Happy Homemaker Monday - 08/08/2016

Morning friends, hope you've all had a great weekend and are ready for the new week ahead.

I have a somewhat busy week, but not busy in the sense of boring or frustrating things coming up, more in the sense that I've decided I need to get back to my roots and my homemaking, and so with that in mind, I plan on getting a lot of projects completed around here.

I'm currently working on my bedroom, I have a couple mismatched pieces in there, and am painting everything black to match my bed set.  Also want to eventually paint the walls grey and put in some fairy lights and some pictures etc.  Can't wait to see it all come together, and yes, I'll show you what it looks like :)

Right, now let's get on with our Happy Homemaker Monday!!!

The weather.....
It's been hot around here, I often think that this Texas weather is very reminiscent of Arizona, in the heat department.  Difference being that here we get rain whereas in AZ, not so much.
Speaking of rain, we haven't had a good downpour in a few weeks or a month or two actually, so I'm hoping for some soon, and looks like this week we may get some headed our way.  Yay!!!

Right now I am....
Sitting on my bed, typing up this post.  From where I'm sitting I can see the back yard and the fields behind it.  It looks so pretty from here.  Anyway, I'm still in my pj's so need to get dressed soon, but first want to get this HHM post up.

That I have a lot to get done.  I need to get the kid's lessons ready because school starts on Monday the 15th.  Also need to get projects done around here, work on a new menu plan, etc.

On my reading pile....
First Star I See Tonight by Susan Elizabeth Phillips.


On my TV.....
Portuguese Soaps
General Hospital
Supernatural Season 11
Love and Friendship - will be watching this movie while I paint. 

On the menu for this week....

Monday - Bacon Fettucine Alfredo, Salad
Tuesday -  Vegetable Soup, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Dessert
Wednesday - My Birthday (Pork Roast, Mashed Potatoes, Salad)
Thursday - Crockpot Chili, Cornbread
Friday -  Out to eat to celebrate my wedding anniversary
Saturday - Barbecue chicken wings, potato salad
Sunday -Meatloaf, Macaroni and Cheese, Broccoli

On my to do list today and this week....
Did all my laundry this past week so actually don't have any today.  Shocking!!! 
Homeschooling - get lessons ready for the first week
Housework- Vacuum, dust, mop kitchen floor, usual cleaning and tidying
Painting bedroom side tables and tv stand
Thursday morning taking Jasmine for a haircut and color
Thursday afternoon taking Jasmine for her therapy appointment

In the craft basket....
Nothing at the moment.

Looking forward to this week....

Another week in the Lord's presence, also getting back to proper homemaking.

Looking around the house....
It's quiet.  The only kid awake is my Nick who is on the Xbox playing.  My nephew and daughter are still asleep.
It's kinda dark because it's cloudy outside, I'm really hoping that we have rain coming in.

From the camera....
Pulled this book back out, and plan on rereading it. 

On my prayer list.....

My daughter.  I don't want to go into details, but she desperately needs the Lord's hand over her.  What worries me with this generation is how easily influence they are by society and stupid things they read on the internet.  I've been praying incessantly over her the past week, just for her to break free of some bad influences and really get back on track with God.

Bible verse, Devotional....
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the ope that is in you, with meekness and fear.  - 1 Peter 3:15 NKJV
