Good morning everyone, how was your weekend?
Mine was, once again, busy. Folks, I'm so ready for a relaxing quiet weekend of doing absolutely nothing. I think I can count on one hand, how many of those I've had since moving to Texas. Good grief.
Anyway, let's see what is going on this week.
We've had wonderful warm spring/summer like weather, and I'm very much enjoying it. There's some rain expected on Wednesday and Thursday but nothing too bad, at least for the moment they're not expecting anything bad, but in this State you never know.
On my reading pile:::
I actually started Diana Gabaldon's Lord John Series. I wanted something along the lines of Outlander since I have to wait so long for the new season to come out. I've heard very good things about this Lord John series, so hopefully I enjoy it.
Movies or Shows I watched this weekend:::
I've been catching up on Reign, also tried to watch a few on the DVR list so I can clear that out.
On my TV:::
Dr Phil (if it's a new one)
Recorded the first part of the new Casey Anthony documentary that started last night. I remember this case very well, I followed it closely, watched the trial and bawled my eyes out when she was found not guilty, so I'm interested in what this new documentary may show.
On the menu for this week:::
Hamburger Noodle Bake
Meatballs in Brown Gravy, Mashed Potatoes
Olive Garden Minestrone Soup and Breadsticks
Chicken with tomatoes and carrots, Rice, Butternut Squash
*Grocery Shopping....new menu will kick in*
Easter....Deviled Eggs, Honey Ham, Potato Bake, Vegetables, Fried Fish, Pickled Fish, Hot Cross Buns
On my to do list:::
Monday - Clean the house from yesterday's get together
Tuesday - Finally continuing with spring cleaning, Den.
Wednesday - Spring Clean Living Room
Thursday - Spring Clean Kitchen
Friday - Grocery Shopping, Running Errands
Saturday - Yard Work
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Plodding along with the Nuts About Squares blanket. Have all 3 squares for the first week done, and the first square for the second week, have to make 2 more squares before Friday.
That's week one on the left and week 2 on the right. I'm using blue, green and tan for the squares and grey for the outer 2 rows.
Looking around the house:::
Needs major picking up today, have all the remnants of yesterday's get together, just laying around. Have tables to pick up, dishes to do, vacuuming etc. Aside from that the rest of the house is clean.
From the camera:::
Nick's birthday is not until tomorrow, but yesterday was the day that some family could come up and see him, one of them being my mother in law who is battling breast cancer again and going through treatments. I wasn't planning on doing anything this week but when I heard she would be able to come see us, I threw a really simple get together. I needed to get a cake done and made my usual marshmallow fondant, but it didn't go very well, it wasn't smooth, it was lumpy and bumpy. I wasn't too happy with it, but the cake still turned out ok. Nick liked it and that is what matters :)
What I'm wearing today:::
It's pretty nice here today, should see a high temp of 76 and since I have cleaning and such to do, I will probably throw on some shorts and a tank.
One of my simple pleasures:::
Having family over for a get together. It is a lot of work, and I'm exhausted by the time everyone leaves, but I just love having people over.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
