This month has been an absolute blur! I’m still working mostly from home aside from going into the office once a week. The only other real news is that we’re in the process of refinancing our mortgage – which I’m not going to lie, was a little more stressful than I was anticipating. We’ve been working extra hard this month out in our yard and doing a LOT of spring cleaning so we could make our house look pretty for the appraiser.
We’ve only had our house for a little over 2 years, but with a baby I didn’t do a great job of keeping up our garden areas. There also was quite a lot of stuff left under our deck from the previous owner that we were able to get rid of. It looks much better now! We still have a few more things to get done, but I’m hoping to get some before and after pics posted.
Anyway, here’s what else we’ve been up to this month.
Yep, there you have it folks. This is what quarantine has done to me. I’ve watched some Jeopardy too.
Don’t Overthink It by Anne Bogel
I’m only 3 chapters in, but it’s already a good one. Even though this is a self-help type book, I can’t help but be amazed at what a good story teller she is. I have been so tired at night I haven’t been able to bring myself to read, but I’m determined to keep going, no matter how slow.
These Cheese-steak Sloppy Joe’s by Heather with The Toasty Kitchen
I found this recipe on Pinterest and tried it last night and it was so so good! I added mushrooms (yuck, but my husband likes them and I’m trying), subbed with pepper-jack cheese, and added chipotle ranch. They tasted A-mazing!
The feeling of accomplishment.
That might sound cheesy, but getting so much done this month has been so refreshing. I’ve been feeling extra blessed with what we have and extremely thankful.
I hope you all are hanging in there. Here’s do a wonderful and happy May!
Much love to you all,
