Weather in My Neck of the Woods
As I look out my livingroom window at the evergreens, it's steadily raining. A cool breeze comes in through the opened window. A perfect day for baking, for reading, for crocheting, for napping.
In the Garden
Our pole beans, pie pumpkins and Parisienne carrots are growing like weeds, but the Contender peas and "giant" pumpkins are struggling. The "giant" pumpkins have not even sprouted yet...I need to replant the cucumbers as I think most became snacks for our hens.
Looking Around the House
I see the scattering of kids' toys, a metallic red RC car (with no remote), an orange drinking cup with a matching straw (left from yesterday), 2 bottles of sunscreen on the coffee table, my struggling indoor plants, the missing TV (moved into Sam's room for movies), and a carpet that I should be vacuuming.
Menu for this Week
Sunday - Ham and Cheese Quiche
Monday - Leftover Spaghetti and Meat Sauce or Ham and Cheese Quiche
Tuesday - Grilled Chicken, Potatoes and Veggies
Wednesday - Dinner at Bible Study or Kids' Pick
Thursday - PB & J or Pasta with Meat Sauce
Friday - Hamburgers with Baked Fries
I also made a mocha chocolate cake from scratch with vanilla buttercream frosting for dessert. It didn't last long...
What's on my TV Today
Nothing at the moment. Perhaps the kids will watch a movie or two that we've borrowed from the library when they return from visiting their Dad.
What I'm Creating from the Craft Basket
I'm trying a couple new crochet patterns for coffee cup cozies (here and here). I have 3 skeins of yarn, dark jewel tones in gold, blue, burgundy and green, "thyme" green and "heather" gray, and am hoping to create some comfy cozies this coming week.
Allegiant by Veronica Roth, the 3rd book in the Divergent Series. I do enjoy the "young adult fiction" section of my library.
Things that Make Me Happy and Thankful
Quiet days at home with my sweet husband and funny kids.
I'm linking up to The Simple Woman at The Simple Woman's Daybook and to the Diary of a Stay At Home Mother at Happy Homemaker on Mondays.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giventh, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (KJB John 14:27)
