Well, the whole family was here for the weekend. And January is only about cuddling by the fire, eating soup, hot chocolate and playing games. So we played games all weekend. I cooked all day on Saturday for the hubby to take food back to Alabama.
Classes really start this week and I am looking forward to being back in the classroom. I love students and feel like my best days are when I am teaching.
This week, I am buckling down and finish the garden planning. Seeds and garden supplies will be ordered this week. It is hard to believe that I need to start working out in the yard next week. January is the only month I take off and boy do I have a great deal of clean up to do.
The one thing I love about January is that it gives me time to complete those pesky little projects that I never seem to have time to finish. So hemming some curtains that have needed it for a year and several pictures that I need framed are going to be taken care of.
Lastly, the Superbowl invites are going out this week and I need to buckle down and pick out a menu. Baking the desserts ahead of time will help to get ready for the party.

1. Order seeds and trays
2. Check heat lamps
3. Purge files and start prepping taxes
4. Check chocolate supplies for making Valentine’s candy

Want to do this week:
