Did you enjoy your extra hour of sleep over the weekend? We had a cool, cloudy day Sunday so perfect for a little extra sleeping.
It’s even cooler this morning. I can’t even explain how happy it makes me to know it will be light out when I get up in the mornings now. Judging from Internet land, I must be in the rare 1 percent of the population who prefers standard time.
Now that I have coffee in hand, it’s time to plan my week. Remember when I said last week was not so busy? And then, life laughed at me. Time to try again.
Glad to be linking up to the Happy Homemaker Monday post hosted by Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom. Go check it out!
Breakfast Time: What Is On The Plate This Morning
So far just coffee and my stomach is starting to complain about it a bit. Later, I plan on cooking cinnamon rolls (from a tube) and frying up some bacon. I may go ahead and eat my last yogurt first, Tropical Escape. Oh, how I could use one about right now!
Right Now I Am
Waiting for J’s friends to wake up so I can make breakfast (and stop tip-toeing around). Also, trying to consume enough coffee to properly be awake. We celebrated J’s birthday with his friends a bit early this month by letting him have some friends stay over. By the way, Daylight Savings has no effect on the time tween and teenage boys go to bed during an overnight.
The Weather Outside
Cold! 31 degrees and now cloudy, I know I saw a bit of blue earlier this morning. Supposed to have a high of a balmy 46 degrees today. It was in the 60s on Friday, typical Midwest weather.
Looking Around The House
G had friends stay over Friday and Saturday, three of J’s friends spent the night last night (no school today for teacher work day) so…let’s skip this part.
On Today’s To-Do List
- Finish This Post
- Finish my book due back to the library tomorrow (it’s new so no renewal option)
- Plan out some blog posts
- Clean out fridge before trash day tomorrow (been neglecting it for a couple of weeks)
The Four Tendencies by Gretchen Rubin. Interesting theories. The quiz I took (in the book) said I was pretty evenly split between being the Obliger (5 points) and the Questioner (4 points) with a tiny bit of Rebel (2) thrown in for good measure. Except, of course, my main tendencies don’t overlap according to her chart. Not really surprised to find myself in some void category.
And the on-line version just pegged me as a full Rebel. Now, I’m really confused. Better finish the book I guess.
Finished up The 6th Extinction by James Rollins and loved it. Really interesting theories in this one. Hoping there might still be some books by this author I haven’t read on the library shelves.
On The TV Today
No idea. Probably nothing requiring any concentration. Maybe I’ll finish re-watching season 4 (random) of Doctor Who while folding laundry. Or maybe The Bourne Supremacy since I watched The Bourne Identity (Yes, again. Favorite movies are favorite movies.) on Saturday afternoon.
On The Menu This Week
My goal this week is to somehow get us back to eating a little healthier. Halloween followed by birthday party (even small gatherings require cake) followed by Thanksgiving coming soon…I need to get a handle on things.
Of course, the complete derailment from the menu plan last week also means lots of carry over items this week.
MONDAY: Rotisserie Chicken, Salad
TUESDAY: Ribs in crock pot (not an ideal cold weather meal but I’d like my freezer space back) *I have a 4p.m. hair appointment*
WEDNESDAY: Chicken legs, potatoes *I work 8 to 4*
THURSDAY: Fazolis for school fundraiser *I work 8 to 5*
FRIDAY: No idea, probably leftovers (J wanted tacos last night so I may freeze those leftovers as option) *Possibly out for family birthday but I haven’t heard any plans yet*
New Recipe I Tried Or Want To Try
I’ve saved this Ham and Cheese Crescent Bake (Yes, I know not healthy) to my Something Different for Dinner Board on Pinterest. Looks like a perfect dinner for the boys and I one night while my husband is off hunting.
One Of My Simple Pleasures
Playing around with my camera although I’ve noticed I much prefer to be in the moment when stuff is happening so rarely take photos of people.
Favorite Photo From The Internet Or Camera
Trouble narrowing it down this week so I have four to share! Two in honor of the time change and two from the birthday fun.
The world to be a kinder, gentler place.
