Happy Homemaker Monday, Hello November!

A quick post today. Another working day for me. Went from working 7:30 to 4 to not working back to working 8:30 to 5. And now in the preprimary class. Blah!

Time to just quickly plan the week. As always, joining up with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom. See she added new categories for our new month. Second to last month of the year. Let’s hang in there.

The Weather

Just more Midwestern weirdness really. Cold this morning but supposed to warm up to low 70’s by the afternoon. A warm week with no rain. Above average temps in the mid 70’s predicted for the whole week. Hoping I get to soak in some sunshine!

On My Breakfast Plate

The usual. Flip yogurt, only kind left was a kid flavor of S’mores but I wanted the protein. Coffee. Vitamins.

Outside My Window

DAYLIGHT! I know I’m in the minority but I love when Daylight Savings turns off and we go back to normal light in the mornings. Let me just say this, listening in the back? The days get naturally shorter and longer.

Looking Around The House

Not even going to worry with this until Wednesday when I have a day off work (hopefully).

What I’m Wearing Today

Yellow work tee shirt, elephant pants, tennis shoes. I’ll add a green cardigan when I go to work (and a big coat for morning outdoor time).

To Do Today or This Week

Work today and tomorrow


Grocery store

Clean the house

Whatever I’m forgetting

Currently Reading

The Deepest South of All: True Stories From Natchez, Mississippi by Richard Grant. It’s very interesting and complex. Glad to be reading something with a bit of substance after a flurry of cozy mysteries. I enjoy them but sometimes I need some depth in my reading.

On My TV

Hooked on The Masked Singer. Watched a few movies over the weekend. Poltergeist still scares me though not as much since times have changed quite a bit. We watched an old, dumb and inappropriate but funny one on Halloween called Lone Star State of Mind.¬†And I was pleasantly surprised to find Terminator: Dark Fate wasn’t all that bad.

On The Menu This Week

No idea.

MONDAY: Probably leftovers *I work 8:30-5* *J has a baritone lesson at 6:30*

TUESDAY: Maybe Homemade Chik-Fil-A depends on how long it takes me to vote. *I work 7:45-4:15* *Election Day!*

WEDNESDAY: Roast in the crock pot for BBQ sandwiches

THURSDAY: Pork chops?


Something Fun To Share

Not sure if it counts as “fun” but I’m making a second try at a wildflower garden. Some of you may remember my well intentioned neighbor weed eating all those “weeds” the last time I tried. This time I have some fencing up around the area.

From The Camera 

Did you see the full “blue” moon on Halloween night? A real treat!

Quote For The Week

Forgive the repeat of last week but I think it’s important enough of a thought to share twice (especially in an election week).

We don’t have to agree on anything to be kind to one another. (Unknown).


I’m off to work. What kind of week do you have lined up?

      Thank you! I’m lucky as our best views of the moon are usually around 8:30 or 9 p.m. so well before my bedtime. Hope you’re having a great week!

    Great photos of the moon. Love the elephant pants! This week is kind of a normal schedule with tutoring sessions and taking kids to and from school. I do have an outing planned with my mom on Thursday morning to hit the library book warehouse before they close.for winter (fill up a bag for a $5 donation). Other than that we shall see what craziness election night and the days that follow.bring.

    Poor hard working Momma! I hope it’s a good week.
    I forgot I have some masked singers taped. I need to watch those. I love your pics – that moon was amazing, wasn’t it?? I’m so happy you’re going to do a wildflower garden. That’s awesome! Throw some fairies in there too. Perfection. I can’t wait to see.

      It’s not been a bad week so far, just busy! Definitely going to add some fairy gardens in there (really hope my flowers bloom next year). Hope your week is going great so far!

      Glad to know I’m not alone on being scared of that movie. I can only get those photos with the bridge camera’s moon setting, no idea how to get anything other than a white blob otherwise. Hope you had a great Halloween and are enjoying your week so far!

      The pants are super comfortable and easy to dress up or down. Book was great, entertaining and educational all at the same time. Hope you’re having a wonderful week so far!

    LOVE your photos this week. I also TOTALLY agree with you about daylight savings time and wish they would do away with it once and for all! So many other countries and even a few states have already. I can’t wait to see your wildflower garden. And Carrie’s right, a few fairies would look great! Have a GREAT rest of the week.

      Thank you! I saw where there’s now a push to make Daylight Savings Time year round but I’m not in favor of that at all, I love my light in the mornings. Really hope the wildflower garden works this time. I even (mostly) followed the planting directions (we roto-tilled the space) which is a pretty big deal for me, LOL. Hope you’re having a great week so far!
