Rob keeps asking me why I haven't posted anything recently. I think part of the reason is that I tend to live a groundhog day. Every Day. I'm certainly not complaining. I fully consider it a luxury and privilege that I can stay home full-time.
My days always include: laundry, running the dishwasher at least three times, helping with homework, carpooling to sports, packing lunches, making dinners, the usual. I'm not sure I have much to share that's worth sharing.
Plus, I've been introduced to Pinterest. I'm fully blaming my sister-in-law. She introduced me to this complete time-absorbing activity. And, it's made me discontent. All of a sudden I've decided that Rob needs a hobby room, I need a first-floor laundry, our closets need organized, and I need to decorate seasonally.
So, for the past few weeks, I've been dreaming. Dreaming of a new kitchen. Dreaming of organized closets.
For now, I'll continue to plan. To steal pinecones from my neighbor's yard. To spend the minimum amount of money to organize and beautify our house. And, I'm continuing to cook. Tonight is this luscious pork roast [and some yukon golds that are begging to become mashed potatoes].
|the very simple marinade of: honey, beer, onions, and mustard|
|my front window "tablescape"|
|the pilfered pinecones, shhhhh.....|
|the closet where I'd like my washer and dryer to live|
|the coat closet that desperately needs organization|
I'll also take pictures of the finished pork and mashed potatoes - it's gonna be good.
