a day in my life

This morning we awakened to what the weather page called a "freezing fog".

After taking a few minutes to read and begin my coffee, I went upstairs to collect Pumpkin so he could have waffles with Daddy. Always a treat. After settling them, I heard Dumpling so I collected him up and he and I enjoyed our waffles.

Every other week I make a huge batch of whole wheat waffles and freeze them. He just takes out a waffle and pops it in the toaster. This allows Sweetheart a quick breakfast that he enjoys. He really likes waffles. I'd happily make him anything he'd like for breakfast any day, but waffles are what he wants.

After sending Sweetheart on his way, I did a few chores.Using pretty things, like this bowl, make unpleasant tasks go smoother.Pumpkin concentrates hard while he plays.I love Dumpling's little fingers, don't you?The morning work done, I relaxed for a few moments while the boys played.

Taking a few minutes to pray the Midday Office before taking off to meet Angie for lunch. After a few hours at Chick-fil-a, we returned for naps and reading. I enjoyed a few chapters of Mansfield Park. It was a nice, quiet afternoon of rest after so many busy days this week.Changing a lot of these fill the day...

Not sure what happened in this picture, but the swirl effect is kinda cool.

After naps, it's snack time.

Then we're off to play more! It's a tough job, but someone must do it!

Time to make dinner! We're having squash from the garden (again) and some bread I made and froze, and London Broil with teriyaki sauce. After cutting the squash, I scooped out the seeds, rinsed them and will dry them for planting this spring. It'll be the third year of squash from just one store-bought squash a few years ago. Amazing.

After dinner, we'll all visit and play together and then it's time for the boys to go to bed. Then Sweetheart and I will have some time together to catch up and relax. All in all, a lovely day!

Stop by Little Jenny Wren and see what others have done today!
