Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! We made it through another week and I’m excited for the weekend. I need the mental break from working and homeschooling. The weather today and tomorrow is going to be a little chillier and rainier than I would prefer but hopefully it turns around soon. Here’s what I’m loving this week:

Garden/Landscaping Progress

We had a few yards of dirt and mulch delivered on Saturday and we worked really hard this week to move the dirt and mulch where it needed to go. We worked on building some raised garden beds, mulching our flower beds, and filling in dirt in some spots. We will wait a little to plant the grass seed in those spots because we still have some colder nights ahead. Right now we are in the messy middle but I am excited about progress.


Marvel Movie Marathon Continues

We moved on to the second Captain America movie this week. I enjoyed this one a lot. I think I really like his character and Natasha. We also watched Guardians of the Galaxy and oh my… this one is a little out there. Honestly I think this could be a much more interesting story but it feels very compressed and rushed. I also have a hard time keeping track of all the different planets and names of the people groups from them. We have 12 more movies to go. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on it all in a big post once we finish.

Cheese Bread

My sister got me The No-Fuss Bread Machine Cookbook for my birthday a few weeks ago and this week I tried the Double Cheese Bread. Ignore the smashed top… when I was sliding it out of the bread machine pan I accidentally dropped it hard on the cooling rack. Despite the smashed top and overall unimpressive appearance it was delicious.

Mother’s Day Gift

My husband and kids got me a hammock stand for Mother’s Day and I am so excited! My parents got me a hammock and we are finally getting around to getting the stand so that I can use it. Considering how much we plan on being home this summer I am going to enjoy having a hammock to lounge and read in. I’ll share a picture next week… they are putting it together for me today!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!

I often have loaves that look less than stellar but they always taste great... actually my loaves come out looking fine but get smashed a bit when I'm trying to cut them. I love my hammock stand; can't wait to see photos of yours all set up. Enjoy!

Thank you! All that matters is how they taste.

That’s how our weather sounds too! I’m hoping the things I’ve planted survive.

And the hammock sounds amazing!! Happy weekend!
