A Perfect Day
Today was a very good day to be on the prairie. I had fresh spinach from my own garden with my breakfast. I was able to get quite a bit of cleaning done in the house (and it stayed clean). I made buns from scratch to go with barbequed brisket for lunch. My kids took at nap at the same time, which allowed me to nap as well. My mother-in-law worked her tail off in the garden, weeding and tilling and planting new things (celery!) and now it looks so much nicer. I learned how to use the weed-eater (sort of) and cut lots of weeds. In the afternoon I was able to mow the lawn in front of the hired man's house, a chore I really enjoy (it helps that we have a riding lawnmower I think). My kids played with their cousin outdoors, and for the most part they were content. The weather was gorgeous- sunny, not too hot, and hardly any mosquitos. Pretty much a perfect day on the prairie.
