Happy Homemaker Monday 11.7.2016

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

linking up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay At Home Mom at

The weather outside is...
 getting cooler : ) Hubby came home after work last night and converted our A/C back to heat.
I could of waited another week because I usually get hot during the day but I left it up to him.
more so because I don't want to be the reason we are cold in the mornings lol

On the breakfast plate...
I have been doing better about eating breakfast. Today I had Coffee, Toast and a Banana but on other days I am craving a breakfast like this...
and I must confess on this day I had already had a small breakfast and this was my 2nd breakfast :::blush:::  yup I'm buying a hobbit house next door to  Pippin & Merry (LOTR)

As I look outside my window...
It is very quiet and still

Right now I am...

Taking a break waiting for Bible Study to start
(see I am way to early) 

As I look around the house...
I am happy it's clean but still debating going full on Christmas décor mode or putting up very simple Thanksgiving.

On today's to do list...
Cleaning out sons room so we can start pulling up rug and get on with the install of flooring. my back is sore just thinking about it.

Happening this week...
Starting floors, going though garage & closets- Candle Lighters called and said they would be in area next weekend and lets be honest we can all find something to de clutter.

Currently Reading...
Bible...have a small stack of books waiting to be read. and going to bookstore today to buy another Christmas book that I will hold off starting.

On the TV today...
Not much I couldn't turn away from election coverage but finally turned it off an hour ago. I do have a few recommendations I want to watch on Netflix but I haven't been able to stay up the last few nights.

 On the menu this week...
Monday - Steaks, Potato's and Green salad
Tuesday - Spaghetti
Wednesday - 8 can soup
Thursday - Pizza party with family for my Sons 14th Birthday
Friday - Crock Pot meal? smothered pork chops or pulled pork
Saturday - Caldo de Res
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...
Homemade Bread if I can remember to pick up the yeast!

Favorite photo from the camera...
Good bye Halloween...

Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals...


  1. Hello, my friend! I love your photo!!!! And is had when they get older isn't it? I am with you about the decorations, but just decided to go with Christmas decorating! I like to have it done so we can relax and enjoy. : ) Oh...I am watching a great show on Netflix! It's called The Crown!!! Check it out. Have a cozy evening!

    1. Thank you Billie Jo. I will check out that show -cant wait.

  2. I love your planner! I just got my new one for 2017 and am overly excited :) Thanks for stopping by!


    1. Hi Colletta. YOU DID?!? Which planner did you pick? I have seen SO many nice ones out now that it's hard to choose . I am leaning towards the new recollections that resembles the Erin Condren.

  3. I feel your pain about the trick or treating. My youngest is only 11 (well, 12 in 3 days) and he refused to go! So sad although I did enjoy being at home and finally being able to answer my own door for a change (in the past, we've always just left the candy on the porch). I was just thinking about how tempted I was to go ahead and decorate for Christmas today but my husband has a "not until after Thanksgiving" rule. Hey, there's absolutely nothing wrong with 2nd (or 3rd) breakfasts! Those hobbits have the right idea. Hope you're having a fantastic weekend!

    1. ha ha jean Would you believe I am still struggling with putting up our tree...I've gone in garage twice and looked at Christmas Bins lol have a great week!
