Ds12 helped me make the pie, and we went a little crazy and spread some caramel on the bottom crust before adding the apples. It turned out great! The other things we brought were a bowl of apples and oranges and BBQ chips. Someone brought a quinoa salad that was quite tasty.

How was the mystery dinner, Jean?

A Booyah of Great Mystery! And Caramel!

I decided that today would be the day to switch out summer clothes for winter ones.

 

Each week I have a different child in charge of the kids' laundry.  This week was dd13's turn.  

 

Dd13 did 9 loads of laundry today!  WILLINGLY!!

 

After about the sixth load I told her that the rest could wait until next week and someone else would finish it.  She said that she wanted to finish it herself.

The murder mystery party was a lot of fun. My team won !! My outfit fit in with everyone else too. At the last minute my son convinced me to add a hat.

I finished The Ukrainian and Russian Notebooks (or something along those lines) by Igort. Depressing read, btw. I returned it to the library. I went to the store. I made 'dinner'... cinnamon rolls with buttercream icing, and cinnamon rolls with cream cheese icing. In my defense, I at least fed everyone *something*, and at a reasonable hour at that. DW spent 4 hours playing Pandemic with the kids while I did that, and while I put away dishes afterward, and did dishes, and put away dishes, and cleaned up a little.

 

And now I've been researching the TPMS light on the car and whether it's going to be an issue for inspection, etc (it's not the low tire pressure light... it's a different light). It looks like it should not be an issue for inspection in NY (but, allegedly would be an issue, in say, CT), but since we're planning on putting on 2 more new tires and rotate the remaining two, it probably would make sense to replace the sensors while they're doing that, since it should be trivial, labor-wise, if you're replacing the tires anyway (apparently the batteries of the TPMS thing die after 8 or so years according to the internet, and they're not replaceable... have to replace the entire sensors). That would likely take care of the light (it's a 2009 model, so, odds are it is the batteries of the TPMS sensors). The internet seems to suggest that a set of 4 sensors (one for each tire) is about $160? So, with 2 more new tires, and rotation, I'm guessing $350-$400?

Oh, and I spent some time reading The House Husband, which is less depressing. For one, it's fiction. For two(?), many fewer people die. 

 

ETA: I haven't finished it yet though, but it's a detective novel or w/e... not comparable to pre-WWII Soviet Union reality.

Good morning!

Busy day today. Ds12 is playing cello for church services for the first time - we'll see how it goes. I'll be right next to him with the violin so can keep any eye on him. :D Right after the second service we have to drive to The Big City for a cello lesson. Then he has been invited (with the girls) to play at a friend's house for a little while.

Must find Pantz and have some breakfast and

COFFEE!

No string instruments in choich. It's unbiblical. Back when Brazilian missionary friend was a minor she played a guitar for a special or whatever you call it when someone sings alone. We had a couple walk out and never return. They had been church members for like 30 years. They go to the legalist church now.
