I’m a day late with my post. Yesterday was President’s Day so the boys were off school and I lost my computer early. They are off school again today but still sleeping.
It’s nice they have an extra day to sleep in this week. I’m sure it won’t be quite as nice tomorrow morning when none of us will want that 6a.m. wake up alarm.
Time to join in with Sandra from Diary of a Stay At Home Mom and plan my week. Technically, today is like Monday since yesterday was a federal holiday.
Weird and weirder. We did get a water-glass full of rain thrown on us yesterday. It wasn’t nearly enough. How strange that I ran to the grocery store last night in jeans and short-sleeved shirt, no coat, not even one in the car, in February? It was 61 degrees out there!
The rest of the week is supposed to be more of the same until the weekend when winter will be making a very brief appearance. And while I’m not happy to see it on the day I’m working, I do hope we get the rain they predict to fall on Thursday. A thunderstorm? In February? Weird.
On My Bedside Table
Right now just a pile of clothes I need to sort and put away. I did partially clean it off last week. The cat’s been hanging out there at night as well.
On My Reading Pile
Library books are due today or tomorrow! I need to return a few and renew others. Right now, I’m reading The Martian. I keep thinking they need an audio book which is narrated by Matt Damon. I also have an autobiography of C.S. Lewis sitting untouched. So of course, I opened an e-book on my phone instead. I’m about half-way through The Delphi Effect by Rysa Walker, the one I stayed up much too late reading last night.
On My TV
I watched the entire season of Quantico on Netflix over the weekend. Last week while I was sick, I watched, The Royals as well as Secrets of Great British Castles. Both were really interesting.
Still feel like we’re in a bit of a rut and the weird weather makes it harder to break. Who wants to eat comfort meals cooked in the oven when it’s 70 degrees in February? Not me! I do think I need to return to linking up with Menu Plan Monday hosted by Laura from I’m An Organized Junkie and start pulling in some new dinner ideas.
MONDAY: We had tacos (soft tacos, actually)
TUESDAY: Ham steak, sweet potatoes *G has pep band* *I have Bunco* (we’re having mozzarella sticks and salad for lunch, special request)
WEDNESDAY: Roast in the crock pot *G has pep band*
THURSDAY: Pork chops, regular potatoes *I work 12-5*
FRIDAY: Leftovers or frozen pizza *I work 12-5*
- Figure out how to style my hair. She cut it a bit short for my taste but I haven’t really messed with it since being home. I’m going back in a few short weeks to have her add some curl into it all. Hopefully, that will help.
- Still need to clean
- Still need to go to Target
- Look into planning a short trip (maybe even just a couple of day trips) for spring break
- Make a few appointments
Nothing. Hopefully, I’ll be a bit more inspired this week.
Looking Forward To
Going to Bunco tonight. Spring break for the boys coming soon.
As I Look Around The House
The usual. It needs a bit of cleaning. It’s been better but it’s also been much worse.
From The Camera
Outside of Valentine’s Day, I didn’t do a great job of picking up my camera last week. My Valentine’s Day flowers are still going strong a week later though! I just snapped this photo:
What I’m Wearing Today
I’m currently still in my pajamas. I’ll probably throw on jeans and t-shirt when I start getting ready for the day.
Watching TV, especially a show on Netflix where I can just watch the whole series and be done with it. Of course, I do go through spurts with it and enjoy it a lot more if the weather is lousy.
Quote for the Week
I was researching a different quote by Princess Diana (“Always Do Your Research” Abe Lincoln, ha!) and came across this one which I think is so fitting for the current world:
“The greatest problem in the world today is intolerance. Everyone is so intolerant of each other.” (Princess Diana) (found on brainyquote.com)
And this gem showed up in my Facebook memories as something I shared 5 years ago:
“Don’t let one cloud obliterate the whole sky.” (Anais Nin)
What do you have planned for your week? And can you believe next Tuesday is the last day of February, already?
