Homemaker's Journal: Monday, November 11, 2019

Keeping a journal has always been a challenge for me, and not something I grew up doing. Posting something positive on a Monday may help me look forward to the rest of the week.

THE WEATHER THIS WEEK...

Highs this week are only in the 60s with freezing temperatures at night. My husband kindly remembered to bring my potted lemon and lime trees into the garage a couple of nights ago. It's too cold for me to do much of anything outside. Rain is expected tomorrow and later this week.

AROUND THE HOME...

Things are pretty quiet this morning. Laundry is started and the boys and I are working on a birthday cake for my mother. We're having a family dinner tonight to celebrate her birthday, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. She'll be having a major surgery later this week (two days before her birthday) and will not be able to eat solid food for months as she recovers. I'll be preparing her holiday meal favorites for dinner tonight so she won't miss out too much this year.

AGENDA FOR TODAY...

Clean the kitchen, prepare holiday dinner, and finish making cake. Piano lessons again this afternoon and my mom's birthday celebration dinner tonight.


A PEEK INTO MY DAY...

"Kitchen Helpers"

A FAVORITE QUOTE FOR TODAY...

PLANS FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK...

Dance lessons, a well-care visit, and a dentist visit for my older daughter. Mom's surgery is on Thursday. The boys have nothing going on this week and will just be along for the ride.

  3. Highs only in the 60's sounds so nice. It was a 9 degree windchill here on Tuesday but today we hit the 50's (weird Midwestern weather, normal). Hope your mom's surgery went well & you've had a great week.
