Monday in May


  • Going somewhere for Memorial Day weekend? Do you have your plans finalized, reservations made, tickets purchased, budget adjusted?

  • Charge cameras, cell phones, MP3 players if needed

  • Need to do any battery sorting, organizing and inventory of your battery supplies? I just struggled to find my D batteries for a flashlight last night. After spending only 5 minutes straightening my junk drawer, all my D and AAA and AA batteries are now all nicely organized and accessible.

  • Make menu plans and create grocery list for the week.

  • Need to take any vitamins today?

  • It's the rainy season (at least here in Seattle). Do you have umbrellas, windbreakers, and rain boots handy?


We have a sunny day, so I'm using it to wash my car. It doesn't take me too long, so I'll have time to give the dashboard and inside windows a quick wipe down. I'm pretty good at taking trash out of my car every time I exit it, so I don't have much cleanup to do on the interior.

Tomorrow when I go out to dinner, I'll be driving myself in a nice clean car. I try to take good care of it as it's new and cost me hard-earned money to buy. I want to appreciate my possessions and take respectful care of them.

LOVELY BLOGS: Decor to Adore

This blog is by an interior designer. I love that her name has "Laura Ingalls" as part of it! She shares her finds, currently including a wee tea pot, vintage postcards, a beautiful bedroom from an HGTV episode, and pictures of the decor she's working on currently for her job.

LOVELY MOVIES: Letters to Juliet

I'm thoroughly looking forward to this romantic chick-flick. I loved Amanda Seyfreid in "Mamma Mia," and I'm eager to see the Italian scenery. This is a perfect movie to see on Saturday afternoon with my sister and a girlfriend!
