games, hodge podge & two requests
Dame des Piques that lasted at least three months. (I believe I won, incidentally). We started our game collection even before that, and have quite a selection in our game cupboard. Adam took Phillip to a yard sale a few weekends ago, and they found a treasure - a 2nd edition Wheel of Fortune game from 1986! It combines everything Phillip loves - puzzle solving, spinning a spinner, letters and words, and rules! Oh, this boy loves rules.
We stopped at Value Village on our way home earlier this week, and found a like-new Rush Hour game (99 cents!) that Phillip has also been enjoying. Thomas has been playing with Operation a lot lately, which I found at Frenchy's.
Do you have any game recommendations for us? Either for the boys or us grown-ups, or even better - something that we can all play with in some way. I'll keep my eyes peeled.
It's late in the season now, but if you can manage to find some fresh peas (I saw some at the market last week) you can make some Hodge Podge. Rachael's recipe is perfect. We made it a few weeks ago, and it was so. delicious. If you've never had hodge podge, it's a sort of vegetable chowder using the perfect little carrots and new potatoes that are available now.
The in-laws are here, which is wonderful. I'm hoping to get out and take some pictures very soon. I'm really enjoying having my iPhone for quick pictures, but it's not like a real camera. I need to play with it some more; I have to figure out how to capture things a little bit better. Any tips on iPhone photography? Speaking of which, you can find me on Instagram - I'm Sherrie_birchbarksoap.
