Good morning;

today, i

- stayed in bed a little longer (delegated to DH the getting the two eldest children up) ... that was a sort of private celebration of school starting and avalability of a little bit more "me time"

(i really seem to have some sort or ADD that gets far worse when i'm in company ...)

- took DD2 to school

- went for my mammogram & ductal sonogram = all is well, for which i'm thankful and overjoyed

it was a new doctor (not so many do the "ductal" thing) but really nice, explained well, answered all my questions etc ...

- went to the store to pick up stuff & it's just been delivered & i've put it away

- sent an e-mail, wrote a post

- have started a load of laundry, still need to put it up to dry

- need to stop browsing the internet and seriously review my dance routine for tomorrow lunchtime !!!!!

- prepare whatever i need to take with me (i sew during a group talk there is in my neighborhood this afternoon, i need the stuff for tomorrow lunchtime & my sewing machine is presently at the repair shop )

 

... i suppose i'll do my chores of the day after 5:00  pm !!!

Ahh.... Feels good to be back!  I did more today than I have in the past month it feels like!

 

Did 2 loads of dishes

cleaned kitchen

 swept and mopped kitchen floor 

washed kitchen rugs

cleaned all the cat dishes (bowls, self-feeder, etc)

went to the bank

dropped off some books at the used bookstore - that box has been sitting in my dining room for over a month!  Today I had the car so I made sure to get it done!

dropped off a box of stuff at goodwill-  ditto above ^^^^^

 

Late last night swept and vacuumed the living room and dining room (after husband rearranged our living room)

 

SO much more left to do, but it will have to wait until tomorrow!  Hope I can keep my momentum going!

Hey Isafrench, what is whitebait?
I worked today. Most everyone worked. It's not a holiday here.
I plan to do nothing more than put out the trash. And relax the rest of the evening.

whitebait is very small fish (one to two inches maximum) that you fry whole (tail & head, non gutted) ... i think it's delicious .... it was a bit heavy to digest though since i had covered the pan with oil (i don't have anything for deepfrying) & am not sure how i'm going to fare on Monday (am on a weight loss thread ....)

Bejeweled, i might use this recipe next time

http://www.teara.govt.nz/en/photograph/5100/whitebait

since it should be less greasy and easier to digest ...

the local catch seem a tad different from that nz photo

this photo

http://www.google.fr/imgres?imgurl=http://www.fishfanatics.co.uk/dynimage/product-131-standard-640x480.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.fishfanatics.co.uk/shop-whitebait-1.php&h=480&w=640&sz=80&tbnid=KzgE-gJpe_NXWM:&tbnh=95&tbnw=127&zoom=1&usg=__MqEjTadU1R-pLP6IMx8Vrs12UNM=&docid=bGhoDWGOjZvpcM&sa=X&ei=qmSDUb3KCZG1hAeQuICgAQ&ved=0CFgQ9QEwCw&dur=4912

looks more like what i ate

& it says "inch long young Herrings or Sprats"

i had no idea, just saw my parents order some at restaurants and learned about that dish that way ...

Oh wow, whitefish are tiny! How interesting. That sounds like a nice, simple recipe (just my kind).
I'm so happy. I'm staying home today. I am so tired from a long week. We spent all day yesterday getting our new passports in order, so I haven't had a proper day of rest.

I plan to:
-make breakfast and coffee
-get DD off to school
-reeeelax a nice long while teapot2.GIF

Mostly I basked in the sunshine and watched my boys play, but I also:

 

Washed 2 loads of dishes (and still the counter is full, it never ends I swear)

2 loads of laundry

Harvested, washed, and hung up some peppermint from the garden-  going to make some tea for a friend and perhaps a salt scrub too!

Planted my pumpkin seeds

Watered the garden-  It's finally been warm enough to need my help!

Made dinner-  pork and bok choy stir fry over brown rice

Did a lot of research on some projects I want to get started

So, so tired.  I think I over-extended myself this weekend in the garden and in the kitchen, but it was so good to be busy and tend my plants and my family by cooking yummy nourishing meals!  But I'm feeling it today... ugh.

 

2 loads of dishes

2 loads of laundry

Made dinner

Watered the garden

Did some light baking-  Oatmeal raisin scones for the kiddies and their friends!

hello, today was day 2 of a 5 days long week end (no school for 3 week days this week)

 

yesterday afternoon, agreed to meet up with friends at the swimming pool, it was nice for my kids to be able to meet up with other kids & play together (except the sand in the hair at the volley ball pitch ...)

