Happy Monday! Do you ever mix up dates? I did! I thought we left tonight for a trip. Apparently,not so fast. We have to hang around for a couple more days. Good thing as I have lots to do still.
I’ll share more about our trip (Can you tell I’m a little excited?) upon our return. Like to keep my outings a mystery from the paparazzi.
While I anxiously await our departure, I’m home today to plan our short week. Joining in with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom for the fun.
Spring has sprung! It’s so pretty outside I can hardly bear to be inside. No wonder I’m so bad at spring cleaning. As soon as it warms up, I want to spend all my time outside with singing birds, sitting on the front porch with the little gray cat, and enjoying the warm breezes. Of course, I do hear whispers on the news of a cold front arriving this weekend.
On My Reading Pile
Finished (finally) Outer Order, Inner Calm by Gretchen Rubin. You can read my review over on Goodreads if you’re interested. Not my favorite of her works but still a good reference guide. I also just finished up Flash: The Homeless Donkey Who Taught Me About Life, Faith, And Second Chances by Rachel Anne Ridge. A great read, spoke to my soul.
Movies or Shows I Watched This Weekend
Watched the series called Hanna (only 1 season so far) on Amazon Prime. Enjoyed it. Apparently, it’s a spin-off of a movie of the same name (not on Amazon Prime, sigh). Other than that, see the weather. And note the problem of having a favorite show on Sunday nights: preempted for everything.
On My TV
See the weather paragraph above. Not much…I’ll be outside! Maybe a rerun of Fringe while I’m doing some necessary inside chores.

Short week for planning the menu here!

What I Am Creating
Yet another garden area in the backyard! My husband moved some items and where there’s dirt, I see a flower garden!
My vision for the backyard will take a few years. That’s okay though. Gives me something to do.
Looking Forward To
Our trip! Easter Brunch! Hoping they’ll ask me to help with Earth Day at preschool. (They usually do). A wedding shower to attend later this month!
Looking Around The House
Not awful but definitely in need of a good spring cleaning. And someone (ahem…) tracked mud through it yesterday and needs to clean it up.
What I’m Wearing Today
Light blue 2014 KC Royals American League Champions tee-shirt, tan corduroy pants, and tennis shoes. The “throw something on so I can take a kid to school” look.
One Of My Simple Pleasures
Having the windows open and a breeze of fresh air blowing through the house.
Safe travels for our family. Hearts to soften in extended family members. Health for a coworker. Allergy sufferers that they might find some relief to enjoy this beautiful season. All of you to have healthy, happy weeks.
I have chosen to be happy because it is good for my health. (Voltaire)
What are you looking forward to this week?
