I looked at the to-do list I made last week and am happy to say I can cross off almost everything on it. It only took me 2 weeks. I think I either need smaller lists or more time. Here is what I have been up to:
-I have made 2 loaves of banana oat bread, 1 batch of blackberry strawberry freezer jam, 1 loaf of gluten free bread.
-From 12 juiced grapefruit I made grapefruit curd and a pan of grapefruit bars.
-My garden is almost completely done, including a upgrade in size. I am growing tomatoes, onions, peppers, potatoes, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, herbs, lettuce, spinach, green beans, snap peas, cucumbers, and kohlrabi.
-I hung herbs to dry
-I have folded massive amounts of laundry...with more yet to do. All washed with my homemade laundry soap.
-I recovered the "green monster" which is another post entirely.
-I added a sitting area in my bedroom, where I am currently sitting, so that my laptop has a home other than the kitchen table.
- I got a new dining room table and chairs from my neighbor who is moving. This thing is little but opens up with 5 leaves and can seat 12. And it was free.
- I have made 2 batches of regular yogurt and one batch of dairy free.
Notice I don't say anything about cleaning because I am fairly sure cleaning is a complete waste of time. It doesn't stay done. My kids couldn't care less. I hate doing it. So if you stop by my house I am happy to sit and chat with you over some Divine bread and jam, but you will have to be ok with the sand box sand on my floor and the dishes in the sink.
So have I earned my "Domestic Goddess" badge yet?
