So, this week, I have been trying out having a daily theme. My plan for the week was this.
Monday - Nature day
Tuesday - Baking day
Wednesday - Market day
Thursday - Craft day
Friday - Friends, Fun, and Field Trips day
Saturday - Sabbath day
Sunday - Service day
I started this Monday. I planted flowers with Blessing #2 and took Blessings #1 and #5 grocery shopping with me. Originally it was to get stuff for baking day, but it ended up being a regular market trip.
Tuesday I made blueberry muffins and tortillas, but didn't really bake with my kids as I had hoped to do.
Wednesday, I baked cookies with the kids since we'd already gone to the market. I also started work in my garden. I offered the kids, 1 cent for every rock and weed they took out of my garden plot. There are so many rocks in there it could cost me a bit if they actually keep collecting them. My thought is, we can either use them for art or to someday build a chimney for a wood burning stove. We don't have one yet. We have a gas burning stove. I hope to switch it out someday though.
Today, I spent most the day working in the garden. For crafting, Blessings #3 and #4 tried finger knitting with me. It is actually pretty easy, so I thought they'd catch on quickly. Blessing #3 decided pretty quickly it was boring and Blessing #4 just followed #3.
I'm looking forward to seeing what tomorrow brings, if we are granted another day. In fact, I'm looking forward to what the summer will bring as we build our rhythm.
