{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 02/24/2020 }

7:27 AM

Good morning everyone, come on in out of the cold, let's have a cup of coffee or tea, and talk about what is coming up this week.

I have the usual busy home stuff, schooling, driving and all in between, going on.  I can't believe that we are putting up our last Happy Homemaker Monday for the month of February.  How crazy is that?

How is time going by so fast?  We always talk about this, but I still find it so crazy that days and months are just flying right by. 

Anyway, it is what it is right?

I apologize for not making it to anyone's blog last week, it was pretty busy for me and I don't often get to sit on the computer or even pick it up during the day, aside from schooling.  I will make some time today to visit you all, but that will be after dropping Jasmine off at work and getting my housework under way.

Enough babbling, let's get right on with our post.  Have a blessed week friends.




♥♥The Weather♥♥
It is currently howling outside.  The past week we have had strong winds, which have thrown my allergies into high gear.  We also had a bit of rain yesterday afternoon, but nothing to write home about.  The rest of the week looks to be a mild one, with temperatures ranging in the 50s and 60s. 

Monday - Partly cloudy and windy, 63
Tuesday - Partly cloudy and windy, 57
Wednesday - Sunny, 50
Thursday - Sunny, 62
Friday - Sunny, 65
Saturday -  Sunny, 67
Sunday - Partly cloudy and windy, 71


♥♥How I am feeling this morning♥♥
I'm feeling pretty good, aside from the runny/congested nose {I always find that such a weird thing, it's runny and completely clogged at the same time}.  The allergies are playing up so I've been back to taking my allergy meds, the past 3 days or so.   


♥♥On my mind♥♥
The usual, my mind is always constantly going with things to do, things to remember and so on.         


♥♥On the breakfast plate♥♥
Just had a cup of coffee around 5:30 AM with the hubby.  I am not sure what I will eat later.  I've been overdoing it the past few weeks, not watching what I'm eating and mixing a bunch of things that have left me with an upset stomach.  So, I am back to plain water to drink and really just having to watch what I'm putting into my body.            


♥♥On my reading pile♥♥
Finished Resistance Women and will have that review up later today.  I need to check my review list to see which book is next, I can't for the life of me remember.  But, Amazon will be delivering my newest Nancy E. Turner book, and I am so excited for that. 


♥♥On my tv♥♥
Today I'll be watching the new Outlander episode from this weekend, as well as the new When Calls the Heart.

Lots of Portuguese vlogs in between, but other than that, I don't really have a list of anything specific to watch this week. 


♥♥On the menu this week♥♥

Monday - Spaghetti Bolognese, Salad
Tuesday - Chicken Egg Rolls, Chow Mein
Wednesday - Pasteis de Massa Tenra (Meat Patries), Oven Potatoes, Mixed Veggies
ThursdayBeef with Broccoli, Basmati Rice
Friday - Fried Chicken with Milk Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, baked Zucchini and Squash
Saturday - Roast Pork Tenderloins with potatoes and carrots
Sunday - Sanduiche de Forno (Oven Sandwich)


♥♥From the camera♥♥
I love crochet tablecloths, and though some may find it old fashioned, I just think it adds a cozy charm to a dining table, or anywhere for that matter.        



♥♥Looking around the house♥♥
The days are getting brighter much earlier and that brings a smile to my face.  At the moment, the sun is shining a bright golden light through the windows and the house is bathed in orange tones.  It is without a doubt my favorite time of the day.
The house is clean, save for some laundry on the back of the couches, that I let sit there to finish drying after doing laundry yesterday morning.  Will put it all away today. 


♥♥Chore I'm not looking forward to today, or this week♥♥
I need to give all the floors a good wash, and thankfully my nifty mop helps but it's still not one of my favorite household chores.           


♥♥To relax this week, I will♥♥
Definitely be reading my newest Nancy E. Turner book.            


♥♥On my prayer list♥♥
The President, our country.
My mother in law Pat and father in law Ken.
Our friend Stacey who is in ICU fighting for her life.  She is our age, and was diagnosed about 2 years ago with a brain disease that is slowly killing her.  It's heartbreaking.


♥♥Devotional/Bible Verse♥♥
"I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing."
Ezekiel 34:26

Here is sovereign mercy--"I will give them the shower in its season." Is it not sovereign, divine mercy?--for who can say, "I will give them showers," except God? There is only one voice which can speak to the clouds, and bid them beget the rain. Who sendeth down the rain upon the earth? Who scattereth the showers upon the green herb? Do not I, the Lord? So grace is the gift of God, and is not to be created by man. It is also needed grace. What would the ground do without showers? You may break the clods, you may sow your seeds, but what can you do without the rain?

As absolutely needful is the divine blessing. In vain you labour, until God the plenteous shower bestows, and sends salvation down. Then, it is plenteous grace. "I will send them showers." It does not say, "I will send them drops," but "showers." So it is with grace. If God gives a blessing, he usually gives it in such a measure that there is not room enough to receive it. Plenteous grace! Ah! we want plenteous grace to keep us humble, to make us prayerful, to make us holy; plenteous grace to make us zealous, to preserve us through this life, and at last to land us in heaven.

We cannot do without saturating showers of grace. Again, it is seasonable grace. "I will cause the shower to come down in his season." What is thy season this morning? Is it the season of drought? Then that is the season for showers. Is it a season of great heaviness and black clouds? Then that is the season for showers. "As thy days so shall thy strength be." And here is a varied blessing. "I will give thee showers of blessing." The word is in the plural. All kinds of blessings God will send. All God's blessings go together, like links in a golden chain. If he gives converting grace, he will also give comforting grace. He will send "showers of blessing." Look up today, O parched plant, and open thy leaves and flowers for a heavenly watering.

  2. I hope your allergies don't flare too much. We're not to where the sun is shining earlier yet, but I too have been enjoying some milder weather this past week. I know it won't last so I've been overdoing too to try and take advantage of it before the rain reappears later this week.

    I LOVE your crocheted tablecloth! I have several too and could care less if they are old fashioned - they are just so pretty and homey! Yours reminds me of the one they are using as Anne with an E's bed coverlet.

    Have a GREAT week my friend.
