The rest of the day is more of the same: hanging out with family, maybe walk the kids through baking a loaf of bread, make dinner with DH (more onions!), possibly another game of Settlers tonight.
Sounds just lovely! Enjoy it. We all need a day like that every so often. I try for once a week since it seems our bodies are geared that way, and is Biblical.
Plus I just need it by then!
Today I got up just after 5, did my morning things including oil pulling with coconut oil. Almost made it 20 min.
Then I had a bunch of dishes. I was just salting the cast iron skillet clean when she got up, ready to play. With me. Only. Or be held. Grrr.
In the 3 min intervals between my sneaking of and her whining after me, I threw clothes in the dryer, finished cleaning the skillet and wiping the counters, made no knead artisian bread and finally got that cleaned up. I took some meat or to thaw for fajita night tomorrow and checked on the huge crock of pinto beams to have in today's chili and tomorrow's fajitas. I'll freeze what's left of the beans and chili for quick meals.
We woke hubby up, poor guy is worn out. We all sat/lay/crawled on the bed and talked a while. Then he got up and I made breakfast. I cleaned that up and swept.
Moved a shoe shelf to the room I plan to keep it in and moved an unfinished chair he made to where the shelf was and put my avacado plant on it.
I noticed I have maybe 2 date trees sprouting too! They took forever to do that.
Then I made chili and put my dough for the bread into the fridge.
I changed her messy diaper and threw the diapers all in the wash.
Then I made a drink and have a nursing toddler passed out in my lap, sounds like hubby is cutting wood.
Still need to:
Finish the bread
Put his lunch for work together
Put the food in the freezer, wash dishes
Mop, dust, vacuum, touch up the bathrooms
Finish making hubby's iced tea
Fold laundry, put away
Put the shoe shelf in the closet
Give her a bath
Sew some more on the diapers, changing a bunch of elastic. blah, not a fun project, but it needs done.
Finish documenting my essential oils test on Flickr
Might call my mom or my brother
If I get that done, I'll be happy as a clam, unlikly.
