Thanks for the comments ladies (and hubby ;o) )! I decided to go ahead and tackle some of the immediate homeschool organization issues. We moved one bookcase into the dining room and I can keep all of our current stuff and my books there! It was the cheapest and quickest way to fix it, and I really like how it separates the dining room off from the kitchen a little bit. For those that don’t know, our house is small. No more than 1090 sq.ft. so every space counts, lol!
This led to also changing the living room set up and restructuring, but thankfully my boys still have their bookshelf in the living room and a nice little reading space behind the couch.
I suppose I’ll get to the boys closet someday…but not today, because today is KITCHEN DAY!! I’m so excited to have a day set aside for cooking and preparing food! I know, I know, check back with me in about a month or two and it might be different. But TODAY I’m giddy! Here are the projects that have been going on…
Homemade Dinner Rolls! This will make a nice addition to tonight’s roast and they tasted wonderful when they came out! Forgive the awful photo folks, I’m not a photographer. That would be my husband.
The recipe I used was this one, http://simpledailyrecipes.com/244/homemade-dinner-rolls/ except I used half white and half wheat bread.
And currently sitting on my stove rising are 2 honey wheat loaves of bread….
The recipe for these was from here, http://allrecipes.com/recipe/simple-whole-wheat-bread/detail.aspx
And in my crock pot, homemade cinnamon applesauce!…
Do you know what my house smells like right now? Like heaven…wrapped in bread and apples and cinnamon. Feel free to come by and take a whiff, but I’m not sharing the food.
Other things that got accomplished…lots of dishes, and I separated my roast into 2 containers so I can use it for 2 different meals.
Some things I’ve learned today:
1. I need to start buying bulk flour. I know there are some different sites out there, so where do you get yours?
2. I need a bread maker. I’m not sure I could be Ma Ingalls every week making it by hand. I’ve done it once before and remember thinking the same thing.
3. I make a mess when I bake.
4. I desperately need to clear out my fridge and freezer to make room for my homemade stuff. I might (read if the children let me) tackle that this afternoon…
All in all, its been a great day, plus the temp dropped and it actually feels like fall! And I still was able to get in some school time this morning, play obstacle course outside for a few minutes with the boys, and rock my baby to sleep on the back patio ❤ *sigh*
