Small Success Thursday - Summertime weather

Good Morning folks,

Here is SW Ohio, we are supposed to reach 90 Degrees today. Very warm for us in May.

It is that time of the week to reflect on those little things we accomplish as Mom's when so much or our world is 'Lather, rinse, repeat."

Last week, Barb, aka Franciscan Mom requested pictures of my home office, so you will find that post just prior to this one.

We had to narrow down our project list. We started planning to remodel our powder room. We picked out and purchased tile for the 25 sq ft room. Then we took our Grandson on our deck and realized it is in such bad shape that he could get splinters. Then, on Saturday  afternoon my oven would not heat up. Fortunately, May and June are months I am not making a High school tuition payment. Hubby promises that the cost to refurbish the desk will be minimal and then he strongly requested we buy a new range. Ours has drip pans and grates that are in constant need for cleaning. Newer gas ranges have dishwasher=safe grates and no drip pans, making wiping up spills a bit easier. We also got one with a convection oven. It will be delivered tomorrow. The powder room will be on hold until we get bad weather.

The toddler Grandson likes to wear blankets as a cape. I still have a black cape I made for his Daddy. We brought it up and it is way too big. So I whipped up a smaller cape for him. As an aside, I had a funny observation, his Mamma calls it his "Prince M." Cape. His Mamma has a sister, no borhters. I am the Mom of boys. To use it was a 'Super Hero" cape.

Have a great week,

Linking up with Catholic Mom.

Whoa--your home office--SO MANY SCREENS! How do you pick which one to look at? (I'd go bananas!)
Enjoy that new range! I wonder if my stove grates can go in the dishwashwer. It's 15 years old. Probably not.
Cracking up at the Superhero vs. Royalty issue. It definitely does divide along gender lines (I have 2 boys and 1 girl, so I see that ALL THE TIME.)

LOL, I am either doing IT support or documentation, So the Email and IM apps go on the smallest screen, then my admin tool goes in one and my document or ticket app goes on another.

And yes, there is a 4th screen, that is my personal laptop. It comes in handy researching stuff that is blocked by corporate servers.
