Did you know that the human body has approximately 650 muscles? I think I used EVERY ONE of them today. Most certainly, I’ll feel it in the morning, too. (Along with the open blister on my hand.)
It was a good day — very productive, but very chaotic too.
We started off this morning with “Monster Mommy” declaring that it was WORK DAY! “Woo hoo! Hurray!!”, said all four children. (Well, not really.)
We hauled dirt all day, hoed the garden, added landscape timber edging around it, built a firepit, leveled out the dirt entrance to an outside shed in preparation for cement block covering, picked up trash, organized a shed, washed the dog, and trimmed some limbs.
Inside, the eldest worked on the house, mopping, scrubbing, providing drinks to the outside workers, and sweeping out the dirt that was continually tracked in by the boys all day.
To celebrate, we spent Family Night outdoors, burning every piece of branch we could find as well as roasting hot dogs and making s’mores. Yum!
Highlights of the night….Watching June bugs making their suicidal flight INTO the fire as they burst into flames, stargazing, and the explosion of a soda can that was thrown into the fire.
It took all but about 2 seconds for the youngest to fall asleep, and I’m fading fast, but so appreciate the hard work of everyone at my house today.
We’re going to try for another outside work day tomorrow to plant the garden, lay the concrete blocks to the entrance of the shed, and maybe even clean out another shed while we’re at it! —Maybe, lol!
So much to do…..so little time to do it!
