Sunday Snapshots, Jan. 22, 2017


Here we are again. The weekend is winding down. I, for one, am glad to see it go after all the sickness in this house! So far I am still feeling good. Fingers crossed I’m lucky enough to avoid it. 

It’s been a week since I got my hyacinth and I have to say — it really is growing! I can’t believe I haven’t killed it yet!

Hyacinth, Week 2

I went out after I made lunch for everyone. I had to pick up a few groceries and I skipped into Michaels. You know, just to “look.” LOL! Somehow this new washi organizer and box of beautiful washi tape just jumped into my cart! I’ve actually been looking for this washi box. Only $10 for 45 rolls! Sure, the rolls don’t have a huge amount of tape on them, but I so rarely use up an entire roll that I think I prefer it this way. I also needed a better method for storing all of my washi tape and I think this container is going to be perfect.

I grabbed a coffee at McDonald’s on the way home. I wanted to use my free reward at Starbucks, but I swear everyone was out today. The parking lot was packed and the drive-thru line was too long so… a regular $1 coffee it was! I got home, put away the groceries, and brought in some wood. Although it was 56 degrees this afternoon, it’s going to get cold again this week so I wanted to make sure we are stocked up for the wood stove..

Then I did a little meal prep for the week.

Cut-up veggies for easy snacking…Veggies for the week

Chicken noodle soup for Laura’s lunches…Chicken noodle soup

And hot cocoa cookies for the cookie jar…Chocolate marshmallow cookies

Thankfully, everyone here is definitely on the road to recovery and can head to school tomorrow. Drew is still a little wishy-washy, but hopefully he’ll get a good night’s rest and feel better tomorrow. As for me, I think I’m going to tackle that washi reorganization and have a cup of tea with one or two of those cookies!
