Happy Monday Friends!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! It was a good one here. It was filled with a little snow (boo) - but I know how living in the northwoods in February works, so I wasn't surprised. Areas around us got a LOT and so I'm thankful we just got a few inches. A few more is predicted tomorrow too, but then it looks pretty clear again for a while.
This past weekend we also had my daughter's big volleyball tourney! Her team started out a bit slow (as they were missing some players), but then they found their stride and went on to take 1st place in the Silver Division! Not too shabby. She loved playing and was excited to get a medal to add to her collection. ;)
We also started on a project around here (our laundry room) with success. Still some work to do. More on that later. On to the week ahead!
THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:
In the low 30's and cloudy. The sun does play peek-a-boo once in a while. Looks like some we may get 2 or 3 inches of snow tomorrow. Then the week ahead looks like 20's and 30's but free of snow. Next weekend may get in the 40's again! Yay!
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:
1/2 a plain bagel with lite veggie cream cheese and coffee.
RIGHT NOW I AM:
I'm actually listening to a couple of things at once. I'm listening to a meditative kind of Christian station on pandora, while listening to a Johnnie Lawson nature video at the same time. So right now it sounds like pretty sounding singer and guitar music is singing next to a stream with birds chirping away. Pretty cool. ;)
AS I LOOK OUTSIDE MY WINDOW:
Sun is peeking out right now! Come on sunshine! And it seems bright out as we'd had such little snow before that I'd gotten used to that. Once everything is covered with snow it really brightens up again. When the sun shines it's almost blinding!
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE:
Still pretty tidy, but I need to load the few dishes from last night. Next load of laundry ready to go in too! But it's nice and bright in my living and dining room as I sit and type this up. I've already got meatballs cooking in the slow cooker for tonight.
ON TODAY'S (& this week's) TO DO LIST:
I want to call some loved ones and catch up. Doing a fun day with my Mom. Daughter's volleyball and hockey practices on different nights. Ash Wednesday mass this week. Visit my MIL. Cook for my FIL. Get groceries. Exercise time! Might do more shoveling today (back deck needs it!).
I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to start Cursed Child book yet, or another one I've had lined up to read. Plus, I still have a fun pile of magazines I've been catching up on too.
ON THE TV TODAY:
So many good shows - so little time! There are so many shows on different subscribed services and series I'd love to binge watch and catch up on. I don't know which ones I'll actually proceed with yet though. I've got some cooking shows taped right now and a few movies on my DVR. Plus, I'm still catching up on Timeless. I did watch the Oscars last night - even though I didn't see a lot of the movies this year and wasn't too invested in anything. The mixed up ending with Best Picture was rather interesting. Lol
