We had very specific goals this morning and it was a good way to start the morning. I got the laundry started early while Pete tackled office work. The kids and I worked with the housework till morning tea. After that, they piled in the car with Pete and headed into town for a rubbish run, lunch in town and to buy a few things to fix their bikes with. I had a couple of hours to myself – I finished off the housework and did a little bit of reading – two hours don’t last that long!
Pete planned on fixing bikes, collecting palm fronds and spraying weeds around the veggie patch with the kids in the afternoon so I took the opportunity to be in the office with no interruptions. Yay!!
I then cooked dinner. Now this sounds like an everyday occurrence but….thinking about dinner has happened at 5.00pm around here lately. I am trying to develop a new habit of thinking of dinner after lunch and by 3.00pm at the latest. So a big tick for me for today!!
Jess had a piano lesson and while Josh mowed the lawn I thought I would wander down to the veggie patch and do some weeding. But Pete had beat me to it with the spray wand – so it wasn’t worth doing by hand till they all die. Pete and I planted out some seeds instead. We have a huge garden this year; we can’t fill it even when we try. It will be good to have a few empty patches so we can plant a second round in a few weeks’ time.
We sat at the dinner table this evening, quite content with our efforts for today. We are tired but all is well!
