For Today... August 17th, 2015

Outside my window... The sun is shining, its hot and muggy.

I am thinking... that I can't leave my hubby home by himself for a long weekend anymore. It made more work for me upon my return. I am grateful that he started the kitchen cabinets, but what a mess! Its been a busy, busy morning here with all of the cleaning. The cabinets:

I am thankful... for my time away this weekend (even if it made more work for me (see above).

I am wearing... jean shorts and a blue tank top

I am creating... dish cloths, dish towels, cup/mug cozies, rice heating bags, and doll clothes

I am going... to the grocery store (done), no where else today, as I have lots of laundry and cleaning to do today

I am wondering... how we are going to do the counter top in the we get a custom order size, or go with the standard size and modify the lower cupboards.

I am reading... at the moment, nothing.

I am hoping... that things go smoothly for my hubby at work today after being on vacation last week.

In my kitchen... Menu for the week:
Monday ~ sketti and garlic bread
Tuesday ~ breakfast - eggs, sausage, hashbrowns and toast
Wednesday ~ mac-n-cheese and kielbasa
Thursday ~ pizza
Friday ~ deluxe nachos
Saturday ~ out maybe

A favorite quote for today...

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Monday ~ groceries (for this week, small), laundry, cleaning, organizing and doing some videos
Tuesday ~ videos (if I didn't get to them on Monday)
Wednesday ~ work
Thursday ~ work
Friday ~ groceries, light housework
Saturday ~ spending time with the hubby
Sunday ~ church and then not sure what else

From the board room... From my Yummy Desserts, Cookies and Treats board.

    Are you going to blog your stitch fix? I love reading the reviews. Maybe someday I will be able to try it myself.

  2. I did a video of the unboxing of it, that will be posted here, along with a written review of it. It should be posted sometime today.

  3. I enjoyed your post. Looks like your weekend away was fun. Would love to see your stitchfx clothes. I always wonder how someone else would choose clothes for me.
