I’m usually a bit sad to see August go but not this year. This year, I’m ready for fall. Thinking perhaps we all want to just move this year along a bit.
Speaking of moving along, I need to get this post up quickly now. Thought I had the day to meander but just got called into work. Only for a half day and I could’ve said no. However, I already work Wednesday and Thursday in the same classroom so decided to go ahead and work.
Straight to the categories provided by Sandra, our host of this link up, over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom.
Thunderstorms moving through the area this morning. Already seeing a trickle of water in our basement. However, we really needed the rain so I’m glad to hear the thunder. Chance of thunderstorms all day today and lesser chance tomorrow. Highs in the low 80’s most the week.
How I’m Feeling This Morning
Slept decent, drank way too much coffee, but more or less ready to tackle the day.
On My Mind
The day ahead, how online school weeks are going to be hard around here. I’m already missing the built in routine of last week and I think J is as well. All the things I planned to do around here now put on hold for a few hours. Whether I’ll end up working Tuesday as well. Usual Monday morning mind racing I suppose.
On My To Do List
- LAUNDRY (all caps for emphasis because there is so much of it)
- Normal house cleaning
- Fall countdown cleaning (Today’s task: Clean all the doors! Dust the frames, wipe down the front and back of them. Post with rest of the tasks coming tomorrow)
- Write blog posts
- Pick up camera every day
On My Breakfast Plate
Cinnamon swirl bagel with cream cheese and I think I already mentioned the too much coffee.
On My Reading Pile
Last week I came across (in my kindle app) a new Ginger Bolton book, Jealously Filled Donuts (Deputy Donuts Mystery #3). Fun, silly cozy mystery. Survival of the Fritters was the first cozy mystery type book I ever read and it got me hooked on the genre. Need to something new to read this week.
On My TV
Lots of Bill and Ted! Watched Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Then, signed up for a 7 day trial to Starz (need to remember to cancel this week!) to watch Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey. Plan to watch the sequel soon. Trying to decide whether to brave the theater, maybe go to the drive in, or just SIGH watch it at home on demand. Was so looking forward to seeing it in the theater pre-pandemic but now the idea of sitting in a theater makes me fairly nervous.
On The Menu This Week
Feel like I should have some ideas but I’m struggling. You’ll see quite a bit of carry over from last week.
MONDAY: Maybe fish, baked potatoes, salad *I work 11:30-3:30* *J has a baritone lesson at 6:30*
WEDNESDAY: Hawaiian pulled pork sandwiches *I work 11-3:45*
THURSDAY: Spaghetti? *I work 7:30-3:45* *J has band practice 6:00-8:45*
FRIDAY: Fend for yourself or frozen pizza
From The Camera
Might get a sunflower this summer after all…

Looking Around The House
Today’s original plan was to clean it so…
On My Prayer List
Friends, family, strangers, our country, the world. For a kindness pandemic to overtake the current one.
