Good morning! I am volunteering at the museum for a program for fourth graders today. My job is in the kitchen: bake bread & cookies with kids, cut up apples & veggies, and make butter. We will eat all those things at lunch.

Other than that, I hope to get out in the garden a bit...

What about you?

Have a great day! SOAP for all of you.

Good Morning,

Lisa, are you a specific person from the time period for your museum volunteer work? I've been to working museums where the employees/volunteers stay in character. My older guys loved those types of museums.

Dd and I were supposed to be in Utah for a quick weekend, but her ankle just will not stop swelling so we're staying put here so she can elevate just as much as possible. Confused

** school for dd
** walk w/dearest friend
** laundry x 1
** work in my room to repurpose the train table
** groceries
** swipe dd's bathroom for her

Have a lovely day, all.

My stomach hurts, but I still choose joy! :-)

Morning! I missed posting yesterday. We were out the door early so I could go to a co-op board meeting. I will probably be having lots of those for a couple weeks. We have a nice list of possible locations for next year and we are waiting for a final approval from several of them. But, we are going to try to start checking them out next week to see which will work best for our group.

I don't have to leave the house today until around 5pm. Then, I just need to take DS to his camp out location. He will be gone until Sunday.

Goals for today:
Find DS's backpack!
Tidy downstairs
Put away a basket of laundry from laundry room
Vacuum upstairs
Call a couple places about having a car wash
Call pedi about DS's health forms for camp
Take DS to camp out

We're lazy bones today.

I purchased some basil and tomato plants, and a huge pot/soil. I'm transplanting them today. Additionally, I have two large pots overcrowded with Aloe Vera. I'll probably have to crack the pots just to free the plants. My plan is to divide them so they can breath a little easier.

Franklin has to patch a tire...nail. Sad I'm just glad he spotted it, and has the day off today.

I have a run to the grocery store and a meal to prep/deliver to a family with their newborn.

Renee, we don't dress up. There are still a couple of living Shakers in Sabbathday Lake, Maine...so it feels disrespectful to do the dress up thing. We are just there to explain and interpret the exhibits.


We get a surprising number of people from Europe and Australia who are mostly interested in Shaker furniture and architecture.

Today I was working in the kitchen with 32 fourth graders (but not all at once! We rotated them through in groups of Cool. We baked bread, made sour cream cookies, churned butter, cut up apples and veggies, and ground wheat berries to make flour. We then set the table for lunch, and offered everyone butter, bread, veggies, and cookies to add to their lunch from home.

I do have a friend who works at a farm museum. She gets to dress up as the wife of the farmer and cook on a fireplace and a wood stove, while explaining her craft. Fun, but wicked hot in the summertime!
