After a day of mostly reading, three catnaps, and an hour of outdoor work, I think I’m ready for another week. I was feeling very burned out yesterday, but tonight I am restored! I’m becoming a true believer that a day of rest is genuinely a necessity for inner peace and happiness. These occasional lazy Sundays I’ve been having recently are just the best.
It’s a pretty normal week ahead. Except I was considering meal plans and realized we’re all only going to be home to eat together two nights this week. It was one last week! It’s so bizarre as a family that doesn’t do sports or any type of club, we’re suddenly so busy in evenings that eating together is no longer the norm.
Monday is a work day. I’m looking forward to starting my next batch of dolls. And then Greg and I have an at home date night. I’m not sure what I’ll make yet, but it’s sure to be tasty!
Tuesday night is the last day of yoga classes. I fully plan on attending both of them this time!
Wednesday is another normal day. Possibly an errand day if I can wait that long.
Thursday night Caden has a therapy appointment and then there’s a Math/Science night at school. I don’t really know anything about it, except that it’s technically only for 2nd and 3rd graders, so maybe Shepard and I won’t even go? Not sure on that.
And a normal Friday! Not much to report this week.
Saturday will be busy. Two birthday parties, both in Madison. With a three hour time gap in between. Not worth going back home. I doubt the boys will be too keen on shopping in those hours! So…we’ll see. Maybe the weather will miraculously be amazing and we can hang out at some parks. And Sunday will hopefully be another lazy day because Thanksgiving week will be BUSY.
Top Priority: Dolls
November is practically halfway over! How did this happen?! I’ve been working hard, but I need to really step it up this week. Somehow. I think I’ll start with another batch of Christmas dolls and then mayyyybe attempt some Santas. I’ve never done Santas before. I’m also toying with the idea of some really primitive and simple teddy bears. It’s been a long time since I’ve made non-mohair bears.
Second Priority: Blogging
I’ve been coming up with quite a few topics I’d like to write on lately, but not a whole lot of time to devote to it. I’d like to do some fun posts, like Christmas gift guides or tell you about some of my favorite cookbooks. I still haven’t written a post about Halloween yet either. That one might not happen! I just want to keep writing because it makes me happy! I’m going to try to go back to my no sewing at night rule this week. But writing is completely allowed in the evenings!
Third Priority: Cookbook Reading
So in September I got a couple really amazing cookbooks. I started going through them when I went on my Door County trip. Then life got crazy back at home and I never finished. I was hoping to do this today, but I think I’m out of time. I want to finish looking at the cookbooks and pick meals to actually make. ASAP. Because the recipes look incredible. And I want to start doing a whole lot better at meal making again.
Meal Plans…sort of
Monday – Probably a type of stir fry/Asian influenced meal with a lot of broccoli and cauliflower from the farmer’s market
Tuesday – Soup maybe? It has to be a crockpot meal or nothing, since I’ll be at yoga all night
Wednesday – Hoping for a cookbook idea!
Thursday – Maybe fast food? Greg and Caden will probably need to go straight from therapy to Math Night, so that’s a bit of a predicament.
Friday – Pizza. Of course.
Have a great week!
