Week 19 in my #housewife #bulletbinder. "I am beautifully and wondrously made." The late arrival of spring had me scurrying about with all kinds of chores this week. Got the big outside stuff done before pollen season kicks off, and I even had some time to craft.

I had the incredible opportunity to visit the gravesites for all eight of my great grandparents within one week just before #memorialday. Half are in North Dakota, and half are close to home in Oregon. I only met one of them in person, but I have heard wonderful stories of them all. Pictured here is the headstone for my mom's dad's dad. He was a German from Russia (really!). #familyhistory #ancestors #familytree #genealogy #northdakota #beulah #bismarck #voegele #germansfromrussia #german #christian #praisethelordmysoul #lobedenherrnmeineseele via Instagram http://ift.tt/2ryLPZb

Fresh picked #oregon #strawberries! Thanks, @midway_farms, for growing strawberries that are REALLY red all the way through. Like they should be. California, are you listening? #nowhitecorecaliforniacrap #sweeterthansugar #oregondoesitbetter via Instagram http://ift.tt/2r5nQxl

Week 18 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletbinder. What a busy, crazy, good week! My sister, @craftytacogeek, was home for a week, and we had lots of fun crafting, shopping, and eating too much good food. Our mid-week trip to the #oregoncoast was a wonderful treat! While I didn't have much time for my own pursuits, I also didn't have much time for chores or cleaning. #sotheresthat Images from #freepik. #mistakesareproofthatyouaretrying #bulletjournal #bulletjournaling #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournaljunkies #bulletjournallove #bujo #bujocommunity #bujoinspire #bujojunkies #bujolove #planner #planneraddict #plannercommunity #handwriting #houswifelife #splat #ink #inksplat #inkdrop #rainbow #checklist via Instagram http://ift.tt/2raNm3W

Week 17 in my #housewife #bulletbinder. Had a calm, quiet week that included plenty of thriving with some #bingewatching and creating. These are my favorite kind of weeks! #feather images from #freepik. #darlingyouareaworkofart #bulletjournal #bulletjournaling #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournaljunkies #bulletjournallove #bujo #bujocommunity #bujojunkies #bujolove #bujoinspire #planneraddict #planner #plannercommunity #handwriting #housewifelife #feathers #rainbow via Instagram http://ift.tt/2q1JMLt

What kinds of things do housewives do? Sometimes we stain fences. Today, I stained this gate (because I sort of blasted the old stain off with the pressure washer). With that done, hubby gets to come home after work and relax! #lessonlearned #fence #gate #stain #homerepair #housewife #housewifelife #goodwifey #hessospoiled #ihateoutside via Instagram http://ift.tt/2qPj6yj

My lunches for the week are ready to go! #saladinajar I like simple salad bases with #romainelettuce, #babyspinach, and #carrots. Used my #foodsaver jar sealer to #vacuumseal the #salads in my #handmedown #masonjars. Topping these with nuts and seeds, baby shrimp, salmon, or chicken, and a little bit of whatever dressing I want. #glutenfree #paleo #primal #dashdiet #mediterraneandiet #housewifelife #easylunches #lazy #mre #freshfood #realfood via Instagram http://ift.tt/2qlXSYt
