A very domestic day

Today, between watching's breathless coverage of the earthquake in Chile and the tsunami that wasn't in Hawaii, I finished knitting Z's scarf (a ruffled rib knit using Misti Alpaca Chunky, for those who care about that kind of thing), shopped both Whole Foods and Trader Joe's and cooked up a storm. I had one of Z's friends over in the morning, transformed taco night leftovers into taco salads for lunch, baked my weekly batch of granola, cooked lemon chicken and roasted cauliflower for dinner (for guests, no less!) and whipped up a batch of ginger spice cookies to bring to the Montessori school open house tomorrow.

Could there be a more fitting end to the day that reading Z a chapter of Little House on the Prairie? Well, aside from putting on an apron and pearls, perhaps.

Edited to add a picture of Z modeling her new scarf
