|Just a funny Annabelle picture|
Since my last post on trying to make lists and get more done, I have to say life has been going better. I'm not where I want to be, but I have managed to get a few more things checked off my list. Since I gave up ebaying, I no longer feel the urgency to check the thrift stores several times a week.
I'm trying to keep my 'leaving the house" days to a minimum. My goal is to only leave two times a week on a normal week. I feel much more relaxed and can get so much more done on days that I can stay home all day.
I made zucchini muffins this morning using this recipe: (I hope you can enlarge it if interested)
I made six jumbo muffins and two miniature bundt cakes. I only have two of the bundt cake pans, but hope to get a few more soon. These make nice little gifts, especially for single people or couples.
Notice this dish towel. It's one I embroidered for my grandmother several years ago. After she died, it was returned to me.... unused.... even though I had told her to please use it.
Once it was returned to me, I thought how silly for us to make pretty things, but never use them. I have put the towel to good use and think of her when I pull this one from the drawer. That's another thing I want to do for myself; embroider more pretty dish towels. I will enjoy them and I know my grandchildren will like them when they visit.

Speaking of grandchildren, here they are in a picture we took at Chandler's preschool graduation in May. (He's the cute guy in the necktie) Annabelle (in green dress) was here visiting with her mom from TN, so it was a rare occasion to get a photo of all my grand's in one photo.
It's been a great summer so far! I hope yours is going well too.
