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!!!!!
