Good morning! Ah, it's another gorgeous day in New England. We have had a very mild summer so far and I am not complaining (even if it means the pool doesn't get used). I am once again joining Sandra at Diary of a Stay At Home Mom for Happy Homemaker Monday. See her blog for more!
Breakfast Time - What's On the Plate This Morning
Thanks to the results of this year's physical, it is time to finally get serious about my health. So this morning I had half of a whole wheat bagel with cream cheese and am still nursing my smoothie made with mixed frozen fruit and water.
On Today's To Do List
Mostly grocery shopping. We are trying to save some money on the grocery bill with a lot of the kids gone this summer, but I do need to buy lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. I think I will start soaking and cleaning my boys' bedding - taking my time since they won't be home until Saturday.
Have you joined Kindle Unlimited? I am so excited about this. They give you the first month free, and I am taking advantage, and am reading The Bloodletter's Daughter by Linday Lafferty.

The Weather Outside Is
Perfect. It is 72 degrees and sunny. The humidity isn't too bad - 68%.
On the Menu This Week
Healthy. Dinners will consist of grilled meat with a large salad or rice and beans with dark green vegetables.
If I Have a Few Minutes to Myself I Will
Finish reading my book!
Last night I made brown rice (plain, no salt or butter) and added cooked collard greens, black beans, and canned tomatoes. It was actually pretty good. One thing I have found is that once I give up sugar and fats, I start to appreciate the taste of real foods.
In the Garden
My husband takes care of that. We did have one tomato so far. There is nothing better than garden grown tomatoes!
Favorite Photo From the Camera
Did I share this one already? Hopefully not.
Send your kids away for the summer and enjoy your clean house! Ha, ha, just kidding. I miss my kids tremendously and admit I've been a little bored, but I do appreciate that the house stays clean!
Visiting With Blogging Friends
There really are not many blogs that I follow - many that I used to have stopped blogging. Sandra's is the only one I read with regularity. However, a friend reference the following blog on Facebook and I thought it worth bookmarking and exploring later:
My kids. Always.
