Mostly Homemade Mondays - Week 84

I feel like every Monday I greet you with a message about how awesome our weekend was. And, for the most part, it's pretty spot on. We are fun-loving people, and often have action-packed weekends. This weekend, however, we spent a lot of time around the house. Entertain me for a moment, and take a peek at all of the things we've accomplished since Friday:

  • Went to a movie at the cheap theater (Divergent, anyone?)
  • Fixed a rain barrel
  • Cleaned the gutters
  • Patched some holes in the chicken wire around our coop
  • Visited the local barbecue fest in our town with a group of friends
  • Got a half truck load of firewood (to feed our campfires all summer long!)
  • Put together the wood stove for John's garage
  • Had a hair appointment (John wasn't involved, obviously)
  • Weeded the garden
  • Weeded the flower beds in the front yard
  • Trimmed the bushes in the front AND backyard
  • Swept and deep cleaned the front porch
  • Bought a new king-sized bed (!!!!) - to be delivered in a few days
  • Grocery shopped
  • Had a pedicure with my bestie (Again, John wasn't involved)
  • John registered his new Harley Road King
  • Washed ALL of the floors in the house. Boom. 
  • Cleaned out the detached garage
  • Listed and sold a bunch of crap on Craigslist
That feels like a pretty accomplished weekend, don't you think? Now, to inspire you for the week ahead, let's get a collection of awesome posts for this weeks link up, shall we? 

On to the party:

Mostly Homemade Mondays is a series for people that are on a journey to better living, via healthier eating and a more natural lifestyle. We realize that there are different paths that we all take to get to that place, and this bloghop celebrates that. Whether you’re a seasoned raw foodist who has banned all things unnatural, or a rookie who is starting out by cutting out junk food, we’d love to hear from you! Link up with your favorite recipes, projects, crafts, or rants and raves.

The Hosts:

Jess from Scratch Mommy
Joyce from The Skinny Pear

  1. Thanks for the linky party! I just found you through Facebook. My blog at is about food, family, fun, and occasionally fiascoes. I love using fantastic local food, and meeting local food artisans. I want to help make delicious, healthy food accessible to everyone. I'm loving your page, and can't wait to explore it even more! :)

  2. You had a busy weekend! That is all we did all weekend too! I love weekends when we get a ton of projects done! Well done!

  3. Thanks for another great hop! I posted a guilt free chocolate pudding.

  4. I'm pretty sure your weekend was a LOT more productive than mine!
    (Was Divergent any good? I've been wanting to see it for a while now!)
    Anyway... Thanks for hosting! I've shared Apple Rhubarb Sauce with Vanilla Ice Cream... though, honestly, the ice cream is entirely optional. This sauce is divine all on it's own!
    Have a great week! :)

  5. Thanks for the linky Party! We had the whole week off, and did we get stuff done! Love weekends and vacation :) Linked up several posts! Check out our second youtube video Farm Fresh Pasta!
