Monday already......

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 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 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.

  1. Yes, I saw your recipe and am definitely going to give it a try.
    Sorry to hear about you and the little ones being sick. Ugh!

  2. That recipe sounds really good. I will have to try it. I have posted the recipe you asked about at my site! I hope you will try it and enjoy it. So, you are an Air Force family, like we are. Have you been in a long time? We started in 1990--a very long time, it seems! I'm doing laundry today too--ugh! That is always my Monday chore. I liked how you posted what you were eating, watching, and doing--that's nice.

  3. Thank you for the chicken piri piri recipe! It is now safely stashed in my favorites folder!

    I love how you post what's for dinner, what you are doing, and watching on t.v. Shows how boring my own life is, huh?

    Who do you want to win "Dancing"? I like Joey Fatone -- but I had a crush on him when he was in NKOTB, so I have to be loyal.


    ps Hope you and your kids feel better soon!

  4. Love your blog! And thanks for all the great food links! I'm heading to some of them right now!!!

  5. Drink a lot of water and rest....which is hard to do with little ones. Hope you all feel better real soon.

  6. Wow I can believe you were able to visit so many sites...I'm impressed. I always have such good intentions and then my time just gets away from me. I'm heading over to your food blog now.

    PS: Hope your kiddos feel better soon.

  7. Sandra! I love your new template! Sorry the little ones are not feeling very good. Sure hope you don't get it. Have you made it to Arizona yet? We're in CA and loving it!! Hope to hear from you soon. Take care and don't get sick.


  8. I couldn't believe how fast the weekend went either. Sigh. I would love about a good week off with nothing to do just so I could catch up on sleep and rest.
