Happy Homemaker Monday - 10/12/20157:42 AM
Happy Monday morning friends.
Hope you've all had a fantastic weekend, mine was actually pretty good all things considered. I know it's Columbus Day, but our school is still in session so the kids don't get a day off, bummer. We will be having our Fall Break on Thursday and Friday though, not as long as previous schools like in Arizona and Idaho, but nonetheless, we will enjoy it :)
Alrighty, let's get on with our HHM today....Oh and my goodness, I just realized I completely forgot Cooking Thursday last week, this is what happens when I haven't done it in forever and try to start it up again. UGH!!!
The weather in my neck of the woods:
68 at the moment and beautiful blue clear skies. The rest of the week looks like we'll be in the low 90's so not exactly Fall weather around here yet, but hopefully soon.
Things that make me happy:
Researching history. No really, I'm a history buff and love it so much, I end to find a subject that fascinates me and just dive right in.
Book I'm reading:
I have two more books coming in for review and one I'm so excited about because it is a cookbook and I'll be reviewing over on the food blog, BUT I will also review it here. It is filled with Christmas recipes and I'm very much looking forward to it.
Pan Bagnat (Big Sandwich)
On my To Do List:
Laundry, wash everything
Nothing new last week but I was on Pinterest last night pinning a few recipes that I want to try, because I'm menu planning and really want some new things on the menu
Fall Break on Thursday and Friday
I've actually been cleaning and tidying up as I go so the house is pretty well put together. I do need to clean up the usual "after the weekend" things.
I would have to say my favorite last week was finding and participating in Amy's Five on Friday, so many good posts and fun lists to read. Go on over and take a look yourself, and not just that post, but all of Amy's posts, I love reading her blog.
One of my favorite vloggers is Libby Withnall, she is in Australia and I just love watching her. She has a beautiful house and is so down to earth, just love her.
Lesson learned the past few days:
I'm constantly learning lessons, isn't that the beauty of life?
