Mark was gone most of last week and this is what saved me. Making meals up before the kids get any food. It sounds simple, but it has taken me ... what over 5 years to figure this out. (Sometimes the simple things take me a long to figure out.)

We had a good week that involved lots of home time, movies, crying, yelling, laughing (thankful more of this then the previous 2), friends and no photos.

On Saturday, after Mark got back, I went with my friend Kari to a BIG fabric sale. We went a little overboard (OK Mark I went very overboard). Here is a photo of the fabrics (most of them where $3.25 for a yard!!!)

Most of them are cotton, but I did score 3 nice pieces of linen also (I can not wait to make some new napkins for the family!)

Then because we had some time left and because our friend Stephanie was in town we met her at the Dig (our $1/pound thrift store). I got a bunch of cool stuff including this wonderful new blanket for park going ..... I love it... I saw it across the room and ran (OK maybe it was a slow jog, but I was holding my breath hoping that no one would there before me;).

Yesterday we were out in the sun (on the new blanket) and in the yard most of the afternoon. I put a couple of chickens in the oven using this recipe that Stephanie said was great (BTW she said that I should make 2 , I was going to only make one, and I listened to her boy was she right!) If you like chicken you should all try it... it is easy peasy and yummy. Oh and I did not let it sit for 4 to 6 hours I just put the spices on and stuck it in the oven, I can not imagine it could taste any better then it did;) Well now I need to get going with my day. Happy Monday everyone.

Wow that looks like some yummy fabric. Maybe I will try having breakfast on the table before the kiddos get up.
