HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY week 3 of 2017

Guess what? It’s Monday – AGAIN!  This past week just flew by for me and I didn’t get anything I planned on doing anywhere close to done! I know it’s actually a holiday, but NOT around here. I ended up spending most of last week helping hubby on the backyard and fencing.  I’m also trying to do more frequent posts to help me get through all this.  Here are the links from last week’s updates if you are interestd.

OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE
Seems like every week starts out on the gray side lately.  This week is the same.  It is also unseasonably warm STILL!  I hate it!  I REALLY MISS having four seasons!

ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE
An English muffin with homemade BlackRaspberry Curd and COFFEE.  I tried to give up the coffee one day last week. And that is exactly how long it lasted – 1 DAY!

AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE
It is a bit of a wreck this week as I put aside everything to help hubby outside and so my projects from last week will carry over to this week.

Still nothing yet, but I have hopes for next month after the backyard is done.

I’m starting to get the cooking bug again and have lined up a week for trying a few new recipes. I’ll post the recipes as I go if we think they are worth making again.

Hang in there Sweetie! Sometimes one just needs to have a calmer week. What you folks have accomplished already is beyond amazing!!

A new show I want to look into is a young Victoria (as in the queen) on PBS – I've heard that's good?

And thankfully I LOVE apples – but I could not LIVE without my coffee inthe AM. Lol! xoxo

Oh my, giving up coffee? Why? However, I can't resist telling you that in one of my son's planners where they share the little fun facts, it noted that an apple is supposed to wake you up as well as a cup of coffee 🙂 If you haven't watched The Crown yet, I've really been enjoying it. Hope you have a wonderful week.

Sandra

Morning my friend 🙂 We've had the crazy weather up here in North Texas, and this morning starting very cloudy and rainy, but now we have gorgeous blue skies and it's warmed up so nicely. I don't mind it 🙂

Hope you have a wonderful week.

Good morning Tamy! Oh my goodness, what a huge amount you have accomplished and I know it seems like twice as much work when it is hot outside. I can imagine that this would not be the time to cut out coffee! I hope your new recipes are successful; we are trying a few new ones at our house as well. Thanks for the scrambled egg tip, they can be problematic if you're not working at the right temperatures.
