{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 03/15/2021 }

Good morning everyone, welcome back to my little corner of blogland.
 
How was your weekend?  How was your week?
 
I apologize for not getting to your blogs and your HHM posts last week, but it was just not a good one for us.  We lost a few people we knew, it just seemed to have been one of those weeks where one of your friends passes, and then you find out someone else does, and within a few days someone else.
 
I am hoping and praying that this week is better.
 

♥♥The Weather♥♥ 
Last week I was hoping that Spring weather had arrived, and it certainly did.  We have had such beautiful warm days, and it is continuing throughout this week.  It also means the rains are arriving, and next month we head into Tornado season.  Not looking forward to that.    


Monday - 72
Tuesday -  84
Wednesday - 65
Thursday -  64
Friday - 65
Saturday -  72
Sunday -  71


♥♥How I am feeling this morning♥♥
I am tired folks.  Insomnia is not a fun thing to go through, and these past few weeks, it has been rearing it's ugly head.
I was sleeping quite well last night, and woke up at 2:30 AM, that was it.  Couldn't fall asleep the rest of the night.  There is nothing like staring at the clock, seeing the minutes go by and not being able to go back to sleep.  I have a busy day today, lots of appointments and errands, which means, no chance of sitting down for a bit to rest.          


 ♥♥On the breakfast plate♥♥
Just a cup of coffee, will have some toast later.    


♥♥On my reading pile♥♥ 
Still working my way through Ezequiel in the Bible.
My daily devotional book.
Who's Who in the Bible (review book)
 

 ♥♥On my tv♥♥
Have fallen really behind on my Portuguese soaps, I am now two weeks behind, but oh well, I'll catch up eventually.  
Nothing else on my list, I do catch a few homemaking vlogs here and there, or a random youtube video, but nothing I'm currently watching. 


♥♥On the menu this week♥♥ 
Quite a few meals didn't get eaten the past two weeks, so I'm shifting those to the next two weeks meal plan.  
 
Monday - Sausages in Tomato Sauce, Spaghetti noodles, fried cabbage
Tuesday - Rotisserie Chicken, Ono's Hawaiian Macaroni Salad
Wednesday - Chicken enchiladas, cilantro lime rice
Thursday - Steaks with pepper sauce, garlic spaghetti, sauteed squash
Friday - *Grocery shopping*
Saturday - BBQ Burgers, Potato Salad, Maple Bacon Beans, Hotdogs
Sunday - Leftovers


 
♥♥Looking around the house♥♥
This daylight savings always messed with me.  I was so used to getting up with the sun and it would be bright by this time of the day, but it is still pitch black outside.  
I need to tidy up the house today, vacuum and carpet clean is also on the agenda.  I am just hoping I can get to it all between errands and appointments.

♥♥To relax this week, I will♥♥
I am just going to say nap.  I think that is what I will try and do to relax this week. 


♥♥Something I want to share♥♥ 
I think by now you all know the channel The Fairyland Cottage.  She is one of my favorites and I love everything she shares, from her quiet life, to teaching us wonderful tips and tricks, and sharing the beautiful area she lives in.  
 
Here is her newest video called The Joy of a Slow Life.


♥♥Devotional, inspirational, prayer list or Bible verse♥♥

My heart is just broken. I mentioned our friend Isa and her battle with cancer. She had been battling ovarian cancer for about a year now. About 2 or 3 weeks ago her doctors had told her she had but 2 to 3 months left. Unfortunately she went home to be with the Lord last week. Isabel left behind her parents, a sister and a brother, and her husband and two children, the oldest was only 15.  Heartbreaking!

A day after Isa's death, we found out an old friend of ours in Portugal passed away.  Just 5 days later, his brother passed as well.

Please pray for all these families, they need comfort and strength through this difficult grieving period.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about your week. The passing of those we love is never easy. I will keep you all in my prayers. I am glad you are having some nice spring weather before the rains. BTW have you tried Melatonin chewies? Check with your doctor. Mine put me on 30mg (started at 10 and increased over a few weeks) and I now sleep through the night most of the time. Best part is they are over the counter and fairly inexpensive.
