{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 09/02/2019 }

Good morning everyone, and welcome to September.  How are we here already?

I hope you've all been having a wonderful Labor Day weekend, mine has been pretty good, but I think today is the first day I am actually planning on sitting for a bit, reading, having some coffee and taking it easy.

I want to start by apologizing for this post going up so late, but I just sent my daughter off to work with hubby.  He has the day off but needs to pick up a coworker from the airport so he is taking the girl to work and heading straight there.

Now that they are out the door, I can concentrate on getting this post up and then getting on with my day.

Anyway, let's get going with our Happy Homemaker Monday, thank you again for all the participants that drop by every single Monday to help me continue this feature.  I surely appreciate it!

The Weather:::
It is currently 72 and it feels so good outside.  The week is looking like lots of sun but a few degrees cooler than usual, so I'll take it.  Still hitting the triple digits....I'm not sure Arizona knows what Fall weather is.

Monday - Sunny, 95
Tuesday - Sunny, 97
Wednesday - Sunny, 96
Thursday - Sunny, 98
Friday - Mostly Sunny, 100
Saturday - Partly cloudy, 99
Sunday - Partly cloudy, 97

On my reading pile:::
Don't have any books at the moment, waiting for review books to come in, so I may start on one from my bookshelves.  I have so many just sitting there waiting to be read but because I usually have a full pile for reviews, I don't get around to them.  I may start The Water and The Blood by Nancy E. Turner.  

On my tv:::
Some Youtube homemaking vlogs
The new series Sanditon
The new series When Hope Calls

On the menu for this week:::
Monday -  Chicken a La King with Mash
Tuesday -  Salisbury Steak, Rice, Broccoli
Wednesday -  Ranch Pork Chops with Egg Noodles, Salad
Thursday - Fettucine Afredo, Garlic Bread
Friday - Sonoran Hot Dogs, Homemade Fries
Saturday -  Grocery Shopping
Sunday  - 

On my to do list:::
Pay bills

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Still slowly working on the Sacred Space blanket. 

Looking around the house:::
It is quiet, its just me, Marley and Nick, and he is still asleep.  I need to give the house a quick vacuum but not much else is needed as the house is clean.

From the camera:::
Still love my crochet mug cozies and am really excited to start using them again.  I don't use them during the summer, mostly in the Fall and Winter. 


On my prayer list:::
My mother in law.  She has been fighting cancer for years and it's sad to see her go through this over and over again.  She is exhausted mentally and physically.  Please keep her in your prayers, her name is Pat.
My husband put in for a new position at work which would be incredibly helpful for us financially, to finally get out of this hole we've been in for a few years.  I pray that he gets this job, but if he doesn't then I pray that we are ok with that decision too.

Bible verse, Devotional:::
The earth is filled with your love, Lord; teach me your decrees.
Psalm 119:64 NIV
