WOW. This never happens...

Up at my usual 6.  It isn't even 8 yet, and dishwasher has been switched, laundry started, kitchen cleaned, dusting and vacuuming don't need to be done, as I did them last night (so late, it technically was this morning), ceiling fans cleaned and all the light globes washed, and windows have been cleaned.

I'm watching a couple of little ones today, so after they arrive I will start in on another load of food for the dehydrator--tomatoes in one and potatoes in the other.  I need to do some peppers, but they are hot peppers and I would rather do that outside, but since it is raining, they will have to wait,

Husband was planning on taking the 2 little ones to the pond to fish today, but unless the rain lets up, that won't happen.  Neither will my finishing the rest of the mowing, as I only got the yard half done. But, things have been dry--too dry and we need the rain badly.  My grapes, fruit trees, hay fields and garden beds are begging for the rain.  The rain has also brought some cooler temperatures which I hope hang around awhile. I'd like to be able to open the windows and let the breeze in (plus, I need to clean the screens with the vacuum as well).
