Happy Homemaker Monday, July 27, 2020

The last Monday in July! Can you believe it? A month from now it will only be four of us here — Jake will be moved into his college dorm. It will be so strange, and I’m trying not to think about it… at least for the time being.

On Saturday we went shopping for some basic dorm and college supplies. Still have a few things to get but we are set for the most part. Now it’s going to be on to washing and organizing and packing everything up in a way that makes sense.

I can’t believe I’m actually getting this post up in the morning… so proud of myself, LOL! Anyway, let’s link up with Sandra at Diary of a SAHM. Happy Monday!

The Weather…
It’s comfortable out now, but as I type it’s only 6:13 AM. Supposed to be horribly hot today. In fact the National Weather Service has put out a Heat Advisory. Not much else to say there!

How I am feeling…
Stressed about Jake finishing his Eagle project in time. The 18th birthday is in a few weeks and he still has a few things to finish up, as well as completing the paper work. I’ll be so glad when this is behind us.

On my mind…
We are thinking of adopting another cat! We have two cats, sisters, who are 7 and since before last Christmas we’ve been talking about getting another one. Yesterday Drew and Laura fell in love with one, so I am hoping to run over and see her today.

On the breakfast plate…
Not sure yet. I have just had a cup of tea. I am really hungry this morning, so I may make some scrambled eggs.

On my reading pile…
Haven’t done much reading in the last week, so I am still working through Survivor Song.

currently reading: survivor song

On my TV…
Norsemen Season 3 (Netflix)
Psych reruns (Amazon Prime)

On the menu this week…
Monday: Rotisserie Chicken (grab at Sam’s Club while out), crunchy kale salad, leftover macaroni & cheese
Tuesday: Chicken Verde Tacos (slow cooker)
Wednesday: Breakfast for dinner – Scrambled eggs, bacon, hash browns, fruit salad
Thursday: American Chop Suey, garden salad
Friday: ??? I have to work an evening program for the library. Maybe pizza
Saturday: Sausage & peppers with roasted potatoes, broccoli

From the camera…
The Blinded Sphinx moths we saw on our shed.

Looking around the house…
The floors need a good sweep & vacuum and I have 3 baskets of laundry to fold, sort, and have everyone put away. I also have a large stack of paperwork in my basket that I really need to sort through and organize.

Chore I’m not looking forward to today, or this week…
Laundry! Just tired of it.

To relax this week, I will…
Work on my memory planner. I am several months behind, and I really want to catch up and start sharing my layouts! When the boys were babies I was an avid scrapbooker and lately I find myself missing it so much.

Well, I am going to make a cup of coffee and get started with my day. Stay cool, everyone. Hope you all have a nice week!

  1. Just put a hold on Survivor Song at our library (well, the e-book edition). Those moths are so neat looking. Hope you are having a fantastic week so far!
