This weekend, I . . .


* Organized galore! A necessity after being on the run since the first of June.

* Cleaned the pantry.

* Cleaned the fridge.

* Cleaned the freezer.

* Made two loaves of bread.

* Made a menu plan.

* Got caught up on paying bills.

* Sent my oldest son to the grocery store with a long list and was so happy to have someone else do the shopping.

* Went for two long walks with my daughter and a very energetic puppy.

* Ate a cherry chocolate chip ice cream cone.

* Spent Sunday morning at a park with girlfriends, discussing a fabulous book, Tattoos on the Heart, by Gregory Boyle.

* Spent Sunday afternoon at a baseball field (I know, I said it was over, but it's never over) while my middle child was at a clinic, and read half of a book.

* Made reservations for a short out-of-town getaway for me and the kids.


I'm hooking up with Becky at Keys to the Cottage. How was your weekend? I'd love to hear about it!

Becky said...

We did lots of organizing and cleaning out around here too. Something in the air?

Or ... maybe it is just too hot to get outside. You did your part though.

And I have to write that book down. I get a lot of recommendations from you and I am always happy.

Hope you have a great week Karen. thanks for playing :)

Hi Karen~
Wow! Looks like you've got the cleanest kitchen around! :~D Care to come do mine?
Mmmm!Cherry chocolate chip ice cream ~ Becky mentioned ice cream, too! I'm going to have to break down and get some. Sounds delish!

About my profile picture ~ it is called 'The Egg Basket' and is by Robert Duncun. (I think). I love that painting and I have a small print in my home. I have had chickens forever and rather like to think of it as a portrait of me in my 'younger' days!

Have a great week!

Well, it's Wednesday, so the weekend is a long ago memory now. LOL. I know I wasted an hour and a half of my life watching "Bride Wars" which I thought was an absolutely awful movie. I know I got lots of reading in there, and uhm, picked a paint color which we then changed. I know, I lead an incredibly exciting life. :vD

Well, somehow I missed this one.
When are you going to sloooooow down? Goodness. At least you have gotten some things accomplished.
Since it's now Wednesday, I can't remember the weekend. It was probably busy.

Enjoy your Thursday.

Wow ... you were seriously productive! Wish I could have said the same!

Robin said...

Sounds like a busy weekend to me! But what a wonderful feeling of accomplishment you must have now. I spent the last two days moving furniture to clean my carpets - so much work - but so worth it.
