~ Woke up. Made lunch and english muffin for Mattie. Gave him a smooch and sent him on his way.
~ Two babies woke up to see him off too. They "helped" me brown ground beef and get a Crockpot meal underway.
~ woke up big kids. Made breakfast (granola cereal)
~ Children did chores, I did watering.
~ Took a hot, steamy shower and did.not.want.to.leave. (Seems like it was my first hot shower since springtime! Can it be?)
~ gathered up school books for a visit with another homeschooling Mama
~ went visiting and while out, picked up my orders of coconut oil and lye (I'll give you three guesses what I will be making!). Got home at 4:15. (So yeah- today is not going to be terribly productive!)
~ put books away
~ replanted all the perennials the neighbor dropped off and put sawdust around them for mulch
~ harvested lemon verbena and hung to dry
~ harvested last of the tomatoes to ripen inside (it will likely frost tonight.)
~ Got supper around (Crockpot beef and veggies, leftover corn casserole-I made a double batch yesterday!- and Caprese Flatbread like Olive Gardens. Did you know they are kind enough to share recipes?)
~ played a game of chess with Matt. I lost. :-(
~ sorted and dated eggs, tidied mudroom a bit
~ did dinner dishes
~ cut Matt's hair
~ swept kitchen floor
~ heading to bed now to crochet.
Tomorrow is going to be a CRAZY busy day. My to-do list will be short, but the listed items will be BIG projects. Must get rested up.
