Fall arrives officially on Friday! I’d be a bit more excited if I weren’t so tired.
It’s yet another week of working a full-time schedule around here. Next week is more of the same. Then, I may sleep for an entire day just because I can!
The computer monitor broke over the weekend so my planning was mostly on bits of paper until tonight. Glad to join in with Sandra’s Happy Homemaker Monday even if I am posting a bit later than usual.
It feels a bit like fall right now and it was a rainy day. However, all the rain is going to add to the humidity and it’s going to be muggy and in the high 80s later in the week. Right now it’s 71 outside and we have the windows open.
Right Now I Am
Working on this post to try to get a handle on what I need to do this week. Trying to figure out what I still need to do for Bunco since I am hosting tomorrow night.
On My Reading Pile
Currently abandoned. Weekend project perhaps?
Movies Or Shows I Watched This Weekend
G introduced me to Parks and Recreation on Netflix. I’m loving it. Just the kind of humor I need after some rather long days. I think my husband and I watched episode 7? of Game of Thrones. It’s slow-going 2 episodes at a time.
My Menu For This Week
This is the part of my post that needs the most work. First our menu for the week:
MONDAY: We ate at Sam’s Club while buying a new computer monitor. *I worked 7:45-4:15*
TUESDAY: hamburgers and hot dogs *G has early morning band practice* *J has an after school robotics club meeting* *I host Bunco* *I also work 7:45-4:15*
WEDNESDAY: Chicken legs, salad *G has early morning band practice* *I work 7:45-4:15*
THURSDAY: No idea, scrounge through the fridge and freezer/leftovers…*I work 7:45-4:15* *G has evening band practice*
FRIDAY: Subway *Football game night tradition* *I work 7:45-4:15*
I thought about making a separate post but I’m just going to throw it on this one instead.
Appetizers: Summer sausage, crackers, hummus, pita crackers
Main Dish: hamburgers and hot dogs (my husband has agreed to cook these for me and we’ll just have the same dinner) with buns and fixings.
Side Dishes: Chips, Pasta Salad, Broccoli Salad (maybe I’m kind of out of steam tonight)
Drinks: Lemonade, Coke
Table Snacks: Cheese/Caramel Popcorn mix, M&M’s, and one more I haven’t decided on yet.
That’s me trying to keep it simple.
Ha. Ha. HA!
- Host Bunco
- Reschedule next week’s hair appointment
- Attempt to hang on to sanity
- Pay bills
- Try practice with camera at some point
What I Am Creating
A September Bunco Menu? See above. Not much else although I want to try to make one of these picture walls if things ever settle down.
Looking Around The House
From The Camera
This is from a few weeks ago. Sadly, didn’t get a chance to do much with the camera last week. First one is from J. On the same day he took the photo of the geese in flight, he also took this photo. The second one is mine of interesting park bench graffiti.
When the recycle bin has more in it than the trash bin.
Quote For The Week
All I can think of at the moment is “just keep swimming” from Finding Nemo.
It’s just been a Monday is all and not a terrible one at that. The week will improve. What do you have planned for the week ahead?
