Happy Homemaker Monday - 06/13/2016

Happy Monday friends, and welcome to another start of the week with our Happy Homemaker Monday.

If I had to give you one guess of how I'm feeling, I'm sure you would all shout back in chorus "tireddddd".  Yep!!!  As always hahaha

Anyway, have a few things going on this week, so let's see what is on our HHM shall we?

The Weather:::
Cloudy and foggy this morning.  We've had beautiful hot weather the past week but yesterday had a bit of rain come down which made everything so humid and clammy.  This morning is very overcast, but not cold, it's still quite hot and humid outside and we have rain on the forecast.  Rest of the week is clear and quite hot. 


On my reading pile:::
At the moment, How Secrets Die by Marta Perry.  Review coming up on Thursday :) 


On my tv:::
Portuguese Soaps
General Hospital
Ghosts of Shepherdstown



On the menu for this week:::

Monday -  Skillet Fried Smoked Sausage and Potatoes, Steamed Mixed Veggies
Tuesday -  Texas Hash, Salad
Wednesday - Breaded Fish Fillets, Black Eyed Pea Salad, Rice
Thursday - Shepherds Pie, Salad
Friday -  Homemade Pizza
Saturday -
Sunday  -


On my to do list:::
Laundry - We'll be hopefully getting a dryer this weekend, but for the moment, I'm having to wash everything and hang it out to dry.  I don't mind really, except for the days when it's raining and it makes it quite difficult.  Did all my washing yesterday so today I just have to iron. 
Kitchen - Usual clean up, load and unload the dishwasher etc., sweep and mop floors.
Living rooms - Tidy up, vacuum, dust.



What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Ok so here's the deal, I am not starting to get very irritated with myself for not having anything going on.  I decided that I  HAVE to pull out my blanket I'm working on and really get going with it.  Also have our little cousin's 1st Birthday party coming up in July and I'm thinking I should crochet a few super cute things for her, I'll have to go look on Pinterest.


Looking around the house:::
It's so dark, it feels like night time. 



From the camera:::
Pretty flowers




On my prayer list:::
**My grandmother.  She is once again in the hospital and this time there really isn't anything the doctors can do.  She has heart failure, renal failure, double pneumonia and senile dementia.  I tried to talk to her on the phone a few days ago and it broke my heart, she didn't even recognize me and just babbled some strange things.  It was really hard.  Doctors have said that the pneumonia is not responding to the medication and it's just a matter of time :(   At this point, I'm not praying for her to get better, she is very old, she is tired, her body is tired and I truly feel it's time for her to let go and be at peace, as much as that will hurt me, but I just can't be selfish.  My prayer is that she goes soon and goes peacefully.
**My brother. He went for an interview last week, and this Wednesday they want him to go back in to see how he does (it will be at a car dealership working parts department which is something he loves), after that the usual background checks etc and if everything goes well he will start working full time the following Monday.  Please pray with us that this is the job for him, he really feels frustrated right now.
**My daughter.  As she continues her journey through the horrible depths of anxiety and depression.
**Our country.  This hate filled mentality that is taking over the world, that is killing innocent people and depriving families of their loved ones.  My heart breaks for these victims and their families.
