Fun in the Sun

Anyone's life truly lived consists of work, sunshine, exercise, soap, plenty of fresh air, and a happy contented spirit. -
Lillie Langtry

Since we knew it was going to be an icky day today (rainy... blech), DD made the most of yesterday and will do her school today (one of the bennies of homeschooling!!).

Here's how she spent her day. Drawing chalk pictures of Dakota:

And riding her scooter up and down the road with the dog (usually shouting 'WAHOOOOOOO' at the top of her lungs):

I worked on the computer, cut down my dead hydrangeas and garden phlox and then, since DH was up helping his uncle do something at his uncle's property up north, and I knew it was going to rain today, I split wood.

Yes I did.

I have to admit that it's more than frustrating to have to take 10 - 15 whacks at a log with the maul before the stupid thing splits, when DH does it in 2 - 3, but even so, I did make a pile of chopped, split stuff.

I told DH what I'd done when he got home, and that I knew I'd only done ten logs or so -- but he said, "That's ten logs I don't have to do." Of course, then he went out and finished up the pile, whack, whack, whack.

Sunday, we'll be hitting the neighbor's wood pile. I'd like to say that today is a day of rest, but DD will be doing school and I will be building next week's LASR/WC website pages.

And, I might back some garlic herb bread, because it sounds good -- and baking is always a good choice on a rainy fall day.

What are your plans?


You Are North

Like a Viking, you are assertive, decisive, and dominant. You seek power and destroy those in your way.

People admire that you are so confident and independent. You seem to have the world figured out.

Sometimes you come across as pushy and aggressive... not that you mind! You like being seen as tough.

You make a fairly good leader, especially in times that require grit and ruthlessness. You are a warrior.

Next stop... world domination. MUHAHAHAHAHAHA....

Have a good weekend!

I'll be writing, watching soccer (please no rain!) and working on some craft prep. Same old same!

We're having a family reunion today, though I'm not going to it. But my cousins plan to come over afterwards to see me.

My plans? Worked for 5 hours and now I'm feeling flu-ish. Yet everyone is asking me what's for lunch. Sheesh

We're going to see if we can find a Fluer de Lis necklace for Daughter's confirmation gift. Then I get to come home and clean, yay. *G* I'm also going to bake the cookies I made the dough for yesterday.
Good for you on splitting the logs! WTG!
I love the flexibility of homeschooling.

I am South: Like an islander, you are friendly, easy-going and welcoming. You are always looking for good times and new friends.
People admire that you are so caring and hospitable. The world would be a much better place if more folks were like you.
Sometimes you come across as a little too complacent. You tend to avoid conflict at any cost, even if it makes you uncomfortable in the process.
You make an ideal diplomat. You know how to put people at ease and how to promote peace.

Um, huh, sounds pretty good.

I hope you have a great day!

LOL too cute! Love seeing a kid and her dog :)

Good job on the wood stuff.

Did a whole lot of nothing this weekend other than taking care of extra babies. All the pets (4 dogs, 2 cats) at my place got lots of naps in LOL.
