Are you ready for the new week ahead? I'm kind of on the fence, I am and I'm not. I think the weekend went by a bit too quick for my taste, if I'm being honest, but I am also looking forward to a week of homemaking, and whatever else comes my way.
Now let's get right into our Happy Homemaker Monday, shall we?
The weather in my neck of the woods::::
There is a rolling fog out in the fields this morning. That's how I know that Fall is surely on it's way. The weather did get a little hot over the weekend and I really didn't much care for it, I think I got used to cooler temps and I'm just not interested in revisiting 90's or 100's. Thank you very much!!!
Unfortunately looks like we will be in the 90's up until Friday and then we're expecting some rain Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I say bring it on :)
Breakfast time....what is on the plate this morning::::
I had a very much needed cup of coffee at 6AM, but haven't had anything else since then. I think breakfast is going to be some toast with homemade apple butter.
On today's to do list::::
- Laundry - The kids both have laundry to do, so that's one of their chores today. I have a pile of ironing waiting for me to get to, so I'll do that and then put it away. Also going to change the bed linens as I do every single week.
- Kitchen - Empty the dishwasher. Load dishwasher. Wipe down counters, sweep and mop.
- Living Rooms - Dust, vacuum and tidy up.
Almost finished with The Removes, the review will be up tomorrow.

If I have a few minutes to myself, I will::::
Read. I love reading and I often find that I don't get as much time to sit down and read as I would like, even if I add me time to the schedule, I find myself doing other things that don't include picking up my books. Need to change that.
What I'm sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating::::
Waiting on Part 2 of the Ubuntu CAL to be released on Wednesday. For the moment, I'm not working on any other project.
New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::::
The chicken strogonoff is a new recipe, even though I've made chicken strogonoff before, I haven't tried this version so it will be interesting to see how it turns out. I also need to put up the recipe for the yummy beef casserole we had a few days ago.
Favorite photo from the camera::::
My Marley is my little shadow, everywhere I go, he goes. He is a lump of cuteness and sweetness, in an 80 pound body.
Bible Verse, Devotional, Prayers::::
My thoughts are still with the Carolinas through this horrible Hurricane Florence. I know the death toll is at 17 and that just breaks my heart. May the Lord continue to protect everyone in the path of this monster.
