I'm joining Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.
The weather . . .
We went from 60-70's to 50's and rain, and this week we'll barely see 50°F with lows in the 30's. I was successful at crossing off "wash rugs" and they dried outside before the weather turned.
Right now I am . . .
Posting this blog post and sipping coffee.
Thinking and pondering . . .
Well for starters, I'm searching to see if they sell metal ridge caps that are wider than 10 x 10 inches, and possibly covering the coop with a tarp until we figure things out.
We have another set back with the chicken coop roofing. He hand built the rafters, and the roofing he cut is too short for the ridge cap by about 2 inches. Not what we needed with the holidays and such. Otherwise the ridge cap would have been up last night.
How I am feeling . . .
Tired. However, I taught my granddaughter how to crochet. In the amount of time she was here, she learned to chain stitch and by the end of the night, I taught her how to go back the second row using single crochet. She left with a bag of yarn and a crochet hook, and a happy kiddo. I fear though, she will drive her Mom mad with questions now (ha ha!).
On the breakfast plate . . .
Egg, bacon, and cheese breakfast sandwich.
On the lunch plate . . .
Have no idea yet.
On the dinner plate . . .
On the menu . . .
What I am wearing . . .
PJ's - still sipping coffee and getting this posted.
On my reading pile . . .
On my TV this week . . .
Christmas on Mistletoe Farm (Netflix). I picked this randomly, when I my husband worked overtime, and found it quite fun to watch. Very quirky, and at one point you'd think of it as a musical. A father with 5 kids inherits a farm and the animals with it. The town is very small, and the funny part is there is a woman in the town who crochets/knits for everyone and everything, including kid goats. Everything in this movie is surrounded by something crocheted in the scene. Family friendly.
Looking around the house . . .
Update on the home renovations/repairs/improvements:
When we moved in this house, the entire kitchen, and master bath had zero hardware on the cabinets. I bought plain wood knobs, and hand painted them with acrylic paints to appear like weather paint. They have lasted 14 years, and still look the same as the day I painted them.
I've been installing new hardware in the master bath. I've had it in a box since last year, and we got so far behind, painting in there did not happen (yet). I decided to install all the new hardware, and will beautify as the weather sees fit. Now I'm not shuffling the box around to sweep and mop.
To-do list . . .
-make a breakfast dish
-put trash out, including a lawn chair I keep forgetting about
-work on menu/grocery list for the week
From the camera . . .
Marinated cheese. A first time trying, and why I wanted a basil plant indoors. You can't buy fresh basil this time of year (atleast here anyway). Delicious.
