{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 03/29/2021 }

Good morning dear friends.  I hope this post finds you well.
I don't have a lot of time this morning to get this up, I overslept, for the first in about a year, I would say.  I think it is my body's way of telling me to slow down.  God is forcing me to stop, to rest and to work on replenishing my soul.
It's been hard, I'm not going to lie, but I'm working my way through the muddy water, trying to get back to my old self and to my usual blog posting.  I mentioned a while back that while I was doing my blog to book, I was sad that some years didn't have much of blogging, but were rather filled with just the Happy Homemaker Monday posts, and book reviews, and that was NOT what I wanted my blog to be.
Yet, here we are again.  It just is what it is for the moment.  Better that than nothing at all, that's what my husband tells me.
Anyway, good morning, I hope you all have a blessed week ahead, and let's get right on with our post.

♥♥How I am feeling this morning♥♥
I'm doing ok.  Slept well last night, and slept in, so that's always good. 

 ♥♥On the breakfast plate♥♥
Cup of coffee with Peppermint mocha, and will probably just have toast.  My stomach is a bit off which always happens when I'm stressed.  

♥♥On my reading pile♥♥ 
Almost done with Ezequiel in the Bible.
The Girl in the Painting by Tea Cooper 

 ♥♥On my tv♥♥
Just random Youtube Videos when I have a spare moment, or when I'm cooking dinner etc.
I remember when I used to have a huge list under this category, kind of miss those days.  I need to see what is on TV that interests me, and maybe start catching up with some shows.

♥♥On the menu this week♥♥ 
I'm hoping to pick up my Weekly Meals videos again.  Hopefully soon, might try this week, and see how it goes.   I am working on the new meal plan this week, and will be grocery shopping on Friday, so don't have meals for that day or Saturday yet.
Monday - Butter Beef Roast, Basmati Rice, Roast Spaghetti Squash
Tuesday - Hamburger Helper, Salad
Wednesday - BBQ Chicken, Potato Salad
Thursday - Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans
Friday -
Sunday - Brunch (Sausage Casserole, Bacon, Biscuits and Gravy)

♥♥Looking around the house♥♥
We had a really busy weekend, had to go to Oklahoma to deal with my mother in law's house, the one she left to Curt and his brother Chris.  It's a whole mess going on there.
Anyway, everything I needed to do in my own house, got pushed to the side, so I have a lot of cleaning to do today and this week. 

♥♥To relax this week, I will♥♥
I have absolutely no clue, just going to take it one day at a time.

♥♥Something I want to share♥♥ 
Today's video is another from the Village Foods channel.  It is called Heavenly healthy tropical
 fruit.  Hope you enjoy ♥  



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

We are under such a tremendous spiritual war.  As Christians we need to be praying without ceasing, and we need to remember to put on the Armor of God, daily.  It really is imperative that we do this without fail.

I put on the armor every single day, twice a day matter of fact.  In the morning and then in the evening before bed.  I tend to see it as a normal armor, that when you're at war all day long, it is bound to have dents and kinks and will need repairs to sustain the attacks.  So at night, I replace it or repair it.  Just a reminder for us all. 


  1. You are so very right we are under some spiritual warfare... the struggle is real. Guard your hearts/body with that armor! Being still and resting is something I need to take heed of at times as well, our bodies will definitely let us know when we need it, whether we like it or not. Happy Monday!!

  2. Amen on the armor and what's needed in this age of spiritual warfare stronger than ever! And don't beat yourself up on needing rest time and not blogging as much. We all go through chapters and seasons in our lives. And if you forced it, then it wouldn't be authentic anyway. Continued prayers for all your dealing with at your MIL's house too. 🙏 Blessings on your week. xo

  3. Carambola are so cute in a fruit salad! Love these.
    Hope you have a great week

  4. Our bodies are good at letting us know when we need to take things easy. Peppermint will help try a probiotic to help with the good bacteria to repair the imbalance.

  5. I've been having the same blog struggles and am striving for the resolve to make it once again what I want. I do fear that it may not happen as quickly as I'd like. I also feel for you as you struggle with Curt's mom's house as we are having such a difficult time with Skip's mom's house and his younger sister's antics. And you are so right that God's armor is a daily necessity! Have a GREAT rest of the week.

  6. Thank you for the reminder about praying unceasingly. I'm in the same boat with blogging as you mentioned you saw in some years. I post my Friday's Fave Five faithfully and book reviews but I don't seem to have the head space or the creativity to post anything else right now. I miss the old days of blogging forming friendships.
