The Weather...
Ugh... Still Hot should be in 90's this week so that's a bit of a relief

On my reading pile...
Bible, Devotionals & Online Studies: Women Living Well, Plan Live Love
Still reading The Covenant
started reading Pride & Prejudice on Kindle

 On my TV...
Hope to watch some Classics this week like Bonanza, The Rifle Man, Emergency as Well as Ellen, Dr. Phil and Maybe Judge Judy. This is what I say each Month and somehow I don't sit down and watch as often as I would like. If I could catch all of these shows in one month It would be something but I'm lucky if I can catch a couple. Nothing is stopping me but me. What usually happens is the day fly's by and I will only sit down if kids put a movie on during Lunch and after Dinner When we all sit down together to watch a movie or show. But I have to tell we started Stranger Things and ended up Binge watching it- Very Good! sort of like the movie Super 8
I am looking forward to Starting Tallulah this Friday

 On the menu for this week:::

Monday -  Grilled Steaks, Rice, side Salad
Tuesday -  Left Overs
Wednesday - C/P Chicken, Potatoes, Corn
Thursday - Enchiladas, Rice and Beans
Friday - Pizza and a movie
Saturday - Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans 

On my to do list...
It's the start of a new week and I automatically want to say Laundry-Monday Is Linens day But as I have no washing machine, I feel a bit off. so it's on to other chores.
Wash Dishes from Breakfast
Sweep and Mop all floors
Condense/Shred paperwork
Start Back to school shopping
 (waiting on school lists)

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating...
Playing in my planner. Me & My Daughter went to a Michaels Plan with me Class Where we made tassels for our Planners. We got to meet up with other planner gals from our area and even  a couple of ladies from one of my planner groups. We were to busy Talking and having fun I forgot to take photos.

Looking around the house...
Peaceful. after a bit of a rush it is now calm and quiet. I am so glad I stayed up a bit longer and cleaned last night, it is always so nice to wake up to a clean kitchen.

From the camera...

Didn't take much but I Love when I get cute little texts from my Doggie Nephew.

On my prayer list...
My Usual prayers for family. and for a couple of online friends who have lost their fathers.

Happy Homemaker Monday 7.11.2016

Hello My Friends,
Hope you all had a great weekend and forth of July! I wasn't able to Blog last HHM I planned to take lots of photos but as usual was too busy Living in the moment (and eating A Lot!) No regrets! We are usually in California during this time, but we did have a get together at our place. Which means no fireworks other than "poppers" My MIL was the last guest to leave, We watched a Rod Stewart concert with her and she loved it! My late FIL was a fan and his music always reminds us of him - one of there songs is "Have I told you lately that I love you"  AWE! I did manage to get one photo before we took G home. isn't she cute?
Now on to HHM!

The Weather...
Hot Hot  Hot! right now its 99 degrees!  High is 102  it is supposed to get up to 109 this week. I do not like this weather I cant wait for fall.

On my reading pile...
I enjoyed The Shunning so I am now reading Beverly Lewis' The Covenant. And of course a Little House book I never tire of these stories. I Love the illustrations.

On my TV...
Started to watch the series TURN had to stop because it shows PG13 well IT'S NOT! what has become of this world? is nothing precious anymore? and why is it the inappropriate parts seem to start fast without warning just BAM in your face. My daughter is not a baby she is 17 but she is a good girl and I would like to keep her that way for as long as possible. I know many teens even kids have become desensitized watching what has become "the norm" but not this mom - I do not like or go along with - for lack of better words "the whole Kardashian life style"  I know some parents think its ok for their children to watch and do whatever and that's fine...
 to each their own but as for me - Never will. true story:  a mom I know put on Magic Mike for her kids and one was seven! call me old fashioned but this is not ok with me.
p.s. before you get all upset please see above *to each their own. I learned my lesson by making the mistake of going along with a couple other moms on a topic sort of like this years ago. and Now I either keep quiet or make sure to add this is how I feel or I would not be able to do that with my kids. maybe it wont have an effect on them -maybe it will. but I'm not taking any chances. I am an over protective mom and proud of it!
OK how did what I'm watching turn (no pun intended) into this?
any who I also watched The Fundamentals of Caring- actually liked it.
and watched The Twilight Zone with family. We watched Talking Tina and the one where the sun was getting close to earth- which is what the weather here feels like to me...I'm melting!
I am waiting for Tallulah to start.

On the menu for this week...

Monday - Pork Chops
Tuesday -  Dinner at G's or Restaurant  for her 81rst Birthday!
Wednesday - C/P Chicken
Thursday - Pasta chicken salad
Friday - Pizza
Saturday - ??? BBQ if not too hot

On my to do list...
All the things lol
Our washer might need to be replaced so I am holding off on Laundry, which kills me because I try to keep on top of it. I do not like it when it piles up and I like routine.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating...
Just playing in my planners. I am posting some pics for Carrie over at

 Do any of you use Planners? I am a huge planner and list maker I like to have things written out and crossed off, it took me along time to get into this type of planner till I found it is fun & an amazing creative outlet for me as I am not an artist. Also because I couldn't see spending money on it as I am on a tight budget, but then I did some research and you would be amazed how many free and affordable options are out there. here are a couple examples...

try putting "planner" in the IG search box... you will be amazed : ) Happy Planning! let me know if you try it.

Looking around the house...
Not bad but there is always something that can be done. Honestly it is too hot and I am only doing what's necessary today lol

From the camera...
We had a great Week and weekend. We had our God Son for a day, He is such a good baby not one fuss from him! We Got to take him to his Gymboree class-so cute! took him around town - one stop was Barnes and Noble where I read to him, reminded me of when we use to take my babies now we don't really head to the kid section its just the teen section and the cafĂ©.

On my prayer list...
 All officers everywhere, unspoken & usual family prayers.

Something that inspires or brings a smile to your face...
waiting on cooler weather my son a few years back playing in the snow.
