HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY week 45 of 2018

GOOD MORNING!  Personally, I wish they’d just pick one time or the other already and leave it alone!!!  I’m not even sure I care which one!   This time change stuff is for the birds.

Despite the fact that I should be sleeping later I’m up early and will be doing some pre-Thanksgiving grocery shopping today.  My local stores have some GREAT sales on items I’m going to be needing, but the sales are only good until tomorrow so I’m getting a jump start on the week.

Be sure to link up with
Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for Happy homemaker Monday

and with Laura at I’m an Organizing Junkie for Menu Plan Monday.

OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE & WHAT I’M WEARING – With the fall back of the time this past weekend, we FINALLY hit the cooler weather I’ve been waiting for.  It’s been pretty wet and is down in the low 50’s 😀

ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE – Green tea and yogurt

CRAFTS / PROJECTS – I found an OLD frame (it was from a 1934 family photo) at an antique store this past week that just called to me and begged to become a wreath with interchangeable parts.  The slits on the sides are perfect for lacing the parts through.  I spray painted it a teal blue with red and silver sparkle paint and then added some sprayed pine cones. It’s not a GREAT picture, but you get the idea.

I agree about the time change and I wish they’d leave it like it is right now. For some reason, I can never adjust to the time change in the summer, but this feels right and things seem to flow better for me. Love reading your blog and love your food pics! Am pretty sure that I’ll be trying those MELTING POTATOES! They look and sound delicious! Have a great week ahead, Tamy! Blessings! <3

😀 YEP feels right because we are in “normal” time now. Those melting potatoes are soooooo good – I hope you enjoy them. Have a GREAT week.

I’ll be griping in the spring but I love the time change in the fall. If they leave it one way, I want it so my mornings have light! It was getting a bit ridiculous here with it not even getting light out until almost 7:30. What a neat idea to take that frame and make it a wreath. Hope you have a wonderful week!

QuiltLady

ABSOLUTELY!!!! I agree 100% this is the time as it has always been before daylight savings time! Have a GREAT week too.

Schotzy

Wow. you are so organized…. your menus look amazing and you did every meal of the day. whew. I can hardly think of one meal a day… Oh, by the way. YOu asked me about my surprise… well I wrote about it on my post today under a couple of places but especially under my new recipe!!! Check it out!!! SO you’ve started your Christmas cards…. You are too much! God bless, dear friend!!

QuiltLady

Thank you so much! I went and checked out your “surprise”. I love Pad Thai, my old next door neighbor used to make it for me ALL the time – homemade is best! Have a GREAT week.

Lucie

You have some great recipes posted. I too wish they would stop with the time change – just mixes up our bodies for nothing. Love the frame you made, it is really nice. Have a great week

QuiltLady

Thank you! You are so right on the mixing up our bodies. I feel like I’m getting up in the middle of the night 🙁 Have a GREAT week too.
