Happy Homemaker Monday 05/18

4810327544_8de76ff062Had a nice weekend.  The forecast had predicted rain all day Sunday, but it missed us completely.  Such a beautiful day for our town’s Battin for Boobies Softball Tournament to raise money for Breast Cancer research.  The Guns & Hoses (police department & fire department team) were the reigning champs!!  Probably because their pitcher, our Fire Chief, was escorted to the pitcher’s mound by a fully uniformed police officer, LOL.  Good fun for a good cause. #smalltowns

As always Linking-up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.

THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:
Beautiful…finally.  The windows are open, and a nice cool breeze is coming through.  Looks like a great week ahead.

ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:
Coffee with Sweet Cream creamer.

CURRENTLY READING/HAVE READ:
It’s a Waverly Life by Maria Murnane.  This is the second book in the series.  These books are really funny, and Waverly is just such a fun character.  This is definitely “Chick Fic(tion)” as her and her friends recount their dating escapades in great (sometimes embarassing) detail.

ON THE TV:
Still need to catch up on Castle.  Voice is coming to an end, would like to see Sawyer win, but really any of the finalists who win would not be a disappointment, such great talent.  Also want to watch the Red Nose Day special on Thursday.  My youngest has his red nose ready…found it at Walgreen’s.

Home School
Laundry
Plan Menu and shopping list
Would like to get out and play tennis

 

 
ON THE MENU THIS WEEK:
Still need to get my menu together and grocery list.  Have some leftovers that I’ll be pulling out for the next couple of days.

NEW RECIPE I TRIED OR WANT TO TRY THIS WEEK:
Made the Apple treats that Carrie posted.  These are really good.  Such a refreshing snack, and easy too.  Slice an apple, spread peanut butter on it and I added finely chopped peanuts, mini chocolate chips and butterscotch chips to mine.  My sons loved them!!

LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS WEEK:
Wednesday is our first Cruise Night for the season.  My uncle has been running this event in our town for the past 10 years.  Ten blocks of muscle cars, old and new, 50’s music piped throughout the main street of town.  To kick the season off and to raise money for our Paint the Town Pink, there will be a car decorated by the high school’s art department and you get a sledgehammer to take a whack at it, and “smash cancer.”  I thought it would be easy to use a sledgehammer to make a dent in a car, but yeah…it’s not that easy…but definitely fun to try!!

MY FAVORITE BLOG POST THIS WEEK:
The Aspirations of a Hot Cross Bun

This was from the #blogbattle from last week.  I just loved this unique perspective of the word, Blondewritemore always has something fun to read on her blog.
