Happy Homemaker Monday - 01/18/20167:52 AM
Good morning everyone, Happy Monday!!!
It was one of those weekends that just flew right by, I thought it was still Friday and here we are again, thankfully though, it's a holiday for us here in the States and so there's no school or work. I get an extra day to relax and get some painting done.
Let's see what we have planned for the week ahead.
Beautiful morning, clear blue skies and the sun is shining brightly. We had snow on Saturday morning but the rest of this week it is supposed to be sunny and clear.
Right now I am:
In the green living room, sitting at the dining table and typing up this post. Still in my pj's though because we got to sleep in today. I do have my coffee next to me too.
About what I want to get done today, which is painting. I really want to get everything in the living room painted, all the DVD shelves and wall shelves etc.
On my reading pile:::
The two library books I picked up and the Old West Women, which I started yesterday and am already really enjoying, it's just my kind of book.
On my tv:::
Have a new show that started on PBS last night, also a period drama called Mercy Street, it is a Civil War piece and I am really looking forward to watching it here shortly.
Things that make me happy:::
The old days, simplicity, homesteading, self sufficiency.
Tuesday - Beef Tips with Spaghetti noodles
Wednesday - Slow Cooked Sloppy Joes, Homemade fries
Thursday - Broccoli Cheese Soup in Homemade Bread Bowls
Friday - Meatloaf with Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans
Saturday - Homemade Pizza
Sunday - Southwest Ground Beef Casserole
On my to do list:::
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Working on the mood blanket
Looking around the house:::
Needs some serious tidying, as it always does when there's a weekend involved. Seems that everyone is so relaxed about everything and things just get left anywhere, counters are full, tables have random objects that don't belong and the 12 year old boy leaves his shoes and hoodies all over.
From the camera:::
Was looking back through some blog posts and came across this photo, I love it, and I miss my clothes line back in Arizona.
On my prayer list:::
Friends and family
Bible verse, devotional, favorite quote:::
3 You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.
