Good Morning Happy Monday and Who is ready for some Turkey?

Linking up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay At Home Mom http://familycorner.blogspot.com/2016/11/happy-homemaker-monday-11212016.html

 As I look outside my window... Chilly 59 degrees

Right now I am...taking a break while I drink my coffee

Thinking and pondering... So happy one of my Sisters will be traveling here to spend Thanksgiving.


  On my bedside table... My Bible


On my TV... Drawing a blank lol haven't had time I guess bits and pieces of the office cant wait for Gilmore Girls!

Playing on the radio... KLOVE

On the menu for this week...
will be working around house so need easy meals...

Monday - c/p meal
Tuesday - c/p chicken
Wednesday - Spaghetti, Salad and Garlic bread
Thursday -Thanksgiving and all that it entails!!!! Yippee!
Friday - well leftovers of course lol actually we might eat out only because we will take my sister out
Saturday - probably something with turkey in it lol
Sunday -  C/P meal


  On my to do list...
Finish my sons room, finish getting house ready for guests. put up Christmas or at least tree.








What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
I haven't had time


My simple pleasure... Prayer and Music and lots of coffee




Lesson learned the past week...
continue to know that I can do all though Christ who gives me strength. It is so true that if you commit your work to the lord you will succeed. im sure it seems so silly to those that do not have a relationship with the lord but even or I should say especially the little things get done if I just ask for energy and to have a productive day.

 
Looking around the house...:::covers eyes:::






From the camera...
My daughter sent me these photos from a close friends princess party. She had not one but 5 princesses! also a photo of my daughter and our God Son.

 Prayer List...
Safe Travels for all those on the road for the holidays


Bible Verse, Devotional...

The weather outside is...
 It's a sunny 55 degrees : )
  
On the breakfast plate this morning...
A very early bowl of cornflakes. Right now I am having coffee and will probably have an egg sandwich soon.


As I look outside my window...
 It is a beautiful cool morning, The flowers are blowing in the breeze and I hear birds chirping.


Right now I am...

 Starting to lose my energy... enter cup #2 of coffee : )

As I look around the house...
 My Husband and Son are working on floors so all my sons furniture, etc. has been moved into the living room. The way I would describe it is what I imagine the beginning of a  hoarders house looks like or Lanes House from Gilmore Girls. I Cant wait to get furniture back to where it belongs.


On today's to do list...
My List is too long-mostly to do with Thanksgiving prep. but today is Wash: sheets, blankets, towels day. and pick up I've already done kitchen, so just the usual swish & swipe of bathrooms, vacuum, and Dust/Windex around home.


 Happening this week...
New floors in sons room, put furniture back in and help him re arrange room. take out everything from kitchen cabinets clean and put back in. oh...Clean & Organize all the things. It seems Spring Cleaning comes at least 3 times a year and it competes with that bomb that likes to go off at least once a month. I honestly don't know how (or will I ever be like)  some women have immaculate homes 24/7 or all white everything and not a smudge to be seen. I feel If I stop for one day it just piles up but you know that's ok because it's real life.


Currently reading...
The Bible



On the TV today...

Other than possible shows with family and maybe Longmire with hubby I'm taking a break from TV after all the election coverage I do not want to even turn on a TV. I will say I just binge watched the whole first season of the Crown in 4 days OH MY! was it good! I really hope they add a second season soon on Netflix.
(Thanks for the recommendation Billie Jo) The show has me wanting to read more about the royal family. if you haven't watched it  I highly recommend it.



 On the menu this week...
Monday - Tostadas
Tuesday - Ribs in c/p with Coca-Cola
Wednesday - Enchiladas
Thursday - ?
Friday - Pizza
Saturday - ?
Sunday - ?



What I am creating at the moment...
 Lists...lots of Lists. and my planner
   

New recipe I tried or want to try this week...
 A pasta dish from IG


Favorite photo from the camera...
I Love to see my husband teaching my son new things. Here they are installing new flooring in Adams room. His carpet had to be replaced due to a water heater leak.

My Baby Boy turned 14 on Nov. 10  per his request we just had a small family get together. It is like pulling teeth getting him to tell us what he wants. This boy hardly ever asks for anything, and if he does its something like Gum or a new Xbox and he usually puts big items only on his Christmas list. Now my daughter She could rattle off ten things a day! (and five of them would be book titles lol)  now I understand why some people say 
"Boys are so much easier"

Happy Homemaker Monday Wednesday


A very late HHM:
I do not like being late but sometimes I am very early for things and then end up being late. Does that ever happen to you? Well I could either forget about it or go on and today...I'm going to go on...


