Wrapping Up the Weekend and Preparing for the Week Ahead

I can't believe I spent almost an entire weekend working. . . err, crafting. . .I mean, creating. Whatever. It was a fairly chilly weekend and we didn't feel like any big adventures this weekend, so we stayed indoors and both worked. Pat's learning some program or something, and I holed up in the craft room and played with glitter, glue, paint, paper, beads, and whatever else I could get my hands on. These items are on my desk to greet me when/if I make it in there today.

We did make a trip out to the bookstore while my car was getting new, much needed front wheels. I picked up this little number there since I can't seem to buy it on iBooks.
As usual, I'm looking for other book suggestions, since I know it won't take me long to work my way through this three-book series. It has also been recommended that I read the Percy Jackson series. Of course, that's another Young Adult Fiction series. If you've got any adult book recommendations, I'd really love to hear about them. I need something that flexes my mind a bit more.


A few items got placed ON SALE over the weekend also.

Button Dangles Bracelet
Blooming Dictionary Necklace

Since it is Mean Plan Monday, let me get to the yummy portion of the post. First, check out these pictures of some of the food we enjoyed over here this past week.
I'm pretty dang proud of how that chicken came out. Check out last week's meal plan post for the recipe. As far as the rest of the menu, Pat enjoyed the muffins, though I didn't ever work up to wanting any. I guess I'll have to make them again. On the other hand, I still haven't made the mushroom soup or calzones. Those will have to come off the menu for a bit. I'm not going to be as ambitious with the meal plan this week.
Remember to check out the other Meal Plan Monday posts over at I'm an Organizing Junkie.
