Glad to be back to writing a Happy Homemaker Monday post on an actual Monday. It’s going to be another busy week ahead but maybe I can get a head start on things this time.
As always, don’t forget to check out our host, Sandra’s page, Diary of A Stay At Home Mom!
With 10 days left in the school year, a band concert, Mother’s Day weekend, and I’m sure 2 or 3 other things I’m forgetting, this week really needs a plan!
Beautiful! Finally, my kind of weather.
Highs in the low 80s and sunny the first couple of days this week. Pretty good chances of thunderstorms on Wednesday and Thursday but it’s not going to be cold so it will be okay. Back to sunny for the weekend.
On My Reading Pile
Same stack of overdue library books as last week. I may have flipped through some magazines last week but that was about it. I just need to set aside some time every day when I plan to read.
Movies Or Television Shows I Watched This Weekend
Sadly, we had a visitation and funeral for the mother of good friends of my husband to attend on Friday evening/Saturday that took up most of our weekend since the graveside service was out-of-town. I watched a few episodes of Breaking Bad (watching it again) and my husband was watching Last Man Standing last night.
On My TV
Probably just The Flash. I thought last week was the season finale for some reason but there are a couple of episodes left in the season. I thought last week was pretty hokey so hopefully, they can redeem themselves for me.
As much as I needed a menu plan last week, I’m still struggling with any desire to plan one. I’ve decided to do another sugar detox (basically I’m just following the same plan as 2 weeks ago) because I felt pretty good when I was cutting the sugar out of everything.
Still trying to switch us over to lighter, healthier fare.
That’s the goal anyway. Last night we had dinner at Quick-trip so it’s obviously going to be a bit of a process around here.
MONDAY: Ham steaks, potatoes, maybe macaroni and cheese for the kids, salad *G may have a meeting at school*
TUESDAY: fish for us, macaroni and cheese for the kids if I don’t make it tonight or frozen shrimp for them, baked potatoes, asparagus if it doesn’t cost a fortune when I go to the store
WEDNESDAY: Spaghetti, salad, garlic bread or I may throw a roast in the crock pot *haircut day*
THURSDAY: Probably just leftovers or OUT *J’s band concert & I work until 3:45*
FRIDAY: OUT (we’re going on a road trip)
- Whole House Clean Up
- Grocery store
- Review Calendar and make sure I have everything on it
- A Little Bit o’ Laundry
- Renew Library Card (I’ll do this while hanging my head in shame and returning my now very overdue books)
- Mother’s Day shopping
- Work in the yard/garden
- Clean out freezers
Still working on my flower garden area in the front yard. Added to it yesterday. I have plans for the back half of this but as much as I want to buy all the things, I need to do it in phases.
Looking Around The House
Cue the Jaws music, or whatever music it is you find scary.
From The Camera
I didn’t have the heart to mow down these little white flowers that sprung up wild in the backyard so I left them over here by the swing set. I have no idea what they are called?
What I’m Wearing Today
Pastel colored flowered tee-shirt, jeans, and tennis shoes but I’ll probably change into shorts if gets hot later.
Vacation planning, really enjoy the process of researching and learning about new places.
