MARILYN'S WAY Family Fun Day. What plans do you have for today? With Easter as the holiday this weekend I am sure many of you have family members you haven't seen in awhile. It is always exciting when they arrive and who cares if you get sidetracked and burn the brownies. Just make another batch and have fun! Right now I have cookies in the oven and a flybaby's mishap is keeping me alert so I don't burn them. I have my timer on and I am sitting close to the oven. Why? Because I have an insurance salesman coming and even though to many bakers I cheated using Schwan's chocolate chip cookies, I can ensure they will taste good as long as I don't burn them.
So what type of shape is my house in? It is in great shape! Thank you Flylady for teaching me these skills. Granted I had to do a couple of Pick Up and Put Away or Declutter Sessions BUT ONE thing I didn't have to worry about was my SHINY SINK! I think if my sink would have been full of dirty dishes, I would have felt defeated and my anxiety would increase and instead of focusing on his presentation so I can ask the right questions, I would have been continually apologizing for my messy house. Exhale. Today I don't. How cool is this?
My fun for today is to get my heated greenhouses out and plant some flowers. Yesterday wasn't my best day. I let too many things bother me. I am glad when I went to the store last night I decided to remedy it with getting some seeds and seedlings started. And Mom I even got an Asparagus Plant to try again! So, while your family is together this Easter, remember what Easter stands for, respect it and also have some Family Fun Time! The timer just went off. Time to get the cookies out of the oven.

PS This guy was very familiar with Schwans. He worked for them for 17 years! Yes, he ate some cookies!
