A Homemaker’s Day: May 5, 2021

The day seemed to dawn early this morning. After a long night with a little one, I would have been quite happy to stay in bed!

After rising for the day, I got dressed and fixed a cup of milk for my little guy. I then settled in to pump and watched part of Jamerill Stewart’s newest video. I probably will only be pumping for a few more days, which is bittersweet. Moses will be eighteen months old in two days, which was my goal. I can hardly believe his “nursing strike” was the real deal and I’ve been pumping for four months!

I then started helping my second grader with her math assignment. With a little bit of prodding, she decided to double up on lessons and finish her Masterbooks 2 curriculum. I also logged into to HSLDA to renew my membership.

After checking some schoolwork, I settled in to work on a few Etsy orders. Today I made a floral pink skirt, a blue tribal skirt, and a yellow quarterfoil pattered skirt. Lots of lovely skirts! I really enjoy making these items of clothing for little ones.

After bringing tomato and watermelon starts outside, I remembered I had forgotten to start dinner! I quickly put an onion, a chicken breast, a can of cream of chicken soup, and a can of rotel in the crock pot on high around lunch time. Forty minutes before dinner was to be served I baked a spaghetti squash in the oven and added two cups of cheese to the crock pot. An easy and fast dinner!

I made granola bars and put my second load of laundry in the wash before putting Moses down for a nap. I also worked on a website where I’m selling debt free/financial items.

After Moses woke up, my little guys and I went out to the garden. I mounded dirt around our potato plants and weeded around the peppers and calendula. It still has a long way to go, but the garden is getting there!

After speaking to my daughter on the phone, we sat down for dinner. We then visited the goats, and I got back to work on laundry.

It has been a busy, but blessed day. I’m so grateful to have the privilege of spending each day with my family. All of my days are similar, but different. It’s always exciting to wonder what the next day will hold. Can you relate?

How has your day went? I hope it was a good one!

Lord, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? He who walks uprightly, And works righteousness, And speaks the truth in his heart.

Psalms 15:1‭-‬2
