  1. Yesterday was all football on my TV. I did a lot of reading while watching too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  2. I have a long to-do list for this week too. There are lots of appointments to make and I fear that our house needs a little more than laundry!

    Have a great week!

  3. I've never planned dinners in my life and am amazed at the method that goes into this!

  4. Hi colletta, Happy Birthday to your momma! The book your reading looks interesting. We are also having Ribs this week, and I was considering Breakfast for Dinner too. We did that last month and my kiddos loved it. btw I would love to see what 2017 planner you got? have a great week.

  5. A very happy birthday to your mom :)
    I'm working on the Sophie's Universe but the Demelza is actually my next project :)
    Hope you have a great week.

  6. Your mom's birthday dinner sounds good! I am glad to see the Christmas movies starting to pop up on Netflix again. Hope you have a great week!
