Week 45 – November 5 – 11, 2012
There was snow in the forecast this week, which means that we have hurry up and get a load of firewood in to the house.
The kayak building project helped Jack realize that he isn’t going to fit up old vehicles for use on our farm. I am happy to have him woodworking than working on old trucks. So off to the junk yard they went!
Jack bought this truck in 1998, moved his belongings to Iola from Platteville when he graduated and we moved in together. I have looked at this truck for many years! I was kind of sad to see it go.
The recyling man came back for the second truck that was taking up my space in the garage. I was happy to see this one go.
I bought apples this fall, since our tree didn’t have any, the boys weren’t eating them fast enough so I made them into apple sauce. I love my mehu maija because we get the extra apple juice that would normally be cooked down in the apple sauce making process.
Henry stealing a little juice. Thankfully it was cold.
Nola Mae on my back. Because if I didn’t “babywear” I would never get anything done!
Henry played in our first snow a little bit before going to school.
I was able to walk to the voting polls while Henry was in preschool. (There really was more snow at home than in town)
Nola Mae was very warm under her fleece body suit because I dress her in many colorful layers. This is good practice for when the real snow arrives.
One of the things I love most…is walking into a room and finding one of our boys reading.
Two boys in one night!
I had fun making and eating some homemade bread.
The boys spent a good amount of time standing all the Lincoln logs up. I reminded them that Nola Mae or Henry may crash them down.
That gave them the idea to do it on purpose with Nola Mae
The kayak this week:
One more round of sanding. I don’t have the patience for sanding.
