To do lists

Im not sure why some days full of housework & homemaking seem like a real chore, but others, like today, seem to just flow. They make you appreciate the fact that you are blessed enough to be able to spend time at home with your children, to bake, to craft, to play, and to have a safe and secure home filled with family that you love dearly.

Anyway, we are having a busy and productive day today. My to do list was as long as my arm, but we are slowly working our way through most of the items on the list.

Washing x 3 loads - done

Folding - Mt foldmore is still growing..havn't got to this yet!!!!!!

Tidy kitchen and do dishes - Ive been really slack and not getting this done at night lately - must get back into the routine of doing it straight after tea. - was done until we baked...round 2 still to go!

Baking biscuits - done - double batch of choc chip & coconut

Bake an apple cake - done...although it turned into orange and apricot cake once I realised there were no lemons, and the kids ate the last two apples while I was getting everything organised!

Do something special with Isaac while Jazz has her nap - done

We made soap jumpers - doesnt that sound cute, its what Isaac called it when I explained what we were going to do. Its actually just wet felting some wool over a bar of soap. He loved it.
We took some carded wool (I got a big bag of this, in lots of colours at the markets the other week) and I cut a bar of my goats milk soap in half so we could make one each.

Isaac picked some colours and wrapped his bar of soap.

He loved the whole felting process of course. Who wouldnt enjoy getting to play with soap and water.

After a while we had two soap jumpers made and ready to be dried off and tested out in tonights bath!

Sitting here blogging isnt going to get any more things marked off my list!
Hope you are all having a happy and productive day as well!

You must have taken all my productivity. I did a super intense workout this morning and was zonked - all that got done was to vac and mop the floors and walk the dog...not the day I planned. Tomorrow will be sooo busy to catch up! Good for you for being such a fabulous domestic goddess xxx

If only we could have that flow everyday, we'd be Supermums!
Good on you for getting so much done, I'd like that pile of baking at my house (but you can keep Mt Foldmore thank you very much!)
