HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY week 4 of 2017

As many of you know I have been working to get my new website, Chasing MY Life, up and running.  Well, it's up and it's running.  It still needs some tweaking, but all in good time. I will mirror post here for awhile and eventually just use this site as my personal recipe box. Come over and visit.  Tell me what you think about the new site.
OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE
We have had a torrential week of rain with major flooding in the area.  Fortunately we have not been flooded here in the house, only the garage and we did end up with 2 fairly severe leaks that make me think of the old house in It's A Wonderful Life when they first moved in.  All I can say is thank god for beach towels and buckets!  Hubby is waiting for things to dry out a bit so we can assess the damage and do the repairs.  Once the rain moved through we ended up with severe winds that required emptying the backyard of anything not nailed down, but on the up side it's helping to dry things off up on the roof.

Today though is GORGEOUS! We are supposed to be sunny all week.  Unfortunately this close to the coast I NEVER bank on anything.  The torrential rain we had last week occurred while we were only under a 20% chance of rain and those days started out gorgeous too.

ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE
Ensure Clear and coffee.

AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE
It looks pretty good.  I had a very productive week stuck inside with the rain.  I was able to go through the baking cabinet and the linen closet and took another 5 bags to the women's shelter.

WEEKLY TO DO LIST & HOUSE PROJECTS
I've been up and mostly down with laryngitis and a cold or something last week also so will take it fairly easy this week.  I may be making a doctor's appointment otherwise.  I just have ZERO energy! With NO immunity because of the SLE hubby thinks I picked up a bug from all the digging in the filthy dirt (the local cats as well as my cousin's cats had been using that area as a BIG cat box) it last week. I wore gloves, but evidently that wasn't enough.

HOMEMAKING/COOKING TIP
FAVORITE PHOTO FROM THE CAMERA
Between storms hubby kept plugging away on the fencing.  He was able to get the new downspout area done which I for some reason did not yet get a picture of as well as this section near the utilities.  Eventually there will be a short privacy fence keeping all these utility pieces out of sight.
