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 .
Temperatures are cooling down a little - low 80s with some rain and thunderstorms.
On my reading pile:::
Still working on Everyone Brave is Forgiven but since I haven't picked it up all week, this is likely to be what you will read here for a while. Diary of a Working Mum posted about the Agatha Raisin series, which I had just watched on Acorn TV, 20 books for an amazing price so I couldn't pass that one up (even though the postage from the UK was almost the same as the books)!
Worked my way through four seasons of Downton Abbey while I was scrapbooking last week. For some reason, I started with Season 3 so I guess I'll go back to 1 and 2 next time Vic is away.
On the menu for this week:::
Vic is home this week so that means I have to cook - ugh!
Monday - Roasted Veggie Meatloaf
Tuesday - Chicken something
Wednesday - Lamb something
Thursday - Steak, roasted potatoes, mushrooms
Friday - Date night - dinner and the movies
Can't you tell I'm so excited about the week ahead (insert heavy sarcasm here)?
On my to-do list:::
Vic's Career Album - while he was gone last week, I really got a lot accomplished. It should be up to date in a few days - just need to get a few newspaper articles photocopied.
Laundry, mop floors.
From the camera:::
Dinner on Sunday - Shrimp, Roasted Potatoes and Carrots, Tomato and Cucumber - 11 Smart Points was a bit high but that included the olive oil for roasting and the lemon/garlic dressing that I used to marinate the shrimp - it was really more like 8 Smart Points
3 Smart Points Caramel Cappuccino - I need to work on my barista skills
Something fun to share:::
My latest find at the gift shop - the Flint retractable lint roller - perfect for your purse
What I'm wearing today:::
Still in my pjs - off to shower and get ready to face the day (and the scales at Weight Watchers this morning)!
