Well, I have a lot going on this weekend but I hope to get a start on this book. I have the print version of Mark Helprin's Winter's Tale sitting at home on my coffee table just waiting for me to curl up under a blanket with a fire going. This book tells the story of a middle-aged Irish thief who meets a dying privileged young woman when robbing her house. They fall in love, but that is only the beginning of the story. This book begins its tale during the turn of the century New York and continues to modern day, with many of the same characters.
Gluten-free play dough was pretty fun. We had a great time with the lumpy stick mess I made. We used natural spices and veggies to tint the dough. Turmeric was my favorite because of it cam out so bright. We also used the juice left in a can of sliced beets, paprika and cocoa for pink, orange, and brown.
