I'm not an extremely busy person, but my days seem to go by too fast. There are certain things that have to get done by a certain time. School work, grocery shopping, sometimes laundry. Then there are things I want to do, but they often get put off for later or never. Blogging, exercising, watching the TV shows I recorded from last week are all on my to do list.
Part of my time problem is organization. I love organizing things, but I'm bad at keeping those things organized. I can spend days organizing my desk at school only to have that messed up a day later. Same thing with my closet and kitchen. I wish I lived by this phrase, "a place for everything and everything in its place." I like to put everything in a certain place, but I have trouble keeping it there for longer than a few days. This problem leads to bigger messes and the inability to find things when you want them.
We painted our bathroom from yellow...
Hall bathroom BEFORE.
Hall bathroom NOW.
Hopefully I'll be able to show you an after picture this week!
On the organization side, I started organizing my photos from the past year. I like to write who is in the photo and when and where it was taken. After this I am putting them in photo boxes in the order they were taken. I am labeling tabs in the boxes by month and year taken. Hopefully I'll be able to keep these photos in their place for a while.
This weekend, I made the Pioneer Woman's lasagna. Sarah Barry gave me her cookbook for Christmas, and it is great! The recipe in the book is a little different from the one on her blog. Instead of parsley flakes (on her blog) the book uses real parsley, and instead of mozzarella slices (on blog) she uses shredded cheese in the book. Both look good. So I guess you can do whatever you prefer. I took pictures to practice food photography, but mine do not compare to the PW's. I have never made lasagna before, and I thought this was great! That Pioneer Woman can really cook!
For bread, I bought a loaf of already sliced Italian bread. I chopped a garlic clove and smashed it with the flat part of my knife. I melted the garlic and butter and brushed it on the bread. Wrapped in foil, I threw it in the oven with the lasagna for about 15 minutes. It was yummy too!
I also baby sat this tiny child. Stephen Small! And he walked all over my house!
Hopefully I'll be able to get more things done in March. After all, I do have spring break to look forward to!
