Happy Homemaker Monday 1.23.2017

Happy Homemaker Monday 1.23.2017

Good Morning, I hope you had a great weekend. We did not do much. My daughter had a lot of studying to do and my hubby has been under the weather.  So we mostly stayed close to home relaxing, watching movies and of course football. I think at least for myself I needed to just take it easy - It has been a tough start this month. We celebrated both my FIL and Mommas anniversaries and just attended two funerals in one week. My hubby's aunt and a Dear Friend of mine.

Diary of a stay at home mom






The Weather... right now its a sunny 45 degrees, very nice day.
This weekend was very windy along with lots and lots of rain.
On my reading pile... My Bible 
On my T.V....
 I am still re-watched a couple of shows and movies with hubby after kids are in bed.
  • Longmire
  • An Unfinished life
  • Jane Got A Gun
The last two I stumbled upon and so glad I did, they are really good. Check them out if your looking for a good Netflix movie. Do you notice a cowboy/western theme? unintentional but I do love a good western, probably because I grew up watching them with my Dad. My hubby I would say is not into westerns but he liked both of these movies and is still into Longmire- 3 in a row! I feel like I should win a prize. Now if I can just get him to watch Gunsmoke, Bonanza, and The Rifleman I'd be a happy camper.

On the menu this week...
 M - Breaded baked chicken with potatoes and green beans
T - Taco Salads
W- Chicken Enchiladas with Mexican Rice & Refried Beans
T - Picadillo with Sopa
F - Chinese or Pizza (depending if we stay in or go out)
On my to do list...
Take care of and baby hubby who is home sick, so besides Laundry not sure how much I will get done, but on list is...
 Laundry: All bedding, blankets, whites and towels.
Sweep & Mop Floors
Bathrooms: swish & swipe/Sinks and counters
I had planned on cleaning out linen closet and rearranging some holiday tubs in garage but I think I'll hold off till tomorrow.
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating...
Not much at all, I have been trying to get going so to speak on my "me time" but have been in a funk...
Planner: I am struggling with planner peace, wanting to try switching to a TN since I love the Planner Perfect method, but 1. I LOVE lists and use everyday. 2. I can not bring myself to spend so much cash on a TN (until I know Ill use it) and 3. I already have started using my recollections and do not want to waste inserts.
Bible Study: - I still do on my own every morning and WWL but I am missing my ladies...I'm part of a group of wonderful ladies (Plan Live Love Ministries) I usually watch Live on Periscope but have had to watch re-plays two days I've not been home and the other days Periscope would not work for me -wouldn't load correctly.
Crochet: Have picked up twice. : (
 Looking around the house... clean but missing our Christmas tree
I am late in putting up decorations for valentines day. I was going to try to do today but maybe tomorrow.
 From the camera...
 Nada...I know I'm in a funk if I haven't even picked up my camera or taken any photos.

Something fun to share...
 Although this past week was pretty sad I did find many blessings in that we got to see family that we have not seen in a long time - also I use to work at an Elementary School- that's where I met my dear friend Cindy. She was sooooo Loved I knew it would be a packed house but I didn't think that seeing so many of my past co workers, teachers and friends would bring me such joy along side my sadness.
What I'm wearing today...
 Woke up, got in shower and changed right into Clean, fresh.....pajamas. Yup I knew it was going to be one of those days because I'm home with a sick hubby.
One of my simple pleasures...
 Being in PJ's
Bible verse, Devotional...
