Menu Plan Monday and what I’ve been working on…

Hope you are all settling nicely into fall. It’s hot here AGAIN so it doesn't really feel like fall. I miss the rainy days of last week! We had fun jumping in puddles and making potato cheese soup and sipping tea…now it’s back to shorts, flip flops, and air conditioning. I just want fall to commit already!


This week is packed as usual so our menu is filled with EASY tasty things!

 Monday: Salmon w/ cilantro butter served with lemon pasta and salad

Tuesday: Parmesan Dijon Chicken w/ broccoli and roasted potatoes

Wednesday: Homemade Pizza, salad

Thursday: Breakfast for dinner! Egg scramble, with toast and orange slices

Friday: softball…take out…Subway perhaps?

Saturday: friends birthday dinner

Sunday: Have friends over for Sunday dinner???

Last week, in my birthday post I had BIG ambitions for lots of personal sewing. And while I did get a few pretty things made, I didn’t get to cross off everything. Oh well. They’ll be waiting for me the next time it decides to rain. Here is what I did manage to get done…

A Fall-y tea-towel apron for all that baking I plan on doing

(excuse the really lame self portrait…)



A ruffley Bible Cover… I love it. Made my OLD NIV Study Bible feel new again!


Halloween table runner and throw pillows





I also made this gathered clutch wristlet to give my friend for her 30th birthday.
