Happy Homemaker Monday, Happy Autumn!

Super late with this tonight. Unexpectedly worked in the morning after only planning for the afternoon. And forgot about J’s baritone lesson (he was on it with reminding me so he didn’t miss it) which means I’m just now sitting down for my post at almost 9:00 PM.

Lots of odd working hours this week means I need to get this week planned! Joining in with Sandra over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for the fun Monday link up.

The Weather

It rained on and off all weekend. Seems fitting I have a sunset photo from Saturday to share as I’m typing my post up late. 

Today happened to be perfect first day of fall weather. Foggy and chilly to start the day and then, a bit warm in the afternoon.  Highs in the  80’s the next couple days, chance of some rain mid-week. Looks a lot cooler in the evenings though.

On My Reading Pile

I finished I Let You Go by Claire McGowan last week. Turned out to be much better than I expected with lots of twists. Started reading The Two Lila Bennetts by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke during J’s lesson. Thank goodness for that Kindle app on my phone!

On My TV

Happy to have new shows on the TV again. Meanwhile, I watched What We Did on Our Holiday on Amazon. Interesting one, equally funny and sad. And got hooked on Mr. Robot, I’m now on season 2. It’s a very intriguing, strange, cynical look at the world.

On My Menu

I don’t even know. Ha! Still working on cleaning out the freezer/fridge/making use of what’s in the pantry.

MONDAY: (tonight) J and I had chicken noodle soup and baked potatoes, G ate waffles, my husband ate chicken/apple sausage & hash-browns. (I worked 8:30-3:45) (J had a baritone lesson at 6:30)

TUESDAY: Chicken legs (carry over meal from last week)  (J has early morning band)

WEDNESDAY: Spaghetti (I work 7:30-3:45) (J has early morning band)

THURSDAY: Leftovers/OUT (I work 2-6) (J has evening band, G will take him and probably they’ll eat out before hand)

FRIDAY: OUT (probably Subway for J, and at the game for us) (I work 7-3:45) (Football game)

On My To Do List

  1. Finish paying bills
  2. Clean out upstairs freezer & fridge
  3. Go to grocery store
  4. Laundry
  5. Take back library books

Looking Around The House

It’s not terrible but I’d still like to give it a better cleaning and pull out the rest of the fall decorations.

    I ADORE your inspirational! It was the perfect first day of Fall here too. Sorry your work schedule is so odd – really makes it hard to plan – ESPECIALLY with kids! I’m working on menu plans that clean out the freezer too – really makes for odd grocery lists. Have a GREAT week.

      Thank you! I need to do a lot more of it. I’m outside a lot at my work but it’s been too long since I’ve went out on a nature walk by myself to just enjoy the day. Hope you have a wonderful week as well!
