Well here I am. I'm not gonna tell a story: this was a tough cold and it took a hard toll on me. This woman, who enjoys working hard and is usually hard at work doing something, sat in her chair and did as little as possible for the bulk of a full week, yet. It was all I could do just to be sick and I mean that. Along about Friday I started to feel myself once more. Whew! It was a brief reprieve with Saturday finding me miserably backslidden. Never mind all that. This morning I was up early and the first thing I did was declare war on germs. I've had enough! I opened the windows and aired the house for over an hour. I wiped and sprayed disinfectant on every surface we'd touched over the past month. Enough, I say, enough!
Meal plans went kaplooey last week. I don't think I made more than one of the meals on my plan. That's the way it goes some weeks, you know. So I just used what I had on hand as we wanted to use it and didn't worry about whether it was on the plan, didn't plan to use a thing we didn't already have. Meals were simple overall and most all included as much extra Vitamin C as I could include. We had enough leftovers to serve us weekend meals. Since these were not planned meals for last week I'll include those menus here this week.
Breakfast: Ham and Cheese Strata, Apple Slices
Chili Mac, Green Salad, Pineapple Cobbler
Kielbasa with Potatoes Au Gratin, Brussels Sprouts, Sliced Tomatoes
Garlic Herb Roasted Chicken, Maple roasted Butter Nut Squash, Steamed Green Beans, Pineapple Cobbler
Beef Stew, Crisp Green Salad, Corn Muffins, Baked Stuffed Apples
On My Own
Chicken Pot Pie with Sweet Potato Crust, Green Beans, Waldorf Salad
Jobs This Week
There are a million jobs I'd like to tackle and projects I want to start or finish. I'm gonna be cautious though. I gave the house a decent smartening up this morning. I'm not planning to work myself backwards as I did on Friday. I'm going to do what must be done and if I feel up to anything extra I'll slowly work away at the extras.
Bills, Groceries, Errands
