Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather:::
Today is supposed to be partly cloudy, but its clear and cool right now, a really fresh morning.

On my reading pile:::  
The San Diego Reader, our local weekly newspaper for those of us who live on the fringe.

On my TV:::
We have an hour of Leave It To Beaver on at lunchtime that Anthony and I have been enjoying.

On the menu for this week:::
Whatever is cheap and close at dinnertime. The closer I get to my due date, the less I cook. I do plan to double up on the shopping this week and freeze some casseroles for after baby. I see a lot of macaroni and cheese in my future.

On my to do list:::
Grocery shop
Pack bag for birth center

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
I finished the purple bag for my husband and am now working on a 'flower' to decorate it. I have no idea what he will do with this bag.

Looking around the house:::
I see just a few things to be picked up and put away. A few dishes and a load of laundry should get us up to speed.

From the camera:::
I don't remember if this is pumpkin or spaghetti squash. We threw some seeds out in the yard last year and forgot about them. They just popped up on their own about a week and a half ago.

Something fun to share::: 
I've been drinking Slurpees a lot. I don't like a lot of sugary drinks but I've found diet Pepsi, Crystal Light flavors, and some generic sugar free flavors at various 7-Elevens. Its a really nice treat on a hot summer day.


  1. I love that the squash just showed up. I'll have to throw some seeds in the yard and see what happens.

    1. I've never gotten any squash but the seeds sprout and grow easily!
