Hello to All! Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
We had a very fun one around here! On Saturday I had a girls night out with a girlfriend and we went to see the new Tina Fey movie Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. We both thought it was really good. It's based on a true story - and I expected it to be more comedic...but it was really more dramatic and interesting, plus some funny stuff too. Then yesterday was our game night with family over and it was such a blast!! Great laughs, wonderful conversation and yummy food. Plus, it was so gorgeous and warm outside and looks to be rather Spring-like for our week ahead too. I couldn't ask for more than that! Lol
THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:
Around 40* and sun peeking in a out. A bit breezy though. Supposed to be 50's tomorrow but rain - and maybe even our first thunderstorm of the season - in early March!! Crazy for us. Looks like 40's and 50's all week (and normal high this time of year here is about 30 if we're lucky). All of our snow will probably melt by the end of this week. Loving it!
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:
One slice of banana chocolate & butterscotch chip bread and 1/2 cup of toasted coconut mocha coffee. Yum!!
AS I LOOK OUTSIDE MY WINDOW:
Cloudy now and trees are waving around a lot due to it being so breezy. Lots of puddles in the driveway. Lots of melting done yesterday when it was in the 50's!
RIGHT NOW I AM:
Listening to Celtic music and planning out my menu and week ahead. Lots going on and I need to get my energy level in high gear! Lol
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE:
Nice and clean due to clean up for game night.
ON TODAY'S TO DO LIST:
Need to throw in more laundry and do my workout. Have the kiddos' haircut appointments tonight. I have other appointments nights this week too, plus groceries & errands, caregiving, and more hockey tourney's ahead. Busy busy busy!
Still reading Nora Roberts book Unfinished Business.
ON THE TV TODAY:
I watched the final Downtown - and in case you haven't seen it I won't give anything away. I'll just say it was SO good and I just bawled knowing it was really all done. I'm still grieving today, as I just really don't want it to be over!! I watched The Good Wife too which is also so good. I have Grey's Anatomy to catch up on and Amazing Race.
ON THE MENU THIS WEEK:
MONDAY: leftover brown sugar chili & sandwiches from game night
TUESDAY: tortellini soup my Uncle had canned and brought us that I will share recipe later in week
WEDNESDAY: broccoli, cheese and bacon egg bake and strawberry muffins and fruit
THURSDAY: spaghetti hot dish, rolls and salad
FRIDAY: not sure yet due to hockey stuff
WHAT I AM CREATING AT THE MOMENT:
Scrapbooking project that will be a gift for a cousin of mine in the future. Also recipe card project for a friend...and along with that trying to finish up Annie's cookbook scrapbook and organize my recipes better at the same time!
NEW RECIPE I WANT TO TRY THIS WEEK:
I still didn't make the wet walnuts for ice cream I planned to last week, and think I may give them a try this week.
TIP OF THE WEEK:
If you don't do a family game night - even once in a while - I suggest that you do! Such a fun way to share time together.
FROM THE CAMERA:
New fireplace and hot crock pot of chili all set for game night!
Bunnies and flowers and Eastery decorations showing up all around here now. ;)
