The final list that I decided on for my weekend

1.  Eating consisted of:
Dessert, cheesecake dipped in chocolate with strawberries....Perfect!  Sandwiches choices: Steak or chicken with onions and turkey bacon.  A morning omelet with turkey bacon and cheese. 

2.  A bit of organizing in my corner
3.  Ironing, one pile of two complete
4.  Cleaned our outside refrigerator it was gross....it holds summer things to drink.  
5.  Another Thift store, where I found a mini food processor for $6!!  Now I can make my rib sauce!!  Ya, haven't been able to make that since my big food processor died, 2 years ago.
6.  Watched Netflix and listened to music
7.  Enjoyed time with my son after he got home from his trip Sunday.
8.  Baked some cookies with a bit of extra love!  Can you see the heart?
9.  Waited for my DH and daughter to get back from their trip.......now need to do laundry and get ready for the last two weeks of school!!

My weekend

Well hubby has taken youngest daughter and 3 of her girlfriends to Whistling Jack's Lodge for the weekend! My son went on a school trip to Seattle so I have the next few days to myself. HHHhhhmmmm, now to just decide what to do first of my list!

1. Make a list of what I want to do.....lol
2. Watch Take Home Chef on Netflix.....really what is NOT to like about Curtis Stone
3. Work in my messy corner doing some organizing, which really isn't work for me because I LOVE to do and make some ART
4. Package up a VERY special gift for a VERY special lady, to go out in the mail on Tuesday.  After she receives her present I will post.  It turned out so wonderful if I do say so myself!
5. Can't forget to eat, while everyone is gone!  Is it totally sad that I have to actually write this down?
6. Paint or collage on two wonderful wooden boxes I found today at Value Village.  An old 5x7 recipe box and a gift box that held 3 bottles of wine.....hhhmmmm, now to decide what to put on them.  I do believe that the wine box is going to be the new home for some of my special paints, not sure about the 5x7 box.
7. Start the book I have picked out...oh wait, decide which book I want to read first out of two, then start it.
8. Start my art journal
9. Organize some photos so I can get myself in gear to make pages
10. Be sure to eat so I can actually NOT have a headache!
11.  ooooo, maybe I'll go to another Thrift store tomorrow?
12. do a very small amount of chores

What are you doing this weekend?

What I am looking forward to....

FINALLY a bit of warmer weather here in Spokane!  I have so needed it.  April was the coldest on record since the 1920's!  I tell you what it leaves you not motivated to do much of anything. 

My one and only scrapbook project done so far this year.....ack.  I know hard for me to even believe.  I've had this on my heart for sometime, helps me to think of warmer days and special memories!   A 5x7 canvas of my soon to be 18 year old son, he was 2 years old here.  His hair is darker now.  It was a good day at the beach, not a day I soon will forget.
 What I am looking forward to this summer.......Thank you Leslie for the idea!

1. My oldest daughter and my youngest grandson coming for a visit in 39 days.
2.  Having my teenagers home for the summer.  Trying to hold onto each minute of time with them.
3.  Celebrating my son's 18th birthday...it happens so fast?  Again, holding tight to every minute with him.
4.  Celebrating my Grandson's first birthday!  I have 5 Grandchildren and this will be the first birthday I have been able to celebrate with one of them.  So excited!
5.  She Had Three Hearts with Christy Tomlinson, starts May 23!  I know not quite summer but it is close enough.  This class was given to me as a gift and I am so looking forward to it.
6.  Soul Restoration 2, starts June 6.  Another special gift from a friend.  Thank you Kathy!
7.  The Summer of Color class, starts June 6 check it out here.  Whats not to like when it is FREE!
8.  Having no daily agenda
9.  Rain storms, maybe some thunder too.
10.  Gardening.  It has taken me over a  year to find my joy in this again.  We have worked so hard as a family, the last couple of years, to make our gardens stress free.  It is paying off this spring!  It is all beautiful. 
11.  The excitement of Marching Band season.  It is always so LONG, but it is going to be a special year for many reasons.  I can't share them right now but when I can I will post!
13.  Excitement of my son's senior portraits getting done......excuse me....again, it goes to fast!!
14.  Scrapbooking, needing to get on a roll again and get stuff done.
