Weekly Overview May 15 2016

view from my window

Outside My Window… It’s a rainy morning, but I can see bright yellow flowers in my front flower bed, pink impatience in a container near the front door, and my Texas Star Hibiscus right out the window.  I can’t wait until it produces big red blooms!

I am thinking… About my mom, who lost her friend and companion of six years yesterday.  He was a lovely man and they had some very good times.  He will be missed.

I am thankful for… Rain!  I won’t have to water plants outside today.

From the kitchen… I heard David making espresso and microwaving breakfast.

I am wearing … A purple t-shirt (with a sparkly butterfly embroidered on it), blue jeans, turquoise Sketcher loafers, white socks (inside out).  No bling yet – soon, though, as I need to run to town for groceries this morning.

I am hoping… My Texas Star Hibiscus takes good root in the front flowerbed.  I added a good bit of compost, since the original soil there can only be very loosely called soil.

I am reading… I just finished The Kingmaker’s Daughter, by Philippa Gregory.  Also still reading The Rosetta Key, by William Dietrich and The End of Diabetes, by Joel Fuhrman, M.D.

I am busy creating… Still crocheting my afghan and creating outside gardens.

I am hearing… High Time by Kacey Musgraves on Spotify in my earbuds and a instructional video that Bill is watching at his computer next to me.
heating the pool
Around the house & garden…  We completed the “heat the pool relatively inexpensively” project this weekend.  Lots of black tubing running along the length of fence that gets the most sunshine, along with a circulating pump to move the pool water through the tubing.  Now we just need warm weather and sunshine, neither of which is in the forecast this week.

In other news… I crossed of several more things on the Gardening To Do List.  I’ll post an update later this week.

One of my favorite things… Lists.  I like making lists.  To Do Lists.  Books Read Lists.  Birthdates lists.  Names lists.  I’ll confess, I’m a list maker.

Our Weekly Overview… 

Monday: This morning I’ll be making a grocery run.  Then this afternoon I need to spend some time cleaning up papers & receipts that are scattered all over my office table.  And make a phone call to an Alabama realtor.  Bill is working from home all week.  David works all week and will have the weekend off.  He gets every third weekend off.

Tuesday: I’ll be working on paying bills, since it’s a pay day, and also continuing the quest to keep Quicken up to date.  We’re supposed to have rain most of the week, so I doubt I will be getting much gardening done.

Wednesday: Probably more Quicken & office paper work and then, hopefully, some housecleaning.  It is desperately needed.

Thursday:  More housecleaning?

Friday: Homeschool chat and whatever is left to finish up before the weekend.

Saturday: & Sunday:  No plans, other than yard work, pool cleaning, depending upon the weather.  And also NASCAR watching.

Here is picture thought I am sharing ..

pink daylily

My lilies are blooming quite nicely.  Most of them so far are bright yellow, but this pink one is especially lovely.
