Happy Homemaker Monday // April 29, 2019

Right, so jumping back in here…

This week we are pulling ourselves together and forging ahead! Really, what is there to do besides that? We were not expecting another blow like this, but I’m sure there is a reason for it so we will try to remain optimistic that my husband gets a new job soon and we will keep plugging along.

In the meantime, let’s get back to it. It’s Monday, the sun is shining, and it’s a brand-new day. Time to link up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay-at-Home-Mom for Happy Homemaker Monday.

{The weather}
Brr! Is it almost May or is it almost November? It was so cold all weekend, and looks to be a chilly week ahead.

{On my reading pile}
I’m in between books at the moment. Thinking of starting Mary Karr’s memoir Lit.

{Movies or Shows I watched this weekend}
Nothing really, just reruns for background noise, mostly.

{On my TV this week}
Honestly, I have no idea! There’s nothing I’m dying to watch at the moment and I have a really busy week ahead of me.

{On the menu for this week}
I’m not sure what I’ll be doing at the end of the week. I have kids going to visit grandparents, going to birthday parties, going to work… I’ll figure the rest out later, but at least I have the first three days planned.

Monday: Hunter’s sausage, mashed potatoes, steamed veggies
Tuesday: Grilled London broil, baked potatoes, salad
Wednesday: Meatballs and spaghetti

{On my to do list}
— Laundry (obviously)
Organize my craft supplies
— Vacuum/wash floors
— Clean bathrooms

{What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating}
I still have to finish crocheting that baby blanket, which may or may not ever see its intended recipient. If not, I’ll just save it for another time or sell it.

I’m itching to get my sewing machine out. Did you know that scrunchies are back? Oh yes, they are. So L. has been asking for them and I have lots of elastic and fabric so I think I’ll make her a bunch.

{Looking forward to…}
The high school band and choral concert is this week. The teachers and students always do such an amazing job. I can’t believe how talented some of these kids are!

{Looking around the house}
Ah, the remnants from the weekend are strewn about, but really it could be worse. I’ll finish up this blog post, send off a couple emails and then straighten things out.

{From the camera}
This picture is actually from last week, Easter to be exact. My mother-in-law got a new puppy and even though I am not really a dog person, I think she is so sweet and just the cutest! She is some sort of terrier and her name is Sarah. (There were dog treats in those eggs, LOL!)

{What I’m wearing today}
Just jeans and a t-shirt!

{One of my simple pleasures}
I love opening the back door when I wake up and taking in a breath of fresh air.

{Bible verse, Devotional, prayers}
Lots of people on my prayer list this week. Seems we know a lot of people who are going through difficult times for a variety of reasons.

I hope your week is off to a good start!
