Happy Homemaker Monday for July 13th, 2015



The weather outside is::::
Upper 70s but very humid today.  Humidity is NOT my friend! 






On the breakfast plate this morning::::
I didn't have breakfast this morning :(  

As I look outside my window:::
I live in a typical working-class neighborhood.  Small-ish houses with hard-working families inside.  My block has a lot of kids on it, which I like! 

Right now I am::::
Taking a break from cleaning.  Laundry is going, dishes are soaking in the sink.  Jennah is vacuuming.  

As I look around the house::::
I always see things that need to be done!  I'll be moving out of this house at the end of February.  I really do love this little house, but we need something bigger.  I wish the attic was a bedroom and we'd be set! 

TO DO::::
Today:
Friend's son's graduation party
Finish all laundry
General picking up and cleaning
Dishes
Make some bulgur for lunch tomorrow (with leftover lemon pepper turkey)

Favorite blog posts or pins from this week:::



Currently Working On Or Creating: 
Plugging away at research for my novel.  It's a strange process - I'm always thinking about my characters and plot lines, etc.  It feels good to be creative.
