Good morning, friends!
Hope you have a great Monday and a blessed week!
Decluttering and getting ready for a yard sale are on my agenda this week. What are your plans?
56 degrees and a little rainy this morning for our 5K. Glad I didn’t pick today for my first half! Admire those who are running it, though.
I think that I’ll run, come home, take a hot shower, and get back in my pajamas and drink coffee. Put some soup on in the crock pot. And a nap will definitely be in order!
Y’all have a great Saturday!
So I’m recovering from my Alabama trip – had to go to physical therapy for my back today and it’s feeling much better.
Have a race on Saturday – 5k…not ready for a half marathon just yet, but hoping to do one in December.
Really hoping to be be back to our “normal” next week. FYI, one can have a laundry schedule for years and leave for three days and it’s like it never existed. Just saying. 😳
Y’all have a great night! I’m going to put heat on my back as instructed.
This is the recipe I’ll be using tonight to make homemade pizza. 🙂
from Lynn Pridgen 🙂
Mix 1 cup flour, seasoning, salt, pepper and yeast together in mixer bowl. Add hot water and oil and mix on low for 3 minutes.
Add additional 1 1/2 – 2 cups flour and use dough hook to mix. Mix on low until well mixed and dough starts to pull away from side of the bowl.
Remove hook and cover; let stand for 10 minutes.
Grease cookie sheet or pizza pan, place dough on pan and spread to edges. Cover and let rise 30 minutes.
Prick with fork all over, brush with olive oil, and bake at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes until lightly brown.
If using for pizza…

Something that needs addressing periodically…
Good Monday morning!
So we’re just going to jump right in and start paving the way to an organized, well-run household. Having talked to many women over the past few years about what household chore most often overwhelms them, I have learned that laundry is a problem for many people. In fact, there are people whose laundry pile could be measured and it would be taller than they are. They could get lost in the laundry pile and not be found for days. Did you know that there are people who don’t do their laundry for weeks at a time? That spend entire weekends “catching up” with the laundry monster and not enjoying their days off? Well, I am here to help you not only catch up with him (the laundry monster has to be male, after all), but to kick him in his rear end and defeat him once…

Guess what? It’s still raining!!
I’m “recovering” from my quick (as in days), long (as in miles) trip to Alabama with my mom. It was the first road trip we’d taken – just us – in a long time and it was great to spend time with her. Driving in the pouring rain – both ways and the whole time we were there – not so much. But we survived though I was almost in tears because my back was hurting so bad by the time we got home. (Yes, Karen, I will be calling you for PT this week.)
I’m sitting here watching Food Network and menu planning for next week. I love menu planning. I’m still trying to use up the stuff in my stocked freezer and pantry. And, of course, using my slow cooker as often as possible.
This is what I have so far:
Tonight: Homemade Pizzas
Sunday: Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas Tacos, Mexican Rice, Homemade Refried Beans
Monday: Alice Springs Chicken, Roasted Parmesan Potatoes, Stuffed Zucchini
Wednesday: Beef Stroganoff, Buttered Egg Noodles, Green Beans
Thursday: Shepherd’s Pie (This is for me. If they don’t like it, the rest of them can have leftovers.) 🙂
Friday: Grilled Steaks, Baked Potatoes, Salad
Saturday: Steak Salad, Twice-baked Potatoes or any other leftovers anyone wants to finish off 🙂
Y’all have a great Saturday! I’m off to have some lunch.
Schedules work for me. Having a schedule is how I survived working full-time with two toddlers at home. Schedules kept me sane when I homeschooled for ten years. Schedules give me a sense of control or focus for my days. The dictionary defines “schedule” as follows:
Yummy breakfast: omelet with ham, cheese and spinach and a slice of toasted homemade sourdough bread. Yum!
