This morning I woke up at 8:30. After staying up too late on Friday night reading, it was a little too early for me. Thankfully Dave was home so I had a leisurely time from 8:30 until 10:30. I ate breakfast, checked computer stuff (blogs, e-mail, Instagram, Facebook), picked out Sam and Rachel's clothes for the day, and did some basic tidying up. Dave supervised breakfast for the kids and then Sam and Rachel played duets on the piano and "talked on the phone", had tea and set up a farm in the playroom while I figured out what errands to do while we were out.
I just love Sam's imagination in setting up his farm here.
From 10:30 until about noon we were at the synagogue so the kids could attend Tot Shabbat (similar to Sunday School). They learned about the story of Noah's Ark and made rainbows. Then we did some grocery shopping.
From 1:15 until 2, I put groceries away, returned some phone calls, and helped Dave make grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. I took the first of many food pictures of the day. I really love how the pile of cheese looks for some reason!
From 2:00 until 3:30 we processed food, mostly using up CSA vegetables. First Sam and I made zucchinni muffins for Sunday School snack. Then Sam helped me make cabbage rolls for tonight's supper and Dave made an amazing coleslaw with some orange and red beets, purple cabbage, kohlrabi, carrots, onions, and celery. He was a chopping and grating machine. I was grateful, because I hate doing stuff like that.
I know, I know, with pictures like this I am destined to become the next great food photographer! Ha!
From 3:30-5:30, I worked on treasurer stuff for the preschool. I actually got a lot done so that felt really good.
My treasurer desk after I went through all the piles waiting for me!
There were A LOT of dishes because this isn't even all of them.
Then I uploaded, and edited, pictures for this post. And now Donny and Marika are here and I am going to visit with them.
