I also tidied up a closet, and discovered a few potential eBay items, which I hope to use to offset my girls Las Vegas trip this summer. Time to start thinking about snowflakes again - financial ones, at least. :-)
I also picked our first batch of 2014 fruit from our garden:
- 8 Valencia oranges
- 12 lemons
- 9 mandarins
- 8 small oranges (variety unknown)
- 6 avocados
Now, to figure out what to do with all of the bounty!
Other things on the agenda for the day:
- Haircuts for the kids.
- Making a couple of dinners for the freezer.
- Figuring out what to do with all of the fruit.
- Yoga, weights, & a run.
- Bake bread.
- Take the kids to an arcade - they have gift cards. ;-)
- Hit Rite Aid to use a $2 reward that's about to expire.
- Pick up cucumber at the produce stand.
- Start working on our wills and/or taxes. Both are super fun projects, so I'll do whichever one I'm most in the mood for. Good times around here!
- Organize my pantry.
That's a wrap - on to accomplishing more today. What about you? What's on your weekend agenda?
Updating our wills and company year end are our "fun" projects month too lol. I am so jealous of all that home picked citrus!ReplyDelete
Ahh yes, so fun! ;-) I opted to juice everything, as the mandarins have seeds & my kids are opposed. We use the juice as the base for smoothies. Yum!Delete
Yummy! I so miss fruit... soooo good! This weekend I need to sew & work on laundry... nothing exciting. ;)ReplyDelete
I love weekends like this - I get so much done & feel productive. We didn't have any official plans, so it was clean out the garage, harvest the fruit, work around the house & in the kitchen, etc. Next up, we're taking the kids to the local school to run around while we run/walk/limp around the track. ;-)Delete
I would love to have your fruit trees. It seems like getting rid of kids clothes and toys is an ongoing project.ReplyDelete
I love this house & all of the mature fruit trees. We would snap it up in a minute if the owners put it on the market.Delete
I'll see your wills and taxes and raise you a FAFSA and business profit/loss statement. Good times ALL around!! lolzReplyDelete
Should I be starting the FAFSA now? Ugh.Delete
Oh lord, I remember my parents cursing over the FAFSAs! Good luck & may the force be with you. ;-)Delete
That fruit looks delicious!! How awesome that you were able to pick it from your own backyard!!ReplyDelete
We picked more this morning & the house smells amazing!Delete
that is so neat being able to pick all that fruit from your trees. We were just talking about getting our tax software bought; we were going to do it online, but I found a gift card for Best Buy so hoping there's enough on that to cover the cost.ReplyDelete
A belated Happy New Year to you and your family.
This will be the first year filing state & federal. What a treat that is sure to be. ;-) Hope your gift card covers your cost, & happy new year to you & yours as well!Delete
Your harvest looks so pretty! I love avocado.ReplyDelete
I like to leave it out on the table as a decoration, but there's too much of it. It's taking over the kitchen!Delete
Oooh I would be juicing and having guacamole today!ReplyDelete
Our wills were done again when kid # 3 born 7+ years ago. Still good for now. Taxes and investment research and household budget await me! Wheee! (So not my thing!)
Freezer inventory, meal plan and groceries for the week will be this morning.
(I am jealous of the citrus!)
One thing I've learned since having an avocado tree - they don't ripen on the tree! I had no idea. I kept waiting for them to soften up to pick them. I finally did some research, & you have to ripen them inside - I use a brown sack with a banana to speed things along. Sam (my oldest) is a huge fan of guacamole, so I try to pick a few a week to ripen slowly.Delete
I juiced all of the citrus, so I'm considering that my arm workout for today. ;-) Good luck with all of your "fun" projects!

Wow! You guys had a lot of tasks for the day, but I'm glad that you were able to do everything! It's nice that you cleaned your kids' rooms. It is an unspoken rule that we have to make our house as clean and as safe as possible for our family. The next time you have a cleaning project, you can rely on trusted suppliers to provide you with superb cleaning materials.ReplyDelete
