Laundry, re-invented..

 I found all of my sorted & folded laundry piles thoughtfully… “refolded” and shoved into a laundry bag… I love my two year old but he is not quite a labor-saving device yet. Another setback to spending time learning about blogging.

Projects touched so far this morning… 1. I made some wonderful fermented oatmeal porridge for breakfast, per Nourishing Traditions cookbook, and refilled the jar. I have a food intolerance that bothers me if I eat grain and dairy products within 6 hours of each other, but fermenting the oatmeal makes it more digestable and the nutrients more bioavailable as it neutralizes phytates. It’s 3pm now so I better redirect my attention to dinner instead of on finishing the stuffed animals for my 4 month old for Christmas.
