Happy Saturday Friends!

I was like a whirling dervish this week. There isn’t a spot that hasn’t gotten cleaned and I’ve moved furniture and things in every room in the house! “Handy” said last night that while it’s weird not have Emma home anymore, it’s nice to get some space back.

I’ve put my office back into her old room and it’s a cozy, bright space. I just need a new chair and you can be sure that I will have my eye out next week during Prime Days! See Thursday’s Post!

Tuesday’s Blog Post

Foil Pack Meals are great for easy dinner prep. You can also put them on the grill to keep your kitchen cooler. We make campfire potatoes a lot and that is what got me thinking about all the ways you can make a meal in a foil packet. Check out Tuesday’s post for some ideas.

Friday’s Blog Post

Ok Friends! I’m Primed and ready for Prime Days at Amazon. This is the time (twice a year) when Amazon has some amazing deals that are only available to Prime Members. If you’re not a member, try the 7-day FREE trial so you can score some amazing things!

Think of early Holiday shopping, college shopping, or a new FRAME TV! I’m thinking about new linens and towels.

Check out my post on Friday all about Prime Days and how I will keep you informed of the great things to buy.

  1. Lynn, how fun to rearrange and clean everything! It is always an adjustment when someone leaves the nest, but it just means they are off living their own life! Thanks for the reminder on Prime Days…I never seem to pay attention but am a Prime member. Happy weekend!

    1. Hi Mary – It’s been so nice to have everything clean and in order. It’s amazing what a difference one less person makes. I’m excited for Prime Days, I will be keeping my eye on it all day Tuesday and Wednesday.