=> ended up walking home with 2 extra kids, renting a film on the way back & they left at past 8:00 pm so it was a little too intense and too long for me ...

only managed the washing up and one load of laundry

 

today, i tried  a "NO TV day"

- to get eldest two children to complete homework, & a class mate dropped by for help in several subjects

- still managed 2 loads of laundry done and up

- a little shopping in the early morning

- sanitising the toilet & washing up after lunch

- a decent lunch

- i had a nap whilst DH minded the kids outside

- send the kids and DH to a fast food place for diner with a 20% off coupon

- the eldest two kids did a bit of crochet & our visitor tried his hand at it too but he has learning difficulties so not sure he'll be able to pick it up ...

- visit an ex-neighbor to help her with basic computing tasks (i don't know much ... but she knows less than i do, so i can actually teach her a few things !!!)

- am trying to complete a few hand sewing tasks

- ex-neighbor has the same brand of sewing machine that i have so i might be able to borrow her cable & pedal on Saturday evening (if the repair shop has not found mine in the mean time !)

- am vegging at the computer since the children don't seem able to go to sleep and i'm craving alone time ...

Coming off my work week and the house is a disaster of course.  This morning was utter chaos as I was trying to get boys dressed (their clean clothes were never folded from last week's laundry, and I couldn't find a single pair of shoes, or coats, or sweaters), as I was trying to pack lunches (no clean containers, couldn't find their cloth sandwich bags, no water bottles, etc).  Therefore today I decided to do a little decluttering and organizing!  (especially after a whole tin tub of can lids nearly fell on my head as I was trying to find a lid to a jar...  Still have a long way to go, but today I:

 

Organized all my canning lids and jar lids-  Canning lids went into a cleaned out drawer, and then I went through all the jar lids and took out the ones that didn't fit anything and threw them away.  

 

Organized saved container lids-  I had 20x more plastic container lids than I did plastic containers.  I threw out 3/4 of them!  That emptied a lot of space!

 

Folded the boys' laundry

Did a load of dishes

Did 2 loads of laundry

Took out 3 bags of garbage/ recycling

Cut and salvaged what healthy peppermint I had left from the garden-  hung them to dry while I cut out and threw away the diseased ones.  Didn't get it all, but enough to make me feel better for today!  Will do the rest this weekend.

Started my kefir grains

Hi IsaFrench!

 

  I bought the mix from Bob's Red Mill-  all you do is add water (or was it milk-  I don't remember!) and mix, knead, and roll out.  You are in France, right?  I'm guessing they don't have Bob's Red Mill products there.  Sorry I don't have a real recipe to post for you!  They weren't very good anyway greensad.gif

well ... if they aren't very good then ... never mind !

we have two local shops that sell a verysmall selection of UK-US-Australian products ....

but you are right, i was after a "from scratch" recipe ....

 

this is the 3rd day the children are back at school (not the youngest one though and Wedn is only half day for school) & i haven't recovered from their 5 day week-end yet !

yesterday i managed two loads of laundry, sanitising the toilet, learning a 40 seconds dance routine, going to dance class, vegging a bit at the library with DD1 & attending a parenting discussion group in the evening ....

 

today i went for a blood test early morning, have taken my first round of medicine, have prepared a packed lunch for DD1, am trying to get DD2 ready so we can walk to the library (so that i can chat my mommy friends ...)

 

Mother's day is not for another few weeks in France ... not sure i'll get something this year, the head of kindergarten has decided that getting the kids to make something is not part of the official curriculum (some parents stormed out of some school meeting last year over the issue ... we felt she hadn't communicated about itbeforehand & she maintained she had done the same thing the previous year .... all parents did NOT recollect the same ...) and DS and DD1) are no longer in grade school (where all teachers make sure the kids "do something" even if it's just a 3 line poem to bring back home on a colored piece of paper .... DH has been ill all winter so i doubt that mothering Sunday is on his mind (he's already ignored his own mother who is in the UK ..... & usually mentions that i'm not his mom ..... am desappointed that he doesn't get beyond that statement to see that i'm the mom of his children ....)

 

i need to go and scrub the sink and the inside of the bath this morning ....
