(TGIS) #Thank God It's Saturday!!!

Thank God this week is over because it has been a challenging week for my family. We have been  sick with cough, cold and fever. In fact, my hubby had to cancel work and stayed home the whole week, he was supposed to go out East to deliver a load with his brother. He had the symptoms of a flu but, we weren't sure if he really got it. He had to used his vacation time to afford not going to work. He has 3 weeks paid vacation and 3 days paid personal time from work. My kids and I got either a cold or fever but we didn't go and see a doctor, we just all rested, ate well and slept good. Although it wasn't how we wanted to spend my hubby's vacation time, we're still thankful that we got to spend time with him. He is seldom home due to his kind of work and we support and understand him. He is a type of man, husband and dad who is a good provider and cares about his family much. 

Everybody is feeling better today and hubby made this delicious french toast partnered with fried sausage for breakfast. I was planning to make egg omelette with tomato and onion but I got busy with the baby, so all we had was these and of course a cup of coffee for me and hubby and fruit juice for my kids. Hubby blessed the food with a prayer and we all devoured it.



After two days of cold snap, the weather has gotten better. Our driveway looks like a skating ring, the snow is melting due to the weather is getting a bit warmer. It's dangerous to walk outside especially if your shoes doesn't have good cleats. I would suggest you wear  football shoes, joke!!























See the pavement covered with ice? I will never set foot there If I don't want body pain. I am glad we don't need to go anywhere today, we got our shopping done yesterday and no commitments or activities outside home.























Sipping a  hot cup of green tea with honey on it. Honey had been studied for its health benefits and I found out it is good for cough and throat irritation. It also helps you sleep better. Green tea has a lot of health benefits too which include being an antioxidant.I will not discuss all the health benefits as I am not an expert on these matter  I just love to do research and read about health stuffs. I usually drink coffee or tea when I am writing for my blog, I found it helpful in thinking what to write. The caffeine helps my brain to work harder.

  2. I love those plates, I used to have 4 different colors of them. They were antiques. We didn't have enough room to bring the extra boxes when moving from Michigan to Alabama.

    1. Oh that is nice to know you have plates like these. Actually, these are from my MIL and she left it for us to use when she moved up North closer to her sister. I didn't know these are antiques. I am glad to know and I will take good care of these the more lol

  3. I also love to look forward to weekends as it's my way to balance my whole week including the rest part. It's the perfect day for rest with no obligations to brave the weather in your case.

    1. I certainly agree with you, I usually oversleep during weekends as I don't need to wake up early. Kids has no school and I am not babysitting my friend's baby during week end. Can't wait for weekends now ha ha

    1. I used to drink black tea sis but I found out that green tea is better. I drink more coffee though than tea. I can't let the day go by without coffee esp with what I do at home I need extra boost of energy. Are you guys drinking sweetened Iced tea like what we have in Philippines? I am having hard time finding that kind of tea
