Menu Plan Monday

Just a popping in for a quick note to let you know what's going on our neck of the woods. The kitchen is now sporting a new color all white. It is a real change from the Italian rose that it has been for the last 6 years and I really like it. It's so much brighter and has a calmer feeling about it. The boys and I cleaned out the dressers of old tee shirts that were stained, had paint on them or were torn and all were turned over to Joseph to cut up and fill the rag bag with. They also made new 5 potholders from cotton loops and cut out 15 napkins. I made 8 new dish towels and now have 5 new dish cloths for the kitchen. I re-hung my quilt top valances in the kitchen over the french lace panels. I made the valences from a twin size quilt top that my husband had gotten from his great aunt had made a few years back. The had been packed away since the didn't matche the kitchen any longer. I also patched the knees of three pairs of Joseph's jeans for and he stitched up a vest and set of  felt boots for his Winnie the Pooh bear (the Classic, not the ugly yellow disney version) - we are reading through The World of Winnie the Pooh. He really is enjoying it and giving everyone wonderful narrations - finally. He also has gotten the writting bug. He carries around little paper notebook he made to copy down every word that he sees. Kody and Collin, well lets just say the are typical middle school boys doing what ever is required of them in the area of school work and the are done - although Kody seem to be reading more than he use to. Besides the Harry Potter set he is now reading through the Myrtars and Revolutionaries by DC Talk and of course Collin is always got some old cookbook rummaging through it. Well, I guess that about covers it for now. Here's our grub for the week.
