I’m linking up for Hello Monday so please go here to see Heather, Lindsay, Johanna, and Tanya.
How was your weekend? Mine was just what I needed and that was a whole lot of time at home. We had a five day week back to school with activities and meetings after school and sadly on Thursday, a funeral visitation in my hometown. The Dad of our very dear friends (like friends for 40 years) succumbed to ALS. The mom is my mom’s closest friend and the visitation was 3 weeks to the day after my Dad’s in the same funeral home. My husband, the boys and I left around 3:30 and got home around 8.
So, Friday after school I did grocery pick up while my boys had video game club at school. I picked them up and then we were in for the night. I made baked potato soup and we watched some tv.
Saturday morning I started this book. It is about Ernest Hemingway’s third wife and is historical fiction. I have read The Paris Wife by her, as well. This book will take me a little bit longer to get through, but I’m finding it very interesting as some of it takes place in Spain. (I’m a Spanish teacher and did study abroad in Spain.)
Yes, it is dark outside. I can’t sleep in very late so I embrace it and enjoy coffee and time to read!
This is what happened over night!
I channeled Marie Kondo after watching a few episodes on Netflix and immediately took it to the consignment store for $32 cash back. I took what they didn’t want immediately to Goodwill. I also did the bank and the library. This month I am decluttering and watching my spending habits (more than normal).
I did buy a bottle of a red blend wine and enjoyed it with my pizza. We stayed in again Saturday night and enjoyed more time with our boys and dog.
Sunday was a day for meal prep, Trader Joe’s, Dollar Tree, and helping a son go to a railroad track to film a video project, a nap, some laundry and some tv.
Dinner was potato skins (saved from the soup Friday night – go me on not wasting food!), cobb salad, and soup from the freezer from my friend K.
Saturday we tried the new Little Ceasars $6 thin crust pizza. It’s almost as good as Domino’s thin crust.
I purchased new meal prep containers at Dollar Tree. The red are breakfasts of zucchini, turkey sausage, and egg casserole and the blue are lunch of grilled chicken, rice (just a tiny bit), and green beans. I am trying to eat low carb but not totally no carb. Also, I have cut up celery and cucumbers and hard boiled eggs.
We have another five day week but then a three day weekend with no school on Monday to observe MLK Jr. Day.
How was your weekend? Did you get any snow? I hear we may have a chance for more in about a week.
Have a great Monday!
