    It's Week FOUR on the HGP! Can you believe it?

    This week the plan's focus is in the bedroom - the idea being that we create a place of retreat and refuge for the busy weeks ahead!


    • Make one batch of Holiday Goodies.
    • Make one extra meal for freezer again labeled HOLIDAY MEAL.
    • Buy two canned food items from menus (get 2 of each item, one to use and one to donate to food drive).
    • Buy 1/8th of TO BUY gifts. Save all receipts, note return policy before buying. Ask for gift boxes
    • Wrap and label packages. If needing to ship, get some shipping boxes now and store packages in them.
    • Work at least 1 hour a day on homemade gifts.
    • Make list of any table and bathroom linens that need replacing before the holidays, and pick up a few each week.

    Perfect timing cause our bedroom is a wreck. We had been so busy working on the kids rooms, repainting the kitchen and livingroom over the summer that our room got neglected. It's long over due for a major cleaning and decluttering.

    I will be picking up bunch of stuff to make stuffed shells and lasagna this week so I can make a couple freeze a head meals. Gotta love when the grocery store has a sale on the ingredients you need :)

    My room needs a good vacuum, which requires someone to help move the sleigh bed so I can get under there! My sons are helping me with this task! Curtains coming down to wash and pillow inserts out in the sun!

    Plus I put the first coat on the storm windows and the kitchen porch for painting today. Second coat tomorrow after work if all goes as planned :)

    I've been trying out some recipes from my pins, to see what recipes will be my 'go-to' for cookies and desserts :)
    The spiced pumpkin buttercream was a hit with the boys, made the too dry pumpkin muffins better!

    My bedroom is the room for next week. I am always slightly off the HGP because I do my house in a particular order. It is great to see what you have all been up to so I can add anything new to my list. I will be doing my ensuite today and my bedroom tomorrow if I get inclined or Wednesday if not. I too need the boys to help lift my bed so I can clean under it.

    As for Holiday prep, when I do the groceries this week I will remember to buy a few tins extra, some for the stockpile and some for the food drive. I also need to start getting the items for the charity Christmas tree together.
