My brain’s listing a million items to check off a list this morning. Meanwhile, the rest of my body is still mumbling something about needing more coffee.
Hope everyone had a nice Mother’s Day. Mine was nice. Now, it’s time to focus on all things graduation related (oh, and G’s birthday). As soon as I finish this post, I’m off to find graduation things at Hobby Lobby and the party store. Hoping they have things left as I should have went over the weekend and did not.
Joining in with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom for this weekly planning post. These posts almost always help me get a bearing on my weeks especially the busy ones.
Ugh. I’ve about had it with our weather. Somehow, my warmer days disappeared and we were thrown back into fall/winter mode. Not too happy about it. We’re in some weird pattern where it’s sunny during the week and then, rains all weekend. No good. At least, today is supposed to be a sunny one. Supposed to be warmer as well.
On My Reading Pile
Still those overdue books though I renewed them. Had to stop reading my book about Prince as it was so boring. I love a good biography but this focused more on the technical stuff about his music and career. Read a couple of Maddie Dawson novels on my phone’s kindle app (The Survivors Guide To Family Happiness which was a slight bit better than A Piece Of Normal). And am currently reading The Accidental President: Harry S. Truman and The Four Months That Changed the World by A.J. Baime. Super interesting so far! (Note: I knew this but forgot….you can read books for FREE on Amazon prime and they have some great selections…)
Movies Or Shows I Watched This Weekend
Finished Colony season 3 on Netflix while doing laundry. Also, while doing laundry…Zombieland, really seems strange to call it a zombie movie with heart but that’s what it is. Highly recommend it. And while just being lazy…Skyline and…because I like to punish myself with bad movies….Beyond Skyline.
On The TV This Week
Depends on the weather and after my little marathon of way too much Netflix on Saturday, reading books takes priority.
On The Menu
Lots to do with graduation prep and end of the school stuff plus work so keeping it simple.
MONDAY: Spaghetti (carry over)
TUESDAY: Turkey sausage and chips (fruits & veggies in there somewhere)
WEDNESDAY: Chicken in some form, the last-minute chicken recipe I found last week was good…may repeat *I have a 9:30 hair appt*
THURSDAY: pork chops, baked potatoes *I work 8:15-3:45* *J has a baritone lesson* *I have a graduation recital for a friend’s son to attend*
FRIDAY: Pizza and salad *I work 8:15-3:45*
To Do List
- Return library books (please, don’t judge, library is in opposite direction of everything else)
- Grocery store
- Target (maybe)
- Hobby Lobby
- Party Store
- Sam’s club for one more box of mixed chips, maybe?
- Find photos of G (ha, it’s fun having kids born before the Internet and Facebook were a big)
- Make one of those photo display things for the graduation stuff table
- Touch base with the other 2 moms on the party plan
- Make a list of who needs graduation tickets
- Find dress to wear to graduation stuff
Looking Forward To
Seeing G’s graduation party come together this weekend (open house style and with 2 other friends at a local church)
Looking Around The House
Reminds me I should have put clean the house on my to-do list.
From The Camera
I had a *great* bird-watching week! Saw my first ever around here red-headed woodpecker. So pretty! Hoped he’d hang around longer but haven’t seen him since last week. And a hawk landed briefly in the Oak tree next door…
Plus I saw a gray catbird (new to me, I had to look it up in the bird book! Couldn’t get good photos) along with my usual finches, chickadees and cardinals.
Watching the banter among the early morning news cast.
