Happy Homemaker Monday - 09/25/2017

Good morning friends, I am so sorry this is going up much later than usual.

I just walked in the door, had to take my daughter to a doctor's appointment this morning.

Anyway, let's get going.

The Weather:::
74 degrees at the moment, cloudy and a bit windy.  We are expecting rain today, tomorrow and Wednesday.  This whole week is going to be in the 70's which I'm grateful for because it's Fall and it certainly doesn't feel like it around Texas. 

Right now I am:
I just sat on the couch.  I walked in the door, took off my shoes and jeans, slipped on some pajama pants and my slippers and got the laundry switched over.  I also gave the kids some lunch, quickly blitzed my Butternut Squash soup that I left going in the crockpot this morning and am now finally able to sit and get this post up.

That I feel quite rough today, just not feeling well.  My stomach is not right, I have heartburn and a headache going too.  My husband wasn't feel well this morning either, so not sure if we picked something up when we were out this weekend.     

On my reading pile:::
I'm almost done with all my book reviews for the summer.  Then I have nothing until November and December when the next Winter tours kick in.  It will be nice to take a little break but I'm going to miss reading.  I do have another Nancy E. Turner book on my shelf, so I'll dive into that one :)

On my tv:::
Watched Death Note with my husband, and I found it so ridiculous.  The whole movie was awful, the movie itself, the acting, just awful.
I'm still catching up on The Great British Bake off, finished Season 2, and am hoping to start Season 3 today.

Today I'll be watching:
General Hospital

On the menu for this week:::

Sunday - Leftovers or Fend for Yourself (the past few months, my hubby and kids have requested that Sunday be a "eat whatever" day.  Mainly to give me a break from cooking, but also because they like snacking and enjoy doing that.)

On my to do list:::
Housework -  Just doing laundry, I am leaving everything else for tomorrow, because I'm not feeling well.
Menu Plan

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Nothing at the moment, had a very busy week last week and didn't get to crochet anything, so all my projects are on hold for the moment.

Looking around the house:::
It's a beautiful morning, a little cloudy with the sun peeking in here and there.  Curtains are open, back screen door is open to let in a little breeze.  The storm seems to have moved on at the minute so it's quiet on the home front.  Marley is snoozing next to me on the couch, Nick is up but is watching some videos on his phone and Jasmine is still asleep.  House is quiet and I quite enjoy these moments before I get started with my day.

From the camera:::
Tonight's dinner will be these Portuguese Pork Chops with Bacon and roast potatoes.  I linked the recipe for you all above.
