Being Productive. It happens so rarely it deserves a post.

I had several things on my To Do list today. First and foremost was iron. Ian was down to one white shirt, which he only wears with suits, so I had to remedy the situation. The boys are serving Mass on Saturday so I did their shirts too. That was at 8 a.m.

Since then, the boys and I cleaned up the living room and the second little living room and the front entry. To be honest, the second room isn't really clean, but we did clear our the little bookcase and the boys moved it to their room, while Jonathon cleared a shelf on the big bookcase for the school stuff for next year (you know, dictionaries, tape, stapler, lined paper, etc.). I did some laundry. I cleaned up the gerbil mess. He is worse than the cats with his wanton bedding flinging.

Meanwhile, I also had Jonathon make Banana Bread Muffins:

They turned out perfect, we were quite pleased.

Nicholas and I stopped by the store for some ingredients while meat was draining and drying back home.

For tomorrow's dinner we have Pineapple Honey Glazed chicken marinating:

And for Friday's dinner we have Asian Pork Roast in the crockpot marinating:

Once those were done I pulled out the strawberries that were on the verge of ick and decided eating them straight would not work, so into the casserole dish along with some overripe plums and some leftover crushed pineapple for a crisp:

Crap photo, but at least the lens wasn't fogged up like my first attempt. It's really runny, but I figure it'll do wonderfully with some ice cream.

And dinner for tonight at the pool? The always delicious Mac&Cheese&Tuna:

I'm starving.


  1. Can I put in an order? My kitchen is pretty empty right now.

  2. I wish! Since I'm productive so rarely I don't think I'd be doing you a service :)

  3. Well done. One can be really capable of great things when motivated. Hence there is productivity.
