Happy Homemaker Monday - 07/25/2016

Good morning everyone.

I want to start by thanking each and every one of you who left such sweet and kind comments on my Lola post.

We're still in shock, still grieving and I'm finding it extremely hard to get through the past few days.  I know it will take time but she was everything to me, and she's left such a huge hole in my heart.  :(

This is my first Happy Homemaker Monday without her laying next to me, and quite frankly, it sucks it hurts, it's just a really sad feeling.

Anyway, let's see what we have going on this week. 

The Weather:::
Sunny and hot.  Actually haven't had a good rainy day for a few weeks, but it looks like there may be some heading our way on Wednesday, Thursday and then Saturday.  Let's see how that goes. 

On my reading pile:::
With everything that has been going on, I ended up not putting up my review for The Daredevil Snared, but I'll have that up for you later today.  

On my tv:::
Portuguese Soaps
General Hospital
The American West
The Ghosts of Shepherdstown

On the menu for this week:::
Have meals planned until Thursday which is our pay day.  I have to work on the new menu some time today.
Monday -  Chicken Alfredo, Salad
Tuesday -  Tacos, Mexican Rice
Wednesday - Cheesy Garlic Pizza
Thursday - Out to dinner
Friday -
Saturday -

On my to do list:::
Laundry - Put all the clean laundry away.
Wash all my daughter's bedding.
Housework - Make beds
Tidy up and clean daughter's bedroom (she's away for the week so this is the perfect time to give it a good cleaning)

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
With everything that's happened, I still haven't made it around to getting the crochet owls done.  I'll be working on those today as well. 

Looking around the house:::
It's very quiet.  Curt has gone off to work and it's just me awake at the moment.  Soon my brother and sister in law will be headed off to work as well, and until the boys wake up, it will be just me, quietly sitting here.

From the camera:::
We buried Lola in our yard, under this beautiful tree.  I find myself spending time out there just talking to her, and then other times I can't quite do it.  But for the moments I'm out there, I am finding peace in my heart, it just helps talking to her.

On my prayer list:::
For us, as we get through this difficult time.
For my brother and sister in law, they're having a very hard time finding a house to rent in this area. 


  1. Have a good week my friend. I pray each day gets easier as you deal with life moving on without your sweet Lola. That is always the hardest part of death for me - understanding how the world keeps moving while you're so heartbroken that you feel the need to stand still.

  2. Sandra my heart still breaks for you.....I hope you find comfort in knowing how many truly understand the heartache of losing a fur baby....I know you had two fur babies, but for the life of me I can't think of your others name, is she doing? I think of you and your family often, hope time heals...thank you for sharing your life with us....



  3. So sorry to hear of Lola's passing.... its never easy losing a beloved pet. I would say it gets easier, but its been almost a year since we had to put our kitty down, and I still have moments when the grief takes my breath away. Many hugs to you and your family!

  4. I am so sorry for your loss, dear Sandra! Many prayers for you and your whole family!

  5. It looks like a beautiful spot to remember your departed family member. Again, I'm so sorry for your loss. Be kind to yourself this week.

  6. Hi Sweetie!

    Still sending hugs and prayers over Lola. Continue to do whatever you need to in order to grieve her - as I feel it will also ultimately help with your healing.

    May you have a blessed week ahead. xoxo

  7. I will be praying with you dear on housing for them. And for your grief over Lola. It is hard, so hard.

  8. So sorry for your loss.
