'Eating the fish!'

Early morning wakeup, watercolors first thing on the itinerary (paint your face and the table and the floor.) Next up breakfast!
It seemed like a 3 'flavor' pancake sort of day. I found a brand new buttermilk pancake recipe that worked amazingly with Barley flour.

1 1/2 cups barley flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 Tablespoons cane sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 large egg
2 Tablespoons canola oil

Whisk together dry ingredients. Whisk together eat ingredients. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. (Batter should be slightly lumpy.)

We cleaned and wasted time. Buzz got a bath and then got dressed up just like his Sababi. It was pretty cute. Then Z came home and the boys went out to adventure at IKEA and Givat Shmuel for some birthday party fun.
I stayed home - presumably to relax (after an exhausting week of one-on-one time with Buzz.) I actually had big plans to cook parts of shabbos and catch up on some tv - but then the power went out for three hours. Thankfully (as Freddie pointed out) it was still daytime, so I curled up with a book and read. A whole bunch.

I guess I'll deal with Shabbat prep tomorrow. At least I swept the floor today. That's one abominable chore crossed off the list. Lucky Z.
