Monday Musings

I was just about to go get busy with some chores when my cat hopped up in my lap… so I guess it’s time to sit down and write a blog post because obviously I can’t move now.

Hubby was given an Amazon Echo Dot at a conference he worked at last week and my favorite thing Alexa does is play “Healing Music.”  It sounds like the music they play in the room when you get a massage.

My mom has convinced me to start using essential oils, as she’s been using them for a little while now and is seeing some benefits.  I know friends who have used them and loved them, but they always sounded a bit “granola” to me… but who am I kidding, I’m a granola wannabe, so after her using them and reading up on all the things, I have to say that I’m intrigued.  I’m starting slow with a few oils from mom even though I want all the things.  My youngest (the allergic-to-everything chica) loves the peppermint oil, and has been putting it on every day.  I’ve been diffusing a few different ones in the house.  Not gonna lie – between that and my Alexa music, I’m feeling pretty zen right now.

I am about 95% done with my Christmas shopping.  GO ME.

What’s on the menu this week?  Yesterday I made Fettucine Alfredo.  Today is Cheeseburger Soup, Tuesday is Chicken Gyros on homemade Naan, Wednesday is ribs in the crock pot (trying a new recipe), Thursday is Tacos/Rice and Friday is homemade pizza.

I have always wanted to do an antique family picture!  While we were at Six Flags this past weekend we took one.  We weren’t overly impressed with the costume selection, but it was kind of fun…

Did you know there are whole online communities of people who keep planners?  It’s like scrapbooking with a calendar.  The planner I use is one I made myself, but I’ve gotten a few planner stickers lately and I do have to admit, they make planning my day seem a little more fun.  Look up “planner stickers” on Etsy and you’ll find a whole new world.  Or maybe it’s one  you already knew about… but it’s pretty cool.

I started a new book last night for the first time in a while.  I’ve missed reading but I’ve been busy with other things.  My poor Goodreads account is feeling quite neglected I’m sure.  It was nice to get lost in a book, though.

I’ve been considering picking back up writing.  I’m not sure I like my book anymore, though… so maybe it’s time to start something new?

Well, I’ve been sitting at my computer for an hour already and none of my chores are getting done.  Guess I’d better go get busy.  Poor Ginny.  She’s not going to like it when I get up… Oh well!  Have a great week, friends!
