Happy Monday

The weather in my neck of the woods:
Mild and in the mid-50s. Ethan calls it June-uary.

Things that make me happy:
Knitting, playing cards or hanging out with the boys, lunchtime with coworkers.

Book I'm reading:
I have been (*gasp!*) too tired to read lately. I have The Red Pyramid and The Hunger Games in the queue. It doesn't help that The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is a seriously tough act to follow.

What's on my TV today:
Veronica Mars

On the menu for dinner:
Leftover Chinese. I'm just not up for cooking.

On my To Do List:
Find freezer recipes, buy ingredients for cooking for the coming month, clean out the jeep and install baby seat.

New recipe I tried or want to try soon:
Cinnamon Rolls
Pizza Crazy Bread
Tangy Beef Stroganoff

In the craft basket:
The baby blanket (border still isn't finished)
The boys' sweaters (I'm running out of yarn and they still don't have sleeves)

Looking forward to this week:
Ob appointment, Chinese New Year

Tips and Tricks:
Buy as many pages of the current Forever Stamp as possible.
Keep forever stamps and a few envelopes in your wallet or everyday bag.

My favorite blog post this week:
A co-worker's status: "Some people are like slinkies. They aren't worth much, but they do make you smile when you push them down the stairs."

Blog Hopping:
Full Bellies, Happy Kids

No words needed:

Lesson learned the past few days:
Do not play Magic the Gathering with Ethan. He is really, really good at it.

On my mind:
How to afford a lawyer
Missing my farm

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
A perennial favorite:
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.-- 1 Chronicles 16:34
