Wood. And Lots of it.
Ryan has been working really hard cutting, splitting and stacking wood for the winter. He's gotten several phone calls in the last couple of weeks for: "Wood, free for the taking!" And who can pass up free heat?!
He also went to my parents on Monday afternoon with my brother, Reuben, and they had a FULL day of cutting wood for my parents on Tuesday. He got home Wednesday night about 7:30 pm, sore, but happy.
Since Tuesday has typically been my long day at work and Ryan helps with Jackson on that day, he took the little guy with him! Jackson had a great day helping his Nana do the laundry at the nursing home, and playing with his cousin Lena. He also came home with two new horses, his current obsession. I know that every parent thinks their kid is the smartest one, but really, his verbal skill just amaze me. When he was showing me his new "Hoe-sees", he told me: "Lena haf hoe-sees too." Amazing, I know. He'll be two next week, and his older brother did not even speak until he was 3.
While my mess maker was gone, I was fairly productive. All that cleaning mom and I did last week brought several (ahem) unpacked boxes into the light. I unpacked and organized twelve of them.... ( and no, I did not get finished)
Including my stationary and cards. This is it, excluding my boxed note cards that would not fit in the basket.
I need to start writing some letters!
