This week’s real food meal plan and agenda focus on doctor appointments, packing and super simple meals.
The clock is ticking! We’re in the home stretch of packing and cleaning before putting our house up for sale and closing on our new house.
And while the time is winding down our excitement is ramping up!! I know it will take quite a few years to turn it into the farm of our dreams, but I’m already envisioning my updated kitchen, a new wrap-around porch, a large garden (maybe using this Back To Eden technique…so cool!) and an assortment of animals. Keeping that in mind makes all of the work right now more bearable.
Now I’ve got my mind going again thinking about all the possibilities! Time to get back to reality and the week ahead. We have doctor appointments three days in a row…real fun, huh? Neurologist, allergist and dentist. Somehow I don’t think that will help me get more cleaning done.
It also doesn’t really help my goal of trying to give myself a break from stress (especially when I have a nasty cold!!). I’m tired of my body slowing down. I want my life to slow down instead! At least I can take a bit of a break from work…sorry, no new posts this week. But I do have some fun stuff coming later in October!
Needless to say I won’t be spending much time in the kitchen this week. I’m keeping meal prep simple and any extra work to a minimum until the weekend.
