Menu Plan Monday

Whew, what a weekend!  It has been a busy at-home weekend, but C & I can now say that the pressure washing is done for the year!  Can I hear an amen?!?  C got to try out a piece of equipment that he has never used-a powered lift.  Our house has one side that is really tall because of the walk-out basement so we can’t get to the very top with just a ladder.  Of course, this is also the north side so mildew and mold grow like crazy there.  The powered lift solved this problem perfectly.  Here are a few shots of the process:


This is as high as I would go.  I hate heights.





It worked like a charm and now we have a clean house all the way around.  While C & his dad were working with this, I spray-painted our metal outdoor furniture.  There were a few rust spots starting to show and I wanted to cover them before they got worse.  Wouldn’t you know, I was down to two chairs and I ran out of spray paint.  Ughh!  Oh, well, I will get some more this week and finish that little job.  We also managed to mow and trim our yard, C’s parent’s yard, finish the laundry, cook a little food and blog some, too.  All in all, it was a very productive weekend.

Here is this week’s menu:

Taco Biscuit Bake (new)
