We had a long and busy weekend. One day I took Mom to one of her appointments (and forgot to bring chicken food home), one day Hubby worked and I worked outside, and we had a family Thanksgiving Sunday (my husband's side of the family).
I still had garden hoses that needed put away, garden stakes to put away, and other stuff. I just couldn't get it done earlier with everything going on. I got the camping coolers put away, dug out the leaf blower, because everyone was dragging leaves into the house.
My mind has been a whirlwind lately. I literally brewed a pot of coffee without putting grounds in the filter.
Sorry for the lack of posts. It's been a crazy schedule.
I'm joining Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.
I will link up when she posts today.
The weather . . .
Sunday it rained all day long. Today it's 38°/25°F, Sunny
How I am feeling this morning . . .
Tired. Woke up to dirty dishes in the sink and the dishwasher is next to the sink. My husband hogged the covers, so I couldn't sleep and was up at 5:30am.
On my mind . . .
One list at a time, one task at a time....focus woman, focus.
On the breakfast plate . . .
Not sure. I have to bake something. Coffee so far.
Right now I am . . .
Posting this and sipping hot coffee in hopes to gain energy.
What I am wearing this morning . . .
Right now? PJ's, robe and slippers.
On my TV . . .
Create TV (cooking channel), anything that looks good on netflix.
What I am listening to . . .
On the menu this week . . .
-Chicken Tortilla Soup
New recipe I tried . . .
Banana cake ( Sally's Baking Addiction). I, however, swapped out the granulated sugar (cut it in half too) with monkfruit, cut 1/2 cup of the butter and used home canned unsweetened applesauce, used homemade vanilla, and sprinkled mini chocolate chips over the top vs. the cream cheese frosting. I mainly tried this due to having bananas that needed used up.
It turned out delicious, but if I was gifting it to someone, I would definitely make the cream cheese frosting for it. I'd also add another 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon, walnuts (unless they have a nut allergy), and some nutmeg.
I'm trying new dessert recipes, so I can have good recipes on hand for when a friend or family could use help with meals. A good friend of ours, suddenly lost her husband (very un-expectantly). My go-to dessert has been my Mom's Cherry Delight. However, the price of store bought pie filling is horrible right now.
From the camera . . .
Looking around the house . . .
It's a hot mess.
To relax this week I will . . .
Probably take a nap, ha ha!
On my prayer list . . .
Mom (her surgery is Tuesday to remove cancer from her leg), our good friend Becky who just lost her husband and has two boys.
