Happy Monday! Do you have the day off? Preschool is closed today so I’m free. Free to get things ready for the week ahead by doing laundry, cleaning the house, and going to the grocery store. SIGH.
In the spirit of renewing and refreshing, I’ve spruced up the blog a bit. What do you think of the new look? I’m also trying to decide if I should keep up (publicly) with the planning and meal planning posts.
For today, I’m linking up with Sandra from Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for the Happy Homemaker Monday post and Laura from I’m An Organizing Junkie for Meal Plan Monday. I decided to go ahead and put both things in one post today.
The Weather Outside:
Is anything but frightful. It is absolutely delightful! It is supposed to be 58 degrees today.
I’m sitting at the desktop typing this up with no extra sounds in this room. My husband is playing Call of Duty in the living room (I can hear the game gunfire). The boys and their cousin who is staying over are downstairs doing something. Probably playing a different video game.
To-Do List Items for the week:
- Clean the house
- Go buy body wash at The Dollar Tree
- Work on the Blog
- Hem J’s Pants.
Menu Plan for the week:
Monday: Thought about serving Chicken Ala King for the holiday but since I had a request from G to “get the stuff to make your chicken”, it will be chicken strips. Not my recipe at all.
Tuesday: Lasagna from a box. Garlic toast and salad, too. I have Bunco!
Wednesday: Ribs, corn on the cob, and more salad.
Thursday: Apple Sausage and Cabbage for us. Hot Dogs for the boys.
Friday: White Chicken Chili
Books and Television:
Just finished watching the entire series of Chuck on Netflix. A friend suggested it to me and I loved it in the way where I was very sad to watch the last episode on Sunday. I’m excited to watch The Goldbergs as well as The 100 on Wednesday night. I was disappointed in the book, The One Hundred by Kass Morgan although I’ll still probably read the sequel but I do really like the television series. I’m currently reading Son of a Witch by Gregory Maguire.
From the Camera:
Thoughts for the week:
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. (Psalm 51:10)
I just found this quote on Pinterest and it really struck me: Old ways won’t open new doors.
So in addition to helping me out by telling me what you think of the new blog design and whether you like these types of planning posts, I’d also love to hear what is on your agenda this week?
