Happy Homemaker Monday 1.9.2017

Happy Homemaker Monday 1.9.2017
(On a Tuesday)

Good Morning and Happy New Year!
I am happy to be back after taking December off for family time. I hope you all had wonderful Holidays.
Liking up with Sandra at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom for HHM http://familycorner.blogspot.com/

The Weather... I would love some snow but mostly we've been in the high 60s

On My Reading Pile... My Bible. hope to start a couple new books my  Daughter surprised  me with at Christmas: Boss Girl and Uninvited.

On my TV... after putting away all the Christmas movies we have been back to Netflix...
The Office -Wow there are a lot of episodes
The Crown- just finished re watching with my hubby - who now sometimes walks around talking like Winston Churchill - I'd say he liked the series lol
 Gilmore Girls A year in the life- took us longer than expected but Just finished watching with my daughter, I think it seemed more musical and that turned me off a bit but I still enjoyed it. I Love that me & my Girl both clapped when Jess came out.
Land Girls- aka My Lunch date ha ha I just finished and Loved it!
 I just started...
 Jane The Virgin - I wanted to see what all the hype was about...not sure if I will continue
Narcos - almost got though first episode, I thought it might be to violent for me but so far interesting.
I watched a few episode of  Women in prison  out of boredom, but it just made me sad.
Me & Hubby are starting Bridget Jones Diary I can't tell you how many times I've watched these...I never tire of them. I'm so glad Netflix re added.
this is a lot of TV for me but I somehow still miss my ME TV westerns but hope to be back in the swing of things soon.

On the Menu for this week...
Monday- Pizza a surprise from my SIL : )
Tuesday- Chicken Tacos
Wednesday- Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Thursday- Dinner with Family-Celebrating my Late FIL
Friday- Fish

On My To Do List... I am happy to say although as moms our to do list never ends I am pretty much caught up. I have been watching/joining Kimberly/StyleMomXO on You tube. and getting it done during my morning Power Hour!  I have found I am able to "let things go" and not feel guilty if I am not constantly cleaning something. I can fit/do about 7 items in an hour. and once I cross them off, It feels great to let myself breathe for the rest of the day. of course I still do my  morning/night routines and daily tasks like laundry, but this is the only way I have been able to SEE I have got things done and feel ok taking the rest of the day slow.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating...
just playing in my planner.

Looking around the house... I can smile and know I've done what I can for the day. but if I let myself I can also start thinking of all the projects I want to accomplish this Year.

From The Camera... wishful thinking...

Something fun to share...
I Love this! Hubby does voice over of wife's cleaning routine
Love Meg on You Tube...

What I'm wearing today... Jeans, Grey Top and Black Sweater.

One of my simple pleasures... Baking! I Love baking for my family especially on cold days and with my children. The other day Me and Isabella made Chocolate chip banana muffins YUM!

Bible verse, Devotional...
"This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you." 
                       -John 15:12


  1. Hello!
    So happy to see you back here!
    I share your love of baking!!
    Wish we could share a cup of coffee and a muffin. : )
    Happy New Year!

  2. Glad you are back! I would much rather have snow than ice but I am loving the 60 degree days we've been getting this week (though a 60 degree January day is certainly nothing like a 60 degree April day...). Feels nice after a few 1 degree mornings. Your snowman display is really cute. Hope your New Year and your week are going well.

    1. Thank you Jean, I put them up after I put Christmas away and try to keep them up till the 14th-thats when I put up Valentines day. and then it hits me Christmas is over : (

  3. Stopping by from Happy Homemaker Monday! So nice to meet another planner. Do you use a particular one? I have an Erin Condren that I keep on my desk and I got one of the Recollections Personal Planners for Christmas to carry in my purse. Have a great rest of your week!

    1. Hi Pamela, Happy to meet you! I have planned since I can remember but purchased my first happy planner in 2016, I really wanted an Erin Condren but wasn't sure if id use it and the price scared me a bit. I really enjoyed my HP but moved into my small Recollections for this year. I have not found "planner Peace" yet and am now decided to save for a TN. Thanks so much for stopping by, I cant wait to get to know you better ; )

  4. What a sweet blog you have...I am going to follow along...thanks for your visit and following me.
    those muffins look amazing...and I, too, love baking when it's cold and rainy and cloudy...love those kind of days..come see me often

    1. Thank you bj, Of course I will visit often, I think Your blog is so sweet also.

  5. uh ooo...your Follow Me isn't working....

    1. Thank You I'll have to look into that.
