I think I'm ready for winter. The lawn is cleaned up, mostly. Toys are stacked. Gardens harvested. Meat birds butchered. Freezer is full. House is decorated for the fall and Halloween. Costumes while not completed are at least underway. I'm ready to tuck in and relax for a while. How about you?
While 'relax' is a relative term in my book any day where I am not outside working half the day is relaxing. My house is finally getting clean-ish. And house work catch up is really satisfying. I cleaned my fridge. Blech. I think peoples kids have been taken away for lesser crimes than how dirty my fridge was. I washed my windows and found out the sky was really blue out there. And all those happy dust bunnies under the couch have been sucked up. Slowly but surely I am reclaiming my house. We also HAD a mouse but it's gone now, no more details shall be given.
So what AM I going to do with all my free time? Well I need to brush up on my knitting skills, read the manual for my camera(it still sucks though), work on grants for the Waldorf inspired charter school and clean out the crap, er, craft closet. And cook, amazingly I will be cooking too.
I'm still homeschooling the boys which is fun, mostly. We play a lot and craft too which involves lots of cutting, gluing and tape. We need to buy stock in 3M soon. The boys have discovered the joy of hide and seek and tag and I love to watch them play with each other.
We have a flock of laying hens giving us about 10 eggs a day, plus a rooster and one freak who's sex is a mystery. It doesn't crow but it's twice the size of everybody else and has small bumps where the roosters spurs are located. Freak birds freak me out.
So turns out just about everybody uses their microwaves the same way, pop, thaw and reheat. And of course Michelle who makes soap in hers. Freak. Kidding! So as long as I have time and inclination I plan on keeping my life microwave free. Thing is I think people expect some sort of microwave conspiracy theory and I don't have one. I could have one but I don't. Oh well.
And holy shit I just saw a mouse! Apparently we had more than one. Or else another slipped in. We (kids not me!) have a tendency to leave doors wide open anytime of year and this time of year that is a big old "welcome mice" sign. Umm gotta go now...
Peace and Love,
