Hope you all had a nice Easter! I will post a recap of ours later. Let’s get right to Happy Homemaker Monday, where I am linking up with Sandra at Diary of a SAHM.
Today it’s raining and the wind is howling and gusty. It would be a good day to relax with books and movies, if I didn’t have so much work to do. Guess spring is still not arriving in New York. The weather, quite frankly, sucks. I’m really tired of the cold.
How I am feeling today
Tired. Laura’s alarm clock must have been accidentally set last night because it started beeping like crazy shortly after midnight. Nothing like waking up in the middle of the night to a loud noise you weren’t expecting!
On my mind
Wondering if/when the kids will be able to return to school before the year is over, what will happen with graduation… Lots of work-related stuff, too.
On the breakfast plate
You guessed it, PB toast and coffee! I am a creature of habit (or perhaps laziness in the morning)… what can I say?
On my reading pile
Nothing at the moment. My mind just can’t focus on a book right now.
On my tv
Twi Peaks Season 2 (Netflix – rewatching it for the umpteenth time in honor of the 30th anniversary and my teens are totally addicted!)
Monk (Amazon Prime – I forgot how great this show is!)
Young Sheldon Season 2 (DVD)
On the menu this week
The last time I was grocery shopping was Sunday the 5th, and this is the longest I’ve gone between trips in quite some time. When things were normal, I’d do one big shop and then a smaller “fill-in” for more fresh vegetables. I have to say, I am really missing lots of nice, fresh salads. Anyway, my menu is subject to (and likely to) change. I’m hoping I can put off grocery shopping until Friday morning. Not the best time because I think the stores have less stock at the end of the week, but… I want to go as long as possible.
Monday – Chicken korma, cauliflower rice
Tuesday – Pork chops with sweet & hot peppers, steamed broccoli
Wednesday – Chicken & black bean quesadillas
Thursday – Maybe take-out tonight?
Friday – Chili & cornbread, salad
Saturday – Burgers & fries, cole slaw
Sunday – Western quiche (ham, onions, peppers, tomatoes), salad
From the camera
My forsythia bushes are so vibrant this year! I’m enjoying seeing them out the window.
Looking around the house
Nothing is too out of order, just a bit of tidying up to do.
Chore I’m not looking forward to today, or this week
Laundry. I have so much to fold and make sure gets put away.
To relax this week, I will…
Watch TV, crochet, maybe catch up on my memory planner
