Monday Is Here....

Today is my day off, so have been cleaning up a few things around the house. Got the boy working hard on his schoolwork since there was a little lag in it for awhile (figuring out new scheduling with dad home). Have also learned that things do run differently with Mr. V home now days. Very interesting so far. See work habits are hard to give up right away. This morning he made new spread sheet for the daily and weekly things that need to be done around the house. Then he assigned everyone to there tasks he came up with (including himself). I seem to be left off for now, so I am the odd cleaning job person now. This is not the only thing that has been spread sheet/computer keep track of.
Anyway, since he was using the computer all morning (tweaking his spread sheet), I wasn't able to get some new photos of things to post. He wanted to go Sam's Club after lunch, so that is where I spent some of the afternoon. On the upside, I got 3 new magazines while there. I will post some pictures from them.....

The first one is Martha's magazine.



I wanted to get this one after seeing and reading about the above chicken on Linsey's blog. I really want to try this sometime.



Also, I find this outdoor cover very interesting. May have to make a trip to K-Mart to take it look at it. It is part of the Martha Stewart Collection there.


The next is Victoria.


I like the articles and most of the pictures. I am just not sure if the pictures are as charming as I remember from years ago when the original was still in print. I will keep buying it and see how it goes over the coming months. I use to love the original, so maybe it will just take time to warm up to the new one.

Finally there is this one, Quilt. Thought the cover quilt was very pretty. I just have never been that good with bright colors. But, I do like them when I see them. (Wow, that was a pretty bad job of scanning now that I see that picture up there, too lazy to fix it today...)The cover quilt reminds of some of the quilts that are seen on Patchy Work of Mini Grey....
I like these two versions of the same quilt pattern. Very cute room. The quilt is by Toby Lischko.
Last, we have this really nice quilt that is picture in the above ad. Follow this link to learn more about Valori Wells.
There, that is all for today. I now have some fun reading for the rest of the week. Wait....Mr. V just said that the new cabinets will be here on Friday. That should be interesting. This means we will have to store them, somewhere around the house while we take apart the old kitchen.....Until next time, hope you have or had a wonderful day.......

Oh, I had forgotten about Victoria's revival. I must have a look in Galignani next time I'm in Paris, maybe they will have it.

Oh yes, that chicken was very good! I'm going to have to make it again too.
