Thursday doings

No little grands here today so I am doing stuff that I can't really do when they are here.

In the crockpot, a big batch of pinto beans are cooking with jalapeños, cumin, chili powder and garlic. 
When they are cooked, I will make them smooth in the food processor for the most delicious Refried beans. We will have bean burritos and a big salad for supper, the rest of the beans will go in the freezer.
here is how I do them 
Yard work - first I mowed the back, then I planted the onion sets my brother brought. 
I put them in big pots, and enriched the soil with homemade compost.
While I was planting onions, I brought over the rest of the posts and planted them too. 
More tomatoes in 2, dill in 1 and flowers in the others.
For now, the pots with new seeds are under the pergola roof. They will still get quite a bit of sun but the roof should protect them from heavy rainfall we may get soon.
if you look close, you can see some of the cherry tomatoes I started from see are doing great and I put the support cages on them today. 
A close up of the katawpa tree- I think it is funny and looks like a drawing from a Dr Suess book.
in the yard, I found some eggs that the grands did not find Saturday - one egg was hanging from  our clothesline, I wonder which of my clever children or brothers hid it there? 

My list for the week is almost done!  :)
I am going to clean our bathroom, have some hot tea, and then I plan to sew all afternoon on 2 dresses and 2 tops for me. 

hope you are getting stuff done this week too!

My! You are industrious. When you are done with this week's list, and the week isn't over, do you start a new list at once, or give yourself a day or two off?

Things most certainly are getting done around there! :)

I admit it - I got a little tired reading your list from today! Not from reading it- from thinking about how much you did today. I know you must feel great from getting so much accomplished. Thanks for the bean recipe. I am going to make a batch. My husband will love them!

Your clever brother Robert and I :))

Love the veggies. I so need to work on my sewing. Lol, we found an Easter egg this morning the kids didn't find too. I'm sure there will be more.

Have a great weekend,

Not a stitch, at least not on my clothes in progress.

I usually make a list at the beginning of the week. I may add to it as the week goes on. But for weekends, there is not usually a list unless something just has to done.
