So I had to:
- Clean off the cutting table which would be folded up to make room for the kid's table.
- Clean off the worktable to put the stuff from the cutting table.
You would think it wouldn't be that hard, but as soon as I got the work table cleanned up, the kids would make another mess. It's not like I have time to do this all at once, and for my sanity's sake, I admit, I let them make the mess while I was tring to keep everything clean.
I wasn't able to do it until MIL and SIL's were there to occupy the kids. Did I menttion that I adore my MIL? She's the sweetest person in the world, and she loves to watch the kids. She and DH took them to the park, and I was finally able to get everything in order for us to all create at the same time.
As for the eating, that's not going well. I think yesterday was one long binge. Today, I'm not doing badly, but I did eat a Cadbury Cream Egg.
Btw, the image is of the gulfstream nandina that I have in the front yard. Nandina's can take a lot of abuse and are drought resistant, so you see a lot of scraggly, neglected ones, but they can be very beautiful and add gorgeous color to a garden in the winter.
The sun was shining for a while.
