Will be a humid 42 degrees Celsius today. Yuck!

Right Now I Am…

Sitting here in front of the fan, listening to my son talk about Fortnite.

Things That Make Me Happy…

Playing board games with my son. Last night for New Year’s Eve, I gifted him the new Monopoly version – Fortnite, and we played several rounds.

As I Look Out My Window…

The sun is high in the sky, everything is dry and still.

On My Reading Pile…

I bought us all Kindles for Christmas, so I have dozens of books on there, I also won a book pack, and was gifted some books as well, so my reading pile is looking pretty healthy at the moment. I have just finished re-reading Janette Oke’s “When Calls The Heart” series, and am about to start re-reading her “Love Comes Softly” series.

On My TV…

This week I am hoping to watch more “When Calls The Heart” episodes, as well as the season final of “God Friended Me”, and some “Chicago Fire”.

On The Menu This Week…

This fortnight I was lucky enough to find packs of 24 sausages reduced to $1.24, so I bought eight packets of those. We still have some of the chickens left, as well some packs of mince that were $3.24, so we are well and truly set with meat for a while now.

Monday: Toad in the Hole with steamed vegetables.

Tuesday: Shepherd’s pie with steamed vegetables.

Wednesday: Whole roast chicken with vegetables.

Thursday: Grilled sausages with vegetables.

Friday: Meatloaf with steamed vegetables.

Saturday: Steamed vegetables with a cheese sauce.

Sunday: Spaghetti bolognaise.

On My To Do List…

Write some penpal letters.

Apply for university scholarships.

New Recipe I Want To Try Soon…

My son would love me to make him a sweet potato pie, I just need to find a recipe, as it is not very common in Australia.

In The Craft Basket…

A trio of fabrics to cut for a quilt I want to make my son.

Lots of pieces of fabric to stitch together to make crazy quilt blocks.

Bunting to finish for my kitchen window.

Looking Around My House…

It is clean and tidy, Christmas is packed away for another year, and school supplies are out, ready to be used.

From My Camera…

Christmas

My Simple Pleasure…

Relaxing with my son.

    I got stuck somewhere on “several rounds” of Monopoly, LOL. That’s a one and done game for us. Very kind of you to give your son a gift for New Year’s Eve. Your dog looks quite content there. Hope you had a wonderful start to the New Year & a terrific first week of 2019!
