Today was the type of day that I cherish. My family and I were supposed to be in Puyallup early this morning for a very long day of volleyball with my favorite youngest daughter’s team. Unfortunately my youngest got VERY sick last weekend and missed school almost all week...she barely made it through the early release Friday. She needs a few more days to recover...so volleyball was cancelled (by me). I was sad...but excited at the same time.
Here’s what I did...
Woke up ~ enjoyed a couple cups of my “poor mans” mocha and read the paper
Couponed and organized the coupons
While the bread was rising...ran to Fred Meyers and saved major money on some groceries
Got home just in time to shape the bread dough...2/3 of the dough went to making 2 loaves of bread, the other third went into the freezer for pizza night next Friday.
While outside...I cleaned out a flower bed. My three peonies have broken through the dirt!
Baked the bread
Ate an amazing peanut butter and jelly sandwich...on homemade bread ~ YUM!
Decided to make a crockpot soup with the cheap cauliflower I got at Fred Meyers..."googled" to find a good recipe
Washed more clothes
Went to Safeway...saved 50% on a cart full of groceries. Feels good to be saving $$ again
Decided to sit on the couch, have a snack and read for a bit...I woke myself up snoring
Finished up the crockpot cauliflower soup...yum and made cheese zombies for dinner (look for recipes in an upcoming post)
Decided to make muffins for the month ~ first batch up, triple chocolate muffins (24 each), next...blueberries with cinnamon & sugar topping (22 each) and finally I made my favorite, pumpkin and cream cheese (22 each)
Worked on this blog while my hubby and favorite youngest daughter watched the high school basketball playoffs. Our Lake Stevens girls finished 5th in state...they were an amazing team to watch this year.
What I didn’t do today? I didn’t get to start the quilt that I am making for little Maddi’s second birthday, didn’t go to the gym, didn’t take a shower (I went out in public with less than good looking hair and no makeup...I made sure to not make eye contact with anyone, in case I saw someone I knew). And now that I am thinking about it, I do believe I forgot to brush my teeth. Yuk.
