I didn’t wake up with a fever (thank goodness!). However, I did wake up with an awful case of spring fever! These milder days between the winter weather make me so ready to be out in the yard. I’m ready for some green grass on the ground and green leaves on the trees!
Taking a break from a morning of running J to school, chopping vegetables, and a *tiny* bit of cleaning to put together my weekly planning post. Joining in as always with Sandra from Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom.
Honestly, even as I gripe about having spring fever, not bad for February. Mostly in the low 40’s all week. A chance of something on Wednesday, rain, snow, or both depending on the TV channel. I see a 47 degrees for Saturday. Sold!
How I Am Feeling This Morning
Pretty good and motivated to get lots done today. I think I must have slept pretty well as I woke up just before the alarm today.
On My Mind
The many things I’m hoping to accomplish today. What our Valentine’s Day is going to be (my husband has to work late all week including Friday). A bit of panic about this week starting the 2 week countdown to my long-term substitute teaching time at work.
On My To Do List
- Wash J’s bedding (started!)
- Clean and chop up vegetables in fridge DONE
- Clean out fridge/freezer
- Go to grocery store (weekly thing though I’ll have to shift this back to Sunday nights soon)
- Clean off the top of this desk, sort through some bills and papers (pay bills)
- Schedule some blog posts
- Vacuum basement
- Valentine gifts for my husband and the boys (nothing big…probably just some candy)
On The Breakfast Plate
Apple cinnamon oatmeal, two sausage patties (left-over from Saturday’s breakfast), and coffee
On My Reading Pile
I finished Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate last week. And I loved it! Been a while since I read a book where I lost track of everything around me. Also, read one called Bad Memory (Jessica Shaw, #2) by Lisa Gray. Also enjoyable, especially the bits of late 80’s nostalgia sprinkled throughout the story. Now, I’ve started on The Book of Ichigo Ichie: The Art of Making the Most of Every Moment, The Japanese Way by Hector Garcia Puigcerver and Francesc Miralles.
Hoarders. Yes, still.
On The Menu This Week
I want to try and maybe plan some double meals this week so I can freeze things for busier days.
MONDAY: Chicken sausages, rice (or left-over spaghetti/meatballs) *J has a baritone lesson at 6*
TUESDAY: Tacos or maybe taco salad *making a double batch of taco meat* MNO for me
WEDNESDAY: Steak bites, baked potatoes *I work 7:15 to ?10 maybe*
THURSDAY: Copy Cat Chik-Fil-A sandwiches *J has pep band*
FRIDAY: Roast in the crock pot *J has pep band*
From The Camera
I ended up working quite a bit more and longer hours than expected last week (a teacher had the flu) and falling quite short of my “pick up my camera every day” goal for 2020.
Looking Around The House
Did I mention I’ve been watching lots of episodes of Hoarders? It looks pretty good. Also, my husband’s birthday was Saturday so I cleaned for that.
Chore I’m Not Looking Forward To Today or This Week
Got the big hassle out of the way over the weekend (rescheduling jury duty…SIGH). I’m not too excited to start sorting through all the papers on this desk today but I will be excited for a clean space again.
To Relax This Week I Will
Read in my book, have a cup of tea, and probably binge-watch some more episodes of Hoarders.
On My Prayer List
Family, friends, my co-workers and the students at my school.
Devotional/Bible Verse/Quote For The Week
I read something very hurtful on Facebook earlier this week. And it made me quite angry (and sad). The temptation to type this particular bible verse in all caps was very great. I didn’t, choosing instead to take a deep breath (or 10) and ignore it.
However, the verse is a great reminder for everyone (including myself).
And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? (Matthew 7:3)
What’s on your agenda for this week? Do you have spring fever as well?
