Whew... it feels like it's been crazy morning already. I'm pooped.
The wee-lings' laundry has been folded and put away. There's another load in the washer that I have to deal with.
Everyone's dressed, beds are made and the diswasher is empty. Breakfast and a snack have been consumed, and lunch is in process.
Pippin has been is major teething pain today. Seriously, even with a solid dose of ty.len.ol he was still in sooo much pain, poor wee man. He seem's to be mellow at the moment, which is a blessing.
But the big task on today's list is well under way and I'm thankful that the hard part of it is over. I peeled and chopped 50+ apples this morning to make applesauce. Ginny was fascinated with how the apples floated in the sink full of water. I had enough apples to fill my slow cooker and another large pot on the stove. She also managed to munch down almost a whole apple, stolen from the pile of apples I had chopped. As an added bonus, the hobbit hole smells divine!

of water, and stir it often.
While Ginny naps later, I'm going to put our Christmas lights out on the balcony because it's rather nice out today (above freezing). Then I'm hopefully going to give my kitchen a real deep cleaning. After that it will be time to prep for dinner (Pork Souvlaki, Greek salad, and lemon roasted potatoes. YUM!). And I'm hoping to get to the dollar store after dinner.
Man oh man... all this while I'm still feeling the effects of the crud. No wonder I'm tired. :)
