Happy Homemaker Monday - 01/16/20178:55 AM
Good morning friends, hope you've had a wonderful, blessed weekend :)
The rain is finally dwindling down here in North Texas, goodness it's been ongoing for a few days and the mixture of rain and ice has made things quite yucky around here.
I don't have a lot planned for today, but usual homemaking and the sort, so let's see what today brings.

Cloudy at the moment, still all wet outside from the crazy storms we've had, but we're looking at dry weather for the rest of the week. 41 degrees right now and the rest of the week we'll be in the high 50's and 60's.
On my reading pile:::
Finally made it to the library and these are the books I picked up. I'm starting on "And the trees crept in", today.
On my TV:::
Not sure, there are so many shows I want to get through and just not enough time in the day, but I am pretty certain I'll find something to watch while I do my housework. I don't know how you all do it, but I find it so much easier when I have my laptop near me and I can pop in something to watch while I do dishes, or cook etc.
On the menu for this week:::
I am going to be menu planning today, I have meals until Friday and then Saturday morning I'll be grocery shopping. I'm trying to cut back a bit on our grocery budget since now we have to say $3000 until April for our taxes. Blech!!!
Monday - Beef Curry
Tuesday - Old Fashioned Sloppy Joe Sliders, Potato wedges
Wednesday - Grilled Tilapia, Rice, Salad
Thursday - Rissois with Fries
Friday - Chicken Sandwiches, Potato Salad
On my to do list:::
Laundry......Washing kid's bed linens
Living rooms.....tidying up, vacuuming
Bedrooms......strip kid's beds. Make my bed. Vacuum all bedrooms
Bathrooms.....toilets, sinks, bathtubs, mop
Homeschooling.....no school today
Blogging.....Happy Homemaker Monday post, How to make the most of your appliances
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
I'm still working on the Demelza, but actually wanting to start another Sophie because I enjoyed the last one so much.
Looking around the house:::
Needs a bit of TLC this morning, but only because we had family over for dinner last night and so it always gets a bit out of control, lots of dishes to do etc.
From the camera:::
Something fun to share:::
I came across a super fun site. If you're looking for fun things or interesting things to do around your state, then go check out Only in Your State. It will give you tons of information on some of the most visited or interesting places to visit.
What I'm wearing today:::
Black jeans, checked black and white shirt, black flats.
One of my simple pleasures:::
Reading blogs, but old blogs like the kind of blogs we had when we first started on this blogging journey. I am not liking the new blogs, they're too business like, it's all about telling people how to blog and what to talk about, competition, who makes more money. Just not what I enjoy. Matter of fact I came across one giving some blog ideas for posts and one of the ideas was "Rant or bash a blog". Like really???? Come on!!!
Bible verse, Devotional:::
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Read Isaiah 41
