Happy Homemaker Monday - 02/16/2015

Good morning everyone.  I want to start by apologizing for my blooper last week when I forgot to add in the linky.  Oops!!!  I have never done that and I clearly wasn't thinking clearly, so apologies.

I hope you've all had a good weekend, mine has been very quiet and sad, but not too bad otherwise.  I have a lot of things coming up this week, quite a few reviews for you all and some daily blogging too....yay!!!

For now though, let's get on with our Happy Homemaker Monday post.

The weather outside is::::
It's 32 degrees and collllldddddd.  It's pretty icy out there and to be honestly I am quite ready for spring weather and summer. 

On the breakfast plate this morning::::
A cup of coffee with Spiced Rum Cake creamer and two pieces of toast.  You know what I hate?  Soggy toast!  It is just gross, but I'm impatient and as soon as it's out of the toaster I slather on the butter and then it becomes a soggy mess.  BLECH!!!

As I look outside my window:::
Beautiful morning, the skies are blue and the sun is shining.  If it weren't for this cold I would have gone outside to enjoy my coffee.

Right now I am::::
Typing up this post while waiting for my hubby to call me back.  He had to go for a physical this morning before he starts his job tomorrow, so he had me on the phone with google maps giving him directions to the hospital in Texas.  LOL  At one point he said to me "well honey, if I get lost at least I have YOU on the phone to keep me company". 

As I look around the house::::
I will take some pictures to show you in my post later, but I've been packing and boxing things up and this house is starting to look quite empty.  I don't mind it though because I'm purging a LOT of things for this move, I'm quite tired of dragging things around that either don't ever get out of the boxes they were moved in, or makes the house look cluttered. 

On today's to do list::::
Laundry....Have a load to put away, and one load to wash, plus some comforters and the bed linens.    
Cleaning....Need to mop and vacuum.  Usual housework, dishes and bathrooms etc.

Currently reading::::
Book for review, it will be up next week.

On the TV today::::
Not sure yet, but I've got a few shows I've been wanting to catch up on so may just do that.

On the menu this week::::

Monday - Pork stir fry, rice
Tuesday -  Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Wednesday - Honey Mustard Chicken Fingers, Fries
Thursday - Tuna Salad
Friday - Bowtie Chicken Alfredo
Saturday - Out to eat with the kiddos
Sunday - Turkey, Grreen bean casserole (Jasmine requested)

What I am creating at the moment::::
Want to get rid of some of my yarn, so working on more dishcloths.

New recipe I tried or want to try this week::::
Right now there is absolutely nothing new I've tried, but I do have a recipe coming up next week that I will be trying for the first time and will post it for you all.

Favorite photo from the camera::::
My gorgeous daughter, she is growing so fast.  Two months and she will be 16 years old.  Oh my!

Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::
"But what about you?" Jesus asked. "Who do you say I am?" Peter answered, "You are the Christ."
Mark 8:29

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!


  1. Beautiful picture of Jasmine!

    Prayers for Curt as he gets settled.

    I hope you have a great week.

  2. She is beautiful! That red hair is gorgeous!!!!!!! -Lou

  3. Keep hanging in there dear Lady! I guess being busy with all of those things will help the time go by faster and give you another focus.

    Just WOW on the photo of Jasmine. She's so pretty and you can tell she's a sweet soul just like her Mom.

    God bless for a good week!

  4. Hope things go well as your husband starts his new job. God be with you and your family!

  5. Hope you have a wonderful week and that the time passes quickly.

  6. Love that verse.

    Purging is the great thing about moving! Otherwise everything just piles up for years.

  7. I have been purging again also. It is hard for me to be up on my feet for long periods so time for some more things to go.

  8. Praying for you and your family as you transition to the next chapter in your life. Praying for extra strength for you while you pack :). Your daughter is absolutely beautiful, I hope she loves that red hair, it is gorgeous!! Have a great week!! xx
