An Excuse

Yesterday while Daddy entertained the young'uns:
I got to spend the whole day doing this (after church of course):
Now I know Sunday's are to be a day of rest - but oddly enough I find digging restful. Looking for worms, pulling up weeds, enjoying the smell of the soil - ahhh wonderful! My garden ended up ready to put in all the new plants I was able to get at Flower World (isn't that name just heaven for a gardener?!). I can't wait to plant!

Today in spite of amazingly sore muscles (better get back to the exercise DVDs!!) I was energized by my day of "rest" and I got a lot done:

Fed kids (they must be growing - they keep wanting to eat :0):

Made yogurt:
Weeded the veggie garden (I'm not going to let those weeds get the upper-hand this year - I hope):

Washed and hung several loads of laundry:

And for Mom - yes I wore sunblock and a hat (even though the hat was hard to keep on while hanging clothes):


And while I did do all those things the real reason for this post was an excuse to play with my new camera (do I really need an excuse?)

Now that's productivity. Isn't is amazing what we can accomplish when babies are being cared for? Even for only a couple of hours. And may I ask that you share how you did your yogurt? I've made it many times but I've never seen it done like this before.

Love the hat, i have several new straw hats this summer courtesy of Rosemary, and always wear them outside. In spite of being 1/8 indian, i freckle and burn. The only thing that shows in me is my irish great-granny, with my auburn hair, hazel eyes, and very fair skin. I am what is known around here as a white as rice indian. Happy gardening!!!

Thanks, I'll look into that post. I do gallons of kefir here. Literally we can go through a gallon a day. In smoothies mostly. And it is so very easy to make. Just mix the milk with the starter and leave sit for a day or two. But I need to get yogurt made in bigger batches like you've shown.

What a fun day you had! I'm glad your camera situation is all fixed. I love seeing what you and your beautiful family are up to :-)
