{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 03/13/2017 }

Good morning friends, hope you've all had a wonderful weekend.

I'm sorry I'm a bit late starting today, but this time change has me all messed up.  I honestly feel like I'm jet lagged without having gone anywhere.  That and the fact that I was enjoying waking up to sunrises and now it's back to waking up in darkness.  Ugh!!

Anyway, let's get going with this week shall we?

The weather:::
Rainy day, it's currently 40 degrees.  It's supposed to clear up and warm up throughout the day and it looks like a nice week ahead.  

On my reading pile:::
Phillipa Gregory "Meridon".

Movies or Shows I watched this weekend:::
Yesterday, Curt, Jasmine and I watched "Christmas Office Party", it was quite funny.
I'm still binge watching Women Behind Bars which I really enjoy.
Finished Outlander, started Underground and am hoping to finish that one soon too.
Watched the new Ghost Brothers episode for Season 2, and also watched The Dead Files.  Going to watch The Walking Dead sometime today, I'm the only one watching it here at home, everyone else gave up on it.  

On my TV:::
General Hospital
Dr Phil
The Waling Dead

On the menu for this week:::

Monday 27th
Tavern Sandwiches with Onion Rings
Tuesday 28th

Wednesday 1st
Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan, Spaghetti noodles

On my to do list:::
Vacuum, Dust
Unload and reload dishwasher

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Almost done with Part 9 of the Mandala Madness, set it aside for a few weeks so I wouldn't get bored, but picked it back up last night.
Still want to get the bunting done for the living room, hoping to get to that some time this week.

Wednesday I'll be making Part 5 of the Scheepjes CAL 2017.

Happening this week:::
Jasmine has a doctor's appointment on Thursday
Kids are also on Spring Break but we need to catch up on school, so they'll be doing that

Looking around the house:::

It's not looking bad, I cleaned up a bit yesterday.  It's just the usual tidying up, dishes, cooking etc.

From the camera:::
Portuguese Cookie Cake that I made for Saturday night.  We had family over for dinner.  I will get the recipe up on the blog some time today. 

What I'm wearing today:::
Patterned Leggings, V Neck Grey flowy t-shirt.  Black sweater. 

One of my simple pleasures:::
Having family over for dinner.   

Bible verse, Devotional:::
