Happy Saturday Friends!

What are your plans for the weekend! We finally had our late Christmas here this past week. It certainly wasn’t the same and it actually only included Annie. This came up at Tommy’s Restaurant and he couldn’t leave at the last minute. Kenny decided to stay back in LA just because of all of the Covid upticks. I mailed all his gifts off to him early in the week.

Now that it’s just us for a while, we are beginning a pretty big renovation. This week on the blog, I’m going to share with you step-by-step, how to plan for a home renovation. Since there isn’t an original wall in this small house, I’m getting pretty good at this!

Tuesday’s Blog Post

On Tuesday I shared a favorite recipe that I skinny’d down. I’m a huge fan of anything with Mayo in it. I love tuna salad, potato salad, macaroni salad – you get the picture. I had a craving for shrimp and pasta salad but I’m also doing my best to cut calories so I came up with a new version and it was delicious.

  1. So many great organizing ideas. I’m trying whet things organized around here. It’s a big job. Happy Saturday!

    1. A huge job but so rewarding when it’s done!

  2. A quiet Saturday. Hopefully, we are done with sickness and Covid quarantines in our family at large. We still have one more gathering with my daughter’s family. So I surely do identify with the changes in the usual family celebrations. Happy Weekend Lynn!

    1. Can you even remember when we thought Covid would be over in a few weeks! It seems like we just can’t seem to see a light at the end of the tunnel.

  3. Love your organizing tips Lynn! I am in full blown organizing mode over here too!

    And I cannot wait to try the shrimp pasta salad. It look amazing!

    1. Thanks for reading and commenting Michele – I need to get better at that. I read everyone’s blog posts but just can’t seem to find the time to comment.

    2. Getting organized is very rewarding. It’s tons of work but worth the effort.

      I wish the COVID situation would work its way out but don’t think it will happen

      For healthy people ita horrible cold.

      People like with autoimmune diseases It’s tough

  4. You’ve been busy as usual Lynn! Glad you got to have your Christmas even though it was late. Happy Weekend my friend!😊

    1. I had actually scheduled that blog post early. Christmas ended up not happening. The night before Annie & Tommy were supposed to come home, she tested positive.

  5. Not sure what’s wrong but I keep getting the same post from you about Christmas over and over, can you please fix this?
    I really want to be a friend / subscriber

    1. Hi Debbie –

      That is really bizarre – I have absolutely no idea why that would happen and I haven’t heard of that from anyone else. I will look into it. I will email you directly.
