Just looking at this makes my skin crawl. I absolutely CAN'T STAND when anyone writes on themselves. I yell at anyone who does it. So this super freaked me out AND as if that wasn't enough, I still can't get the pen off my hand and I'm feeling some serious anxiety over it.
Anything for the project.
Strayed a bit from the prompt, because who wants to look at unappetizing food. And this dinner was seriously one of the best I've ever made. Thank you recipe from Martha Stewart and thanks to her for it actually being simple enough to follow and use normal human being ingredients.

After a long day at the zoo, we decided that macaroni and cheese sounded like the perfect dinner. Then we decided it definitely needs some smoked sausage in it. The finished product smelled SO GOOD. Then I knew it would totally count for the prompt!
Step One: Read the Prompt
Step Three: Ask husband to borrow his X-Acto knife. He can't find it, but offers a box cutter. Make it work to start removing speech bubbles.
Step Five: Breathe deeply as 7yo makes color suggestions for each haiku from my choice of colored pens.
Step Six: Explain to 7yo how to write a haiku. Breathe even more deeply as she then tries to count syllables on her fingers while I'm still trying to write.
Step Seven: Take picture the minute it's finished then run and hide so that I don't have to listen to anymore syllable counting.

Decided to go find my own instructions to ignore. But then I didn't plan it out very well. Ah well, you get what I was going for. I think this was instructions for an origami bird. I used it to make the only other origami I can do without instructions.
Casserole: Pork, peas, noodles
Son ate noodles first.
And as a bonus, I was looking through prompts and I actually remembered doing some of them. Turns out I did the project but never posted it, so I'll add this one as a bonus. Last April my theme was stars, and I made this one out of french fries!

I can't stand the idea of making a mess on purpose, so I had to go for the cheat. I've made enough inadvertent messes to know what it feels like when you spill something you really need.
Bonus: As I was reading prompts some of these started to sound familiar. I looked through old photos and found some I had done but never posted. Last April, when my theme was stars, I made this one out of spilled glue.
I remembered being terrified of trying this one the first time around. Photography has never been fun for me, nor am I very good at it. But I noticed that my phone camera had a time-lapse feature. I decided to try that. It didn't do exactly what I wanted, so I looked for a free app, which I found and it worked GREAT!
If you're really curious to actually read the haiku, here ya' go!
