{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 06/11/2018 }

Good morning everyone :)

Well another week is upon us.  I always say that the time just goes by so quickly, but really, it seems to be flying away and we're halfway through this year, insane.

I completely failed at daily blogging last week, and it's not for any particular reason, other than I put up some reviews that needed to go up and then didn't want to over post, if that is even a thing, considering back in the day I would sometimes post 2 or 3 times a day.  Different times though right?

I'm hoping to be a little more consistent this week, so we will see how that goes.

Have a wonderful week everyone :) 

Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather.....Quite hot here in Texas and we're not even in the middle of summer yet.  Thankfully this week the temps are down to mid 90's.  The high winds are he worst for me and my allergies though, I can always tell when it gets super windy, that I'll be dealing with itchy nose, roof of mouth, sneezing, congestion, cough and sore throat.  Blech!!!

Right now I am....Working on this post and watching Call the Midwife on the TV. 

Thinking....That I'm going to start back on an exercise routine, not for anything other than feeling healthier as I age.  

On my reading pile.... Reading through Where Hope Begins by Catherine West.         

On my TV.....I have been rewatching Call the Midwife.  I have so many others I need to finish but I love this one so much and just felt like watching it again, so that's what's been on my TV this weekend.  However, Poldark Season 4 began last night so I'll definitely be watching that sometime today :)        

On the menu for this week....
Tuesday - Grilled Bratwurst, Corn Salad, Potato Salad
Wednesday - Sicilian Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes and Steamed Broccoli
Friday - Portuguese Chicken and Rice, Salad
Saturday - (Not sure yet)
Sunday - Leftovers

On my to do list....
Empty Dishwasher and reload with breakfast dishes
Change bed linens
Vacuum and dust
Water plants
Start 30 Day Shred with Lucy Wyndham-Read
Blog post   

In the craft basket....I finished the little set for Tiffany's baby girl.  She absolutely loves Disney and so I thought this would be something she would really love, and she does.  Can't wait to take some photos of baby Evangeline wearing it.  :)

Looking forward to this week....A shopping day and lunch out with my sister in law.  We are going to be shopping for the baby and that's always exciting.  ALSO, the Fifa World Cup starts on Thursday and I'm SOOOO excited, you guys all know how much I love soccer.  Friday is Portugal's first game against Spain, so it will be never wrecking, but I'm looking forward to it.     

Looking around the house....What is with all these moths?  Is anyone else dealing with the crazy influx of moths?  I swear I open my doors for a second and they just come right in.  (I'm sitting here staring at two on my ceiling and hoping to God they do NOT bomb dive me.  I have an irrational fear of moths LOL)       

From the camera....
I've been trying to propagate some cuttings and using different methods.   One of which is using honey as a growth hormone for the roots, so we will see how that works.
