Happy Homemaker Monday - 10/26/2015


Good morning friends, I have to apologize for this post going up so late, but I have not had a chance to get it up any earlier.

My morning has been super busy and I've been on the go since 5:30am, my apologies.  Anyway, let's get this ball rolling shall we???

Feel free to use :)


The Weather:::
After a week of rain and cool temperatures, we are back to sunny skies.  The temps are staying low though which makes me super happy, matter of fact I've already started wearing my long sleeved pj's to bed.  Oh yeah, welcome Fall weather :)

Right now I am:
Sitting down in the living room with Jasmine.  She is playing a game online with her boyfriend, and I'm finally getting to type up this post.

Thinking:
About all that I need to do, I have a bit on my list.  Here's what is on my mind, in no particular order:


  • Thanksgiving Menu, who is coming over, who is not, how many of us will it be
  • Need to call to make my appointment for next month
  • I really want to catch up on some shows
  • Want to find a book to download for my Kindle, watched a show about it yesterday and am hoping I can find it.
  • Gotta make sure the kids school is caught up
On my reading pile:::
Still working through the first Nora Roberts book I downloaded
Have a cookbook that came in for review so been looking through that one

On my tv:::
Lockup Raw
The Voice Portugal
Whatever else is on the DVR

On the menu for this week:::


Monday - Beef and Wine Stew, Salad
Tuesday - Shepherd's Pie, Mixed Veggies
Wednesday - Pork Parmigiana, Spaghetti, Broccoli
Thursday -  Orange Chicken, Rice
Friday - BBQ Ribs, Fries, Baked Beans
Saturday -  Fried Chicken, Homemade Mac & Cheese, Green Beans
Sunday - Steaks with Pepper Sauce, Rice, Salad

On my to do list:::

Homemaking
Laundry
School

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::

Painting some bedroom furniture.  Our bed is black but the side tables are white and the tv cabinet is wood.  It's a mismatched bunch of craziness that is driving me insane, so I've been painting everything black to match the bed.


Looking around the house:::
It's bright....I know, weird thing to say but after the past week of rain showers and dark cloudy skies, it's like a veil was lifted and the whole house looks super bright.  I have to tidy around the living rooms today, it's always like this after the weekend, I feel like a tornado came through.

From the camera:::
My Lola, can't say no to that adorable little face



On my prayer list:::
My grandmother, for continued recovery
My daughter's boyfriend's grandmother who is also recovering from a stay in the hospital

Bible verse, Devotional:::

I made shepherd's pie last week for the first time in a while... I had forgotten how good it is.
Thanksgiving plans have been on my mind a well! We still aren't sure who's hosting so I can't start planning food until that's finalized.
Bright sunshine through the windows is soooo refreshing after days of rain.
Happy to hear your grandma is recovering hope her condition continues to improve.
Have a great week and thanks for hosting!

Your menu sounds great for the fall weather. Our bedroom is a big hodgepodge of mismatched furniture as well. Unfortunately, it is pretty low on the priority list. I hope you'll show us pictures of how your painting turns out. Have a wonderful week!
