What We're Eating 3/12/12-3/18/12

We had a pretty low-key week last week with not much on the calendar. Apart from the normal schedule of school and story time at the library, Isaac and I took a trip to Walmart, we signed Charlie up for t-ball and then we spent the majority of the weekend at home (even though I was dying to get out of here) so Chris could boil sap to make more maple syrup. (We unfortunately have nothing to show for all of the boiling Chris did on Sunday because it was so windy that his pot was knocked over and spilled everything inside. Horrible!)

The only exciting thing that happened last week (exciting to me, anyway) was that I did a lot of organizing and some spring cleaning. I cleaned out and rearranged my baking cabinet and several other kitchen cabinets (so excited about the new stands I got to hold all of my pans - LOVE them!), my junk drawer and utensil drawer, the craft/game closet (finally found the bag of Campbell's Labels for Education and box tops that I'd been looking for over the past two weeks), the bathroom cabinets and the rack going down to our basement. I wish I had before and after pictures - what a difference! I also washed the kitchen floor, washed windows and picture frames and cleaned the ceiling fan and lights in the bedrooms. I tossed some junk, re-purposed some items and put a few things aside for if we ever hold the yard sale we've been talking about for a few years now. What a freeing feeling! I have a few more projects in mind for this week. ;)
