{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 05/16/2022 }

Good morning my sweet friends.  Hope you've all had a wonderful weekend.
Mine was good, albeit a bit busy yesterday, but we are thanking God for many blessings last week, namely the sale of my mother in law's house.  Finally, after almost a year of trying to finalize things, we were able to close.  Can't tell you how thankful and happy we are for that.  
I am now free of that stress, so able to actually start focusing more on my house, my homemaking and blogging.  I haven't even been on Instagram much either, just haven't had the time or focus for any of it.
Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful blessed week.  Let's see what is happening in our Homemaker Mondays. 

♥♥ The Weather ♥♥
It's is HOT!!!!  We had 104 degree weather this weekend and this coming week we are seeing triple digits for a couple of days.  Lord help us, we went from Winter straight to Summer.  Hahahahah 

Monday -  Sunny to partly cloudy, 90
Tuesday - Partly cloudy and windy, 103
Wednesday - Sunny and windy, 106
Thursday - Mostly sunny and windy, 107
Friday - Mostly sunny, 98
Saturday - Partly cloudy, 78
Sunday - Mostly sunny, 82

♥♥  As I look outside my window ♥
It is an absolutely gorgeous day.  There is not a cloud in the sky, the sky is a deep blue, and as a backdrop against the green of the trees, it surely looks like a painting.  
From my window, I can see the fields behind the property.  I love having this view.

♥♥  Right now I am ♥♥
I am typing up this post, while listening to the trial on the TV.  I am also waiting to hear from the bank as to the house sale, so that we can go ahead and make some payments that need to be made. 

♥♥  Thinking and pondering ♥♥
About the goodness of God.  How faithful and good He is, all the time.  On this house sale.  Curt and I just need it over and done with, so we can get out from this financial strain we've been under the past 2 years. 

♥♥  How am I feeling ♥♥
A little tired, I was out of the door yesterday at 7am, and didn't sit down for the rest of the day, until 6pm. But happy and blessed, nonetheless. 

♥♥  On the breakfast plate ♥♥
I had some coffee and a cheese and ham sandwich. 

♥♥  On my reading pile ♥♥

♥♥  On the menu  ♥♥ 
Y'all I got groceries on Friday, and oh my word, my budget has doubled, and I'm getting nowhere near the amount of food I used to.  Plus most of the things I need are not in stock. Crazy I tell you.

Monday - Ground Beef Stroganoff, Rice, Beans
Tuesday - Chicken and Sausage Ragu, Fried Cabbage
Thursday - Taco Stuffed Shells, Salad
Friday - Roadside Diner Cheeseburger Quiche, Sauteed Collard Greens
Saturday - Chicken Bolognese, Garlic Bread
Sunday - Hubby's Birthday - Country Style Ribs, Baked Potato, Salad, Lemon Cake

♥♥  Looking around the house  ♥♥
It's quiet, all that we can hear are the birds outside in the yard.  The furry babies are sleeping.  I need to fold some laundry and put it away, and give the living room couches a tidy up, just fix the pillows etc. 

♥♥  To Do List ♥♥
-  Water the veggie garden
-  Pay bills
- Prepare wire transfers
- Take meat out for dinner

♥♥  From the camera  ♥♥
Last week I made a Zucchini Pizza Casserole.  The base is shredded zucchini, and oh my goodness, it was absolutely delicious.
I really need to get these recipes up on the food blog, just haven't had time. 

♥♥  Devotional  ♥♥
We are guilty.  The cross purchased our forgiveness.  We are unable.  The Spirit gives us power.  We are foolish.  God's Word provides wisdom. 
New Morning Mercies Devotional by Paul David Tripp
