Happy Homemaker Monday - 02/02/2015


Good morning everyone.

Well, here we are, February.  Is that even possible when it feels like just a few days ago we were celebrating Christmas?

So yeah, the month of January for me has been a bit of a blur, it's sped by and I have found myself not really knowing what to do with my blog, hence the lack of actual posts.  But, starting today, that is changing, I am back to blogging daily, and continuing to journal everything about this crazy journey that we are about to embark on, again.

Right, so let's get on with it.....



The weather outside is::::
We've had foggy mornings, and last night we got some light rain, but for the most part it's been clear and sunny and I like it that way. 

On the breakfast plate this morning::::
Cup of coffee with Butter Toffee Creamer (one of my faves).  I don't know if I'm actually going to have any breakfast this morning, I used to love breakfast but have found that lately I just don't eat it and sometimes only really eat something mid afternoon.  Totally bad, and I need to fix that. 

As I look outside my window:::
It's been getting brighter earlier and I am very happy about that.  It's quite pretty outside this morning, the sun is starting to rise, there are a few clouds in the sky but it makes for quite a lovely sight over the mountains. 

Right now I am::::
On the couch with my Lola snoring next to me.  I'm typing up this post and I'm trying to think of what all I have to do today, which I know will include laundry at some point in time, doesn't it always???


As I look around the house::::
Guess what is in the corner of the living room???  Boxes.  AGAIN!   Lord give me strength, I am so tired of moving my belongings around, so I hope this is the last time for a long while. 


On today's to do list::::
Laundry....Thought I was done and now I have another two loads ready to go in.  Why, oh why can't we be nudists?  
Cleaning....Usual housework
Cooking.....Pizza for lunch, Stuffed Green Peppers for dinner. 

Currently reading::::
My book for review finally came in, so I'm starting on that one today.  


On the TV today::::
Have a few series I want to catch up on.


On the menu this week::::
Monday - Stuffed Green Peppers
Tuesday - Loaded Potato Soup, Olive Garden Breadsticks
Wednesday - Oven Chili Dogs
Thursday - Scalloped Potatoes and Ham
Friday - Homemade Pizza
Saturday - Bacon Spaghetti
Sunday - Sausage Gravy Biscuit Bake


What I am creating at the moment::::
Boxes of things......yes, that is the extent of my creativity at the moment.

I will be taking photos of my crochet projects today, and tomorrow I will have a post up with what I'm selling, so if you're interested in any of my goodies, keep an eye out for that post.


New recipe I tried or want to try this week::::
Didn't try anything new last week, but don't let that stop you from checking out my food blog.  You can look back through the archives and I'm sure you will find something yummy to try, maybe even a little Portuguese cooking?  Or, if you are in the middle of menu planning, my menus might give you some idea :)


Favorite photo from the camera::::



Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
John 10:10

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!

Good morning Sandra dear Gal!

I loved your laundry comment and almost did a spit-take with my coffee on the nudist thing!! Lol!!

Still praying that things will go smoothly for you in these days ahead. Keep leaning on Him for strength and know you have many others supporting and caring about you - sending you strong thoughts.

Have a great week! xoxo

It is so nice that the days are getting longer. I first noticed it during my afternoon walk last week.

Yes! Laundry! It never ends! I remember my mom saying the same thing when I was little & now I finally get it! ;)

I'd really like to try that banana recipe you posted last week if I can just find some time when I'm not working to do it! Hope you have a wonderful and peaceful week.
