Hello and Happy Monday Friends!
I hope you're starting your week out great and full of smiles 😊 I had a busy one out of the gate this morning needing to get a few things done around here before running errands. And now I only have a few minutes to work on this before I need to pick up Annie from school. I will plan to finish it up when I get back and get it posted yet today.
Did you have a lovely weekend? It was a productive one here and nice because the weather finally let up a bit and was warmer. I spent some fun outside time with Ruby. But also got things done around the house, including finally really diving into cleaning out my closet. I have been starting and stopping on that project for a long time now. Lol But really took the plunge this weekend. Not done yet, but getting there. I also had some fun spa time with Annie and we went and got spa pedis. Love girlie time. 💕
THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING
some fruit and coffee with natural sweet cream creamer
HOW I AM FEELING THIS MORNING:
Full of energy. It was a productive morning and I got my workout in - which I've been determined to keep doing faithfully... and some things around the house before I had to dash out for errands.
ON MY MIND:
Appointments I need to make for Annie this week, her 2 hockey games, errands to run. Just a busy week ahead, but want to spend some time in my hospice volunteering and other projects too.
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE
Pretty clean and bright. But for all the nice pics I show you of my home here's some reality too:
There has obviously been a leaking issue going on in my bedroom ceiling. Ad and I are trying to figure out where it's coming from. He had someone come and clean out the ice dams on the roof - but it's still leaking, so on to plan B. Hopefully we can figure it out soon!
I haven't started a new book yet, have been reading some new magazines I picked up
ON THE TV TODAY:
Spring Baking Championship, Escape to the Chateau on HGTV, the Resident, The Chase, The Hustler, Miss Scarlet and the Duke, American Housewife, This is Us, The Rookie, Men in Kilts: a roadtrip with Sam & Graham (from Outlander), and When Calls the Heart is back - yay!!
ON THE MENU THIS WEEK:
MONDAY - not sure? Maybe crepes with berries & bacon
TUESDAY - pork & cabbage stir fry with cilantro & crispy fried onions (HF meal)
WEDNESDAY - soup (not sure what kind yet), red lobster biscuits
THURSDAY - chickpea fritters with greek salad & garlic white sauce (HF meal)
FRIDAY - fish sandwich night?
TO RELAX THIS WEEK I WILL:
work on fun projects, talk to girlfriends, give myself a manicure
FROM THE CAMERA:
lavender toes 💜
I love when the sunbeams stream in the windows. And looking out those windows this weekend I noticed a very well fed bunny visiting on the deck. Lol
Ruby said "Mom it's finally nice out - let's go play". And so we did. It felt wonderful to get fresh air that wasn't painful. Lol I love this bay and the beauty here so much.
I pray for an end to this virus. For peace, healing and unity in our world. I pray for anyone sick, suffering, isolated, and afraid - for their peace and comfort. Please Lord give strength to those fighting the virus on the frontlines. 🙏 I hope this vaccine will be safe and effective and the beginning of the end for this virus for good.
