Happy Homemaker Monday 05/11

4810327544_8de76ff062Hope all you moms had a relaxing day yesterday.  I had a nice day, but the weather was a bit ridiculous, it was in the 40’s and I was fa-reezing all day, even with my sherpa hoodie on!!  I also enjoyed spending some time with my sister, niece, and one of my older brothers as they visited with my mom.

As always Linking-up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.

THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:
Rainy, then cloudy, then sunny, then rainy…all within the span of a couple of hours.   Looks like we’ll have several rainy days this week, but it will be in the 60’s and 70’s.

ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:
Coffee with cream and a chocolate donut, though I was eyeing the leftover chocolate cake and cherry pie. #justwalkaway

CURRENTLY READING/HAVE READ:
Perfect on Paper The (mis) adventures of Waverly Bryson by Maria Murnane.  I am only half way through this one, but it is pretty funny.  Waverly gets dumped by her fiancé two weeks before her wedding.  The story starts from there.  Each chapter starts with one of her “Honey Notes”, and are throughout the book.  This is the greeting card line she would like to start one day.  Honey was the pet name that her ex called her.  The first chapter starts with the following Honey Note:  Ever felt like spending the rest of your life in bed?  Honey, get that sleep.  Eventually you’ll wake up, and just think how nice your skin will look when you do.  There are four books in the series so far.

ON THE TV TODAY:
The Voice, The Good Wife, and Castle.  Last night was the Good Wife’s season finale, I thought it was last week.

THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY:
My daughter (she’s 19) posted this to my FB page for Mother’s Day…absolutely made my day!!

Happy mother’s day to the coolest mom 🙂 I love our friendship and how silly we can be! I hope you have great mother’s day! Love you ♥

ON THE MENU THIS WEEK:
Still have to prepare it and go grocery shopping.

NEW RECIPE I TRIED OR WANT TO TRY THIS WEEK:
I did try the Roasted Turkey Breast, and it turned out really good.  I made mine on a bed of veggies.  Very Good.  Thanks for sharing Carrie!!

LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS WEEK:
I should be getting my new glasses this week.  I have needed new ones for awhile now, but last year I opted for the bifocal contacts (best.invention.EVER), can’t wait to see things clearly again.

Also this weekend, is the Battin’ for Boobies Softball Tournament.  Our town has all kinds of Paint the Town Pink events in the month of May to raise money for Breast Cancer.  The teams playing in the softball game are one of the local businesses against the Guns & Hoses Team (the Police and Fire Department).  Then there are the Alumni teams from the two rival high schools.  Should be good fun for a good cause.

MY FAVORITE BLOG POST THIS WEEK:
This was one of the best Mother’s Day tributes I read over the weekend from The Belle Jar, if you get time, you can read it here.

      • Thanks, Carrie Ann! It’s completely understandable. We all have those weeks. You can start thinking on next week: loop. 🙂 I am so far behind on some stuff! That battle is really very time consuming.

  2. Reading your post reminds me…how many weeks ago did I say I was going to get new glasses? I still have not found time. We have the cooler weather as well. I’m making chili for dinner and that is not something I’d ever normally cook in May. Hope you have a great week and that it warms up for both of us!

    • LOL…I know what you mean about the chili…definitely a October kinda dinner. It has to warm up soon. Hope you can make time soon to get your new glasses, I put it off for too long as well, everything is going to look like it’s in HD when I get mine LOL. Have a wonderful week!!
