Earth Day 2011

It’s Earth Day and what does that mean? Well it is a day meant to inspire and make us appreciate our environment.

Earth day was founded by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson on April 22, 1970 and went international in 1990.

So what can you do?

Stamp Camp and Soaping

I know I have been MIA for a much to do to keep up... I am in awe of those that can do it all....I am a work in progress for that.

The shop is going great, but we see we need to get going on soaping in order to keep up. We are closed Easter Sunday so we are planning that day to kick out a bunch of logs of soap, of course fitting in making a ham dinner for the family.

We made a couple soaps the other night...looking at it now you would think it was for a baby shower, but the blue is Arizona Sunshine, and the pink swirl is Black Raspberry Vanilla.

Of course I have to have some fun in here somewhere so I am having a couple friends over tomorrow night for our own stamp camp. We have each come up with a project to share with the are the pieces of mine....

....whatever shall it turn out to be?? Be sure to come back over the weekend to see. :)

Tasks to Accomplish

Day 1 of The Hubs working the shop alone….and oh how I have such high hopes of accomplishing stuff!!!

The shop closes at 5:30 and is an hour drive from home…I get off work at 4pm, so this gives me 2 full hours of aloneness in the house. When The Hubs is home, I for some reason accomplish NOTHING. I seem to be just lazy and unmotivated. So I am hoping to take advantage of no excuses of interruptions during the week and actually get things done. Now just what is on my agenda??

Well cleaning for one, I know....I said the dreaded yucky word, but I know I can do it.

Another big task I would like to do….WII Fit, this may be the hardest task to find motivation for….but I plan to try. Anyone do WII Fit?

Lastly I plan to cook dinners. Today I sent Baby Girl to the store with a list of items to be able to make a weeks worth of meals. Anyone have receipes to share for next weeks meals?

Stay tuned and lets see if I can manage to stay on track this week…..
