I had quite an eventful weekend, to be honest, a messed up washer, a flooded kitchen and pantry and two dead mice. Can you beat that excitement? Haha
Right, let's get into our week at a glance and see what is coming up.
The weather outside is::::36 degrees and clear right now. We've had some pretty cold weather, but this week we are actually supposed to go up into the 70's. Goodness!!!
On the breakfast plate this morning::::Had a big cup of coffee with White Chocolate Raspberry Creamer, and 2 pieces of Cinnamon Raisin toast with butter. Yummy!!!
As I look outside my window:::The sun just came up and from my bedroom window I get the perfect view. The birds are chirping, and the yard is bathed in a gorgeous golden light. I do love mornings.
Right now I am::::Sitting in bed, Lola is laying next to me sleeping and Bella is on her bed on the ground snoring away. I'm typing up this post and also watching The Voice Portugal on my computer.
As I look around the house::::Need to do some tidying up in the living room, the family room is actually tidy. It's starting to look a lot like Christmas, we have our trees up and some small decorations out. I'm hoping to get everything else out this week.
On today's to do list::::Laundry....Have a load in the dryer at the moment, also have two sets of bed sheets to wash. Cleaning....In the kitchen, Unload the dishwasher and reload with breakfast dishes.
In the living room....Vacuum, dust and tidy up a bit, put out some more decorations, make sure the Christmas tree has water.
In the bedrooms....make the beds, pick up and tidy up, open curtains and blinds and windows to let in some fresh air.
In the bathrooms....clean the toilets, sinks and mirrors.
Homeschooling....prepare the lessons, check grades.
Cooking.....for lunch I'm thinking soup, I'll have tomato and basil and the kids will probably choose the chicken noodle.
Happening this week::::Monday.....School, housework, writing Christmas cards
Tuesday....Make fruit cake for Christmas, Zebra Sprinkles Review
Wednesday....Finish decorating inside
Thursday.....Matcha Green Tea Powder Review

Whatever else is on the list that needs watching

What I am creating at the moment::::A home. Still trying to get completely moved in and work on projects around the house. The past few months have flown by and even though we've been in this house and in Texas for 6 months, we've had so much family over and so many things going on that we haven't really been able to work on anything.
New recipe I tried or want to try this week::::Nothing new, I haven't tried any recipes in a long time. I honestly need to though.
