Ugh. Well my kitchen is clean. But it’s like eleven o’clock. Last summer I read a post about building habits and the author would piggy back a task onto something that would happen no matter what. For example, she wanted to start the habit of cleaning her kitchen and dishes... Continue reading

Okay my first serious meal plan of this year! It’s no secret that I love meal planning. When I first started doing it when we were completely broke, it really helped me not waste money or food and really helped me not get so discouraged about things. Even though it... Continue reading

Soo today I had what is hopefully my last eye surgery unless I get another detached retina! We had to be in Jackson at 5:30 this morning and that was rough. But I feel like everything went smoothly and on time. We were back home by lunchtime and pretty much... Continue reading

I wrote this a couple of days ago and I just realized I never published it. Oops! Last Friday it snowed in Mississippi! It snowed a lot, not like how in the past the weather reporters would tell us it was going to snow and then it basically sprinkled down... Continue reading

This past weekend I participated in a Christmas market downtown Hattiesburg at the train depot. I had the BEST time. Goodness it was a lot of work but it was so fun to see other people walking around and getting to chat with different folks. Not to mention that we... Continue reading

So lately I've been trying to do some different recipes, mainly to add some variety for me to eat. After a while life can become monotonous and eating habits can get stuck in a rut. I was looking through my recipe books and the recur for meatballs caught my eye.... Continue reading

So now that Kevin is off at work and not home for supper, I get to expand my meal plan and make dishes that he doesn't really care for. Which is super exciting to me! And with it getting colder that means soups!! I'm also taking another step and planning... Continue reading

Whenever Kevin leaves to go on a new hitch, it always feels like a new beginning for me to get stuff done around the house. I mean, it may be that I am trying to fill my time that I would have otherwise spent with Kevin but it also gives... Continue reading

This past week I've been trying something different. We hardly ever sit at our dinner table for meals but I want to change that. Sitting on the couch worked for us when it was just the two of us, Kevin and me, but I don't want to deal with the... Continue reading

Ok so first of all, wow. Tomorrow is November already! Second, I now have one month of meal planning under my belt and I'm hooked. Around three or four in the afternoon I just read my little list of what to eat that day and I go ahead and get... Continue reading

So I started this week off without a meal plan and Tuesday night was a disaster! I couldn't think of anything at all to cook! I have been doing this for just almost a month now and I already need it! So I sat down today and jotted one down... Continue reading

I’ve been in the process of making things lately. Mainly right now I have been working on a trio of memory quilts for a friend. I’m using shirts that belonged to her grandfather that her grandmother saved. She lives on the coast so she mailed the shirts to me. When... Continue reading
