1. We bought Kerplunk this week! I had forgotten how much fun it is to play and it is a nice reminder for the kids that humans are as much fun to play with as computers…
2. Homemade butter is science in the kitchen. Get some cream and whip it through various stages of thin, thick, lumpy and separated until you are squeezing buttermilk out of your very own homemade butter. We used some buttermilk in cupcakes and I put the rest in an ice cube tray and popped it in the freezer for future cupcakes.
3. Over the weekend we saw the ‘Lost Buildings of St Louis’ exhibit at the Missouri History Museum. I love looking at historic buildings and these photos were no disappointment. It is a shame they are no longer standing, but I am pleased someone took photos of them for us to see now.
4. Mushrooms are starting to appear in the humid, damp woods. These are teeny tiny ones, but I don’t know which variety they are.
I hope you had a lovely week and have another lovely week planned.
Hey Clare. How fun are board games! I love them. Have never played Kerplunk, but what a great name. My faves are Articulate, Cranium and Pictionary. Those mushrooms are so delicate, at first I thought they were seed pods of some kind. Lovely photos as always! x
Cranium is a good one! We like Pictionary too. I wonder if the mushrooms will grow bigger? Maybe I should find them again and see.
