And people to see! Happy Monday! I got out a little over the weekend. Also, my husband finally took a few days off work. Woke up feeling so refreshed this morning. Those little things were very much needed.
A long solo walk in the park on Thursday. Can’t remember Friday, probably just another at home day. On Saturday, I ran a few errands with my husband as he searched for a new toolbox. And convinced him to stop at local garden store I’d never seen. Small place that just popped up, happy to give it my business.
Sunday, I went out with my husband again to pick up the toolbox he chose and then, came home and planted my flowers. In the afternoon, we all attended a graduation parade for my nephew. I can’t remember the last time we were all four in the car at the same time. It was nice. And of course, it was nice to cheer on the seniors who aren’t set to graduate in a proper ceremony until late July.
Now, that we’ve started a new week, it’s time to plan with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom.
It’s cloudy this morning but not cold. We’re supposed to have some cloudy days but thankfully, not a lot of rain chances until the weekend. And it’s supposed to be normal (upper 60’s and 70’s for our temps). I’ll take it!
How I Am Feeling This Morning
Energized and happy though with a bit of a throat tickle (hello, cottonwood pollen). Also, super excited about this little message in my inbox this morning:
You are not required to report, your service is complete.
No jury duty in June! It’s a big worry off my shoulders. The driving downtown part was my biggest concern as I’ve not done that in years but then throw in the Covid-19 concerns and well, big sigh of relief happening over here.
On My Mind
How it almost feels like a normal week. J’s lessons resume tonight, I have a hair appointment on Wednesday, and need to decide what we’ll do for G’s birthday on Thursday. Thinking it’s time to actually clean up this basement space for guests again (not that we’re there yet but I feel more ready to entertain the idea). It’s funny how I suddenly feel a lot more motivated to do things around here now that I know we won’t have to be spending all our time here.
On My To Do List
Drop off J’s school books and band tuxDONE
- Pay bills
- Conquer mountain of dishes and laundry
- Clean/clear out this basement space
- Figure out what G wants to do for his birthday
- Look into getting J a haircut somewhere (maybe with my hairdresser though I’m not giving up my appointment!)
- Clean up yard/plant flowers
- Go to Grocery store/Target
- Check into if I can return my library books (I think I can outside in the box but I want to be sure)
- Clean out fridge/freezer (just a bit as this is pretty ongoing)
On My Breakfast Plate
Chobani strawberry cheesecake flip yogurt, coffee
On My Reading Pile
Read Better Believe It by Fern Ronay last week. She writes uplifting reads where the main characters get guidance during their dreams from family members in heaven. I really do enjoy her books. And I started in on Where the Story Starts by Imogen Clark. Struggling a bit as there’s quite a bit of back and forth time jumps with the characters.
Not quite as much, watched the movie Thor: Ragnarok one night (we own the DVD). I also broke down and signed up for a 30 day trial of CBS all access to catch up on Seal Team. Going to cancel it for sure, not a great streaming service. And don’t get me started on why they expect me to pay to watch free TV shows. That said, I’m enjoying getting all caught up on my show.
On The Menu This Week
I’m not really planning on a grocery store trip until Tuesday so this could all change. Current plan:
MONDAY: Roast in the crock pot (carry over) *J has a baritone lesson at 6:30*
TUESDAY: Teriyaki chicken and rice (carry over)
WEDNESDAY: Taco salads *I have a hair appointment at 10:30*
THURSDAY: G’s 19th birthday. Maybe OUT?
FRIDAY: Pizza, salad or OUT depending on G’s birthday plans
From The Camera
Sunshiny days even give the trees happy hearts!
A little bug photo bombed my daisy picture!
Looking Around The House
Uh, see to-do list about mountains of laundry and dishes.
Finally, cleaned our face masks. Need to order more gray ones (I know they look black in the picture, they’re wet) as the blue one turned out to be a bit too small and uncomfortable for J.
Chore I’m Not Looking Forward To Today or This Week
Actually, nothing is striking me as too awful today. Just in the mood to get things done.
To Relax This Week I Will
Play my little video game (Animal Crossing), read my book, get outside
On My Prayer List
My oldest son who’s struggling a bit with the re-opening and worries about the virus, friends, family, strangers. That we overcome this virus sooner than later. All the families at the graduation parade yesterday. The world.
