Monday on the Homestead
Whew.. what a busy day!! I just now have some time to sit and post. Actually the last few days have been busy for me.
But at this point in my day I have my 4th load of laundry washing, Emily directed Jacob, Sierra and Isaac to do the basic clean up around the house which included vacuuming, sweeping and mopping. Emily cleaned up the kitchen and did a few extra things in there (wipe down cupboards, clean out a couple drawers that were a mess), Leanne worked in the laundry room and did a bit of reorganizing and wiping off the pantry shelves. Hannah left after doing the milking to go to the local vets office for her volunteer time. After that she will head to someoneâ€™s house to do some house cleaning.
I managed to get 3 aprons cut out for a friend, catch up on my Quicken, make a new batch of laundry soap (the 4 loads used the last of it!), and get my ham in the oven.
Jacob did some outside work that Tobin had left on a list for him to do and pulled out a new bale of hay for the goats and brought the baby goats to be back with there mamas (that is his daily job.. we separate kids from mom at night to milk in the morning).
So far I would say that we have had a very productive day on our homestead!! I still have laundry to hang, some sewing to do and dinner to make. And I will make a batch of lemonade to sip on when Tobin comes home from work. We will relax by the pond and swim a bit to cool off and enjoy some cold lemonade.. sounds like a great afternoon/evening!
Dinner tonight will be backed ham, Fabulous Baked Beans, coleslaw and maybe a dessert.. we will see if one of the girls is in the mood to do make somethingâ€¦
That sums up my Monday on the
