Though we homeschool, little Milt takes courses at his school three days each week. On this particular day, we had roughly three-and-a-half hours to run errands and shoot the breeze. The first thing I did was secure a cup of Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks. I was ready to hit the road. Come to think of it, any road trip, no matter how short or long, always commences with a tall, hot, caramel macchiato, but I can’t turn down Pumpkin Spice lattes once the fall season sets in.
I don’t think I’ve ever told you, but my hubby and I own a commercial janitorial business. He also does many other things such as remodeling/construction, pressure washing, carpets, floors, painting, tiles, and pretty much everything else.
We normally capitalize on any free moment we can get to be by ourselves. We always have such a great time in each other’s company. Before we could do anything though, we had to head up to a small building that he cleans five days each week.
While he was inside doing this job, I set up my tripod, and I also went to work. Before I was even finished taking these pictures, he was back downstairs. I don’t know if you can tell, but the job doesn’t take much time.
Before we picked up little Milt from his earth science lab class, we rushed home so I could start a bread in the bread machine. I had a taste for a particular dish for dinner, and the bread was a crucial part of it. The rest of the meal included a baked ziti with meat sauce and veggies. As you can see, Milton is making the meat sauce. For the most part, cooking is his department. I cook some things, but baking is where I contribute the most.
This was our day. This is how most of our days are. We are very low-key. Being together, and sometimes with family and friends, is what brings us the most joy. We spent the majority of the time talking about the dining room chairs we need to order, some trips that we’d like to plan, and how our bedroom remodel can no longer be put off. Trust me, it’s a wreck in there!
I am really excited to announce that I will be teaming up with a fantastic group of bloggers and shops to put together a giveaway on my Instagram page. Please stay tuned as it is coming up very shortly.
How do you fill the hours of your day?
