And saying goodbye to not only October but very soon to all those annoying political ads! Just one more week of those. Personally, I cannot wait. Living so near a state-line, we get a double-dose of the “fun.”
Who needs Halloween? Want to be scared? Just watch a few of these ads. Good grief, Charlie Brown! A few are also humorous. Depending on the side talking, we’re either going to “lose our country” (not sure where it’s going) or “take back our country” (whoa, I didn’t know it was missing!).
And my favorite (admittedly J and I do have a nice laugh over this Kansas side ad each morning)…risk electing a candidate who’s (play scary music) “almost a socialist!” (said with mock horror!). Admittedly, I won’t vote for that one. Or her opponent since I live in a different state.
That’s about the scope of political talk you’ll find on my blog. New subject. Color for the week is RED. How about them Chiefs? How about those Red Sox?
Enough chit-chat, time to plan the week ahead. Good thing Sandra hosts this link up over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom each week keeping us motivated to plan our weeks!
I’ll take it! We’re supposed to have a high of 72 today. It’s been simply beautiful. The rest of the week slowly cools us down and a chance of rain tomorrow.
On The Breakfast Plate
The usual. A Chobani Flip yogurt (Mixed berry morning) and too much coffee.
As I Look Outside My Window
Right Now I Am
Sitting down to finish this post after taking a break to run Jason to school, start dinner in the crock pot, and throw the prep dishes in the dishwasher.
As I Look Around The House
I see so many projects I want to start or finish that it’s a bit overwhelming. Plus, the usual “I need to clean up a bit” stuff.
On Today’s To-Do List
- Everything for last week is still on the list.
- Get with J about what he wants to do for his birthday
- Get Halloween candy/treats for the boys
- Find my Halloween t-shirt
I’m back to non-fiction this week and reading Good Faith, Being A Christian When Society Thinks You’re Irrelevant And Extreme by David Kinnaman and Gabe Lyons. Admittedly, I started this one with my guard up a bit but it’s speaking to my heart and challenging me. I’m about halfway through it.
On The TV Today
Not sure. I’ll probably watch a bit of The Voice with my husband and then, maybe Manifest (though I missed last week).
On The Menu This Week
For some reason, I have a decent menu plan this week. Feels nice to feel on top of it in this area for a change.
MONDAY: Ribs in the crock pot (and they’re already in there!) corn on the cob, salad *I work 1-3:45*
TUESDAY: Chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes *husband’s request minus the okra, not in season*
WEDNESDAY: Chili, cornbread (G will have a hot dog) *I work 1:30-4* *Happy Halloween!*
THURSDAY: Salsa Verde Chicken (crock pot: chicken covered in jarred Salsa Verde) made into burritos (J will have leftover chili)
FRIDAY: OUT *Taking G on a college tour*
What I Am Creating At The Moment
Nothing. I’ve admitted defeat on my 31 Days Series. Love the idea of it still but the timing just didn’t work. Not giving up trying to live the Hygge way, just on trying to blog about it every single day.
Quote For The Week
(referenced in the book I’m reading this week)
Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. (Hebrews 10:24)
What’s on your agenda for the week ahead?
