Happy Homemaker Monday, July 20, 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
What a horribly hot and humid weekend we had. Ugh! I joked with my son this AM that this is exactly why I prefer to live where my face hurts in the winter. Bring on the cold! Today is just as bad, but storms Wed. and Thu. may cool it down a bit.

How I am feeling
I’m feeling accomplished! Saturday I got a lot of projects done that I’ve been wanting to get to. I cleaned and organized my crafting nook, and I am feeling so inspired to start some new projects!

On my mind
Wondering about school in the fall. A couple more weeks and we should know the plan here in New York State.

On the breakfast plate
Coffee & light multigrain toast with peanut butter.

On my reading pile
In the middle of reading Survivor Song, by Paul Tremblay, and it is SO GOOD. I am a huge fan of his, and so far this book is not disappointing.

On my TV
Nothing new, really! Working through Psych, and just putting on random shows or movies that catch my eye. We watched Falling Down the other night, and it’s been over 20 years since I last watched it. Did not love it as much as I used to, and really saw it through different eyes. It’s definitely disturbing that some people see Michael Douglas’s character as some kind of hero.

On the menu this week
Just a general idea. I am sure things will get switched around depending on how I feel like cooking (or not)! Going grocery shopping on Wednesday, so light on salad ingredients until then.


Monday: Orange chicken with rice and steamed veggies
Tuesday: Grilled chicken, potatoes, steamed veggies
Wednesday: Fried chicken, macaroni & cheese, green salad
Thursday: Breakfast burritos, fruit salad
Friday: Naan pizzas, green salad
Saturday: Burgers, fries, cole slaw
Sunday: Chicken Parmesan, whole wheat pasta, salad

Looking around the house
Laundry needs to be folded, sorted, and put away. Floors need a sweep & vacuum. Otherwise, we’re doing OK!

Chore I’m not looking forward to today, or this week
Gardening work in this heat! I have a lot of weeding to do and zero motivation to do it.

To relax this week, I will
Keep reading my book and work on my memory planner. I may sign up for the new Heidi Swapp class #stoptheblur. I used to be an avid scrapbooker and I am feeling the pull to get back into paper crafts.
