A Bit About My Day

Wow, 2 posts in one day. That's very rare indeed!

The days are getting cooler here. I hung out one line of laundry and it took pretty much the whole afternoon to dry. The sun was out and there was a nice breeze so for that I am very thankful.

Caleb & I took some time this afternoon to clean out his drawers. I had tackled his room before his birthday party but it looks like I neglected the drawers. Anyway that job is now complete. We have a big pile to add to the bag of clothes we are giving away. Now to tackle the master bedroom. UGH! I'm sure it won't be such a big job but it feels like it's going to be a doozy. Oh and then there is the game cupboard/homeschool closet. I hope to get this all done before we start back homeschooling in a few weeks. Then I will only have my daily chores to keep up with.

My plan is to compile a very complete portfolio. I found this list which will be a great help in making sure I include everything that I want. The biggie for me will be to not get fixated on the list and portfolio and in turn become a task master. lol ;o) I'll be sure to keep you all posted on that. :o)

Tonight for supper, we had new potatoes, an english cucumber and our first taste of corn from our garden. Yummy! We'll enjoy it at a few more meals, share some and also freeze some for winter.

How was your day?? :o)

It's still hot here, I was able to get three loads dried on the line today in the heat.

I'm doing some purging too, we have very little storage space, so we have to constantly keep clutter in check. I'm a tosser, my husband and kids are hoarders, so it's a never-ending battle.

Looking forward to reading about your homeschool portfolio.

Thanks for the link, Lisa. It will help me much, but like you, I will have to guard against the task master mentality now that I have it.
