Well, hello Monday again!
Somehow Mondays sneak up on me
and I'm never quite ready to
give up the weekend, are you?
It's been extremely chilly lately --
where are our normal halfway warm February temps?

Maddy and I spent the weekend running errands,
shopping at Target,
walking the pup,
and throwing out clutter.
Plus -- I cooked!
Yes, I made an incredibly delish
slow cooker bbq chicken!
While the bbq chicken is probably easy-peasy for
most of you, I'm the first to admit
that cooking is not my strong suit -
I need easy, very easy,
and it was that and very yummy!
Speaking of cooking,
last weekend when I was with the littles,
I introduced them to the Pioneer Woman shows
on Netflix. Janie and I oohed and aaahed
over the dishes she made.
How does Ree make it look so easy?
Aha, Janie reportedly was taking notes!
The other day she made herself a little snack -
some chocolate hearts layered on tostitos!
She told her Dad she learned about it on Pioneer Woman!
Smart girl -- always pay attention when chocolate is involved
(though I do not recall that specific recipe).
This week we are hoping for warmer temps,
looking forward to celebrating a birthday
and a day and half off school for Mads due
to school conferences.
Love a day off, don't you!
