Celebrating Spring Activities

My hard drive is shot, so computer is catch as catch can for now!

We're happily celebrating the arrival of SPRING.  I'm just doing a little activity each day with James.  Well, Leland is here too, but not participating in quite the same way.

For the week:
  • Monday- Leave out fuzz and yarn bits for the birds to pick up and make cozy nests.
  • Tuesday- Make Angel Food Cake and save the shell from all those eggs (12 egg whites!) to make these really neat candles
  • Wednesday- Use a few of the cleaned out shells for flower vases.
  • Thursday- Dye eggs, Celebrate the equinox with a big dinner and family.
  • Friday- Egg hunt
  • Saturday- Dinner at a friends house
  • Sunday- Renaissance Festival

Makin' Menus

Most Mondays James visits his Grandma for a couple hours in the evenings, giving Michael and I a chance to do some planning (funny how with two kids, if we just have the baby with us it feels almost like kid-free time). Anyhow, I always forget to plan something easy so I don't have to focus on dinner, but this week I already have the soup and the cooked ham in the fridge, so dinner tonight should work well.

  • Monday- Pumpkin soup, Ham Slices, Cut up veggies
  • Tuesday- Quiche, Salad
  • Wednesday- Roast Chicken, Salad, Potatoes
  • Thursday- Chicken Eggplant Tomato Stuff, Rice
  • Friday- Chicken Soup
  • Saturday- Pork chops, apples, green beans, Rice
  • Sunday- BBQ Chicken Pizza, cut up veggies

  • Breakfasts- Banana Muffins, Oatmeal, Cereal, Egg veggie scramble, Dutch Baby on Sunday
  • Lunches- Left-overs, Tuna Salad sandwiches, Salad with Chicken on top
  • Snacks- Celery w/peanut butter, Yogurt with jam, fruit

Other Tasks- Make Yogurt (Organic milk is on sale this week) Bake muffins, Friday make a lasagna to parcel out and send to work with M.
