Happy Homemaker Monday - 09/22/20146:54 AM
Good morning, welcome to another Happy Homemaker Monday!
I am quite tired today, couldn't fall asleep for the longest time last night, and usually I am a person who gets into bed and am out. Not sure what was going on yesterday.
You may have noticed my template change, just wanted to let you know that it's not going to stay this way. At first I quite liked it, but as the days have gone on, I find myself really disliking the whole thing, so I need to work on a new one today. I'm nuts, I know hahahah
Anyway, let's get on with our HHM, shall we?
Breakfast time....what is on the plate this morning::::
My usual cup of coffee and some toast. One of my favorite toasts is sliced french bread. I just love the crispness after it's been toasted, I don't know, but there's something about a piece of toast where you bite into and hear the crunch. I'm weird like that, I guess.
Looking around the house::::
Very quiet. My husband just left for work and it's just the pugs and I awake. It's also quite dark in here, it's a cloudy day and we had rain all night, so it's quite dreary outside, but you know me, and I love days like these.
On today's to do list::::
Laundry.....actually have laundry to do, was a very busy week and I fell behind on the clothes. Have to catch up on that today.
Cleaning.....Need to load the breakfast dishes in the dishwasher and run it. Make the beds, vacuum the bedrooms. Wipe down the counters and clean the toilets in the bathrooms.
Homeschooling.....prepare today's lessons. Jasmine has a Japanese portfolio she has been putting off because she needs to record herself speaking Japanese and she's nervous. I don't think we have a lot of work today, but the usual.
Crocheting.....Have to make myself a slouchy hat, I've made the girls and my sister in law one already. Also would like to start on the crochet pillow I saw in the magazine.
Cooking....kids have requested tuna salad for lunch, and for dinner I'm fixing Fettucine Alfredo.
The Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon.....still, and loving it.
On the TV today::::
-- Portuguese Soaps - Beijo do Escorpiao, Mulheres, Mar Salgado
-- The new show Gotham starts tonight and we want to watch it, see what we think.
-- I am also going to be watching the first episode of Downton Abbey, which premiered yesterday but I was at the Air Show and couldn't watch it live. If you want to watch the new Season and not have to wait until January for it to air here in the States, you can do so using either Expat Shield, or Hola Unblocker. Or watch it online, the episodes get posted about an hour after it airs in the UK.
-- New Haven episode.
The weather outside is::::
Cloudy and dreary, quite nippy actually.
On the menu this week::::
Seafood Subs for hubby, myself and Nicholas....Black forest ham sub for Jasmine
Slow Cooker Cubed Steaks
Honey Mustard Chicken Pasta
Breakfast for dinner (Sausages, Biscuits and Gravy)
Onion and Potato soup, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
If I have a few minutes to myself, I will::::
Start the crochet pillow or read.
New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::::
Nothing new last week, but I still have to find a few moments to post my French Bread Casserole recipe on the blog.
One of my simple pleasures::::
Favorite photo from the camera::::
Thunderbirds at the Air Show
Visiting with Blog friends (blog you want to share, blog post that caught your eye)::::
And yet another week of no blog visiting. Ugh!
Continuing to pray for our financial situation.
Hubby may have an opportunity of working on jets again, and it's something he not only loves but misses dearly, so I'm praying for that.
My brother and sister in law, they are going through a difficult time as they learn to adjust to life here in the States.
Bible Verse, Devotional that is resonating with me at the moment::::
PLEASE, don't add links to this list that are not part of the Happy Homemaker Monday. I've asked numerous times, and I'm frankly quite tired of having to remove links to other posts that shouldn't be in this list. Please be respectful of my request!
