Happy Homemaker Monday


Linking up at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom today.

As I look outside my window:::

The wind is blowing like crazy, and it’s going to be a hot one, getting hotter each day.

Right now I am:::

Planning the next segment of my front garden.

Thinking and pondering:::

Thoughts that others consider odd; such as, why is it ok for girls to dress like boys but not boys to dress like girls? 😀

On my bedside table:::

A huge mess. I think I’ll clean it up this week since there’s a good chance I won’t work (here, or at the farm, or at the school) because of the wind.

On my tv this week:::

Castle. Yep, that’s all. Tried to get into a couple other shows this year, thinking that since Castle was so good there must be hope for Hollywood. I was wrong. Castle is a fluke. A really, really awesome fluke. 😀

Listening to:::

Castle Season 1 Playlist on Spotify (Oh, it must be Monday.)

On the menu for this week:::

Oh, am I supposed to cook? Well, aside from cupcakes, I suppose I’ll try to make some spaghetti, maybe some tacos. I don’t know. I’ve been in a funk as far as cooking goes lately. We’ll see.

On my to do list:::

Well, there was a lot of fun stuff, then the winds came back. Gardening in the wind is not fun, or even practical, so that has to be put on hold for now. I guess I’ll clean house. Maybe I’ll buy some houseplants to perk me up. 🙂

Happening this week:::

BC’s last day of his old preschool. He’s been in the Monday afternoon class since he started SDC through the public school, but next year it will conflict with PS Kindy so this is our last day ever with Miss Traccee. 😦

What I am creating:::

Cupcakes for the last day of Miss Traccee’s class.

My simple pleasure:::

Writing. Is that simple?

Homemaking tips:::

If you have a ton of kids and only one bath/shower, put up an extra shower curtain rod and hang an extra shower caddy so that everyone’s soaps fit inside, instead of on the ledge of the tub. Or are we the only family that has so many different allergies that everyone has their own soaps? 😀

Looking around the house:::

Wow, it’s a mess. Maybe I really will clean this week while I can’t work outside.

From the camera:::

One of my fave pics from yesterday. BC and Braniac. 🙂
Prayer List:::

Having a real problem re-adjusting to city life after taking the kids up to SLO three weeks ago. I thought I had acclimated, after 25 years here, but I am miserable. :/

Bible verse, Devotional:::

    Really enjoyed reading your list 🙂 Welcome to my Happy Homemaker Monday!!!

    I know all about not being able to adjust to where you live, it’s not an easy thing to live with. Will be praying for you 🙂
