HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY week 6 of 2019

Happy Monday and Happy February!  I’ve been having trouble sleeping or should I say staying asleep.  I get to sleep just fine, but then I’m WIDE awake just a few short hours later and can’t seem to get back to sleep which is leaving me sleepy and lethargic! So I’m up early today and hoping to get a bunch of things done before I’m out of energy again.

 OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE & WHAT I’M WEARING I’m certainly glad we’re not in Chicago or even in our old community in the Upper Peninsula this past week, but we are cold for here.  A little snow is predicted for today and tomorrow – nothing that will be really bad, but cold none-the-less and they just aren’t prepared for it here.  The last time they predicted it like this we had a bunch of snow that turned to ice and made traveling a PAIN in the butt.  Fortunately I do not have to go anywhere and am able to stay warm and toasty.  I have on comfy yoga pants, warm fuzzy socks and my favorite well worn sweatshirt.

ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE  Honey Nut Cheerios, banana and green tea

AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE/WEEKLY TO DO LIST & HOUSE PROJECTS/CRAFT BASKET/APPOINTMENTS

  • LAUNDRY… ALL caught up except for the towel folding
  • LIVING AREAS… need to dust and vacuum
  • KITCHEN… need to tidy up A LOT I made a mess making snack food for the Super Bowl and was too tired since I didn’t sleep the night before and had been up since 5AM on a Sunday
  • YARD… nothing
  • BLOG… I want/need to get back into some form of daily posting
  • CRAFTS/PROJECTS… working on some ideas to start an ETSY store with… not ready to show anything yet – will wait to see if what’s in my mind comes to fruition in reality
  • APPOINTMENTS… nothing much
  • TO DO… paperwork, VA follow up, makes some appointments…

ON MY MIND / THINGS THAT ARE MAKING ME HAPPY  In addition to the Blessings Gratitude jar this year I’m also doing the 52 week deposit challenge in the same jar.  It really is amazing how fast it adds up!  I do it on Mondays so it coincides with this post that always has the week number in it and I don’t really have to even think about it that way.

SOMETHING INTERESTING I WATCHED I’d like to say the SuperBowl, but honestly it was boring and not even the commercials were up to par as in years past.  My favorite commercials were:

  • Christinia Applegate and M&Ms
  • Budweiser Dalmation Blowin’ In The Wind
  • Toyota Supra Pinball
  • Bud Light Corn Syrup deliveries
  • CBS “eyes”
  • Harrison Ford in Amazon’s Alexa “FAILS”
  • Charlie Sheen and Mr Peanut
  • Hobbs and Shaw movie trailer
  • The football awards just before half time

I’M READING Ava Miles The Patchwork Quilt of Happiness (Dare River Book 6)

SUCCESSFUL RECIPE LINKS FROM LAST WEEK

FEATURED PARTY LINKS FOR THIS WEEK I’ve now eliminated 14 sites from my ‘WHERE I LIKE TO PARTY” list since the first of the year. I find it refreshing to be downsizing and eliminating those blogs from the list that are too multi-layered and problematic in their effort to be a money making platform instead of the fun blogging experience.  I find a lot of inspiring projects and recipes at these blog hops and I still do this for the fun of it – I really want to keep it that way 😀

I hope you had a GREAT week. I didn’t get as much accomplished in blogland as I would have liked and am extremely late visiting everyone – so much so that it’s time to post today’s almost.

Jodi

I wasn’t impressed with the Super Bowl either. The only commercial that I liked was the Christinia Applegate and M&Ms one. The chicken parmesan meatballs sound really yummy!! Have a great week!

I didn’t watch much of the superbowl – not a fan, but I did watch Maroon five – I love their songs. The 52 week money plan is a good one, wish I could get my kids to do it. Great food pics here – now I’m hungry! Have a great week

Hello, Tamy! Love the 52 week money plan. Our youngest daughter actually did that one time. What a great way to save a good chunk of change! Your menus look good and your pics are beautiful (as always) and , yes! I love the health and beauty tips. All good choices! Have a nice day and a great week ahead, my friend! Blessings! <3

I agree that not even the commercials were very good last night. It seems I missed the Charlie Sheen one, I’ll have to find it on-line. Hope you get some better rest this week and that it’s a great one for you!
