Good morning everyone, can you believe it's Monday already?
I'm feeling kinda tired today, just feel like I didn't get good sleep the whole weekend, either Bella was keeping us up or it was my allergies making it impossible to breathe, or it was hot and we couldn't get comfortable. Oh boy!!
Anyway, it's time for Happy Homemaker Monday, I'm using one of my older ones for inspiration this morning, I just needed a bit a of a change.
Breakfast time....what is on the plate this morning::::
For the moment, just a big cup of coffee with Hazelnut Creamer. I'm not sure what I'll have to eat but when I get up out of bed and into the kitchen, I'll probably have some toast with apricot jam.
On today's to do list::::
Laundry - Did most of the laundry yesterday, today I have to to put it all away, iron some and do a load of Bella's bed stuff.
Clean and tidy the house
Sophie Kinsella "I've got your number"
On the TV today::::
Orange is the New Black (almost done with season 2)
The weather outside is::::
At the moment 50 degrees though inside my house it feels much cooler than that. We are hitting a high of 84 later this afternoon.
On the menu this week::::
Monday - Portuguese Steak, Fries, Egg, Salad
Tuesday - Breaded Fried Tilapia, Tomato Rice, Mixed Veggies
Wednesday - Chicken Enchiladas, Mexican Rice
If I have a few minutes to myself, I will::::
Probably read my book, or watch a show on the laptop
New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::::
Oh my gosh, I haven't tried anything new in a very long time. It's not easy to do when you have so many people to feed, because usually with new recipes I have to buy more ingredients, and there's also the fact that it may not turn out well and it would be such a waste.
In the garden::::
I planted a bunch of herbs the other day and they are already starting to grow. I'm not putting them outside, I've decided to keep them inside, just need to figure out how or where, but I'm thinking I'll look on Pinterest for some inspiration.
Favorite photo from the camera::::
Owl at the Renaissance Faire
Keep a menu book. I have a notebook that I bought, every two weeks when I meal plan, I write it in the notebook on one page and then on the next I write the grocery list. It has helped me get inspiration for when I'm meal planning, but I also like looking back through the different months or even to the year before to see what we were eating.
Visiting with Blog friends (blog you want to share, blog post that caught your eye)::::
I haven't visited anyone in a very long time, I'm horrible at that. So, I don't have a specific blog or blog post to share with you, but you can go on over to my side bar and find the ones I follow, they're all written by wonderful ladies and I'm sure you will enjoy them.
My husband's uncle Mike is going in this morning for surgery to remove a Brain tumor. It is a highly risky and delicate surgery and he could really use all your prayers.
One of my blog readers, Tasha, also is in need of some prayers for her mom who is going in for outpatient surgery.
Bible Verse, Devotional that is resonating with me at the moment::::
"The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever."
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!
