{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 04/23/2018 }

Good morning friends, happy Monday :)

So glad to be back on my normal schedule and routine.  I do apologize again for not having this post up last week Monday, but I was traveling back from San Diego, and I didn't have my laptop with me.

I'm back today though, so let's get right into our HHM :) 

Breakfast time....what is on the plate this morning::::
I've just had a cup of coffee with Vanilla Creamer, and once this post is up, I'll make some toast with cottage cheese.

On the TV this week::::

The weather outside is::::
Beautiful morning, blue skies, and a high of 77 today.  Looks like we'll be in the upper 70's all week long, except for Wednesday where we'll dip back down to 59.  Sick of this unpredictable weather, really.

If I have a few minutes to myself, I will::::
Work on the new crochet blanket.  I know, I know, I can't help myself and I don't have anything else going right now.    

What I'm sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating::::
A few years ago I used some pretty fabric to make some patchwork placemats.  Since then they've been washed so many times, that they've become quite ratty.  I have some fabric sitting around that is perfect for Spring and Summer, so will be making more this week. 

New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::::
Will be making some Baked Spaghetti Squash with Garlic and Cheese.  I'll share the recipe when I make it :) 

Favorite photo from the camera::::
These sea lions were so cute.  

Bible Verse, Devotional::::
Love this inspirational quote.  It's so important that we learn to tune out the craziness of life around us, and turn towards the ONLY One who truly cares about us. 


  1. Wow! we are so far from the ocean no way we would see Sea Lions like that.

    Have a great week

  2. Love that inspirational saying! I am doing that right now.

  3. Sea lions are adorable! I'm glad you are back home :)

  4. Glad you got back from your trip safely. Love the sea lion pic!! ;) The spaghetti squash recipe sounds awesome! Have a blessed week ahead my Dear. xoxo

  5. Cottage cheese on toast is one of my favorite breakfasts, Sandra. So yummy! Your menu plans for this week look great! Will be looking for the spaghetti squash recipe. Have a blessed week ahead! <3
