My Weekend

It's winter.  To be honest...I hate winter, for the most part.  I don't like being cold, and I don't like dealing with snow.  But I live in New England and can't see myself living anywhere else.  I love having four distinct seasons, my favorite being fall.  The cool air and beautiful colors get me every year.  But back to right now and winter.  During the week, I can not avoid "dealing with" winter.  I must get out there to bring JT to preK, or supervise playing in the snow, or run errands, etc. - you know the drill.  But on weekends, since my dear hubby JC is home during the day and does his share of "Dad duty", I can barricade myself inside on Friday afternoon and not step foot outside again until Monday morning.  I try not to do that too often, but this weekend that was pretty much the story.  So how did I fill my time?

I made Ricotta and Mozzarella cheese for the second time in my life.

Steaming hot Ricotta, draining the whey off.
I allowed the destruction of many poor, little green pigs by some birds with attitude.
JT playing "Angry Birds" on my iPod Touch.
I made some lasagna with the above-mentioned cheeses, as well some homemade sauce.
Wish I had left more mozzarella cheese to put on top, but it was still yummy.

And I did a little laundry (though it still needs to be folded!), washed a few dishes, did general "Mom" type stuff, and may have spent too much time a little bit of time on facebook .
