The grand-babies have been fed, clothed in pajamas and are now asleep. Sound asleep?
But having them come to visit for the night was a nice ending to the day.
And what a day it's been. Foggy and cool all morning. Sometimes the fog only rises above the creek. This morning, it was pressing against the windows-and our windows are a good distance from the creek. Took until 10 or 10:30 for the sun to burn it off.
That was plenty of time to enjoy some coffee and make french toast in a leisurely fashion.
The rest of the day was clear, bright and sunny. It actually felt like fall today-a little on the cool side.
A good day for a walk across the field and along the creek bank.
A good day to clean out a shed and prepare it for painting.
I swept and swept and swept, but the dust, rabbit hair and dried chicken manure seemed to be just getting stirred around- and up my nose.
So, I gave the old shop vac a shot. It worked way better than a broom, and our shed is about ready to paint now.
After a shower to remove the dust from myself, I fried up a nice mess of Vietnamese cat fish and some homegrown potatoes. Oaklee loved them both.
The kiddos watched cartoons for a bit, and I read them a couple of books. They've just gone to sleep, so I'm a bloggin'.
It's been a good day at home. I love days like this when I don't have to go anywhere, and I can get dirty as a pig if I want to.
That's another reason I seldom throw clothes away. Old rags are just the thing for farm chores.
