A Week in the Life of Hallee: Thursday

This wasn’t a typical week for me by any stretch of the imagination.  But, I thought that you might enjoy seeing the process that I went through to prepare my home for my husband’s return and to plan for Scott and Johnathan’s combined birthday party, which included out-of-town family being here.  So, here it is, one of the craziest weeks of my life.  I have determined that I will do this again once school starts and I do have a typical week, so that you can see that I’m not always so insanely overwhelmed with life.  For this entire series, click here.

Thursday was probably the most productive day of the week for me.

I got up early and wrote a blog post.  Often, I write them the morning they need to publish.  If you remember my goals to accomplish before Gregg got home, you’ll know that I didn’t get caught up and ahead on blog posts.  ::hangs head in shame:: But, I don’t think I’ve missed a day yet, so that’s good!

I ground some wheat and started cooking for the party and for the home.  While I got bread rising for our daily bread, I made a rotisserie turkey breast.

I baked oatmeal for breakfast.

While I did my 3 Chores You Should Do Every Morning, and as I was making the boys’ beds, it occurred to me how different they are — dinosaurs and cars for one, superheroes for the other.  It makes me happy to see them growing independently of each other, despite how close they’re growing up.

Once the bread was risen and the loaves in the oven, I started making sandwich buns for the party on Saturday.

One rotisserie breast came out of the oven, and another one went in.

While bread was rising, baking, and meat cooking, I went to weed my herb garden.

The kids all spent the morning playing in the swimming pool.  We fed them a simple lunch.

After lunch, Danielle read them books while I went back to work on the food.  Jeb fell asleep on her shoulder.

I put a beef roast in the rotisserie oven.

Then made my Independence Day Wreath (the instructions on how to make it will publish on Friday, July 1st.)

I made sixty total buns, three roasts, and then decided to go out for Mexican for dinner.

Somehow, I don’t have pictures of the evening.  After dinner, we came home, put the kids to bed, and I went to bed, excited that Gregg would be home the next day.
