What did we do today?

  • Dad hauled grain again for a farmer
  • Mom, Jacob and I mowed all the lawn (and Andrew did a little trimming)
  • Andrew baled the ditch hay
  • Watered the garden and strawberries
  • Transplanted a few tomatoes
  • Weeded in the greenhouse
  • Tilled a little
  • Cleaned the house---tidied up, dusted, vaccumed, swept, scrubbed, polished and shined.....
  • Made 2 pans of Shepherds pie and 1 chocolate cake
  • Did chores x2
  • Watered all the house plants
  • Andrew worked on cleaning up the basement even!
  • Moved Dad's swing under the trees, after pruning off branches that were in the way
  • Added some kitchen scraps to the compost bin
  • Washed, dried, and folded several loads of laundry and put them away
  • Changed around the sticky traps in the house to catch more bugs that have a way of getting in
  • Mom had a client here, so we had to set up the massage table, then take it down again
  • Mom and I played a few songs in our new patriotic piano duet book
  • The boys went over and stacked bales by Hazelton this morning
  • Set the table this evening---the fancy way (with my mom's grandma's china)
  • Ate our feast
  • Watched a movie
  • Said our prayers
  • Headed for bed
That's all.  :)

  We give thanks to the Lord often for keeping us safe as we do our work.~
