Despite having all last week at home, it went by in a blur. Probably because there was a holiday in there plus we traveled to Oklahoma on Friday. So technically, I guess I only had 3 “real” days at home.
New week, same 3 days at home routine except I work the last two days of this week. And then, I work every day for the following two weeks. I need to spend the next 3 days getting a bit organized.
Happy to get started by joining in with Sandra from Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for the Happy Homemaker Monday posts. Let’s just move straight on to the categories….
Typical July stuff around here. Hot and a bit humid with highs in the upper 80’s to lower 90’s. Don’t see many chances of rain this week. A good thing since we’ve had more than enough rain for a while.
On The Breakfast Plate This Morning
I’m not sure. Just coffee so far although there are two boxes of Krispy Kreme donuts sitting on the kitchen table. We drove by there on the way to and from Oklahoma and my husband had to stop. We used to have one just down the road but they shut down for some reason (the store was always busy so we don’t know what happened but we miss it!).
Right Now I Am
Working on this post in a quiet house while I impatiently wait on the dryer to finish so I can get dressed for the day.
On My Bedside Table
It’s surprisingly somewhat clear. The only things on it right now are the blue ray remote, a small bird book, and an empty hanger.
On My Reading Pile
Still working on Simply Clean. I did take a break from it to read Little Broken Things by Nicole Baart. It was good but not as engaging as the other book I read by her.
Movies Or Shows I Watched This Weekend
We’ll have to count Thursday (the 4th of July) as the weekend because we went to Oklahoma to clean out my husband’s late grandfather’s house. And stayed there with no Wi-Fi or TV! The boys stayed with his aunt so they didn’t melt from lack of those things, ha!
I did have my traditional viewing of the movie, Independence Day on the 4th of July as well as watch some of the Jack Ryan series on Amazon (I thought it was pretty good).
On My TV This Week
I’ll probably finish the Jack Ryan series and then see if they’ve added anything new and interesting to Netflix.
On The Menu This Week
Still not excited by the cooking vibe but after lots of eating out over the weekend, we do need to make an effort to eat at home this week. And I do need to grocery shop so all this is subject to change.
MONDAY: Taco salads (I’m planning to make extra taco meat and throw it in the freezer)
TUESDAY: Pork chops, baked sweet potatoes
WEDNESDAY: Chicken legs, salad
THURSDAY: Spaghetti *I work 8:15-4:30*
FRIDAY: Grocery store chicken and salad unless I think of something else *I work 8:15-4:30*
On My To Do List
- Pay bills
- Clean out fridge and clear out trash before tomorrow (trash day)
- Start cleaning out this desk (we’re moving it out of the bedroom)
- Take J to get birthday card for friend’s birthday party (have to do today as party is tomorrow)
- Renew library books and/or return some
- Go to grocery store!!
- Register J for school next year (just the computer stuff)
- Stuff I didn’t do last week: write dates on calendar, go to bank
- Pick a garden area in the yard to finish
What I Am Creating
Looking Forward To
Is it too early in the week to say the weekend? So far, whispers it…no plans on the calendar for Saturday or Sunday.
Looking Around The House
It looks like we just got back from out-of-town and brought stuff home with us. Need to find places for stuff.
From The Camera
My flowers by the front porch are finally really blooming!
What I’m Wearing Today
I’m still in my nightshirt while waiting on the dryer. Probably just shorts & a tee-shirt later.
One of My Simple Pleasures
Being in my own house to get ready for the day, fix meals, etc.
