Happy Homemaker Monday - 10/20/20146:59 AM
Good morning friends, how are you all doing today?
It's quite early here, but hubby and I have been up on and off the whole night as Miss Bella is not feeling very well. I just wish that it was Saturday morning and not Monday morning already. This weekend especially seems to have just zipped right on by.
Right, I have my cup of coffee and menu plan on hand, so let's get right on with our HHM for today.
Breakfast time....what is on the plate this morning::::
For now just a cup of coffee to wake up. Here in about an hour I will have some oatmeal with some berries
Looking around the house::::
It is dark save for a few candles here and there. My house is actually clean and tidy and aside from dishes in the sink that need to be put in the washer, I don't have much to do.
On today's to do list::::
Laundry.....Have a load of towels in the washer right now, then need to switch those to the dryer and start a load of doggie blankets. Everything else was done this weekend.
Cleaning.....In the kitchen, I need to unload the dishwasher and load the dishes in the sink. Also need to sweep and mop the floors. In the living room, just need to vacuum the rug because the dogs are still shedding (ugh), also want to sweep and mop the wood floors. In the bedrooms I have to make the beds and tidy up a bit, also need to vacuum and carpet clean my bedroom. I did Jasmine's and Nic's yesterday. In the bathrooms, need to wash the tub in the upstairs bathroom and the toilets in both upstairs and downstairs.
Homeschooling.....prepare today's lessons. Look over the girl's lessons and see how they are doing. My Jasmine is going for her PSAT on Wednesday so we'll be doing a little preparing for that. Please tell me how in the heck I am sitting here waiting to take my little baby girl for her PSAT? Wasn't she just running around the other day preparing for Kindergarten?
Crocheting.....Made myself a slouchy hat and some ear warmers. Have another 3 ear warmers to make for my daughter, niece and sister in law. Also need to work on some boot cuffs and some infinity scarves for my niece and sister in law, for Christmas. Started another slouchy hat for me using up my leftover pink soft yarn that I used last year for my infinity scarf. I'll take a picture today and show you.
Cooking....Lunch will be Soup and sandwiches. Dinner is Chicken with Carrots and Tomato Sauce, rice and Salad.
The Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. Finished the first book and have started the second.
On the TV today::::
-- Portuguese Soaps - Mulheres, Mar Salgado
-- Haven from last week
-- Downton Abbey from yesterday
-- Youtube Vlogs
The weather outside is::::
Not as chilly this morning, it is currently 55 degrees and the highest today will be 79, so definitely cooling down a lot. Also supposed to get some showers this week which I am always looking forward to.

New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::::
Last week I tried a Pepperoni Pull Apart Garlic Knots, I will share the recipe sometime today on my food blog.
One of my simple pleasures::::
Watching mommy vloggers on Youtube
Favorite photo from the camera::::
Visiting with Blog friends (blog you want to share, blog post that caught your eye)::::
I really enjoy the blog A Little Bit Country :)
Family and friends
Bible Verse, Devotional that is resonating with me at the moment::::
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
