Well, I got tired of being in bed, so after everyone left for church, I made some breakfast, listend to an excellent Palm Sunday sermon by Ligon Duncan and then started doing things around the house. 

Done:
Pork roast in the oven.
Culled and reorganized the linen closet! Two large bags for the thrift shop in my car.
Washed bath and kitchen towels.
General tidying and picking up.
Watered my Easter lily.
Made the bed.
 

Next up:
Ginger lemon tea with honey.
Catch up on some Literature so I can discuss it with Dd this coming week.

Now I’m sitting in the van in the church parking lot waiting for my hair to dry a bit more. 🤨. Dd13 had to be here early to serve in the 2-3 yo class. 

I’m enjoying the silence after listening to ds8 read Calvin & Hobbes aloud all the way to church. 🤣

cattle/sheep, as always. We lost the c-section cow, as was rather expected. The twins' mom is not producing milk, so a call into the vet for some meds. The calves are with mom, but on bottles, still colostrum at this point. I do NOT want bottle babies!

laundry--so much to do as I was gone all day yesterday. One load started, all the cold stuff. 

check on idiot Golden who wandered in front of the feed truck this morning. She's really aged this year--she be 10 this fall. 

sweep--once already done

talk to my brother--he's having some medical issues

read

write kids

walk--not hard to get in 10 miles with cow checking. My dd RAN 20 miles yesterday--she's training for a marathon in May. Sub 10:15 pace!

deal with photos from flag ceremony, Eagle project, and Catan fundraiser yesterday.

try to get my Fitbit to charge. I think it's on its last legs. 

figure out dinner--ugh

  • Woke up late.
  • Late to confirmation class kuz kid did take that shower she promised, without my reminding her.  (I probably would have let her wait until after church under the circumstances.)
  • Skipped adult Sunday School kuz I didn't want to walk in super late.  I checked the news and stuff.
  • Signed up for weather alert re the kids' 4pm race - it might storm, but not sure what time.
  • Church - kids "helped" in the nursery, so I sat alone.  I guess I'm getting used to sitting alone.
  • Signed a school paper while still at the church / school so kid can't say she forgot it again!
  • Told the kids to bin their dirty laundry and get their homework done.  Too lazy to check on them right now.  But, I do have their electronics so ....
  • Caught up on emails, news, social media.

To do:

  • Pack clothes for kids to wear to theater tonight.
  • Work.
  • Kids to race, if it isn't cancelled.
  • To theater - Phantom of the Opera.
  • Home to finish whatever homework still isn't done.
  • Lots of work kuz tax deadline is tomorrow.

Went to the store to buy Easter care package stuff for dd1. She is gearing up for the last two weeks of school and recovering from her knee arthroscopy. That went well, I think. They found some things that didn't show up on the MRI, so we are all hopeful. 

dd2 is off to bf's house. The boys are playing video games.

I am going to try to nap- but I am sure that as soon as I lay down, dh will come home.

I finished lunch (which wasn’t as simple as just warming up the pork for sandwiches) and also roasted some sweet potato slices for snacking this week.

I’m skipping the next six items on my list and going straight for the nap! 🤣

It got pretty rough in our vicinity, I think. My sister, who lives about 10-15 miles away from us, was out at 3 am surveying the damage in her neighborhood.  She said she thought the windows in the back of her house were going to blow out.  It was straight line winds, though, as far as I know. 

Did you shop at the botanical garden sale? We used to join every year because it was hands down my favorite place to take my kids when they were younger.  Now with teens we’ve somewhat outgrown it, so we no longer get a membership, but I do like to visit on occasion and also to attend the sale.

Sunday evening has become our family movie night lately.

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington was tonight's movie and we all enjoyed it. Dh and kids had never seen it before. Kids know what a fillibuster is now! 😉

Christian Book Distributors order placed.

Started working on the Thrive Mkt order but ultimately decided I don’t have the brainpower for it right now

Going to bed to read!

I’ve never seen this movie, either, though I 💖 Jimmy Stewart.

Made in 1939 by Frank Capra. Oscar winner for Best Picture, I think. JS is so young! The ending is too quick, after a two hour movie, but overall it's a super movie.

Yes, at the botanical garden sale.  i live about only about 6 miles away and I love gardens as do all of my family.  I am there probably usually at least once a month, if not more, depending on how I am feeling and who is going with me, if anyone.  I am a super garden lover--- We visit gardens just about anywhere we go too.
