Our area’s original stay at home order expires on Friday! Exciting until I remember they’ve extended it until May 15. SIGH. And the city has already announced the local pool won’t open this year (not that we went all that often).
So it’s time to plan another week at home. Glad to still have these posts even if my plans look so much different than usual. A sad part of my week is each Sunday when my calendar reminders arrive full of things we don’t go do anymore. No baritone lesson for J tonight, no bunco for me on Tuesday (though we are trying to plan some sort of virtual get-together), no regular social outings for my college kid, and no school events either.
However, the sun is shining, it is spring time, and there’s enough cleaning to do around here to last a lifetime (please, please let this end before I have to do that much cleaning!)

It’s finally going to feel like spring time this week! Highs in the upper 60’s most the week and we might hit the 70’s on Thursday. Rainy day chance on Wednesday (Earth day).
How I Am Feeling This Morning
I didn’t sleep well overnight so a bit tired. Still got up and showered, got dressed, and well that’s it. Helped some but might break down and think about a nap later today.
On My Mind
The things I’d like to do today and how my energy level doesn’t exactly match my list. Missing my work a little more this week. I’m usually asked to help with the Earth day celebrations, sigh. Now I’m not even sure they’ll need me for my previously scheduled days in mid-May.
On My To Do List
- Everything (yes, all of it) from last week
- Clean the house
- Have J clean his room
- Get the garden ready for some seeds/plants
- Mow the front lawn (maybe)
On My Breakfast Plate
Strawberry cheesecake flavored Chobani Flip yogurt, coffee
On My Reading Pile
Checked out The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson (e-book) from the library. It started off pretty slowly but it’s starting to improve. I’m going to read it and then watch the movie on Amazon.
Still need to finish season 5 of Arrested Development. The last two seasons aren’t quite as finessed as the first 3. For fun or because of boredom, I watched the movie Total Recall over the weekend (the old one, not the new one). I’ve also started re-watching my all time favorite show, Fringe.
On The Menu This Week
All subject to change based on mood, whether or not I go ahead and organize the freezer, and the whims of all the other people around here.
MONDAY: Spaghetti, garlic bread, salad (lunch: grilled cheese)
TUESDAY: taco salads (lunch: open-faced meatball subs)
WEDNESDAY: slow cooker pineapple pork loin (lunch: leftover broccoli/chicken/rice) *Earth Day!
THURSDAY: BLT’s, french fries (lunch: scrambled eggs)
FRIDAY: Free for all day, I’m not cooking! (lunch: peanut butter & honey on toast)
From The Camera
Looking Around The House
It’s a cat hair catastrophe! Unless we have a second (possibly third) cat living here. Also, needs a good cleaning. On today’s agenda.
Chore I’m Not Looking Forward To Today Or This Week
Helping to inspire J to clean his room. It needs a serious airing out.
To Relax This Week, I Will
Spend lots of time outside in the sunshine!
On My Prayer List
All the school kids missing their friends, teachers, and especially for those who school was a safe place. Friends. Family. Strangers.
