After a weekend of the family home and taking care of a sick baby, we had a lovely weekend but I am so far behind. My little SuperBowl party was lovely and the boys had a dessert eating contest starting with my football brownies and let’s just say, they challenged each other to who could make the biggest and boldest dessert. At one point, there was a brownie stacked under a piece of apple pie and topped with ice cream, icing, sprinkles and chocolate sauce. Yuck!!
Although the festivities are great, I always feel like I am starting at square one. The house is a wreck, the laundry is piled up and my poor little blog is totally neglected. Teaching four college classes doesn’t help either… so here we are on Wednesday with my Monday post… I may be organized but I cannot stand up against the hurricane of three grown men, two dogs, a baby and a house full of friends, family and cooking food all weekend. Oh well, so where are we.
This week, I have to make my special Valentine’s treats.
I am still working on the baby’s Easter outfit and hope to get those curtains hemmed and start on the bench cushion.
We have been stove hunting and researching. We found a restaurant quality stove but don't know if I want to do the modifications to the kitchen to make it work. I have not finished meeting with the kitchen designer but hopefully will finish that step in the next two weeks.
Yard work has started on February first so I do have to work in the yard cleaning up. The front yard is first along with all the roses need to be trimmed. This weekend, I trimmed roses in the snow last Saturday.
