An exhausting day on the homestead....

There are some days at home that make a day at the office look like a total breeze.

Yesterday was my last Thursday at home for the summer.  Next week, the school session begins again and the kids are off and running.  And I am back in the office full time.

So, being the last day, I wanted to cram as much into the day as I possibly could.  And I did.  And I am exhausted.

It was such a rhythm of getting up and getting down....Up to put a load of laundry in the wash, down to fold the laundry, up to slice, dice, and can veggies, down to crochet another row on the shawl.

But, in the end, I had had canned 4 fours of sweet pickles and 12 jars of green tomato salsa, froze many types of veggies, made and froze a large batch of peach apple chutney, and cleaned most of the house, and added a few more inches to the shawl. 

A great day, an exhausting day, and a day well deserving of sleep.

And, get this...I slept in to 6am this morning!  Remarkable!  (however, if you had asked me 8 years ago if 6 am qualified as "sleeping in", I would have thought you to be absolutely and completely nuts!)
