Happy Homemaker Monday - May 6, 2013

The weather...
Gorgeous.  High of 28C this afternoon.    

Right now I am...

not feeling so well today, so I'm sitting on my couch typing this while watching Miss C play her Disney matching game.


that I have to plant my veggie garden this week while the weather is nice. 

On my reading pile...

Cookbooks - I'm looking for menu inspiration!

On the menu for this week...

Monday: Spaghetti bolognaise with salad
Tuesday: Chicken with mushroom sauce over rice
Wednesday: Barbecue pork chops with new potatoes and green beans
Thursday: New recipe from my cookbooks
Friday: Homemade pizza with salad
Saturday: Something barbecued?
Sunday: Mom's Night Off!!

On my to do list...

Clean my fridge
Write grocery list
Change bed linens

Realistically, I'll probably do a couple of loads of laundry and write my grocery list.  If I feel better later this afternoon, I'll clean my fridge in preparation for grocery shopping tomorrow.  

What I am creating this week...

Still working on updating my home management binder.  

Looking forward to this week...

Lots of activities outside this week while the weather is so beautiful. I bought the girls a bubble machine and they had a lovely time chasing the bubbles this weekend. I'm sure that will be getting lots of use this week! I have to plant my vegetable garden, do some clean up work outside and take a few walks to the pond / park with Miss C.     

Looking around the house...

Dishes to be washed, toys to be picked up, paperwork to be moved from the table and filed properly.

From the camera...

    1. Thanks Sandra. I feel much better today. It must have been a 24 hour bug.
