Monday already......8:27 AM
This weekend went by a bit too fast for my liking, I was JUST getting into the quietness and sleeping in and BAM it's monday morning with another hectic week ahead.
So my kids are both sick with a cold, Jasmine is actually back to school this morning after being home thursday and friday last week. She passed the cold to Nicholas who in turn passed it to me.....I've told them I'm not interested in this kind of game but they just don't listen LOL
It's a given, when one of the kids is sick you KNOW you're going to get it too, I believe it's in the Mommy Handbook though I may have skipped that part, but I sure learnt fast and the HARD way LOL
As I'm writing this entry, I got an instant message from my brother Paul who is enjoying 2 weeks in Margate, South Africa. He was telling me all about the fun they're having and all the wonderful pictures they've taken, he'll be sending them to me later and then during their stay he will send more each day so that I can share with you all. I'm SO excited because it's like a little bit of home that I get to see and you all can enjoy too....so when I get new pics I'll be sharing them here on my blog.
Tomorrow they're heading to Durban for the day and going to Ushaka Marine World....now I'm even MORE jealous LOL
They might also go by this HUGE Mall called The Gateway, look at the wonderful attractions they have, indoor surfing WOW.
I have some pictures and will post them later today after I get them all organized.
This morning I got my coffee and then headed on over to I'm an Organizing Junkie for her Menu Plan Monday, I swear it was 6:30 am and I thought I would be one of the first on the list.....ummmmm I guess no one else is sleeping anymore because I ended up being #44 LOL
I managed to visit all the blogs but everytime I would hit refresh there were more....I finally gave up after #75 I just got a headache trying to visit all the Menu Plan ladies, so if I didn't make it to yours don't worry I will try to get them in tonight or tomorrow morning.
If you want to see my Menu Plan for this week it's on my Food Blog and I've posted the recipe for the Portuguese Piri Piri Chicken I'm making for dinner.
I want you to go over and check out Fishcreek house, it's one of my favorite blogs and today she's sharing a couple of recipes that are sure to have your mouth watering, she also talks about Earth Day and Organic food and products. Great post!!!
There's another blog I want you to go visit, it's Anita's My Country Cottage Garden and it's written in both German and English. This lady has a magic Green Thumb, she has the most beautiful gardens and always shares pictures which leave you in awe.
With that, I am out of here, got a little sick one to take care of, have a great day everyone.
For dinner tonight I'm making Portuguese Chicken Piri Piri, the recipe is up on my food blog if you're interested. It's pretty much a grilled chicken but it's been marinated for a day in garlic, lemon, olive oil and pepper flakes, it's really really good.
