Hope everyone had a great Easter. We had a nice time hosting our traditional Easter brunch and visiting with family. It was a bit rough getting back into the Monday routine this morning though.
Jumping straight into the categories this morning.
Well, it rained pretty much all night Saturday making our yard a muddy mess for brunch yesterday. The year before was snow. I think I’m due dry, sunny, and warm weather for next Easter (which, by the way, is on April 1st, no fooling!). Onto the weather we’re expecting this week: great Spring day today, sunny & 70s, tomorrow, warmer and a slight chance of rain, warm and dry until the weekend when it cools off and is supposed to rain again.
On My Reading Pile
Pretty much the same books as the last few weeks. I need to renew or return my pile of books about digital photography as I think they are all due back tomorrow. Maybe I’ll take a little reading break today while I’m cleaning up from Easter brunch yesterday.
Movies or Television Shows I Watched This Weekend
My husband and I watched the movie, Sully, about the airline pilot who landed the plane on the Hudson river. We both thought the movie was very well done and not too long (rather refreshing). We also finished up season 4 of The Americans. Now, it’s sit around and wait for season 5 to come to Amazon.
On My TV
I’m not sure. I think I’ll try to do more reading this week although I watched a couple of episodes of Fringe yesterday after brunch and might re-watch the episodes I own (impatience made me buy some when it was on Netflix and they hadn’t added season 4 or 5 yet) of it. If my husband watches The Voice, I’ll probably watch some of that with him.
Another hard to plan menu week around here. It’s school testing week so I feel compelled to at least try to put decent dinners on the table. It’s also the week after Easter brunch so I have very little motivation to be in the kitchen. Oh, and absolutely no desire to set foot in a grocery store! A complicated combination.
MONDAY: Chicken Legs, Potatoes, Salad, Fruit left-over from brunch (this also goes in the boys’ lunches all week)
TUESDAY: I’m going to play Bunco and leaving my husband in charge so probably brisket leftover from brunch, probably fried potatoes, and maybe fruit (doubtful)
THURSDAY: Spicy lemon chicken (this is an old crock pot recipe that I have to find), vegetable rotini (probably all J will eat)
FRIDAY: Leftovers, grilled cheese sandwiches, OUT, I have no idea
- Finish cleaning up from Easter brunch yesterday (I think I just have one round of dishes left to go in dishwasher and some to wash by hand)
- Take inventory of kids’ summer clothes, both boys seem to need shorts
- Work Tuesday
- Spend a bit more time blogging and visiting other blogs (I missed getting around to visit a lot of you last week)
- Clean the house (always)
- Maybe work Friday
- Check on library books/renew or return them
- Buy more cold medicine (G had an awful cold all last week)
Hoping to do a little landscaping in the front yard. My sister gave me a butterfly bush yesterday and I need to figure out where I want to plant it.
Looking Around The House
We should have cleaned better before Easter brunch but it doesn’t look awful.

What I’m Wearing Today
White tee-shirt with elementary school logo, black Capri pants, and tennis shoes.
Being able to relax a bit in an empty and quiet house on a Monday morning after a busy weekend.
