|Christmas themed Scentsy Burner I found at Goodwill for $5.99
~Saturday we went to a Rummage Sale put on by a local Boy Scout Troop and I was able to find lots of great things there. I found dvds, clothing, a cosmetic pouch and a felted wool tote bag. Here is a link to that post if you have not already seen it http://debbie-thenextchapterinmylife.blogspot.com/2017/11/all-this-for-8-rummage-sale-scores.html
~I found another Scentsy Wax burner in a Christmas theme at Goodwill for $5.99
~At another thrift store I found a pair of swim trunks for the little boys and a brand new Christmas themed fuzzy throw blanket.
~We brought the little boys home with us on Saturday to watch a movie and hot tub. It was so much fun! Sadly I did not get pictures because we were just enjoying being together.
~Sunday Jeff and I were in "Slug Mode" so we stayed home, watched some shows on TV, napped and had leftovers for dinner.
~Monday I froze a some of the leftover Zuppa Toscana and some rice for future meals.
|Venison and macaroni casserole with cheese on top.
~I trimmed my bangs and feel human again. 😉
~Jeff took my car in to have the transmission flushed and new fluid put in it. It apparently was way beyond needing it to be done.
~Jeff stopped on his way home from our mechanic and picked up some things at the grocery store for me. Since we got snow and the roads are a bit slick, I did not want to be out driving on them so I stayed home.
~With the cold weather I have found myself sitting closer to our pellet stove seeking it's warmth and listening to different Hawaiian music playlists on Youtube. I even got up and danced some hula to some of the songs that I know the hula dances to for exercise and because I love them so! Yes, I took hula lessons as a young child and again as a teenager.
~I've been working my points programs.
~Our shower stall in the master bedroom bathroom decided to come apart so Jeff got in there and fixed and chalked it again. We are taking our showers in the guest bathroom for a few days while the chalk cures.
|Movies borrowed from the library.
~I planned our menu for this week around what needed to be used up in our freezer after I spent some time rearranging it to make sure that the oldest things were moved to the front of the upright freezer and the newer things we placed behind them.
~I ordered a free 2018 Calendar from Joyce Meyer's Ministry http://specialoffer.joycemeyer.org/2018-calendar/
~Thank goodness for leftovers! I had a major fibro flare on Tuesday and just walking took a huge effort.
~We used the hot tub on Tuesday evening to help ease my aching and stiff muscles. I do think it helped a bit.
|Scrapple and fried apples for dinner.
~Wednesday I made Scrapple and fried apples for dinner. There were some apples that we starting to go a bit soft so I needed a way to use some of them. We had leftover Scrapple so that will be there for another easy meal.
~Jeff borrowed our son Chris' truck so he could bring home a ton of wood pellets on Thursday morning.
~I sent home several bags of chicken fried steak with Chris...he loves them!
~The library had 3 movies in for me.
~I watched some videos on Youtube and learned how to make homemade chicken bullion from scratch.
~My sweet hubby picked up 2 10 pound bags of potatoes for me at .97 each from Safeway when he was in town on Thursday night for his bowling league.
~I'm back to using our thermal carafe to put the freshly brewed coffee in to keep it hot since I am now having a second cup later in the morning.
|Pizza and a salad made for a quick and easy dinner on Friday.
~I got all my fuzzy slippers and cozy robes out and washed so that they are ready for me to use each day. If I am having a flare/crash or it's just a rainy and cold day and I'm not going anywhere, I tend to just stay in jammies all day long. It is just more comfortable for me and does not hurt as much as other clothing can be on me.
~Friday night's dinner was a frozen pizza that I got for $1.99 and popped in the oven along with a salad. Cheap and good!
~On the nights that I have not been able to sleep, I find myself listening to praise and worship music. YouTube has some good playlists. One of my favorites in one by Hillsongs.
|I love listening to praise music and find lots of playlists on YouTube.
I'm praying that this weekend and coming week will be a better one health wise and my pain levels will go back down to the 5-6 range on the pain scale. That I can handle and is my "normal". Jeff has a long weekend and is off Monday so we are hoping to be able to do a few fun things this weekend and/or Monday if I feel up to it. I'm thinking maybe going to see a movie. I can sit, relax and enjoy! Be blessed and have a great weekend!
