Nose to the Grindstone

You know it's been a "nose to the grindstone" kind of day when the only picture you have to show for the day is a photo of dinner. Pittsburgh Pierogies ARE one of the family's favorites.

There was this picture too. 

Any dinner that costs two potholders and oil burns between my fingers - had BETTER be good. ::snort::

What DID we do today? Thursdays are my day with the washer and dryer. We worked hard on school. We researched how to put elastic in to Stacia's PJ's. Michael cut out more insulation for the RV and is cutting lumber for another project I don't fully understand. I checked in with Bible Babes a bit more than usual as we welcome new gals.

I went to a meeting at IDEA. My family is finding great fun at my expense in the bit of news I'm about to share. I'm going to co-lead a club on homesteading starting in January. What do I know about this topic? Nothing. Though they were wanting to grind flour, bake bread and make butter - and I KNOW how to do that. ::snort:: I silenced Michael by telling him one of the weeks we are going on a field trip, buying root stock and learning how to graft apple trees that will survive up here. He's been wanting apple trees.  Seriously, I met a nice lady at the newcomer orientation. I was asking her questions about gardening and chickens. We were overheard and it was suggested we should set up a homesteading club with different topics and speakers. I know how to organize a list of speakers and workshops. See military life did train me for something. ::wink::

Time to get running....we are reading a couple of chapters of Narnia each  night. Digory and Polly await.

I don't know how it all works. LOL Let me check with the lady from IDEA and get back to you - that would be fun.
