I'm not sure if I'll be able to post a Happy Homemaker Monday next week, I should be able to as we'll already be in our new house, so you may have a new post all the way from Texas :)
If I don't have internet up yet or something has come up, then I'll try to update you as soon as possible.
The weather in my neck of the woods:
Rainy rainy day, for a few days now and today it's cloudy again and we're expecting more. I don't mind it, I do like the weather, it just becomes a little frustrating when trying to pack up the moving trailer.
Things that make me happy:
Knowing that I'm going to see my husband on Friday and that this long wait is finally over.
Menu for this week:
I don't have a menu, we're eating the last of the food that is in the fridge/freezer and pantry, so it will be a lot of simple meals.
What's on my TV today:
Hopefully some down time tonight to watch my Portuguese soaps on the computer and some vlogs. I am not sure if I'll have time though, so we'll play it by ear.
Looking around the house:
It's empty, there are only a few boxes left to be packed into the truck and also a few items that I'm not taking with me and going to try and sell this week.
On my To Do List:
Finish packing the truck
New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:
I would love to try some good food cooked by me, honestly. I miss being in my kitchen and cooking real meals, I've about had enough of sandwiches and hotdogs and kid friendly stuff.
In the craft basket:
Yarn, and the basket is in the truck so yeah, nothing.
Looking forward to this week:
Finishing up getting the truck packed, selling remaining items, cleaning the house, relaxing at least one day and picking up my husband from the airport on Friday.
Tips and Tricks:
When packing a truck for a move, use every single nook and cranny. Stuff it with blankets, small items, stuffed toys, whatever. And pack that truck like a game of Tetris, as tight as you can.
My favorite blog post this week:
I don't have any, haven't had a chance to read anything.
Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
Again, I would suggest you take a look at my sidebar and find something on there, there are great blogs listed :)
No words needed (favorite photo or picture):
Moving trailer was only supposed to be delivered this morning, but the nice driver dropped it off Friday so it's almost done packing. This is me the day it was delivered :)
Lesson learned the past few days:
That I can push through anything, that when things look overwhelming and unattainable, that all I have to do is hold on to the Lord's hand tighter and it will all seem like a little hill to walk over.
On my mind:
Oh goodness, everything about this move. I have to make sure I fit the grill and the turtle tank in that truck. I unfortunately have to leave quite a few things behind and thankfully been able to sell some and my brother and sister in law are buying a few things off me too. Makes me sad, but you know, as long as I have the essentials in there that is what matters.
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. - Isaiah 40:28
