Happy Monday! After a weird mid-week start to things last week, I’m happy to get back on track this week starting things off my a normal timed Happy Homemaker Monday post.
Joining in as always with Sandra, who hosts the Happy Homemaker Monday link up over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.
Feels like August out there this morning. A bit hot and humid. J’s been getting sunburned at band camp. He’s trying new 70 SPF this morning so hopefully, it works better. Slight chance of thunderstorms the rest of the week with highs in the mid 80’s and low 90’s.
On The Breakfast Plate
Chobani Flip Key Lime Pie yogurt & coffee.
Right Now I Am
Typing up this post around piles of papers and stuff removed from the desk drawers yesterday. Desk is empty but I still have the “no idea where to put the stuff I took out of it” problem.
On My Bedside Table
A book, the box of Ziploc space saver bags, and a tee-shirt
On My Reading Pile
I really need to get some new books as well as finish From The Ground Up by Howard Schulz. It’s on my to-do list for today.
Movies Or Shows I Watched This Weekend
Please don’t judge. I did lots o’ TV watching this weekend. Must have needed the downtime. I watched: Season 3 of Jessica Jones on Netflix. Then, hopped over to Amazon Prime to watch Good Omens (so fun!) before returning to Netflix for season 2 of Stranger Things. Now, I only have 3 episodes left in season 3 of Stranger Things.
On My TV This Week
Plan to finish Stranger Things and then, I might watch season 3 of Humans since Amazon finally added it. After that, I hope I’ll have found a book or two to read instead.
