Well Tuesday was spent mostly off the homestead. I had to go grocery shopping today. I took the whole family with me too. Hannah has been doing a house sitting, goat sitting/milking job these last few days. She will be doing this for the rest of the week. She is also commuting back and forth to work so her life has been hectic.. but today was her day off and she wanted to come to town with us. We had a nice day. I went to both Costco and Winco.
While we were gone Tobin took her car for a test drive. She had been telling him it was making funny noises. He took for a rather tough test drive and the CV joints failed. We were very happy to see this happen to him rather than to her while she is out driving on the hwy. Her job is about an hour away from home and her work.
Tobin asked me if I wanted to join him for the trip into town (back into town for me) with him so he could pick up the CV joints… I said sure!! We were back home in a couple of hours and now he is cleaning up his shop so he can work on her car (these are the times I am so thankful he is a mechanic!). In the meantime there were some goats that needed her attention so she is driving his car for now. Emily and Leanne went with her to give her some company.
While Tobin and I were in town everyone unloaded the groceries and put things away. Emily made a batch of lentil chili and some creamy onion soup. The house smelled heavenly when we walked back in.
Right now the house is quiet.. Jacob is out working in shop with Tobin and Sierra and Isaac are just playing quietly. Gives me a few minutes to sit and blog and maybe do some writing.
That sums up my Tuesday on (or rather mostly off) the
