Wednesday, September 3, 2008


Wednesdays are a bit of a break for me - especially since my mom watches the kids for me from 10:30-12:30! I use that time to run random errands that need to get done, but it is such a blessing that I don't have to drag the kids along with me. Today I went to the bank, the post office, the bread wholesaler and the discount grocery store.

Before she comes, the kids help me with a couple of little chores, like emptying the wastebaskets or unloading the dishwasher. We often use Wednesday mornings to tackle a little project, like cleaning the patio area or making granola bars. This morning we transferred all of the kids' winter clothes (hand-me-downs and yard sale finds) from storage boxes to their drawers. It's starting to feel like fall around here!

During the kids' naps I don't have a set agenda for Wednesdays. I always have things that need to get done - like paying bills or writing thank you notes. There are also always a few projects in the works - sewing or preschool planning or whatever. Wednesdays are nice catch-up days: if the cleaning didn't quite get finished on Tuesday, there's time to tackle it on Wednesday.

Starting to feel like fall... don't I wish. It's been 90 and humid the last few days. I like my fall clothes much better than summer, at least for teaching!

I dug out Ethan's fall stuff as well. It is fun to see what I have bought in the past months at garage sales. It is feeling fallish around here too and I'm really enjoying it.
