I feel better about the week now that I have looked back over it!
Nest wise the best news is baby Scarlett is doing well and gained weight and her big sister loves her! This is Harper saying goodnight that was just a little moment Lucy snapped and I just love!
So this was the best part of the week by far!
How I built up my home this week:
I did some re arranging and tidying up. I prettied up the front hallway with flowers...
I did a big shop at Aldi and on the way home went to a fruit and veggie shop that is kind of out of the way for me. But it was a big success! They have good prices but that day was amazing. I think maybe because the weather was really hot there were hardly any people around. Anyway I got the best prices I have seen in a long time. My car was full of baskets of tomatoes, cucumbers, you name it. I was thrilled.
Due to requests I made fruit and nut balls...
We kept half and the rest walked out the door! :)
We picked apples from our tree. It is only the second year so pretty good!
I made all the work lunches.
Andy cleaned the air conditioner filters and the whole yard.
I made a big batch of spaghetti sauce. This gave us two meals, some went into the freezer and some went to the girls as well.
I made bread and focaccia.
For Valentines Day I made a double batch of Chocolate Brownies as my present to Andy (and a card). I tied it up with a ribbon. He loved it!
I got pink orchids! These are so lovely and I hope I can keep them going!
I improved our preparedness too by sorting out our first aid supplies and getting a special cupboard set up for it all. Now we can find everything easily. Much better.
I also set up a little cupboard for my writing paper and pens etc. I love it! At least all in one place!
Because my week has been a bit interesting I haven't worked out my Vicky Challenge totals yet. I have my list so I will get to it on the weekend. It should be pretty reasonable this week!
I hope you had a good week! How did you get ahead, save or build up your home?
Next I am making a cake covered in plums inspired by Janine's. I have some dough coming along for some pizzas. Have a good weekend! xxx
