Things Going On Today…

While I have a minute to type.

*  About twenty minutes longer and I can take the pie out of the oven.

*  I made 7 jars of jam.  It would have been 8, but, well, accidents happen.

*  Bill took the kids to their T-ball game earlier today – I had about two hours of quiet while I made the jam.  Ahhhhhhhhhh.

*  Finally, the peapods have appeared – seemingly overnight.  The kids will eat them as fast as they appear, so don't expect to see any peapod recipes here featuring the year's harvest.

*  We have a Swimming Banquet to go to in a little over an hour.  The kids don't know it yet, but I believe they will each get some kind of award or certificate or something from their swim teachers.  Should be fun.

*  Alex's room is allllllllllmoooooooooooosssssssssssttttttttttttttttttt ready to prime and paint.  I know I've been saying that (or hoping it) for an eternity now, but this time it actually seems like a possibility.  Woo hoo!

*  Julia's room – not yet.  Little setback up there, but nothing we (or Bill, really) can't fix. 

*  Sometimes I have more fun making little treats with the scraps of pie dough than I have making the pie itself.

*  The canning bug has bitten me hard.  I've got plans, baby.  PLANS.

*  Bill has done all the work in the bedrooms today – including a ton of ceiling sanding.  THANK YOU!!!  I needed a break.  And besides, I was making jam and baking a pie.  Priorities are priorities!

That's about it for now.

  1. I get off work @ 1 p.m. and people always ask me what do I do for the rest of the day.
    Your list was pretty much alot like one of my days, just different things. I have a million things to do before I have to go to bed by 8 p.m. and it is just like @ work hawking the clock and running around to get it all done. Laundry, dinner, dishes at least twice if not three times, a power walk, blogs and e-mails, starightening up house which usually involves dusting with a damp dishtowel that was on the way to the laundry basket anyway, and at last a bath or shower. If you are not completely worn out @ the end of YOUR day, I want some of whatever YOUR taking! LOL
