Good Afternoon! What a busy day it has been here on the old funny farm. I am exhausted just thinking of all that I have accomplished since 6 a.m. I realized that I had to get my Happy Homemaker post written though or it would be Tuesday instead. Happy Homemaker is a series of posts by women that are proud to be homemakers and it is hosted each week by Sandra at Diary of a Stay At Home Mom
*** THE WEATHER***
Cold, snowy and truly not looking like it did just a week or so ago when it seemed as though spring was here. I am very disappointed with the weather, but I know Mother Nature is testing us to see how upset she can possibly make us before spring gets here. I just hope that she has not destroyed all of my beautiful flowers that were starting to bloom.
*** AS I LOOK OUT MY WINDOW ***
Gloomy, snow flurries and windy. What more could you possibly say about winter. It looks cold outside. I do see a cardinal on the bird feeder and I believe it is shivering where it sits.
*** RIGHT NOW I AM *** & *** THINKING***
I have dinner in the crockpot. I feel it is a good day for beef stew. I also hear the washer as it is spinning wildly, finishing up a blanket that had to be washed as one of the hedgehogs pooped on it this morning as my grandbaby was playing with the cute little stinker. I also am writing this and thinking about the rest that I have to do and when I might get it accomplished.
*** ON MY TV ***
I have discovered a new series on Netflix that I am enjoying. Sweet Magnolias is the name of it and I am really enjoying it. I believe there are two seasons, but I have only watched 4 or 5 episodes so far.
*** ON THE MENU ***
Today is beef stew and corn bread , Banana Cream Pie for dessert
Tuesday - Fish and Macaroni and Cheese, Peas
Wednesday - Balsamic Chicken Sheet Pan dinner
Thursday - Taco Salad or Tamales
I will be at my daughters on Friday and Saturday as we are going to a hockey game on Friday night and we will be going to hear the Booth Brothers on Saturday evening.
*** ON MY READING LIST ***
I am currently finished with the Trouble in Texas series that I was reading and I am happy to say I enjoyed all three books. Now I am reading :
I am finding it to be funny and very interesting to learn more as to how she got her start in acting. She is such a talented woman and many female actresses owe a lot to her and those that blazed the path early on in this field.

No time this week. I will include my plans here. I am working tomorrow through Friday and then travel to my daughter's house. Hockey game Friday night, kids sale Saturday morning, Booth Brothers on Saturday evening, come home Sunday morning,
*** LOOKING AROUND ***
I see a bit of dirt on the floor, a desk that needs cleaned off, and a couch that I would love to be sitting on reading my book. No time for that either, I am sure.
*** FROM THE CAMERA***
A bottle of Soaks from PZ. This is our Green Tea and Lemongrass and it is great for mosquitos in the summer time. You can spray it on your clothes, skin, etc. It is safe to use, even on pets.

My granddolls' class as it seems many have been out sick recently.

*** BIBLE ***
