Happy Homemaker Monday - 08/17/20157:40 AM
Good morning, welcome to another Happy Homemaker Monday.
Hope you all had a good, rested weekend and were able to recharge for the week ahead. My weekend was extremely busy, full of people and I'm exhausted to be quite honest, but it's a good kind of tired. I have a lot going on this week, school and other stuff, not to mention getting the house back to normal after the reunion, so I better get to it.
Before that.....let's see what's going on this Monday.
On the weather front:
Beautiful morning, a bit cloudy but the sun is peeking through and only supposed to reach a high of 98. Some rain on Wednesday which will be quite nice.
On my bedside table:
A Pattern of Lies by Charles Todd
The Ones we Trust by Kimberly Belle
Broken Homes and Gardens by Rebecca Kelley
On my TV:
Here's what is on my watch list at the moment:
Vlogs - The Witt family, The Michalaks, Mrs Meldrum
Period Drama - Life in Squares
TV - The Whispers, Beyond Scared Straight, Ghost Adventures
On the menu for tonight:
Crockpot Sloppy Joes
On the menu for this week:
I need to go through my fridge and work with what I have, I still have quite a bit of food left over from the reunion so I should be able to get by for at least a week without having to go grocery shopping. I know what I'll be making today and tomorrow, but will have to come back and update the rest of the menu once I go through the refrigerator.
Monday - Crockpot Sloppy Joes
Tuesday - Chicken Korma, Rice
On my To Do List:
New Recipe I tried last week:
None, didn't have time to try anything
In the craft basket:
Still working on the blanket
Have to really kick the Cosplay into gear, only have 2 weeks to finish it all
Looking forward to:
The anime convention coming up next month, but also the fact that we are going to finally be able to catch up financially because after that outing, we have nothing else major going on.
Homemaking Tip for this week:
When having a big get together, make sure that you set a time for meals so guests know when to be ready. For this family reunion we used my chalkboard wall to write up the menus for the 4 days, plus what time each meal was etc. Everyone found it helpful not only knowing what was going to be served but at what time.

Lesson learned the past few days:
Not to get so worked up over big get togethers, the truth is that when it's family, it's FAMILY. Things don't have to perfect, everyone understands, everyone feels welcome and you just have fun.
On my Prayer List:
Family and friends
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
