This Week – What Week Is It?

Fave pic IMG_E4182 from Mother’s Day last week.  My mother and the boy who made me a mother.  We have had limited visits with my parents, usually for a few hours once a week.  They are retired and at home and we are at home except for a few necessities like Gage’s school work pick up and drop off, grocery store every 2-3 weeks, and occasionally the post office.  Jason will go back to his office downtown twice a week starting June 1 and we might have to re-evaluate, but by then outside visiting will be easier to do so I think we can still make it work.

Highlights of the week  Mother’s Day was lovely.  I got to sleep in and then coffee, cards, and a few gifts in bed. My mom came over and Jason went and picked up Dewey’s pizza for us.  I love that I can get gluten free crust with the pizza I love, Ryan’s Inferno.

We got the rest of our deck furniture AND had a few nice days this week to enjoy it 🙂

We’ve started using the composter we’ve had for years and Gage likes to be the one to take out our daily scraps.  One household task he doesn’t complain about, yay!

Books finished Not a one 😦  Keeping Gage off the screens has taken more effort lately.  Not to mention my new recipe a day challenge also takes extra time.

In the mail IMG_E4222 I found out that a friend from the library has written books!  He generously sent me these two and I’m excited to take a look at them this week.  And he has the best last name, right?

Currently reading  The Birth of Jesus According to the Gos… (Not what I was expecting, but more of a history of the Bible and Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John and I’ve learned so much)  The Starless Sea Still in the early chapters but it’s interesting.

Currently listening A Conspiracy in Belgravia I’m finding ways to listen to a little bit of this every day.

My review of The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

Movies The Rocket Poster The soundtrack was great, story good, but the acting outside of two main characters was cringeworthy.

Currently watching We let Gage stay up until 11 this week to watch the finale of Survivor and that was fun for him.  I think the right person won.  We’re still working on season 2 of Bosch.

New Recipe a Day Challenge.  You can follow my other blog that’s full of monthly challenges, but I’m linking to this one post here because I loved these waffles so much 🙂

Plans for the Weekend  Ohio has opened retail and outside seating at restaurants with more to open next week.  As much as I have appreciated our governor’s response so far I feel like he is rushing to reopen everything by June.  We don’t plan on changing anything here for at least a few more weeks and then we can evaluate again.  What about you?

      Based on the photos from outside bars in the area that just opened this weekend I’m guessing that the numbers will spike and we’ll be stuck at home most of the summer 😦

    What a great picture of your Mom and Gage! Love it. We have not gone to a restaurant yet for indoor seating – we’re at 25% at this point. We have picked up curbside and to-go restaurant food all along and will continue to do that. Makes a bit of change-up for us and also support our local places. Gyms will open this coming Monday, but my husband says he’s not going anytime soon. The restrictions are pretty complicated, plus you can’t use the showers or locker rooms. And you have to wear gloves all the time and masks. Can’t think how that would work. Hope you have a good week!

      Surprisingly our governor says pools and kids camps can open June 1st. There is no way that there will be social distancing there. I feel sad that Gage will miss his many summer camps, but not going to risk it right now 😦 Means I’ll have to come up with extra fun at home 🙂

    I love the photo of your mom and Gage! Some restaurants and stores are opening here and even though I’d love to go to inside and sit down at a restaurant I won’t for a couple more weeks and then see how things are going.

    Have a great week!

    What a great pic of your mom and Gage, frame-worthy for sure! We’re opening up slowly and my husband and I will cautiously go out when we have to. Otherwise, we have visits with our daughter and her family (kids are ages 2, 4 and 6) a few times a week. It’s hard because we live close to each other and were used to daily visits. But we all remain healthy so we’ll keep doing things the way we’ve been doing them. I’m going to check out your waffles post. Have a good week – hopefully with a lot of time spent on your patio!

    • stacybuckeye says:

      The patio furniture has made all the difference! We were all out there together reading or playing with the iPad (hmmmm, wonder which one that was, lol). I ‘m glad that you’ve been able to have visits with the adorable littles 🙂

    Since I’ve had this cough, I’ve taken special precautions to avoid any sort of contact with others. We had drive-by Easter and Facetime Mother’s Day, but it’s all good. You are so fortunate that you are able to be with your parents.

    I read Starless Sea last week. I will be very curious to see what you think. For me, it was a bit of the Emperor has no clothes, but I tend to get impatient with things easily these days.

    A Recipe a Day Challenge sounds like something my husband wishes I’d do. We are definitely cooking more now and we are eating healthier food.

    I hope you have a good week.

    • stacybuckeye says:

      I’m still early in Starless Sea but need to get it done since my book group is in a few days! We are fortunate that my parents are close and we are able to visit for sure. Summer will be easier when we can be outside too.

    I can identify with ” What Week is IT” but for me I don’t even know what day it is half the time. I love a good gluten-free pizza too and haven’t had one in a while. Restaurants, stores like Homegoods, Ross, etc. are opening up tomorrow. I’ll be staying home for a while yet to see what happens.. A little scary.. Have a good and safe week.

    Waffles aren’t common here, I think I’ve had them once at a hotel buffet. Our government is aiming for most of the country to be ‘open’ by the end of July but we are in a very different place to you, your governments decisions are difficult to fathom.
    I hope you find more time to read this week!

    • stacybuckeye says:

      Your government sounds like they have a plan. Ours? Every state for themselves and good luck! 😦 It’s stressful. I wasn’t a big waffle fan, until I made these.

    Whoops, it looked like my computer deleted half a sentence. What I meant to say was I read a review of STARLESS SEA and it looks good so I’m considering adding it to my TBR.

    Cute pic. We are cautious about the openings …. and will continue to stay clear for awhile … wearing masks in public places seems right at this point. Stay well.
