Frugal...I used to make English muffins too. I haven't done it in years though. They were so much better than the store bought ones, IMHO.
I am happy to announce that I have completed painting the office bookcases and all of the backs are lined too. Next up in that area will be organizing the shelves. I'm NOT looking forward to that. However, I AM looking forward to having a wonderful "new" place to work when school resumes.
With the extra furniture being moved to DS' new house, we have so much space in our living room and we LOVE it! I still haven't put curtains on the big slider, but at this point it will have to wait until fall as there are no extra funds to purchase the drop cloths for what I want to do. I think it would look really neat to duplicate the curtains that cover the laundry area. I would put those on both sides and then in the middle section have lace panels so the nice sunshiney light can come in.
DD just HAD to have some glitter for one of her projects this morning so we ran over to Dollar Tree (so glad they came to our small town)so she could buy some. They had some great red kitchen towels that I purchased to make new covers for the pillows on the couch. Cheap fabric! So, another thing added to my "Goals" list. I tell you, as soon as I cross one thing off, I add another two or three or twenty. My mind just will not stop.
Still adding almost daily to the blog for my kiddos with my recipes, tips and tricks. DD keeps adding to the list of things that she wants me to put on there for them. It's actually turning out to be a neat project as now I will also have everything in one place to reference. Today, I made homemade granola bars so I took pictures of the entire process so that I can add it to the blog.
I also tried out a new recipe for a Boboli-type pizza crust. We will be having that for dinner tonight. It smells delicious so I hope that it tastes good as well. We love pizza, but would rather not have takeout or frozen.
I have only been off work for two weeks, and I've already finished reading all 4 books on my goals list, and another one to boot. I started #6 this afternoon. I'm definitely remembering to take my "me" time every day.
