Currently reading::::


It was time in my reading rotation to read a historical novel so I picked this one off my shelf to read next.  I haven't started it yet, so I'll have to let you know what I think later on.

On the TV::::
My cousin's little boy stayed with us on Friday night and we had to watch "Descendants" AGAIN!  He wants to watch it every time he's here.  Even though it has been on the TV many times, I found myself seeing parts that I hadn't seen before.  I guess I hadn't really sat down and watched the whole thing before.
I have 2 episodes of Poldark to catch up on and also an episode of "Timeless".

I'm so behind on all my other shows, that I just might give up on them!
On the menu this week::::

Monday - Spaghetti, garlic bread, green beans, grapes
Tuesday - Baked chicken breast, cheesy potatoes, corn, apples
Wednesday - Pork chops, mashed potatoes, peas, pears
Thursday - Dan's Day (My brother will bring something home, so no cooking!)
Friday - Pizza
Saturday - Pancake Breakfast at Church
Sunday - Dinner at Church

What I am creating at the moment:::: 
Part 5 of the Demelza CAL, came out last Thursday.  This part is for the panels that go alongside the middle square.  I need to make four of these.  One down; 3 to go!
  BTW, this CAL is going on in the Pippin Crochet Club group on facebook.  Come join us!
