Happy Homemaker Tuesday

Yesterday got away from me. Ran out of time for a quick morning post and then, ran out of energy for an evening one. It’s going to be another full day of work so I’m trying to get this post up this morning. Hopefully, I’ll have more success than yesterday.

Let’s get straight to it. Joining in as always with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom.

The Weather

Typical summer: HOT. Hotter when wearing a mask. I think the news said high today was supposed to be 93. Higher heat index. More heat next week. Always a chance of rain though it doesn’t look likely today.

How I’m Feeling This Morning

Glad to be getting back into my crazy routine of work but still a bit tired from yesterday. It was a long day with working 8:30-5:15, getting home and pretty much turning around to take J to his baritone lesson.

On My Mind

Just the stuff I’d like to get done this week, whether I’ll get called in tomorrow and Thursday as well. And how to keep from melting at work today, ha!

On My To Do List

  1. Still a few leftover items from the last list (mainly phone calls and work stuff)
  2. I did most the laundry on Sunday but do need to wash my work tee shirts (I air dry them so need some time)
  3. Clean out the fridge
  4. Grocery shopping (tentatively slating it for Thursday morning)
  5. Find some documents for G so he can renew his driver’s license

On My Breakfast Plate

Haven’t eaten yet but it’s gonna be the usual: Chobani Flip yogurt, a bit more coffee, and two gummy vitamins.

On My Reading Pile

I’m almost finished with The Little Village of New Starts by Donna Ashcroft. Enjoying it quite a bit more than I expected.

TV Viewing

We watched Independence Day on the Fourth of July (tradition) and I spent most of Sunday watching Fear the Walking Dead for my laundry folding show.

On The Menu This Week

Husband and kids are going to be on their own a few days this week…might get called in to work more (the week has that kind of feel to it)

MONDAY: Husband made spaghetti *I worked 8:30-5:15* *J had a baritone lesson at 6:30*

TUESDAY: No idea, there’s some grilled BBQ chicken in freezer, maybe that. *I work 10-6*

WEDNESDAY: Pork chops and baked potatoes?

THURSDAY: Chicken legs and salad or maybe OUT. *J is having a friend over*

FRIDAY: Same as Thursday *I work 12-5*

From The Camera

If you read my post about the baby blue jay, you might think this cat is looking up at it. Nope, I couldn’t see a single thing in the backyard tree she was looking up into last week.


Does anything say Happy Fourth of July more than an 800 shot Saturn Missile? I think not. Our neighbors answered with one of their own. It was our finale, their show lasted a bit longer than ours.

And finally, did anyone see that full moon on Saturday night? Spectacular!

Looking Around The House

Amazingly enough, not awful.

On My Prayer List

Preschool student who told me his dog passed away from blood cancer last week (and his family), coworker who’s father in law is in hospice and nearing the end, friend having surgery later this week, all the teachers and students (we’re exempting our preschool kids) starting summer school wearing masks. Family, strangers.

Quote For The Week

Of all things love is the most potent.  (Maria Montessori)


How’s your second week of July look?

      Thanks. I ended up working all week and it was very hard getting back into a routine. Of course, I had no trouble waking up bright and early this morning (Saturday), ha! Hope you’ve had a fantastic week!

    You sound very busy at work. I need routine, even since being retired. Especially for sleeping. Love your sweet kitty. The full moon shot is beautiful, I must have missed it. I feel for the school children , wearing a mask to school must feel strange. I am old enough( it was in the early 1960’s) remembering the air raid drills, hiding under our school desk, when the alarm went off. There were spooky times thinking we could be bombed. Hoping for better times, normal times to return. Take care! Have a great week ahead.

      It ended up being a super busy work week. Lots of variety which I enjoyed. I think we’re all hoping and praying for much better times to return soon. Hope you had a wonderful week!

      The moon on the 4th was amazing. I really wanted a shot of fireworks going off around it but we’re not in a spot where I could get a good photo like that. Still enjoyed seeing it 🙂 Hope you had a fun summer week!

    Hope you settle into work well. I am putting the Donna Ashcroft book on my list. Sometimes you just need one of those cosy lovely books. Your kitty photo is adorable! Have a wonderful week!

      Thanks, it was a fun, busy week but I’m glad the weekend is finally here. I’ve been reading the Donna Ashcroft book slowly because I’m enjoying it so much I don’t want it to end. I’ll definitely have to look up what else she’s written. Hope you had a great week!

    It’s been a couple weeks since we reopened the library and it was tough readjusting to a work schedule, so I totally know how you feel! Hope you get some time this week to unwind a bit!

      It’s a bit mentally and physically exhausting but I’ve enjoyed it. Ended up being a full week and looks like it’s going to end up perhaps being a pretty full month. Have a few open days (as of now) next week but then the last two weeks of July I’m covering for the office while someone is on vacation. Glad to do it as originally I was supposed to work this entire month anyway. Feels (almost) normal. Hope you’ve had a wonderful week!

    Thanks for your visit and comment. Love your moon shot we had very cloudy nights so I never got to see it
    Have a good day, and stay safe. Diane

      Glad you liked the shot. Sorry you had a cloudy night that’s always a bummer when there’s a great moon or night sky event and the sky around us is clouded over. Hope you’ve had a wonderful week!
