Happy Homemaker Monday - 08-26-2013

Good morning friends, hope you had a wonderful weekend :)

I wanted to start today but asking (once again), that only links to your Happy Homemaker Monday posts be added to Mr Linky.  I have asked this numerous times and I still find links to other posts, recipes etc on there.

It takes time to go through them all and delete them, so I am begging you please, respect my request and my blog and follow the rules.

The weather.....
We've had a bit of rain over the weekend which felt so good.  Looks like we're starting to cool down and I'm getting excited for a real Fall after so many years :)

 

Right now I am....
Drinking a cup of coffee with Vanilla Caramel Creamer....talking to my hubby about his drive to Twin Falls in about an hour.

Thinking....
That I should know better than to watch scary movies.  LOL  When I was a teen it was the fun thing to do, watch a really scary movie even knowing that it would terrify you for days.  As I've grown older I've stopped watching them because they have a way of playing on my mind when I go to sleep, and again last night it happened LOL
We all decided to watch Paranormal Entity and then the boys spent the rest of the day scaring all the girls in the house....problem is that I forgot about the movie until I woke up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and then....oh boy....Hahahahah

On my reading pile....
Still getting through my list of library books, plus I have a bunch of books coming in every day for reviews.  

On my TV.....
Hell on Wheels
True Blood - Still catching up
White Queen - Still catching up
Breaking Amish - Why do I watch this????  I can't stand reality TV, yet....


On the menu for this week....

Monday - Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan
TuesdayFettucine Alfredo
Wednesday - Broiled Parmesan Tilapia, Garlic Potatoes
Thursday - Spaghetti with Bacon
Friday -  Homemade Pizza
Saturday - Sausages with tomato sauce, rice
Sunday - Barbecue Glazed Drumsticks, Salad

On my to do list....
Laundry....finish the last load, iron, fold and put away
Homeschooling
Housework

In the craft basket....
Dishcloths, afghans, baby booties.  It's all or nothing with me LOL
  
Looking forward to this week....

Being one week closer to my husband starting his job.  He is finishing up some requirements like medicals, fingerprinting etc.

Looking around the house....
Kids are all asleep, my hubby, brother and sister in law are getting ready to head to Twin Falls.  I have a few dishes in the sink needing washing,and a little straightening up in the living room to do.     
From the camera....
We have such a cute park near our house, so Saturday we all went there just to walk around a bit and let the kids run around.


On my prayer list.....

Still the same people on my prayer list.  I have to keep reminding myself that all is done in God's timing and prayers are answered according to Him, not my wants.

Bible verse, Devotional....
For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. Romans 12:4-5 NIV

Congratulations to your hubby on getting a job! I hope it is something he will enjoy!
Reminding ourselves that all is done in Gods timing not our own can be a challenge at times can't it!

Have a blessed week! xx

Exciting news about hubby's new job starting soon! You must be thrilled. I absolutely LOVE the park pictures . . . beautiful ducks! As always your menu looks great. I do feel a bit like a slacker with regards to menu planning. Way to many "by the seat of my pants" meal plans. I look forward to trying a few recipes you linked to. Thank you for sharing. Have a blessed day! I linked up and here's my post http://totplay.blogspot.com/2013/08/random-five-on-friday-august-23.html. I hope it is okay that I link up here.

True Blood - Now I need next season (enough said) lol. And love Breaking Amish LA. Having no cable I have to wait for all the shows I watch to become "available" so I'm still waiting for Sunday's episode. Yummy looking menu plan.

Love the Happy Homemaker idea and would love to join in too, maybe starting next Monday. I've been trying to come up with new ideas to keep my blog interesting but am not much of a creative thinker in that regard. Congrats and good luck to your husband on his new job.

I hate the feeling of being scared like that so I never watch creepy scary movies. I love a good suspense show, but creepy scary just sticks with me for waaay too long.

Congrats to hubby on his job. Excited for this new phase for you guys.
