Happy Monday my Friends! Sorry I'm SO late today but I have a VERY good reason. I spent the day on a road trip with my Mom and Annie picking up my Mom's new puppy!! Her name is Angel and she's beyond adorable!
See what I mean?
It was a busy weekend away at soccer tourneys for both kiddos. So it's been a busy 4 days! I'm behind in coming by to say hello to all of you dear Friends, and I didn't even get to do my 5 on Friday, but now life will slow down for a while again so i'll be able to post more. For now - on to the week ahead!
THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:
It was a sunny and pleasant day in the upper 50's to lower 60's.
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:
We grabbed a treat this AM before hitting the road. So I actually had an iced chai tea and 1/2 a bagel with veggie cream cheese.
AS I LOOK OUTSIDE MY WINDOW:
It's sunny with pretty big white clouds. We had a tiny drizzle a bit ago that passed right over.
RIGHT NOW I AM:
In my office, sipping on some water and petting my Ruby. She missed me all day. Thinking about what I'm going to make for dinner. Listening to some Enya while I work on this post - an texting my hubby back and forth. ;)
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE:
Still suitcase and clothes by the laundry room with more of that to catch up on. Otherwise pretty tidy from when Mom stayed here for us over the weekend.
ON TODAY'S TO DO LIST:
Well the day is at it's end for me - so going to through in more laundry and make dinner. Then we may go back to my Mom's so my son can see the puppy too! He'll drive as he has his permit to practice, always a little nerve wracking but he's so excited to be driving!! Lol
A bunch of my magazines came in for the month so I've been gobbling them up lately.
ON THE TV TODAY:
I was able to watch Call the Midwife, but was too tired after the long weekend to catch up on anything else. I have Amazing Race, Game of Thrones, and Outlander to catch up on yet. Plus I think my hubby still has a Bering Sea Gold show to catch up on from last week.
ON THE MENU THIS WEEK:
MONDAY: not sure but I know I have eggs to use up - so something breakfast for dinner I guess.
TUESDAY: some kind of meat & potatoes for the in-law's (need to get groceries)
WEDNESDAY: chicken and maybe fish on the grill
THURSDAY:chicken salad wrap sandwiches, corn on the cob & veggies off the grill, melon
FRIDAY:Annie's sleepover bday party with her friends so pizza for them and may make mini pancakes in my mini muffin pan for the AM for them with a variety of toppings
WHAT I AM CREATING AT THE MOMENT:
I need to finish up the gift scrapbook album I'm working on - I've been ignoring it lately and I don't want to leave it to the last minute...so it's moved up in priority. (yep still this)
NEW RECIPE I WANT TO TRY THIS WEEK:
Not sure as still really figuring out grocery list. Will hope to share my MIL's toffee bars if I finally make them this week!
TIP OF THE WEEK:
Courtesy of the site 1000lifehacks again. Great tip for summer fun to come soon!
FROM THE CAMERA:
It was so cold one AM at my kiddos soccer that I had on many layers, my winter coat, hat, hood, mittens and blanket & I still froze! (20 degrees with windchill at 7:30 AM game - BRRR)
Annie in action! (red with the soccer ball facing camera)
Annie's team - can you see the layers on the coaches. It was so cold Saturday!
My son is action doing a throw-in (#49) at his game.
And I couldn't resist more Angel puppy photos - my Mom is one happy Lady! ;)
