They went back to school this morning! Very reluctantly...but they went. It didn't help that was pouring down rain either. It is amazing how much more I get done in the mornings when we have a schedule to stick to. I have gotten a lot done already! Supper is in the crock pot and starting smell good already. Mom sent home the left over ham after Christmas and the broth after she cooked the bone. Homemade broths and stocks are always better than store bought. I threw in the ham and some broth, a can of tomatoes (store bought because the canned ones from the garden are already getting low), a can of green beans, a couple of potatoes, a sliced carrot, and a good sprinkle of garlic powder. I usually put corn in my ham soup but I guess when I used the last can I didn't add it to my grocery list. I got it all together and thought it did look weird without the corn so I did something I have never done before. Yes....I picked corn out of the frozen vegetables! Bryson always ate mixed veggies well but lately hasn't so I was prepared to throw them away last time, but thought maybe I could find something to do with them. I am glad I kept them! Although it would be better if there were more, but it was better than nothing.
Bryson is getting a lot of work done also. He has been vacuuming this whole time. Then I heard a strange noise like when a real vacuum sucks up a bunch of crumbs. i just went to see what he was doing and he had gotten pretzels out of the cabinet and dumped them in the floor so he could vacuum those. Then as I was looking at this mess he starts hollering, "I'm stuck! I'm stuck!" I looked over and he had crawled under his basketball goal that is shorter than him and stood up. He had the rim around his neck and I had flash backs of Blaine having to go to the hospital to get the seat belt cut off his finger. Thankfully the rim is covered with foam so I removed it quickly and all is well.
I have one more strip on my quilt until I will have to go to the fabric store to buy more muslin. I plan on finishing the last one hopefully tonight and I can pack up all my stuff and have my kitchen back for a few days for Brayden's birthday party that we had to postpone thanks to the stomach bug. Of course, Saturday will probably end up being the coldest day of the winter so far, and I will have all these kids stuck in my house without being able to outside. i guess we will manage.
On to deliver the little one to Paw Paw's house. He is crying for him already this morning. Grandma is chopped liver in his book until it is lunch time! Then on to a rainy, gloomy kind of Monday, but Tuesday, day of work!
