Happy Homemaker Monday

 

The garden is getting a good soaking this morning.  It's hot and humid. Hubby is off work today, but not much will be done outside with the heat today.

I took my wedding ring in to have the prongs checked.  I cannot find my paperwork, so they are working on that.   I mean it's tough trying to find us in their system when it's been 22 1/2 years.  I just hope they can re-print our paperwork.  They said my ring looked as if it was brand new and complimented me on it.  One more thing off the to-do list.



Today I am joining Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.


Weather . . .

Looking around the house . . .

Ugh.  I can't believe I'm gonna say this, but I will be glad when the kids move out and my house stays "guest" friendly.

I understand about the kids! Mine are now gone but when they come by for a weekend, .... so much to do afterwards.
Thyme is looking good
Had my wedding ring checked 2 summrs ago... cost me a few $$ to have it cleaned and 2 prongs to repair. I never take it off, been 31 years now.

Your thyme plant is pretty! I don't want my kids to move out because then I know the blame for the mess will be all on me, LOL! Hope you have a great week!

Luludou, one of my kids that still lives here is a terrible housekeeper. I hope the jewelry store finds my paperwork. If I have it, repairs are covered.

Jean, thanks. I couldn't believe the size of the thyme leaves.

It is hot and humid here too. I cannot stand humidity! That thyme is remarkable! I have regular old thyme myself :) I love it on sandwiches for some reason!
