This morning I made Nick bacon, eggs, toast, potatoes, pancakes with a big glass of apple juice. THIS is the breakfast of champions! :) (I am scared of him growing up and moving away, and I won't get this chance for much longer).
My husband bought me this cool smoke stack indicator thingie. (That's technical terms). As you can see here my reading is "creosote". Not good. The truth is my wood sucks. Several years ago we asked three boys to bring the wood out of the "hole" to dry, and they ignored us. Of course, they were more than happy to ring up a huge debt for trips to Minnesota, Detroit, California, Arizona and Canada to play hockey (and we are still paying today), but they couldn't carry the wood. Well, two of the boys are bringing the wood up now, but it is wet. I'm having a hell of time getting and keeping this in the burn zone with with wet wood.
It's still cold and I am sick of it. Really. Enough is enough.
Out my window...the sun is showing its face more and more each day...but it is still cold.
Hubby brought home a discarded stained queen sized comforter. I decided to dye it purple for the kids. My washer was not big enough for it.
We ended up with totally cool tye-dye. Couldn't have done this if I tried, and of course, all the kids like it and want it!
Another day gone by. Nick took his brother to the high school basketball game and then drove him to his basketball practice. Dad and I played with the little ones and watched "regular" TV...something we never do. *
*edited to remove the complaining. I'll save it for another day.
