What a week this has been. Certainly far from typical.
Monday was my birthday, so we took off school and I went to a day spa.
Well, not quite. We had a somewhat typical school day except that during the day I made myself a coconut cake and helped my children finish preparing for their book club presentations which were on…
This month each family presented on one of the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. We chose By the Shores of Silver Lake. We chose it mainly because we had started it last February and never finished it. We actually finished the book. (That’s got to be some kind of record!) My son wrote his report on the book in general and included a little information about the Homestead Act. My daughter wrote about her favorite part of the book which was Christmas and made a display of the different types of birds mentioned in the book. We also made sourdough biscuits to share with the club. After book club we came home briefly before violin lessons. After violin, I rushed home, made a quick dinner of spaghetti then my husband took my son to basketball practice at 6:30. That was a long day.
Nothing particularly out of the ordinary happened during the day. We did finally finish a game of Life on the Farm (review coming soon.)
After dinner my husband and I began moving all this furniture
away from the walls in our living room so that on…
I could start painting.
At this point I was feeling a bit concerned about my color choice.
What a long day! I managed to get 2 coats of paint done and fell into bed exhausted.
I painted the trim in the living room and began to try to catch up on laundry. It feels great to be finished. Of course I still have to move all the furniture back!
