Monday, August 16, 2021
Ahh, Monday. It was a slow start for me this morning. It started to rain yesterday evening, and it continued on sporadically throughout the night. Normally this would be ideal sleeping conditions, but I had so much on my mind that I couldn't fall asleep until after 2:30! I was so bored that I even researched paint colors for my kitchen, living room, and bathrooms. Keep in mind, I hate painting. Then I researched how much it would cost to have someone paint our two-story foyer and staircase. I told hubby about my paint color ideas this morning and he gave me the green light as long as all he has to do is buy the paint. Lucky for me, I have a mother who loves painting and DIY projects, so with her onboard to help me, it may be doable. I also hinted to my dear husband that the wainscoting he did in our dining room is so gorgeous and would look amazing in our foyer as well. Cross your fingers that he'll feel motivated. It's taken him two years to complete our built-in bookshelves (they're still not done), so maybe we should take this one step at a time.
Now back to this week's Homemaker's Journal. I'll be joining Sandra over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for Happy Homemaker Monday!
THE WEATHER THIS WEEK...Tropical Storm Fred is currently making landfall in Florida. Normally this means we need to prepare, but the projected path northward seems to be inland and away from the coast. Regardless, we're still expected to get a lot of rain this week. Scattered thunderstorms are projected for later today, Wednesday, and through the weekend. My mom's church is having their annual Homecoming on Sunday (I attend and treat it as a family reunion, having never been a member of her family church), but with all of the upcoming rain, it may not be possible. It's an outdoor country-style potluck.
AROUND THE HOME...I didn't get downstairs until around 7:30. My oldest son asked for "egg in the hole" for breakfast, so I got started on that for everyone. My younger son is super picky, but I made him one anyway and he actually liked it. My oldest daughter didn't want hers, so her brother ate that one as well.
