THIS WEEK WITH DEE
How about an upbeat soul vibe for our background music this week? And doesn’t that picture make you wish you were at the beach? Sigh…

IN MY HOME:
REVIEW OF LAST WEEK
I did a pretty good job keeping up with the daily “homekeeping” last week and most days was able to fit in a weekly cleaning task as well. We went out of town over the weekend and I was pleased to have been able to leave the house in relatively good shape. Did I get floors mopped? No. But there’s always this week, right?
I have a couple of meetings this week but as far as I know, nothing on the weekend. It’s going to be around 100 degrees so I’m sure we won’t be planning any outdoor excursions. Hopefully I’ll get the house in really good shape Saturday and Sunday. That may be my last opportunity to really focus on the house before our music festival in August.
Between now and AdaFest (August 20/21) I’ll be busy on social media and marketing. If I can get one blog post done a week I’ll consider that a win.
I finished Someday in Paris. It was a fun story. I can’t say it was extremely well-written but I did enjoy it. I’ve started the July book club selection– Writers & Lovers: A Novel – but haven’t gotten far enough to be able to say how well I will like it.
I didn’t play the piano even once last week so I’m keeping that as my self-care focus this week. Hopefully I’ll do better this time!
HEALTH AND FITNESS
I’m having issues with heartburn, reflux and some related problems. I have a couple of ideas about what may be causing this so I’m doing some experimenting this week.
We had a very nice weekend in OKC. Our original plans fell though but we still got to spend the night at our favorite OKC hotel – The Skirvin. And then on Sunday we went to the OKCMOA to see the current Painters of Pompeii exhibit. It was pretty incredible.
We’ve had really lovely weather this summer…until now. It’s going to be too hot to spend much time outdoors so we’ll turn our attention to indoor activities. Hopefully we’ll work in at least two movies. Any favorites to recommend?
HABIT OF THE WEEK
I am going to refocus on my morning ritual. I’ve allowed other people’s “urgent” to overtake my time first thing in the morning. I’m going to try putting my laptop back in my office each night when I go to bed so I’ll be less likely to sucked into work tasks before I’ve done my morning routine.
What’s on your plan for the week ahead? Home tasks? Menu? Fun?
