Happy Homemaker Monday // July 8, 2019

Ah well… I didn’t manage to write this weekend, but honestly I was so busy that I really didn’t have a lot of time. It was a great weekend, though. The big exciting news is that I was appointed Library Director! I met with a few Board members Tuesday night and was offered the job and then on Saturday they had a meeting and officially appointed me. I celebrated on Sat. night by going out to dinner with a friend I haven’t seen in months, then Sunday was all about taking care of grocery shopping and chores.

Today was my first day in my new role so I am just now getting around to blogging. I actually had to head out super early this AM to drop off my car at the dealership to have some work done, so between that and a full day at work I am so ready to wind down!

As usual, I am linking up with Sandra at Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday.

Today was beautiful, but it is going to get nasty and hot again. I’m over the summer weather, let me tell you.

On the breakfast plate this morning:::
I didn’t have time to eat this morning, so I just grabbed a latte on the way from the dealership to work

Right now I am:::
Listening to Laura sing in the shower

On my bedside table:::
Same junk as last week!

On my reading pile:::
Still reading Midnight in Chernobyl

Movies or Shows I watched this weekend:::
Nothing really of note

On my TV this week:::Stranger Things

On the menu for this week:::
Monday: Burgers & Fries
Tuesday: Zuppa toscana, salad
Wednesday: Grilled Greek chicken, lemon herb quinoa & brown rice, zucchini
Thursday: Something in the Crock Pot
Friday: ??? I won’t be home, so Drew will come up with something
Saturday: Chicken fajitas

On my to do list:::– Print out new insurance cards
– Laura’s physical
– Clean bedrooms

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
I started knitting that shawl this weekend and I’m having the hardest time with it, so I ripped it all back and I need to take a step back before I pick it up again.

Looking forward to:::
Seeing my friends on Sunday afternoon for drinks and appetizers!

Looking around the house:::
Gotta do the dinner dishes. Gotta put the laundry away. Everything is kind of a mess, but that’s OK — I’ll get used to my new schedule and get back on track. 

From the camera:::
4th of July fireworks

What I’m wearing today:::
Skinny jeans, leopard print ballet flats, and a new tiered button top. I bought this one in yellow yesterday and I got so many compliments on it! I love the mustard yellow color!

One of my simple pleasures:::
An empty, clean sink when I go to bed (which is even better when I wake up in the morning and it’s still empty & clean!

    I LOVE your top, it's beautiful and yes, the yellow mustard is gorgeous.

    As for the summer heat, girl I'm struggling, I think it's our age but I'm really not handling heat anymore LOL

    Have a wonderful week!

  4. Thanks so much Sandra! And yes – I think age DEFINITELY has something to do with not tolerating the heat well!

  5. Congrats on the new job, sounds exciting!

    I've had crochet projects like that, where I just can't seem to get it right. Stepping away for a bit is usually the perfect answer.

    Hope you're having a wonderful week.
