Menu Plan Monday

Hello, my lovely readers!  It is Monday again which means another weekend has flown right by.  Where does it go?  The weather was wonderful and perfect for getting out and doing something.  Our “something” on Saturday was pressure washing the front of the house.  Yay. (That was some sarcasm for you if you couldn’t tell.)  C & I learned a neat little trick though.  C wondered if the dirt and mildew would come off easier if we sprayed on some soap first and let it soak for a few minutes.  I happened to have an empty spray bottle so we tried it.  Score!!!  In fact, it worked so well we had C’s dad stop at the local store and pick us up a one gallon pressure garden sprayer.  Why hadn’t we learned this before?  The work went so much faster.  We will hopefully finish the back this week and do our tall north end in the next couple of weekends.  It already looks so much better with what we have done.

Also this weekend, our little hometown had its annual fall festival with a very special guest.  A young man who graduated from our high school just a few short years ago was recently awarded the Medal of Honor for his brave acts in the war in Afghanistan.  He was honored locally by being the grand marshal of the parade and having a street named after him.  We weren’t able to attend, but from what I have heard, the ceremony went great and there was a huge crowd to greet him.

I hope all of you have a wonderful week with some good food and fun!
