Here comes another week! Of course, I’m still wondering what happened to last week?
Now, I remember. I worked every single day. Today I’m not scheduled but also not going to go in if asked as I need a catch up day. Especially since starting next week, I’ll work every day the rest of July. Lots to do today.
Better get to planning this week. Joining in with Sandra from Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom. Go check out the Happy Homemaker Link Up for a wonderfully encouraging way to start off the week.
Here’s the sky from about 30 minutes ago while I was out watering my flowers:
Going to be a hot and humid week. Highs in the low 90’s for it. Maybe heat advisories. They were talking about them last week but I didn’t really watch enough weather this morning to know if it’s changed.
How I’m Feeling This Morning
Tired (didn’t sleep great) but still ready to knock (hopefully) quite a few items off a much too long to-do list.
On My Mind
Just the thought that I wish we could have a kindness pandemic. Just think what the world would look like if kindness spread like the Corona virus. And (forgive the soap box moment) could someone please tell me where in the history of humankind, a mind or behavior changed by being belittled, judged, or called names? Ugh. Not speaking from personal experience but rather tired of all the judgement and negativity I keep running across on different sites. *Stepping off soap box now*
On My To Do List
- Clean and organize top of desk
- Find tax stuff for husband
- Get driver license stuff together for G
- Finish laundry
- Pick up more shorts as Bass Pro (?)
- Clean out and re-arrange fridge (husband moved things to make room to brine chickens yesterday)
- Go to bank
- Probably a Target run for cleaning supplies (if I can find any)
- Whole house clean up
- Wash car (inside and out)
- Clean out purse
- Mow front yard (pushing that one to the weekend)
- Still need to make a phone call
- Write out graduation cards (find cards I bought pre-pandemic) and mail letters
On My Breakfast Plate
Back to trying the carb cycle thing this week so I had a protein shake instead of my usual yogurt.
On My Reading Pile
My reading took a hit last week. I really need to finish The Little Village of New Starts by Donna Ashcroft. I’m close. In other exciting reading news, I discovered the library opened back up for inter-library loans. Hooray! Our local branch doesn’t always have the best collection and now I can get some books I’ve wanted to read that are at the main KC branch.
Not too much here either. We did watch the movie, Monuments Men on Friday night. Really interesting and based on a true story. A few episodes of Fear The Walking Dead yesterday (laundry folding show).
On The Menu This Week
MONDAY: Maybe taco salads (taco meat in freezer or chicken from yesterday) *J has a baritone lesson at 6:30*
TUESDAY: Fish, baked sweet potatoes, chopped Asian salad *I work 8:30-4:30*
WEDNESDAY: BBQ chicken (from freezer), rice, salad *I work 8:30-1:30* *We have a family birthday celebration*
THURSDAY: Spaghetti, salad, bread sticks
FRIDAY: French toast, sausage or bacon, fruit (might move this one to a different day)
From The Camera
The neighbor’s mighty oak tree near sunset last night
A new bloom
And the summer garden flag
Looking Around The House
I see several projects waiting. Also, need to clean but it’s not disaster level at least.
On My Prayer List
Family, friends, strangers. For a more compassionate and kind world. And of course, an end to this virus.
Quote For The Week
Not sure if this is a quote or just a saying but I saw it on a tee-shirt. And thought it was great. My new motto for the rest of the year!
Gratitude, Grace, and Grit.
Isn’t that something we all need right about now?
What are your plans for the week ahead?
