We took Fuzzy downstairs last night. She had a blast! Of course she gets the run of the place and once she re-familiarized herself with the surroundings she was “at home”. I think I’m ready to move back downstairs myself……it was 58 degrees upstairs. Also it doesn’t seem as noisy downstairs. I could be wrong when the neighbors have a [too] full house though. Still it’s warmer I think.
not too bad during the day but a wee bit chilly at night. It seems to stay about 20 degrees warmer upstairs than it is outside.
Right now I am…. sitting at the computer, eating maple brown sugar oatmeal and drinking a cuppa hot cocoa. I’ve already fixed hubby his sausage egg cheese biscuit and have also given him a cuppa hot cocoa. Breakfast is a new thing…..we haven’t eaten breakfast in a long time.
On my Kindle….
Still reading Waiting for Belinda by June Bryan Belfie. I think I remmeber why I don’t remember reading it……it jumps around so much and is kind of confusing. I may just re-shelve it and find something else to read.
Also reading “The Story” by Max Lucado and Randy Frazee. This is a 30 week sermon series at church, so only 1 chapter a week to read. This week we are to read chapter 6 I believe.
TV on my Computer this week…..
Home Fires on PBS
Random YouTube videos
Favorite Find on Pinterest……
I’ve been pinning a little this past week……This Cotton Candy on Glow Sticks looks like fun for next Halloween, or maybe Christmas Parade. CAUTION Don’t click on the picture/link on the pinterest page though…..it doesn’t go where it’s supposed to.
I have a menu this week. Are you surprised? I am. LOL!
Breakfast: (we are going to start eating a little bit) brown cinnamon & sugar oatmeal for me, and homemade sausage egg cheese biscuits for hubby this week
Lunches: leftovers, or I do have some heat and eat stuff we can eat as well.
Sunday: Mushroom & Swiss and Jalapeno & Pepperjack burgers with party mix (generic chex mix)
Monday: Spaghetti and homemade garlic bread sticks
Tuesday: leftover hamburgers from Sunday, with fries
Wednesday: most likely eating at church, unless they fix something we don’t like. if we don’t eat at church I’ll probably fix Mac & Cheese
Thursday: either beef stew (it’s canned, will heat in crockpot) or chili with saltines and butter
Friday: which ever we didn’t have yesterday
Saturday: **NEW** Flaky Biscuit Pizza Cups will make these either tonight or tomorrow night so we can heat and eat them
Sunday: I need to use the freezer meals I have, so I plan to cook potatoes in the crockpot for mashed taters, and also cook the cube steak & gravy. MMMmmm

From the camera….
Fuzzy says it was cold this morning. She slept under the covers again last night. silly girl, LOL!
Tips and Tricks……
I LOVE it when hubby goes grocery shopping with me! Am I strange? He went with me yesterday and I didn’t really have a menu plan and no real list, but we came out with enough food for 3 meals a day for this week as well as snacks.
On my prayer list…..
Youngest son to get a “real job” before winter so he isn’t out walking in the cold for 3 or so hours a night delivering papers supposedally he is quitting the paper route today, since he has a day time job at the new candy store across the street. Now the new par of the prayer request is that the are able to pay him.
- Extra money so I can get my beetle fixed
- the new saturday card playing group to be well behaved and not a bunch of trouble makers
