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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
