An an effort to post more often I'm going to just randomly post and hope that some where along the line inspiration will hit. :D
So what has happened this past week? Well, I've been removed from the cheese room (yes, I know. pull your jaws off the ground you'll catch flies that way!) So, where does that leave me? Well as soon as I can get out of vacation mood--Which will be hard since I leave in 10 days again. I am now the one cooking the meals, keeping the kitchen clean, washing and drying the laundry, help teaching the kids.
Cooking I love to do (which is one reason I love the cheese room). So, that's going to be a piece of cake, esp since I've got wonderful market food to cook with and creating new dishes and learning how to cook new food items & old items new ways has been a favorite pastime of mine since I was 12. Now, the cleaning is a whole 'nother problem to deal with. I guess that's one thing I can use my spare time with....Cleaning the kitchen, instead of having my younger siblings do it all the time for me. lol
Laundry not every one's favorite thing to do, but hey someone has to do it right? As long as I don't have to put it away (I am forever mixing up the girls clothing much to their frustration.) I'm good. I can wash, dry, and fold laundry all day long without a problem. And with the extensive clothes line that we have I don't have to wait for the dryer to finish before I start the next load of laundry. I can wash and hang 7 loads of laundry without having to worry about waiting to start the next load of laundry. :D
Lastly--Teaching the children. I LOVE teaching I've been teaching (either all the time or as I can squeeze it in around cheese making) for the past 8 years. It's something I love doing more then cheese making. So, way younger brothers & sisters you better watch out, school starts tomorrow! (O.K. I'll wait until Monday.)
So, all that being said where does it really leave me? Well, extra time on my hands. Here I sit on a Friday night instead of packing or worrying how long it's going to take to pack I'm typing out this post about to head to bed as soon as I show Emma our new toy (a heating gun for shrink wrapping soaps.). Also it gives me more time to run errands for the family without stressing over when I'm going to run errands and make cheese. Add more soap making, maybe a more in person and online social life, more time for me & most defiantly a less stress full life for me now and in the long run.
So, that being said. Night one and all, see those of your that I do at market tomorrow morning. Those that I don't see have a good weekend!
