I am trying to do better about not planning for 14 individual meals. We have leftovers most of the time. Sometimes we just want a salad or a bowl of cereal.. I mean, we are 4 days into our new "plan" and I've only made the southwest pasta dish. We grilled out chicken, pork, burgers and hot dogs the night of Madison's party so that has lasted us a couple of days. With dance and choir 3 days a week, I need to utilize my crock pot 2 or 3 of those days, or we will eat at church on choir night. Trying to get this schedule all figured out ;)
I did not include the recipe links but a quick Pinterest search will give you many choices!

We've been super busy lately working in the yard..
For some reason, we thought this little jutted out spot was a good idea 🤷🏻♀️ I had a rose planted there, but on a whim, pulled the rose up and straightened the rocks out. Looks so much better and easier to mow the grass, too.
We never did anything under the deck since that's where the dogs stayed. They liked the cool dirt and shade.
Weed mat down, mulched and rock border added!
Also finished up the border at the crawl space door. It had originally just connected to the fence.
Pulled up the dying tomato plants and planted 12 broccoli plants. I'm hoping it isn't too hot.. I've never planted them before.. half of them look really good still and it's been a week.
We used to have a flower garden at the road here. We never put weed barrier mat down and just never maintained it, so we pulled it up a while back. I hate that cable box so I'd been toying with the idea of replanting stuff to hide it. The garden on the other side is our neighbors.
A few hours later, weed mat down, some evergreen mini cypress and some ornamental perennial grasses. The cypresses will grow 3x6 or s, so hopefully that box will be hidden. Yes, I meant to plant the lower right one like that. Unfortunately, that cable wires are not 3' underground, but barely skim the surface of the grass 🙄😑
Alan pressure washed the sidewalk and gutters while I worked on the garden above.

It's been a while. I really contemplated quitting blogging. I enjoy blogging and keeping our friends and family updated on our lives and our girls and house stuff and giving menu and blog ideas... but I get in a rut sometimes...nd then I get online this morning to catch up on blogs and just open my publisher to find that quite a few of our blogs have over 400 views!!! Holy moly! Here we go. I love comments and feedback so fire away ;)
