{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 04/24/2017 }

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

Here we are yet again, another Monday that seemed to have come straight out of nowhere.  Is anyone else feeling like this year is flying at a turbo speed?  It needs to slow down, like seriously.

I'm going to get this post up pretty quick as I have my daughter's boyfriend visiting and need to get some breakfast going, so let's get on with our Happy Homemaker Monday :)

The weather:::
Beautiful weather, not much rain the past few days so it's been really nice.  We have a high of 82 predicted for today so that will be good and warm. 

On my reading pile:::
Diana Gabaldon's Lord John Series.  Still going through that one, I'm enjoying it but just wish that I found more time to read, it always seems like the moment I get that time, I am so tired that I read a few lines and fall right to sleep.

Movies or Shows I watched this weekend:::
I've been catching up on Once Upon a Time so every single spare moment I have, or while I cook, or clean or do dishes, I've been watching.  I've on Season 4, about halfway through. 

On my TV:::
General Hospital
Dr Phil
Fear Thy Neighbor
See no Evil
Murder comes to Town
Reasonable Doubt

On the menu for this week:::

Salisbury Steak and Rice, Salad
Asian BBQ Chicken Legs, Sesame Noodles  
Burgers on the Grill, Fries 
Not sure, might be a leftover day.  My meals got all switched around this time so I don't know what I still have meat wise or what I'll be making. 
*Grocery Shopping*  (New menu will kick in, I still haven't made it up yet though)  

On my to do list:::
Monday - Jasmine's boyfriend drove 7 hours last night to get here just to spend the day with her for her birthday, then has to drive right back and has work the next morning.  I offered to do his laundry for him to save him some time, so I'll be working on that today.
Tuesday - Rearranging my bedroom.  Going to switch the bed back to the other wall because with summer coming, the fan is right above and we don't get good air flow back in this side of the house. 
Wednesday - School work with kids
Thursday - Work on Menu Plan
Friday - Grocery Shopping, Base Pharmacy to get more Motrin for me, I'm completely out
Saturday - Yard work

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Still working on the Nuts about Squares.  I have to make 2 more of Week 4 before Thursday, so I'll try to fit those in some time.  Here's the Week 4 Square, how neat is it?

Looking around the house:::
It's clean, I actually went on a cleaning rampage yesterday because I was feeling good and it was a gorgeous day.  Hubby worked on mowing the yards, back and front, all 3 acres, and I worked inside.              

From the camera:::
Beautiful flowers from my garden.  I just love bringing Spring inside :) 

What I'm wearing today:::
In my pjs at this moment, but as soon as this post is up, I'll be throwing on some jeans and a tank. 

One of my simple pleasures:::
Sitting in bed, early morning, with the curtains and windows open and listening to the birds chirping outside.  That's the only sound I hear and it's glorious.   

Bible verse, Devotional:::
