Goals and Menu Week Ending April 27, 2014

Easter was really nice but very quiet with hubby in Missouri and daughter in Bahrain. The older grandson was with his mother so it was just my son, son-in-law and the baby. We ate out and had a nice time but I missed having a big Easter dinner. Sadly, I forgot to put the computer card in the camera so this screen shot during Facetime is the picture we have of the baby seeing a baby lamb... Thanksfully, my daughter got to see it too, technology is amazing.

I have finished planting the garden and am working my way through weeding, cleaning out and mulching flower beds. The job of weeding is tough work. If I had been on top of this and mulched in March, the beds would have been easier to handle but no use crying over spilled milk. At least the garden looks good, is planted, weeded and mulched. Next up planting flower pots. My son-in-law built me two old fashioned life guard stands to plant my pots on.  This photo shows the old one... The new ones need a coat of paint and ready to plant.

The living room project starts in two weeks, after classes end. One of the pieces I am reupholstering is going slow... also I am busy with a baby and the flower beds but I wanted to complete it before we start the living room. I also wanted to finish sewing my daughter's grocery bags. She returns next week from the Middle East and I wanted to surprise her with these bags. I made myself some here.

Lastly, I am working on my plans for the 16 weeks of summer that I have before the fall semester starts... 16 weeks of gardening, painting, two major room remodels, sewing, cooking and baking. We will host a bridal shower and a Fourth of July Party so I need to be organized. The summer can fly by if I don't have a solid plan... As you know, I have a plan for everything. Summer is no exception. I also planned for the summer; laying by the pool, laying in the pool, afternoon naps, a trip to the beach, playing with grandchildren, antique shopping with daughter, a shopping trip to Atlanta and summer grilling. Have you started planning for the summer? It will be here before you know it.

  1. Are the pictures captured by the internal memory?
    The 'life guard' plant stand is great, that would work well on my tiny deck. I always enjoy your menus, they're so inspiring.
    Hope you have a great week!
