HAPPY HOMEMAKER MONDAY with MENU PLANS week 3 of 2023 ~ BLOG 365.16

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

EVERY time I checked the weather yesterday the forecast for the week was DIFFERENT except for the temperatures. So we’ll supposedly still be in the 40’s during the day and 30’s at night, it’ll be gray and cloudy with some wind and we may or may not have rain 😀 We were supposed to be sunny yesterday and weren’t so I just don’t trust what they say and will take it one day at a time!

I’m still working on putting away the Christmas decorations as I sort though them for the garage sale and will be deep cleaning the kitchen with no plans to leave the house at all today so will be in yoga pants and a purple long sleeve t-shirt all day.

I’m back to hot water and yogurt. The coffee experiment didn’t work out.

THIS WEEK’S TO DO LIST, PROJECTS & APPOINTMENTS
  • LAUNDRY & CLEANING I have a load of sheets going with a load of towels to do next today and a few blouses to iron. I’ll finish the de-decorating today and begin the deep clean.
  • GROCERIES & ERRANDS I think I’m good this week on groceries and just have 1 quick appointment on Wednesday morning.
  • RECIPE RESEARCH & MENU PLANNING I’m done through January 😀

WHAT’S ON THE DVR/TV
  • NETFLIX We started watching Vikings Valhalla
  • AMAZON PRIME We started watching RIG
  • CABLE Regular shows are starting to get back to normal so will be checking out what’s on the DVR. DISH is in dispute with FOX so I am missing a few shows, but refuse to start another streaming service just for 2-3 shows.

I love reading WWII romance stories. I just started the Last Summer at Chelsea Beach by Pam Jenoff.

Summer 1941. Young Adelia Montforte flees fascist Italy for America, where she is whisked away to the shore by her well-meaning aunt and uncle. Here, she meets and falls for Charlie Connally, the eldest of the four Irish-Catholic boys next door. But all hopes for a future together are soon throttled by the war and a tragedy that hits much closer to home.

Grief-stricken, Addie flees—first to Washington and then to war-torn London—and finds a position at a prestigious newspaper, as well as a chance to redeem lost time, lost family…and lost love. But the past always nips at her heels, demanding to be reckoned with. And in a final, fateful choice, Addie discovers that the way home may be a path she never suspected.”

My friend texted me and asked if I would be available to cat sit later in the week because they wanted to take a trip. I said of course I’d hang out and feed her sweet and adorable KitKat. Later that day she showed up with these beautiful flowers to say thank you!

Hello my Lovely Tamy!
I’m so sorry the coffee trick didn’t work – i wish that whole situation could be better for you.
Got most of Christmas down here too – just a bit more I want to do.
What a win – win….get to love on & take care of a sweet kitty. And you got prettiest flowers for it. 😉
Love your tips and that cranberry pound cake literally has me drooling! But the calm down one got me. Made me totally LOL.
I hope you have a very blessed rest of the week. xoxo

Me too on the coffee, but Jean mentioned some coffee flavor yogurt that I will check out the next time I go to the store. I’m not sure it will be the same as that hot flavorful and aromatic sip, but I’ll give it a try! Kitty time started last night and she IS SOOOOOOOO sweet. She immediately wanted to cuddle and play which I found delightful since she’s an older kitty! My week is hectic, but I’m stealing a few minutes here and there to get caught up and will be visiting you tonight!

I’m so sorry your coffee experiment didn’t work out. I’ve seen one brand locally that (think it was A&E) that has a coffee flavored yogurt. Actually, Chobani flip also has one. Not sure if either of those would work for you but thought I’d mention it. That cat and those flowers are both so pretty! Hope you have a wonderful week!

Adorable kitty and lovely flowers! Our weather here in the Detroit area is exactly the same as yours! We did get a few hours of sun the past two days – but everything else is around 40 and gray. I’m sick of it for sure! My body clock feels like spring is around the corner! I hope you have an amazing week!

My week is hectic, but I’m stealing a few minutes here and there to get caught up and will be visiting you tonight! We’re supposed to be clearer in the afternoons now, but that only mean colder nights which will ultimately be colder mornings 😀 Hope you’re having a GREAT week and that your body clock is right!
