Happy Homemaker Monday
Chilly and rainy. It's 40 degrees and raining as I type this and it's only supposed to get a little warmer throughout the day.
On my reading pile:::
I just finished Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella last night in bed. Today I'm starting Th1rteen R3asons Why by Jay Asher. I haven't seen the Netflix show yet, as I decided to wait until after the book. Suicide is a super sensitive subject to me, so I'm not sure how far I will actually make it in the book or show, but I'm going to give it a try.
Movies or Shows I watched this weekend:::
I finished the latest season of Grace and Frankie and have been watching The Fall on Netflix. It's successfully giving me the Heebie Jebbies. I also watched the latest Grey's Anatomy.
Call the Midwife
Doctor WhoThe Fall
On the menu for this week:::
Garbage burritos (breakfast burritos filled with sausage, eggs, cheese, and hash browns)
Spaghetti and garlic breadThursday
Grilled Cheese, tomato soup, apple sauce, and baked beansFriday
On my to do list:::
Monday - Shawn's on a field trip with Sydney today. I've got a load or so of laundry to do and some floors to clean. The groceries will be here in another hour or 2. Tonight, Sydney and Rylie have dance, Ben has his clay class, and Sydney has soccer practice.
Tuesday - Picking up the house and the usual upkeep. Maybe organizing my closet if the time allows. Kids clean their rooms. In the evening, Ben has soccer practice.
Wednesday - Usual household chores, organizing the closet if I didn't get to it Tuesday. The big kids have marathon club after school and Ben has his drawing and painting class in the evening.
Thursday - The firefighters are coming to Rylie's preschool, so I'll probably stick around for that and let Scottie see too. In the evening, Ben has soccer practice.
Friday - Ben's history field trip. Shawn will be chaperoning that one as well. I need to turn in some baked good for the cakewalk during the school carnival.
Saturday - Ben, Sydney, and Rylie's soccer games, Sydney's soccer team cookout, and the school carnival.
Sunday - Power washing the deck and replacing a few parts.
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
I've not really been creating anything lately. Just working working working.
Looking around the house:::
It doesn't look too bad. The kids' rooms are trashed and I need to make my bed but other than that, it's not too shabby. The girls are playing nicely in their room, and for this minute they are getting along. Lord knows, it hasn't been that way all morning, and it probably won't continue long, so I need to crack on with anything that needs doing before they need my attention again.
We live in such a beautiful artistic and embracing city. We love to go on walks and look for some of the gorgeous art. Last week, Rylie had the class bear and we took it downtown. While Ben and Shawn were getting their haircuts, the girls and I found this beautiful wall.
What I'm wearing today:::
I have on a pair of jeggings, a black tank top, and a cowl neck type sweatshirt. When I was taking Ben and Sydney to school this morning, I wore my rain boots, as everything is soaking wet out.
One of my simple pleasures:::
Blaring my music in the kitchen, singing and dancing, while I cook or do dishes. It's one of my absolute favorite things.
