Happy Labor Day! The unofficial end of summer and beginning of the fall season (and yes, I know it means other things as well). Who’s ready for a wonderful fall season? Who wonders who just typed that?
I’m surprisingly happy about fall this year. It just feels like it’s going to be a great one!
Getting a bit of a jump on my Monday planning post simply because I have time. And I need to figure out what dinners work with my low-spend, low-sugar September plans. As always, joining in with Sandra over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.
On My Breakfast Plate:
I had a slice of Guatemalan banana bread, some coffee, and a glass of ice water with lemon and peppermint oil drops in it.
Right Now I Am:
Working on finishing this post in “the dungeon” aka the basement since I’ve okayed my nephew spending the night. They won’t want me hanging out down here tomorrow morning.
On My Reading Pile:
Last week I read The Beautiful No: And Other Tales of Trial, Transcendence, and Transformation by Sheri Salata, started in on Love for Imperfect Things: How to Accept Yourself in a World Striving for Perfection by Haemin Sunim, and took a break to read Beneath the Attic by V.C. Andrews.
Movies or Shows I Watched This Weekend:
Last week I finished watching Humans and binge-watched season 3 of The Good Place (I really love that show, glad they get another season to finish out the story-line). Found an oddly good movie starring Ryan Reynolds called Self Less on Netflix. And of course, at some point today, I’ll start watching season 9 (I think?) of The Walking Dead as they’ve finally added it on Netflix as well.
On My TV This Week:
The Walking Dead on Netflix, not sure what else.
On The Menu:
MONDAY: Ham and green beans (maybe this recipe for the beans) *J still has his baritone lesson at 6*
TUESDAY: Spaghetti and meatballs, salad, bread *J has early morning band practice*
WEDNESDAY: Chicken taco salads *J has early morning band practice* *I work 1-3:45*
THURSDAY: Leftovers *J has evening band practice*
FRIDAY: OUT,probably Subway (tradition) *I work 1-5* *First football game of the season*
On My To Do List:
- Clean house/pull out early fall decorations
- Usual clean fridge/laundry/grocery store
- One 15 minute de-clutter/organizing project each day
- Mow the lawn (really should happen today)
- Write 2 additional blog posts
Looking Forward To:
Going to a wedding with my husband on Saturday night
From The Camera:
What I’m Wearing Today:
Light Turquoise Duluth Tee-Shirt, Khaki shorts, sandals
One of My Simple Pleasures:
Taking a mid-day rest (I don’t nap) with the windows open, a gentle breeze blowing, and the sound of lawn mowers whirring in the background
Quote For The Week:
Life is like a cup of tea…it’s all in how you make it. (Irish proverb)
What do you have planned for this first week in September?
