    Good morning friends & fellow warrior parents, :warrior:

    As I've yet to sleep tonight I thought I'd start the good morning thread. In the meantime, I have dusted, watered plants, cleaned the bathroom, used lemon wax on my kitchen cabinets & oiled down my butcher block island.

    Don't kid yourselves, I'm tired & feel like someone ran over me....but I'm tired with a clean kitchen & bathroom & the vacuum needs to be run in the living/dining room. :smile: :rolleyes:

    I expect I'll sleep tomorrow after husband runs kt & I on a few errands.

    It's supposed to be a sunny day today, like yesterday. husband & kt have a couple of last minute yard things to accomplish & then it can snow like a sun of a gun for all I care. :blizzard: The yard will be ready for next season.

    Here's to a good Saturday for all of you. I hope your difficult children cooperate, that you can get done what you had planned & you find time for fun & a reason to smile. Hug your loved ones! :flower:

    G'day, Linda. My, you HAVE been busy!

    I'm cooking a lamb soup tonight, I can smell it wafting through the house, smells like it's done. We've had dinner, but we had these 'bits' filling the freezer, it was time to do something. So I roasted the bones (with bits of meat on them) then simmered them yesterday. Today I picked the meat off the bones and tonight (when easy child 2/difficult child 2 got home with more vegetables, I've put it on.
    She got the bits of celery for free - a customer bought a bunch of celery and easy child 2/difficult child 2 asked, "Would you like me to trim the tops off for you?"
    So I got the trimmings for the soup - I'm happy, the customer was happy - the price was right, too.

    This afternoon I took difficult child 3 and difficult child 1's girlfriend to the beach. girlfriend & I catnapped (she in my tent) while difficult child 3 played. The water was lovely but I didn't feel like a swim (still not strong). So I chatted to neighbours who are there every weekend. We're already enjoying our beach, and we're not even into summer yet. A few more weeks. A lovely afternoon, then home to tidy the garden. girlfriend's mother arrived to collect girlfriend & difficult child 1. girlfriend is about to move into her own unit, she is very happy to be leaving home.

    We have an art exhibition on in the village this weekend - difficult child 3 & I saw it today, husband & mother in law are going tomorrow. It's an annual fundraiser for the local school, it's the biggest earner of the year. Tomorrow is also the school fair, so it should be interesting. Will the local brats leave difficult child 3 alone this time? We shall see...

    Enjoy your Saturday.

    Marg- your soup sounds good, i have not had lamb since i was a kid.

    Tm- have fun at the banquet

    difficult child and i had a house warming party last night, difficult child ended up leaving to go to a dance at school, as he says to check out the chicks, yikes i have a true teen boy now. It was a lot of fun having everyone over, as this is not usally my thing. They all chipped in and got us some nice stuff. Tonight i will cooking my mom dinner, let's hope i remember how to cook, as difficult child is so picky i don't do it often. Have a great day everyone!

    Last day of work, then 4 off. Have a horrible headache tonight. :ill: Got to bed late yesterday and nobody woke me up. I had 20 minutes. :surprise: That contributed to my headache. I would of left already but I gave my partner a ride to work as his car broke down. :rolleyes:
