A Long Weekend

I hope everyone is enjoying their Labor Day!

For us it's definitely a rainy one as what is left of Lee makes its way across the state. The rain is definitely needed as during the entire month of August rain only fell on my house twice, and both times it was very short lived. My plants are pretty darn happy this morning!

As I settled in this morning with my coffee, I realized that I never blogged yesterday, even though I meant to! I'd like to say that it was because I was SO busy getting SO much accomplished, but that's not really the case. I did some grocery shopping, read the paper, drank some coffee, did a bit of cleaning up around the house, made some deliveries...... and that's about it. I vegged in front of the tv, perusing cook books, played around on the computer and napped on the couch. Not what I'd call a productive day! :-(

However, today is going to be different! I've got a couple of posts to get up (including the grocery shopping from yesterday) and I am planning to get some "Once a Month Cooking" done. Now, I wish I was the type that was so organized that I had a month's worth of menus planned and will get them all cooked today, but that is honestly not the case. Basically, I will make up a bunch of browned ground beef and freeze it individually for use throughout the month. I'm also making a Pampered Chef 30 Minute chicken (if that darn chicken ever thaws out!), and also doing a bunch of chicken in the crockpot! These will provide the base for most of our dinners this month. I also plan to do some muffins and maybe some blueberry bread.

I'd also like to make sigificant progress in getting my home office in order. Right now, you can barely walk through it and that's just ridiculous!!!!! (I really should have done that yesterday!)

Anyway, I hope y'all have a fun and productive Labor Day --- and if you're grilling out, have something yummy for me --- with all the rain from Lee, a cookout is NOT an option here today!


  1. No cookout for us either, not til next spring! We need a piece for our BBQ and this is just not the time of year to find one. Oh well, it's cold and rainy today (yes cold!) so I'm working away inside rather than out.

  2. Cold? Wow. For me, I'm just kind of tickled that I don't have to run the AC --- Lee's rains have cooled things off significantly!
