Happy Homemaker Monday - 06/22/20154:52 AM
Good morning friends and happy Monday. Yes, I'm finally back to my Happy Homemaker Monday, I apologize for the lack in posts the past few weeks.
It's been a busy weekend but I'm ready to tackle on the new week and see what is ahead, are you?
Hot and humid, two things I don't particularly care for though I'll take the heat over the humidity, any day. Here's what we have coming up this week:
Things that make me happy:
Sitting down with a good book and relaxing.
Menu for this week:
I need to go grocery shopping today so don't really have anything planned yet, have to work on the menu and the grocery list this morning. I do have some chicken thighs and I may put them in the crockpot for dinner.
What's on my TV today:
Have so many shows to catch up on, with not having internet for a while everything has been put on hold and now I am ready to sit down and crack on. I do love my shows and I watch them while doing house chores so it helps the time pass quicker.
Looking around the house:
Actually sitting in bed at the moment, typing up this post. I have my curtains and blinds open and the sun is coming in and washing the bedroom in a beautiful golden light. Early morning is my favorite time of day.
On my To Do List:
Menu Planning and grocery shopping
New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:
I have a bunch of recipes I am going to be trying out, now that I'm back to cooking full time. I will have them on the food blog as I make them.
In the craft basket:
Finally picked up my crochet again, I've missed it so much. I currently have a stripey cushion on the hook. I already have one but wanted to make another for the living room.
Looking forward to this week:
Finishing up my house, unpacking the last few boxes and really getting back into a normal routine for our family. We've been so rushed and so busy lately that it's just getting a little tiring to be honest, so I'm ready to just stop, take a breath and relax.
Tips and Tricks:
When moving to a new State, look at it as a fun adventure and not a scary change in your life. Take a look around, research your new area online, take a drive and see what the locals have to say, you'll be surprised at the fun things you can find out.
My favorite blog post this week:
Nothing yet, haven't started reading the blogs and replying to anyone, hoping to start again this week.
Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
Ask me next week, I'm sure I'll have something for you :)
No words needed (favorite photo or picture):
Love this guy
Lesson learned the past few days:
That life is so short and that time flies by at the blink of an eye. Having been away from all family for so many years and then seeing everyone again, makes you realize just how things change.
On my mind:
At the moment I would say the kid's schooling. Trying to get them enrolled for the next year and still juggling the whole Texas Connections thing. Just want to get it all taken care of finalized so that I can really relax and enjoy the rest of summer.
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Lord, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress.
– Isaiah 33:2 (NIV)
