I have just a moment as I have been on the go since too dang early and had some problems today but everything is going okay. J and K have decided to haul wood in and give Cleo a bath so I only have a minute but I wanted to spend it with you real quick.
Katie, thank you. You know why.
I have to say I'm inpressed with K. She hasn't been too much trouble, if anything she is a neat freak from the seventh depth of the underworld and takes her schoolwork very seriously. She has alphabetized my pantry, rearranged everything in here for "efficiency." Efficiency my southern border! I can't find a darn thing here! But she hasn't ventured into my space here, even when I say she can come up she only pokes her head over the top rung of the ladder and stays for a few seconds. She has decided that she has chores. She feeds the pets, cleans, washes dishes, and takes the trash out among helping me with things. K is an interesting kid.
She's a typical kid, likes to gross J and me out, and loves playing with the cats. She takes Cleo for walks and brushes her. J is doing well, starting to laugh more and open up more. We're doing some baking this weekend but J is terrified of the stove, she calls it a fire-breathing dragon. Which it is I guess! J started journaling which I think is really good for her and K also has a journal. K has learned to knit already and is making a scarf, something simple to start out with.
Tomorrow I'm going to brew up some mint tea for us, K has never had it. J loves it but buys the store stuff and I have the real thing here. They love my bread and tomorrow we're making sausage bread which they've never had.
Well I hear K yelling and water splashing so I better get downstairs. I forgot to tell K Cleo hates baths.
I've been waiting for two days for this....
Be back later, love, Erin
