...and they all just blend together...
The cows down the road, and the horses, and the TRUMP 2020 flag hanging from the barn...what a nice afternoon for a walk.
Now, it's late afternoon coffee time while Jonathan, such a good boy, is grilling burgers.
We had a very busy day. We cleaned out the linen closet in the hallway, AND the laundry room. We sorted and folded and washed and dried, made bags for the thrift store, and for the garbage-io. Shh, there were three strollers in the laundry room. We only saved one. One was an umbrella stroller from when EMILY was a baby, and she's 35.
We found things we didn't know we had, like the copper brownie pan (thank you, Cheryl!), and a bag of goodies and trinkets from the costume jewelry clearance at Kohl's. We found treats, too:
Christmas Reese's trees and miniatures!
Our laundry room is now cleaned and organized. We got rid of the last remaining sock basket, now that all keep their socks in their own drawers in their own rooms. For years and years, the dreaded sock basket sorting was an EEK producing experience. Abigail, Charlotte Claire, and I pulled out the pairs we could match, and actually dumped the rest...years worth of socks from the bottom of the basket, with no matches, into the trash, and please: don't tell me that I could have used them for something. I need LESS stuff!
We're not bored yet. The state has ruled that there will be no April break this year. More packets will be delivered, more school work, which is actually welcome news. The kids have moved along at lightening speed, and getting work done keeps them busy. Anyway, the district is sending out more work, the buses will be stopping at each house, and the superintendent says the kids will also be getting a surprise. I am intrigued, and can't wait to see what it'll be!
Hopefully the weather will warm up and we can get outside more and get the yard nicer. It's actually nice to have the kids here, ready and willing to get things done. It's nice to go on walks with them, and plan meals, watch The Simpsons...they've been playing The Settlers of Catan, I let them order an expansion pack.
Anyway, it's going well here, battling sin, seeking to please God in all the things during the day, and in the night too, when the scary dreams come...
