Today was one of those great, yet insanely busy days. My day off....
We started the morning at 4:15am, making coffee and sending the husband off with his packed breakfast and lunch, ready for the work day. Next up was the consumption of extreme quantities of coffee, followed by a work project.
As 5:30am rolled in, along with the fog, it was outside to let the chickens out, drag the trash and recycling curbside, and some early morning gardening. This was closely followed by waking kids, more breakfast to make, and a bit more gardening (gotta sneak it in where we can...)
By 8am, we were on the road to our first appointment, and were made late by the crossing of a large herd of dairy cows. Once our early morning visit was complete, it was back home to get ready for the first playdate of the day. In this brief intermission, I was able to find time to weedwack some tall grass and to care for the guinea pigs and cats.
Then it was off to the pool party and lunch playdate with some new friends. A completely lovely time, complete with some grown person chatting (a rare event).
After lunch it was back home, where more gardening was done, and we readied for the next event. This was a mixed bag of a playdate drop off, followed by some volunteer work at a local farm. Once the farm chores were complete, it was back to pick up the daughter from her event.
We lucked out at the pick up, as I was able to indulge in more grown up chatting (!!) with a new friend, and was even welcomed to peek in and see their chickens and their awesome handmade chicken coop and yard. Jealousy, thy name is Lee Ann...
The day was rounded out with a meet & greet for the kindergarten class at the school playground. And then we were home.
At that is where we are now, perched on my bed, as my son builds bubble castles in the tub to my right, and my daughter is eating a late dinner downstairs.
It was a good day.
A great day.
And I need a nap.....
