Monday Mania

This past weekend it's been pretty chilly here & we've been trying to stay warm without turning the pellet stoves on.  It hasn't been too bad.  I personally like snuggling under a blanket.  Willy?  Well, he likes to snuggle under the blanket too - he gets a mite snippy if you take his sweater off.  I told him if he wasn't such a hot-blooded-little-Latino-dog, he wouldn't be such a whiner when the cold weather hits.

It was one of those mornings, after one of those tossy-turny nights where you just really don't feel like getting up.  But-cha do. 

Got to school & a couple of the hot-blooded-little-Latino-7th graders decided to start my morning off right with a fight.  Hell-O Monday!!!  The rest of the day seemed pretty uneventful after that.  I did win a prize on Friday when I put in for our 'Dollar-Donut-Day 50/50 Raffle'.  I had a choice of some fall-ish knick-knack stuff (like stuff I'm trying to get rid of at the yard sale & now in the donate box) or I could wait until today & get a mum.  I chose the mum - it's a huge bright yellow one.  I have a 3 already but not a yellow one.  I love mums.  And generally they're not a plant I kill easily.  A big plus for me AND the plant!

While at school, I got a voicemail from the bank, telling me I'd gotten the smidgen more money that I needed to complete a couple of projects before winter.  Woo Hoo!!  Now we'll just see how far that money will go.  I'd like a small front porch put on, the deck for the pool & the electric for the filter/pump and the Princess needs 2 new windows for her room.

King Turd put up the louvered doors to the hallway.  We bought them the other day at the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store for $3.  Yeah!!  One Honey-do off the list!

King Turd was home today & helped get one of my favorite cold weather, comfort food meals ready.  We had toasted garlic bread (it has pieces of garlic in the bread - not the kind with garlic butter that you eat with spaghetti) then we make our own garlic butter with minced garlic & garlic powder and we add Velveeta Cheese.  Now I know some won't say that Velveeta is cheese - but it makes these sandwiches so gooey & yummy... mmmmmm.... The we also have Campbell's Tomato Soup (yes it MUST be this kind for me) and Chicken Noodle.

A load of towels have been folded from the dryer & put away, a load of clothes has been washed & is now in the dryer.

Now it's almost time for bed and we get to start all over tomorrow - hopefully minus the fight in the morning.

Bye!  Love you!  Have a good day, Dear!

PS.  No news about Ella, thank you for your prayers for her. 


  1. I'll be praying for Ella. My grandma has Alzheimers and it's a very sad thing to see. She also had another stroke (due to the stress of my mother's event) and we have seen significant decline over the last couple of weeks.

    My MIL always says "the golden years aren't so golden" so I guess we need to enjoy life today. Who knows what our tomorrow is going to look like.

    Take care you of yourself.

  2. Thanks Liz. We're going today to see Ella. The Princess is using the ruse that she needs a piano lesson. And that hopefully will bring her comfort, since piano has been her 'life'. It's such an ingrained habit in her life that it will hopefully be something she can do by rote.
