A day's work

  • Laundry: done. Lost count of loads, maybe ten. But it's all done and put away.
  • Bathroom: clean.
  • Sick child: better.
  • Peanut butter granola: made.
  • "Sprinkle cheese:" made. 
  • Kitchen counters: cleared and wiped.
  • Kitchen floor: swept. And mopped. Because ants.
  • Living room: picked up and vacuumed. 
  • Bed: stripped, washed, and remade.
  • Summer scheduling: begun.
  • Dinner: potato leek quiche and salad (romaine with leftover roasted vegetables).
  • Children: bathed.
  • Dishes: done, lots of them.
  • Pip: still alive (I consider this a major accomplishment when my children are toddlers).
Most days I'm not nearly this industrious, but it's the days like this that keep me going the rest of the time. It is satisfying to go to bed after a productive day's work like today's.


  1. We have ants around our kitchen sink this year. I'm not sure what to do about that. My go to plan is sprinkling Borax where they're coming in, but that won't work at the kitchen sink!

    Anyway . . . what a wonderfully full day. I hope your sleep that night was restorative. :)

  2. I love it! I totally understand about tots!
