Happy Homemaker Monday, Turkey Week!

Happy Thanksgiving Week!  It’s going to be a short but busy week around here.

Do you have big Thanksgiving plans?  We’re not hosting but I decided to do a full on house-cleaning any way.  It’s much-needed.

I’m thankful as always to be joining in with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom for the weekly Happy Homemaker Monday link-up.  These posts certainly help keep me on track.

Breakfast Time…what is on the plate this morning

Woke up to yesterday’s Chinese food feuding with my tummy so I didn’t eat for quite a while.  Just had a Chobani Flip Yogurt, a banana flavored one.  Hoping my minimal coffee drinking doesn’t cause a huge headache later.

Right Now I Am

Sitting down to write out this post, thinking I may need to try a another cup of coffee, letting the mildew cleaner do its thing in the bathroom, and letting the washer and dryer do their thing with a couple of loads of laundry.

The Weather Outside

WINDY! It’s supposed to be a warm week, 60s this afternoon, not quite as warm tomorrow (our weather is always back and forth), 55 and sunny on Thanksgiving.  Almost 70 on Friday.

Looking Around The House

I’m just in the mood to clean.  It really doesn’t look awful but my mood is one where I’m sick of everything and want it to be a bit less chaotic.  I know I need to do a huge de-cluttering project to even get started bringing the house to the place I want and at this point, need it to be.  A project for 2018 may be calling my name.

On Today’s To-Do List

Oddly, after waking up sick, I came back from the school run, motivated to get things done. Fridge and Freezer Clean Out

  1. Clean Out Pantry
  2. Clear out fridge and freezer
  3. Clean Shower In Main Bathroom With Heavy Duty Mildew Cleaner (Love the Method stuff but sometimes you need to bring out the big guns for the truly nasty jobs)
  4. Wash all bedding (In process)
  5. Pay rest of bills
  6. Clear off my dresser
  7. Clean out cat box (may postpone until tomorrow morning as that’s trash day)
  8. Clean off this desk
  9. Make a list for what I want to do in the house
  10. Go back to grocery store.  Oh what a comedy of errors!  Couldn’t find my deli meat (small purchase due to short week) so went back to store at 9p.m. last night, got refund.  Returned home and realized it was in the bottom of the ONE sack I didn’t think to check.  So now, I have to go give them their money back.

Currently Reading

May continue to trudge along through Captivology but will more likely return it unfinished. I did read and really enjoy Warcross by Marie Lu over the weekend.  Have the first novel in the Sigma Force series by James Rollins on order.

On The TV Today

No idea.  If I watch anything today, it will likely be the new (to Netflix) episodes of The Great British Baking Show Season 4 or maybe a couple of shows on my CW app on the phone.  I did miss The Flash last week and G hooked me on Riverdale so now I need to catch up on the latest season of that.

On The Menu This Week

Benefit of a shorter week, less menu planning.

MONDAY: Spaghetti, meatballs, garlic bread, and salad.  By request.

TUESDAY: Pancakes and bacon.  Or I may make them eat French toast from the freezer.  I’ll be baking pies.  Caramel Apple and Chocolate.

WEDNESDAY: With Family

THURSDAY: Thanksgiving!

FRIDAY: Thanksgiving leftovers

If I Have A Few Minutes To Myself, I will

Try to sneak over to a local nature center and take some pictures of the wild turkeys that visit their bird feeders.  Or just breathe!

New Recipe I Tried Or Want To Try This Week

Found some whipped cream cheese in the fridge that we need to eat by Saturday.  Looking for a recipe to use it.  Any suggestions?

Looking Forward To This Week

Thanksgiving, a break in our schedules, spending time together

Favorite Photo From The Camera

Took way too many photos at the park on Thursday! Here are few more: I was a bit late, this drive (or walk) was so much prettier just a week or two before…
