Domestic Day

I’m taking a little break from domestic duties doing – What else? – a little of this and that on the Internet. First I check my email, then check if my friends on Facebook (you know who YOU are) have made their moves in Scrabulous. Then I open my blog and see what the reader traffic has been like. Thank you so much, my loyal readers! I appreciate you checking in on my little, domestic corner of the universe! So here you have a wee blog post.

Speaking of domestic, that is totally what my day has been. Tomorrow we eat breakfast together at church prior to the worship service. I have desired to make homemade cinnamon rolls for the friends for a while now, so I finally did it. I’m just about done baking all the batches now, and will frost them tomorrow morning. My recipe makes approximately 100 sweet rolls (Ninety-six to be precise, my dear Watson.)

I still need to bake some bread, since we’re totally out. That is a DISASTER around here! Nothing is quite the same as homemade bread, toasted and buttered, for breakfast. Hmm. Guess that will have to come after baking some chicken for dinner, since it’s getting to be THAT time.

Before I do any more baking however, I’m taking old doggie for a walk. That will give me an extra burst of energy that the cup of coffee I just drank didn’t seem to give me.

Throughout the day I’ve been doing load after load of laundry. The girls will do all the folding in a little bit. Two of the girls still need to clean their assigned bathrooms. Rick vacuumed the house this morning prior to some clients arriving at 9a.m., and also used the Swiffer Wet Jet in necessary places. (The dog comes in the house muddy; what can I say?)

Maybe this evening the children and I can play a few games. I’m about out of oomph. It will be nice to relax.

    This is the first time we’re having breakfast together since we joined the Bellingham United Reformed Church. Usually we have an occasional noon meal together, and sometimes a Wednesday evening meal together. Very nice!

    Thank you for your comment, too, Storyteller. Yes, there is a time and a season for everything in this life. When the children were little and Rick was doing demanding physical work, I did LOTS more cooking and baking. Now, if I’m too busy, my family cheerfully fends for themselves.

    Hugs and blessings to you, too. 🙂
