Monday on the Homestead
Rain, rain, rain.. lots of it! And cool temps to match the grey look.. Yes fall is here! Our water supply has been helped out a lot in the last couple of days. The weather reports says it will dry up again.. so we will see if we are out of the danger zone yet.
This morning I labeled my nearly 60 tubes of lip balm that I made yesterday, made oatmeal pancakes for breakfast, folded & put away one load of laundry and have another in the dryer (which I think just stopped.. ), one in the washer waiting patiently to go into the dryer and two more still left to wash. I started navy beans for soup for tonightâ€™s diner and I helped Jacob first with some spelling words and gave him a spelling test.. then helped Sierra with the same thing.
I need to get kids moving and get ready to head out the door.. music practice is today with the homeschool group. We sing for the senior luncheon in our community in November.
Tobin had car problems yesterday.. he said he knew what the problem was (he drives a diesel Jetta) and said it was a bad injector.. he got up very early this morning and fixed the car before heading to work! I told him he should drive Hannahâ€™s car and fix the car after work today... but he likes his little commuter car and wanted to get it fixed.. talented man that he is.... there are advantages to being a mechanicâ€¦ he messed around with cars long before airplanes.. LOL..
Well after we get home it will be time for house pick up and finish making dinner.. Then .. who knows.. Probably an early evening for Tobin and me since he was up early it woke me up and I did not sleep much after that.. Good thing my older girls handle the home so well in the eveningâ€¦ they tend to be the night crew.. I am the morning crew.. LOL..
Before I forget.. here is a pic of my grandson Caden that my daughter emailed to me this morningâ€¦ my how he is growing!!
That sums up my Monday on the homestead!
