Home Management Monday - June 8, 2020

Good Monday Morning, Everyone! 💗

My new work schedule starts today, so I worked ahead on this post as I could throughout the week and am hoping to pull it together in time to send it out this morning before I leave.

How was your week and weekend?

Our week was okay here, but the weekend was a difficult one, to say the least, and there's no delicate way to say what happened. A family member's girlfriend died while camping at the park where I work. She had health issues, yes, but was so young...only 47. Please be in prayer for Gina's family, friends, and loved ones. 

Other than that I'm not even going to try to recount the week. At this point I really can't even remember much about it, other than it was incredibly hot. Let's just move right on into this week's post, shall we?

I awoke to...

... an early alarm after a somewhat fitful night.

What I'm thinking...

... about how short life really is. Use your time wisely and take care of those God-ordained relationships.

What I'm thankful for...

... family, long-time friends, good health, God's merciful hand of protection, the promises found in His Word, my job, my new work schedule, and the new responsibilities that go with it.

On the breakfast plate...

... fat-free turkey slices, egg, and a Laughing Cow cheese wedge on toast with a Cutie and hot tea

The weather...

... Hot, but not as hot as last week (we had 90's all week with heat indexes in the triple-digits). 😰 Right now it's 74 degrees and sunny, but rain is in the forecast for tonight.

This week's menu plan...

Monday - Tuna wraps, cottage cheese, and baby carrots
Tuesday - Grilled chicken salad
Wednesday - Stuffed pepper casserole and beets
Thursday - Turkey burgers and oven fries
Friday - Broiled salmon, baked potatoes, and oven-roasted carrots
Saturday - Dh's night to cook
Sunday - Leftovers

Well, that's it for this week. I pray that each and every one of you have a great week ahead! Stay close to the Lord and stay in His Word!

Until next time...
