For Today... February 6th, 2017

Outside my window...Its still dark out. It a brisk 19 out, but they say we are to have sunny skies and highs of 40...whoo hoo!

I am thinking... about plans that are in the works to spend a day with my niece who is up from Florida next week.

I am thankful... for time spent with my boys. Our youngest stopped over yesterday to help with some settings on my husbands phone, and then stayed to watch the Super Bowl with us.

One of my favorite things... french toast bagels with brown sugar cream cheese

I am wearing... a hoodie and black fleece comfy pants

I am creating... Still working on the afghans, and just started a mermaid tail afghan. I am also working on some snail and teacup amigurumis. This is one of the snails
And I just finished this Valentine wreath for my front door

I am reading (read) /watching (watched) / listening... Watching Greys, and just started reading Sisterland

I am hoping... to get our taxes finished and submitted so we can get them back quickly so I can plan a weekend getaway!

In my kitchen... Menu for the week:
Monday ~ spaghetti, garlic bread and a salad
Tuesday ~ honey and pecan glazed mahi mahi, green beans, rice and rolls
Wednesday ~ eggs, bacon, fried potatoes and toast
Thursday ~ pizza
Friday ~ bratts, beans and peaches
Saturday ~ not sure yet
Sunday ~ going out for lunch after church, then probably a sandwich or something light later in the evening

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Monday ~ housework, laundry, quick trip to Joann's, crochet, work out
Tuesday ~ work, work out
Wednesday ~ work
Thursday ~ work
Friday ~ grocery shopping, errands, nails done, crochet, work out
Saturday ~ not sure
Sunday ~ church, lunch, home to veg

From the board room... From my Planners board

  6. French Toast bagels sound so yummy right now! And the snail is so cute!

  7. Hmmm, I was going to say exactly the same thing Amy above me just did! I love the quote, too. I need to remind myself of that more often.
