Monday on the Homestead
Today has been a busy Monday. I spent some of the day putting together gift baskets for my web store and taking pictures and getting it all up on my site. You can see them here: http://crystalscountrystore.com/giftbaskets.htm
Then it was laundry. Seemed like a lot more than usual today. Isaac had a spelling test and finished all the rest of his first batch of Paces. So I guess he is on to a new set of Paces tomorrow. I helped Sierra learn more about the dictionary, how it works and how to look up words. Jacob did his school pretty quickly. For now most of it is review. After school work was done it was lunch (leftovers from the weekend) and then hang laundry on the line, make sure the house was picked up and work some more on my site.
I am still in
Dinner tonight is Navy Bean Soup, Cole Slaw and Rosemary Bread Sticksâ€¦ Yumâ€¦ then we will watch another episode of the Pretender.. Not having network TV makes me really out of the loop on what is happening on this front.. but my kids started watching the Pretender (which is an old TV show) on DVD awhile back. They had borrowed it from friends. They loved it and started bugging Tobin and I to watch it. We rarely watch any TV.. we donâ€™t have time!! But after being bugged enough we said we would watch the first episode.. well we were hooked!! We are almost done with the first season (after almost a year! LOL.. shows we still donâ€™t watch much even when we are â€œhookedâ€!) When people ask me.. â€œhow do you do it all?â€ I guess I can say.. I donâ€™t watch TV and I donâ€™t sleep much! LOL ( I have talked previously about my 6 hour nights!)..
That sums up my Monday on my
