Good morning! This weekend has been nonstop rain (but I did get enough of a reprieve in it to go for a run last night). I reckon it's good for the garden, not so great for my migraines. But, I've persevered. Got through both girls' birthdays and now I don't have to think about birthdays again until September, with Gabe. I'm giving myself a late start and maybe I'll even get to hang out with a friend later. Let's hope! And let's get on with Happy Homemaker Monday!
The weather: Lots of rain chances. 60's and 70's. Perfection.
As I look outside my window: Cloudy but I don't think it's raining at this moment, which is great. My sinuses and head could use a break. Everything is green and thriving. My peonies are soooooo close.
Right now I am: Debating breakfast (Ella made cinnamon rolls), typing up this post, and discussing Squishmallows and how they shouldn't get wet with Goose. She wants to take her new toy to errand-run, and I'm telling her it's not a great idea.
Thinking and pondering: Planting season. Things at the B&B. The fact that laundry is neverending. Social media breaks are nice. It's a jumble, really.
Listening to: Tall Heights and Goose singing along with it. The song is "Spirit Cold". The clack of the keyboard.
How I am feeling: Good, a little tired. I guess that means more rain is on its way.
On the breakfast plate: Either a cinnamon roll or leftover rotini. I'm leaning toward the rotini, honestly. Too much sweet for breakfast tends to make me sick.
On the lunch plate: Maybe that cinnamon roll? Maybe nothing. Depends on how much I have to do at work.
On the dinner plate: Sausage, Veggies, and Rice. Maybe I'll grab an extra salad if I get to hang out with a friend.
What I'm wearing: A black and violet summer dress. I've decided I'm resurrecting the floral dress trend simply because I can.
On my reading pile: My Bible, a book on propagating plants and Gardening in the Carolinas. I need to pick a novel and maybe I'll get to do that later.
On my TV this week: Not sure. I finished "The Girl from Nowhere" and it is definitely the weirdest thing I've ever seen. I think I need a TV break to decompress. Maybe I'll create some art. Maybe I'll garden. Maybe I'll do both.
Looking around the house: It's softly lit, and it's quiet. Goose is playing quietly. My little houseplants are thriving. All is right in my little world.
On the menu:
Monday: Sausage, Veggies, and Rice
Tuesday: Turkey Stroganoff, Egg Noodles
Wednesday: Hamburger Gravy, Mashed Potatoes
Thursday: Chicken Fried Rice (of the Hamburger Helper variety)
Friday: Zuppa Toscana
Saturday: Beef tips and gravy, Roasted potatoes (or noodles)
Sunday: Chicken gnocchi skillet
To do list: This post. Some work. Laundry. Gardening.
From the camera:
Devotional: Reading today about close fellowship with Christ and it hit a nerve. I think I need to lean into devotions more, even if it means waking up earlier or shifting priorities.
Have a beautiful week!
