{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 11/11/2019 }

Good morning everyone, how was your weekend?

Mine has been good but busy, isn't it always?  Lots of painting and fixing and house related stuff, but also filled with tons of Christmas movies.  Yes, I'm already on it, I started last week Wednesday and I've been watching at least one or two a night, the Hallmark movies that is. 

It's so funny that they are predictable and you know exactly what is going to happen, and yet, I love watching them and can't stop.  lol

Anyway, it is a new week, we have a blank slate to write our stories, so let's make it a good one.

Thank you all who come in every week to participate, and a big hello to all the new participants.

Let's see what we have going on this week. 

The weather outside is::::
The temperature is currently 50 degrees but the real feel is 46.  The wind is howling outside and we actually have a high wind warning going on.  We are also expecting a cold front to come in so I guess it's time to bundle up.   

Monday - Cloudy/Wind,  48
Tuesday - Sunny, 43
Wednesday - Sunny, 59
Thursday - Sunny, 56
Friday - Sunny, 58
Saturday - Partly cloudy, 61
Sunday - Partly cloudy, 58

On the breakfast plate this morning::::
Just enjoying a hot cup of coffee with White Chocolate Raspberry creamer.  Not sure what I will eat, not hungry right now and can't think of anything I feel like.      

As I look outside my window:::
It is still dark outside so aside from the high wind noises, I can't see a single thing.  

Right now I am::::
Sitting in bed, drinking my coffee, listening to the howling wind and getting this post typed up.         

As I look around the house::::
The house is still asleep, so it's pretty dark.  There are twinkly lights on the mantel and the Fall tree lit in the corner.  It looks so cozy in here.      

On today's to do list::::
Laundry....All the laundry has been washed, just need to do one load of kitchen towels.       
Cleaning....Had our real estate agent come over yesterday morning, so Curt and I zipped through and gave the house a really and I mean REALLY good clean.  I have nothing to do today as it's sparkly clean.  Yay!!!     
Cooking.....Hubby is off today, so for lunch I'm going to make him some biscuits and gravy.  Dinner will be the Pampered Chef Chicken Broccoli Ring with a salad.     

On the menu this week::::
Monday - Chicken and Broccoli Ring, Salad
Tuesday - Slow Cooked Cubed Steaks with Gravy, Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Wednesday - Cheesy Garlic Pizza
Thursday - Pork Chops with Cubed Potatoes, Steamed Broccoli

What I am creating at the moment::::
Rozeta CAL from Lilla Bjorn.     

New recipe I tried or want to try this week::::
We tried the Chicken and Dumplings last week and it was a hit.  The Chili Frito Pie was just ok, it was basically just chili with frito chips.  I don't have any new recipes planned at the moment, but I do have to work on my next menu plan so I can grocery shop on Friday.

Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::

♥♥♥ Curt's stepfather is still needing open heart surgery, but there have been a few complications and he is now dealing with some gallbladder issues and an open ulcer.   He is currently in rehabilitation gaining his strength so he can have his heart surgery done.  Please keep him in your prayers. 
♥♥♥ My mother in law and her continuing fight with breast cancer.
♥♥♥ Our home buying journey.  The VA Appraiser should be coming out sometime this week.  We have a projected closing date as well.  I have to say that as much as I would love to buy this house for myself,  I mostly want this for my husband.  He has worked so hard his whole life, gave 22 years to the military and is now still working with the Air Force, training our future airmen.  This is a dream that I want for HIM, it's something he has wanted for many years and I would love to see it come to fruition.  So please keep us in your prayers. 

* The past few weeks I have had to go in and delete links that are NOT related to Happy Homemaker Monday.  Folks, I have asked repeatedly to not add random links to other posts on your blogs, or just a link to your blog in general.  It is a lot of work for me to sit and go through and manually delete them from the linky, and it's also incredibly rude to the other participants who are just looking for the Happy Homemaker Monday posts.  Please be respectful!!! 


  1. Sending up prayers for all and your and your home situation. We too are watching Hallmark movies, but from the library.

  2. Good morning and happy Monday! Oh, I was watching a Halmark Christmas movie last night that was about a guy and girl meeting and you can tell throughout the movie they were falling in love with each other. At the end she needed to head back to where she was from and as she left in the taxi I said I bet she's going to turn around and go back to him … sure enough, she did! But I do love those movies. Wow, you have a lot of heavy things on your prayer list and I will certainly pray for you and your family.

  3. HI Sweetie!
    First of all, blessings and gratitude to Curt for all of his years of service!!
    Next, continue to pray about your home situation and your loved ones health needs. 🙏
    I also love the cheesy Hallmark Christmas movies too. They just make me smile inside. Lol
    Lastly, I adore that Autumn tree!! It's so pretty. Your home always looks so inviting. Have a blessed week. xoxo

  4. Oooo you had me at the white chocolate raspberry creamer! Cute fall tree. Continuing praying for you and your family! Have a great week!

  5. Sending positive thoughts for all on your prayer list. Great Fall tree. I too love to watch the Hallmark movies

  6. I just love your Fall tree, looks so cozy. Prayers for healing for all your family and that house buying adventure. Hope your week is off to a great start!
