My goodness, the end of February is almost here. Where did the month go?
It's time for another Happy Homemaker Monday with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. Click here if you'd like to join in .
Moderate temperatures forecast until Tuesday (75 degrees) and Wednesday (80 degrees - no, no, no!) but they go back down again at the end of the week. For most of the year, Virginia weather and I do not get along at all.
On my reading pile:::
Still working my way through the reading pile - no change from last week. I have made an effort to spend more time reading so hopefully, I'll get at least one book finished this week. I added this to my collection - couldn't resist the great price at Costco. It's a beautiful book.
On my TV:::
No Mercy Street or Victoria last night. We finished Season Two of Outlander and have to wait until September for the next installment of the adventures of Claire and Jamie Fraser. I've been watching Edward the King on PBS Passport.
On the menu for this week:::
Steak, I think, will be on the menu tonight but after that, no clue. Vic will be traveling so no doubt it will be snack-type food for me.
On my to-do list:::
- Volunteer shift at the gift shop
- Theater outing this week with a girlfriend - Vic and I bought tickets in December for an upcoming show but he won't be able to make it.
- Starting a Declutter Challenge March 1 (see below)
- Tax prep appointment with our bookkeeper
No Wilton class after all this weekend - thoroughly disgusted with Michael's over the whole thing. We signed up for four sessions in the month of February which was the only month that Vic would be home every Saturday. The instructor decided to cram four classes into three so we made plans for the fourth Saturday, then she cancelled the third session and rescheduled it for the fourth Saturday (I could change my plans but Vic couldn't so that meant I would be going alone) and then she rescheduled again after I'd already changed everything I had scheduled to accommodate the new time she was requesting. I was so fed up, I told her I would like a refund for the sessions we would not be getting and if she couldn't arrange that, then please forward the name of a supervisor or manager who could. So disappointing.
Looking around the house:::
One load of laundry and unload the dishwasher. Working hard to keep clutter at bay.
Beautiful roses for our 24th wedding anniversary yesterday
Something fun to share:::
I'm starting this Declutter Challenge on March 1. If you'd like a set of your own stickers for your planner, journal, or calendar, you can find them at Lisa Lorene Plans on Etsy.
Today is also Kahlua Day. Do you have a favorite Kahlua beverage? I sometimes put the tiny bottles in the toe of our Christmas stocking so we can enjoy it in our coffee with lashings of whipped cream on top. It's a version of Irish Coffee; I think it's just called Kahlua Coffee.
What I'm wearing today:::Black yoga pants, white long-sleeved shirt, flip flops.
Bible Verse, Devotional:::
If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. (Romans 12:8)
