Friday on the Homestead
Whewâ€¦ all I can say is.. HOT!! Right now the thermometer in my back yard says 102 degrees! I guess the heat wave finally made it here... That is pretty hot for these parts! I laid down and took a nap and let the fan blow on me.. the kids headed to the pond. Tobin and I will go cool off in the pond in a bit.
I was going to make soap.. but it is so hot right now that I donâ€™t have the motivation to do much of anything. I may be making soap at when it is somewhat cool.. LOL..
Let see other than that Friday on my homestead has been mellow. Jacob and Isaac had a friend over last night and they stayed up until the wee hours of the morning so I never even saw them until about 10:AM. Emily and Leanne had a cleaning job to do so they were out of the house by 8:AM. Tobin got up early to gather wood from our property in the coolness. So the house was pretty quiet.
I am not cooking today. Thankfully we have plenty of chicken pasta salad leftover from last night and we can eat sandwiches. Tomorrow I think we will grill something outside or I will put the crockpot outside.
Tonight the older girls are going to a friendâ€™s house to play some board games and have pizza. So that will leave me, Tobin and the 3 younger ones at home.. should be nice and quiet with the teenagers gone! J
Well it is almost time to head to the pond and cool offâ€¦
