I hope you had a lovely past weekend. I feel all messed up with my week already, as we had a nice long 3 day weekend with Memorial Day. So today feels like a Monday, not a Tuesday. Memorial weekend is always a wonderful time to stop and reflect on the wonderful men and women of the military that have served our country. Past and present. I continue to be so proud of my baby brother Steven. He has been in the military his whole adult life and is a medic in the green beret special forces. God bless all of our military people and their families for the sacrifices they make!! xo
I thought since yesterday was basically a day off for reflection and fun time too - I would do a mini version of Happy Homemaker Monday today - since it feels like Monday to me. Lol
First of all I was late getting to this post as we went and toured a facility that could potentially be where we would have my MIL move in the near future. It was a really good visit and very lovely place. I think my FIL was impressed too -which is a wonderful. It was a beautiful place, as well as it seemed they had wonderful staff! Fingers crossed we will all find peace in a plan that will be healthy for everybody... and find it soon.
Next I thought I'd give a mini version of a weekly update - like HHM:
*THE WEATHER TODAY: unfortunately windy and rainy. At least it was nice for most of yesterday for Memorial Day. I see puddles in my driveway as I look out my office window. I'm sipping my water and listening to some praise and worship on pandora.
*ON THE MENU THIS WEEK:
Monday - BBQ leftovers
Tuesday - hasbrown and ham & cheese breakfast pizza and mini pancakes, fruit
Wednesday - sandwich roll-ups, french fries, salad, fruit
Thursday - get groceries -maybe tacos?
Friday - leftover tacos or out for dinner
SHOWS: I was able to catch up on Outlander and Game of Thrones. I still have some cooking shows taped. I see America's Got Talent will be starting back this week. That's always a fun one we watch as a family.
READING: I'm not sure what I want to read next. I have several books written down my friend Carrie from Anniehow has recommended. However, I kind of want to read You Before Me as well. I've had that on my list and I see they've now made a movie out of it.
FROM THE CAMERA:
I'm loving all of my baskets and blooms this year!
We had some nice - just chillin' time too. ;)
I made a very tasty triple berry cobbler & ice cream for dessert for yesteradays BBQ. I'll share the recipe soon!
There were some badminton games on the hill.
And we were able to get our pontoon ride in before the rain!
We need to get Ruby a captain's hat, as she is queen of the pontoon when we go! She loves it so much - it's just pretty darn adorable.
We spotted a bald eagle on our trip.
And some Mommy & Daddy geese with their babies.
