Good Morning. Welcome to my Saturday feature . . .
I join Sandra. She provides most of the prompts. I add a few of my own when things pop into my head.
Let's get with it!
The weather . . . B.B.B.Brrr! Winter kind of in my neck of the woods. On Friday we had sun and 40 mile an hour winds!
We'll have wintery weather for the week. But mostly sun upper 30's in the morning then upper 60' in the afternoon.
On the breakfast plate . . . I am thinking Pancakes today. Wonder what the Cowboy will suggest.
I am wearing . . . Warm fleece pants for outside then I strip down to shorts and a tank for inside.
make me happy . . .
On my the menu . . .
Monday Mussels over Angel Hair Pasta, Salad (from the garden) a Baguette
Tuesday Back to Taco's again. We really do love 💕 them!
Wednesday Leftover Ham I cooked on Saturday, Scalloped Potatoes and Broccoli from . . . Guess where!
Thursday . . . Pork Cutlets, Stuffing and Green Beans
Friday . . . Split Pea Soup with Ham, B.L.T.'s
The To Do List . . .
P.T. on Monday no stopping at Mexican Market. Payday on Wednesday.
Plan a grocery list. We get paid this week so I will get all my house supplies. And fill the freezer. We ne d fresh fruit and veggies too.
The Cowboy is having knee replacement. On Monday I need to call and schedule a dental check before they can schedule surgery.
Always on the list Vacuum,sweep and mop
I need to mow leaves didn't get it done last week.
Check if seeds are out at ACE hardware. Maybe go to Tractor Supply on Thursday after payday to check on seeds and bulbs.
Still working on organizing books after moving shelves.
I wrote about the chaos over Here
Still trying to get the Studio organized.
And still trying to keep up with putting away clean laundry.
My 'Ta Da' moment . . . I managed to get all laundry washed and clean the pile of stuff from in front of dryer. I can sweep and mop now!
Still have my clothes to put away.
I am reading now . . .
On my TBR pile . . .
I have a pile right now. Lots if ARCs for tours, lot's of freebies from Christmas.
Here are a few
In the garden . . . There is so much I want to do.
I want to add a row of climbing Green Beans to shelter the Broccoli bed.
I want to start a bigger bed for Okra.
I am thinking of adding a bed along the fence for more Green Beans.
Only planning 1 to 4 Tomato plants. The Cowboy really doesn't like them. But he likes Salsa so maybe we need to talk! 😎🍅🌮
Planning more space for Cucumber 🥒 and Corn 🌽
In the studio . . . I had a super productive week last week. I was able to write a post about my Journaling.
My post is over Here
I have organized a lot and moved things around so I can be more productive.
We have agreed I need a new work surface. The table I moved in a few weeks ago is o.k. but doesn't really fill my needs and it is too big.
So I am shopping for a replacement. I am hoping to find a desk with a hutch that I can afford.
Coming soon . . .
To relax this week I will . . .
For weeks I have been wanting to go the library.
Or just sit in the greenhouse and look at my magazines
From the camera . . .
I hope your week is Sparkly!

On the plates this week . . .
Two pieces of Toast slathered in Peanut Butter just the way the Cowboy likes it?
This is my plate. The Cowboy doesn't eat store bought 🍅 and will only eat big fresh Tomatoes. Weird huh?
I was tired and trying to clean out the freezer. Chicken Fried Steak . . .
We always clean our plates when we have Chicken Fried Steak! He finished off the Fries too!
He didn't even save a bite for the dogs.
A lunch that reminds me of growing up. No Tomato Soup. Not a fan.
Sometimes the Cowboy has odd ideas. He wanted this Canned Ham on a Sandwich.
Just the way he wanted it. He used a Mexican Bread. I don't know what it's called but they are in the deli and cheap.
The Chicken I showed earlier was the leftover from this meal. I had made Mexican Chicken and Rice. The Cowboy isn't really a fan but he humors me because I love it! I served his with Leg quarter and made a big Nacho from a Chalupa shell
A chopped Salad I thought was great.
Tomato on the side. I ate them all.
Here's the Rustic Plate again. I used as a platter. Finished off those French Fries.
My lunch . . .

Good Morning friends. Today I am opening the door to my studio. So grab a cup of something warm and come inside . . .It is always cozy inside. This is my special place. The door is always closed and rarely do I have visitors.
