{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 01/18/2021 }

Good morning dear friends, welcome back to my blog and to another Happy Homemaker Monday.  

I really hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready for the week ahead.  

I am just sitting down to work on this post, it is 7:30 AM and I've already gotten Jasmine off to work, did laundry and dishes.  It's shaping up to be a productive day.....and hopefully a productive week too.

Happy Monday friends, have a blessed week!
The weather outside is::::
Pretty chilly out there, and only 29 degrees.  Brrrr! 

Monday -  63
Tuesday -  53
Wednesday - 54
Thursday - 67
Friday - 62
Saturday - 63
Sunday - 72

On the breakfast plate this morning::::
I've had a cup of coffee early this morning, around 5am.  I am going to finish this post then make some Instant Pot Creamy Oatmeal.   

As I look outside my window::::
The sun is coming up giving off this beautiful orange glow.  There is no frost on the grass, thankfully which means no car windows to scrape.  Yay!!!
The birds are chirping, it is a gorgeous morning for sure.          

As I look around the house::::
Marley is walking around, Elliott is by the back screen door watching the birds on the feeder.  I need to vacuum and dust today, but aside from that, the house is clean and tidy.

What I'm wearing today::::
Grey leggings, grey baggy sweater and a cute headband.             

Currently reading::::
Halfway through Jeremiah in the Bible/
Grace for Each Day Devotional
The Harbinger II by Jonathan Cahn (I read the first Harbinger book on Saturday, zipped through it in an hour and a half)

On the TV for this week::::
Portuguese soap Bem me Quer
Portuguese soap Amor Amor
Vlogs on Youtube
On the menu this week::::
Loved the first week of slow cooked meals, it frees up my day so much and there's nothing like a hot cooked meal at the end of the day, without rushing.  
I have one more week of slow cooked meals, and I'm starting on the new meal plan for the next two weeks, which are going to be all about cooking from the Freezer and Pantry.  

The meals for Saturday and Sunday of this week, are being brought from the last menu, since I didn't get around to making them.
Monday - Crockpot Spinach Alfredo Lasagna, Copycat Pizza Hut Breadsticks
Tuesday - Slow Cooker Turkey Chili, Steamed Broccoli
Wednesday  - Slow Cooked Pizza in a Pot, Mixed Veggies
Thursday - Crockpot Tuscan Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans 
Friday - * Grocery Shopping*
Saturday - Crockpot Nachos
Sunday -  Grilled Tuna Steaks, Garlic Potatoes
Something fun to share::::
This morning I am bringing you a shorter video, but a good one nonetheless.  I truly hope you all enjoy this sweet song.
This one is from a channel called Homewood Stoves and it's called Hearth and Home
Favorite photo from the camera::::
Is there anything prettier than a photo of a cup of coffee and a sweet book?

Prayers, Inspiration quotes, Devotionals::::


  1. Good morning - I see we're both on that same early and productive mode today! I've been doing the cook from the freezer and pantry here the past couple weeks and love seeing things dwindle so I can do a deep clean of both. I also have a few bags to drop off at the local food pantry. We have a huge homeless population in the surrounding areas that seems to have gotten worse during the pandemic and I want to help somehow.

    Glad your weather is looking more moderate. I hope your week is wonderful!

  2. Good morning! Productivity abounds here, I must have caught it from you!
    Thank you for being an inspiration for me!

  3. My mind is feeling very productive and full of ideas around here today. The rest of me isn't being quite as cooperative. Hope you have a wonderful and super productive week!

  4. Hello Sandra,
    It has been a while since I participated with Happy Homemaker Monday, but I enjoyed your post and was interested in your slow cook meals. I have decided to concentrate one day of the week for the making of several weekly meals; not necessarily slow cooked though. All the videos that Hearth and Home create and post are some of my most favorite...Have a good rest of your week.

  5. Hello Dear Friend! Happy new week to you. 😊 Your menu sounds so good! You're making me want to dig out my slow cooker cookbook and plan some new meals. Lol Love the cozy videos you share so much. Blessings to you xoxo

  6. Good Morning! I'm a day late with my Happy Homemaker post. I love using having meals warm and ready to go. I may have to plan a few weeks with crockpot meals.
    Hope you have a wonderful week!

  7. LOVED LOVED that video, had to share it on FB.
    So late in coming here this week. Think I'll try to use my crockpot more next week, it truly gives us some time to do something else and the smell in the house is such a comfort.
    Have a great week
