Daily Life day #3 – just a normal day

Day 3 of my month of Daily Life posts. Not much happened. Today was one of those days I seemed to be busy all day, but didn’t get anything tangible accomplished like yesterday. I was planning on working some more outside, but I’m not feeling very well today.

I cooked three breakfasts at different times (mine at 7am, the girls’ at 8:30am, and Mom’s at 9:30am.)  Took care of Mom while Dad went to breakfast with friends and then worked outside in the yard. Let the chickens out of the run to roam. Started laundry (which reminds me, I need to go switch loads.) Ummm… I’m sure there was more between breakfast and lunch. After lunch I took Flower Girl for a walk around the block.

She’s finally learned to pedal her tricycle all by herself.


Then it was home and some computer work. Helped Princess Girl with some of her school work. My wonderful Hubby made dinner, which was awesome. Then I laid on the couch and vegged with the girls and my man.

So you know, a normal, mundane type of day.

I should have done more actual work on the computer (you know, rather than Pinterest). I should have gotten up to vacuum since our vacuum was in the shop for several days and the carpets are nasty! I should have switched laundry around several more times and put clothes away. I should have documented some ideas I have for the homestead.

But it didn’t happen.

And I’m ok with that. It’s not every day I have a legitimate reason to take it easy. 

And I know that realistically not every day can be blog worthy (though I seem to be doing a pretty good job of turning it into one. 😉 )

But that’s life.

At least that’s my life.


“I lift up my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.” Psalm 121

About Maridy

Hi, I'm Maridy. I have many interests in life. Right now, my husband and I and our two girls (ages 14 and 7), along with a couple of dogs currently live in a 33ft trailer while we build our house on our homestead property in Northern Nevada (Castle Rock Homestead). Follow us on that journey to building our high desert homestead from the ground up! I also have a passion for hiking and have a blog for that, too. (Journey in the Wilderness) Join me there as I explore the beautiful outdoor landscapes of Northwestern Nevada and Eastern California. And finally, I love historical costuming. Though I haven't been able to do much of that in recent years, I'm hoping that "once the house is built" I'll be able to get back into it more. See what all we've done with that on my Yesteryear Productions blog.
