{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 01/25/2021 }

8:08 AM

Good morning sweet ladies, welcome back to my little corner of the world.

It is a dreary, cloudy, rainy morning.  We actually had very strong storms in the middle of the night, strong enough that golf sized hail pummeled down on the roof of the house.  Haven't seen a storm like that in months, my goodness.

Anyway, I hope you all have a blessed week ahead, we are about to end the month of January, how is that even possible?  First month of 2021 under our belts.  Wow!

Alright, let's see what we all have going on in our homes.....

♥♥The Weather♥♥ 
As I said above, we got hit with a random strong storm last night.  It looks like the rest of the week is going to be cloudy with some possible rain storms, here and there.  

Monday - 65, partly cloudy
Tuesday - 53, sunny
Wednesday - 48, partly cloudy
Thursday -  51, mostly cloudy
Friday - 62, partly cloudy
Saturday -  64, am showers
Sunday - 60, sunny

♥♥How I am feeling this morning♥♥
Pretty good, got some much needed sleep, even though the storm woke me up at 2am, with the hail and the flashing of the lightning.  

♥♥On my mind♥♥ 

Just thinking about the week ahead and trying to plan accordingly.  Have a few things I want to go get done, so hoping to get it all down on a list, and cross things off.  Fingers crossed, because I noticed that as much as I like writing lists, I'm not a list follower and depend more on my own brain to keep me accountable.  

 ♥♥On the breakfast plate♥♥
Just had a cup of coffee with peppermint mocha creamer.  Not sure what I'm going to eat later.     

♥♥On my reading pile♥♥ 
Almost done with Jeremiah.
My daily devotional book.
I Have Lived a Thousand Years by Livia Bitton-Jackson

 ♥♥On my tv♥♥
Portuguese Soaps, Bem Me Quer and Amor Amor
Brazilian show called Genesis, based on the book of Genesis in the Bible. 
Yesterday I watched Night Stalker on Netflix.  It was only 4 episodes long but very interesting.
Planning on watching more shorter series throughout the week.

♥♥On the menu this week♥♥ 

Monday - Sausage and Broccoli Skillet, Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Tuesday - Cheater Chicken and Dumplings
Wednesday - Slow Cooker Pizza in a Pot, Roast Squash and Zucchini
Thursday - Impossibly Easy Sausage and Bacon Pie, Fried Cabbage
Friday - Oven Chili Dogs, Creamy Garlic Oven Fries
Saturday - Turkey Pot Pie, Creamed Peas
Sunday - Teriyaki Steak, Rice

♥♥From the camera♥♥
My sweet boy, last week.  He had pulled a leg muscle and wasn't moving around much.  I took this photo because he pulled down my crochet pillow to lay on.  ♥  


♥♥Looking around the house♥♥

Both kids are asleep, Jasmine is off today.  Elliott is asleep on my bed, Marley is asleep in the living room.  The house looks dark due to the weather outside.  Thankfully it is tidy.  I find that once the kids got older, they contain their messes to their bedrooms (that's a whole other blog post), which mean smy house itself stays clean and organized. 

♥♥New recipe I tried last week, or one that we really enjoyed♥♥

Made a new recipe but for my Marley.  I've been cooking home cooked meals for him, for a few months now, due to his food allergies and sensitive stomach.  I'll be taking a photo of the food today and adding the recipe to the food blog, so if that interests you, keep an eye out for that to be posted this afternoon.  

♥♥To relax this week, I will♥♥
Read and crochet.  Also watch some TV.

  ♥♥Something I want to share♥♥ 

So today I'm bringing you another sweet video by one of my favorite Youtube Channels, The Cottage Fairy.


♥♥On my prayer list♥♥
Praying for a friend's son, who is struggling a bit right now.
Praying for my stepmom who is dealing with a throat infection.

  1. Such a cozy vlog video.
    Glad that storm didn't do any serious damages. Hoping you have a great week

  2. Hope poor Marley feels better soon. It's hard when our fur babies don't feel good. Our lab has a sensitivity to food too. She gets a rash and stomach issues. I think it's all the junk they put in the dog food.
    Have a wonderful week.

  3. Hello my Friend!
    I can't imagine having storms like that right now. Lol Only blizzards around here. 😉 I always love the vlogs you share so much. And loving your slow cooker meals! ❤️ Happy week ahead. xo

  4. Hope Marley is feeling much better! How odd to get a thunderstorm in January. We had rain and a bit of wind overnight but nothing too intense. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  5. OH MY GOSH did this week get away from me or what? It's now Wednesday and I'm frantically trying to lay catch up! That picture of Marley is adorable, but I sure hope he's feeling better. We've been getting some weird and COLD storms here too, but I LOVE it! I hope your week is going well.
