Later we moved the castle to the playroom in the basement ready for the next attack from knights using nerf guns. When you are six it's OK to mix modern technologies with the middle-ages.
We are already looking forward to our next visit and the attack with our "Nerf Guns"

Kate was very focused on placing her ornament to her satisfaction.
When we were done Kate was pleased and expected presents to be under the tree when she got up this morning.
It was a wonderful weekend that disappeared too quickly.

Regardless, Owen and Kate were delighted and we had to get it inside as quickly as possible. Here Owen is helping his Mom place towels under the tree; the floor needed protection from the melting snow.
Today we will watch the kids decorate the tree; a "new tradition" for us.

We decided to add roasted walnuts to this batch of sourdough bread. This enhances the flavour of the nuts and adds a richness to the loaf.
Time for another delicious slice covered in butter.

Here is one possibility but it looks a little thin and maybe needs a few more years of growth.
We live in a remarkable age where we can chat on the phone way back in the bush, send pictures to everyone and stay connected in a way my grandmother didn't even dream about.
Safe travels everyone and thanks for stopping by.

If you've never tried kombucha it is a healthy drink made from fermented tea. It is thought to have originated in Manchuria or Russia but no one is certain.
This will be our morning drink throughout the winter.
There is plenty of information on the internet if you are interested in making your own.
Now it's off to cut wood and burn some extra calories.
Enjoy the day and thanks for stopping by.
