Day Book: Monday 5/8/17
No, I'm not back to blogging regularly. But I like writing Day Book posts on Mondays as it helps me plan my week!
Outside my window... It's sunny but bone dry! It's supposed to be 89F/31.6C today, ugh. I watered my flowers earlier today and the birdies were singing. I spotted cardinals, a hummingbird, lots of wasps and bees, a few butterflies and lizards, and a solitary sandhill crane flying overhead.
I am thinking... that I need to get out of my diet/exercise funk and do something about my ballooning weight, darn it!
I am thankful for... Greg getting to Romania safely this morning! I was worried about him all night, especially since he only had 1 hour in Vienna to go through Customs and change terminals. But he made it and is now ensconced in his 5-star hotel. I'm a little grumpy about that, though. Lucky bugger.
From the learning rooms... My daughter has been done with her exams and classes for a week already. Youngest Son will be taking the AP exam for Human Geography on Friday. I'm nervous for him, I hope he does well! He'll be attending the "banquet" for his FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) club on Wednesday. They're just meeting at Golden Corral, which happens to be his favorite restaurant.
From the kitchen... my daughter is baking cookies as I type this. I haven't made a menu for the week but I know what I'm cooking for dinner tonight and tomorrow... and probably Wednesday and Thursday too!
I am wearing... black yoga pants, a dark grey V-neck T-shirt, my walking shoes.
I am going... to watch more episodes of Game of Thrones with my daughter this afternoon. We're binge-watching it so many hours are spent on the couch.
I am reading... the trivia on the GoT episodes on imdb.com :)
I am hoping... that Greg's return trip goes well later on this week, that Youngest Son scores well enough on the AP exam to earn the college credit, that it rains soon!
I am hearing... "Forensic Files" on the TV. I'm not paying much attention to it since I'm typing this post so I'll have to start from the beginning.
Around the house... It's not all GoT-watching, I did do chores this morning! I washed all 4 litter boxes, did the laundry and hung half of it outside to dry, watered all the plants, and more. My daughter is baking cookies right now. The cats are amusing themselves.
One of my favorite things... my 2017 Sodapalooza cup from RaceTrac:)
A few plans for the rest of the week... I'd like to go pick blueberries with my daughter, possibly tomorrow. I'll do my grocery shopping while my son is at his banquet so I can pick him up without having to drive back to Clermont again. I'll need to be picking Greg up from the airport upon his return. In between all of that: chores and watching more episodes of Game of Thrones and Forensic Files!
Here's the picture I'm sharing...
Have a good week!
