I expected there to be a bit of an adjustment period with my coming home from the working world. This past week has been fabulous in the fact that I am no longer punching a time-clock, but at the same time I feel a bit adrift and disconnected from my home. As August is coming to a close, I am looking forward to September and hopefully cooler temperatures.
This morning I noticed that the leaves are beginning to fall from the trees and that the humdity has been low in the early hours. It is so pleasant out I think I should begin my day's work in the yard before the temperature climbs in the afternoon as it typically does.
I am finding myself longing for the heartier Autumn meals and baking. Are you? I would like to put together a list of menus to take the agony out of meal-planning each week.
While working, coupon-clipping was non-existant for me, so I am anxious to put that back into practice and save a little money at the grocery store. I also want to check out the PX, since we are military, to compare prices with our local stores. It just may be worth the trip.
With Autumn approaching, I am feeling the need to stock the larder. I find it so satisfying to be well-stocked in meats and non-perishable foods. I neglected doing so while working, so I must get back to this once again.
Daily I need to write down my cleaning goals for the day, lest I fritter away my time as I am prone to do. Best to plan my work and work my plan I dare say!
Have a wonderful afternoon!
