Happy homemaker 2021-06-21

Hello friends!

Last week I took Friday afternoon off as I wasn't feeling top shape (tooth had hurt during the night and had not slept well).  It seems fine now.

We went to dd's appartment on Saturday to bring her boxes so she could pack and brought some of her stuff back home (she will have less space in her new appartment.. it is bigger but she will be sharing with a friend).  My sis, bil, mom & dad met us there for supper.  It's nice to see family again. 

My son and family came over Sunday afternoon for Father's day.

Let's join Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom .

The weather (in celsius)

Partly cloudy
Mostly sunny
Partly cloudy

On my mind
Day full of errands ... yuck!
Thinking how it'll be quite the job to move dd.  Stairs and just the two of us with her.  She wanted to have a mover but my husband said we'd do it ourselves.

On the breakfast plate
Toast with a slice of cheese and some water

On my reading pile

From the camera:

Looking around the house
I feel like condemning the basement... pffff!  I try to declutter but bring back stuff from mil's house, mom's house and now dd's house!  and my husband is a keeper, grrrr

On my to-do list 

Over the weekend
  • Wash main bathroom
  • Vac main floor

Monday or during the week (as time permits)
  • Post here - DONE
  • Menu-plan - 
  • Go to municipal office to get a kit for the shower head (a promotion they have)
  • Go to costco (exchange, buy a few containes for dh's move)
  • 12:25 pick up orthesis
  • 3:15 get my vaccine info corrected and POSSIBLY, get the 2nd dose
  • Call insurance guy for payment
What a yucky day!  Should be really hot and humid too with thunderstorms.  At least this week will be a short work week.  Thursday is St-Jean-Baptiste day (our national holiday) and I think I might either take Friday off or at least half the day.

To relax this week or In my crafting basket 
Read outside if I can.  Plan my summer fun!

Quote of the week 


  1. I'm a week behing on blog reading so just saw this post. Your grands are so cute!

  2. Moving is never fun, but especially not with stairs! I hope it goes smoothly. I hope you get your 2nd dose and the errands aren't as bad as you think. Have a GREAT week.

  3. Your granddaughter is adorable and Xavier is at such a fun learning age.

    Regarding basement, pick a corner and quarantine items. Put date they need to be gone by and tell those who are in charge of them it not gone by then it will get donated. I am doing that with items I can't decide if I want to keep or not. If I haven't gotten into the box by a certain date I won't even open it and just send it off. Out of mind out of sight. LOL

  4. I am so glad you got to spend time with family. :)

    Those grandbabies are just adorable, so sweet!

    I hope you have a wonderful week, and thank you for always leaving such kind comments on my blog. I appreciate them so much.

  5. Hello lovely Lady,
    Love your humor so much. And love the videos you share. I'm trying to make myself move a bit more each day. I'm approaching the big 5-0, so staying very conscious of wanting to stay healthy and active. And I always love seeing the pics of your grandkids. They are so precious!!
    Have a blessed rest of your week Lucie. xoxo

  6. Glad you are getting to see family again! Ha, I think opposites attract, my husband likes to keep things as well. Good luck with your basement. Beautiful grandkids. Hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!

  7. Best quote ever!
    I hope that you guys have lots of luck moving! Moving is the worst, hands down. Hope that the process goes smooth for you! I've got to get to working out... I have been looking at some youtube videos for inspiration, so I'll check that one out as well! Hope you have a wonderful week!
