Happy Homemaker Monday - 10/17/2016

Happy Monday friends!

I feel like this weekend just got away from me and we're back on a full new week ahead.  Goodness.

I've been quite busy this past week, I had intentions of coming in to say hi and put a few more posts up and then just didn't have the time, and I'll let you know why in a different post, which I'll have up after this one.  Anyway, are you ready to see what is going on in our homemaker lives?

Let's go......

The weather outside is::::
Last week we had cool temperatures and it actually felt like Fall.  The past few days however, haven't been very fall like, just a lot of wind which is making my allergies flare up.  Looks like the whole week we're looking at upper 80 degrees and sunshine.  I'm so ready for cooler days folks.

On the breakfast plate this morning::::
Was up at 6am and had a cup of coffee to wake me up.  I'm currently fixing some toast and another cup of coffee.

As I look outside my window:::
This is my view from where I sit. 

Right now I am::::
In the living room, I've watched a few youtube vlogs but took a break to get this post up.

As I look around the house::::
Need to do some carpet cleaning today and just pick up a few odds and ends, here and there, but the house is clean and tidy for the most part.

On today's to do list::::
Laundry....Have my son's and daughter's laundry to do.  They each have their own bathroom so they bring me their laundry baskets when full.
Kitchen....Need to do last night's dishes.  I never leave them but had such a headache after dinner that I couldn't even bring myself to do them.  Also need to tidy up the kitchen and clean the counters.
Homeschooling....both kids are still behind.  We were without internet for 5 days and it just completely threw them off schedule.  What a pain.
Cooking.....Lunch will be french bread pizzas.  Dinner is Chicken Korma with rice.

Happening this week::::
Monday.....Carpet cleaning, housework
Tuesday....Paint bedroom furniture
Wednesday....Wash all windows

Currently reading::::
Six Days in Leningrad, for an upcoming book review. 

On the TV today::::
Hubby and I are watching the new Supernatural that started last week.  I also want to watch a few more vlogs.

On the menu this week::::
Monday - Chicken Korma with Rice
Tuesday - Sausages with Tomato and Onion, Homemade Noodles 
Wednesday - Amish Chicken Pot Pie
Thursday - Zuppa Toscana
Friday - Enchiladas, Mexican Rice
Saturday -
Sunday -

Need to make the new menu plan, thankfully when the hubby and I were last at the commissary, the ground beef was pretty inexpensive so we picked a few extra.  I am going to go through my freezer and pantry to see what I have and what I can make with what is available.  

What I am creating at the moment::::
Working on a small little blanket for a puppy. 

New recipe I tried or want to try this week::::
The Philly Cheesesteak Star, made it last night and it was so good. 

Favorite photo from the camera::::

Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::

PLEASE, don't add links to this list that are not part of the Happy Homemaker Monday. I've asked numerous times, and I'm frankly quite tired of having to remove links to other posts that shouldn't be in this list. Please be respectful of my request!
