Some days I am so Martha!

Stewart that is. LOL! This weekend, I was SO busy!! I cannot wait until Hubby is out of the wheelchair. Update: he is doing very well and the dr is very please with how Hubby's feet are healing, but wants him to stay off of them for a while longer.

So I have to do EVERYTHING! Saturday, I went to the library to get some books and dvds...for FREE. LOL! Then, just for me, I went to Penney's and bought some new clothes. It was just time. I work in a corporate office and raggedy clothes just won't cut it. But everything was on sale and I had a coupon.

Then to the grocery store, where everything I bought was on sale and I had coupons for most of it. It was SO hot on Saturday, I was really glad to get home and stay in for the evening. We watched a DVD, and had beef stroganoff for dinner. (Oh, while relaxing, I washed all our bed linens and remade the bed. LOL!)

I intended to relax on Sunday, since I thought everything was done. Then I got a wild hair, pulled out my sewing machine and altered 4 pairs of pants that I have intended to do forever.

I also baked a loaf of raisin bread in the breadmaker. It is delish!








Then I baked 2 loaves of Cranberry Almond bread....made from scratch. It also is delish!









Made chicken teriyaki for dinner, with rice and cauliflower. Also delish!







Then, I watered all of Hubby's plants...with a 5 gallon bucket, since we are on the second floor and do not have a water hose.....

I was so tired from the weekend, that I was glad to go back to work and get some rest, today!!

You really have turned into Martha. I was tired just from reading everything that you did. And the deck looks great and so did all the food. You definitely need a rest after that weekend.

I have those bursts once a year or so :-)
Sometimes I cook on Sunday, does that count?
That all looked sooooooooooooo good.

Keep healing, hubby.

Oh, SonyaAnn and Helene, my entire family says that I am "very Martha." LOL! I love to cook, sew, do crafts and garden. I generally just don't want to do everything on the same day. LOL! Or interspersed with cleaning and laundry.

Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention that I did 2 loads of laundry on Sunday and cleaned the kitchen after dinner.

Hey there...love that restful weekend you had!! We should now call you Martha Frances!!LOL

My sister used to say the exact same thing, "I have to go to work to get any rest!"

Relaxing?! Is that how you relax? By doing ALL those chores while you're trying to relax? :-)

Sounds like like shopping went well. I'm NOT ashamed to say I love a bargain & milk the hell out of coupons. Dare I say I'm a humble man!

P-L-E-A-S-E, I beg of you, don't show any more food that I CAN'T eat! It looks very yum.

Glad the band (as in hus) is doing better. Be well.

Hi, A.Maria and C.Louis! Thanks for stopping by!

A.Marie, the chicken was delish! I will post my "secret" recipe for you.

Frances said...

Oh, and C.Louis, sorry I tempted your tast buds. Does that mean I should not post pics of what I cook for Hubby for Father's Day??

Ha! I can so relate! My relaxing weekend always includes some laundry and cooking, maybe some sewing or yard work. Nice blog, will follow.
