Today’s rambling thoughts

The last two mornings I’ve had to get up on shovel. Neither day had a lot of snow. Monday probably had 2-3 inches and today had a dusting to an inch. But, I am one of those people who has to have a clear driveway. I am obsessed with being able to see the blacktop!

Typically I go out and shovel the driveway before Richard leaves for work and then after he leaves I go out and clean off where his truck is in the driveway, the walkway, the sidewalk and the back steps. Yesterday, Richard took my car to work so the snow around the truck never got shoveled. This meant there was more snow there. Also, the snow melted yesterday and refroze under the truck. I found that ice today and manage to slip on it.  Oh well… I didn’t hurt anything but my ego.

Today I left the house for the first time in a while. Last week I wasn’t feeling well so there were quite a few days that I didn’t go anywhere. Today I went to the grocery store. This meant that I needed to make a grocery list and menu plan yesterday. I hate going to the store without a plan. I’ve lived here since June and I still am trying to figure out the grocery store.

I’ve been wanting to make something new, but I didn’t figure out something new to try this week. I did come up with a few meals that we haven’t had in a while, but I’m going to search for new meals, I need a change. We are having FFY (fend for yourself), baked potato soup and homemade bread/rolls, meatloaf muffins, chicken cordon bleu, and pork tenderloin. Saturday we are going to go out to eat since we are going to see Monster Jam.

The other thing I’m planning to make today is oatmeal raisin cookies. Colby has been asking for these the last few weeks. The last few things I baked have been something peanut butter so oatmeal raisin is a good change. I do have another peanut butter cookie recipe in my head, maybe next week.

Yesterday I spent some time working on a new kit for my Teachers Pay Teacher’s store. I love that I have the time to work on these kits that I can sell at a reasonable price for other teachers. I am almost done with the one I started yesterday and I have a few more ideas brewing for the next ones I’ll make.

I’m glad that I’m feeling more human again. My head is still stuffed, but it’s not slowing me down anymore. Yesterday I felt productive as I got the house cleaned, two blog posts, made dinner and worked on the TPT kit. And, that was after shoveling. Today I am having another productive day. Yep, I feel like me again.

Hope your week is going smoothly.

Do you meal plan before going to the grocery store? Did I list any meals you’d like me to post about for next week’s Tasty Tuesday? Is it snowing in your neck of the world?
