Hope everyone had a nice Easter weekend! It was a bit chaotic around here. Easter brunch was nice although I really do feel as if I could sleep for 2 days straight now.
Late getting my post up as Doug’s aunt from out-of-town stayed with us and didn’t leave until about noon yesterday. Then, I spent the day slowly cleaning my brunch serving dishes and doing a bit of laundry. Just a slow, easy kind of day.
Now, I’m taking some time to link up with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom to plan the week ahead.
100% chance of Oak tree pollen! Seriously, our car windshields are green! Other than the pollen, it’s been super nice. Was almost hot yesterday hitting into the 80’s with the sunshine. Back closer to normal now in the lower 70’s. Chances of rain tonight and tomorrow (hope it does to wash a bit of the pollen down…I don’t have allergies but I know some who are suffering right now) and then, nice for the rest of the week.
On My Reading Pile
A bunch of way over due library books! Still reading The Devil Colony on my phone.
Movies Or Shows I Watched This Weekend
Some silly movie called The Silence on Netflix. My husband started it, declared it stupid and turned it off but of course, I was interested so went back and watched the rest of it. Note: It was stupid. Part of one called The Highway Men, also on Netflix. Fell asleep, need to watch the rest. Nothing else of note really. Earlier last week I binge-watched the entire season of Black Summer when I should have been doing other things. Really intriguing prequel to Z-Nation,hope they’ll have more seasons.
On The TV This Week
Not sure. Probably just going to try to catch up on the episodes of SEAL Team and God Friended Me.
The week after brunch is a bit of a clean out the fridge/freezer/pantry meal plan around here aka known as I don’t want to go to the store! The fridge and freezer are a mess right now so this all may change depending on what I discover as I clean.
MONDAY: We had spaghetti (except my husband who worked late and had brisket, leftover in freezer)
TUESDAY: Chicken legs, baked potatoes
WEDNESDAY: Ham, mac and cheese maybe
THURSDAY: On Their Own *I work 3-6* & have Mom’s Night Out
FRIDAY: Maybe tacos *I have tentative dinner plans with other friends
To Do List
- A whole lot of housecleaning
- Pay Bills
- Have lots of blog posts I’d like to write if I could find time
- Graduation stuff
- Not stress eat all the brunch leftovers & candy
Hopefully, a more relaxed and clean home. Main focus of the week. Everything is in a bit of after a holiday gathering chaos right now.
Looking Forward To
A bit of calm between events, planting some more flowers in the yard
Looking Around The House
I see lots of work to be done

What I’m Wearing Today
Black show shirt from the high school marching band and khaki shorts. I’m freezing though so may have to change into jeans.
