HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY

I hope everyone has plans for a Memorial day full of family and friends tempered with just enough solemness for the occasion.

We had a VERY productive weekend – mainly because Saturday morning we awoke to find that hubby had left the freezer open Friday night and all the ice and everything else had melted right onto the kitchen floor.  So, it put me into a major cleaning and sorting mode and boy did I go!!!  I filled the car twice with donations plus did 2 loads of wet towels.

THE WEATHER OUTSIDE
Cool and sunny, but looks are deceiving as I know we will be near 85 today.

AS I LOOK OUTSIDE MY WINDOW
I see squirrels chasing and running all over – up and down trees.

ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE
A scrambled egg and English muffin.

AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE
I am VERY happy with ALL that we accomplished this past weekend and am grateful for not needing to jump up and dive in to make the house presentable for when my uncle comes for dinner later.

TO DO FOR THE WEEK

  • Paint new molding in living room.
  • Sorting and organizing studio.
  • Sorting donation pile.
  • Hang living room fan.

CURRENTLY READING

TELEVISION / DVR
I think there are a few new shows this week, but I haven’t checked yet.

KITCHEN WISHES
I’ve been doing some “soul” searching in this department.  There was a time when I wanted and “needed” kitchen gadgets.  The older I get I realize that I truly get my enjoyment from the basics in cooking – chopping and prepping the way my grandmother used to. One of the things I did over the weekend was to sort through gadgets and kitchen tools.  I only kept my very favorites and LOVE how cleaned out my drawers are.

HOUSE PROJECTS

Not much of a picture, but it’s of the molding. We had to shift things around to get the whole room done, but we had put ALL the furniture on those heavy duty felt pads so it was a bit easier.  Hubby got the last of the outlets changed out for me too.  All that’s left are the few electrical things that the electrician will be here Tuesday to finish.

This pile for the trash man is getting smaller each week, but still a mess when it rains.  We did get a portion of the Magnolia tree pruned and the gutters cleaned on the garage.  I don’t think the tree had been pruned since grams planted it 40 years ago.

THINGS THAT ARE MAKING ME HAPPY

These are just a couple of the piles we donated to the women’s shelter this last week.
