Monday, after breakfast, the girls settled in to read and draw. I asked if they'd done their teeth. Nope. Virtual school begins at 9:00. I asked if they wanted to do their teeth now, or wait until 8:30. They chose to wait. No worries.
I asked, again, and they chose 8:30.
Grampa and I were working on his PSA test, on the phone with a Life Labs manager (twice – more on this another day). The time slipped by. By 8:48, noticing the time, I said they best hustle to log in. They rushed downstairs to do teeth. ("Or Momma will rip my head off!") Wednesday, it'll be done right after brekkie. They agreed. The school bus was about to leave.
Grampa: "Are you girls OK getting down the hall on your own?"
"Good one, Grampa!"
OK, back to business. Izzy had a Girl Guide meeting, so dinner was quick. We were to make Choux. You fill them with whipped cream, or ice cream after. That's the theory.
We read the details in advance. We watched the How-To video. Prepared the kitchen in advance. Measured out all the ingredients in little bowls (the way the TV chefs do). Izzy and I were ahead of the others in the virtual meeting. I'm glad we watched the video.
We were too tired to build a fire, so I put on the little room heater. What a day!
