GOOD MORNING friends – Happy Valentine’s Day week.  I had a productive albeit slow week with the weather hindering much activity.  First it snows and then it pours down rain the hardest I’ve ever seen or heard and then it snows again! I did get some tamales made, some canning done and these cute little boxes put together for the munchkins which I gave them over the weekend since they have multiple practices, games and activities every day after school this week including Valentine’s Day.

 

OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE & WHAT I’M WEARING It’s going to be another cold wet week HAHA 😀 I have on my favorite yoga pants, long sleeve t-shirt and fluffy socks since I have no intention of going outside as wet as it’s supposed to be! I’m not too invested in this (other than to know it will be some form of cold and wet) as it seems to change every couple hours 😀

ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE apple raisin oatmeal, banana and green tea

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

  • LAUNDRY… ALL caught up
  • LIVING AREAS… I need to dust, vacuum and neaten
  • KITCHEN… just did a DEEP clean after canning
  • YARD… nothing
  • BLOG… not much this week
  • CRAFTS/PROJECTS… still working on a new idea or two
  • APPOINTMENTS… just a couple
  • TO DO… a few phone calls and paperwork

SOMETHING INTERESTING I WATCHED We rented a couple Netflix movies over the cold, wet weekend, but nothing was super extraordinary except Hunter Killer.  Some of the previews did look REALLY good though. 

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

WHAT IS ON THE DVR, I LIKE OR ON THE LIST TO WATCH Nothing much, but some cooking shows and a couple of Hallmark Valentine movies.

FAVORITE PHOTO FROM THE CAMERA Yesterday was SUPER cold, but almost sunny so we did a little drive and found a few nice pictures like the old barn, neat tree and weird donkey, but the fighting turkeys and peacocks were REALLY interesting near my favorite bridge.

They were NOT happy with each other and it turned into an all out brawl before it was over!  Then they chased each other over the bridge before acting like long lost friends again!

They were so much fun to watch and seemed completely oblivious to me even being there! I HOPE YOU’RE HAVING A GREAT WEEK! 😀

They were so much fun to watch and seemed completely oblivious to me even being there! Fortunately, I’m not made of sugar so while the rain is not always pleasant it’s tolerable. I HOPE YOU’RE HAVING A GREAT WEEK! 😀

We have so many neat “WORKING” covered bridegs here – I just love it. The movie was quite suspenseful – I hope you enjoy it.
