Creating Saturday

I had a sleepover at Kathleen's and Josh's house Friday night.
I awoke to the aroma of zucchini bread (yummy!) as Kathleen had already been up and baking.
By late afternoon she had created 2 loaves of zucchini bread, 4 loaves of banana bread and a batch of lemon cookies. Boy, the house smelled delicious!
(And she's still doing all this without countertops or a kitchen sink!)

On the lower level of the house, Josh used his power tools
and built maple and driftwood end tables and maple shelving for the kitchen.
His creative wood projects reflect his own designs and talent.

And I spent pleasant hours in the new upstairs nursery making burp cloths at the sewing machine. I smiled to hear the busy sounds of hammers and drills from the basement and
smell the delicious breads and cookies from the kitchen.
We were all busily and contently creating in our own ways as the day wore on,
each of us in our own part of the house.

The only one to poop out was Mr. Zeke. He tucked himself into a little corner of the woodshop/basement and fell asleep in the shavings and sawdust. With the volume of those power tools and Zeke's big ears, I'm not sure how he accomplished this, but this picture proves he spent much of his day dozing. Dreaming of quiet and carrots, no doubt.
