Today felt like a proper Monday. Hard time rousing everyone, myself included, out of bed. Seemed much to early as I headed into work. So it’s evening as I finally sit down to plan my week.
Time to link up with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom for a Happy Homemaker Monday post. Hoping I finish this before bedtime arrives.
Perfect scenery for a sleepy Monday. Clouds most of the day with cold wind and varying amounts of rain, sleet, and snow falling. Thankfully, the warmer weekend meant nothing stuck to our roads. We’re supposed to get more of the same with falling temps so who knows what might happen overnight. I do hope we get a decent snow. If it is going to snow, I want to see a fully, fluffy blanket of white. It’s supposed to be in the 40s and 50s all week so anything we do get tonight should melt quickly.
As I Look Outside My Window
It’s already dark outside so I see nothing but black.
Right Now I Am
Thinking I’m cold, also ready for dinner, and simply waiting…while typing up this post, of course.
Thinking And Pondering
After working at a preschool all day, my mind is mush. I love all those kids but at the end of the day I’m done. Should have had more sleep, probably should wait until after dinner for posting. Also, I’m hoping the Immune boosting vitamins we all took will keep our family healthy. So much sickness in our local area, it’s scary.
On My Bedside Table
I cleaned it last week! Still it contains a bottle of Cocoa butter lotion, one shirt (no idea why), and a few preschool books.
On My TV Tonight
We’ve been watching Better Late Than Never. It’s about the travel adventures of Terry Bradshaw, William Shatner, Henry Winkler, George Foreman, and Jeff Dye. It’s so fun to watch! And we may finish up season 2 of Humans over on Amazon Prime.
The heater blowing. The rest of the house seems suspiciously quiet but my teenagers are just hanging out in their rooms (what teenagers do when they aren’t eating).
On The Menu This Week
Perhaps I’ll do better with it all this week….G did have a stomach bug (not fun for him but it was fairly mild thank goodness and we’ve avoided it) last week so the menu just didn’t work well. Time to try again.
MONDAY: We’re having spaghetti! *I worked 8-4*
TUESDAY: The pork chops will finally meet the crock pot *G has pep band*
WEDNESDAY: Chicken Legs
THURSDAY: I’ve been craving waffles so maybe….or I can still pull the French Toast out of the freezer
FRIDAY: Not sure…probably out or maybe leftovers

My Simple Pleasure
a cup of tea and a good book
Lesson Learned The Past Week
Just because a book was popular doesn’t necessarily mean I’ll enjoy it. Suffice it to say Eat, Pray, Love left me unimpressed.

Family members, all those who are sick, friends and their children
