Happy Homemaker Monday
It's been so hot... I don't like the temperatures in the 100s. I'm definitely over the heat but I think it's only supposed to get to 90 degrees or so today.
Sitting in the kitchen at the counter typing up this post. The kids are all downstairs in the living room watching Raven's House. The girls have seen it several times, but this is Ben's first time watching it.
I'm currently reading After You by Jojo Moyes. I read Me Before You last week and am cruising through this one. I have The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware lined up to read next.
The girls and I watched Descendants 2 and Raven's House on Friday night. Shawn and I watched Game of Thrones last night. Other than that we didn't watch a whole lot.
This week is Shark week so we have lots of Discovery channel on.
I'm wanting to start Ozark this week
I need to finish this season of The Ranch.
Beef and Broccoli with Rice
Fettuccini Alfredo with homemade bread
Bangers and mash with green veggies
May grab something as Shawn has a softball tournament
Taco Soup with corn chips
At my nephew's birthday party
Kitchen......Pick up kitchen counters (Ben will keep up on dishes and Sydney will do the floor.)
Laundry.....Fold the laundry and wash the one load.
House...... (Ben will wipe down bathrooms, Sydney will vacuum living rooms and Rylie will dust.)
Kids doing chores has been amazing!
I haven't done much of anything lately. Ben wants to get into Cosplay a little bit, so I may start looking into how to make his costumes. I'd also like to jump back into my crochet blanket.
It's really quite clean. We've been doing well at keeping it clean with the kids helping out.
Since my birthday is during the summer when the kids aren't at school, we like to celebrate my birthday away from home. If we were at home, I'd spend the day doing housework as well mommies and wives tend to do. Usually we are away on vacation but this year we repaired and painted our back deck which left little money for a big vacation so we decided to do a couple of day trips. We decided to see things here in Kansas we've never seen before. We went to the Cosmosphere in Hutchinson, the Wizard of Oz museum in Wamego, and the Dwight D Eisenhower museum, library and childhood home.
I'm wearing a pair of denim shorts and my courage t-shirt I got at the Wizard of Oz museum. For the moment we are just around the house so I'm also wearing my sparkly ruby red house slippers.
Sitting outside watching the birds eat from their feeder and splash around in the bird bath the kids and I made for Shawn for father's day.
