Today's unexpecteds. (They were supposed to arrive NEXT week).
This boy made a big breakfast for the family this morning, without being asked. This afternoon he folded and put away two loads of laundry, without being asked. Early evening he cleared two pallets of wood by putting the wood in the woodshed. Then tonight he filled the dishwasher and hand washed what needed to be washed, without being asked. He stays on top of his expected chores without ever needing reminders and helps out as he sees a need regularly. I'm just so proud of who he is becoming!
These ones keep us on our toes!
Catching up on my thrifted posts, I'm a big behind!
Lampshades. A pack of wooden rulers. A cooking stone bread warmer, a cast iron candle. $8.25
Books, including a hardcovered Little Town (trying to shift those to hardcover), Merrells for Adrian, Lighthouses of Maine game. $7.
We have been long time fans of Chris Van Dusen (author & illustrator). I found out he was giving an art class not too far from us. There were only 20 slots, we were lucky enough to get three. It was only $20 total for my three kids to attend, I would have paid oodles more. It was so good!
Definitely a day to remember!
Pleased to report my week ended better than it started! The barn project phase 1 is done for now, phase 2 next week. I'm currently working on massive peony planting (yay!) parallel to our walkway. Someday I hope for it to be a stately entrance.
This week has been ALLLLL unexpected. Aiming to cram the calm in between the chaos. The chaos is mostly the noise in my mind. So, I picked flowers and made bread.
