Happy Homemaker Monday - 07/11/2016

Good morning everyone, how was your weekend?

Mine was so good, we spent Saturday at Fort Sill, went to the lake, swam, got some sun, and also checked out 2 of the museums on base.  It was such a surreal moment standing in Geronimo's cell.

Yesterday we hung out at home, and got to watch the UEFA Euro 2016 Final in which my Portugal played against France and WON.  I actually cried my eyes out, we had been waiting for a win like this for so many many years.  I'm one happy girl :)

Anyway, that was my weekend, hope yours was equally good, but now it's time for some Happy Homemaker Monday :)

The Weather:::
Partly cloudy right now.  The temps have been in the triple digits, it's so incredibly hot.  I think it's supposed to be very windy the next 3 days, so I know I'll have to keep up on my allergy meds. 

On my reading pile:::
I'm still getting through all my review books, it makes me smile looking at my reading pile, truly it does.  I have a review coming up on the 20th for The Daredevil Snared by Stephanie Laurens.  She is one of my favorite authors and I'm enjoying this one :)

On my tv:::
Portuguese Soaps
General Hospital
The American West - We watched the first episode and really liked it, even the kids, and I think it's such a great series to teach them all about American History.

On the menu for this week:::
We will probably be away this weekend, heading up to Oklahoma City and Tulsa area to attend our little cousin's 1st birthday.  I won't have to worry about cooking Friday, Saturday and Sunday night.

Monday -  Fettucine Alfredo, Homemade breadsticks
Tuesday -  Jambalaya, Salad
Wednesday - Baked Spaghetti, Foccaccia
Thursday - Jasmine Therapy and have to go check out some dryers, will grab something while out
Friday - Away
Saturday - Away

On my to do list:::
Laundry - Need to put away 2 baskets, and iron another load, put away etc.
Normal housecleaning, tidy up living rooms, vacuum, wash bed sheets etc.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
This week I need to work on the little crochet owls for my friend.

Looking around the house:::
Very quiet, hubby has left for work and so has my brother and sister in law, it's just me and the kids and they're all still sleeping.  I think this time of the day is my favorite. 

From the camera:::
In Geronimo's cell, this is an autographed picture of him.  I am so glad I got to experience this little part of history.

On my prayer list:::
**My grandmother.  Last week she was moved to a sub-acute step down facility where she will continue to receive the care she needs.  It hurts knowing that she may never be able to return home but I know she is much better here getting the medical help she needs.  Please continue to pray for her. 

Something that inspires or brings a smile to your face:::


  1. Congratulations on Portugal's win! I know you have been following this closely hoping for this exact outcome!

    Try and stay cool in this miserable weather we are having. I keep praying for a change for the better, but it just keeps getting worse.

    Sounds like a fun weekend and what a great experience in history. Have a great week.

  2. Is there a link to a site where The American West can be watched online? Sounds good. Thank you.

  3. Hi Sandra!

    That trip sounds so cool and seeing Geronimo's cell must have been amazing. I appreciate history so much the more I age.

    Congrats on the big "football" win!! That's awesome!!!!

    Continued prayers for your Gram and blessings on your week Sweetie. xoxo

  4. Your weekend sounds like it was fun! how cool is that Geronimo photo. I'm sad to hear about your Grandma but glad she will have 24/7 care. Have a great week.

  5. Have a safe trip to Oklahoma! I'm going to have to look into the American West - is it on tv? Netflix? Sounds like something I'd like!


  6. Congrats for your team's win. Thought of you when I heard. Saw a cute video of a little Portuguese boy giving a crying French fan a hug. Your menu is making me hungry!

  7. Hi Sandra!

    I highly recommend visiting the Great Plains Museum in Lawton. Right now, they have an awesome Lego exhibit.


  8. I miss homemaker Mondays. I finally blogged again after a few years and thought of your blog of course. I love seeing you on FB, I am not on right now because I need to focus on studying for a big test. I drool over your crochet stuff. I am loving granny squares right now, and have learned how to join as I go.


Thank you for reading and taking the time to comment. Please be respectful of each other and my blog. Rude comments will be deleted.

Thank you for stopping by, hope you are having a Blessed day!
