{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 06/03/2019 }

Good morning everyone and a very happy June to you.  Can you even believe that we are in June, halfway through this year already?

So crazy!!!

Well another week ahead, more rain in the forecast and a lens that has all but disappeared.  Such is my life at the moment  LOL

I am still blessed though, and that is all that matters.

I don't have much to chit chat about this morning, as I don't have much time before I have to run out and take Jasmine to work, so I'm going to try and get this post up as quickly as I possibly can.

Hope you all have a blessed week ahead and thank you again for always stopping by to participate in my Happy Homemaker Monday :)

Rain just started coming down about 20 minutes ago, and it's supposed to stay on and off for the rest of the day.  Looks like the week ahead is also filled with rain

On my reading pile:::

Movies or Shows I watched this weekend:::
Hubby and I spent all weekend catching up on Lucifer, we are now on Season 4, which for us has been the best out of them all.  We are eager to finish and have to pace ourselves because if not for the fact that get up at 6AM, we probably would be up well past our bedtime.

On my TV this week:::
General Hospital
Homemaking vlogs
The Spanish Princess
When Calls the Heart
60 Minutes Australia
True Crime Daily
Lucifer Season 4

On the menu for this week:::
Most of the recipes on this week's meal plan, come from the blog Life in the Lofthouse.

Slow Cooker Ground Beef Stroganoff with Egg Noodles

Teriyaki Chicken Casserole 

Baked Parmesan Pork Chops with Mash and Steamed Broccoli

Chic-Fil-A Sandwiches, Homemade fries

Homemade Crunchwrap Supreme

Homemade Crunchwrap Supreme

On my to do list:::
Empty and reload dishwasher
Wash bed linens

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Nothing at all this past week, and not sure what I'll be doing this upcoming one.  I honestly miss having projects on the go and being busy with my crochet, but I feel like I've lost a bit of that crochet mojo, or maybe I just need to find the project that will bring it all back for me.

Looking forward to:::
Paying off a few more bills.  We just paid off a big one on Friday and I'm so happy for that to be out of the way.  We are hoping to buy this house within the next 2 years and have been working really hard and paying off debt and putting ourselves in a good financial position to achieve this dream of ours.  Praying for that.

Looking around the house:::
Super dark even though it's almost 8AM.  I need to give the whole house a quick vacuum when I get back from dropping off Jasmine.  The living room needs put back together, Nick usually moves my coffee table out of the way when he is playing his VR, and then being the 16 year old he is, never puts things back where they belong. 

From the camera:::
You are all aware of my lens and camera issues, so I don't really have any new pictures to share, but I did take one of the cake I made my husband for his birthday.  It was SO good, one of the best ever homemade chocolate cakes I've made.     

What I'm wearing today:::
As always when I am typing this post up, I'm still in my pjs.  Soon as this post goes up, I will slip on some jeans, tshirt and tennis shoes so that I can do the work drop off.  Once I'm home I will most likely change from jeans into some comfy shorts and my slippers.   

One of my simple pleasures:::
Cooking for my family.  I know there are many people who don't enjoy cooking at all, so to even put this down as a simple pleasure of mine, may sound weird.  I really do enjoy it though :)

Bible verse, Devotional, prayers::: 


  1. I sure hope your lens situation works itself out soon - know how much your photography means to you. I also hope it turns out to be a relatively mild weather week so you can worry less. CONGRATULATIONS on paying off that BIG one on Friday - praying for you. Looks like a nice menu and Curt's birthday cake looks absolutely delicious. I LOVE your quote! Have a GREAT week.

  2. That cake looks delicious! And now, I'm also craving Chik-Fil-A. May have to go make a menu change, LOL. I think it's wonderful that you enjoy cooking so much. I wish I did enjoy it a bit more, honestly, I don't mind it but I very much dislike cleaning up and I'm a messy cook ;) You got me hooked on your show, just started season 2 of Lucifer last night. Hope you have a wonderful week & don't end up with too much rain.

  3. Hello Dearest Gal!

    Rain rain go away!! Hope it clears up soon. Your menu looks delish as always!! 😋 And I hope you find your crochet mojo too - I always love seeing what you create.

    Love your inspiration! ❤️ Have a blessed week ahead. Fingers crossed on your camera lens!! xoxo

  4. Congratulations on paying off another bill, Sandra! Doesn't it feel good??? I'm wishing you well as you continue your path towards debt freedom. We're down to our last cc here and are so looking forward to it ourselves! The cake looks delicious! Hope your week is off to a great start! Blessings! <3

  5. We are getting way too much rain in our area. As always the meals look great. I totally forgot yesterday was Happy Homemaker Monday. Will try and join next week if my brain is in working order.

  6. Today when I read your blog, which I do all the time, one line stuck in my head all day. It was.. I am still blessed though, and that's all that matters. It is so true and had me thinking about all the things in my life that aren't that great, but when I think of my blessings it makes me feel better. Please keep blogging because I look forward to it every day..... Karen
