Domestic Chores and Small Blessings

John and I didn't get up until almost 9 a.m. this morning;
very unusual and quite delightful to have such a luxury.
Tomorrow it's back to the usual; a 5:30 a.m. wake-up time as
John goes back to work on day shift. I'm thankful for the
extra hour we'll get with the time change. I'll put it
to good use!

I woke up Owen and Hugh in time for their haircut
appointments at 10:00 a.m. It's convenient that they only
have to go about two blocks away so they can walk there. I
made certain I took my shower while they were gone so I'd
get my share of the hot water! This is a concern if you
live in a house with teenagers in it; they like looooong
showers!

I saw Mr. Doerfler at the post office when I went to pick up
the mail. He always asks about the boys. He was their
elementary school principal, now retired. This was Shedd
School, a little country school with about 80 students. It's
closed now. Someday I'll made a quilt depicting the
Christmas a bear showed up at the playground. The school
was closed for the holidays so there was no danger to the
kids. I've always wanted to make a quilt depicting that and
perhaps someday I'll get to it.

John and Gavin went to the country house this afternoon to
get rid of all the clippings, grass, and leaves. They saw a
family of quail by the road on Seefeld. They brought home a
flat full of the last of the tomates and peppers. The rain
has put off juicing the grapes until later this week. We're
thinking of bringing the dog and cats into town on Tuesday
for their shots. John will be working night shift on the
30th and 31st so it probably won't be until Thursday or
Friday before we can start on the grapes.
