Monday has always been my planning day for the week.
I like to do a general tidy up (weekly home blessing with the flylady), check the calendar for appointments and meetings, plan projects and create a menu. Nothing is set in stone but it feels good to have a general idea of the shape of the week.
On the calendar this week, there are two prayer meetings, a visit to the tulip fields with camera in hand, a walk with one friend and a coffee date with another.
At home I have painting on the agenda, weeding the flower beds, and a cupboard, or two ten, to tackle.
Daily exercise of some sort goes on the schedule too. Otherwise it goes by the wayside. And it’s a really sweet feeling when I get in some music practice and drawing for fun. I have a lovely new “How To Draw Flowers” book. I can hardly wait to get at it.
Housework in the morning – hobbies in the afternoon. And, if I can help it, only one day a week in town for errands, library and groceries. It’s a good plan. Which doesn’t always go as planned! But it’s the goal.
Here’s a new planning tool that I mentioned before – my menus on Pinterest. Simple and effective. All my online recipes conveniently in one place. Saving $ and less waste. It really works for me.
I love seeing in a glance what’s for supper.
Do you like to plan ahead for your week? Or do you go with the flow?
Hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day celebration yesterday.
I had the whole crew out – along with Andrew and Hyekoo by Skype –
It was a double celebration – Mother’s Day and James’ graduation.
and I can’t forget this little pumpkin too. Her second visit to Belfast.
Oh. my. heart! I am smitten. 🙂
In fact – we all are!
She’s the icing on the cake for sure. What a love-filled Mother’s day. I am so thankful!
