April – June

→ Try a new recipe.

Ravioli bake (May 3) This was really easy and we (except Joshua, who doesn’t care for ravioli) really liked it.

Slow Cooker Cowboy Stew (Apr 12) I used ground turkey, red potatoes with the skin still on, baby carrots, chopped onion and 8oz tomato sauce. It reminded me and Stephen of a hash. We both liked it while Maggie and Joshua thought it was alright.

California Burger (sauce) from the cookbook, Dinnertime Survival Guide (Apr 2) I made basic turkey burgers and the CA sauce. Stephen, Joshua, and I all really liked it! It makes a nice dip for fries, too, but it was outstanding on the burgers!

→ Sew something.

Four bibs (May 14) I sewed two small and two medium. :)

Fabric bread cozy (Apr 7) Turned out really nice. I used microfleece as the middle layer.

→ Go to a new zoo, park or museum.

Heritage Park (May 9) It’s not completely new, but Samuel had never been and the rest of us hadn’t been in years. We walked/biked the trails through the woods.

→ Visit a new city.

Indian Springs, GA (Apr 9) We went to a candy/ice cream shop and had homemade fudge and ice cream. We went to the GA state park afterwards.

→ Exercise.

Pilates (May 6, 7, 8, 10, 11) I really feel the burn in my shoulders and arms when I do the push-ups! It is a good burn, though. ;)

Yard work (Apr 13) We picked up all the sticks in the front and back and also weed whacked so we can cut the grass.

→ Try something new off the menu.

Cali Club sandwich from Denny’s (Apr 9) It was pretty good but I didn’t love the avocado.

→ Read a book.

A Scone to Die For (Apr 9) I loved it after getting past a few bothersome things at the beginning. :)

→ Grow something.

Wildflower assortment (Apr 2) Samuel and I planted the seeds in a medium size pot.

→ Watch a movie.

Nanny McFee (May 17)

Moana (Apr 5) Maggie, Samuel and I all liked it a lot! I enjoyed the music, the humor, and the animation. The “moral” of the story was lost on me, but I still enjoyed it, lol.

→ Do something spontaneous.

Take a blogging break (May 10) I decided mid-afternoon that I would post the next day and then take the summer off.

→ Make a craft or DIY.

→ Buy something handmade.

Pink floral light switch plate from Graceful Guessing (Apr 11)

All about molar pregnancies…against my will, but I still learned! (April 17)

→ Declutter & donate.

Four bags misc stuff (April 28)

→ Play a game.

Wii Party (Apr 10) all of us played on Maggie’s birthday, a lot of fun!

Putt-putt golf (Apr 9) At Indian Springs state park. It was the kids’ first time playing and the boys loved it…Maggie not so much, lol.

→ Set a goal and do it!
