Happy Monday evening! I hope you had a lovely Memorial Day weekend whether it was at home or somewhere else. We were at home all weekend. (Shocking, I know, since our state is still locked down until June 12.) We made the most of it and took care of many projects around the house. We’ve been doing a lot of little things to make being home more pleasant such as buying a white trellis to grow morning glories, some new birdfeeders and feed type to attract different birds, etc. Since we are in and around our home so much, we have put extra money into small things that make a difference in our day to day lives.
I’ve mentioned organizing the basement so many times in these weekly goals and we made massive progress in that area this weekend. And I do mean massive. The end is in sight and feasible to be done with just an hour or two more down there. This is a huge load of my mind.
My other recent task has been ordering things we need since shopping isn’t an option. Shorts for Caroline, shirts for David, books for me, etc. Anything we can’t purchase locally (because everything is closed) and will need in the next seven or eight months, I’ve been ordering. I’ve got a list a mile long of things to take care of and am working my way through it. I’m not optimistic at all about the future and truly do see this as a lull. If I’m wrong, I’ll simply have taken care of things a few months before I usually do. It’s all stuff we need to deal with and then I can be done with it.
So my goals for this week? I haven’t even stopped to think about them until this minute.
Goal 1 – Ordering things we need. I’m going to keep working through this list.
Goal 2 – Scheduling things we need to get done. We need to get some things taken care of, request quotes, etc. I’d like to work through this list as well.
Goal 3 – Spend a lot of time working on content and products for this site.
How are you doing in your homemaking? I hope well. Please leave a comment and share what you are working on. Maybe you will inspire someone else or give someone a fresh idea!
