How was your weekend?
I enjoyed a super quiet 'no workers drilling out bricks on my house' weekend. Today they are coming to take down the scaffolding. Next up are the roofers. I don't know when they are coming here, end of this week?
Besides being deliciously quiet, I enjoyed doing a little bit of everything. Writing, journaling, knitting and reading. Sure I did some chores as well. My kitchen floor is squeaky clean!
Today I'm writing out the mighty to do list and sketch out a menu plan. If you haven't already, please read Bonny's menu plan post and especially the comments section. I found it helpful!
I am nearing the end of knitting my grandson's Christmas sweater, what a fast knit!!
How was your weekend?
Beautiful sweater and beautiful flowers. I'm glad you had a quiet, peaceful weekend.ReplyDelete
I'm glad you enjoyed a quiet weekend before the roofers show up! We have a refrigerator full of leftovers, so that's dinner tonight. But that gives me time to plan my next week's worth of meals. I benefited greatly from all the comments people were so kind to share!ReplyDelete
The weekend was painful... sigh. I hope your week of workers provides you some moments of quiet!ReplyDelete
Ah, the peace and quiet of no hammers and drills. I'm sure you, Frodo, AND Holly were much happier.ReplyDelete
Hooray for a quiet weekend. Baby knits are such a joy because the work up quickly. Not to mention how cute they are. Thanks for the link about menu planning. Now I want to look at the paprika app. I plan 2 weeks at a time. Fresh ingredients are purchased weekly though.ReplyDelete
Is that a zinnia? I have some I'm growing from seed, but they haven't bloomed yet. We went to the lake this weekend, as it was hot and sunny here.ReplyDelete
Yes it is, I snapped that at my sister's yard.Delete
I can't function without a menu plan. Isn't it great when the workers go away and it's your house again.ReplyDelete
What are those pink flowers called? I had a neighbour back home who had them but I never knew what they were.ReplyDelete
It is a variety of yarrowDelete
I love your grandson's sweater. You are really making progress on that. The pink flowers are gorgeous. I hope that your home renovations continue to go well. See you again soon! Have a good week.ReplyDelete
Glad you had a peaceful weekend! That sweater sure is cute, and your flowers are amazing.ReplyDelete
My meal pkanning system is awesome - I let my daughter deal with it. LOL It works out great, except my husband tends to raid the fridge and eat half the needed ingredients for snacks.ReplyDelete
our neighborhood is going through a re-roofing phase (many homes had damage from a hailstorm last summer) and a day when it's quiet is a most welcome day! love the quick progress you're making on your grandson's sweater!ReplyDelete
Lovely flowers Karen, I have never seen Yarrow that colour, we sometimes have light pink ones, they are a gorgeous colour. That jumper is such a quick knit, it will be off the needles by now I am sure!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your meal planning, I swear by it but I know it is not for everyone.
I'm glad you had a weekend of peace and quiet. What pretty flowers and a darling little sweater.ReplyDelete
