Happy Homemaker Monday - 07/15/20137:52 AM
Missed Happy Homemaker Monday last week as we didn't have internet up yet, but boy am I glad to be back this morning :)
I am hoping you all had a fabulous weekend and an even better work and school week ahead.
On to today's list.......
The weather.....Seems the triple digits are back this week and I'm not exactly thrilled, I mean, I did come to Idaho to get away from those temps right? LOL
This is what it looks like, not TOO horribly bad I guess, compared to 119.
Right now I am....Enjoying my morning cup of coffee, sitting on the couch typing this up and listening to hubby sitting next to me as he checks his facebook and tells me the funnies listed on.
Thinking....About next week when my brother and his family arrive in the States, I am so happy and excited though I know that this is a bittersweet and terribly hard moment for them having to leave family and friends and everything behind.
On my reading pile....Two books on raising chickens, Traditional Kitchen Wisdom and a few Amish fiction.
On my TV.....My Portuguese soaps and a few shows online to catch up on.
What I found while surfing the net....British Corner Shop, online store where I can find a myriad of products from England. *sigh*
On the menu for this week....So happy to say that I did make a menu plan and can now get back to normal cooking and shopping. Nothing like being forced away from it for almost two months to really appreciate it. For today I am going to throw in a chili into the crockpot as I still have to go grocery shopping.
Monday - Crockpot Chili
Tuesday - Turkey Breasts with Bacon, Potatoes au Gratin
Wednesday - Beach Street Lemon Chicken with homemade fettucine
Thursday - Meatloaf, Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Veggies
Friday - Crispy Cheddar Chicken w/ Basmati Rice
Saturday - Runza Casserole w/ Salad
Sunday - Fish Fillets with Cilantro Sauce, Butter Rice and peas
On my to do list....
Laundry, it's all been washed and folded just have to put it away
Finish the girl's bedroom
Need to buy two more dressers and a video storage cabinet of some sort
Post Office Run
In the craft basket....Dishcloths for the Etsy store. Been making a few as I have time and it's felt so good to get back to my crochet and knitting.
Looking forward to this week....Getting my house completely finished, and getting ready for my family to arrive next week.
Looking around the house....It's mostly done, like I said just have a few things still laying around that I need to put away, but it's no longer packed with boxes of all kind. My husband is playing one of his space games on Facebook, the pugs are snoring next to us, Miss Lola with me and Miss Bella with hubby. Kids are still asleep and the sun is shining through the kitchen deck door....so peaceful :)
From the camera....
On my prayer list.....
My brother and sister in law as they get ready to leave their whole lives behind and embark on a new journey in the States.
My stepmother and father, after almost 34 years of marriage they are getting separated and it's heartbreaking for me :(
Bible verse, Devotional....
“As surely as God lives, who has denied me justice,
the Almighty, who has made my life bitter,
3 as long as I have life within me,
the breath of God in my nostrils,
4 my lips will not say anything wicked,
and my tongue will not utter lies.
5 I will never admit you are in the right;
till I die, I will not deny my integrity.
6 I will maintain my innocence and never let go of it;
my conscience will not reproach me as long as I live. - Job 27 1:6
