Day 19

Lexi was very excited to start the day with our Royal Crest dairy delivery. Only it was the orange juice she was excited about. Love having a milkman again, particularly one who also has juices, bagels, butter, creams of various kinds, eggs, coffee, bread, and more! Computer time for home schooling was popular this morning. Math and Yoga online are pictured below. Tracy has all the bags for her TimberCreek Kids ready to go. The twins' reading today was about drums, their significance around the world - so we got out some drums. We picked up at Kneaders for lunch and Matt cooked steaks for dinner. Fosters filed their tax returns about 2 weeks ahead of the regular date and 3.5 months ahead of the COVID-19 deadline. It's normally an April 15th event. Champagne! An interesting note about trash since we've been staying at home: it's increased, dramatically. Now that everything's coming to the house in boxes and we're not leaving some amount of trash at restaurants, etc. we don't fit in our two cans (regular and recycle) very well.

This coming Sunday is...

Day 18

Last day of "Spring Break." Tomorrow it's back to school...at home. Lunch from Vaqueros. Lite dinner. Movies this evening: The Watch, and Delivery Man. It was a Vince Vaughn night.

Popular with the animals.

That's not hoarding. That's meals and supplies for 11.

Lynn's first online exercise class.

Unloading the car Tracy filled up.

AJ and crew set up his new terrarium.

Practice style setup.

Day 17

Breakfast of waffles thanks to Tracy's hankerin'. We attended church online again; that's Fina giving the service a woop-woop. Fina made her own boba (made what?). AJ got the mail using his motorcycle. Today's game was Monopoly: Ultimate Bank edition. Progress continues on Tracy's puzzle. And Fina carts some groceries in the 2nd bag she made (with Nana). I hear the boys are going out for some ping pong (50 degrees, better not be windy). It's grilled chicken for dinner. And even the dogs are napping heavily. Tonight's movies: Heat and Tag. We closed the day with a little French bubbly.

Day 16

Matt whipped up eggs sunny side up, cheese and bacon omelettes, and fried polenta (remember Day 14) for breakfast. Nana and the boys finished up the quilt they've been working on, so off to the quilter hopefully today (porch drop). Lexi asked me what my favorite color was - green. So she drew me the picture below of me (top left) and here (top right) in an alpine forest, I think. Nana and Fina worked on a second tote bag while watching another Hunger Games movie. Fina got into toilet decorating and the boys continued with big screen game playing.

Day 15

First day of the 3rd week. We're definitely hanging in there. Scroll down through the pics for a gander at what we were up to today. We had ice cream delivered this evening! And tonight's movies? Hunger Games 1 and 2.

Monopoly by cards.

SITW tomatoes are doing very well.

Quilt work continued

Lynn's new sewing room became a beehive, momentarily.

Fina spent much of the day doing song parodies

The new ping pong table got a little workout.

The twins love these magnetic blocks. Been using for years.

Day 14

Sorry, not many pics. Still in the middle of Spring break, which just means the kids don't have as much school stuff to do as "normal." There's still 30 minutes of reading and math stuff, but after that it's just enrichment, and games, and devices. Matt decided it was time to make polenta. Afterall, it's been 30-some years. And it must have beef stew to go with. The Shutterfly photobook of Cheap Date arrived today! And we dropped Megan's off next door; they loved it. All the pillows for the new patio furniture arrived, too, along with some liquid soap.

Day 13

We did our first drive-by-a-teachers-house to pick up a packet. I'm expecting a music drop-off to accompany a video of last year's Stations of the Cross that I'm making for this Easter season. Nana had quite a bit of help assembling the last Adirondack chair for the front garden area (note that weeping spruce in the background!). There were more Easter Rocks painted and even a few hidden in the backyard. And card games. And baseball throwing practice. And Fina decided to tackle making her own bag. Oh, and AJ received his first MEL Chemistry kit in the mail and Tracy got a supplies package for what she's got cookin' for TimberCreek Kids this Easter. If you hadn't caught on yet, the photos in these "DAY X" posts aren't necessarily in chronological order.
