Happy Homemaker Monday ~ A Day Late

I'm so not used to this new work schedule for my husband.  It's crazy on Sunday's.  We had plans to take a motorcycle ride to de-stress, and due to morning must-do's, we never got one in.

The garden however, is tilled.  Not but us.  We literally had to hire someone, and it was done in about a half hour. 

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

The weather . . . 
Rain, 75°/52°, looks like we'll linger around the upper 70's all week, but will have to dodge the rain to plant.

As I look outside the window . . . 
see above, rain...

Right now I am . . .
Posting this.

Thinking and pondering . . . 
...which part of the kitchen to start with this morning.

How I am feeling . . . 
Exhausted.  I asked Daughter E if she would help  me plant my tomatoes.  She has to work.

On the breakfast plate . . .
Leftover Southern Sausage Enchiladas with homemade sausage gravy.  Coffee.

On my reading pile . . .
Trick or Treat Murder, Leslie Meier

On my TV this week . . .

On the menu . . .
Have no idea, will work on this today.
Yesterday was super busy.

Looking around the house . . .
We continue to have no order due to the kitchen project.  Soon....soon, I keep telling myself.

To-do list . . .
-paint kitchen
-laundry (using drying racks)
-pay bills
-write out menu
-check asparagus and rhubarb
-clean air conditioner vents/filters
-either bake a peanut butter pie or rhubarb dessert

From the camera . . .
We inherited a huge amount of assorted nails, screws, nuts and bolts from my Dad.  I was super excited to open a bag of screws, thinking they were just what I needed, only to find out they were too thin in diameter.  My husband could not believe, in all that stash, there was not one of the size I needed.  The screws that came with the drawer knobs are too short for my desk drawers.  Yes folks, this is what is on my camera.

Prayers . . .
Our biker friend who had surgery is out of the hospital, but still needs prayers for continued healing.

We've had a lot of rain lately also. It was supposed to rain today but so far just a sprinkle. Have a great rest of the week!

Thanks Colletta, I'm glad for the rain, as the garden needed it. Hopefully it will dry up and give me a day for more planting.
