Of Work and Rest

Thank you all for your well wishes. My nose has stopped running and besides feeling a little unenergetic I am well enough to go to school today. I daresay I'll be coming home at lunch time, rather than taking something to do there. Anne of Green Gables and the Ingalls family have been fine company over the last two days. Anne needs to finish her story though.

I am thinking 'light duties' over dinner tonight might be the way to go. The girls are doing such a marvellous job of cooking! Miss Sunshine made Potato & Leek soup the other night and Miss Mischief did indeed make dinner last night. I never thought it possible in the days when my children were tiny, but Mum can be unwell and truly rest without having to take care of everyone else as well. I am definitely reaping the rewards of having children who can cook!

I'm glad you're feeling better!

Is there an Anne of Green Gables series? Our library has a couple of AGG movies based on the the first two books, but not a series of shows. Which I would, I might add.

Not only do your children cook, but the cook real food. I'm so impressed!

There is a set of 3 movies ~ 9 hours of viewing! They're hard to find, over here anyway. There is 'Anne of Green Gables', 'AGG ~ The Sequel' and 'AGG ~ The Continuing Story'.

The second one has Anne teaching at Kingsport Ladies College and the third deals with Anne and Gil as adults and dealing with a world at war.

Unfortunately for my budding chefs there are no shortcuts to be found here. Only fresh vegies in the fridge and regular meat in the freezer. They've no choice but to cook real food. Besides, they've spent their lifetime watching me do exactly what they've been doing. They don't know any different.
