Happy Homemaker Monday - 06/03/20137:32 AM
Good Morning ladies :)
Oh I am missing my blog something fierce, I can't believe the last update was on Thursday. I am just so very busy around here and time is flying, in just 3 weeks we will be on the way to Idaho. Goodness!
Anyway, on to today's Happy Homemaker Monday!
The weather.....Let's just say it's one of the reasons I will be glad to see this place in my rearview mirror. It is HOT here people, already in the triple digits and yesterday we hit 110 degrees. Gross!
Right now I am....Making a mental checklist of what I have going on today and setting aside time to come and update you all on the move and show you some pictures I took over the past few days.
Thinking....that I didn't get much sleep last night, and I'm tired and wish I could still be in bed.
On my TV.....Well, I've cancelled Dish Network so everything I had on the DVR is gone as of today, and we won't have dish either. It's only 3 weeks and we have Netflix and the internet, so we'll be fine. I have to catch up on BBC's The Tudor Court Season so that will entertain me while I pack boxes.
What I found while surfing the net....Not much, considering my internet surfing the past week has consisted of Zillow for house hunting. If you didn't know about that website I guess that would be something new???
On the menu for this week....Very very very easy food, nothing new, no recipes from cookbooks or anything like that. I am packing up much of the kitchen so I really don't have much to cook with right now, so I asked the kids and hubby to give me meal ideas for easy things, and together made the menu....
Monday - Fried Chicken with milk gravy, Mashed Potatoes
Tuesday - Fish Sticks, Potato Salad, Veggies
Wednesday - Garlic Beef and Broccoli with Rice
Thursday - Oven Chili Dogs, Fries
Friday - Crazy Pizza Bread
Saturday - Portuguese Pork Chops, and Potatoes
Sunday - Shepherd's Pie
On my to do list....
Attend a briefing with hubby
Contact local post office in Idaho for General Delivery options for mail
Book motel for trip
Call Housing Maintenance to find out when they're returning to fix my shower
Talk to realtor
In the craft basket....All my projects have been abandoned for now and I can't tell you how much I'm missing them, but alas I won't have time to touch anything for a while.
Looking forward to this week....Moving things along with the house and the move. I don't like the in betweens of moving, I am one of those people that would rather find out I'm moving today and be told I have to leave that same week so I can go and start getting my life together. hahaha
Looking around the house....There are boxes everywhere and empty walls. It doesn't look like a home anymore and that makes me feel slightly frazzled.
From the camera....
On my prayer list.....Friends and family, as always.
My husband and I, for this move to go smoothly, for the house we're buying, for the trip, for everything that is coming our way.
Bible verse, Devotional....Do you favor justice or mercy? Trick question. Both responses are technically incorrect: God's ways require mercy and justice. Mercy cannot be fully known without perfect justice, and justice without mercy is harsh and graceless.
