I love the look of this kitchen - the curtain on the window, blowing in the breeze, the little white kitten sitting by the stove, the red chair, the yellow walls . . . so pretty!
First of all this morning, prayers go out to Vee at http://ahavenforvee.blogspot.com. Vee's mother passed away on the 15th. I know that this is a very difficult time for her and her family. Please think of her today, and keep her in your prayers, she is such a sweet lady.
The sun is trying to peek through today! Yesterday it rained all day long, melted some of the snow and made lots of puddles. It was 35 degrees when I got up with my husband at 4:30 a.m. I think the high today will be almost 40 degrees! I'll open a few windows for a while and let some fresh air in - this time of year, I just need fresh air, whether it's 35 degrees or 5 degrees!!
Remember making Valentine boxes at school with crepe paper and construction paper? We also used to make pouches that we would hang on the wall for the class to put our Valentines in. I remember my mother used to set the card table up in the living room for us to write out our Valentines on. I'm not sure why she did that, but it sure is a fun memory. At school we would make a list of all the kids in our class, then, we would carefully select the perfect Valentine . . . for the "Perfect Valentine", there was at least one or two in each class! Valentines were so much prettier then, don't you think?
Last week, I posted my menu for the week. It worked so well! I stuck to it, and I saw the numbers on the scale go . . . down!! I do much better with a list - so, here goes - week #2.
Monday - Homemade pizza with whole wheat crust, lots of veggies, lean hamburger and low fat cheese.
Tuesday - Sweet and sour cabbage with turkey sausage and oven roasted potatoes.
Wednesday - Roast chicken with rosemary and lemon, steamed carrots, left-over roasted potatoes, fruit.
Thursday - Shepherd's pie (Low cal), raw veggies with light dressing, Jell-O with whipped topping.
Friday - Light Quiche Lorraine, spinach salad, whole wheat roll.
Have a wonderful day, think good thoughts, and smile - it makes people wonder what you're up to . . . ;0)
