Thankfulness

It is Thursday.

It is cold.

It is windy.

I am thankful for the following things(in no certain order).

Having my grandson staying with us for awhile.

The health of my family.

The love of my family.

Automobiles that are in good running order.

A stocked cupboard. 

My new weaving loom, it is a great source of entertainment for me this winter.

My husband has a hobby, this keeps him busy as well.

Books to read.

Today was short and sweet but no less important than any picture heavy post from the past.

God bless you all and stay safe out there.

Monday's Musings and Menus

I spent the weekend rolling rag balls to prepare for some more rugs. And now they say that there is snow on the way so all I gotta say is bring it on! I am ready for a few days of being inside and having nowhere to go or for that matter any way to do it if I wanted to.

Menus for the week:

Sunday(yesterday) we had football food 

Monday.....chili

Tuesday.....Jambalaya w/chicken and andouille and then I will add shrimps to mine as I serve it over rice. I have non shrimp lovers in my home. 

Wednesday.......chopped salad w/anything in the fridge leftover

Thursday........bacon, eggs, pancakes

Friday......turkey kielbasa with sauteed onions and peppers and cannellini beans and wilted kale.

Saturday.......Maybe going out to eat

So what is on your agenda and menu this week?

Weekly Ponderings

I have spent some time at the loom this week. And this is a peek at what was produced.



********************

Also spent some time getting prepared for the next rug. I love the actual looming time but the prep work, not so much! But it is a necessary step so I am trying to get myself in the habit of prepping for several rugs at a time. That might take me more time up front but it will allow me to sit at the loom for much longer once I get started. 

***********************

And this week I was thinking on a bigger scale (meaning the whole year 2016) so I ended up doing 2 pages in my journal. It was fun and I wanted to share it with you. I will also have to say that I could have done several more pages if the week had just been longer!


Hope you all had a great week!

Sunshine Friday

It is cold outside but at least the sun is shining. I love sunshine! It gives me my "get up and go". I've got sunsh-i-n-e............. on a cloudy
day. Okay that song will be stuck in my head all day now.

*******************************************

I have been getting outside this week for a walk (at least a mile) even though our cold weather is back. When it's cold outs-i-d-e......I've got the month of May. Don't say I didn't warn you! But I guess the cold weather is good since it makes your system work harder to stay warm, thus burning more calories.

****************************************
This weekend is the big game. And although I am not a huge fan I can get into this one and enjoy it along with the "football crew" . I guess you'd say..... Now the football crew is a group of cronies that all get together to watch the games throughout the whole season. Now they don't care who is playing or even who is winning for that matter. As long as there is lots of good food. And that is where I come in! What can make me feel this way?  So for the Superbowl the menu will be as follows:

Baked ham and cheese sliders

Hamburger sliders with all the toppings

Hot wings

grilled baked potato wedges

grilled carrots

relish tray
broccoli,cauliflower,bell peppers,green onions,carrots,celery,radishes,olives, sweet pickles,baby dills 

chip, pretzels, dip and salsa

Texas Sheet Cake

Well let me leave you with this
