{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 04/09/2018 }

Good morning everyone, hope you had a great weekend.

Welcome back to my Happy Homemaker Monday, I apologize for not getting a chance to visit youa ll last week, but I'll be doing that here shortly, and then later today will visit today's links :)

I had a pretty good weekend but could have done with one more day of weekend before this new week starts.  You all understand right?

I have a busy week ahead, working on finishing off the school year with Nick, tomorrow I have my mammogram appointment (prayers would be appreciated as I get super nervous), Wednesday is Nick's birthday, and this weekend I'll be super busy as well.

Breakfast time....what is on the plate this morning::::
Nothing to eat yet.  Usually I don't have coffee for 3 days before my mammogram, but last time I went they told me that was not necessary to do.  I did try again this time, but the very first day I got such horrible headaches from the caffeine withdrawal that I just gave up.  I only have a cup of coffee for breakfast anyway, so it shouldn't be too much of an issue, but I will be abstaining tomorrow morning from it. 

On this week's to do list::::
Laundry:::: One load to finish, fold and put away
Dishes, usual kitchen clean up
Vacuum and carpet clean bedroom
Vacuum and carpet clean office
Mammogram appointment at 3pm
Vacuum and carpet clean living room and dining room
Air Fryer review and thoughts post
Nick's Birthday:::: bake cake, family over for cake after dinner
Usual house cleaning
Finish picking Nick's courses for next year

Currently reading::::
The Man He Never Was:  A Modern Reimagining of Jekyll and Hyde by James L. Hubart. 

On the TV this week::::
I've been loving my Fire Stick and have found some really good shows, some old favorites and some I was watching but couldn't find episodes for. 


Portuguese Soap "A Herdeira"
Law and Order SVU (I have always loved this show, and last night decided to start rewatching from the beginning, and I mean from the very first episode)

The weather outside is::::
We had freezing cold conditions this weekend, so much so that Friday it was 80 degrees and I was wearing sandals and a sleeveless top, and by Saturday morning I was in boots, long sleeves and a sweater.
This week seems to be not too bad, 70's, 80's and even 90's by the end of the week.    

On the menu this week::::
Monday - Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, Green beans with Bacon
Tuesday - Air Fried Chicken Wings, Easy and Yummy Oven Cheesy Rice
Wednesday - Portuguese Pork Chops with Fried Potatoes 
Thursday - Dad's Favorite Chicken, Rice
FridayTortellini Alfredo, Grilled Zucchini  
Saturday - Homemade Pizza
Sunday - Leftovers

If I have a few minutes to myself, I will::::
Get a bit more reading done on my book, also need to take some photos for the review. 

What I'm sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating::::
Making some baby stuff for my niece's little girl. 

New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::::
Still trying out different things in the Air Fryer and so far, we're loving it.   

Favorite photo from the camera::::
Growing herbs make for such a pretty sight  

Bible Verse, Devotional::::
You all know how much I've struggled with worry, think it's something I've dealt with my whole life.  The past few months I've gotten a bit better at it, but there's still days that I can't help but feel that anxiety or the worry creeping up.
With my mammogram coming up tomorrow, I'm feeling it today, and it's so frustrating to me because I want to let it all go and just trust in God that everything will be fine, one way or the other.

If you could throw some prayers my way for everything to go well with the mammogram, I would so appreciate it.


  1. Sending prayers for your mammogram results. I have homemade pizza on my menu too. Not sure if I will get it made, as I'm hoping for leftovers this week.

  2. How is Krypton? We've been wanting to see it, but haven't yet found the time. I LOVE your inspiration this week. Prayers for your mammogram that all goes smooth. Mine s next week and I know what you mean about getting nervous! HAPPY BIRTHDAY Nick - have a GREAT week.

  3. Will be sending positive thoughts for your mammography. I'm thinking of planting some herbs too.

  4. Praying for you, friend! Have a beautiful week!

  5. Wonderful quote for the week. Hope your son has a great birthday and you have peaceful week.

  6. Hi Sandra! I feel your pain as my mammo lead to the biopsy I recently had to undergo - which by the grace of God was fine and benign. Just remember how He holds you in the palm of his hand. Actually as I was getting the biopsy done I thought of Him being there right next to me holding my hand. You know He always is right there with you in anything you go through - but I think he squeezes our hands the tightest when we're anxious if we choose to feel Him there. ;)

    Sending biggest prayers and positive thoughts for all to go well and your appointment to go quickly. Keep us posted. Blessings on your week Hon xoxo

  7. I hope the mammogram goes well.
    Would love to know your favourite food cooked in the Airfryer as I have one but so far have only done chips (fries)and sausages.

  8. Praying for you during your mammogram! Also looking forward to your post on the air fryer! Picking curriculum is one of my favorite things about homeschooling my kiddos, I always enjoy that! Sounds like you're supposed to have a beautiful weather week!!!

  9. Am praying over you here, Sandra! And love the herb pic! Have a blessed week ahead! <3

  10. The Man He Never Was: A Modern Reimagining of Jekyll and Hyde by James L. Hubart, sounds like a great book. I'm going to check it out.

  11. Sending prayers for your results and piece of mind.

  12. TOTALLY love period dramas too. Loving Victoria right now.
