February! Hi there, you came fast. Your buddy, January, did a fantastic job, from the weather to the incredible vibes of productivity. Let’s just say you have a challenge ahead and Jan will likely be a difficult act to follow! ;)
So, I’ve been looking for a new way to store my recipes for awhile. I used to type and print them and then tape or paste them onto index cards. I kept the cards in a 4×6 photo album. But because I have been trying so many new recipes lately, and my collection of recipes has grown significantly, I have wanted an easier way to keep the recipes. Basically, I don’t want to have to do so much work! And I’ve decided to simply use a three-ring binder and just stick the recipes I’ve printed online in the there after hole punching them. I asked Maggie to help me design a cover for my binder and I love how it turned out!
I’ve been using some super cute online printable calendars since sometime last year and this year, so far, I’m devoting them to meal planning. I have the current month on my refrigerator and after I make up the week’s meal plan on my blog, I write the dinners on the calendar. I’ve decided to keep them in my recipe binder in plastic sleeves afterward. I think it’ll be neat to look back at when the year is ending.
We went to a thrift store after picking Stephen up from work a few days ago and I was able to find a few tops for Elizabeth. She has grown out of everything lately! She’s weighing 21.6lbs currently at seven months. The shirts are by Carter’s and The Children’s Place, which I probably wouldn’t buy were they not secondhand because the price tag tends to be high unless there is a really good sale!
Yay! Our bathroom and master bedroom were taken care of on Sunday. Mold killed and fresh paint applied. ^_^ We’re getting a new stove this morning. It’s being delivered sometime before noon.
I took the kids to Zoo Atlanta yesterday. The weather was AMAZING! Elizabeth was content and super pleased to be outside for so long which made the whole experience really positive.
I’m reading a new book called Smugglers and Scones and I’m really enjoying it. I ordered it on Amazon for my Kindle after reading a great review on Katie’s Cottage Books the other night.
How’s your week going?
