Laid back Sunday

Sunday, July 14, 2013

I knpw that I have done quite a bit but I feel as though I am treading under water and going slow. I have to go out in a few minutes and get a load of clothes hung out. Am still getting things made and put together before the three little boys come tomorrow evening. Gabe and I mixed a couple gallons of paint together and Wed we along with the little ones are going to go over and paint the metal building Michael constructed out of recycled metal. It will help freshen the looks up a little.
Made bbq chicken in the crock pot for dinner this evening. I put it in last evening and it is now in the fridge waiting to be nuked. It is a recipe I got off facebook.
Well as much as I could write more, I need to get moving and get the clothes out before it decides to start raining.

Here it Saturday and my honey do list is longer each day. The list is the one I make for myself!!! Gabeand I came home about four this morning from fishing by the time I fixed us French toast and we ate and got what needed to be out of the truck and got around to bed it was after six. I was back up about nine and started in on the critters. I wanted to empty the big watering bowls and cleaan them up today so I started on it this morning before it got a chance to get hot out. Cleaned the fish and they are now in the freezer. Have been really scrubbing things in the kitchen and will have to start again when I finish with the watermelon I started.
Baked strawberry muffins and banana nut muffins with the idea that I would have them for the kids vfor breakfst Tuesday morning. Well there are 4 left and for once it was not me eating them. Gabe ate them and had milk with them while they were still warm. Deciced that while I had the oven already heated to go ahead and bake some cup cakes. Got the Idea to fill up some ice cream cones with the batter and bake some of it in the cones. The rest are just plain cup cakes. Tues for snack I am going to put marshmallow cream on cakes, drizzle some chocolate syrup over it and they will have "ice cream cones" The plain cup cakes I bagged and put in the freezer for the following week. I may at that time let the kids frost their own or dream up some other way so they look different than cupcakes. I could mix up chocolate pudding and hollow out the cup cake and fill it with pudding.
Today is Jeff's birthday. He did not want anyone over or I would have had a small family party. What he decided he wanted was pizza. I went to aldi's and got one of their fresh made ones to bake, picked some other things too. I have now gotten a cantaloupe in the freezer and part of the watermelon. The chickens and rabbits love it when I do this because they get some treats. I want a gallon bag of watermelon chunks in the fridge for the kids.
Wed went I went to the ortho doctor I found out that I have a fractured bone in my foot. I know when I did it and had taken care of it myself because I knew that i was seeing him. Any way my foot has been a little sore to say the least. I am wearing an ortho shoe and since I have been on my feet so much yesterday and today it is really aching so right now I am taking a thirty minute break with it propped up. It has helped Will get my foot water bath thing out and use it tonight. I told Gabe that there is no way I will be able to go fishing tonight again. We are going to play storage wars. What we do is watch storage wars and while the unit is being opened, we make our guess as to what it will sell for. Whoever comes the closest with out going over wins that storage unit and then we wait to see if we win money or lose money on the deal. I can really act silly with the kids when we do that We started it when Dakota was here and it got to really be a riot.
Well my time is almost over and I hear a watermelon calling my name saying it wants to be finished so I had better see what I can do now.
As usual keeping busy God sees to it that I have more irons in the fired so I can never say that I am bored or depressed.
God bless each and everyone of you who has read to the end of this dissertation and He should also bless everyone who doesn't make it to the end or never makes to the first word. In other words,
God bless the spark family whether I know them or not!!!!!

Today I earned the right to go fishing and overnighter to boot. I couldnt figure out how to use the power washer so I took a paint roller and rolled the bleach and detergent combo on over half of the north side of the house. Jeff tried to get my weed sprayer going, but it has given up the ghost and sometime will have to be replaced. Any way he used most of my bleach mixture in it so I had to go in and get some bleach By the time I got back he had gotten the power washer going and showed me how to use it Fixed up a bleach mixture and with a sponge mop got the algae soaked down. Then used some of the mixture in the poser washer and sprayed it down again and started rinsing. It looks great!!!Withhin the next couple of days I will do the west side of the house. I am not going to work like a dog to get things done. It hasn't been done in years and I don't if anything but the north side has ever been done. Brianna and I did the North side about seven years ago.
Gabe and I took 3 bags and 1 crate of things to Catholic charities. All the critters have been taken care of A load of clothes was washed aand hung out and are now dry and back in. The bathroo floor was mopped and clean rugs put back in. Right now I am in the process of making covers for the rod and reels so the lines don't get all messed up when they are put in the truck. Have one done and six more to do. Gabe and I took out time to get something to eatand now I have to get back to work.
The other three boys willo be here on Monday again. We have been planning some things to do for the three days they are with me.
God bless all of you.

Rainy day

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

It has been storming. I just got finished with the watering and feeding when the storm rolled in. Don't know what it is doing out right now. I have been getting more ready for the rummage sale my daughter is going to have. I need to get more bags Right now I have piles of stuff here and there. Don't know where all of this came from, but I have accumulated a lot that I don't use or need so it is clearing out time. I look around and just shake my head as I try to wrap my brain around all this stuff and decide what to do with it. Let it go or keep it?:?????

    I heard that rule too but I think you need to keep stuff 12 months because Christmas things are only used at Christmas, right?

However, if it hasn't got a "home" and it's just lying about then it's just "stuff" and can go!

    It's hard to decide what to get rid of when you have a sale like that. I once heard a rule of - put something away (in a box or closet) for 6 months...if you don't want it back out in that time...then it is time to get rid of it. Of course I don't follow this rule....just heard about it LOL
