The weather outside is::::
Today is really pretty right now, but we are expecting rain and thunderstorms later in the afternoon!
On the breakfast plate this morning::::
Nothing yet - but I am having my morning caffeine!
As I look outside my window:::
I realize I already need my grass cut again! It's a never-ending cycle!
Right now I am::::
Procrastinating getting into the shower and going grocery shopping!
As I look around the house::::
I see quite a few things that still need straightening up - but definitely improved since yesterday!
On today's to do list::::
- Grocery shopping!
- Sweep and mop the kitchen floor
- Lesson planning for the next week
- Help Jake study for his English final, a test on "Their Eyes Were Watching God" by Zora Neal Hurston
- Cook ahead breakfasts for the coming week
- Homeschool "homework" with Emily (we do an ASL class on Sunday together, watch some type of video - this week it's episode 3 of Story of US - and an art lesson)
I am reading a few things. "Interview with the Vampire" for our family book club. "The Poisonwood Bible" I am re-reading - savoring. "Homeschooling the Teen Years" and starting the third in "The Immune" series by David Kazzie.
On the TV today::::
I'm a little lost with all my seasons ended in most things! Looking forward to the start of:
Graceland season 3 - starts June 25th
So You Think You Can Dance - starts June 15th
Watching the final episode of When Calls the Heart
I need something new to binge-watch on Netflix!!!!! Help appreciated! :)
On the menu this week::::
Sunday: My boy's choice - Burrito bar! He likes beef and refried bean burritos, my oldest wants a 'cheeseburger burrito' and I will have the homemade version of the Taco Bell burrito with Fritos crunched up inside with cilantro lime rice. This one looks good!
Monday: Barefoot Contessa's Shrimp scampi linguini with broccoli.
Tuesday: Slow Cooker pork, baked potatoes and corn on the cob (all in one pot) green beans
Wednesday: Family dinner @ parents' house
Thursday: Grilled chicken using the GF grill, Barefoot Contessa's roasted Brussels sprouts (see video below) and rice.
Friday: Steak Caesar salads along with our first family book club meeting!
In our homeschool:
9th grade is going along well. Em is working really hard in some subjects, not so thrilled with others. I'm planning a 1-week in-depth astronomy unit study at the end of the month, as she is very interested in astronomy and she is not taking that until she starts 10th grade!
I am very stressed this week - so I will be repeating I Peter 5:7
