Good morning everyone, and a very Happy Monday to you :)
I hope you've had a brilliant weekend and are ready for the week ahead. I'm often told that because I'm a homemaker, I really shouldn't dread the work week or Monday because it's not like I have to go to work. That in fact is true, but my husband does, and usually school is going on, so our schedule is very different from the weekend. There's early getting up, and appointments, errands, running around and all sorts of things going on.
Anyway, here's to another week, we are now almost halfway through July, unbelievable. Let's see what's going on for us all this week, shall we?
It's been nice and hot but boy have we had some intense storms here and there. Had one the other night that felt like the whole house was coming down, the lightning was non stop and I have never in my life experienced it anywhere else I've lived. We have a week of upper 90's and cloudy skies which should be pretty nice :)
Right now I am:::
As usually, drinking my coffee, waiting on a load of clothes to finish drying, watching Marley playing with his chewy bone on the ground and working on this post.
On my reading pile:::
Still working through Monticello by Sally Gunning.
Movies or Shows I watched this weekend:::
Watched a documentary on Roanoke, with the hubby. It was very interesting and it ended with them making the decision to excavate a certain site. I would love to find out what happened after that.
Watched the Amelia Earhart documentary on the History Channel and boy was that good, certainly gave a lot of food for thought.
On my TV:::
ID Discovery Channel
On the menu for this week:::
Have meals planned until Friday, but I'm working on the new menu after that.
Gnocchi Bolognese, Spaghetti and Salad
Asian Lemon Chicken Fingers, Steamed Rice
Bangers and Mash
Slow Cooker Chicken Curry with Rice
On my to do list:::
Kitchen......unload and reload dishwasher. Make more bird seed wreaths. Make cookies.
Laundry.....finish last load of clothes in the dryer and put away. One load of bed linens and comforter to wash.
House......usual vacuum, dust and tidy up.
Post Office.......mail off the book for the winner.
Crochet......start Part 8 of the Atlanticus.
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Starting Part 8 of the Atlanticus. There is also a new CAL starting on Friday, not a long one, just a cushion and I am going to take part in that one because I want to make two cushions to match my bedding.
Looking around the house:::
Floors need some attention. When it rains it's almost inevitable that with Marley going in and out to potty, my carpets get really dingy.
From the camera:::
What I'm wearing today:::
Still in my nightie, it's pretty early, so I've only managed to pull myself out of bed, and get coffee for the hubby and I. I'll be wearing a sundress later though....just a plain white, eyelet dress.
One of my simple pleasures:::
Last week I said watching documentaries, I'll just add that watching documentaries with my husband is definitely one of my simple pleasures :)
