Happy Homemaker Monday

www.familycorner.blogspot.com

Happy Monday Friends! 

I hope you had a great weekend. It was a productive one here cleaning up and getting out my Easter and Spring decorations. I am so ready for Spring and yet more snow coming this week. Such is life in the northwoods.  


Annie had an especially busy end of the week and weekend. The end of last week she was a narrator in a play at school (Charlotte's Web) that we went to watch. The students did such a great job it was so fun! Afterwards she was treated to her favorite Chinese food. Then over the weekend she went to a friend's birthday party, had hockey practice, and a final hockey party from her winter hockey team.  Oh to be 11 again and have all that energy. ;P













THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:

Sunny but really windy. Potential snow storm overnight tonight but may head more south of us too. Either way probably going to get a few more inches of snow again tonight. Then pretty clear and 20's and 30's predicted the rest of the week








ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:

Whole wheat toast with peanut butter, a drizzle of honey and sprinkle of sunflower seeds on top. Coffee with hazelnut creamer













RIGHT NOW I AM:


Listening to Ed Sheeran radio on my Echo











AS I LOOK OUTSIDE MY WINDOW

The wind is blowing the trees around like crazy. They're doing quite a dance out there












AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE:

Pretty clean from the weekend and so nice to see lots of pretty flowery things out around the house. I'll share a few pics and share more in the future.  I have some real flowers in my kitchen window too. They just make me smile ;) 














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

The usuals: errands, groceries, visit MIL, food for FIL, run around with my Mom, religious ed, my hospice volunteering, etc. Meeting a friend for coffee. But some big projects also planned as I'm going to go through all of my closets and jewelry and get rid of old things and organize better. Eventually (maybe not this week) I'm going to tackle the kitchen cabinets and island too!!


 









CURRENTLY READING:

Nothing currently - lots of magazines

 










ON THE TV TODAY:

I watched the Oscars and thought it was really fun this year! The Good Doctor, This is Us, Survivor, Kids Baking Championship, The Profit, Greys Anatomy, Gold Rush, and some movies taped














ON THE MENU THIS WEEK:

MONDAY: penne pasta, caesar salad, homemade chocolate and butterscotch bars for dessert


TUESDAY: scrambled eggs with veggies and cheese, polish sausage (what I grew up having sometimes instead of bacon or breakfast sausage), toast, fruit


WEDNESDAY: BBQ meatballs, baked potatoes, veggies


THURSDAY: chickie chip on toast (a favorite recipe my Gram used to always make), veggies and dip



FRIDAY: maybe go out or order in?






 










WHAT I AM CREATING AT THE MOMENT

I finished a project recently - a little decorated cookbook scrapbook that I will share soon









NEW RECIPE I WANT TO TRY THIS WEEK:

Might look up something to bake that's new








TIP OF THE WEEK:


This cracked me up, but actually it's probably a good idea. I don't know how many times I've been looking for something and it's right in front of my face and I'm not seeing it. Lol Anybody been there? ;) 








FROM THE CAMERA:
Our Girl in action in her play. As narrator she was also in a lot of barnyard scenes and wore a dog costume


Here you can see some of the other barnyard critters


I love that during the performance the cast actually had Charlotte weaving her web. You can see Annie's back in the front center helping hold a strand while others "wove"



A little bit of video of our Girl in action doing her narrator job





Annie loves her Nana xoxo



Thinking Spring thoughts even though poor Felix the frog is buried under the snow in the garden





Lots of pastels around our home right now - I had to tuck my cute little sheep in this wreath. He just seemed to fit ;)

  1. GREAT pictures and what fun for Annie - I'd give ANYTHING for an 11 year old's energy! Sounds like you have a serious spring cleaning bug. Despite the more snow, I hope you have fun organizing. LMBO at your life hack - what a GREAT idea. Your Easter decorations are so pretty too. Have a GREAT week my friend.

  3. Love your quote for this week! The play sounds like lots of fun, what a great idea to have a real web going during it. Seems strange to see your snow when I just raked the leaves out of my garden area yesterday (tulips and lilies are sprouting over here!). Hope you have a great week!

  4. Yay for Annie! It sounds like a fun play, and I'm impressed she did it - it takes courage to talk in front of all those people.
    The Good Doctor, This is Us and Survivor are some of my favorites!

  6. So now there are 102 Dalmatians. Tell our Annie to look out for Cruella DeVille! She looks so cute, and Mom, Dad, and Nana look pretty proud.

    Your house is looking beautiful. That's one of the prettiest wreaths I've ever seen. I changed my door winter wreath to my spring wreath and then saw robins in my back yard. Yes! Spring is coming!

    Don't know how you do all that you do, but I love hearing about it, so Carry On.

  7. Wow your backyard looks a little like ours! We got the snow and wind too. I think the crazy windy night came before we got the snow. It must have been so fun to see Annie in Charlotte Web. Cute costume and it's such a sweet story! Keep thinking spring, neighbor! could PS Your menu looks good. What's your religious ed thing? Just curious. Ever heard of Scott Hahn?

  8. Hi Judy! Thanks ;) And when I say religious ed I'm referring to the classes for my kiddos at our church (because they don't go to a Catholic school I have them attend classes). And no I'm not familiar with Scott Hahn, but just googled him and was reading up about him. xoxo

  9. Your menu for the week sounds fantastic. I've never been organized enough to do meal planning, but I'm going to start this week.
