I was rained out today so I got to play House Dad.
I can get used to this. The kids are at school and the wife is at her holiday job. The house is quiet with only the sounds of the crackling fire and the occasional beeping of the washing machine telling me to get with it.
Early this morning I started a pot of beans and the cornbread will be accompanying them later. I made sugar cookies so the kids can have an after school snack plus I made some fresh bread to have as a snack just because.
I have candles lit to make the house smell like pumpkins, all the laundry has been done, folded and put away. I thought about dirtying up a cup just so I could wash it again but decided not too. The floors have been swept at least a dozen times and the counters have been wiped at least two.
I started a new book called "The Walk" and it seems to be a good one but got bored so I put it down.
The boredom overtook me so I got out all the firearms and re-oiled them. They are all now at rest. I kept a loaded .22 Henry out all day just in case I got a good shot on a passing dog, no luck.
The TV has not been on at all. The only thing on is a couple of oil lamps I have in the hallway so I do not stub my toe on the way to the pantry. Speaking of which, the pantry is reorganized and everything is "faced" in alphabetical order.
It is almost time for everyone to be home so I must do my duties and set the table.
God I hope I work tomorrow.
