Wait. What? Yes, it’s snowing around here for the second time in less than a week! I can recall an October snow quite a few years ago (BK…not Burger King, before kids) but my mind struggles with trying to remember the last time I saw it snow in November.
As pretty as it is out there, it’s much too soon. Good day to sit inside and drink coffee and cocoa (starting with the coffee) and plan my week. Joining up with the other fabulous bloggers who link up with our host, Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom.
The Weather Outside
I snapped this on my drive through the park on Friday morning after last Thursday’s random snowfall:
Today, it’s cold and snowing! We’re under a Winter Weather advisory until 6 p.m. this evening. Cold tomorrow as well. We do get back to the upper 40’s on Wednesday and 50’s by Friday. No more snow after today.
On The Breakfast Plate
So far only coffee. I’m starting my post early before I take J to school. Probably going to have a piece of toasted Guatemalan banana bread when I return home. And more coffee.
As I Look Outside My Window
Right Now I Am
back to working on this post after pausing to take J to school and eat a piece of banana bread. Roads were okay, not great but okay.
Looking Around The House
Surprisingly, not too awful. Needs the actual cleaning but the surfaces aren’t as cluttered as normal.
On Today’s To-Do List
- Go to the grocery store (Should have stuck to my original plan and went last night)
- Pay bills
- Make birthday party invitations for J’s birthday get-together (He’s only having 2 friends but I said I’d make him a couple of invitations to hand them)
- Figure out what else we’re going to give him for his birthday
- Finish up the laundry
- Clean the house
- Return/renew library books
- Make a list of what I need for Thanksgiving next week (!)
Kind is the New Classy by Candace Cameron Bure. Think with this one I’ll have officially read every one of her books except the one actually on my “to read in 2018” list. I do like her style very well and may put her books on my birthday/Christmas wish list.
Over the weekend, I also quickly read my Amazon Prime Kindle First pick of Rapid Falls by Amber Cowie. It kept me engaged but I didn’t care for the story at all.
On The TV Today
Not sure. Probably just The Voice and Manifest tonight. May spend today catching up on some Netflix/Amazon Prime series. Last night I caught God Friended Me for the first time. Seems someone in the HHM group mentioned it. Really enjoyed it!
On The Menu This Week
Planned my menu loosely around what I know I have in the house. Most of it with the exception of the birthday request may change after my grocery store trip.
MONDAY: Ham steaks and fried potatoes, salad *MNO*
TUESDAY: Chicken Cacciatore, spaghetti
WEDNESDAY: Maybe pork chops, baked potatoes *I work 2-3:45*
THURSDAY: Tacos per request, chocolate cake with white icing *J’s birthday & baritone lesson*
SATURDAY: J’s friends coming over for his birthday. Maybe Subway?
What I Am Creating At The Moment
So many ideas…so little talent.
