my productivity is directly proportional to the hour of the day. i always start out strong cleaning and baking and folding clothes while the kids eat breakfast. by lunch im checking my email in between reading books, and by evening i am an ice cream eating sloth on the couch.
my neighbor rachel and i split a 25 lbs bag of rolled oats and currently a delicious batch of granola is baking in the oven. hazelnuts! almonds! sunflower seeds! raspberries! cherries! oh my! i plan on mixing this up with some plain bran flakes and making some bulk cereal. i've got to get some clear canisters in various sizes for the kitchen. i've got the basic baking needs, popcorn seeds and the like in canisters already but there are other things that i need smaller sizes for (different kinds of nuts, seeds, dried fruit, cookies, situations like now where i have a lot of granola, etc). i am going to make another go at making bread. all of my previous attempts have been way too dense so i gave up. my friend olivia sent me some bread recipes that i have archived in my email. time to bust those out methinks.
5 pm : i'm not tired!!
my kids have croup. auggie started getting sick on saturday, smack dab in the middle of our date of course. fever, coughs, lethargy. then yesterday morning olive woke up barking like a seal and had a fever of 100+. aug is on the mend but olive is in the thick of it. my poor beebs.
EDIT: granola is done. if i were a hobbit the following meal would be called "elevensies" but since i'm not ill simply say im having "brunch" or "second breakfast".
