HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY

We had a productive, but also a lazy weekend here. I was able to catch up on a bunch of paperwork though I am NO where near done! I was able to complete more of my "reading" corner in the master bedroom and hung my newly stained shelf in there also.  I read somewhere that your dresser an nightstand tops should be clear for a more soothing "air" to the room.  Well, a clear dresser top will NEVER happen at our house, but the shelf is going to help A LOT!  I need to make another one for hubby's side of the room.
We had a quiet Valentine's Day dinner at home, but went out for lunch at one of my favorite seafood restaurants and were not disappointed.  We also rented the movie, The Martian.  We really enjoyed this movie - the possibilities of space and the will to survive are so mind boggling.
WEATHER OUTSIDE
It is gray and overcast with a threat of a thunderstorm soon.  It's supposed to be warmer this week and I am NOT ready for warm weather!

We're still just watching whatever comes our way.  We're still working long days.

CRAFTS & PROJECTS
I made a few prototypes this past week for some really neat things, but want to perfect them a bit more before I share them.

HOUSE PROJECTS
LOL this is a never ending category, but we are hoping to have the house in working order by the time we host Easter.  It is possible. It is even probable. WE WILL SUCCEED!

I'm getting a replacement stove on Tuesday as I'm having a continuous issue with uneven heating.

There is still A LOT of trim work to do, but I love my "Tom Sawyer meets the Waltons" look for the kitchen.  I did get a few shelves done in the kitchen and LOVE having ingredients at hand!

  1. I really want to see The Martian. I tried to get it this weekend as well but couldn't find one at a Redbox close enough to us. I've heard the books is very good as well. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  3. Wow id say you were very productive! We also watched The Martian. I am a new blogger and it made me happy to see someone else watched the same movie as us. (what did you think of it?) Love seeing all these recipes, I hope to try some in the future.

    1. Welcome to blogging! We loved the Martian - I just love how they showed the science part without getting dry, in fact almost making it funny at times and then the teamwork to make the rescue happen. I especially loved the character (can't remember his name) that thought up the rescue and his demonstration using Jeff Daniels pen, funny but real how he put his whole being into figuring this out and his office was a riot.

      Hope you enjoy the recipes you try and have a wonderful weekend.
