HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY week 5 OF 2021

Be sure to join us for Happy Homemaker Monday and link up
with our host, Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom

I hope you all had a great week. It was a strange one for me – ups and downs with my stomach/sugar issues, but it was still productive. I even worked in a painting class with a friend on Saturday. I had never done anything like it before, but had a good time and was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. Then Sunday was NFL playoff day so we just lazed around and watched football and read since it was too cold to do anything outside anyway 😀

Cold, gray and rainy/snowy. We aren’t supposed to see any sun this week with gray rainy snowy days and cold temperatures, highs in the low 40’s and lows in the low 30’s. I’m going to be painting this morning so I’m wearing old painting levis and my painting t-shirt.

Hot water, peach yogurt and a cheddar cheese slice.

THIS WEEK’S TO DO LIST, PROJECTS & APPOINTMENTS
  • LAUNDRY & CLEANING I just have the normal sheets and towels as well as a load of jeans and socks to do.
  • GROCERIES & ERRANDS I have another meal box coming this week so have very little grocery shopping to do. Hubby has a doctor appointment, but other than that it’s another homebody week.
  • PROJECT – Bathrooms are still in progress – we had to order some parts that are taking some time with “pandemic shipping” involved so the flooring is at a standstill, but the back bathroom is painted and I’m now working on removing the shower “stickies” and redoing the shower floor. Removing these stupid fish and the adhesive is a tedious and VERY time consuming project! My advice is to NEVER buy these stickies with all the stupid little cutouts as they are a serious pain in the butt. As a break from dealing with the shower floor the front bathroom is being prepped and will be painted this week.

  • RECIPE RESEARCH & MENU PLANNING I’m working on a February menu, but for some reason it’s slow going this month.

WHAT’S ON THE DVR/TV
  • NETFLIX We’ve been re-watching Stargate SG1
  • REDBOX EmptyMan (weird, weird movie) Wander with Tommy Lee Jones and Dreamland
  • CABLE UNICORN, CALL YOUR MOTHER, AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE, YOUNG SHELDON 911, 911 LONESTAR, L&O SVU, NCIS, NCIS LA, NCIS NEW ORLEANS, BULL, GOOD DOCTOR, RESIDENT, CHICAGO SERIES

I’m still reading SINS by Nadia Lee. It had good reviews on Amazon, but I was having trouble getting into it, but it’s flowing now 😀 And of course now I am falling asleep quickly and not having much reading time.

It’s been a little cold here! Even the spiders are having a hard winter!

Oh my gosh Tamy -that painting is awesome! I can’t believe you haven’t done that before. And bless your patient heart with those darn fish – ugh!! Love your life tips. They are perfection. I hope you feel better and your belly stuff improves. Blessings on the rest of your week. xoxo

Aw, thank you! My girlfriend and hubby talked me into taking another class this next weekend, so we’ll see. I can cook, quilt, do stained glass, make homemade jam, scrapbook, crochet etc…, but nope, I’d never tried painting so we will give it another try and maybe take it up as a new hobby. Hope your week is going well.

My son discovered Stargate SG-1 over the holidays and he loves it! I can’t believe I never took the time to watch it when it first came out. Your meal plan looks delicious!

QuiltLady

We saw it when it was originally on, but that was so many years ago it’s almost new 😀 Hope you are having a great week.

Jean

Your painting is beautiful! Are the stickies to keep from falling in the shower? Just wondering, they do look like a pain to remove but I still (don’t be mad) think they’re kind of cute. Of course, I imagine your finished bathroom is going to be amazing! Hope you have a wonderful week.

QuiltLady

Aw thanks! My girlfriend and hubby talked me into taking another class this next weekend, so we’ll see. Yes, the stickies were for grip, but they are old, with too many openings that allowed the water to get in and cause havoc. 😀 Can’t be mad, cause they were cute, just a pain in the butt! Hope you’re having a great week.

Thank you, my girlfriend and hubby talked me into taking another class this next weekend, so we’ll see. The “project” is NO fun, but needed to be done, so I’ll be glad when it’s over! Hope you’re having a GREAT week too! 😀

I love the pic of the frozen spiderweb. Nature is truly amazing. I love the tips for a happier life. Sometimes we just need to be reminded of this, especially when things are troubled.
Have a great week!
