It’s another where has the year gone post from me! Really though…where has the year gone? This is the boys’ last week of school, not that I’m complaining about that.
Last week of school equals super busy in these parts so I definitely need to get a planning post going this week. Be sure to pop over and check out the blog of our Happy Homemaker Monday host, Sandra.
The Weather This Week
Hot! Hot! Hot! It’s supposed to be 91 degrees later today but I’ll take it. Mid to high 80s the rest of the week with odd chances of thunderstorms. I love this kind of weather, finally warm enough to be outside without worrying about jackets.
On My Reading Pile
Did manage to take back my overdue books and renew my library card last week. I’m reading The Bone Labyrinth by James Rollins right now. I like it but it takes a bit of concentration so I’m not breezing through it like I thought I might.
Movies or Television Shows I Watched This Weekend
We were visiting family out-of-town over the weekend so I didn’t watch much television. I watched the Jason Bourne movie (yes, again) Thursday night/Friday morning. We watched some HGTV and some sort of live police show as well.
On My TV
Probably, just going to watch The Flash or something random on Netflix.
The word of the week for my menu is EASY. I am not in the mood to be messing with fancy dinners or even dinners that require lots of effort.
MONDAY: BLT’s, Chips or French Fries (depending on my motivation level…probably chips), Fruit *G has a band meeting at school at 7*
TUESDAY: Tacos *G has early morning band practice* *J needs a sack lunch*
WEDNESDAY: Chicken legs, rice, salad *Open house at the middle school for J*
THURSDAY:Roast in the Crock pot
FRIDAY: Spaghetti or Fish…or most likely OUT to celebrate the last day of school *I work 8 until 4:45*
- LOTS O’ Laundry (In progress)
- Whole House Clean Up
- Still need to clean out the fridge and freezer

- Water flowers/garden
- Target or somewhere for soap and shampoo
- More Vacation Planning
- General Summer Planning
- Whatever other stuff I didn’t do from the last list
- Whatever other stuff I’m forgetting to list here
Still working on the landscaping in the front yard but haven’t done anything new to it yet. My aunt gave me a beautiful pot of flowers for Mother’s Day so I need to figure out where I want to put it. The boys (and my husband) gave me the rain barrel I wanted. We still need to get that set up (I haven’t managed to get a photo of it yet).
Looking Around The House
Looks like we left it a mess when we took off for the weekend and then added to that mess when we returned. Yikes!
From The Camera
I already shared this on my personal face book page but I really do love this photo of a group of windmills in Oklahoma at sunset.
What I’m Wearing Today
I opted to start laundry before showering so right now I’m in the clothes I threw on to run G to school: flowered tee-shirt, khaki shorts, and tennis shoes without socks. I still need to shower and put on “real” clothes though.
The smells of spring/summer flowers blooming, freshly mowed grass, the neighbors’ (or own) dinner on the grill, hot asphalt, baseball stadiums, amusement parks, etc.