Happy Homemaker Monday - 11.7.2016

Well Helllloooo Friends,

I hope you had a Happy Halloween. Mine was different than I am use to because my "babies"  (13&17) did not dress up or go trick or treating.  : (  I tried but they just didn't feel it this year.
*If I would of known I would of had us dress up for my God Sons Birthday party but I am grateful I got them all to at least wear Charlie Brown Shirts...


 We still had our usual Pizza & Halloween Movies night but I REALLY missed the costumes and trick or treating, even if we just go to neighbors, family and a few close friends homes. I just felt a bit sad thinking about how my children are big kids now. I even tried telling Bella but next year you will officially be an adult!  She didn't buy it. lol

The weather outside is...

Sunday - Crock Pot meal?  Roast either garlic or with veggies


What I am creating at the moment..
I received some Happy Mail from a very sweet friend on IG who was de-stashing her planner stickers, so of course I had to back track and add them to my Halloween week lol  and also...
Planner Ribbon Clips me and my daughter started making (just a few) for Halloween, so we could attach to goodies for her friends, then we made in school colors, then I made some  homemade cookies for a volunteer luncheon and made a couple for a good friend of mine, then one of my sons teachers. and now I cant stop...We are starting on Thanksgiving & Christmas colors.





New recipe I tried or want to try this week...

Weather...
I am loving the weather today, its a chilly 64 degrees with a light drizzle. Forecast calls for high 80's this week but I'm like a kid covering my eyes and ears because I don't want to hear that....la la la la la I love fall lol

On my bedside table...
 Lamp, Kleenex, Jesus Calling. and Hannah's list...re-reading before I re-donate back to our local bookstore.

On my TV...
 Me and my daughter watched an episode of The Office, and Footloose. Kiddos watched Star Wars because they didn't feel like joining me & hubby for one of our favorites: You've got mail.
We Love this movie. I try to watch some of my MeTV shows during the day: Gun Smoke, Bonanza, The Rifle Man and Emergency. I don't know why I struggle with remembering to just sit down and take time to watch these but when I do I love it. I had tried setting my alarm to watch Ellen every weekday- hasn't worked. Makes me miss VCRs since we don't have cable.

  
Thinking and pondering...
 Trying not to because I know it will lead to thoughts of my daughter becoming an adult and going off to college soon. I am instead trying to just enjoy our time together with family.
and thinking about one of my nephews & his wife.


Listening to...
Little Women Soundtrack, Rain falling outside, Hum of Dryer, and doggies collars jingling around.

Favorite Youtube Video last week...
I never tire of this fall home tour... Maymay made it  crafts "mom's fall home tour 2014" she has updated ones also but this ones my fave her momma is so cute! and I love her home.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rAW5-vOOEg


On the menu for this week...
So looking forward to more soups and baking for the fall season.

Monday-Caldo de Res, Mexican Rice, with Corn Tortillas
Tuesday-Chicken Parmesan with spaghetti
Wednesday-Crock Pot meal: Smothered Pork Chops, White Rice & Green Beans.

Thursday-BBQ Drumsticks, Mashed Potato's,  Corn
Friday-Chicken Enchiladas, Mexican Rice & Refried Beans with Cheese.


On my To Do List...
Laundry
Restrooms
Dust/Windex
Purge paperwork-I've been slacking on the mail as it comes in and now I have a stack to go though on my desk-blah

Looking forward to...
Fall break with Family, My God Sons Birthday next month, Getting together with friends in a couple of weeks.

What I plan on doing for myself this week...
 Watching my TV shows including Longmire, 2nd season just started on Netflix.

Favorite photo...
We attended Movies in the canyon this weekend, they were showing Brave. We love Disney films : )




Lesson learned the past few days...
Once again that life is short, me & hubby just attended a Rosary last night...I've lost count of funerals I have attended this year.


Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses...

