Oh my friends, I am so sorry there was no Happy Homemaker Monday last week. We were without internet for about 5 days. You know you never really understand how much you need internet until it's not available, I think that so much of our daily lives are connected to online, aren't they?
Anyway, feels good to be able to come back and get on with our Happy Homemaker Monday. Let's see what the week brings.....
On the weather front:::
We've had some crazy rain the past weekend, enough to cause some major flooding in some areas. The temperatures have finally dropped, we're going to be in the high 70's the whole week and that makes me incredibly happy :) Hello Fall!!!
On my bedside table:::
Cup of coffee
On my TV:::
The Voice Portugal
60 Days In
Thinking and pondering::::
This is my husband's last week of work until he is laid off. We are both surprisingly calm about the situation, and I think it's because we know that something else is on the way. I am a huge believer in that things happen for a reason, and that God has us on the path which is best for us. For some reason, my husband is not supposed to keep working either in this position or with this company, at this moment in time. We don't know why, but it's ok, we will follow through with whatever He has in store for us. If you are of the praying kind, we would appreciate some prayers sent our way :)
Watching The Voice Portugal while I type this post up.
Favorite Youtube Video last week:::
The youtube channel I'm sharing with you today, is actually Portuguese, so I apologize to those that can't speak the language, but I just have to share it with you. Maristela Moreira de Freitas, is a stay at home mom, homemaker, baker, and she just makes me smile. I absolutely love her vlogs.
On the menu for this week:::
I'm hoping, really hoping that I can take this week to jump back into my food blog. I'm wanting to at least get some photos taken of our meals every night and start sharing that.
Monday - Ham Steaks, Mashed Potatoes, Salad
Tuesday - New York Style Pizza
Wednesday - Smoked Sausage Alfredo, Olive Garden Breadsticks
Thursday - Pork Chops and Potatoes
Friday - Steaks, Fries, Salad
Saturday - In OKC

On my To Do List:::
Looking forward to:::
A quiet, peaceful, uneventful week
What I plan on doing for myself this week:::
I took up crocheting again, I know, crazy since I haven't done any in such a long time, but I'm loving it. I started a blanket and I will take some photos to show you and add them in another post later today. Yes, I said another post because I do plan on getting one up. I'm a terrible blogger, I've really fallen off the bandwagon but I want so badly to get back on.
These two are so in love, they've been together for 2 years and their love just continues to grow. They send me constant selfies throughout the day which makes me so incredibly happy :)
Lesson learned the past few days:::
I think it's a lesson that we all are forced to relearn over and over, and that is to just enjoy life as it comes. To take every single obstacle, every problem, every good or bad moment that comes our way, and make it the best we can. Stop struggling, stop trying to control everything and just go with the flow.
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:::
