This Week In My Home...
...We are temporarily a one car household. This bothers John far more than it does myself. I have often felt of late that we might well be a one car family, now that John's job only has him gone 1, or at most 2, days per week. It bothers my husband a great deal, however, to have me home alone without a way to 'go'. Never mind that only perhaps twice a month do I ever bother to 'go' when he's at work. For the most part, I am wonderfully content to be home and to focus my attentions hard upon household things when John is working. It suits me best to have time alone to piddle about, tackle projects and deep cleaning if I so desire and sometimes simply sit and just listen to the quietness surrounding me. This is not something my husband can fathom.
I expect we shall have the Honda back by end of the week but in the meantime, it will be fun to pretend I am back in Granny's homemaking days and one car households were the norm.
...I plan meals:
I didn't strictly stick to my menu plan last week. One of the problems I ran into was no egg to help bind meatloaf. I made another dish instead and it was a huge hit with my husband so I'm including that here this week...But this week I will be making my meatloaf, which is one of my favorite comfort meals.
Fancy Pants Burgers, Brown Rice, Steamed Broccoli, Butterscotch Pudding
Florentine Meatballs, Whole Wheat Pasta, Green Salad, Italian Green Beans, Rolls
Turkey Tenderloin, Roasted Butternut Squash w/Brussels Sprouts, Pear Salad
Grilled Steak, Potato and Onion Packets, Asparagus (canned)
Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, Corn Muffins
on my own
out with Mama
...I plan work and appointments:
Hair appointment this week. I planned it for a time when the local library will be open so I can drop by there as well.
Work on rose bed.
Work on front porch.
Get new items tagged for the booth. TAKE THEM INTO THE BOOTH.
...I have fun:
I am determined to make it to the local library this week. I'd thought I might do it last week but I was far too worn out to even consider it after my day out.
I'll have lunch out with Mama.
I mean to do some work on genealogy files once more, trying to get information gathered.
