Busy, Busy

Wow! What a day! Here was my schedule for the day. Dentist appointments at 7:00. Drop Maile off at preschool. Errands. Pick up Maile. Assemble 50 snack bags for the kids' mailbox. Babysitting until noon followed by voice lessons. Start laundry. Go to Idaho Falls for groceries. Stall on my cleaning by playing with kittens. Madly deep clean in preparation for Mother-in-law coming. City meeting about farmer's market--skipped dinner and went out for ice cream with Arden. Came home. Finished cleaning. Welcomed mother-in-law and friend. Caught up on e-mails and facebook, wrote in blog, and soon, off to bed. My favorite time of day. I think my grammar is a little weird in this blog.

Arden's funny quote: (Our neighbors recently aerated.) "Mom, we can't go into their yard, it's a poop yard!"

Of Wheat and Plants

Whew! Most of our 200+ trees and shrubs are in, thanks to Ben and Kayla's amazing help! I am just waiting on a few things I ordered in the mail, and our last two fruit trees that are sitting at the nursery. Then, it's bark on top of everything, and our winding flagstone path, and we are done for this year! Yeah! What a job!

Enrichment went well last week. I enjoyed teaching how to use one's wheat storage.

Maile started toddler lab at the college. She really enjoys it.

Not much time to blog nowadays.

Wish the wind would stop.

Of A Messy House

Why is it that on the rare day that I decide to put off my morning house cleanup that's when company always drops by unexpectedly?
