This morning marked the beginning of our second semester of the school year. We all had to be up early and completing chores so we could get a good start on assignments. Some did better than others with this. 😉 One child in particular was working until about 3:30 p.m. due to dawdling. I am hopeful that tomorrow will be a bit better time-wise for said child. Hailey had her first piano lesson of the new year this morning, too.
Personally, the morning was a great success for me. I was able to get up with the girls, feed them and myself, and even have a conversation with my husband at the table before he left for work. That never happens when I sleep in! After breakfast, I immediately went to work preparing some pumpkin bread. Emma, Elle, & Corbin helped me mix in ingredients. By about 9:30 a.m. I was already pulling the loaves out of the oven to cool.
Now, that may not seem so amazing to you….and I admit it’s not really amazing…..but being so productive by that time in the morning is a big deal around here these days! Karl and I already planned to get to bed earlier tonight so we can continue our productivity tomorrow. I also made a run to the post office as well as to the bank on our trip out to take Hailey to her lesson.
I will say that, by afternoon, I had lost steam and I have not been as productive as this morning, though I do at least have dinner waiting to go into the oven. I will continue to work on our schedule, adding and tweaking until we have everything organized just the way it should be. It will help me to keep going when I want to stop if it is written on the white board for all to see!
Speaking of dinner, I created a new dish for tonight. Look for the new recipe, as well as my pumpkin bread recipe, to show up in my ‘Recipes’ tab later this week!
Did you have a productive day? Leave a comment to tell me how it went!
