Happy Homemaker Sunday Night (Monday)

Thought I’d get a jump on my weekly planning post. I work all day tomorrow so won’t be around until Tuesday most likely.

It’s been the kind of weekend where I look up and the hours have passed. Just now I realized somehow instead of 6:00PM, it’s almost 8:00! And not because I’ve been especially busy. Been rather lazy all day really as it was dark and rainy outside (still raining).

Later I’ll go back and link up with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom. Let’s see what the week ahead holds.

The Weather

We’ve cooled off and it’s currently 54 degrees outside and still raining. Yesterday it was 85 degrees and sunny so this is a bit of a change. I don’t see a predicted temperature of above 75 for the coming week. However, that could always change. No more rain the rest of the week either.

How I’m Feeling This Morning Tonight

A bit tired, a bit grumpy (Leftover from a small dispute with my youngest son about the a/c. Clearly, we’re not turning on the a/c when it’s 54 degrees out. I’m so unreasonable as to suggest he could just open his window. Ha!).

On My Mind

Mainly thinking about how I really don’t want to get up early tomorrow. Trying to decide when and if I’ll go to the store this week. Debating if I’ll do a 31 days post in October (need to decide soon!). If I do, think it’ll simply be a casual thing where I just post a little something every day and not try to conform to any type of theme. My theme might be the lack of a theme, just day to day tidbits from my rather unexciting life. Selling it well aren’t I?

On My To Do List

Some of these may look familiar

  1. Grocery store at some point
  2. Sort out Internet hosting
  3. Camera homework
  4. Still have bulbs to plant (I bought more, that’s why)
  5. Letters to write
  6. Clean the house (always)
  7. Get out October/Halloween decorations (maybe)

On My Breakfast Plate

Coffee, toast. Then later, instant cinnamon roll oatmeal. Back to boring yogurt tomorrow.

On My Reading Pile

Still plugging away at He’s Not Lazy: Empowering Your Son To Believe In Himself by Adam Price. Took a break last week and quickly read The Price of Time by Tim Tigner. Quick, enjoyable mystery as long as I didn’t think too hard about the silliness of some parts of the plot.

On My TV

We’ll watch the Monday night football game, of course. Husband’s been watching Black Sails on Hulu. I can’t get into it much. It’s as if someone said, you know let’s see if we can stretch out those Pirates of the Caribbean movies into a long series. He tells me there’s some plot about them looking for gold. I don’t know, it’s one of those historical type shows he likes.

Personally, I’ve been watching Keep Cooking and Carry On with Jamie Oliver. A dangerous one as I think I might be able to make the stuff he cooks. Somehow even the things he makes with ingredients I dislike look appealing to me.

On The Menu This Week

Might be an interesting one depending on when I get around to the store…

MONDAY: Not sure. Probably leftovers (we had enchilada chicken and rice today) or something scrounged up from the freezer *I work 8-5* *J has a baritone lesson at 6:30*

TUESDAY: French toast

WEDNESDAY: Lasagna soup

THURSDAY: Husband’s choice, unless I get inspired and throw something in the crock pot *I work 12-6*

FRIDAY: Something easy, maybe a fend for yourself kind of night

From The Camera

Looking Around The House

I think it’s time to start a round of decluttering.

New Recipe I Tried Last Week Or One That We Really Enjoyed

On a whim, last Monday I made the spicy potato soup Schotzy mentioned in her blog.  Three out of four of us liked it enough to give it a make it again vote.

To Relax This Week I Will

Go for a walk with my camera, clear some clutter from the house, read, spend Sunday morning with a magazine.

Something I Want To Share

The documentary I watched last week inspired me to take a tiny bit of action. I disabled the Facebook app from my phone. Now, if I want to check it, I have to come down here to the desk top computer. I find I’m not missing it all that much.

One other thing I did is borrow a new tradition. This post over on How To Hygge The British Way made me think about how I could have my own Sunday morning magazine time to replace the days of casually reading the newspaper I’ve been missing.

So this morning, I woke up and read through all the September magazines. Moving forward, I’ll probably focus on just one or two magazines. Today was different as I needed to clear out the old ones and the weather was rainy day perfect. I even tore out pages interesting to me and made an old school paper and pen list of books and websites to check out later.

On My Prayer List

Friends, family, strangers. A healthy and peaceful fall season for us all.

Quote For The Week

And all at once, summer collapsed into fall. (Oscar Wilde)


Are you ready for October?

    Greetings from Greece. And this is you not being organised? I think I’m exhausted just reading your list of jobs. Have fun and don’t forget the bird pictures.

      Only exhausting if I follow the plan, keeps me on track though I seldom get to all of it. Often change things up as well. Definitely won’t forget the bird pictures. Hope you are still busy enjoying your holiday!

      September did go super quick this year. Odd since we didn’t do nearly the amount of things we normally would’ve been off doing. Got my grocery run in this morning. I’ve never done the grocery delivery thing, too much of a have to see it kind of person. I’ll have to check out Fargo. Hope your week is off to a great start!

      The soup was really good, I actually spiced it up a bit with some hot peppers from our garden instead of the hot sauce called for in the recipe. Hope your week is going well so far!

      Yes, I think that is very true. I found myself checking FB way more often on my new phone so took it off but I do miss it sometimes. Hope your Wednesday is going well.

      I sure miss the days when I was so smart, LOL! Well, maybe not too much. I’m really enjoying the Jamie Oliver show, seems very real. Yes, I know exactly what you mean with the taking photos. Hope you have a great weekend (Thursday is close enough, right?).
