What is going on at our house today...

What we are doing:

Lena: taking wooden letter blocks out of a basket and lining them up on the couch
talking and singing
spinning and singing
"helping" Mommy by taking clean clothes out of her drawers and putting them in a basket

coloring
storytime (library books) with mama
stacking pegs and singing
playing with foam letters

making dinner
changing towels and bed linens
putting clothes away
praying for Daddy to have a good day and to come home safely in the rain
dusting
folding clothes
starting a recipe notebook (Mothers' Day Gift)
taking a nice comfy nap with an ice pack on that pesky SI joint
missing Daddy
taking the clean clothes out of the luandry basket and putting them back in Lena's drawers
guiding Lena to help with placing all the books back on the bookshelf
giving Lena a bath
paying bills
cutting coupons and planning a grocery shopping excursion for tomorrow
mopping floor
stealing some moments to read

Daddy: in his office doing what land surveyor's do ( a lot, I assure you)
feeling tired and most likely, hungry
looking forward to seeing his favorite women (just a guess here!)

What we are listening to:

(but I think I'm entitled to at least a half hour of Il Divo at some point in the day!)
Classical Guitar for Lena's nite nite music
what's going on at your house???

Oh. I missed this yesterday. Your day sounded nice though you failed to mention a nice hunk of your day on the phone with your mama.

Today as I type we're winding down, but SOME of the things we did:

Mom:
did Neesie's assignment sheet for two days.
graded quizzes and a test
made cottage cheese pancakes(breakfast)
made chili for dinner
made corn muffins
cleaned bathrooms
did some laundry
swept front porch
took a walk
made a blog post that seemed to take forever because I would type a little and then go do something else and forget about it.
talked on the phone to two old friends who called
reading: Holiness by J.C. Ryle and the One Year Christian History book
Writing: Did none again. Got to get to it!

Dad:
Cut the grass
Spent a large amount of time still tinkering with an old lawn motor. Glad because it's keeping him occupied.

Neesie: sent hers separately

All together: Just had family devotions. Thank the Lord.

Goodness, I believe you got a big burst of energy. Your little Lena is such a happy, sweet, busy little girl. I've been missing my computer for a few days. My son-in-law brought over another monitor tonight. At least I can get on here now. :)
