Happy June! I can't believe it's officially the month of summer already. But I'm ready to dig in and enjoy it!! It's going to be a busy week as both my kiddos are in the home stretch and this is their last week of school. It's going to be a week filled with activity including that large carnival I told you about earlier that has been consuming my world lately!! Lol. It's a lot of work but I truly love it and we all look forward to it every year. However, I won't mind giving up the "worrying about it" part once it's over. But let's focus on today.
THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:
A little chilly (probably upper 40's) but supposed to get up into the 50's. It's bright and sunny though so that always helps on a Monday! And it's not raining which is amazing. It has rained every Monday for weeks and I know as my hubby & I couldn't golf in our league (which is on Monday's). However, our friends decided to brave it with us last week and we did golf in the cold drizzle. I will look much more forward to it tonight!
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:
Whole wheat toast with peanut butter and honey, cantaloupe, and iced coffee.
AS I LOOK OUTSIDE MY WINDOW:
I'm enjoying the beautiful sunshine!! All of my flowers are looking so great too, I could gaze out at them and the water for hours.
RIGHT NOW I AM:
Listening to my daughter practice her piano while I type this - I guess she decided to jump right into her Monday. I need to bring her to school soon and then go pick up my MIL. I often do this post in stages. I start it first thing in the AM, then go pick up my MIL and finish when I get back. Or sometimes I don't even start it until I've gone and picked her up first. It just depends on how early I've started my morning. I need to work on my grocery list yet too, so starting to think about what I'm going to make this week.
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE:
Need to throw a few dishes in the dishwasher. I think I'll make some brownies to have around as a treat a bit this week. I need to load next load of laundry too. Otherwise, still pretty tidy from the past weekend. We had Annie's friends over after we took them all to a movie and it remained pretty tidy around here. Lol The sun is coming through the trees and making pretty ripples of light through my curtain in my office. Love that.
ON TODAY'S TO DO LIST:
Go grab groceries with my MIL, water my flowers and veggies with her (she loves seeing all the flowers), play with Ruby on the back hill, bake brownies. Good Monday stuff.
Nothing really new here but stay tuned!
ON THE TV TODAY:
Some cooking shows but not a whole lot taped right now. I'm glad too, it's the time of year to be outside more.
ON THE MENU THIS WEEK:
I think I'm going to do crock pot ribs with sides one day, spaghetti hot dish another day (in-law's meals). Then maybe chicken on the grill another night. Still figuring out what I want to make, but that's a general idea. I've been craving s'more's so may have to have those after a meal this week! Mmmmm
WHAT I AM CREATING AT THE MOMENT:
Mainly some scrapbooking and I'm excited about a project I've had on the back burner for quite a while and will finally jump into this summer. So will see how it goes and I'll keep you posted!
NEW RECIPE I WANT TO TRY THIS WEEK:
Nothing new I'm planning as of now.
TIP OF THE WEEK:
I saw this (I can't remember where) and thought it was a great idea! Take an old pop top container (like the kind I have my antibacterial wipes in to wipe down counters etc) and take off label and cover with pretty paper or card stock. Then put all your plastic bags left over from Target or stores like that -which we always keep and reuse on top of each other. So place one on the counter then another on top of it but towards the bottom of it and make a whole line up of bags. Then roll them all up and place them in your pop top container and you can pull them up one at a time as you need them. Contained all pretty but handy!
