The Day Off

This is from just did not post.

Not really! I was off from markets and work, but there was plenty to do today. hubby was home as well and we made the most of it. I cooked breakfast and we got the boys ready for school. I did a couple loads of laundry and unloaded as well as reloaded the dw. Then off they went, to school.

Hubby and I returned to clean out and detail the insides both vehicles. He took some things to the storage building and I cleaned off the front porch, swept it and scrubbed it down. While he washed and detailed the outsides of both vehicles, I proceeded to do another 3 loads of laundry, wash 1and 1/2 bushels of pink eye purple hull peas and can 27 jars of them, chop veggies and make 19 bags of freezer salsa and start washing cukes for bread and butter pickles. I also put 5 # of boneless/skinless chicken breasts in the crock pot to cook.

We had a quick lunch around 1pm. Hubby weedeated around EVERYTHING while I canned the pickles (13 jars) and did another 2 loads of laundry. I then made some phone calls and printed some things off the laptop while hubby took boxes and baskets back to the packing house.

We then took several things over to the freezer to store for those long winter days. When we returned we hung some new "pretties" in the kitchen/dining room and then I stripped beds and finished the laundry. I got supper started and we headed off to pick up the boys and to the post office.

If you counted that WAS EIGHT loads of laundry!

After playing with the boys outside and eating supper, bathes were in order. After bathes we watched a movie and had popcorn and fresh apples from the orchard dipped in hot caramel. Yummy! Bedtime was at eight for everyone except me, where was I.......trying to get this machine to publish this post! LOL!

Hope you had a great day!

You are a busy woman! I sometimes wonder how I can wash 6 or 7 loads of laundry and turn around the next morning with 4 more in the laundry room, go figure. Have a great weekend!!!

Great job on the canning!
Laundry just never ends, does it?
When are you opening your online store?
