If you’re local to the Kansas City area, you’d have to be living under a rock to not know the Chiefs finally won a play-off game. And even then, you’d probably still know.
Great story here about a homeless man who helped a player get to the game on time.
The last time they won a play-off game was in 1994. Way before the existence of my blog. My marriage (I think I was possibly dating my husband) and my kids. So just a “few” years ago. Our area is just a tiny bit excited. If I was super cool, I’d show you the Chiefs snow sculpture I built like the ones on the news. However, I’m not and didn’t build anything.
Closer to this corner of KC, I did fall on my behind taking the trash out on Saturday morning. Ouch! Taking the trash out because J woke up puking. Yuck! And my husband left super early this morning for Oklahoma as his grandpa took a turn for the worse last week. Sigh.
Time to plan the week ahead as it looks like it’ll be a dicey one. Linking up with Sandra from Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom. Be sure to check it out her blog!
Snowy morning indeed! Not snowing but lots of snow left-over on the ground. Normal (for January) temperatures. Another storm on the way for the weekend. Local kids (well, mine) are annoyed with the weekend storms as they want a snow day. So do I!
Right Now I Am
Working on this post in a super quiet house while J is still sleeping. And still running a fever. I’m afraid he has the flu. Relieved my husband sent a text to let me know he arrived safely in Oklahoma.
I need to let the little gray cat back inside soon. Also, thinking about all the things I’d like to get accomplished around here today.
On My Reading Pile
Last week I read The Next Person You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom and loved it. Didn’t think I’d be disappointed as he’s one of my favorite authors. Started in on The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. Watching her show first set a better tone to start reading her book, I think.
On My TV
Regular TV: God Friended Me and Seal Team and football, of course!
Netflix: Finished The Magicians, tried starting Narcos but found it a bit too intense. Re-watched some of the Marie Kondo show.
Favorite Blog Post
Two for this week. First, my friend, Carrie, over at Northwoods Scrapbook, returned from her break! Then, I enjoyed reading Rachel’s weekly update on her yearly goals. Inspiring me to perhaps do something weekly with my word of the year. More on that, tomorrow!
On The Menu
Tough category this week. Shopping the house for it. A lot of last week’s menu didn’t work quite as planned. This week’s menu may get shuffled around a lot depending on what happens this week.
MONDAY: Probably chicken soup for J (and maybe me), BBQ sandwich for G (from freezer)
TUESDAY: Chicken legs (if J feels up to it), salad (probably just for G and myself)
WEDNESDAY: French Toast sticks and scrambled eggs
THURSDAY: Frozen Pizza *J has a baritone lesson if he feels better and the weather is decent*
FRIDAY: Country Style Ribs in Crock Pot *Boys off school for teacher work day*
On My To Do List
- Pay bills
- Clean off this desk
- Marie Kondo my clothes (yes, I’m using her name as a verb)
- Get end of January and February birthday cards ready
Some day…I will have something for this category!
Looking Around The House
It’s not too awful for a Monday morning after we were home all weekend. Just the usual things need attention.
From The Camera
The photos below are from yesterday, when I went for a short walk.
On My Prayer List
Family in Oklahoma including my husband’s grandpa, family here including J, hoping he recovers swiftly from this flu bug. The many in our area still without power from the weekend storm. Everyone reading this blog.
Quote For The Week
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. (Matthew 6:34)
What’s on your agenda for the week ahead?
