Sunday Gluten Free Roundup, company coming, stress relief, weight loss #stress

My roots..Washington State tulips
This weekends roundup consists of my frantic plans to organize, clean, figure out menu's and precook meals before our company comes to visit.  They will be here for three weeks and I have a lot to do!

Looking back at last weeks Roundup I see that I got nothing, that's not true. I got lots of "other" things done! there's always so much to do when you are a blogger, recipe creator and wife to boot.  Now I'll try to catch up on few of those links and reads today if I have time.

I'm pretty nice to myself most of the time.  I don't stress out or beat myself up.  I do what I can and then the rest of the list will either go on next week or sometimes I realize it just wasn't that important anyway.

How do you deal with all the millions of chores, bills, housekeeping, social media, work, cooking, shopping, coupons and all that stuff we have to find time for?

Tip of the day:


1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon liquid dish soap
1 cup water
1 piece aluminum foil

1. Heat water in the microwave for 1 or 2 minutes.
2. Cut a piece of aluminum foil that roughly covers the bottom of a small bowl (like a cereal bowl).
3. Pour hot water into bowl. Place salt, soda, and liquid dish soap into bowl. Place jewelry on top of foil and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse jewelry in cool water and dry jewelry completely with soft cloth. Discard solution after use and make a new batch next time.
4. According to, "this works well for gold-filled, brass, German (nickel) silver, and sterling silver. I have even cleaned jewelry with freshwater pearls, shell cameos and mother of pearl with no problem.".
