My tip for today has to do with the wooden handles utensils in your kitchen. If they are starting to get dried out due to use or maybe them getting washed in the dishwasher. Get some mineral oil and put some on a clean soft cotton cloth or an old washcloth it doesn't take a lot of the oil . Let it soak in the cloth just a little while . Then wipe it into the wooden handles of your utensils. This keeps them looking good and lasting longer.

My weekend was good and busy. Saturday we worked around the house getting things put up in the attic. Alan and I had put the lights in a few weeks ago but had to wait to get the things put back up. Then Coco and I got the little girls room painted. It is a bright green and very happy. Unfortunately the paint was a little watery so I have to get another gallon and go over it one more time. The girls love the color of it, I do too!
Saturday night Alan started making the platforms for their beds. My food storage buckets that you have often seen in my pictures from my craft room are going to be the base of their beds. There will be a platform that will be placed on top and then material will cover up the buckets underneath. So the buckets will be out of the craft room and the girls will have single beds in place of their bunk beds. I love bunk beds for the space saving aspect but in Arizona you need ceiling fans in almost every room during the summer so you can't have the bed that is close to that and they are a pain to make. When the buckets are moved out Alan and I are going to make floor to ceiling shelves for food storage. I am so excited about this. Our house doesn't have a basement and there is not a lot of storage space.
Sunday we went to church. It had to have been the nosiest Sacrament meeting I have ever been in. Holy cow I was getting annoyed at the parents who bring loud toys to church or don't sit with their children to keep them reverent. But it was a good meeting anyway. After church we came home had a bite to eat and then took a lovely nap. I was tired and it was so good to have a quiet time.
Coco, Kyle and Talmage came over for a cookout. After dinner we had root beer floats. Talmage just had ice cream . Since it has been a little while without a picture I wanted to share some with you.
Talmage really enjoyed the ice cream.
We had a good evening and always enjoy having the family together.
I have my list made out for today so off I go. Have a great Monday! Hugs, Bobbi Jo
