Okay, you know what it is like to face a big project and think you will NEVER get it done! I have one of those projects going now. I have a collection of family photos hanging in my hallway that have been there for years. Some of them are not even very good pictures of folks…especially those school pictures of my daughters that were hung at the time they were taken. (You girls know which ones I am talking about…you are much more beautiful than that!)
Anyway, during my last tedious project (stripping the wallpaper in the master bedroom and repainting…which expanded to painting the hall…which expanded into painting the dining room, sitting room and kitchen. We call that the domino effect.) I took down all the pictures and decided to rehang some family pictures that I really like only in similar frames and printing them all in sepia tones. Easier said then done. Especially since I am matting all the pictures and have to custom cut each mat.
For that reason, I am using the Flylady Method. (Have you heard of Flylady? If not, Google it. She has a great way of organizing your life.) One of her tenets is that you can do anything for 15 minutes! So break the task down into 15 minute segments. It is often amazing how much you can accomplish in 15 minutes and you are not intimidated to start because, after all, you are just going to have to work on it for 15 minutes!
Here is the project as it is now.
Only about 20 more to go…
This is the one day a week that we have beef or pork for dinner. Last night, The Bearded One chose a beef stir fry as the meal of the week but today he changed to pork roast. I had a small roast cut from the end of a tenderloin in the freezer. (I but whole tenderloins when they are on sale and cut them into chops and roasts.) I cooked it and added roasted potatoes and carrots. Details in the recipe section. It was great! Meat moist and falling off the bone…oh, wait, there are not bones. Leftovers will make great pulled pork sandwiches.
