Tuesday 4 ~ Lunchtime! ~ 4/6/2021

https://mytuesday4meme.blogspot.com/

Head over to Tuesday's Place for the questions and to visit everyone's answers!


This week the topic is lunch..

1. Lunch can be either glorious or bland, hard to choose or easy. Which is it for you and why?

Lunch for me is usually quick and easy.  Maybe a bowl of cereal or a grilled cheese sandwich.  Our main meal is "supper" :)

2. What are your choices for a nice lunch?

I kind of already answered this, oops!  Leftovers are also a good option for lunch.

3. Is lunch a big meal or a light meal for you?

I already answered this one too!  lol  Lunch is usually light.  Except for Sundays.  On Sunday we always have a potluck at Church and it is the main meal of the day.

4. "Let's do lunch" has become a funny phrase used in movies and jokes and usually just a throw away kind of thing to say.   Do you organize lunch with friends or family often? Do you eat out or in? If you eat out what is your favorite place to go?

Most of the time, lunch is just a throw it together kind of deal.  It depends on who is home and what time they had breakfast as to whether we eat lunch together.  We always sit down to supper though as a family.

My favorite place to go out to eat lunch would be anywhere that serves breakfast all day.  I love breakfast foods :)

Happy Homemaker Monday ~ 4/5/2021


Come join Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday. 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hello, and Happy Monday!


The weather outside is:

Beautiful!  And the week ahead looks great :)



On today's to-do list: 

I'm getting this post up late so I'll tell you what I've already done today.

Laken is on Easter Break until Wednesday but she had Track & Field practice this afternoon.  While she was at practice, the hubby and I went grocery shopping for the week ahead.  The first bill for our new-to-us Nissan Rogue came in the mail so I spent some time setting up the banking information and making that first payment.

I still need to read my devotions and exercise...

Happening this week:

Tomorrow is Laken's first T&F Meet.  I appears that she will be on the throwing team with the discus and the javelin and possibly the shotput.

Wednesday evening is a Parent's Meeting for all the 8th grade parents to discuss scheduling for next year.  I can't believe my baby is going to be in High School!

The sale at Kaylee's work is over and so is the overtime, I think.  She enjoyed her long weekend.

The hubby is on third shift this week.  He managed to somehow tweak his knee putting together a swing set for the kids at Church.  He has no idea how he did it...  Hubby also finally goes to the eye doctor for new glasses on Thursday.  He's overdue.

Currently reading:

I'm still getting ready to start reading "What to Do With a Mad Marquess" by Ivy Hart.



On the TV:

We started watching the series "Clarice" and are enjoying it.  We're anxiously awaiting new episodes of The Prodigal Son.

Listening to:

This week I featured "Hold On To Me" by Lauren Daigle on Songs on Sunday.

On the menu week:

Monday ~  We grabbed Burger King
Tuesday ~ Chicken, Mashed Potatoes
Wednesday ~ Pork Chops, Alfredo Noodles
Thursday ~  Ham, Fried Potatoes
Friday ~ Pizzaroni, Garlic Bread
Saturday ~ Grilled Cheese, Soup
Sunday ~ Potluck at Church

In the Craft Basket:

"Linen" Granny Squares.  16/35 squares completed.  I didn't even pick up my hook this week...

Memory Verse

"For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died; and He died for all, so that those who live would no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose on their behalf."  2 Corinthians 5:14-15


Have a great Monday!

My Weekly Bookishness ~ 4/2/2021


All things bookish!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What I Read:


Review coming soon!

~~~~~~~~~~

What I'm Reading:


Blurb:

Helen Jardin has a rebel's heart. True, she isn't entirely sure how to go about being rebellious, but enthusiasm should more than make up for wisdom where scandal is concerned... even if said enthusiasm has left her in a seedy gaming hell, surrounded by men who seemed determined to make her be more scandalous than she'd like to be.

Thank goodness Isaac Mayfield, penniless marquess and family friend, is there to rescue her. Not only is Isaac trustworthy enough to confide in, he certainly won't tell her family about her plans to be disreputable - especially if she threatens dire consequences for his precious etchings. In fact, upon further consideration, he's just the person to aid Helen in her quest.

But scandal's a funny thing. Courting danger with a pleasant companion is very close to... well, courting. And as Isaac becomes kinder, wittier and more handsome by the minute, is Helen in danger of losing her heart rather than her reputation?


First Lines:

Helen Jardin hadn't known what to wear to a gaming hell, so she had erred on the side of caution.

56%/Page 56

"Thank you." Isaac's shoulders sagged with relief.  He'd been so worried about her refusing--but why had he been so worried?

~~~~~~~~~~~

What I'll (Probably) Read Next:


Blurb:

Jane Jardin is frustrated. Desperate to find herself a useful occupation in life, she finds herself unable to do anything thanks to her position. The sister of a duchess is meant to sit in drawing room, embroider fire-screens and wait patiently to be married - and despite spending her entire life being quiet, modest and meek, Jane can't bear to be so thoroughly useless.

After a disastrous interview for yet another occupation she's deemed unfit for, she's ready to run away and hide forever. But a chance encounter with Peter Graves, a blinded soldier in need of assistance, leads to a sudden, surprising affinity - and a deception more audacious than anything Jane has undertaken before.

She soon grows close to Peter, and to the enchanting cottage where he lives. She's allowed to be as useful as she wishes. But this fairy-tale existence can't possibly continue - and when Peter realizes that Jane isn't who she claims to be, he's going to be heartbroken...


~~~~~~~~~~

What I Can't Wait To Read:


Blurb:

Molly McKenzie's bright personality and on-trend fashion and beauty advice have earned her an impressive social media following, as well as a big paycheck each month. When her manager-turned-boyfriend says she has an audition to appear as a host on a makeover show that nominates underprivileged youth, her dream of further fame seems to be coming true. There's just one catch: she has little experience interacting with people in need.

When her manager-boyfriend convinces her to partner with a local organization, she begins volunteering with a summer youth program. The program's director, Silas Whittaker, challenges her at every turn, but she swiftly grows more attached to the kids--and him--every day.

As Molly experiences an acceptance unlike anything she's known, she wrestles with the lies she's been believing about herself for years. She thought she knew what mattered most in life, but maybe she's had it wrong this whole time, and there's more to being truly seen than what she's built her entire life on.

Q.   Do you think you will ever get tired of blogging? (submitted by Julie @ JadeSky)

A. Every once in a while I do grow a bit tired of blogging.  When this happens, I take a break.  Inevitably, I come back to the blogging world though.

Bookishly Yours,
