Hello Dear Friends!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend! We had volleyball action this time. Annie's tourney was a little out-of-town so it was a 5:30AM wake up call here yesterday morning. ((yawn)) It was fun to watch her in action, though, and I got to watch the sunrise and it was a stunner yesterday!
Also, we were productive around here with house chores. I started getting more of my Spring decorations out and hope to finish today. My Hubby worked more on our laundry room and hopefully we can finish it up (for the most part) by next weekend. We also had some nice relaxation time, watched some movies and just had an all around nice family weekend. Now on to this week!
THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:
It's the 1st day of Spring! Yay! However, in the northwoods today it's going to be mild (around 40 degrees), but it's gray and blah out there. Looks like some chances of rain (or rain/snow mix) this week too with temps primarily in the 30's or 40's. Might get a bit of sunshine a few days too. Here's hoping! ;)
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:
Lemon Isagenix bar and cup of coffee.
RIGHT NOW I AM:
Listening to classical music while I work on this and watch all the animal action outside my tv room windows.
AS I LOOK OUTSIDE MY WINDOW:
It's gray and I'm tired of looking at my patchy - part snow, part grass/muddy ground out there. Spring around here is always muddy and messy! However, I'm loving that it does look like Spring with all the animals being so lively. I'm currently watching lots of chickadees take turns on the birdfeeder, as well as a bunny munching grass out in the yard. A squirrel has come a few times to steal a few seeds the chickadees drop on the deck. A pesky big black crow has come a few times to pick on the bunny and I've chased him off. I sure don't care for those birds. Ggrrr. But good morning critters one and all! You help it feel like Spring!
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE:
Definitely some chores need to be accomplished. The usuals - dishes, another load of laundry, tidying up some clutter from the weekend and finish putting out the decorations so I can put those bins away.
ON TODAY'S (& this week's) TO DO LIST:
Spring decorating. Appt about my daughter getting her braces on - yikes! Volleyball practice. Time with my MIL. Visit and meal for my FIL. Errands. Work on several projects I'm in the middle of in my crafting world. My Kiddos don't have school the end of the week due to conferences - so I'll look forward to having some fun time with them. They're also off for Spring break next week - so it'll be busier next week too!
I'm currently reading a book about different personality styles for changing eating habits and getting healthy. Got side tracked with this and hope to start the Cursed Child after I'm done with it.
ON THE TV TODAY:
Cooking shows. Timeless yet to catch up on. Grey's Anatomy to catch up on. And I'm excited that Dancing with the Stars starts back tonight!
ON THE MENU THIS WEEK:
MONDAY: breakfast for dinner
TUESDAY: soup and sandwiches
WEDNESDAY: Blue Apron delivery - breaded catfish with black garlic mayo and jasmine rice
THURSDAY: green garlic pesto pasta with butter lettuce salad and creamy lemon dressing (I love pesto so much - excited for this one!) B.A. meal

FROM THE CAMERA:
Beautiful sunrise (in a blur out the window on our way to volleyball)
My Girl in action! Got some overhand serves in this time - yay! And in bottom right shows her on the floor after diving for one...she loves that part! My little jock. Lol!
Some of this started happening around my home and I plan to do more today. Welcome to you Ms. Spring!!
This morning called for a Spring green candle with my coffee
Lots of critter action out my window this morning also sings of Spring!
