Good morning! How was your weekend? How are things looking for you in your little corner of the world this week?
The weather... The forecast for this week says it will be in the mid to upper eighties, bright and sunny, no rain. Sadly, it looks like our days of having the windows and doors open, and cheap electricity bills are done and over with for this year.
How I'm feeling... Productive. I managed to get almost all the dreaded paperwork done over the weekend. I still have a little more to do and have the phone calls to make today. I'm really hoping the calls won't lead to additional paperwork and unavoidable errands, but I can almost guarantee they will.
What's for breakfast... Berry banana fruit smoothies for this week.
What I'm reading... I have this stack right next to me ready and waiting for me to get started on.
On my TV... The only show I watch regularly is Grey's Anatomy. When I have TV on otherwise it's usually on Food Network. I do flip on the news for a bit most days, but thankfully feel no need to to have it on day and night like I did last year.
On the menu... I haven't done my usual menu planning the last two weeks. We were using up precooked meals I had in the freezer. I had a pan of baked ziti, some chili, Italian meatballs, and a shelf of individual meals that were packed from leftovers over the last couple of months. I reserved a couple of the individual meals for after our vaccines this week just in case I don't feel like cooking.
Last night our boys got together for dinner and very thoughtfully decided to include us. They brought over some fantastic pressed Cuban sandwiches from a new local place they recently discovered. The sandwiches are so good and unbelievably huge. I was only able to eat a quarter of mine for dinner - that's how big they are! The hubs made it through half of his and then complained all evening about being miserably full. We obviously have plenty leftover for tonight.
The plan for the rest of the week...
Tuesday - Italian chicken cutlets, garlic parmesan couscous, roasted asparagus
Wednesday - Applebee's Copycat Oriental Chicken Salad (using leftover chicken)
Thursday - Honey Garlic Shrimp and Veggie Stir Fry
Friday - Leftovers
Saturday - Individual freezer meals
Looking around the house... It's neat and tidy. My sweet kitty Nuggy boy is asleep under my desk, old man Beefy is sleeping on his little bed next to me. The other old man in the house is in the next room watching TV, and of course he has it on way too loud as usual *sigh*
To relax this week... I'll read blogs of course, and I'll probably get started on my book stack after getting my vaccine. My plan is to just take it easy for a day or two afterwards and get a head start on the Bout of Books Read-a thon.
Something I want to share... Our colorful SW Florida sunset sky.
