We’re still slowly unpacking boxes from the move into our new house. The boxes were in our garage and barn. This week I unpacked all the books and sorted them. This article on minimalism and books is helpful when you have a lot! I’m celebrating the fact that I got rid of five books. It’s a start!

This week has been an off-week for cooking. Every night I’ve been super tired. Monday was all good – I did manage a healthy soup lunch and an easy casserole for dinner.

That’s all for this week! Don’t forget…

What’s your favorite kind of Oreo?

Mine? Double Stuf! Also, Oreos must be accompanied with milk or they’re not worth it! Do you agree?
