This seems an appropriate piece of artwork for the week of Thanksgiving. I anticipate there will be lots of dishwashing going on in our homes over the next four or five days! LOL!
Due to a variety of circumstances, we’re going to be home this year with just the three of us for Thanksgiving. We’ve all agreed to scale back our expectations for the actual feast. To tell the truth, we’re all kind of tired for various reasons. We decided that rather than spend days with the three of us devoting multiple hours each day preparing for one meal for two people, we would utilize many shortcuts and simplifications. Caroline’s one request was her favorite stuffing that my mom started making when I was a girl and we still make in our family – Midwest Sausage Stuffing.
I thought about not putting up a simple living post this week since I’m not sure what other people have going on. But I decided I would suggest one goal this week. In fact, it might even overlap with your holiday preparations so you get your holiday things done and you can also share your goal and maybe encourage someone else to jump in!
My goal this week is to keep working through my recipes stash that I started with last week’s goals. I’m cleaning out so many accumulated recipes, pages ripped from magazines, printouts from online, etc. I made a really good start last week and want to keep going.
Do you have a homemaking goal this week? Please share it in the comments! If you need inspiration, you can find it in A Quiet Simple Life Planner & Guidebook.