Happy Homemaker Monday 8.29.2016


Hello Hope you had a great weekend ours was spent for the most part relaxing but we also got in some shopping, and we also went to what's called Minerpalooza a fun event held by our local university to kick-off the new school year.  We attend most years and this year I got to say was  different very crowded and the music was not my cup of tea, If its got a good beat and my daughter can dance to it and have a good time I am all for it but this year the guys performing  had big time potty mouths. call me old fashioned but is that really necessary? I will never understand it. and again I know you can't shield your children from all these kinds of things but it came to the point where it got pretty vulgar and I said we are outta here!
later that day I had my hubby laughing as I recited a scene from the breakfast club..."God did not put me on this green earth to be awakened by a foul mouth hooligan like you"

Weather...
 Right now its a cool 70 degrees, we have had rain and I am loving it.

On my bedside table...
Books
Rosary
Lotion

On my TV...
 I Watched Toy Story with my son on Saturday morning, You Tube videos with My daughter Sunday, and me and hubby stayed up late and had a movie night at home...got to get those "dates" whenever you can and if that means cuddling up on couch you take it. We have been busy running around and since we have a high school senior, our date budget pretty much goes out the window, but no complaints from us. We picked up some wine (a beer for hubby) chocolate, snacks you know your basic junk food, hubby rented My big fat Greek wedding II and we had a cozy night in. loved everything except the wine I went with the Moscato that was on sale and momma was not happy.  I'm not a wine coinsurer but I should of stuck with what I know which is a very short list of wines I know I like... hum funny how a TV list turned into wine list lol and yes I guess I am cheap wine kind of gal all wines are under $10 If  you like wine please share what you recommend.




 Thinking and pondering:...
 How this world has changed, My daughters school does not hold a Sadie Hawkins dance but today they are having Gender Bender day, My daughter didn't participate but one of her good buddies did, he borrowed one of Bella's blouses then ended up not wearing it-Bellas said boy if he was a girl he would be high maintenance. I am wondering how the day is going for him.

Listening to...
KLOVE,  skipping around on my spotify playlists stuff like Claire de Lune, 80's new wave and  as always The Little Women Soundtrack. I listen to it all year long,



Favorite Youtube Video last week...
I Love Day In The Life Vlogs, They motivate me when I need that little push to get going. I started following Our Farmhouse Life because of a common interest in the fly lady and fell in love with the simple life they live. I wish I had the space she has to hang wash outdoors.

Favorite photo...
We went dress shopping this weekend and stopped in White Barn. I fell in love with this display. Those Sunflowers! Me and a Lady were both taking photos of them, She says to me "oh look they are for sale, how much do you think they are?"  I said hum? around $50 BINGO!  I then said bye pretty sunflowers I'll see you at the after the holiday sale lol but now I'm thinking what the heck would I do with those huge flowers anyway. now the candles that's another story. I can never have enough!







 Lesson learned the past few days...
You can't always get what ya want...see above photos
I want ALL the Candles! BBW White Barn, Yankee and Wal-Mart's  too!




Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses...
1 Kings 3:11-14
And God said to him, " Because you have asked this, and have not asked for yourself long life or riches or the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern what is right, behold I now do according to your word. Behold I give you a wise and discerning mind, so that none like you has been before you and none like you shall arise after you. I give you also what you have not asked, both riches and honor, so that no other king shall compare with you, all your days. And if you will walk in my ways, keeping my statutes and my commandments, as your father David walked, then I will lengthen your days."

Happy Homemaker 8.22.2016

Good Morning,
I hope you all had a great week and even better weekend. Other than attending an Award ceremony for our daughter for her Robotics accomplishments We didn't do much which is fine by me. We did get a bit of rain which we loved. We had planned on visiting some family and friends this weekend but Life happens...We actually had a flood warning this Sunday so we couldn't of went out as planned either way. We did have Family Bible Study around the table, I love Church but I love time in the word with my family at home too. it makes my heart smile to see them grow in faith.

Weather ...
 Not bad, at least a lot cooler and I am loving the rain.


On my bedside table...
 Bible, Devotionals, about five books, and Kindle, my Bath & Body Works  lotion; Sleep. night time tea. Have you tried it? I love the smell.



