In an effort to save money, and burn less gas, I stay at home on Mondays as often as I can. Sometimes I take the girls and walk to the International Market up the street. If I don’t get out of the house every day, I go nuts. Today, however, I have happily stayed right here. I am exhausted from the big, full weekend and I wanted a big, nappy, lazy day. I’ve missed it by mere inches.
Even though I haven’t so much as changed out of my jammies, I have not been my aspired to lazy slob today. I’ve cleaned the kitchen, cleaned out the fridge (and I even washed the gunk that collects under crisper drawers), made soup for us girls to munch today and for Tony’s lunch tomorrow, started a batch of bread and a crock pot full of apple butter, and there is a strata in the ice box waiting to be baked for tonight’s meal. I’ve had the girls helping me all along the way. It goes better when I include them in all that I do. Elly loves to be my helper with a wisk or a towel. She’s even getting better at it. Saralyn just likes to watch and eat the apple scraps! and cheese.
I’m thinking about wether to build a fire in the den fireplace. It’s chilly. I’ve moved the little space heater into the den and have pulled the curtains closed . It’s warm-ish, but not toasty. I’ll have to deliberate a bit more…
What’s your day been like?
