It was a race against the rain, but I had a pretty successful day. I did have to bring in the laundry, because the rain arrived a noon and my laundry was not dry.
I got the watermelon mounds weeded, and a tiny bit of the strawberries. The peas are finally on the fence, but not ready to pick just yet. Maybe tomorrow.
My daisies are blooming, along with my daylillies now.
I picked a handful of strawberries and one kiddo made a yogurt smoothie with them. While out checking the wild black raspberries, I was excited to pick some ripe mulberries that the birds had not eaten.
I hurried them inside and into a freezer bag. I'll just have to keep adding them (and hope to get enough) until I can make a batch of jam. I have never been able to make mulberry jam.
I weed wacked until the battery died, leaving a lot left to do yet.
I got my bathroom, for the most part, cleaned. I left myself sticky notes on the mirror for reminders for the remainder of the work.
The younger girls tackled the dishes (if you can call it doing dishes), while my oldest (oldest still at home) daughter completely cleaned out and organized a large kitchen drawer. I vacuumed, swept, and put up more sticky note reminders.
Finished my 3 mile walk and finally showered. Phew!
At 4pm, I put the laundry back out (I know, a lot of work, but I did get more exercise), including some towels. Made dinner and relaxed with some crocheting. That about sums up my day.
How was your day?
