Drizzly rain yesterday and more of the same today. Temperatures are up and down this week, from the high 40s to the mid 60s.
On my reading pile:::
Still working my way through No Distance Too Far by Lauraine Snelling (Home to Blessing Book) although I've been a little distracted by some new cookbooks. More on those in my end of the month review.
On my TV:::
Mercy Street, Victoria, and I'm starting The House of Eliot while Vic is gone. It's the story of two sisters who go from having wealth and privilege to having nothing but a passion for fashion design. It's been years since I've watched it.
On the menu for this week:::
It's just me until Friday so meals are pretty skimpy. I made a huge batch of Wendy's Chili - The Whole 30 version - and there's some leftover steak. Friday night will be Chinese food to celebrate Vic's return and then I have to come up with something creative for the weekend. We didn't end up making the Thai Coconut Chicken Soup so that's probably dinner on Saturday and since we loved the One-Pan Herb-Crusted Roasted Salmon that will do for Sunday but I'll serve it with steamed broccoli as the roasted broccoli wasn't really a success.
On my to-do list:::
Nothing but an idea for a Christmas ornament swap I am going to participate in this summer with the ladies from the Magical Holiday Home Forums. I think I've settled on the final idea. Little does Vic know that his time at the ornament factory is about to begin!
Looking around the house:::
It's too quiet. I really miss Vic when he's gone. Thank goodness these are only short trips in his new job and none of the six or seven month deployments.
From the camera:::
The organized linen closet - I tackled that last week and am very pleased with the outcome.
Something fun to share:::
What I'm wearing today:::
Fleece and velour as usual.
Bible Verse, Devotional:::
Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. (1 Chronicles 16:9)
