I confessâ€¦ Iâ€™ve been dabbling in fiction writing between naps and playtime. Itâ€™s nice to have found something just for me; itâ€™s a good way to exercise my adult brain instead of my mommy brain. So our activity of the day â€“ finishing up the chalkboard wall. The big idea behind the chalkboard wall is that I can write out plot outlines. Wonâ€™t that be fun? Almost like installation word art.
Iâ€™ve never been a big fiction writer, but itâ€™s so exciting to create characters and worlds. My brother-in-law Nick has gotten into creating scenes with me, and weâ€™ve been scribbling the plot points out on pieces of papers. I think the chalkboard wall will make our brainstorming sessions even better. For now, itâ€™s just for fun. But who knows. Maybe weâ€™ll hit on a great story together!
Lunch, lunch. A yummy stir-fry:
In the mix:
Iâ€™ve always debated whether eggs should be scrambled before being added to the stir-fry or mixed it raw with the rice and then cooked â€“ this time I mixed the eggs in, and man â€“ it was tasty.
