Happy Homemaker Monday

www.familycorner.blogspot.com

Happy Monday Friends! 

I'm late with HHM today because this chest cold thing I have has been kicking my butt. I had to accomplish a few errands this afternoon and then worked on some house things, but got to it all later in the day and rested this AM.  So I'm finally sitting down now to work on this.  It will be the quick version. ;)   I hope to come finally catch up this week and visit you my dear Friends! Having no pep has really stunk

We had a decent weekend other than getting a lot more snow again! Gggrrr. I felt a little better on Saturday and Annie had a friend sleep over and they wanted to go to the trampoline park. So Hubby and took them there and we ran and got some dinner and grabbed some things at Menards we needed. A wild Saturday night date. Lol   Hubby and Son put a new toilet in the kiddos' bathroom and a new showerhead too. Always nice to get jobs done around here. But I just can't seem to kick this darn cough. It's getting old!













THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:

It got pretty decent out today - in the 40's and sunny. Looks like 30's and 40's the rest of the week.










ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:

Yogurt and a cup of coffee with coconut creamer











RIGHT NOW I AM:


Listening to the news as I get ready for Hubby to get home from work











AS I LOOK OUTSIDE MY WINDOW

Beautiful twilight on the bay as the sun is starting to set











AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE:

Pretty tidy and I'm getting ready to get leftovers out of the fridge to heat up for dinner














ON TODAY'S (& this week's) TO DO LIST:

Depending how I feel I will get groceries at some point. Dropped food off at my FIL's today and ran to the post office already. Hospice volunteering later in the week if I'm better. Projects I'm working on here. I think Annie may have some indoor soccer practices. She also has a play she is in at school that hubby and my mom and I will go watch and Annie is so excited about it ;) 



 









CURRENTLY READING:

I started reading a Nora Roberts novel - Whiskey Beach

 










ON THE TV TODAY:

Back to regular shows now the Olympics are done. Good Doctor, This is Us, Will and Grace, Greys Anatomy, Gold rush, The Profit















ON THE MENU THIS WEEK:

MONDAY: leftover ham and scalloped potatoes, veggies, toast


TUESDAY: grilled sandwiches and soup


WEDNESDAY: crepes in Annie's new crepe pan with lemon filling and fresh berries, sausage


THURSDAY: easy night - Annie's play



FRIDAY: not sure yet?


**I'm going to bake up some banana bread and I already made a peach pie this week




 










WHAT I AM CREATING AT THE MOMENT

Sent my legacy box back - yay! Working on scrapbooks and other projects









NEW RECIPE I WANT TO TRY THIS WEEK:

Not sure about a new recipe this week?








TIP OF THE WEEK:



I've never tried this, but in this season of sickie stuff thought it might be usefull








FROM THE CAMERA:
These pics are dark because I took them at night when we were getting about 5 to 6 inches of snow. It was still bright enough (that's a street light in the corner) to get a photo because the snow makes it brighter even with no daylight. 








got to love our crazy snow eating Ruby

  1. Such cute pictures of Ruby! I sure hope you feel better soon! It's really bad to feel like that in that weather! I love the ANGEL inspiration!

    My sister-in-law swears by that honey hack. She also does the bit of salt to basically cauterize the throat and she rarely gets sick and is up and running very quickly, so I'd try it!

    Wednesday dinner sounds amazing. Feel better and have a GREAT week.

    1. Thanks Tamy! I was doing salt water rinse and lots of tea with honey and lemon, but finally caved and went to walk in after 3 weeks of coughing. Think I'll be on the mend now with an inhaler and some meds. Ugh. :P

  4. Chest colds are the worst, Carrie. I hope you kick it soon. The snow is so pretty, but I know how anxious you must be for spring. Ruby looks like she's enjoying it, though. Take care. Hugs xo Karen
