Weekly Overview June 1 2016

plumbago bush

My plumbago is happy in it’s container. Such pretty blue blossoms.

Outside My Window…darkening skies and the green of spreading ornamental sweet potato vines.

 I am thinking…that a nap sound nice.

I am thankful for…mocha.

From the kitchen…mocha.

I am wearing…sandals, stretchy pants, t-shirt.

I am hoping…Kat & family arrive safely this evening.

I am readingThe King’s Curse (Cousins War Series #6), by Philippa Gregory.  

I am busy creating…still working on my seashore afghan.

I am hearingI’m Gonna Hire a Wino, by David Frizzell on Spotify.

Around the house & garden…the house is as clean as it ever gets, ready for guests.  Ditto with the outdoors, lawns mowed, gardens weeded, pool cleaned.

In other news…Bill is going to have to travel to New Orleans for a week in June.  The timing sucks.  Kat & Fiona will be here for the month, so he doesn’t want to go.  And at any other time, I’d go along with him.  I’ve never been to New Orleans!

One of my favorite things…mocha.

Our Weekly Overview… 

Monday: It was Memorial Day.  David worked, Bill had it off.  We made a trip to Lowe’s for lumber to shore up the raised bed.  And we just lazed around the rest of the day.

Tuesday: David worked, Bill worked from home, I wore myself out in the morning getting the outside in tip top shape.  Afternoon was spent getting groceries.

Wednesday: David is off, Bill is working from home, I spent time this morning with paperwork and paying work and then the final bit of housecleaning in the afternoon.  Oh, and laundry is done.

Thursday: David is off, Bill will be working from home, and I’ll be enjoying family visiting. 

Friday: David works, Bill will work from home, and I’ll be enjoying family visiting.

Saturday: & Sunday:  David works.  The weather is supposed to be nice.  Not sure what we will do, other than clean the pool.  So far it is not quite warm enough for swimming, especially if we have more rain this week.

Here is picture thought I am sharing …

3 Quick Thoughts on Saturday, March 1, 2014

  • This weekend’s plans include NASCAR watching (they are racing in Phoenix this weekend, so that means rain for us!), boxing up Fiona’s birthday items and getting them ready to ship on Monday, studying for a retake attempt for Bill, and starting the cross stitch on Liana’s birthday blanket. I have the whole month of March to get that done and I WILL NOT let myself get sidetracked with new and exciting (oh, shiny!) projects.
  • I’ve felt pretty good about what I accomplished this past week. I did finish Quicken updates, so next week I will tackle the taxes and hopefully we will learn that we will get a nice refund (but I suspect instead that we will owe). I finished Fiona’s leg warmers earlier in the week and finished the beads on Kat’s shawl while watching Cup Qualifying Friday. Thursday was my grocery day, hitting too many stores and saving 39% on my Fry’s total, which felt good. We are now stocked up with food for a good bit, other than the usual weekly run to replenish greens and celery.
  • One of the several gifts going into Miss Munchkin’s birthday shipment is a letter writing kit. I’ve included stationary with her initial at the top, note cards, postage stamps, some of my address labels (so she can stick one on a note card and not have to write out my address), and I even special ordered return address labels with her name and address on them. I have done this in the past so that she could mail me letters and she did sometimes remember to do so. I am hopeful that now that she is older and writing more, she’ll write more frequently. Everyone loves receiving notes and cards in the mail, but I like sending them almost as much as receiving. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of sending (& receiving) letters to my cousin just about as soon as either of us could write and I remember had a French pen pal when I was in grade school. With that in mind, I also bought myself some very cute note cards when I bought Fiona’s last weekend. Would you like a card from me?

What will you do be doing this weekend?
