Weekly Reflections and Planning June 27th, 2016


Today I am linking with Sandra for Happy Homemaker Monday as well as Organizing Junkie for Meal Plan Monday

  1. Mop kitchen floor
  2. Laundry
  3. Cook ahead 
  4. Bible study
  5. Finish ARC book 
  6. Watch "Outlander"
  7. Clean kitchen counters
  8. Clean stove

The weather outside:::  It is cloudy, humid and in the mid-90s.  Storms on the way.  We really need it, the grass is getting all crunchy! 

I am thinking.. About how much there is to get done around the house.

I am thankful... That I have Henry in my life.  He brings me such happiness.

One of my favorite things... Flowers.  Looking at them gives me peace and joy. 

I am wearing... A print tank top and black capri pants. 

I am creating... Still working on my book. It's Christian fiction, for those of you that asked.  I'm still sorting out a lot of the details.  I'll share more when I quit changing my mind about every single thing!  :) 

I am watching... Binge-watching the first two seasons of "Outlander".  

I am reading... an ARC of the book "Delilah" - I'll have a book review up in a couple of days.  Also reading the new Shanna Hatfield book, "Millie" (7th in the Pendleton series, which I adore) and re-reading my favorite book of all time, "Gone with the Wind" by Margaret Mitchell for the Paper & Glam Bookclub on Goodreads.  I even picked up the 1964 version that my Mom had when I was growing up!  

I am listening to... not too much.  Christian music radio stations mostly. 

I am hoping... to have a great time during my stay-cation next week 

In the schoolroom... hopeful I will have the money come through to order Em's curriculum for 11th grade by this weekend! 

In the garden... My herbs are growing nicely.  I've had to pull up quite a few flowers that died in all this dryness despite daily waterings.  The tiger lilies are up and bring me a happiness to my heart I cannot even describe!
