*Peter said he was going to come up with something and so I sat there and watched him as he sat in his seat with his flosser and picked this teeth and I sat there and he picked.... And then he said he'd think of something in a moment and then the moment passed and he ran off to work. So needless to say I'm still pondering the menu plan but I wanted to get the blog up to get that to be one thing off my shoulders. 

This Week's 'To-Do' List
  • ..... Amazingly according to the calendar there's no club meetings or other things going on. 

Last Week

Last week I was on vacation and remember when I said I was going to 'spring clean' yeah.... that didn't happen. I kept side tracking myself with fun things. I went out to eat a couple of times, I saw some people, I did some shopping but mostly window shopping.
I never did make that strawberry jam the strawberries I found out were going bad and FAST so I salvaged what I could and sliced and froze them I got about 6 cups up in the freezer now.

 I spent a lot of my time painting glass. Sounds weird but yup that's what I was doing.

Friday, I had my daughter and her friend again. We went to the Y. Oh and Monday I tried jogging with Peter with the Wii fit for 30 min and I was too stubborn to stop when I felt I needed to so my legs were gimpy painful all week another reason we went to the Y so I could soak.... Yes, up to Friday my legs were still killing me! It's not that I'm 'that' out of shape it's because jogging in place I tend to springboard off the balls of my feet when jogging in place which is horrible.

 Saturday, I took the kids down to the library, Peter's on-call this week so he opted to stay home so if he got a call we wouldn't all have to leave. The kids got reading material and I had my youngest pick out some cookbooks because I've been bringing her into the kitchen more. (I would my oldest, Brielle, too but she's been pound with homework on top of wasting time so it means she's spending even longer on homework. Ah the joys of figuring things out the hard way.) I also picked up some healthy cookbooks from the library to see what I might be able to figure out for this overly picky family.
 After the library I took the kids down to Jo-Ann Fabrics because the quilted material they needed for the next 3 4-H projects was on sale for 30% off and then I had a coupon I found on my phone earlier that week for 25% off your total purchase including sale items! It was still a pretty penny but not nearly as bad as it could have been.

 Yesterday I got stubborn I needed to work on the garden because it'll be planting season here very soon. I'm tired of the squirrels and the rabbits and the moles and.... Do I live in the city for the freaking nature reserve! Jeeze!
So I spent my day cutting boards. My first time with a circular saw! My husband was being grumpy with me so I got frustrated and grabbed my tape measure and pencil and his circular saw and drill and went to town. I have one more post I need to get in as you can see it was starting to get dark and dinner from yesterdays meal plan went to today because it got late too so Subway it was!

A friend of mine came over too and helped cultivate the ground and help shovel out old garden boxes and such. She really wants to help me with the garden this year hoping to get lots of produce from it and I'm really hoping this year I don't disappoint. (speaking of which after this I need to go water the seedlings and get the grow lights on)

Yup, nothing spectacular and my house is FAR from sparkling. Infact it's got dirt EVERYWHERE from me working outside LOL. Kind of counter productive to the whole spring clean thing.

ADDITIONAL! I almost forgot a very important thing! Brielle had her test down at the community college for her to take the engineering classes next year in highschool and she passed!!! She may be a procrastinator (wonder where she gets that from) but she's one smart cookie!

  1. It does seem as though you had a fairly nice week away (minus the hurting legs...) and I'm pretty sure that spring cleaning can wait. There's always summer cleaning and fall and...LOL! I'm impressed with how far you are on your garden and here I am just happy to have managed to throw down some grass seed before it snowed (not much). Hope you have a wonderful week!
