It’s Good Friday, Passover, and Tax Day! How was your week? Mine went by quickly and it was a bit crazy!
I don’t have a photo of this but we made the last college payment of sophomore year for our twins! Halfway through!
My car has been having some issues this year. I guess that is what happens when you drive a 10 year old car. There is a local coffee shop across the street from the mechanic and I enjoyed sitting outside and having an afternoon coffee.
Tom told me we were out of something and I said to write me a note because I am the kind of person that has to write everything down. This is the “note” he wrote me:
I am so proud that I have improved my food waste situation. I have worked really hard to use up what we have and to do a better job planning. I was happy to see the empty-ish fridge as a result of this!
I also learned how valuable my freezer is during the pandemic and it is an important part of not wasting food. I cleaned it out and restocked it during my break.
We love our rain chain, as you may know if you are a regular reader, but the barrell beneath is in bad shape.
We have always admired these when we see them at local patios and different establishments and finally got one!
We don’t know exactly what plants to use yet.
Wednesday night, tornado sirens starting going off around 8:00 and lasted until after 9:00. Ugh! It’s tornado season in this area and it’s very scary.
And, surprise of all surprises…school got cancelled for our entire district yesterday because some schools had no power or bus routes were impassable.
So, I was already up and going my routine when I found out and decided to run to Kroger and Costco as those were things I was going to have to do on the weekend.
If you watch Summer House on Bravo…look what Kroger had!
And, Truly makes a flavored vodka now!
Costco is selling bags to make “walking tacos”!
I had a lot of fun just leisurely wandering the aisles.
When I got home I did some chores and then I made a lunch of cheese, little peppers, pickles, and chicken, buffalo dip, ranch, and celery. Yum! This would be too high maintenance to take to school!
I did put out a few Easter touches just in the nick of time:
I spent my afternoon enjoying the gorgeous sunshine!
This is really cute so far – if you like DIY shows and chick lit you might like it.
What were your favorites this week? I can’t wait to hear and to read about everyone elses’!
