This and That Thursday

I really have meant to post before now, but life seems to have a habit of getting in the way.

Today I have managed to finish decluttering the office area. Quite proud of myself, I actually got ruthless for a change.

I think I just may follow this rule....Declutter just one thing each day. Small bites of what could be a fairly large elephant if I allow it to grow.

I also spent time doing one of my favorite things.
Baking!!! I love to bake, except when I absolutely have to. Guess what??? I absolutely have to. I have a fairly large meeting on Sunday and need dainties and such to serve. I did ask for help at our Parish Council ..... but not one single person stepped forward with an offer to bring something. Hmmm, perhaps I should pay back in kind. I really don't think I could do that however.

So far I have made Butter Tart Bars, Peanut Butter Marshmallow Bars, Oatmeal Muffins, Bran Muffins, and Brownie Bites. Tomorrow I will make 3-Layer Squares, Banana Bread and Coffee Cake. Whew, hopefully that will keep everyone happy.

I have also spent time on line looking at real estate on the various lakes in Saskatchewan. Harvey would really like to move to some place a bit more picturesque... I am beginning to think a move would do us a world of good. Things are getting much to expensive around here, and we are not getting any younger. An area of our province closer to specialists, good shopping, and a place we can be ourselves seems to be in the picture. Lots of all season cottage/homes on various lake fronts, but we would have to do some traveling to see them in person. Could be some short weekend trips in store for us come spring.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. Jackie ... I think you are much more generous with the parish council than I would be ...

    Would a move put you closer to the boys?

  2. DW a move would put us closer to both the boys. That is one thing in its favour.

    It would also enable me to get off some of these darn committees that I seem to end up on.

    God bless.
