Anyone out there have a secret formula they would like to share? It usually doesn't take me this long to get back on track, but this year, I don't know what the problem is. I need to figure it out though because we're pretty much half way through the month of January and I have two posts to show for it. Shameful!!!
The weather outside is::::Woke up to snow again, and it's I think about 30 degrees, or at least it was last time I checked. I don't mind the snow itself, I mind the slushy dirty mess it becomes and the slipping and sliding that ensues while driving and walking on it.
On the breakfast plate this morning::::Right now, a cup of coffee with Butter Toffee Creamer, and as soon as I'm done with this post, I think I'm going to have some toast. My favorite toast is sliced French Bread, it comes out nice and crunchy and always reminds me of the toast we would have for breakfast over in Portugal.
As I look outside my window:::White, slushy mess. It does look pretty when you see all the trees covered in snow :)
Right now I am::::As always, in the living room typing up this post. I have my pj's still on and a blanket over my legs because it's so cold. My husband is awake too and is over on his computer playing a game and checking out Facebook.
As I look around the house::::It is actually clean and tidy, just have to pick up a few xbox controls that my son left laying on the couches. I do really like the morning time, the house always looks so cozy and warm.
On today's to do list::::Laundry....Have two loads to get through. It is just never ending, and there have been a few times that I was on top of it and really thought "I got this", only to be overwhelmed again by the laundry basket.
Cleaning....In the kitchen....Already emptied out the dishwasher, just have to refill it, as the day goes by. The counters have a few items on them that need to be picked up and put away. I really want to get the floors mopped but I'm not sure if I'll get around to that today. *fingers crossed*
In the living room....Vacuum rug, mop the wood floors. Open blinds. Tidy up couches.
In the bedrooms....make the beds, open blinds, vacuum.
In the bathrooms....Toilets, sinks and mirrors.
Homeschooling....End of semester is looming, have to make sure everyone is on track. The only ones I'm a little worried about are the girls because their work load is out of this world.
Cooking.....For lunch we have quite a few leftovers that I need to get through. Dinner will be Mushroom Swiss Burgers.
Currently reading::::Nothing, still waiting on my book to come in for a review, hopefully soon.
On the TV today::::Probably Star Trek tonight with the hubby.
I do want to watch Ascension, started the first part yesterday and then had to stop it, but hoping to get through it all today.
On the menu this week::::Monday - Mushroom Swiss Burgers
Tuesday - Chicken Casserole
Wednesday - Spaghetti Bolognese
Thursday - * Grocery Shopping*
What I am creating at the moment::::Nothing, like I said, I have quite a few WIPs that I should be finishing up, just haven't had a chance.
New recipe I tried or want to try this week::::I tried a yummy Chocolate chip skillet cookie. I need to get the recipe up on the food blog, hoping I remember to do that today. But here is a picture.....
Favorite photo from the camera::::
Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::Every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.
PLEASE, don't add links to this list that are not part of the Happy Homemaker Monday. I've asked numerous times, and I'm frankly quite tired of having to remove links to other posts that shouldn't be in this list. Please be respectful of my request!
