Happy Homemaker Monday - 07/29/2013

I can't believe it's already Monday again, this week has just flown by.

Hoping you all had a good week and that this one ahead is just as good and productive as the last :)

I'm missing my blog something fierce and I am trying to get settled into a routine now that my family is here, so that I can return and blog daily as I always have.  Won't be long, I promise.  Alrighty, on to today's HHM. 

Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather.....I can't tell you how much I love summer in Idaho.  Looks like this week we'll be in the higher 90's which is just fine with me :)  Loving this summer, it's hot but it's nothing like Arizona heat.  Have a great week coming up, mostly in the 90's.

Right now I am....Laying in bed, my hubby is snoring next to me, the pugs are snoring at my feet.  I decided to go ahead and get the Happy Homemaker post up before I get up so that I don't get distracted doing other stuff and forget about it.

Thinking....About what I need to get done today.  My niece and nephew will be trying Connections Academy too so I am helping them get registered.

On my reading pile....Nothing right now, haven't had a chance to grab my Kindle or any book.  But I do have to return the library books and have a few on hold that I will grab, so I'll start reading as soon as I get those.

On my TV.....So behind on everything, haven't watched TV at all this past week so I know I have a lot of shows to catch up on.

What I found while surfing the net....I'm leaving this one blank today as I really haven't been on the computer, so I have nothing to share.  

On the menu for this week....Have to go grocery shopping on Thursday so only have meals planned until then.   

Monday - Italian Beef Sandwiches
Tuesday -  Roast Chicken and Potatoes
Wednesday - Homemade Cheesy Garlic and Pepperoni Pizza
Thursday -
Friday -
Saturday -
Sunday -

On my to do list....
Have a load of laundry to finish, fold and put away.  Also have a load to iron.
Run by bank to get a form notarized
Return books to library

In the craft basket....My dishcloths were set aside this week as I welcomed the family.  You know how that goes, but I need to pick them back up and get right into it.  Have a few ready for sale so I'll be listing those here this week :) 

Looking forward to this week....Getting back into a routine, helping my family get settled and grabbing my crochet hook again.  

Looking around the house....More like looking around the bedroom.  The sun is shining through one of the windows and it looks gorgeous :)  There are two baskets of laundry in the corner, one is already folded and the other needs folding.
From the camera....
The kids have been taking the dogs for walk every evening, they just love it :)

On my prayer list.....
My brother and sister in law as they make this huge change.  It's not easy and they are loving it but are also struggling to adapt to the way things are done here.  I pray that they are able to find jobs and get their lives on track, it's what they've always wanted :)
My husband as he starts job hunting this week.

Bible verse, Devotional....
Lord, the Lord Almighty, may those who hope in you not be disgraced because of me; God of Israel, may those who seek you not be put to shame because of me.
– Psalm 69:6 (NIV)
