Summer is here and things are a lot more laid back than they normally are. Actually, given the fact that the boys are done with high school and I'm going to be homeschooling Emily, I have to figure out what my new normal is going to be starting in September!
In the meantime, I follow the same routine each day.
§ I get up around 5-5:30, depending on my internal clock.
§ I feed the rabbit and the kitten. Her eyes look weird in this photo. They are actually a beautiful gray color.
§ I grab a cup of coffee, my Bible and journal and head to the back deck to spend time with the Lord.
§ I then shower & dress and head outdoors (weather permitting). I always stop and check on the progress of the baby birds on my porch. They are getting real feathers and don't look hideously bare anymore.
§ I check the "have-a-heart" trap to see if I've caught that pesky woodchuck. Now that I have the trap there, it won't go near my garden! One morning I caught a skunk and today I caught a ferocious bunny. ;-)
§ I feed the roosters. Okay, doesn't that sound silly? It always cracks me up that I have to say roosters instead of chickens. Who else owns 5 roosters and nothing else? lol
§ I've been spending about 15-20 minutes each morning weeding my garden. It's looking so good this year!
I'm looking forward to all the vegetables!
§ Then I come back in and throw in a load of laundry, clean up the kitchen from breakfast and come up with a list for the day.
§ Generally, I try to clean 1-2 rooms per day.
§ I figure out what I want for dinner and what needs to be done for that.
§ The afternoons are spent sewing, taking kids to appointments, Emily to the pool, or finishing up housework. Two days a week I'm tutoring for an hour in the late afternoon.
§ Then it's dinner, cleanup, and usually Dan & I sit outside and chat for awhile.
§ Then I'll either crochet, watch a movie or read. Then off to bed around 9:30-10:00.
So that's it! My boring-to-everyone-else life all laid out for you! ;-) I actually love my life and love the slower days of summer.
