Happy Homemaker Monday #446:47 AM
Monday morning again. Sure does come by pretty fast doesn't it?
Had a good but busy weekend again, I am thinking that I need a weekend to actually do nothing, go nowhere, and just relax....yes I believe it will be this coming weekend.
Feel free to use :)
It's been pretty cool this past week, we've had some nice cold weather, but alas this week we are going back up to the 80's. Ugh!
Right now I am:
Enjoying my coffee and thinking about what I have to do today.
That I need to get my Turkey out of the deep freezer. Also have a lot of things swirling in my mind, mainly about what all I need to get done and what is coming up this week etc.
On my reading pile:::
Currently reading "Captive Trail" by Susan Page Davis.
Also reading a bunch of cookbooks.
On my tv:::
Two new series that premiered last night in the UK.
The first is The Secret of Crickley Hall on BBC. If you like ghostly, paranormal shows be sure to check this one out.
The second is Grand Hotel on Sky Arts. It has been dubbed the Downton Abbey of Spain and looks really good.
On the menu for this week:::
Monday - Baked Parmesan and Provolone Spaghetti
Tuesday - Thanksgiving at the Zoo with the Homeschool
Wednesday - Family Favorite Cheese Pizza
Thursday - Thanksgiving - Deep Fried Turkey, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Corn Bread Sage Stuffing, Gravy, Cranberry Sauce (canned because that's how my husband and daughter like it, BLECH), Sweet Potato Casserole, Pumpkin Bars, Pecan Pie
Friday - Leftovers
Saturday - Shepherd's Pie
Sunday - Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes w/ Salad
On my to do list:::
Tons of laundry, yet again. Sometimes I wonder if the clothes don't climb out of the dressers in the middle of the night and throw themselves in the dirty laundry basket. Annoying.
Have a review and giveaway to put up today, the winner will win an assortment of Libby's fruit and veggies AND a KitchenAid Slow Cooker. :)
Have a ton of fruit cake to bake so that I can feed them for a few weeks before mailing out as gifts.
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Tons and tons of dishcloths. Some are going out as gifts, some are for myself and some are to give to you wonderful readers :)
With Christmas just around the corner, one of the things we are doing this year is that we have decided that at least one of the gifts we give each other, HAS to be homemade. It doesn't matter what age your kids are, get them involved, let them decide what they want to make for each family member and then set them free to use their imagination. My kids are SO excited to be making something for each other and for hubby and I, and honestly, I think those are the gifts I'm looking forward to the most :)
Looking around the house:::
It's dark right now, only light on is the lamp on my desk. Hubby just left for work, kids are asleep.
Living room needs a little picking up as is usual after the weekend.
From the camera:::
On my prayer list:::
My friend Nancy's husband Ray who is in the hospital dealing with some heart problems.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
A fool spurns his father's discipline, but whoever heeds correction shows prudence.
