Happy Homemaker Monday, Goodbye February!

Wow, wasn’t I just posting hello to February just a few days ago?  Another month of 2017 seems to have just vanished!  This year is going so fast.  I wonder if I need to start my Christmas shopping?  Making my New Year’s Eve Plans.   Is it just me?

I’m a little late with my Happy Homemaker Monday (hosted by Sandra from Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom) today since I worked this morning.  I had great plans for the day and the week earlier.  Now, I can’t remember.  Hopefully, they’ll come back to me as I write my post.

The Weather

I had to get the ice scraper out of the trunk this morning to scrape the car windows.  It was 29 degrees and foggy. By the time I left work a little afternoon, the sun was shining brightly and I was hot in my jacket on the ride home.  It’s 60 degrees right now although supposed to rain later this afternoon and thunderstorm on Tuesday. Mostly warm weather for the rest of the week.  March is coming in like a lamb.  We’ll see how it goes out.

On My Reading Pile

I finished reading The Martian and started reading The Narnian.  Unfortunately, so far this biography of C.S. Lewis is so dry that I’m not sure I’ll be able to stick with it.  It’s time for another library trip both because I need new books to read and they seem to have not logged a book I *know* I returned to them.

Movies or Shows I Watched This Weekend

I finally watched 13 Hours in Benghazi (I read the book quite a while ago, it was actually more intense than the movie but both were equally disturbing).  And of course, I had to watch The Martian again after reading the book.  I love Matt Damon but they book was better.

Sunday, I watched my usual CBS This Morning, still miffed that the moment of nature seems shorter than it should be.  I also watched a few episodes of The X-Files and then, The Oscars.  All the dresses were so beautiful.  Found myself a bit surprised this morning since I turned it off after La La Land won best picture.  Of course, the only winning movies I’d seen were the animated ones plus Suicide Squad (it won for make-up, horrible movie otherwise).

On My TV

I’ll probably watch a few more episodes of The X-Files and then, The Flash on Tuesday.  Also, The Goldberg’s on Wednesday.

On The Menu

What is on the menu this week?  Good question.  I haven’t been to the store yet so it is still a bit up in the air.

MONDAY: Macaroni and cheese, corn dog nuggets (my husband ate leftovers)

TUESDAY:  Peanut butter waffles or peanut butter pancakes but probably just pancakes, bacon

WEDNESDAY:  Chicken strips

THURSDAY: *I may be working 12-5* probably pork chops (carry over from last week)

FRIDAY:  *I work 12-5* something with hamburger, probably tacos, maybe hamburgers, maybe out

To-Do List

I had some grand to-do list ideas at 7a.m. that are now gone at 2p.m.  What was on my to-do list for this week?

  1. Go to the grocery store 
  2. Finish putting away groceries
  3. Go to Target (yes, this is now a 2 week carry over but hey, I’m saving lots of money this way)
  4. Go to library and see why they think my book is not there (shouldn’t have used the outside drop box)
  5. Clean the house
  6. Take down the winter decorations (it’s time)
  7. Put away most of winter sweaters (I hardly wore them this year)


I need something new for the front door but I don’t have any ideas yet.

Looking Forward To

Is Monday too soon to look forward to the weekend?   My son had lots of friends spending the night and I’m hoping for a bit calm in the upcoming weekend.  I’m also looking forward to doing a bit of shopping this week (hopefully).

Looking Around The House

Need to clean, do laundry, hire a cleaning company, the usual.

From The Camera

The sky on Friday: She loves her books! Did I mention our weather has been weird?  It snowed for about 30 minutes on Sunday morning, I caught a picture of the big, fluffy flakes through the window. 

What I’m Wearing Today

My leopard print headband and shirt, light tan corduroy pants, and tennis shoes.

Simple Pleasure

Lately, this stupid game.  “Why do you always get hooked on the dumbest games?” (direct quote from the teenager)

Quote For The Week

Whew! It’s 10:08 but I’m posting this on Monday (barely).  What’s on your agenda for the week?

      I still think their needs to be an audio version of Matt Damon reading the book! Hope you start feeling better very soon.

    Hi there Jean!

    I hear ya about the time flying by!! I love your Sunday morning moment of nature comment. I love that show too and that’s one of my favorite parts. 😉

    The books always seem like they’re better than the movie, don’t they? One of the few exceptions to me was the book and movie Julie and Julia (about a blogger and Julia Childs). I thought both were pretty equally well done.

    Love your kitty and books pic!! So cute.
    Have a blessed week and hope the weekend comes fast for you. xoxo

      I’ve never read nor seen that movie though I’ve heard of the book/movie. Maybe I’ll add it to my list 🙂 The 100 t.v. series is MUCH better than the book but that’s the only exception I can think of at the moment. Hope you are having a great week!
