The Naked Truth this Week:

Doing:  I have spent the past week preparing to go back to work full-time.  I cleaned the house, wrote up the menu for the week, stripped the diapers, and got a sore throat from the husband.

Organizing:  Organizing Corban’s toy chest and rearranging the living room furniture were a couple of top priorities this week, along with organizing my stash of DIY ingredients that arrived this week and my scheduled blog posts.

Creating:  I made a batch of diaper rash cream, some cloth wipe solution, a citronella candle, and a scarf for my niece. I dabbled in some new recipes, including Bacon Egg Cups and a new oatmeal recipe.  I also started working on two new scarves to give away as gifts.  I am still working on my cross-stitch and embroidery projects.  I think those will take a couple of more months to finish up; they are not simple projects.

Reading:  The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory; The Fifth Figure by Jean Binta Breeze

Listening:  The Herman Cain Show
