It’s actually Sunday but I’m trying to get a jump on things this week. Never know when my phone is going to ring with a request to work. Hoping it doesn’t ring tomorrow as I’m feeling a bit under the weather this morning but I do plan to be ready if it does.
Linking up as always with Sandra over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom, the host of the Happy Homemaker Mondays.
Normal?! It’s a bit of a gray, overcast day with a few rain drops falling now and then. Supposed to have highs in the 50’s most the week but I do see some 60’s on the map toward the end.
On The Breakfast Plate
Cinnamon apple oatmeal and coffee (actually bought a small bag of Starbucks Peppermint Mocha so it’s mixed in with the regular Folgers).
As I Look Outside My Window
Can’t see outside the basement windows. Earlier this morning, I saw the gray cloudy sky and a possum up past his bedtime sitting under the bird feeders.
Right Now I Am
Working on this post while washing our bedding (the washing machine is whirring in the background). I also hear footsteps upstairs telling me someone else just woke up for the day.
As I Look Around The House
I cleaned a bit yesterday so it could look worse. Probably do a bit more cleaning today.
On My To-Do List
- Still need to pay bills
- Finish up the laundry
- Wash all the bedding (guess that should go with laundry)
- Clean the house a bit more
- Whatever I’m forgetting
I’ve been struggling with this a bit lately.
MONDAY: Some sort of chicken and salad *J has a baritone lesson at 6:30*
TUESDAY: Roast in the crock pot *I have Bunco*
WEDNESDAY: Maybe breakfast for dinner…pancakes, bacon, orange juice
THURSDAY: Pork chops (already cooked, from freezer), baked sweet potatoes *I work 12-4:45*
FRIDAY: Pizza of some sort *I work 7:45-4:45*
Finished two books this weekend: Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Serial Crime Unit by John E. Douglas and Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. I reviewed both over on Good Reads but much preferred the John E. Douglas book. Had Sharp Objects been the first book I ever read by Flynn, I doubt I’d have read any more of her work.
On The TV
Just a little bit of everything. Found some re-runs of The Middle, so enjoyed that. Watched a dumb Netflix movie called Fractured. And have been watching the Netflix series The Toys That Made Us while doing the laundry.
Some day I’ll have something exciting to share here. Today is not that day.
New Recipe I Tried Or Want To Try
I’ve been itching to try this ever since reading a short description in a book: Tortilla de Patatas
Perhaps dinner tonight? We shall see…
From The Camera
Grabbed the camera and took a much-needed walk through the park yesterday morning. It’s the one I drive through on my way to work. Nice to get a slower perspective and have time to walk down to the lake I only see glimpses of when driving.
Quote For The Week
And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul. (John Muir)
What’s on your agenda for the week ahead?
