in the air and we opened up the porch for use last night. The heat is supposed to go up to near 80 this weekend and, I must admit, I'm kind of excited about it. Also, after next week, I will be on vacation for a week. You have no idea how much I am looking forward to it.
