Happy Homemaker Monday, July 13, 2020

It’s Monday again! How on earth did that happen? Again, I was up extremely early so I am dog-tired. Plus, we had a really busy weekend getting ready to have family over and then hosting our small graduation party yesterday. I have a busy week ahead, and I’m already looking forward to the weekend, LOL!

Let’s link up with Sandra at Diary of a SAHM, shall we?

The Weather
Still hot, though today is somewhat tolerable. It’s supposed to get down to 59 tonight which is absolutely dreamy! I’m opening all the windows to get that cool, fresh air in! The week ahead is typical Northeastern summer: hot & humid.

How I am feeling
Starting to feel sad about Jake leaving for school next month. Yup, total pity party over here. I think the fact that he’s been home just about constantly since March is making it harder. We had a little graduation party yesterday and now that it’s over, that last big high school party, reality has hit.

On my mind
I need to follow up about some scholarships and awards. Also, hoping it doesn’t rain Friday night. We are able to hold our summer concerts at the library, but only if they are outside. I know the community really needs some kind of event, so I am praying for no thunderstorms!

On the breakfast plate
Rye toast with strawberry jam (mixing it up this week like a crazy woman, LOL) and a cup of coffee.

On my reading pile
The new Paul Tremblay book, Survivor Song, came in today and I cannot wait to start reading it!!!

On my TV
Finished the new Unsolved Mysteries and it was… okay. I enjoyed the one about the Berkshire UFO sightings because they happened not too far away. I do feel like some of the episodes were dragged out a bit. One of the things I love about the original series is that there were several different stories in one single episode. Laura and I also watched the new Baby-Sitters Club show and we both loved it! They did a great job.

Other than that, just continuing with Psych, and seeing what else catches my eye.

On the menu this week
Not feeling too inspired. I kind of have no idea, but maybe something like this…

Monday: Coconut shrimp and leftover steak, long grain & wild rice, steamed veggies
Tuesday: Grilled chicken, steamed veggies, salad
Wednesday: Hamburgers, waffle fries, cole slaw
Thursday: Crock Pot meatballs & sausage, pasta, steamed broccoli
Friday: ? I’m working a library program in the evening, so… pizza?
Saturday: BBQ pork chops, mac & cheese, cole slaw
Sunday: Chili dogs/chili, fries, salad

Looking around the house
I took Friday off last week so I could really clean the house and do some rearranging so honestly most rooms looks good. There is laundry (of course right?), and I do need to seriously clean out my craft area.

Chore I’m not looking forward to today, or this week
Same as last week since we never got around to it: We have an old TV upstairs that needs to come downstairs and get thrown away and it’s is big and unwieldy and I know it is going to a real ordeal. But at the same time I really want to get it done!

To relax this week, I will
I think this week I want to focus on reading. I have so many books to get through, and I need to stop scrolling on my phone before bed and get back into the habit of reading befor bed. Also, I’m working on some very simple cotton mats to go under candles, plants, etc. Not exactly doilies, but not exactly dishcloths.

On my prayer list
Thinking of someone I know who I just found out is really sick.

Hope you all have a nice week!
