My last week has been a bit of a blur, it's just been so incredibly busy that I haven't had much down time and when I finally do get to sit down, I'm usually fast asleep. Blogtober has completely fallen to the wayside. I'm hoping to get a few more posts in here and there but I am not promising myself to do that because yeah, it's been just crazy.
Anyway, I hope you all have a blessed week, let's see what we have going on in our Happy Homemaker Monday today.
The weather outside is::::We have still hit upper 90's a couple of times, can't say I'm too thrilled with that, but at least our mornings are chilly and we seem to be heading for cooler temps. Last night around 8:30 PM, we had a storm just come out of nowhere, weather app didn't even forecast it. Didn't last but an hour, but it was pretty strong. It is currently 47 degrees.
Monday - Sunny, 74
Tuesday - Sunny, 76
Wednesday - Sunny/Wind, 82
Thursday - Rain/Wind,58
Friday - Partly cloudy,61
Saturday - AM showers, 66
Sunday - Sunny,74
On the breakfast plate this morning::::I've had coffee but nothing else yet, will probably have some toast later.
As I look outside my window:::It is after 7AM and still pitch black outside, so I can't see anything but I CAN hear the owls hooting.
Right now I am::::Working on this post and watching some Youtube videos on the TV. If find it easier to just pop one on and keep going with the task at hand, so I get more done and catch up with my viewing at the same time.
As I look around the house::::I was just thinking that maybe I need to start doing this post later in the morning because again, I can't see anything, the house is pitch black. LOL
But we do have a big ol 65 inch TV just standing in our living room, it belongs to my brother in law and we are storing it for him while he is in Korea. This weekend we helped my mother in law clear out their childhood home (she sold it), and we have a ton of things that have been brought over to our house to store. I'm thankful for a huge garage that is able to take all this in. But, as I was saying, we have things all over the house at the moment, and I'll working on clearing those up today.
On today's to do list::::Laundry....Washing couch pillow and cushion covers for a pull out bed couch that my mother in law gave us. It's been sitting in their garage for a long time so it needs a good cleaning, but it's in great shape and will go in the office for extra bedding when we have guests. Also have a couple comforters to go in. We have a new washer (new to us, my brother in law gifted it to us and it's one without an agitator so it fits a lot more in there. Can't wait to wash the comforters without them being squashed around the agitator like it was in the old washer.
Cleaning....need to do some basic house cleaning.
In the living room....tidy up and need to vacuum.
Homeschooling....Nick has a Game Design portfolio he needs help with. He is taking Chemistry and Algebra 2 this year, and it's doing my head in. LOL
Crocheting....working on Part 2 of the Rozeta CAL.
Cooking.....I have put on 12 pounds the past year, part in due to not watching what I'm eating, and mostly because of the hormonal changes. Starting today I am back to intermittent fasting and being more careful with my food choices. Will have a salad for lunch, and dinner is Ham steaks, Mashed potatoes and Brussel Sprouts.
On the menu this week::::Monday - Ham steaks, mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts
Tuesday - Green Chile Stew, Honey Cornbread Muffins
Wednesday - Spaghetti, Salad
Thursday - Oven Chili Dogs, Homemade Fries
Friday - Crockpot Sausage Rigatoni
Saturday - Grilled Cheese and Ham, Chili Fries
Sunday - Sausage and Potatoes Skillet
Currently reading::::One for the Blackbird, One for the Crow.

Catherine the Great
What I am creating at the moment::::Working on Part 2 of the Rozeta CAL from Lilla Bjorn.
New recipe I tried or want to try this week::::I tried the cheesecake and it was delicious, so definitely will be making that for Thanksgiving. I also have a review for Clifty Farms coming up and need to come up with at least 2 recipes for that, so looking forward to it.

Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::
** For my mother in law's cancer.
** I wanted to ask you all for some prayers for Curt and I. I don't want to go into details quite yet, but we have something coming up this week that would be just life changing for us, if it goes through. I'm praying so hard that it does, but I know that it is all in the Lord's hands.
