Outside my window... it's 7:21 a.m. and cloudy and grey although we have sunny weather predicted and a high of 86F/30C. It's 69F/20.5C right now. My street is tiny and very quiet.
I am thinking... that summer vacation is approaching fast (next week!) and that I need to work out a routine for myself or I'll be miserable. My life these days is lived by the rhythm of having to take my son to school in the morning, and awaiting his and Greg's return. I offered to drive Greg to work over the summer but he declined, lol. I'm seriously thinking that I'll have to get a job once my son goes off to college, just so that I'm not feeling the uselessness that I feel over the summer.
I am thankful for... Greg having come home safely from Romania and Middle Son's visit last night.
From the learning rooms... Daughter had her graduation on Friday night, Youngest Son doesn't have any exams this week that we're aware of (finals next week), he's finishing his driver's ed classes this week and he hasn't been assigned to an online French class on Florida Virtual School yet. Middle Son has started his Summer term general education classes that he needs to obtain his degree. They're online but one of them is a hybrid class that requires him to be IN class on Mondays from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. so he needs to try to get Mondays off over the summer, which might be hard as Disney expects him to have full availability. I hope it works out for him!
From the kitchen... I need to make a menu for the week and do the dishes. I'll probably bake something too.
I am wearing... a pink V-neck T-shirt from Target, a pair of tan cargo shorts from Goodwill, low socks and my walking shoes.
I am going... nowhere today, I don't think. Oh, I have to pick Youngest Son up from Driver's Ed class tonight so we'll stop by RaceTrac to get Sodapalooza refills.
I am reading... I started 3 different ebooks on Saturday and hated every single one of them. In desperation to have something light and entertaining to read, I borrowed a series of 3 Nora Roberts ebooks (old ones) from my library. Only, I had forgotten how clichés and cookie-cutter all of her books are so it's been aggravating me more than anything else. Maybe I'll try one of her newest ones again. Sigh. I used to loooove her, read over 100 of her books one year. Sometimes I feel I'm too critical as I'm running out of authors to enjoy. I have "The Millionaire Next Door" and a couple of issues of Kiplinger's magazine to go through, but it's harder for me to get in the mood when it's non-fiction.
I am hoping... that it rains some more this week. It poured for 4 hours on Saturday afternoon and that was awesome!
I am hearing... distant traffic through the closed windows, otherwise, just the click clack of my keyboard.
Around the house... Daughter is still asleep, Greg just left for work, I dropped off Youngest Son at school earlier. The cats must all be sleeping somewhere because I'm not hearing a peep and none are in the living room (I scolded the kittens for eating the big cats' food earlier so they're staying clear of me).
One of my favorite things... my credit cards :)
A few plans for the rest of the week... let's see, I think it's a humdrum week ahead: i need to make sure my daughter doesn't forget she has a doctor's appointment today. I really need to schedule my SUV's check-up. I'll be picking up Youngest Son from school a few more days this week as he's finishing driver's ed. Grocery shopping and errands, as usual. Maybe watching my daughter's graduation if they end up streaming it. Then on Sunday I told my BFF that I would drive her and her kids to the airport.
Here's the picture I'm sharing...
|I had another one of these Tropical Lemonades from Lily's on the Lake yesterday afternoon.|
So good! Greg had one too.
Have a good week!
