Planning Monday

On my to-do list: 

1) Continue with yard work--trim bushes in front yard and mow grass. 
2) Plan and implement some freezer cooking. It's been a long time since I spent some time stocking my freezer. Looking forward to it--having foods ready is such a time-saver!
3) Get hair cut. Again-- long overdue. :-)
4) Clean trash cans.
5) Start planning some fun kid activities for the summer.
6) Bathe dog.

What's on your to-do list this week?

On my menu plan:

* scrambled eggs with veggies (4x)
* scrambled eggs; sausage links (2x)

* leftovers from supper or
* chicken and rice salad-- thrown together using whatever I have on hand kind of  like this beef pilaf salad.
* hard-boiled eggs, cheese, veggies
* cucumber slices with cream cheese, tuna, veggies
* tuna salad lettuce wraps

Supper: Most meals will also include at least one vegetable and/ or a salad.
1) Southwestern lentils (crockpot)
2) Rotisserie-style chicken (crockpot), sweet potatoes
3) Meeting: Sloppy Joes
4) Stir-fry, rice
5) Chicken and veggie skewers (grill), rice
6) Green salad with shrimp

Snacks: We don't typically eat fruit with our meals so it makes for a great snack!
* raspberries, yogurt (2x)
* fruit smoothies (2x)
* sliced peaches, small handful of nuts
* chocolate peanut butter banana smoothies 

What are your favorite summer foods?

To ponder: 

" Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and early loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. bear with each other and forgive whatever  grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues, put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. "  Colossians 3: 12-14.

Blessings to you in the week ahead!

Trimming bushes in on my list also. Not sure if I will get it done with the kids and the heat. Have a great week!

We've been doing some yard work. Our flower bed was looking kind of 'jungly', so we've been weeding and mulching and all that fun stuff! It's looking a lot better now. At least I'm not afraid of a snake biting my foot! :)

I really like the verses you posted this true!

I'm going to have to check out the organizing junkie blog. I don't think I've seen it before.

Talk to you later. :)
