Happy Homemaker Monday 11.14.2016

Happy Homemaker Monday 11.14.2016
Linking up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom

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"

Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals...

 "My Son Attend to my words"
Proverbs 4:20


  1. The Crown is phenomenal and just like you, I binge watched it in 2 days LOL I'm hoping for a second season as well.

    Hope your floors get all finished soon. I'm also prepping for Thanksgiving and have so much to do, but not enough energy or motivation to do it. haha

    1. I'm glad to know I was not the only one who couldn't help myself watching the crown lol. Thank You so much for stopping by.

  2. Being a HUGE Gilmore Girls fan I'm LMBO at the Lane's house reference. I always loved when they played the Korean version of Marco Polo looking for each other.

    Sounds like you and I are on the same schedule. I'm in the midst of doing the kitchen cabinets too which I would have anyway, but the dry wall guy forced a speed up in my time table.

    Happy Birthday to your baby boy!

    Have a great week!

    1. Hi Tamy...Welcome to the Antique House lol That dang dry guy caused such a mess. hope you are enjoying your week and get some rest in

  3. Perhaps it's a November birthday thing? I just went through the same thing with my youngest who is 12 today! I will have to check out The Crown as I need a new Netflix show. Hope you have a great week!

    1. Well happy Birthday to your little guy Jean. Oh Yes you should check out the crown! let me know if you do and if you binge watch it like I did.

  4. Cute post♥ Have a great week ♥

  5. Hello my dear friend!
    The egg sandwich sounds so good!
    Please tell me about it! I've never had one.
    And The Crown!!!!! Isn't it the best?
    And I am exactly like you... Can't wait to start reading about the history of the Royal Family.
    Have a wonderful Wednesday!

    1. Good Morning Billie Jo, Lady I am sitting here cracking up then I stopped and thought did I make my breakfast sound fancy??? It was just a simple egg sandwich, scrambled eggs on toast with mayo. :::blush:::now I haven't had a real eggs sandwich in a long time. Thank you so much for recommending The Crown. I LOVE it!!! have you watched Longmire? Hope your having a great week.

    2. Ok. That sounds so good!
      I'm off to make one now!!!!!

  6. I hear you with the whole "real house" stuff! NOt to mention we all get so busy with kiddo activities and other real life - sometimes house is last on the list!

    I have to check out that The Crown show - several people I know have been talking about it!

    Happy bday to your son. Sounds like such a sweet guy. ;) And that photo of him working with his Dad is precious.

    Blessings on the rest of your week my dear Rowe!! xoxo

  7. What a lovely blog to learn more about you, Row. I don't think we ever feel like our homes are spotless! Your new floors in your son's room look great. I'm sure they will be easy to take care of. Thanks for reminding me about Old Mesilla, you are lucky to live close by for easy visits. Have a great afternoon. ♥
