Whoa - I sort of disappeared for a bit there, eh? I'm back home for the day (snow day, that is) and linking up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay-at-Home-Mom for Happy Homemaker Monday. I have so much fly through my head for just random posts, but everything feels so opionated and divisive. And I don't want to go there. So I'll just keep it nice and shallow and friendly instead. :)
Well, I don't know if that looks like a good time to you, but it looks cold and miserable to me. LOL As a school employee for a whopping 10 hours/week, I do appreciate sleeping in, but I've already maxed out my paid snow days. So I won't get paid for today, and I fully expect to have at least one or two more snow or cold days off this week. Yay for sleep, boo for my paycheck in mid-February.
On my reading pile::
The book I'll be finishing tonight on my Kindle is Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. I haven't yet watched the movie version, but I hope to - I love book/movie combos. Next I'm starting The Forgotten Hours by Katrin Schumann.
On my TV::
That's cute, how you think I might have some control over my own TV set. I've never been a big TV watcher. Right now I think it's some goofy kids YouTube thing - looks like HobbyKidsTV. I don't have any shows I'm currently watching.
On the menu for this week::
Monday - Hubs and daughter are out skiing, so I don't cook for just two. The little man and I will scrounge up some leftovers. Maybe hubs will let me know where they grab dinner and bring me something. Maybe not. No biggie either way.
Tuesday - Hubs teaches skiing, and the kids have activities til 5pm and 6:30pm. Last week we got pizza on the way home. It was good. Maybe we should do that again.
Wednesday - I got a box mix for red beans and rice with sausage. I'm hoping hubs will like it. Maybe we'll try it Wednesday.
Thursday - See Tuesday. LOL No, not pizza again, but hubs won't be home, so the kids and I will just warm something up.
Friday - Chicken of some sort. I need to pick up another can of chicken broth, but then I'll either put together the chicken and stuffing that my daughter really likes, or maybe some chicken and dumplings in the crock pot.
On my to-do list::
Finish getting daughter's laundry out of the dryer
Dry son's laundry and get it put away too
Do another load of whites so hubs has long johns clean for Thursday
Wash my jeans
Spend some time working on counted cross-stitch if we get another snow day this week
Looking around the house::
So happy I filled up my birdfeeders outside the front door. I love friendly little visitors. I'd like to get a couple more feeders to adorn more of my shepherd's hooks.
From the camera::
What I'm wearing today::
Double sweaters - a sweater, and then a poncho sweater my mom made over it. I hate to be cold. And a pair of jeggings that would not be warm enough outside, but I knew I wouldn't be going anywhere today.
My simple pleasures::
Curling up with an afghan and reading. Listening to music. Feeling no pressure to do anything. Yay for a good snow day!
