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...

Thursday -Thanksgiving and all that it entails!!!! Yippee!

  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

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.
