Keeping Track

I have been working on a few things to help me keep better track of things I want/need to do to make our home a place of sanctuary and inviting to family and friends.

First -- I started a "List" Notebook. I love to make lists and I seem to do that over and over again but usually on random note pads. And, I am sure you know how that worked out? Lost papers or a clutter of papers around my house. Now, I have one place to write them down. I carry it in my purse so that I can have it everywhere.

Second -- I have been working on my Menu planning. This has been a long process. I was doing fairly well at it for awhile. But, when income was cut, I had to cut back and re-think how to budget our money appropriatley. I also had been sick for the past 6 months and it was difficult to even remotely get a menu plan out. Though, if I had the menu plan organized a bit better, it probably would have been fairly easy even when I was sick. Alas, I am almost done with the plan. I will share it with you once I get it finished and I can figure out how to put it in PDF form so you can take a look at what I hope to be a good plan for our family.


  1. PDF995 is a free program I use on my work and home computers. It installs as a printer option. When you're ready to convert a file into PDF, you select the "print" option, select "PDF 995" as your printer, and it converts the document right there on the spot.

  2. What great ideas and hope you get feeling better!

  3. Yeah, thanks Jered. See, I knew I needed someone like to help me through this issue. Duh! I should of asked you! I will give it a try... hopefully in the next few days...I am ALMOST done with my documents!

    Thank you Sarah!! I appreciate your well wishes with my health. God is good.
