My day in pictures!

Friday, October 24, 2008

You know those days when you don't have much to say because it's better shown in pictures? This is one of those, I hope through these you can take a little peek into what I've been up to.

Dishes in the sink this morning, they didn't fit into the dishwasher last night and though I hate going to bed with dirty dishes laying around, I had such a headache that I did just that....and surprise surprise the world didn't end.

Everything looks so much better when the dishes are done and the sink is spotless.

I moved into the laundry room to do a load of darks and now I realize there's a light blue sock in there, on the right. I don't know how I missed it going in, guess it was stuck to something else.

Photobucket

While that was going, I took a quick walk to the mailboxes across the street.

Then it's out back to restock the bird feeder. Boy can these birds eat, I'm constantly refilling this thing.

Photobucket

Since I was out there, might as well start the sprinkler too

Photobucket

It's about lunch time now, how about a Chicken Ranch Club from Lean Cuisine. Who knew they were so tasty?

Photobucket

After lunch I quickly baked up two loaves of bread, it's a new recipe that I was trying and it may not be the best looking bread in the world but I tell you, as simple as the recipe is, I'm surprised at how good it tastes. By far one of the best breads I've baked in a LONG time.

Photobucket

Of course I have to taste it, I mean, I couldn't have told you how good it was had I not sliced it quickly and slathered on a ton of butter....that's how I like my bread, with so much butter than you can't see a crumb LOL

Photobucket

With bread in hand I sat at the computer to check my email and Google Reader

Photobucket

I had some books to add to my shelf, so that's where I went next. Of course I stood in front of that bookshelf for about 30 minutes, just going through the titles and feeling all this happiness knowing that from 3 shelves, 2 and a half are books to be read. But we won't think about that next time we head to the library will we?

Photobucket

I walked by the kids rooms ready to do some major cleaning in there, only to realize that my kids are actually pretty neat. I mean, no clothes or toys all over the floor? Yes there's a baseball bat by the bed, but other than picking that up and fixing his bed covers (I don't know why they look like they've been folded, unless it was his attempt at making his bed)...what else do I need to clean?

Photobucket

The 9 year old girl's room, well now there is where you expect to see a tornado go by....and yet.....pretty neat and clean, minus the unmade bed she forgot. Still not bad though.

Photobucket

Wellmy house is clean, the laundry is done and so are the dishes and I think I'll just sit down and read a little before I have to pick up the kids from school.

  1. Awesome post, Sandra, I loved the photos and the narrative and the lovely peek into your day! That bread looks good. I haven't been baking bread lately, trying to save on the calories, you know. I have to slather tons of butter on mine too, but now that fall is here, I feel more like making bread, and soups/stews too :)

    Hope you enjoy the book and your day, and have a great weekend!

  15. This post made me hungry. That wrap looked delish!

    Your kids rooms are really clean! Wish my boys kept their room so tidy!

    Totally random question for you: how do you post such large pictures on your blog without them coming out blurry? I've tried to resize mine through the HTML and they always turn out distorted :( It's driving me crazy!

  23. OT...

    And I don't even know if you as a Military wife, are allowed to put my comment on your blog. I know Mil blogs have to post a disclaimer on their blogs. But... I'll try.
