Happy Homemaker Monday - 06/10/20138:38 AM
Good morning everyone, sure hope you had a lovely weekend and that your week ahead is a good one too :)
I'm still here, plugging along and taking life one day at a time. Can you believe that in just two weeks and a 4 days we will be on our way back to Idaho??? I am so excited :)
Anyway, on to today's Happy Homemaker Monday!
The weather.....One word....YUCK! We've been in the triple digits and not just the triple digits, but the higher triple digits, 111's and so forth. I am so ready to get out, especially when I start looking at the weather back in Idaho and they have 90 degrees, which by the way, they call a scorcher of a day LOL
Right now I am....Sitting at my dinner table, typing up this post, drinking my coffee and listening to whatever video Nicholas is watching on his laptop.
Thinking....That the Lord has been using these past few weeks to teach me some very huge lessons and that I'm finally getting to where I'm supposed to be. It's been so hard but I've held tight and have forced myself to move from my comfort zone to the scary zone of the unknown. It's a work in progress.

Hope: A Courageous Journey of Faith
Seek the Lord and Find Him
Face to Faith

On my TV.....Hulu and some other online sites have become my favorite friends. I've been able to catch up on some shows, watch the new ones as they are posted online, and even find some older ones that I never got to watch.
What I found while surfing the net....Been planning our trip back home, so I'm using Roadtrippers.com. If you've never used it, you may want to check it out, you can plan your road trip to include accommodations along the way, attractions, history, nature, shopping etc.
On the menu for this week....Still very easy meals, I have to make the menu plan for the next two weeks and it's going to consist of pretty much eating everything that is left in the fridges/freezers before the move.
Monday - Fish Sticks, Garlic Potatoes, Salad
Tuesday - Chicago Style Dogs, Chips
Wednesday - Smothered Pork Chops, Rice
Thursday - Cheesy Kielbasa Bake (makes two big pans, one will freeze for the week of the move)
Friday - Crazy Pizza Bread
Saturday - Portuguese Pork Chops, and Potatoes
Sunday -Steaks, Fries, Salad
On my to do list....
Contact local post office in Idaho for General Delivery options for mail
Finish packing the boxes that we are moving ourselves
In the craft basket....I couldn't take it anymore, so yesterday afternoon we had to run by Walmart and I picked up a pound of white yarn so I could continue with two of my blankies. I made one more granny square for my Green Granny Square Blanket and even though it was only one block, I can't tell you how much it relaxed me. Love my crochet :)
Looking forward to this week....Watching God work in our lives and in this housing situation. I am always amazed at the things He does and I have no doubt in my mind that He's doing great things with our move.
Looking around the house....Boxes, craziness, more boxes and a little more craziness. It's this limbo that makes me stress. I don't like living in a home that doesn't feel like home, if you know what I mean.
From the camera....
On my prayer list.....Myself and my husband, to continue to trust in the Lord and to continue to leave things in His capable hands. Worry, stress, all they do is steal joy and instead of enjoying the last few weeks we have in this home and town, we have been too busy being unhappy. So I'm praying constantly for the Lord to work in our hearts to change that.
