Good Morning! 
It's so nice here this morning. It's not too hot here yet. Last week, the temperatures had dropped 20 degrees, so we were treated to a beautiful, cool summer week. . We had been suck in a heat wave.With the heat index, it felt like it was in the 100's all week. Yuck! After last week's brief reprieve, the temps are back up. You can tell it's going to be a hot one, even the dog thinks so.


Enjoying some couch time during the heat wave.


Well, let's get on with Happy Homemaker Monday. 
Once again I'm joining Sandra over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom . If you've never visited her blog, I highly recommend stopping in. Grab a cup of tea, sit back, and spend a few minutes. I promise you'll enjoy your visit.


~The Weather~


Monday~ Mostly Sunny, 91*
Tuesday~ Mostly Sunny, 90*
Wednesday~ Scattered Thunderstorms, 84*
Thursday~ Scattered Thunderstorms, 84*
Friday~ Scattered Thunderstorms, 81*
Saturday~ Scattered Thunderstorms, 24*
Sunday~ Mostly Sunny, 85*

It's a little warmer than last week, but thankfully it doesn't feel like it's in the 100's anymore. I'm sure we'll see another week with temps that high before summer ends. I can't believe July is almost over! This summer has flown by way too quickly! 


~What's for Breakfast~

I'm having a chocolate and peanut butter protein shake. I'm trying to lose a few pounds. O.K., more than a few pounds. My goal is to lose 25 pounds. I'm trying to eat better and exercise more.

~Right now I'm~

Sitting here typing up this post. The dog is curled up next to me. The cats are romping around the house. Rocket has been accepted by 2 of the 3 cats. Mama still wants nothing to do with him and lets him know every time he comes within 3 feet of her. I figure it will take her another month. Bandit is thrilled to have a new buddy in the house. Those two were running through the house at 5:00 this morning. They were rather rambunctious for that time of the morning.

Doesn't he look happy and content? 
I think having a home agrees with him.



~What I'm Reading~


This is my first book by Emile Richards, but so far I'm really enjoying it. I After seeing Sandra's post last week, I ordered The Summer of Sunshine & Margot by Susan Mallery. I can't wait to start reading that book next. I always enjoy her stories.



~On the menu for the week~

Monday~ Leftover brisket my hubby made
Tuesday~ ??
Wednesday~ ??
Thursday~ ??
Friday~ ??
Saturday~ ??
Sunday~ ??

I need to sit down today and plan out the next couple of weeks. I've gotten out of that habit and I really need to get back into now that school is about a month away! 



~On my to do list~

Doctor's appointments galore...physicals for the kids, dentist appointments, even the dog has a vet appointment.
A Meet-up with the lady I co-teach CCD with. We received a new book to use this year, so we get to plan all new plans for our first grade religious class. 
A pool day for the kids and a mom get together for all the moms. That's one advantage when none of the kids drive yet. We moms get to visit with each other. 

~What I'm creating this week~

Nothing this week. I still need to figure out a pattern for the skirt I want to make. I have the material, but need to decided exactly how I want it too look. I have a feeling, I may end up draping a pattern on my dress form. 



~What needs done around the house~

A good old-fashion cleaning! 
I doubt we'll get to it this week with all the plans we already have, but it's on my to do list for next week. I think I'm going to create a list for the kids and I to complete. I'd love to give the house a thorough cleaning before we had back to school. 
Laundry needs done. 
Weeds need pulled. This task is a little scary since we've seen a copperhead near the flower bed. August is copperhead baby season here, so I'm not looking forward to digging around the rock flower beds. 

~From the camera~


A random flower I found in the garden. I have no clue what it is and where it came from. My guess is a little birdy shared a seed with us. If you know what it is, please let me know!


~A quote for the week~

Good morning everyone! 
We had another busy weekend here. Michael headed off to the National Shooting Championships. The boy has been busy, busy, busy this summer. 

 First, he went to Colorado to the Olympic Shooting Center for camp, 



home for a few days, then the beach, home a few days, 



off too work camp with our church where he and his team worked on repairs for an elderly lady. They put a new roof on her house, replaced siding, built a new porch, painted, and garden/yard maintenance. He came home for a few days and now is gone again. We are hoping he improves his times from last year. 

Therese had another swim meet this Saturday. She did great. 



Her last swim meet didn't go so well since she had a cold. A stuffy nose and clogged ears makes swimming a little difficult. She has one more week to get a qualifying time for championships. So if you could say a quick prayer she gets one that would be great. She wants to get to championships so badly!

Yesterday, Therese and I relaxed in the pool and ate dinner with my sister and her family. We had a wonderful, relaxing day.

All right, enough about our weekend. Let's get on with Happy Homemaker Monday!

Thursday- Honey Mustard Chicken, Roasted Potatoes, & Corn on the Cob
Friday- Chicken Fried Rice
Saturday- ??
Sunday- ??

I haven't decided on what else for the week. I figured I'd wait to see what Michael wants for dinner after a week away.

~Movies on the Play List~


~Books I'm Reading~

I'm currently reading another Hope Harbor novel from Irene Hannon, titled Driftwood Bay. It's #5 in the series. 





~What I'm Creating~

I bought 5 yards of a beautiful blue floral print at the fabric store yesterday. My plan is too make a skirt with it. I need to decide what type of style I want and get to work. I've been cleaning up my sewing area. I really want to get back into designing and sewing clothes. I also need to finish the 2 quilts I started. Now that the kids are older, I'm finding I have more time to myself. 


~My To-Do List~

Laundry..it never ends
School lesson plans
List some more books to sell.
Lesson plans for my 1st grade religious education class I teach. We got knew books this year, so I'm starting over from scratch.


~Looking Around the House~

The bathrooms and bedrooms need cleaned. The house needs vacuumed and mopped. I need to finish reorganizing the pantry. I need to take a few items to the thrift store to donate. I also need to finish organizing the school room. We have about a month and half left before we had back to school.

~From the Camera~

Another photo of this handsome man. He's adjusting well. He loves to be held and will sit on your lap.


His fur looks and feels outstanding. His neck wound is all healed. He's even gained a few pounds. Hiss bones don't stick out as much as they did. 
our only complaint is he talks not stop. I've never know a more vocal cat. They only time he's not trilling is when he's sleeping. Trilling is a sign of happiness, so I guess he's just letting us know he loves his new home.


~Inspirational Quote for the Week~



Wising you all a wonderful week!






Till Next Time,
Monique
