Our big planning month is winding down. I have a couple more planning/organizing prompts for you this week, and the rest are just some prompts toward relaxation and self care. On Friday I’m sharing a hot milk recipe that is an alternative to hot chocolate. You probably have all the ingredients on hand already – it’s that simple. But if you like mini marshmallows in hot chocolate then you’ll probably also like mini marshmallows in this new recipe as well, so make sure to put those on your grocery list this week.

At my house we are still enjoying Christmas movies. We just watched Noelle on Disney Plus, and both kids and adults laughed out loud. I enjoyed it so much that I’ve put it on several times now as background noise. I got a kick out of the fact that Shirley MacLaine has a starring role, since I just recently watched her in The Trouble With Harry, one of my fall movie recommendations. Anyway, I feel like Noelle is destined to be a classic, it’s that good.

We still haven’t gotten snow where I live, but we are hunkering down and enjoying wintering anyway. I hope you are doing the same.
