It’s Monday Again!

Happy Monday evening! It’s sooo  dark out right now. But I have to say I do enjoy it being light early in the morning. It makes it a lot easier to get going! We had a pretty nice weekend here, how about you?

Yesterday I got a lot of cleaning done in the house and Drew blew leaves outside, and put away the grill and patio furniture for the winter. I also made a mini-Thanksgiving — roast turkey breast with gravy, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, zucchini…. I like to do a “practice run” before Thanksgiving to make sure I’ll have everything I need (namely, gravy separator which somehow I always manage to lose!). It was yummy!

It’s kind of funny participating in HHM this late in the day, but I find it’s easiest for me to blog while dinner is cooking so… it’s more of a reflection, I guess! Anyway.

Breakfast time….what is on the plate this morning::::
This morning it was a bowl of Grain Grains cereal and some coffee.

Right now I am:::: 
Sitting in my kitchen and watching the time so I can get dinner started!

The weather outside::::
Today was windy and drizzly. Earlier in the day it was kind of warm and humid, but it definitely got colder as the day went on.

Looking around the house::::
I have to vacuum and steam mop, but otherwise its looking pretty good.

On today’s to do list::::
– Fold laundry

Currently reading::::
Bird Box just came in for me at the library, so I’ll get that tomorrow and start reading it. 

On the TV today::::
No idea! I haven’t even thought about it.

On the menu this week::::

Monday – Pork chops with vinegar peppers, asparagus, baked sweet potatoes
Tuesday – French dip sandwiches (roast in crock pot), battered fries, salad
Wednesday – Taco night
Thursday – Thai peanut chicken, rice, asparagus
Friday – Baked meatball Parmesan, salad
Saturday – Lemon chicken over pasta, broccoli
Sunday – Maybe take-out?

If I have a few minutes to myself, I will::::
I will keep hooking away at the triangle scarf I’m making for myself.

New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::::
Tonight’s pork chop recipe is a new one that I’ve wanted to try for quite a while!   

Looking forward to this week::::

I’m very much looking forward to Election Day being over! Also, I’m looking forward to going to a wine tasting on Saturday night.

Favorite photo from the camera::::
I changed my planner cover to a Thankgiving-themed cover I got a few years ago. I love this one! Excuse my reflection in the lamination, LOL!

    I really like your planner cover. Glad to see someone else say they like the light in the early mornings. A Thanksgiving type meal sounds wonderful. Hope you have a wonderful week.

    I’m running late this week with getting back from up north and getting sick right away. The time change is also messing with me BIG time too. Have a GREAT week.
