A Day With Nothing Planned

I tell you what. I had the best day yesterday. Sure it was very busy, but I walked in the joy of the Lord and His victory all day long. I had the meetings mentioned yesterday and then errands to run after them and of course dinner to cook and clean up to do. We had bar-b-que chicken breasts, green beans, garlic mashed potatoes, garlic bread and fruit cocktail. Yes, I used instant potatoes. I'm sorry but real ones just weren't going to happen last night. Still we love this particular kind and I can often get it for about 35 cents a box by combining coupons and sales.
Today I discovered that I have absolutely nothing on my calendar. I'm so excited, I hardly know what to do first. My main plans for the day include finishing up a bit of laundry, vacuuming, cleaning the kitchen, and deep cleaning the bathroom. Then I must go to the commissary as our cupboards are looking a bit empty. I haven't decided about supper yet. We have a bit of chicken left over from last night but since it is covered in bar-b-que sauce, I can't cut it up and throw it in a casserole.
I don't make up a menu for the week like a lot of you do. I have tried that, but by day 2 I decide that I have a taste for something else than what is on the menu and then the whole thing is scrapped. I do shop based on the sales though and then decide what to make from what we have in the kitchen. I can stick with it pretty well by keeping well stocked pantry (hey when I see a sale and have coupons I stock up!) and by the fact that DH and I both hate running to the store for something.
Well, I'm off to start my day! Blessings to all!
