Well, it’s been a while since I participated in HHM, so I thought I would go ahead today. I’ve pretty much caught up with my to-do list, made a batch of black bean and orzo salad this week, made some cretons, and dinner is prepped.
It’s kind of cloudy out there now, but the sun occasionaly breaks through. It’s not warm, but not cool — kind of an odd in-between. Sadly, it looks like we are in for a cooler week, and I am especially unhappy about that because I wanted to have Laura’s First Communion party outside on Saturday, but I’m not sure that will happen.
On my reading pile:::
I’ve got two books to start. I’ve been on the waiting this forever for these, and of course they arrive during a super busy time!
Movies or Shows I watched this weekend:::
Drew and I finished “Better Call Saul” last night and it was soooo good.
On my TV:::
The Seven Five (want to watch)
Ruby Ridge (want to watch)
On the menu for this week:::
So pleased that I actually DID make up a meal plan this week AND last week.
Grilled burgers, french fries & onion rings, mixed veggies
Roasted chicken drumsticks, rice, salad
BBQ Pork chops, egg noodles, broccoli
Meatball grinders, chips, carrot sticks and cucumber slices
Cinco de Mayo! We are having chicken fajitas.
On my to do list:::
– Cleaning & prep for the party on Saturday
– Finish Laura’s veil, make sure everything is ironed and ready to wear
– Wrap gift
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
I feel like I’ve lost my crafting mojo. I want to crochet, but I’m really not sure what to make. So I’ve just been reorganizing all my patterns, trying to find some inspiration. There are a million projects I want to start (cocoon sweater, Open Air Market Scarf, finish up any one of my UFOs… I just can’t commit for some reason. All else fails, there are always dishcloths, just to keep my hands busy. I think I may start one tonight and see if I can get inspired.
Looking around the house:::
Things are not too bad around the house because I’ve been trying to keep things under control. I don’t have a lot of extra time this week and I don’t want to freak out over the house not being ready for Saturday.
From the camera:::
What I’m wearing today:::
Jeans and a tee-shirt. Pretty standard!
One of my simple pleasure:::
Seeing flowers start to bloom. It is amazing to me that these plants keep coming back, no matter how hard the winter. (Something to think about, I suppose). I was also really happy to see new baby growth on my lavender plant. This is, I think, the third year that I’ve had it! Maybe I’ll get another one — or maybe I shouldn’t press my luck 😉
