Happy Homemaker Monday

So, it’s apparently International Napping Day. Something to do with Daylight Savings Time, perhaps? Around here, it’s national I want to move somewhere they don’t do this nonsense day.

It’s also Monday and a half-day work day for me in the afternoon. Don’t worry I didn’t get to sleep in either. School days don’t really allow for that. Going to attempt to make this a quick post as I have quite a few errands I’d like to cram into the morning hours.

Still, I need a plan so I’m happy to take the time for a Happy Homemaker Monday post and link it up with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom.

Currently Reading

Just the March magazines. Need to start a new book.

On The TV Today

Probably just The Voice, maybe the show after if I can stay awake.

The Weather Outside Is

Cold. Cloudy and feels like 30. I’m wearing a sweater to work. Spring is supposed to make another attempt later this week, looking forward to that!

On The Menu This Week

A fresh new coat of paint in the kitchen, lighting wasn’t great when I took the photo.

Let’s start out by looking at last week and I’ve decided to add in our weekend meals for my reference though I still won’t be planning them since our weekends tend to be unpredictable.

Last Week’s Menu Plan:

MONDAY: Post went up on Monday night after we’d already had dinner (it was an “on your own” night) *I worked 7:45-4:15*

TUESDAY: Spaghetti  *I worked 7:15-3:45*

WEDNESDAY: Slow Cooker Broccoli Beef My husband decided to paint the kitchen meaning we ate out (actually, they ate take-out from Captain D’s and I worked late, came home and ate snacks) *I ended up working 3-6* (I did finally serve the broccoli with frozen pizza for lunch on Sunday)

THURSDAY: Chicken legs and salad Rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and salad

FRIDAY: McDonald’s *I worked 7:45-4:15*

SATURDAY: My husband made the boys pancakes and bacon (I didn’t eat as I’d had an upset stomach on Friday night. Could blame the arches but I was already feeling a bit queasy before we had dinner so probably just a bug.)

SUNDAY: Soup (from a can, Ramen noodles for G who has never been a fan of soup), baked potatoes

On To This Week:

I’ve declared it eat out of the fridge/pantry, and freezer week!

MONDAY: Tacos, Rice *I work 1-5*

TUESDAY: Chicken legs, twice baked potatoes, salad

WEDNESDAY:  Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef *Mom’s Night Out*

THURSDAY:  Probably OUT, maybe Subway *I work 8:00-4:00* *Band concert for G*

FRIDAY: Most likely leftovers, maybe shrimp and baked sweet potatoes *I work 8:00-4:00*

If I Have A Few Minutes To Myself, I Will

no idea, maybe take a nap?

What I’m Knitting, Sewing, Or Creating

Nothing. I would like to get back outside if the weather would cooperate!

New Recipe I Tried Or Want To Try This Week

I have my eye on these spinach muffins for St. Patrick’s Day….(note: I found this recipe first but am still imperfectly attempting that whole avoiding refined sugar thing.)

Favorite Photo From The Camera

After working quite a bit last week, then not feeling well over the weekend, not too many great pictures on the camera. Didn’t even put up a bird watching post on Saturday or Sunday.

This poor goose was sitting on a hill during our out of the blue snow storm (nothing stuck) last Monday. Took his photo with my phone through my car windshield… Ventured out in the backyard on Sunday for a quick minute to try to capture a few noisy, returning grackles. This was the best photo from another overcast day.

Quote For The Week

    ohhh napping sound wonderful! So I think I will use national napping day for an excuse to have one! Love the picture of the goose! Praying you have a great week!

      I had to work yesterday afternoon so missed out but I’m sure tempted to put off all my errands and celebrate national napping day a day late. Hope you have a great week as well!

      Some days are just like that. I could use one of those but we’re out of all those little (big) things like soap and food (well, “teenager” food) that mean I can’t put off my errands any longer. Thank you. Hope you have a fantastic week!

When you find that “somewhere they don’t do this nonsense day” place, let me know where it is and I’ll move with you! Bravo!!! Your paint job is nice! I really like the color! Have a great week ahead, my friend! Blessings! <3

      Thanks. Well, we do have choices: Arizona, Hawaii, and parts of Illinois and Indiana. If I could just get the family on board, LOL! Thank you, I do love the color although I also liked our previous kitchen color but my husband didn’t care for it. Hope your Tuesday has been off to an amazing start!

    A few of your answers really resonated with me… especially how you capitalized COFFEE…I get that for sure…. coffee is my first line of defense for the day! and I am very inclined today to take that nap you spoke of… I havent been sleeping through the night lately!!!

    1. Jean Post author

      Clearly, I needed more coffee at some point this week as I missed your comment! Hope you slept better this week and had a wonderful weekend!

    Daylight savings time always messes me up to! My wish is that after they change it back in November, they leave it alone!!!

    I hope that spring sticks this next time. Have a GREAT week.

      I hope they leave it alone as well, I’ve been mixed up all week on what day/what time…of course, that could have just been me! We had a few nice days last week but then, a cold weekend. Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
