Day in my life - August

This month I'm joining in with the day in my life thing sponsored by 50's housewife. It's supposed to be "A Housewife's Life" but she said those who aren't full-time homemakers could participate. I decided to mostly use photos. When I was young, I babysat for someone who had only two clocks in the house - one in the master bedroom and the one on the stove. I hated having to walk to the stove to see what time it was. I vowed I would have more clocks when I grew up and as you can see from the photos, I have plenty!

Washed dishes before work.

On my way to work.

Reading a book outside on lunch.
Time to go home!

Nathan helped me with lots of freezer cooking.

Started dishes and continued packing food as it cooled.

Checked some websites, talked and prayed with Nathan, and thought I was going to bed.
I was so worried about my old fridge cooling and freezing everything that I plopped down on the floor and started cleaning out gunk from the coils. I really need to do a thorough job soon.

Finally, in bed.

I have lots of clocks in my house too. Mostly because I rarely wear a watch. :)

Sounds like you had a very productive day! I need to clean out from under my fridge too. Thanks for participating in A Housewife's Life!

Wow, what a day! You're my inspiration!

Just stopping by as a fellow participant :) I have a lot of clocks too and never wear a watch. I always start cooking to store in the freezer but I never keep up with it. You just reminded me that I should :) It makes life so much easier!!

I am always amazed at how much moms who are not at home all day can get done!

I would NEVER survive with only 2 clocks in the house. I couldn't live without my cell phone and the clock in my car! Those are probably the two I check most!

P.S. Have you ever had brownies and onion dip? Chocolate and onions are my two very favorite foods. I have always had a wish to try a chocolate-dipped-onion ring recipe, but I can't find anybody to share it with.

Thanks for visiting! I was going to ask you if you live anywhere nearby so we could get together for a chocolate/onion party. I had an onion party for my many onion-loving friends a couple of years ago, but they draw the line at chocolate/onion combination. :-( If you're ever in the neighborhood...
