Sunday Salon

It is hotter than blue blazes here today.  I have made it through nine days of school with students already, and my girls go back tomorrow.  This week will seem like a blur since in addition to our school schedule, we are also starting up soccer practices.  

I worked for a bit at school today, watched Middle Sister play in a 3 on 3 soccer tournament this afternoon, shopped for groceries and managed to get in a short run. I have a lot of things I still need to do tonight - like getting school lunches ready and making sure everything is laid out for tomorrow morning when the rat race begins.

Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm Ravaged Hospital by Sheri Fink is calling my name.  A non-fiction account of what happened at this hospital during Hurricane Katrina I am amazed at what transpired there without anyone's knowledge until it was all over.  I would love to sit down and read until I was finished, but with other things on the agenda, I am going to have to work my way slowly through this book - and the many others- I have waiting for me.

It's supper time already and I have no idea what to make - with this heat outside eating doesn't even sound appealing.  I am wishing my family would fend for themselves, but I am doubting that will happen.

How about you? What are you planning for supper?

Sorry it's so hot! We had leftover burgers from a camping trip my husband just got back from. Baby's in bed, so I'm enjoying a leftover beer from the trip too! Stay cool!

It's hot here, too! I was going to grill hamburgers, fries and salad, but I'm too lazy, so I'm skipping the salad. We'll have that for lunch tomorrow, so I don't feel too guilty. Now to figure out how to grill those fries so I don't have to turn the oven on... ;) If I were fending for myself, I'd cook the burger and pour myself another glass of wine!

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my blog.

We do the "fend for ourselves" thing a lot but the boy's 10 mile cross country runs DOES require me to have food in the house sometimes so we picked up Chinese take-out last night. No way was I going to cook.
