Monday Marvels

It's Monday morning, and well I am once again dreaming of all those items I would purchase should I ever experience that state in my life called economic bounty. Recently, it doesn't feel like it is going to happen, but what's going on is only temporary. So here are the things I would be today if I had an unlimited supply of cash.

Yeah, it's geek chic. What geek girl doesn't need an alpacacorn sweatshirt?

Just because I've had a few moments in the past couple of weeks when disgust is all I felt. A Disgust figure from the movie Inside Out would be really appropriate.

 I would love to have this collection of Geo Herriman's classic comic strips from 1934. 

And who doesn't need a pink leopard print dress?
And of course a pair of cute little earrings. You know something springy.

So would any of these make it to your shopping lists?

Cream of Broccoli Soup

I've said it before, and I'm saying it again. Winter is the perfect season for soups. They warm us up and they are often full of those extra vitamins that we all need in our lives. So I had some extra broccoli on hand this week and this is the recipe I came up with. It's pretty easy, and it tastes great!

Here's What You Need

1 lb chopped broccoli
1 quart chicken broth
1/2 lb fresh spinach leaves
1 Tablespoon peanut butter
1 Tablespoon sea salt
Sprouts for a garnish

Here's What You Do

Bring your broth to a boil. Add your broccoli and boil for 10 minutes. Then add your peanut butter, spinach and salt. Cook long enough to wilt your spinach. Now add this to a blender and blend until it's smooth. Put it in a bowl and toss on some sprouts. 

Need another great soup recipe for the winter?

February 2016 Goals

Every month I put together these goals. And it has helped me to get some things accomplished. But I never can understand why the few two weeks of each month I am really excited about the goals. And then something happens. I just can't always get through all of the goals I have set for myself. So how did I do with my January goals?

So how did I do on my January goals?

My first goal was to complete a major house repair. Well, I tried to do this. I called the plumber and he came to the house and provided me with some kind of bad news. I need more money than I had to complete the repairs. Like a thousand dollars more than I had. So do I get credit for calling and scheduling the appointment and receiving the bad news? I think I do. I just have to do a little more work so I can get the repairs completed.

The second goal was to return emails promptly. Well I did well with it for like a week. Why do I do that? I can do something for a week, and then well I just loose interest.

Third goal get that project running. Life took over and I didn't get it completed, but I did make a little progress. Better something than nothing.

And the last one was to focus in on the details. I did figure out a way to get myself to focus in more. If you read What Was That Detail, you know that I decided to write out a task that I need to complete each day on my bathroom mirror. It has worked most days. There have been a couple of days when I just ignored things, but overall, I am doing more of the small little things I need to complete.

So what goals do I want to complete in February?

Save Money

I have to save money for that repair. So this month I will set aside at least $40.00 a week for that repair. I really want the kitchen sink repaired properly. It will happen!

Sell Some Junk

Yes, I need some extra cash. So it is time to get some of those extra things listed on Ebay. Let the selling begin.

Clean Up the Basement

There is a bunch of wood in my basement from one project that involved pulling out some shelves in the basement. It needed to be done, but the wood never really got out to the trash. I'm gonna work on that this month.


I started using tags on some of my posts. I want to go back and tag more of my older posts. It does help with organizing my blog. I want it to happen.

So what do you want to accomplish this month?

Winter View

Winter can be a time of dreariness. A time when we are just waiting for things to come back to life. But even in the dead times we can find things that have simple beauty.
