Look familiar?

Each morning before school Maisie goes to where we keep her school uniforms and chooses what she wants to wear for the day.  My only input is in letting her know if she needs to wear a short or long sleeved shirt and because everything matches I don’t worry about what she chooses.  No muss, no fuss, no fighting and our mornings go well. 

IMG_0014E Today Maisie was quite delighted with her choice of clothes and asked me if I remembered when she first wore her watermelon skirt (because of the two little watermelon slices at the waist.)  I pretended not to remember.  In a completely exasperated voice Maisie reminded me that she wore this skirt on her first day of Kindergarten

IMG_6405b a Maisie has grown quite a bit in two years so the skirt is shorter on her but at least the waist finally fits her properly. 

In other new, the steroids and antibiotics kicked in and about 11am today it dawned on me that I no longer had razor blades in my throat when I swallowed, yeah!  So I think and hope that both Maisie and I will be feeling 100% very soon. 

I finally got a new recipe up over on Cook Lisa Cook for a Mango, Lime & Chile Spiced Ice Box Pie.  I know that it sounds a bit different but it was truly delicious and perfect on a hot summer day as there’s no cooking or baking involved.  Mango Lime Chili PieDoesn’t this just look cool, creamy and delicious!
