Today I blended up some yogurt thinned with milk and made popsicles. Not to creative, but it gets some calcium into some growing kids who don’t drink a lot of milk. Have any “smoothie” popsicle recipes you want to share?
I made a big plate of chocolate chip cookies for the kids, too. Funny thing. I don’t even like these cookies, but they sure do!
I’ve turned this mess into something we can live with. Good thing is that this stuff either found a home or was gotten rid of.
This is the part of the garage that seems to have stayed more garage than anything. The space is 30’ X 30’ and houses my plant room and a bathroom. It will also be the future home of a big kitchen. Can’t wait! :)
Ug! This desk. Homer brought it home for the girls and all their creative stuff. It goes from tidy to this in about a day. I wish they’d keep it organized.
This is the area to the left of the above photo (bathroom in the back). I still need to empty this craft table and take all the stuff upstairs. The skateboards are for a bench Nick and I are making. There’s also the scaffolding full of building supplies, but that stays. That’s what Homer rolls around on to build the ceiling as it is 11’ feet up (I think).
After dinner Homer cleaned the stove pipe. Then we built a fire so Lucas could hold a “party” by it for us all. He’s really getting creative with his make believe. Then we went upstairs to dig through fabric for a Christmas project only to find we don’t have what we need. Put the Littles to bed and now Emily is reading by the fire. For fun. That is a break-through for sure.
Elijah shoveled the stairs and sidewalk for me. So glad he had a good day today. He got a new video game out of the deal, but he would have gotten it anyhow. He’s spoiled. :) He did pay for half of it with a gift card so that’s a bonus.
I have heavy eyes now. Waking up at 5:30 and rolling out of bed at 6:00 (when the bathroom is free) is a new experience for me. I sure am getting a lot more done, but sure get tired by 8:00 and struggle to make 11:00 (I have shows I want to watch…looking forward to having a DVR to tape them and just go to bed at 9 with all the kids).
Hope you all had a great day as I did! :)
