Weekend Planning 4.23.10

**I haven't posted a pic of Duramax in a while, thought he might bring a smile to someone other than me, isn't he adorable? :)**

This weekend will be a little busier than usual. I am seriously welcoming this change :) I haven't been home much this week. Chevy Man has had an outburst of gout in his foot, so normal activities have taken about 10 times longer.. So I've had to cut almost all housework out of our schedule. Thankfully, he is feeling much better, so back to our regularly scheduled programing :D.. So now you understand why there are chores on days that they don't belong :)

-Daily Chores
-swiffer kitchen and bathroom
-clean entire bathroom
-clean up bedroom and vacuum
-Journalism Benefit @ 7

-Daily Chores
-clean out deep freeze
-storage run-bring a/c home :)!!
-Clean out garbage cans
-Spaghetti for dinner

-Play cards with Family
-Chili's on the menu.. but that just doesn't sound good.. who knows it might in 2 days lol
-clean out car

Weekend Planning was started by Molly @ My Happy House. Check her blog out. She's awesome! I'm also linking up to:

The Girl Creative


  1. I love the fact that his name is Duramax. We are Diesel enthusiasts in my family. Though my Hubby is a Cummins man and I'm a Powerstoke girl. But regaurdless, thats awesome! :)

  2. Hi Brandi, Sorry to hear that your Chevy Man has gout. My younger brother suffers with it too, and it's just awful. He is able to help his some with a modified diet during attacks. Has your man ever tried that? I know my brother drinks lots of cherry juice - and avoids several acidic or vinegary foods. I know it sounds weird, but it works for him.

  3. Following from The Creative Girl's New Friend Friday.

I'd like to send you a pattern through e-mail but your address isn't attached to your blog anywhere. Please e-mail me and let me know if you'd like a pattern and if you prefer sewing or quilting, or something else. Thanks so much!

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

How to Make Buttermilk From Regular Milk

Frugal Tip Tuesday is a weekly
series here at Frugal Farmhouse.
I want to share easy tips and tricks
to help you along your frugal journey.

How many times have you started making something only to realize that little container of buttermilk you bought 6 months ago is expired. Has it really been in there that long?

Here is a quick way to make buttermilk out of regular milk.


-Milk (just under 1 cup)
-1 Tablespoon White Vinegar or Lemon Juice

Put the vinegar (or lemon juice) in the bottom of a liquid measuring cup. Then fill it up to the 1 cup line with milk.

Let it stand about 5 minutes. Then you have Buttermilk! It gets kinda chunky, this is normal. Now you can use it in any recipe just as you would buttermilk.
