What My Day Looks Like
I thought I would share what a day in my life looks like.
Today is unusual because my van is getting the a/c charged at our favorite garage and so I needed to drive my husband in to work, and we dropped the van off on the way.
When I got up this morning, I made my bed - today is a sheets and comforter folded back kind of day - I am airing the bedding. The pillows are all standing up nice and perky. I have a three pillows at each place on our bed, and today I have two with red pillowcases, two white with lace trim, and two with pillowshams that match my comforter. The feather pillow that Tim sleeps on is in front of all of these and is in a homespun red check pillowcase I made. I also have a red floral pillow and a white battenburg lace pillow in front of all the pillows. It sounds like a lot but it only takes a minute or less to put on and take off the bed, and they make me happy!
Here is an older photo of the bed but this is very similar to how I have it these days.
When I got home from taking Tim to work, I went out to my front garden, and cut two of my hydrangea and an armful of feverfew.
They are so beautiful! I have the hydrangea on the piano and the feverfew by the sink. Since I spend quite a bit of my day in the kitchen at the sink, I want to have pretty things to look at!
In a few minutes I will leave to take Rachel and Emily into the store and then at noon I will drop Lindsay at her job at the theatre.
In between these trips out I am
- working on stuff for the online store - still working out bugs and things....
- directing kids in their chores
- cleaning the bathrooms
- mopping floors
I also am getting the urge to rearrange a room - so it might be my room or the living room, and that may not happen today!
I don't have to cook dinner tonight because Kay has it all planned - chicken has been marinating overnight.
Later I will go and pick Tim and the girls up from work and we will spend time together having dinner, doing dishes, talking...maybe we will watch a movie.
So what are you doing today?
