Yesterday ended up being a fabulous day...today, as well, is going much better! Two of my kids ended up being grounded (from friends and iPod Touch) all day Monday and Tuesday. I think it worked! They are little dolls today.
Yesterday I worked super hard on my homeschool schedule for the year. I wrapped that up this morning and was able to pack it away until Monday evening. Today, I am working on wrapping up my recipe project. I am only keeping a couple of favorite cookbooks. I am going through my cookbook collection and typing up my favorite recipes out of each book and then donating that book. In the past I have typed my recipes up in Word...but now I am typing them up in Excel and am like that so much better! That way I can have my little tabs at the bottom for my different categories: Breakfast, Beverages, etc... I am hoping to wrap this up soon so that I can print out my cookbook and have all my favorite recipes super handy. I'm thinking it will make my menu planning so much more pleasant!
I was able to do some sewing last week...I am trying to come up with a fabulous patched fabric skirt. I want it to look random and casual. It's hard to make a random and casual skirt! Who'd have thought. I'll keep working on it. The photo up top is of a little scrappy flower pin that I sold on Etsy last week.
