Friday,My book shelf is done!


Hubs is like this for a couple hours a day. Kelsa loves how warm he is a listens to his heart.  I think it is her favorite time.  As you can see hubs is miserable.

Schmills had me up early with his antics about not going to school.  But alas they did not work.  His mom took him to school and is coming back with her little sister and baby Oliver.  Yeah! Can't wait to see him and see how much he has grown.

 I labeled these bins above the wash/dryer cabinets.  They hold all my cupcake wrappers, frosting stuff, cookie cutters,sprinkles, napkins, and misc. items I use once in a while. This freed up an entire cupboard in my kitchen for food I do use on a regular basis.  All part of making the house more functional as I live in it.  More changes will take place after I have cooked and gone through a few holidays.

I got Nathan to hang my drying rack.  This was my dads and came from Sweden.  I love it although this laundry room was not a perfect fit as it is too small.  But all I have in those cupboards behind it is the Christmas china so I won't be opening it often. 

Here is my new bookshelf , I am so excited to get it filled with the books that are all over our master bedroom floor right now.  One more step into the moving in process.  I won't let myself get started on this until I get my work list done for the day.

Roscoe had his first rattlesnake vaccine last night and is sticking close to me as he does not feel too chipper.  He has to go in for another booster in a month. Poor baby.

I have no idea what I am going to cook for dinner tonight so I need to put that on my list.

Things I need to do today:

1. bustle a wedding dress

2. clean shop

3. find something for dinner

4. sweep and mop all floors (even hubs is complaining)

5. snuggle babies

6. snuggle babies some more

7. run pick up ribbon from store.

8. load book shelf and arrange family room

Blah I need to get to work.  Our money will not be available until the 22 to return to our investment account, and I have to sit down this weekend and do a budget. Also the shop was very busy yesterday and the sign man will be here today, Hurray!

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you  re in the negative.



  1. You sure don't let any grass grow under your feet. Busy, busy, busy.

    1. It is crazy here with the baby taking so much time. but I am going to enjoy this.

  2. Sitting with a book and a baby must be a terrible pain for him! I read when I held babies, too.

    I need a bookcase maker! Having to do other things before you put your books in should be a motivator.

  3. Oh wow, you sound similar to me. My home blog, is about us trying to get our house in order before hubs retired - well that didn't work because he threw a curve ball and retired a few years earlier. SO now we're playing catch up.

    I am always inspired by others busy and productive lives - unfortunately I have been in a major funk since all this pandemic crap came and I watch others do, what I am having a hard time, getting done.

    I'm new to your blog and so far I am loving it.

    1. Well welcome Debby. The virus gets me down also, and I can truly understand your feelings. I am having a hard time focusing on things that need to be done, but I just keep trying. So happy we are in this together.

  4. I love the drying rack, Kim. Very nice. :)

    1. It is very old and is perfect for socks,shirts things that should not be dried.

  5. I hope that you anchor the bookcase to the wall to prevent ripping over with so many small children around! Must be nice to have such handy family!

    I frequently get cold sores(which lasts for 5-6 days on my lips and its painful both physically and mentally) .. As a bodybuilder, I basically get outbreak due to the daily pressure and heat in the body.. Recently I stumbled upon my salvation. I found a herbal remedy to cure hsv completely, in just 4weeks ..

    I got to know about Dr Utu after seeing a lady's testimony online. I reached the doctor and I ordered for herpes herbal medicine. He sent the herbs to me and I started making use of them. In just 2days, the cold sores are cleared. 4weeks after medication, I went to the hospital for test of cold sores and it was completely NEGATIVE.

    By following every prescription, i was able to cure my cold sore in less than 4weeks. 100% natural herbs no after effect.
    Note: Please do let others know if this work for you.
    The doctor's email is
    Note : follow all instructions accordingly..

    If you are sure that you have benefited from this African herbs be courageous to inform others.
    Thanks in advance

    1. Thanks Rue, I have been amiss with your blog forgive me.

  9. Daddy grew up with the drying rack at the kitchen sink, they had one rag for wiping the table, one for washing dishes and one to grease gunk... that is how he always worded it. He gave one to Mom when they bought their house. But I noticed neither of them had one when they were done raising kids LOL.
