Weekly Plan and Menu's 4/20-4/28

Last week my baby, Abigail turned four. Boo-hoo, my baby is growing up too fast! We had a great party though. My mom and brother came up from Oklahoma and we took all the kids to the circus. We then came straight home from that and got ready for a few more friends who were coming over to join us for hamburgers and hotdogs. Thankfully the weather cooperated and we were able to grill outside for that. I brought out her birthday cake and she loved it when we sang happy birthday to her. Abby had decided on Friday that she wanted to change from a Spongebob cake to a "pink heart cake with purple on it". That was easier so I went with it!

With all the snow and rain we've been having lately, I'm a little behind on my gardening. I looked up the weather and it looks like it's going to be a great week for sunshiny gardening! So hopefully this week I can catch up a little bit in this area. Maybe if I'm lucky I'll have pictures on Friday for my gardening blog entry. My camera has been in Oklahoma for a couple of weeks (in case you didn't notice the lack of pictures) but thankfully my mom brought it back to me yesterday so I'll be able to blog more about things that we need pictures of.

It looks like it will be a busy week. I keep thinking that one of these weeks will slow down a little, but it seems like there is always a lot to do that needs to be done as soon as possible. So here is the schedule for the week. To-do items in black, dinner/menu items in red.


Morning routine
Weekly shopping trip
Pictures of thrifting for blog
pickup free Redbox movie
clean laundry room
Call Jess to confirm hair appt.
check ironing
Picture project pictures and blog post

Mon-I had to put off the trip to town until tomorrow or Wednesday. My brother in law is going to have gall bladder surgery and they have given me their youngest to watch. That makes two four year olds in the house! I might not get as much done the next couple of days, but it should make for some great pictures of Abby and her cousin.

Tue- Today was a bit hectic as well, but I got to town to pick up the groceries we needed (from yesterday). I didn't make it into the garden, but I guess I can spend a bit longer there on Friday to make up for it and I'll plan on making those reunion calls Wednesday or Thursday evening.
