Day Book: Monday 10/3/16
Outside my window... my windows are all foggy again. It must have rained last night because everything is wet. The sun is up but it seems to be all cloudy so far.
I am thinking... that I might need to go grocery shopping tomorrow instead of Wednesday because of Hurricane Matthew. I'm afraid the stores will be busier on Wednesday. We'll see.
I am thankful for... Greg being home. It's more work for me but I love when he's with us :)
From the learning rooms... my son has to get with his Geometry Honors teacher this morning. She and I emailed this weekend because I saw he got a 40 on an assignment but he had no clue why. She said he hadn't turned in some worksheets but he told me he had. Otherwise, I wonder if classes will be cancelled on Friday because of the hurricane being so close to our state.
From the kitchen... I have a menu figured out and now I need to see what I still need to buy to make it happen. I should have most of everything already. I baked banana chocolate chip bread yesterday and we still have 3/4 of a loaf on the table so I'm not baking today. I'll roast a chicken for dinner tonight and I'm hoping that I can roast it in the electric roaster outside, but it looks like we have 70% chance of rain today so probably not. I'm planning on baking rolls tomorrow.
I am wearing... my exercise clothes! I have found that I can exercise between 8 and 9 a.m. while the kittens sleep. However, they just woke up so scratch that plan for today. Maybe they'll be too busy fighting with one another to notice I've stepped away. A couple of them tend to follow me when they see me leave :)
I am creating... a cleaner home? I got nothing.
I am going... to ride my recumbent bike momentarily.
I am reading... blogs, the news... but no books. I had started reading the "Sri Lankan Cuisine" cookbook this past week but the descriptions and pictures before the recipes even start made me too hungry, lol!
I am hoping... that my daughter makes it to the Disney Casting Center OK this morning. She just left for her interview!
I am hearing... the kittens roughhousing, classical music playing on WQXR via IheartRadio on my Roku, the air conditioning running...
Around the house... my daughter just left for her interview, Greg and our son are gone as well. The kittens are being very rambunctious here in the living room. Our other cats are resting in the Cat Room. Not for long... I think I'll bring the kittens to them before I start biking :) I have a load of laundry in the washer already.
One of my favorite things... rubber/silicone spatulas make my life easier and more frugal!
A few plans for the rest of the week... there's actually not much going on this week. My youngest son had his volunteering shifts at the library, I need to go grocery shopping, we might have to prepare the yard for a hurricane or at least storms. I do have errands to run so I might do that tomorrow if I don't go grocery shopping then.
Here is the picture I am sharing... Hurricane Matthew as of 8 a.m. today. We are about where the corner of the "L" in Florida is. Right now it looks like Laura from All That Junk In My Trunk (who lives in Jacksonville which is on the East coast closer to Georgia) might have more to worry about than me and then obviously the coastal Georgia, SC and NC areas, but it can change pretty fast.
Have a great Monday! If you do a Day Book, please link to it in the comments!
