It was Mother's Day here in the US on Sunday. Usually I make Mum at least a card, but this year I didn't. I was too sick to make one and get out and post it. Sigh. I did honour her on UK Mother's Day back in March so all was not lost. I told her I owed her a meal out when I come to visit. I can't believe it will just be seven weeks and I'll be there!
We went over to MILs where hubby grilled out. It made quite the nice change as I haven't seen her for a while. My MIL is a lovely lady. I am so lucky to have her in my life. She could have been a bit funny when we met as we didn't meet until hubby and I were already married. She welcomed me with open arms and when we first came to the states and things were tough she helped us out a lot with the kids.
We did go out for a little walk in the morning but the weather wasn't too good. There has been a lot of rain, cooler temps and storms. I'm more than ready for some sunshine again! The beach was pretty quiet but in a few weeks things will be completely different!
I am starting the week as I mean to go on. I've actually made lists! Yes, me. Lists!
Food :- taco, sausage rolls, chicken quesadillas, sausage pasta, homemade chicken tenders.
Petrol prices are still quite high so I want to shop for all the food needed for recipes in one go. I actually cleaned out the cupboards last week (in small bursts lol) but they are now nice and tidy. I want to make sure to buy only what we need with a few staples on hand to make some quick meals if needed.
To do list - things will probably be added to this but these are the extras I want to get done.
* finish up April Pages
* do at least 8 pages in my All About Me book
* make & post card for sister's birthday
* sort at least 10 books to get rid of
* at least 5 Ebay listings
It's a good start. Small steps that I can follow through on.
I do hope it stops raining so I can go for a little walk. I need to get my stamina back and small walks seem the way to go. I hope everyone has a lovely Monday. I'm leaving with this photo I took in my garden. I love this bird. I need a caption.
