  1. That's a good list! I bought a pre-owned Cricut this week & want to make a birthday banner! I also want to relearn how to use my sewing machine & make a pillow bed for our puppy.

  2. I plan to sit on my tail and do nothing, but the realities of life have other plans for me, so I guess I will be washing clothes and cleaning the house. It's a shame because my plan sounded a lot more fun.

  3. My big plans for the week will be grocery shopping and sweeping and mopping floors. I don't always make my goals on the day I hope but I do my best. Laundry day is coming up to.

  4. Very nice list, my friend...
    I'm doing one small task a day during lent.
    Seems to be working!
    Today I dusted the picture shelf...But really took my time and dusted and admired each photo with fond memories. : )
    Have a cozy week!

  5. I'm a list kind of girl and I love crossing off the list the tasks that I have completed. Thanks for sharing your week with us at #Overthemoon link up.

  6. Hi Laura! Your flowers are so pretty! I've got a few things on my plate this week outside the normal. Tomorrow is Avalon's 7th birthday so we'll be doing party stuff tomorrow. Sometime this week I need to organize my desk and crafting area because I'm getting ready to get my ebooks finished up, and this weekend I have a lovely women's conference to attend and have some me time! yay! ;) Hope your week is beautiful!


  7. Flowers are beautiful.
    You have a good list... Hope you got a lot done.
    I did 2 loads of laundry, Mopped the floors, dusted and
    cleaned out bathroom cabinet and washed it out..[trying to do some
    spring organizing and de-cluttering each day

  8. Sounds good, Anne, but I don't get to do it very often. If I'm sitting, I'm usually doing something, even if it's reading a book for review.

  9. My list includes some of the same as yours and lots to do with our big move, lol. Never a dull moment here lately it seems. Hope you have a great day!


  10. Wow look at all the marked off the list! I love those kind of lists!
    I'm trying to be thriftier. We're trying to have a patio garden. We/I
