Today is our last official day of spring break and we woke up to more rain! When I say we, I actually mean my husband and myself. The boys are still sleeping. So much for a “let’s get up at the normal time and readjust to the school schedule” idea.
I think I’ll just go ahead and move right into my Happy Homemaker Monday post. Be sure to check out our host Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom for lots of great stuff!
Rain, rain, and more rain to start our week. I think it is supposed to clear away by Thursday or Friday. At least it’s not super cold, it’s in the upper 50s most the week and the rain is the steady down pour kind we do need for this time of year.
On My Reading Pile
I finished reading The Seventh Plague by James Rollins last week. Definitely plan on looking for my of his books. Currently, I’m working my way through Forty Ways To Look At JFK by Gretchen Rubin as well as a stack of “how to” books on digital photography.
Movies Or Television Shows I Watched This Weekend
Last night I stayed up way too late watching the rest of a movie my husband had pulled up on Netflix before promptly falling asleep. It was called DeJa Vu On Friday, I had the wild idea to just watch the beginning and end of each season of The X-Files before Netflix removed the series. I almost made it before I had to skip ahead to the very last episode.
Finally, I watched a bit of The Final Four basketball games. I used to always watch these games with my dad so I knew without a doubt which teams he would have been cheering on to win. It’s definitely going to be, “Go, Zags!” around here tonight (Well, I’ll be saying it. Sadly, the rest of my family is not interested in watching.)
On My TV
I really don’t know. The Flash is on hiatus until sometime in April so there’s not really anything pressing I want to see plus I’m back to a busy work schedule this week (could have worked today but opted to say no).
We ate so poorly over this spring break! I really have to do better with this and get us back to a better balance of real food versus crap that comes from a box or eating out.
I’m going to link up my menu with Laura from I’m An Organizing Junkie and her Menu Plan Mondays. There are always great ideas to be found over there!
MONDAY: Grilled chicken legs,
TUESDAY: Ham Steaks, Cinnamon, Butter, & Brown Sugar Carrots
WEDNESDAY: Chili (carryover from last week…probably the last time I’ll put it on the menu for a while)
THURSDAY: Chicken enchiladas (for G & myself not sure what my husband & J will eat yet…maybe mini tacos and yellow rice)
To Do List
- Go to the grocery store
- Still need to go to The Dollar Tree
- Pay rest of the bills I found under a magazine on the table
- Clearly, clean up the house a bit better
- Still need to sign J up for summer school, I keep putting this off.
- Plan my menu for Easter Brunch
Trying to teach myself to create better photos. Wish my eyes didn’t glaze over every time I tried to read the “how-to” books. Might have to try taking notes on them or something.
Happening This Week
- Kansas City Royals home opener is today which is why all my headings are blue! Hopefully, they don’t get rained out and no, we aren’t going although I wish we were.
- I work Tuesday through Thursday (so far). Also, I need to confirm whether they want me to plan on full days again or to stick with the half-days.
- The boys go back to school. Tomorrow is going to be painful for all of us, I think.
- J may or may not have coding club after school on Wednesday. He doesn’t know.
- Mom’s Night Out for me. Looking forward to catching up with everyone!
Looking Around The House
The bathrooms and floors need most the attention. Oh, and as usual, I need to clean off the kitchen table.
From The Camera
We managed to get the kids out of the house for just a bit on Saturday. We went to the Prairie Fire Museum over in Kansas. I wish my husband would have consulted me a bit before just buying the tickets as we paid for parts clearly suited for much younger children.
The building was beautiful though. I had to wait for a wedding party to finish their photos with the building as a backdrop before I could get out there and snap a few pictures. I imagine this would look twice as stunning on a sunny day. From another angle:
What I’m Wearing Today
Pajamas! I still need to hop in the shower and get ready for the day. Wanted to get this post finished first though.
Discovering new places and new things. Something I don’t do nearly enough.
Quote For The Week
There was a small wetlands area behind the museum. I would have loved to have checked it out more except my family was getting rather impatient. However, I stumbled on this sign and loved the quote on it: ************
What’s on your agenda for the week?
