The job title 'Domestic Goddess', while funny, is completely misleading. As I waved the 'crew' off to their respective schools and work this morning-I was petting the dog. I looked down at her and once again(as I have for the past few weeks) took note of the fact that the poor creature was in desperate need of a hair trim/grooming. So, putting housework aside, I grabbed the appropriate equipment and set to work.
So Rosie is trimmed and brushed-and then bathed thanks to Weston. But as I sat there grooming her, I thought about what I did with my day yesterday. We ran out of jam in our food storage so I pulled frozen peaches I prepared last year from the freezer-invited a friend over and by the afternoon had 25 pints of peach jam. I was also successful in sharing a love for homemade peach jam with a great friend. Of course, it was introduced to her on homemade bread from one of the 6 loaves I made at 5 yesterday morning.
No photos for the bread-if you've read past blogs it would be redundant. ;) In the past few months we have gotten some things accomplished. On top of helping out with the HS play, we have pulled out carpet, painted some walls and trim, and begun reflooring the living room. I think we finally have the girls room set up so they can easily keep it clean. It's been so nice walking in there the past few weeks to see what a great job they are doing keeping things tidy. I may have my great organizational skills back by the time Kaylyn leaves home.... I was totally organized before we had child number 4..... :) Off to pick up prescriptions and other errands....
.................I do so like looking at the pretty jars of jam!.............. :)
