It's time for another Happy Homemaker Monday with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. Click here if you'd like to join in .
HIgh 80s all weekend so I'm glad to see 69 and 70 in the forecast for the latter part of the week. Broke down and turned on the air conditioner yesterday but only ran it from 8pm to 11pm to cool down the upstairs. Longing for a single story house again.
On my reading pile:::
Put Dear Bob and Sue to one side to work on An English Country Manor that I picked up from the lending library at the British food store. I also picked up, at Costco, Lilac Girls and Everyone Brave is Forgiven for the reunion, either to read by the lake or to keep my mind off being in the air. Not a fan of flying at all.
Victorian Slum House, still need to watch the last episode
The White Princess
House of Cards, into Season 4 so I'm almost caught up
Turn, Season 3 although we're going to start 1 and 2 again so we can remember what's going on!
On the menu for this week:::
Monday - Grilled Shrimp, sides to be determined
Tuesday - Barbecued Ribs, ^^
Wednesday - Salmon, ^^
Thursday - Brats, ^^
Friday - Steak, Baked Potatoes, Sauteed Mushrooms
Sides will depend on the weather, mostly likely will be some form of salad.
On my to-do list:::
Ornaments for the Christmas in July Ornament Swap are in the mail and photo albums for the reunion are ordered. I need to get my materials organized for the crop so I can just sit down and get busy. I think working on it a little each day should take care of that.
Looking around the house:::
Vacuuming and laundry to do. I really need to come up with a weekly checklist and stick to it. One room a day plus a quick whiz over to put away any clutter should do it. I need to get back into the habit of decluttering each night before we go to bed.
From the camera:::
Two great lunches over the past week. Poulet Crepe (chicken, spinach, mushrooms, Swiss cheese with Bechamel followed by a German Crepe which was lemon juice with salted caramel (interesting combination that was so delicious, we gobbled it up before I could take a photo).
Something fun to share:::Not as much fun as informative - I signed up with Melaleuca again, any users here? Their line-up of household and personal products is awesome - environmentally and consumer safe and made in the USA. Switching over from the products I've been buying at the grocery store.
What I'm wearing today:::
Workout gear - I'm off to physical therapy.
Bible Verse, Devotional, Quote:::
When will this senseless violence end?
