Weekly Happenings On The Homefront

Hello friends, how was your week last week? I had a busy one but lots of different and fun things going on.

Last Monday, I started the day making sour dough bread. I had a couple of requests for it the last time I posted it on Facebook. Today was the second stage of the bread making, stirring the ingredients and forming it into a ball to let it rise. I baked it after I got home. I also grabbed takeout for dinner on the way home because I didn’t get home until about 6:00. I hate to start cooking that late. We go to bed really early. I Worked on a blog post and some of my tassel earrings and went to bed.

Frozen fog on the way into work on Monday morning. So eerie.
Some of my tassel earrings I have been working on. I will have a selection to sell very soon with lots of different colors.

Tuesday fairly uneventful I had done some grocery shopping for my mother in law over the weekend so I delivered those things to the Assisted Living Center. Work and home.

On Wednesday I had an early morning dental appointment. I had also promised my co-workers that I would make some of the cinnamon roll casserole that has been going around Facebook and TikTok. I wanted to make it on a day I was working so it wouldn’t be left at home. It is ahhhhhmazing!!!! I put it in my crock pot at 5:15 and it takes 2.5 hours to bake. You should try it.

This is a picture of the casserole just before it starts baking. Sadly I forgot to take a picture of it after it baked but it looked pretty much the same.

I had lunch with the sisters and then, in my never ending quest to rid myself of clutter, I made my weekly delivery to Goodwill. I left work a little early and ran home to feed and walk the babies because Hubs had a late night and I had to go back to work for a little bit, for a team meeting. Got home late, then it was Bedtime. Whew!!! a long day.

Thursday morning I was awakened to rain and thunderstorms. You know the kind of day it is nice to just stay on the couch. But work beckoned and off I went. I did get to have lunch with a sweet friend that I don’t get to see a lot. We used to work together many many years ago. He moved on to other jobs and other states but has landed back in this area and we try to get together every few weeks.

Friday I had to head into Knoxville early for routine blood work for my upcoming physical. Work, home, WEEKEND!!!

On Saturday I delivered a Butterfinger cake to my sister for Valentines Day and played with her new kitten. Did the grocery thing and home.

Sunday I made pancakes for breakfast and then put baby back ribs in the crockpot to cook for most of the day. I also made Hubs a coconut cream pie for Valentines. Wow I have baked a lot this past week!!!!!

We really don’t go all out for Valentine’s Day. I put out a few decorations last week. We don’t really do gifts or anything. I usually get flowers. My husband always likes to think of different things or things that are unusual. When I opened the box he got for me I knew it wasn’t flowers or so I thought. But it was. It was a real rose dipped in 24k gold. It’s beautiful and I love it.

I love my rose but I don’t love the stand it is on. I will have to search for something a little more authentic.

I worked on a new knitting stitch I saw on YouTube and had a nice day of just hanging around the house.

Before I knew it the weekend was over. It was this morning and time to head back to work. Why do days off go by soooo fast? How was your week? What are you planning for this week? Some fun I hope.

Always remember

Love your day your way!!
