The hallway flooring project continues, and yes we had some hiccups to delay the final edging of the steps. Heck we didn't get any trim done either.
My brain wasn't working when I bought the new blinds. I scrubbed both hallway windows, and we installed one. Only to find out I bought the wrong ones (too short). We got a good laugh, loaded them into the truck and luckily they had two left of the right length.
We love the new blinds. They had 3 brackets and the blinds snapped right in. No messing around with metal slide in brackets. Oh, the best part? They are cordless and I love, love, love that. I'll have photos to share as we get closer finishing (which could take 2-3 more weekends at this rate).
Over the weekend, I managed to clean the very top shelf in a kitchen cupboard. Guess what I found?
I'm joining Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.
The weather outside is. . .
14°F, snowing and blowing and a brisk cold wind out of the northeast. Nasty weather. There is really bad drifting over the roads. Daughter K got home last night and said the roads in the county she works were all clear. Once she hit our county the roads were terrible. I saw one snow plow yesterday. They are really bad at keeping our roads clear. There are many delays, some closings and our county and others are under level 1 emergency.
How I am feeling this morning . . .
Cold. The northeast wind makes this house so cold.
On my mind . . .
On the breakfast plate . . .
Coffee so far. It may be a round of blueberry pancakes. I guess I decide that later. Maybe some sausage too.
On my reading pile . . .A 1933 copy of The Earth Turns, by Gladys Hasty Carroll. Fun fact. The book was the 2nd best selling book in 1933. I obtained it from a library book sale years ago and found it on one of the bookshelves.
On my TV . . .
Comedies on Netflix. We just need some uplifting movies.
On the menu this week . . .
Ham, roasted brussel sprouts
Tuna and noodle, mashed potatoes, corn
Soup of some kind? Not sure yet on the rest of the menu
From the camera . . .
Pretty much sums up my weekend. The dollar store had scrub brushes that worked perfect to clean up the windows.
Looking around the house . . .
I have one last box of books ready to donate. I laughed when I opened a cupboard in the garage the other day. My husband saved all his college books. I told him he's next to purge, ha ha!
Oh, and Daughter K still hasn't taken down her Christmas tree she put up in my living room (sigh). She's working a lot, and strange hours, so it'll come down on her next day off hopefully.
New recipe I tried or want to try . . .
Muffin recipe I have not had time to try yet.
To relax this week I will . . .
Read, crochet or journal.

On my prayer list . . .
Mom. She wants to get the new vaccine, but has reservations about getting it. She's had bad allergic reactions to medications in the past that landed her in the hospital.
