A Happy Saturday

by Katy on May 4, 2013 · 9 comments

Clean towels billowing on the clothesline, book holds waiting for me at the library and a pantry full of bulk purchased (and attractively stored) foodstuff.

It’s a happy Saturday.

I too am hanging laundry, as it’s a gorgeous day here in Upstate NY as well. (I hang mine indoors on racks year-round, but with all the upstairs windows open on a day like this, stuff dries in no time.)

And you’re going to have to run a photo of those matching food storage jars for the fans. I store my beans and grains in an attractive melange of old 1- and 2-quart wire-bale canning jars and newer 1.5- and 2-liter French jars–but it’s still a melange.

I will. I spray painted the tops of all my mis-matched bulk spice jars yesterday, so I’m feeling the love.

Sounds like all is well with your world, Katy!

Can’t wait to see a pic of those jars.

We’re having a heat wave here in NorCal. I’m trying to do as little as possible today, which includes NOT turning on the A/C and figuring out how to make dinner without cooking. Standing in front of the open refrigerator trying to decide is certainly refreshing. Perhaps I’ll go check the freezer next!

Oh, what a blissful day it is when the house is clean and the fridge/pantry are full 🙂

Mind you, I never said the house was clean. 😉

Thought of this group yesterday as I hung my sheets on the line to dry. We’ve had some great weather the last week here in NW Ohio!

Happy and frugal Saturday here, too! I worked which was fun and busy, took clean-out-the-fridge leftovers for lunch and dinner, had nice walks before and after work and finished off the day listening to a free performance of Brahms Requiem (comp tickets are a job perk).
The only downer was the weather–snow I nthe morning but it was nicer by evening.
