{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 04/27/2020 }

Good morning everyone, I hope this Monday finds you doing well.

We are on the very last Happy Homemaker Monday, of April, how crazy to think that another month has quickly zipped by.

We had a very good, quiet weekend, as always, especially nowadays, but it also seemed to go so quickly that I wasn't ready for it to be Monday.  The good thing is that hubby works this morning and then he is actually working from home for the next two weeks, unless they open the base up completely, at which case he will be back at work again.

He is the only instructor who has worked non stop and didn't have any time off during this pandemic, so we are hoping he is able to have at least a few days off, but we shall see.

I hope you all have a fantastic week ahead.   :)

Happy Homemaker Monday

We are not only in full Spring weather but very much headed into summer temperatures, which means our pool goes up today and I for one can no wait.

♥♥How I am feeling this morning♥♥
Feeling really good, aside from the usual allergies but I think when you have them you get to a point that it's just part of your day so you kind of push through it and ignore it LOL     

♥♥On my mind♥♥
My mind has been going a mile a minute lately, I've been digging really deep into time with God, devotionals, sermons and so forth.  I always find that when I start doing this the quench for wanting to learn more and soak in all of God's word, is like nothing else.  So, with that said, I have tons of thoughts going through my mind, things I want to do, books in the Bible I want to read and bible studies I want to do.  Yes, lots of that going on.                     

♥♥On the breakfast plate♥♥
I've had coffee and nothing else, but I'll probably have some cereal.  I have eaten way too much this weekend.  Curt picked up donuts on Saturday morning and y'all, donuts and I are just a bad bad combination.  I would devour a whole dozen by myself, so I have to force myself to have just one or two.  Though I had 3 on Saturday and then 2 yesterday.  Sigh.  Time to detox LOL     

♥♥On my reading pile♥♥
Simon the Fiddler by Paulette Jiles. 

♥♥On my tv♥♥
Youtube vlogs
World on Fire
The Chosen
When Calls the Heart

♥♥On the menu this week♥♥
Will be working on a new menu for the next two weeks.  I actually plan on going grocery shopping on Friday.  It's been a month since I've gone out to the commissary myself, but since most of our city has opened up, I am going to take the opportunity and head out.....with a mask of course.

Monday - Grilled Philly Cheesesteak and German Bratwurst, Potato Salad
Tuesday - Gnocchi Bolognese, Garlic Bread Knots
Wednesday - Deep Dish Sausage Pizza
Thursday -  Bean burritos, Spanish rice
Friday - Spaghetti, Salad
Saturday -

♥♥From the camera♥♥
My garden is coming alive.  Love all the pops of color against the green backdrop. 

♥♥Looking around the house♥♥
I've just finished opening my curtains, all through the house.  Some windows have been opened too to let in the fresh morning air.  It's a bit cloudy outside so we have a cool breeze coming in and it feels wonderful.  Kids are still asleep, hubby is off to work, so the house is quiet.       

♥♥Chore I'm not looking forward to today, or this week♥♥
I need to clean carpets again and it's not a chore I particularly like doing.  There's just so much carpet in this house and so it's one of those jobs that takes a whole day to do.  

♥♥To relax this week, I will♥♥
Swim in the pool, work on my garden and read.       

♥♥On my prayer list♥♥
* The President and our country.
* My friend Courtney's husband who is battling brain cancer.
* My friend Christina who's mom is in the hospital, back in South Africa.

♥♥Devotional/Bible Verse♥♥
Pastor Furtick has been doing an incredible sermon series on Looking forward to the new normal.    It has been so good, soooooo good, that I urge you to take a look if you can, it will change the way you perceive the situation around us.


  1. Morning! Yummy menu again, have fun shopping! I'm lucky here, my state has only had 28 cases in total, all of which came into the state as travellers, and no community transmission, so we have not had to do lockdown or anything like that. We did close our borders too, and have banned everyone from coming in, except essential workers. Loving the garden pics! Have a great week.

  2. Your menu sounds great as usual, and I'm so glad Texas is opening back up little by little! My father in law told me on the phone yesterday he was tired of Texas being locked down!!! Have a blessed day!

  3. Your menu sounds very yummy! I have made several dishes from your recipes and they all turned out delicious! My family especially loved the Better than Olive Garden Alfredo. We haven't done true grocery shopping in a while either. I have been utilizing the Walmart Online Grocery Pick-up service and it has been wonderful, but I do miss normal shopping and being able to pick out my own food. Have fun shopping and be safe!

  4. Hope your husband gets his time off. Certainly sounds if he deserves it! Donuts sound fantastic, I'd be able to eat a dozen on my own as well. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  5. Your poor hubby - I hope he gets a break soon. And I'm completely with you on the donuts thing - they're my kryptonite too. Lol 😂 You truly are getting some warm temps!! I think the pool sounds like a perfect plan. I'm planning on garlic knots this week too with lazy lasagna (made with ravioli). I'm going to try to make from scratch from the new Magnolia cookbook. 😋 Have a blessed week ahead dear Gal. xoxo
