Good morning friends, and a very Happy Monday to you all :)
I can tell you that I'm quite glad to see this new week come up. Last week was just a hit of bad news after another. I don't know what it is, or what is going on, but I was having this conversation with my husband and I was telling him that it feels like there is constantly some sort of stress looming above our heads and I've about had enough of it.
It's interfered with my life, my health, my mental well being and I sometimes sit and wonder where the old Sandra has disappeared to because I would surely love to have her back.
Anyway, let's just concentrate on the week ahead and go from there shall we?
Breakfast time....what is on the plate this morning::::
Nothing at the moment, I just had some coffee around 6am, but I'm thinking I'll probably have Weetabix. My stomach hasn't been feeling too well since last night's dinner, I actually spent most of the night feeling quite sick to my stomach and having horrible heartburn. For some reason, every once in a while, I will eat green peppers and they will do this to me.
Right now I am::::
Sitting on the couch, blanket over my legs, and typing up this post. I also changed the template a bit this morning and have been messing around with that.
The weather outside::::
60 degrees at 7am, and we'll be hitting 80 this afternoon. Seriously? The rest of the week, the highs will be in the 50's.
Looking around the house::::
Those Christmas boxes that were sitting here last week Monday? Yeah they're still there, I haven't made it to them yet. Hoping to do that today so I can get all these put away. I hate clutter.
On today's to do list::::
Cleaning.....Empty dishwasher, refill again. Sweep and mop kitchen floor. Bathrooms. Living rooms.
Homeschooling.....Have to help Nick with a Critical Response Essay. He hates writing essays and I don't blame him, so I have to sit with him and literally force the kid to keep writing or it never gets done.
Cooking....Not sure, but with my stomach feeling the way it does, I think for lunch I may just have toast or chicken soup. Dinner will be one of my husband's favorites and requested by him for today....SOS (ground beef with gravy, served over bread) and a salad.
About to start B.J. Daniels book "A Cowboy's Legacy".
On the TV today::::
Last night's Outlander
Started watching Vikings, which I've been wanting to watch for years and never got around to it. Really enjoying it so far.
On the menu this week::::
I'm hoping to start recording my weekly meals again this week. In the meantime, I did put up a Grocery Haul on my Youtube Channel, so go on and check it out if you're interested :)
Monday - SOS
Tuesday - Chicken Parmesan with Spaghetti
Wednesday - Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Tacos, Mexican Rice, Pressure Cooker Refried Beans
Thursday - Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans
Friday - Ajo Chicken, Rice, Steamed Broccoli
Saturday - Meatballs Sandwiches, Potato Wedges
Sunday - Chorizo Potato Crispy Tacos
If I have a few minutes to myself, I will::::
Continue working on my crochet blanket. I'm making a blanket for my sister in law for Christmas, and I've been working on it this weekend while I watch TV.
New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::::
There are a few new ones that I'll be trying, from my new cookbooks that I'll be reviewing at the end of the week.
Looking forward to this week::::
I'm just hoping for an uneventful week with no more bad news. Last week felt like one hit after another.
Favorite photo from the camera::::
Beautiful sunrise a few days ago
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses::::
Definitely need this right now.
After almost 4 years together, planning a future, buying things for their house and all that, my daughter's boyfriend decided to end everything with her. She was devastated, but after a few days she is doing much better, moving on, spending time with friends and understanding that maybe it wasn't meant to be and she deserves much better. If you could keep her in your prayers, I really would appreciate it.
My mother in law has been fighting breast cancer and could really use some prayers too.
