HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY 11~7~2016

MONDAY! HERE WE ARE AGAIN! 

A week ago was our 1 year “anniversary” of arriving here to the house from hell.  I’m still working on a post FULL of before and after pictures which I hope to have up yet this week.

Unfortunately we decided last Wednesday night to go to one of our formerly favorite TEXMEX restaurants to celebrate – BAD DECISION.  I say unfortunately because 10 hours later I was in the hospital with a severe case of food poisoning and a concussion from where I fell in the bathroom after I became violently ill. The ER doctor said it was the 2nd case that week from the same restaurant. So this will be a quiet and SLOW week for me and I hope to get back on track next week.

OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE
We had some SERIOUS thunderstorms last night and it is a little rainy this morning with a chance of more serious thunderstorms throughout the day. The temperatures have dropped into the 70’s (FINALLY!!) and so it is quite pleasant.

ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE
Honey nut cheerios with banana and milk and of course COFFEE!

AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE
I’m happy with the condition for a Monday after a week of issues.  I have tons to do, but as I’m on a modified bed rest will do it SLOWLY! AND I won’t be entirely upset if i doesn’t ALL get done.

WEEKLY TO DO LIST & HOUSE PROJECTS

  • Keep sorting craft parts in the studio.
  • Finish the marbelizing on the bar area and utility counter and hoping the delay of sitting several extra days before the top coat hasn’t changed the process.
  • Dust and vacuum.
  • Shade cloth for backyard behind our bedroom.
  • Prune roses and trim lantana.
  • Grocery store and errands.

CURRENTLY READING & TELEVISION / DVR
We did find a new NETFLIX show, ICE Pilots, this weekend while I was forced to lay around and are really enjoying it.  Amazing show about keeping WWII planes in service in some of the harshest conditions imaginable.

Well, the drywaller just announced things are NOT drying the way he wants so we are extending into tomorrow, but the good news is that the entire living room and kitchen are covered in plastic forcing me to camp out in the bedroom and rest up. I should be able to do at least a salad for later and worry about everything else tomorrow.

Oh that slip was funny! I hadn't even realized I'd done that. Lol!

Well I don't like you had to work so hard – but you're right. It will be worth it! And good for you to call his bluff!! Geesh, what is with folks sometimes??

Hope things stay on the mend and the up and up from here Doll.

LMBO at your Freudian slip about the boss "washing" his employees. The health department is getting a call tomorrow.

I was taking it easy and then placed an ultimatum call to the contractor about the living room wall and kitchen ceiling he was supposed to do middle of LAST month thinking I could line him up soon and he called my bluff and said he'd be here at 9AM tomorrow! So I had NO choice but to work about 6 hours today prepping for tomorrow, but it will be SOOOOOOOOOOOOO worth it because we can FINALLY order the carpet!!!!!! I promise the rest of the week will be resting though!

Thank you for stopping by during your crazy busy week.

Oh poor Honey- that's terrible!! Make sure you do take things nice and slow this week and feel fully back to yourself before going crazy on any projects. Sounds like an inspector needs to pay a visit to that place -or the boss needs to wash his employees closer and make sure they're washing their hands. Geesh.

I never thought about freezing lemon zest. That's a great idea!!
Blessings on your week Tamy and feel better. xoxo
