I woke up this morning to a huge puddle of water on my kitchen floor and a fridge/freezer with an interior temperature of 67 degrees. Needless to say, much of the day has been spent cooking thawed out food and putting it in the chest freezer. I didn’t want to get behind, though, so I had an independent work day for the kids. No new lessons, but plenty of work to do on their own.
