Plan-Ahead Sunday

Oh my but it's been a week!  It's a cold, blustery Sunday here in the Detroit area and I seem to be coming down with something unsavory!  Body aches, sore throat, etc.  Could be worse!

Tonight I am going to make some chicken enchildadas.  Thanks to you, Pinterest

The original recipe comes from the Women Living Well blog, which I also love. 

I have most of the ingredients and what I don't have, I will simply improvise, LOL.  That's the name of the game here in my kitchen!  (I will post my entire menu plan in another post later today)

I have a ton of paperwork to get through today for work as well - mostly just organizing into 'like' piles!  It's going to be a busy week ahead and anything I can do to make things easier I'll appreciate later in the week.

I'm going to be lesson planning today as well.  Emily started French last week and she learned the alphabet, numbers 1-10, and 10 family words.  Thankfully her memory is better than mine!  We're taking two weeks to do an in-depth study of Ben Franklin (tomorrow starts our 2nd week) as well.  Last week was mostly basics and this week we will do a lap book, watch some videos, do a web-quest and who knows what else I will think of!  I will be posting our entire unit study with links on my homeschool blog later this week!

In "fashion" this week (hahahaha i jest!)  there was nothing notable!  I tried a new patterned manicure which was an epic fail.  This week I plan on doing a manicure I saw (where else?) Pinterest!  I think I have the polishes to get the desired effect:

I also have been searching for a dress to wear to my Goddaughter's wedding in June, in New Hampshire.  I'm going to keep searching and will share a few of my favorites next week.

I am trying to follow the 52 Books in 52 weeks challenge this year.  I will only have 3 books under my belt for January; however, 2 out of the 3 were almost 900 pages long!  So I will forgive myself and move on :)   I will be doing book reviews separately, so won't post them here.  I will say that two of the books are from Diane Gabaldon's Outlander series and they are!!!   I read probably about 80% Christian books (or have for the past several  years) so this one has much more language, violence, and sex than the books I am accustomed to reading - but the story and the characters!  Oh my!  I plan to read the entire series!!

I finally finished the 7-week Bible study of James using Beth Moore's James: Mercy Triumphs

This is the first time I have used a Beth Moore study and I have to say, it was so incredible!  I want to do the Jesus: 90 Days with the One and Only study next!  I hope to start this next month so it will coincide with Easter.

I guess that will about do it for today.  I need to get going on cleaning, menu-planning, lesson-making, paper-sorting, etc! 

Have a blessed day,
