Rainy Rain Rain

It has been a rainy couple of weeks around these parts. A sure sign that winter is on its way. While we all like the rain, we certainly have been spending more and more time indoors, which I'm sure was a large factor in us all getting some unpleasant colds this week.
How we've been occupying ourselves:

Games for Q,

puzzles for T,

knitting for mama (combined with some stress as the winter holidays draw near),

And, just for fun, we made some vegan cheese (the Colby Cheese from the Uncheese Cookbook). It is made mostly of cashews and roasted red peppers and is not bad. I mean, certainly isn't going to fool anyone, but we all liked it just fine. We promptly made some grilled cheese sandwiches, which the children had never had before, and were delighted with.

The colds, combined with our wee-est one teething has resulted in some rough nights, and tough days. Lots of sling time and homeopathy for this little one.

I do apologize for the wee absence there, friends. I hope you are all well!

Oh you poor wee things. Hope you get better soon x

Melissa said...

Aww...poor little guy! Hope he's all better now.

It's been pretty rainy and cold here too. November rain isn't much fun.

That cheese sounds yummy. I've been thinking about getting that book. We normally make grilled cheese with the vegan rice cheese singles.
