Happy Homemaker Monday, October 10, 2020

Happy fall! Happy October! Today I decided to work on this post during my lunch break. It’s been hard to motivate to blog these days, but October always has me in the mood for projects, so this is one of them. 

Anyway, let’s link up with Sandra at Diary of a SAHM

The Weather… It’s cold, gray, and wet out today. If I wasn’t stuck at work it would be the perfect day for tea, movies, books, crochet… all those cozy things! Looks like a decent week ahead weather-wise. I’m not complaining!

How I am feeling… I am so tired today. I think everyone I know is feeling tired, stressed, anxious… I also have my annual work evaluation tomorrow and while I know it will be fine I can’t help but be a little nervous about that as well.

 

On my mind… Already thinking about the holidays and what that may look like. I’m coming up with a couple different plans because who knows what things will be like in November and December. I’m trying to have a good attitude about it, though, and I’m determined to make the best of it no matter what we are faced with.

 

On the breakfast plate… Breakfast is long gone! I made a ham, egg & cheese breakfast sandwich on an English muffin. Work lunch was a burrito bowl with leftovers from last night.

 

On my reading pile… Nothing at the moment, though I have the Andrew Cuomo book sitting on my desk (it’s release date is tomorrow), so I may take that home to preview.

On my TV… Last week I bingewatched the newest season of Wentworth, and I also watched American Murder: The Family Next Door. Other than that I am watching Cold Case Files and eager to start The Haunting of Bly Manor, all on Netflix.

 

On the menu this week…
Monday: Chicken & chickpea curry, cauliflower rice, naan
Tuesday: Beef Stew (slow cooker), cheddar & garlic biscuits
Wednesday: BBQ riblets, macaroni & cheese, salad
Thursday: Jerk chicken drumsticks, red beans & rice, salad
Friday:  ?
Saturday:  ?

 

From the camera… Sadly, I have not been taking many photos. I should remedy that before all the leaves fall! The colors here in the Hudson Valley have been stunning this year!

 

Looking around the house… It’s a mess. I’ll just be honest about that, LOL! 

 

Chore I’m not looking forward to today, or this week… All of it! Just being honest about that too, LOL!

 

To relax this week, I will… Truthfully, if I can get my house clean I will feel relaxed and then feel like I can start a new project. I have a ton of this putty-colored yarn (not quite gray, not quite cream), and I want to make a new blanket for the couch in the living room. I am off on Wednesday (as usual), and because of the holiday today, my kids are off from school and will attend Tue-Wed instead of Mon-Tue, so I want to use that time in the morning to really tidy up. That way, when I have my vacation day of Friday I can feel free to actually take it easy! That’s the plan at least.   Well, I guess that is about it! Wishing you a great week!

  1. Good to see you back in blog land. I know the feeling though, I have had to force myself to sit down and just get posts up. It’s hard to have the motivation but I always remind myself that if I don’t do it I’ll regret it down the line lol

    Your menu looks yummy.

    I’m sure your evaluation will go just fine, but I understanding feeling nervous. Hope you get to relax the rest of the week 🙂

  2. I think we’re all feeling a bit like that – so many things up in the air and on hold during this trying time. I hope you get your leaf pictures while you can. Have a WONDERFUL week.

  3. I’m with you with the rainy days! the are perfect to just cozy up in the house, one of the reasons I like Fall so much… that and the beautiful colors, cooler weather, apples, pumpkins,,,,… ahhhh Fall!
