Did you all remember?   This is the day I dislike most of all the year.  Changing the time made sense in the past, but not now.  Just leave it one time or the other.  

So here's what's been going on this week (besides Valentine's Day).

On Monday I went to Target.  I needed ink for my printer and also wanted to get some washi tape for my planner.  I'll be showing that to you soon.  You know how I love the dollar spot at Target but would you believe there wasn't one thing there that I bought.  I liked some of the things, but not enough to buy them.

Tuesday was the first Ladies Bible Study of the year.  We did an introduction to the book of Colossians and I told them all I could find out about the city of Colosse.  I always say there is nothing new under the sun.  Those people of ancient times could be us.  It's so interesting to see that although they lived differently, they still were more like us than we often imagine.

I had bought a rotisserie chicken last Saturday.  After having it then, on Monday I made chicken salad with the left overs and had sandwiches for dinner.  On Tuesday I took the carcass and made chicken stock.  With that I made chicken rice soup.  It was so good.  So I got three meals out of a $4.99 chicken.
Yummy chicken rice soup

On Wednesday I took Joe back to the hospital to get the last of his x-rays done.  In the waiting room I saw this HUGE poinsettia.  It was beautiful.  Joe thought it might be fake, but I looked and it was real.  I had to get a photo to show you.

Also this week when I went grocery shopping I got a shamrock.  It's tiny, but I'm hoping I can keep it and it will get bigger.  It was only $1 so how could I go wrong?  So cute!

And that's what's been going on.  Hope you have had a good week.  This coming week we are predicted to have a major snow storm on Tuesday.  That's the day Joe has a doctor's appointment at the hospital to see about his broken fingers.  *sigh*  I'm praying I can get us there and back safely.  He is still in a lot of pain so he has to go.

Have a good Sunday, everyone!

  1. We bought a rotisserie chicken and used it for a salad with chunks of chicken, and sliced chicken with crackers and cheese and finally a Mexican Chicken Soup!
    Makes you feel good to stretch one meat into 3 or 4 meals!!!

  2. That certainly is a huge plant! I did a double take just at the photo. The weather forecast doesn't sound good,does it? The term Nor'easter carries images of rather nasty weather. Will pray for your travel.

  3. We decided to go to second church service today. Time change is annoying and I have to be up early three days this week and so I wanted more sleep. Two days to cover a coworker's early shift since she's on vacation. Yes leave time alone! We're havinv nice weather again today. 60 degrees at 3 p.m. Hope the bad weather doesn't get you again. Have a blessed week my friend!

  4. We love those rotisserie chickens! Praying for good news and good healing for hubby!

  5. One chicken is one meal in this house....but then there are 8 of us :)
    The weather....we really don't need a big snow but looks like we are getting it. So sorry you will have to be out in it.... But understand the urgency!
    I don't mind the time change....really do love the lighter evenings!
    God bless your day!

  6. I thought the same thing when I was at Target the other day, that never ever happens. Probably for the better as I do not need one more thing....LOL. Gotta love a rotesserie chicken. Usually on the last day I make wraps with ranch dressing. Sooooo good!!!

  7. Your Valentine Dinner looked really good. I never knew anyone who cooked lamb chops. They must be delicious. Your rotisserie chicken meals looked good too. Hope that Joe gets to the doctor tomorrow so he can get some relief from the pain. Be safe out there!