On my TV...
Me and My daughter watched twilight actually the second one I cant keep track of the titles, She is always so busy with school so it was great to have a little bonding time over the weekend.
Me and hubby watched No Country for old men - Not sure about this one, the main guy was pretty creepy and the ending...Lord I do not like bad endings. :::rolling eyes:::
The family watched One of the star wars episodes again I have no clue my son picked and I watched we also started pay it forward.
Thinking about...
Too many things... Our Daughter is a senior and almost 18 and I feel its all coming at once, senior year, photos, class ring, homecoming, prom,18th birthday, graduation, college. so many events going on at school and in life the days are flying. My Son will be starting his second year My daughter her last of RCIA and I wonder why we waited so long. I miss my family in Ca. We just celebrated my Mother & My oldest sister's birthday. they both have passed and its always bitter sweet. There is so much I want to do. I have to stop, catch my breath and Give it all to God. I know it will all work out in the end.

Listening to...
The birds chirping outside, the sound of a neighbors broom, the dogs are snoring and the fan lightly hums. while the little women soundtrack plays softly in the background of it all.

Favorite Youtube Video last week...
Oh that is a loaded question as I am addicted to YouTube
I enjoy mostly homey videos, I haven't had a chance to watch as much but I did finish one of my favorites...She's in her Apron.
then this morning when I couldn't sleep I found myself watching mug/rug candle mat tutorials. A girl can dream cant she. Someday I'll make one. or most likely buy one hee hee


 On the menu for this week...
I have not been keeping up on my menu plan, mostly because I feel its the same items, but I think its also because I am anxious to start  fall cooking, more soups and lots of baking : )

Monday - Spaghetti, Salad, Garlic Bread
Tuesday - Steaks, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, Salad
Wednesday - Chicken...Baked if cool enough
Thursday - Tacos, Beans & Rice
Friday - Pizza or out with family

Wash

What I plan on doing for myself this week...
Oh new question, and what a good one. I hope to have a soak in the tub with lots of bubbles, watch a movie and enjoy a glass of wine. 


From the Camera...
This is My Momma she would of been 74 last Monday. She's been gone 5 years now and I still want to pick up the phone and call her.
We celebrated by making one of her dishes, We made her a cake and sang her Happy Birthday. I planned on writing a whole post but it's still pretty hard.

Genesis 2;3
Then the man said,
"This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of man.

The weather.....
in the 9o's but feels more like triple digits.

Right now I am....
 In my kitchen relaxing with an ice cold glass of water.

Thinking.... 
That I had a very unproductive day, I felt under the weather all day and nothing has seemed to help, I missed my Bible study (new time) have just had an off day.

On my reading pile....
 finishing up The Covenant by Beverly Lewis
and starting Knit Together by Debbie Macomber

On my TV.....
My all American
The in laws
Malcolm in the middle

On the menu for this week....

Monday - Chicken Pasta Salad
Tuesday -  Taco Tuesday
Wednesday - C/P meal
Thursday - Fish, baked potato, salad
Friday -  Pizza
Saturday - Spaghetti
Sunday - ???


On my to do list today and this week....
I've got to get rid of my old washer, rearrange garage to make room for  delivery of new machine, which I know will lead to cleaning out again, and condensing  which will probably lead to a garage sale and a trip to goodwill. I have a feeling it's going to be a "If you give a mouse a cookie"  type of week for me lol
Usual chores
Dust/Windex
Sweep/Mop
cooking/dishes
restrooms


In the craft basket....
What Craft Basket? lol


I did pick up some new supplies...I have a slight pen addiction : ) I am loving these new Paper Mate ink joy gel pens they write so smooth...they are like butter! and cant wait to try the flairs.



   
Looking forward to this week....

 My New washing Machine!

Looking around the house....
not bad


From the camera....
                                           My Daughter with friends at her Senior Sunrise...


Fireworks after the baseball game...


We walked around downtown after the game, our daughter was also here celebrating her good friends 17th birthday, They had dinner, watched a movie during the film festival, walked around the plaza taking photos and had a sleep over. not an easy task for this overprotective momma.
did I mention the movie was the rocky horror picture show. yup, breathe momma breathe!


I love the new plaza and how it brought so many people out at night...


one last look from the parking garage...



On my prayer list.....
 Usual Family Prayers and for my daughter who just informed me of her yearly Engineering project..to invent (and build) something that's not invented yet. we have ideas but to build it would be expensive. What the heck - every time we turn around students or the school needs money. and she's a senior this year so yeah we are already budgeting for things like photos, proms, and her 18th birthday. I hate money lol


Bible Verse, Devotional....

Oh Lord, you have searched me and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Psalm 139:1-3
