A quick update

I am happy to report that I had a very productive weekend towards "This Year".  I was able to have two full days (Saturday & Sunday) at home when I didn't even go out in the car for anything!  Friday I made a menu up for the weekend and went out and got all the groceries we were going to need.  I usually am running out at the last minute getting that other little ingredient, but not this time - whoo hooo!  Friday night I served DH one of his favorites, pork chops and rice with mushroom gravy and southern cooked green beans.  Saturday was Manicotti, garlic bread & a salad.  Sunday was London Broil, baked potatoes and broccoli.  And tonight we had turkey tetrazzini with beets.  It is really nice to be home and cooking on the weekends these days - it seems like it had been forever since I was able to do that.


So, since there was no last minute errands, I was able to put a good bit of time into several projects.  I spent about four hours working on our paperwork prepping for the tax man, six + hours on general housework and laundry, and six hours on inputting charts and leaflets and books into my craft room inventory.  I am not done with any of it, but I am a lot further than I was at the beginning of  the weekend.  And, I was able to put almost five hours into Peaceable Kingdom.

I hope you all had a wonderful and productive weekend as well.  I am amazed at the number of comments that I am getting - how wonderful is that??  Thank you all for visiting my little blog and for leaving such lovely comments.  Until next time, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!!

Great Job on pulling off a perfect weekend. Hopefully this coming weekend will be the same way for you.

Congrats on your stitching progress. I remember when I walked around PALs how much I loved this piece. Maybe it will be finished to show off this year.
