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.

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
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*
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)
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
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.
