Good morning, folks! It's been quite the weekend here, and I'm actually ready for the week because it actually promises to be less crazy, but we shall see!
Right now, I am: Celebrating the fact that I have the day off! What?! A Monday off? YES!
Thinking: That I have lots to get done today, but that I'm pretty sure it will all get done. I think I have some banana peppers to pick out of the garden, and Gram is bringing by fresh corn today. Yum!
On my reading pile: Somehow, in the midst of all of the insanity last week, I zoomed through Home to Big Stone Gap and Doll Bones, a super spooky book by Holly Black. I'm reading in A Cold Dark Place right now, and Ella and I are headed to the library this evening.
On my T.V: Nothing, I'm pretty sure. Too much to do, and I think I just want it to be me and my recliner and a book in the evenings.
On the menu this week:
Monday: Ham, Green Beans, and Small Potatoes in the crockpot
Tuesday: Chicken Tikka Masala, Rice, and Garlic Naan
Wednesday: Pot Roast
Thursday: Lasagna Soup
Friday: Breakfast for Dinner/Fend for Yourself night, as I have to work super duper late
Saturday: Potato Soup
Sunday: Chicken Alfredo
On my to-do list today: Check the gardens, library, visit with neighbors and with Gram, clean the bathrooms
In the craft basket: Still that skirt. I'm notoriously slow at this stuff.
Looking forward to this week: Thursday, when Gram and I are going to a concert in the next town over, and Saturday, when I should have an easy day...also, the coming of my ipsy bag. It's silly, but I love to play around with all of the new products!
Looking around the house: It's quiet and if I look out my window at a certain angle, I noticed I can see the McDonald's arches peeking through the trees. It's odd that I've never noticed it before, and we've been in this house over a year.
From the camera:
On my prayer list: My Dad, who's due for a "check in" appointment with his cancer doc on the 16th. I remember the August of 2013, and how scared we all were of everything. I'm hoping for all good news, and that the cancer is still in remission.
