Happy Homemaker Monday Except, Of Course, It’s Tuesday

I didn’t mean to miss joining in the Happy Homemaker Monday fun yesterday.  I went with a friend to have a fun adventure at a local botanical gardens yesterday.  Then, as happens, the day (and night) simply got away from me.

Woke up this morning and found myself missing my weekly plan.  As usual, I’ll be linking this post up with all the others over at Sandra’s Happy Homemaker Monday post on Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom.

The Weather This Week

Hot! Hot! Hot! And a chance of being stormy as well.  It was 80 degrees at 9:30a.m. this morning. Honestly, I don’t mind as I’m happy summer is just about officially here.

Right Now I Am

Working on this blog post and wondering when the boys will wake up for the day.  I’m hoping I can get this finished before J starts asking if he can use the computer.

On My Reading Pile

A bunch of books I checked out last Tuesday and then, didn’t touch all week.  A new James Rollins novel, a book containing all of William Shakespeare’s plays (I’ve narrowed it down and decided I’ll try to read Hamlet), a kid’s book about New Mexico, and a book on hold waiting for me at the library.

Movies or Television Shows I Watched This Weekend

I mainly just binge-watched the latest season of Arrow on Netflix.  I think it is season 5.  If you thought season 4 was awful (popular opinion mine included), this season is much better!

On My TV

I planned on watching Still Star Crossed last night but the NBA finals were airing instead.  The only thing other than that I’ve been watching are snippets of all the summer game shows.


Could somebody please pass me a menu?  I’d love to place an order!  Ha!  Anyone else struggle to menu plan in the summer and when it’s super hot outside?  This whole menu plan is subject to massive change…

MONDAY:  My husband cooked sausage, biscuits, and pancakes

TUESDAY:  Taco Salads

WEDNESDAY: Thinking of trying this Chicken Manicotti Recipe.  If not, I’ll just make Chicken Cacciatore

THURSDAY:  Fish, baked potatoes

FRIDAY: Pizza, frozen or homemade

To Do List

Most of my list this week involves around shopping, some of the shopping is carried over from last week.

  1. Grocery store
  2. Target
  3. Go to library and pick up book on hold
  4. Go get some nice but cool (cotton) tee-shirts for work
  5. J.C. Penny to pick up order (new towels!)
  6. Work in yard, get more rocks at hardware store
  7. Take boys to get Father’s Day cards and presents (should probably be #1 on this list but I may combine it with my Target trip)
  8. Figure out Father’s Day plan
  9. Clean off this computer desk
  10. Work with J in his room to clean it up a bit


Still working on front yard landscaping.  Started some sunflowers seeds so I need to figure out where to add those into my garden areas.

Looking Around The House

It could be a lot worse!

From The Camera

We went to the botanical gardens to see their Enchanted Forrest exhibit.  The kid in me wanted to get out my Barbie dolls and go play despite all the “do not touch” signs. What I’m Wearing Today

Black shirts, a navy blue shirt with a butterfly design, and pink camouflage sandals.  I’m hoping I don’t look like a giant bruise!

Simple Pleasure

A free day! Sometimes I can have too many in a row but nothing beats a totally free day after a few weeks of being busy.

Quote For The Week


What’s on your plan for this week?  Also, I’d love to know what you’re having for dinner tonight…

    Hello Dearest Jean!
    I hope you stay nice and cool with that hot weather. Go and run through the sprinkler!! 😉
    I do lots of cooking on the grill in summer. I love throwing all kinds of things in a foil packet – meat, veggies etc – throw some butter on top and seasonings and let it grill away. So easy and no clean up!
    Love the botanical pics – I want to go play too! 😛
    Great inspiration too. Blessings on your week. xoxo

      We did run quickly through a sprinkler covering a sidewalk while at the gardens 😉 Today it is looking like I might get to play in the rain, LOL. I should grill some chicken, thanks for the idea. Hope you are in the middle of a great one!
