Has it really only been a week between Mondays? Feels as if years have passed as the last week was a long one! Topped off by the adrenaline pumping, heart-breaking Chiefs game last night.
Maybe next year, Chiefs. We still love you. I’ve already seen the comparisons tossed around to the 2014/2015 Royals. And how the baseball team came back and won the World Series in 2015. Maybe they took a page out of that playbook. At least, spring training is soon enough. Oh, baseball weather, how I miss you!
Speaking of the weather, let’s get to the categories our host, Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom provides for the link up each week.
Still sweater weather.
Cloudy all week. Today, warmer but I can already hear the wind. Good chance of rain (maybe turning into snow) tomorrow. Good news, if we want a blizzard around here, we’ll have to head to Dairy Queen. Not sure how far we’ll have to head to find some sunshine.
Right Now I Am
Working on this post while the boys (plus a few friends of G) sleep. No school due to the holiday. Also, trying to stay out-of-the-way while my husband fixes the garbage disposal (always something).
Bit too early and I haven’t had enough coffee yet. Really, I’m just hoping for this week to be a bit calmer with everyone healthy.
On My Reading Pile
Finished The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. Tried to renew my books only to see 12 people discovered my large-print edition trick and 22 (!) people were waiting on Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Start Up by John Carreyrou. No renewals allowed.
No need to worry as I read Carreyrou’s book in a day. Non-fiction but read like a fiction thriller. Then, I noticed an e-book I’d wanted to read on sale for 99 cents so I also read Better in the Morning by Fern Ronay. A shorter, lighter read about a young professional guided by her late grandparents as she makes career and romance decisions.
And I guess for returning my books on time, library karma gifted me with finding a brand new copy of An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen just sitting on the shelf! I’ll start it today.
On My TV
Not sure. Whatever I can find on Netflix (I finished Stay Here, an interesting one about remodeling home rentals). And Seal Team (hopefully, it’s back this Wednesday).
Favorite Blog Post
Not a blog post but a really interesting article entitled How One Cup of Coffee Inspired a Journey of a Thousand Thank Yous by A.J. Jacobs.
On The Menu
“Everyone wants to be a food critic but no one wants to cook the food.” said to my family about their obsession with watching Gordon Ramsay. Decided it’s time to go back to “take it or leave it” dinner options. Lots of question marks this week as I still need to go through the fridge/freezer and grocery shop.
MONDAY: Deconstructed Cabbage Rolls (found a recipe to try while cleaning out the cookbooks)
TUESDAY: Pork chops, baked potatoes *I work 10-4* *G has pep band*
WEDNESDAY: Spaghetti? *I work 2-3:45*
THURSDAY: Lemon chicken? *I work 8:15* *J has a baritone lesson*
FRIDAY: No idea *I work 8:30-4:30*
On My To-Do List
- Everything from last week except clearing the clothes
- Finish clearing out books
- Start on clearing out paper
- Write and schedule a few blog posts
- Give my unavailable dates to my work
Bird feeders from recycle materials. Not pretty but functional.
Looking Around The House
Not awful. Needs a good “everybody needs to get out so I can clean” cleaning.
From The Camera
The birds are back!
On My Prayer List
My husband’s grandfather and family in Oklahoma, friends going through some hard things, family members who spend too much time with politics, and all the politicians to find some peaceful solutions to their differences. And of course, everyone reading this blog.
Quote For The Week
