Intentions for the Week- Week 44 of 2020

It’s MONDAY! We made it to another week. This weekend was restorative! I got a bunch of stuff done around the house including:

  • organizing Cooper’s closet
  • cleaning out our utensil drawer & kitchen tool drawer
  • did gardening
  • decorated the mantle for Halloween (I need to take photos!)
  • got to ground zero with laundry (YAY)
  • cleaned out the freezer

oh and I did MEAL PREP!

My Everyday Life Week 43

Here’s what this past week looked like- My Everyday Life Week 43

Taking him for errands after school. He’s getting TALL.

Added one of my Mom’s paintings (she bought) in my kitchen makes me happy. I’m also using the ceramic bowl she made in 1977 (it’s dated!) for my garlic.

On the agenda this weekend.

Proud plant Mama! I can’t wait to see what this looks like this time next year. 

Purple morning.
