Water play

on April 23, 2009

Today Froglet decided he would like to play with water on the balcony. I found him some water and various cups and pots, and then thought of giving him a paintbrush too, as I have read about painting walls with water on several other blogs recently.
After a while, he asked if he could paint the windows too. My first response was of course no, but then I remembered the old squeegee that lives in our shower… one sponge and some soapy water later, hey presto, free window cleaning.

Not very successful in terms of the result, but the process was greatly enjoyed and gave me some time to have an adult conversation with our visiting friend. I think we might do some more window-cleaning tomorrow!

In other news, I have discovered that when you don’t own a mixer, you should not try to hand-mix two loaves-worth of bread dough. It does not work with a fork (my usual implement), and if you resort to using your hands it makes them so sticky that you can’t do anything and have to get your husband to scrape the dough off them with a spatula. Which doesn’t really work either.
Still, the loaves look nice enough. I do love baking. It beats cleaning hands-down.

    Hmm… that window painting sounds good but what did you do with the coloured water which flowed to the floor or window sill – would it not stain?

    i haven’t made bread yet – but bought a cookbook – yet another one – in singapore so i might try it soon.

  2. “Painting” with water only – not with real paints!
