Happy Homemaker Monday 2.13.17
posted on a Tuesday

Good Morning, and Happy Valentines Day!  for some reason my PC is freezing on the HHM site so I turned it off and got caught up with housework. So here I am this morning trying to catch up on all the participants, I love reading your Blogs : )

It's Always Something by Gilda Radner
and I still haven't made a dent in my long books to read list, I guess when you love to read the list never ends does it?

I gasped when I saw the complete set in my Library,I've Always Loved and am Loving re-watching from the beginning, I don't care how many times I've seen these episodes they still touch me and I still cry at both sad and heartwarming.  I still think our world needs more Ingalls and less Mrs. Olson's  lol

What I am Sewing, Crocheting, Knitting, or Creating...
notice the huge needles, I got them for Bella she fell in love with the YouTube channel: WOOLANDTHEGANG she wants to make a chunky blanket. So I made her a deal, learn it and I'll get you the $20 needles and yarn. but for now lets stay at the Walmart $5 & under budget lol

Looking forward to... Valentines dinner with my family.

Looking Around The House...
:::makes the I Love Lucy Face and sound::: EEEWWW

From the camera...
Our weekend trip to the Record Store...
 I Love the80s and I Love Vinyl!
I was so Happy and so surprised when I  found an album I have been searching for that was not released in the USA (King) and My hubby got me one of my faves...David Bowie <3
Echo & The Bunnymen...maybe the next trip ; )
What I'm wearing today...
haven't decided but something Red.

One of my simple pleasures...
Listening to Records and thinking about me and my Daddy going to Licorice Pizza record store in California then coming home and listening and singing to together - My Daddy has a recording of me singing Patsy Clines Crazy and if anyone ever heard it - I would die of embarrassment  like totally fer sure dude! ok maybe not die but my Cheeks would be VERY Red lol but seriously isn't she Great and Crazy is such a great song!

Bible Devotional or Verse...
Seek and Ye shall Find
Matthew 7:7



  1. Hello! This is my first visit to your charming blog. I love how warm and friendly it is and I have just become your 14th follower . . . maybe that's a good sign . . . since it is the 14th of February and Valentine's Day :) I do hope that you will return the visit. Here's wishing you a lovely day filled with love and happiness.
    Connie :)

    1. Awe Connie what a very sweet comment, Thank you! Of course I'll come for a visit and I'll do one better I'll follow ya right back 😉Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. Great post! Vinyl certainly has made a comeback, hasn't it? My Mum made a chunky blanket with needles similar to those; I can still remember the clacking noise they made while she was knitting. Have a great rest of the week and Happy Valentine's Day!

    1. Hi Pamela, What a great memory of your momma.
      Hope you enjoy the rest of your week.

  3. Hello dear friend!
    Happy Valentine's Day to you!!!!!
    I love love love Little House!
    My favorites are the ones when both Laura and Nellie are wanting to catch the eye of Almanzo!!!!!
    And one other...it makes me sad...but now I get it.
    It was when Laura was pregnant with her baby, and Ma went to Doc Baker's too, thinking she was also pregnant. She was so happy! But then Doc told her she wasn't. It was the beginning of the Change. She was sooo sad. But Charles took her away to help.
    Anyway, Have a lovely evening!!!!!

    1. Hi Billie Jo, I'm laughing thinking about that episode with Almanzo I cant wait till I get to it. I'm still on season one but I remember that one well. I just watched the one where the Olson's fight and almost break up sad but in the case of the Olson's so funny.

  4. Seriously laughing....I love that face of Lucy and I have made it a few times this week and it is only Tuesday. We are also Little House on the Prairie Binging. We are on season 7. My family loves it.

    1. Got to Lucy right!? lol Thank you so much for stopping by

  5. Happy Valentin's Day!Cute little house:)

  6. Send us some of your rainy weather, we need it around here. Hope you'll share pictures of the blanket. Happy Wednesday!

    1. Hey Jean, I sure will try : ) Hope your having a great week.

  7. Hi Row, yes; the world needs less ornery Mrs. Olson's! I'm happy to say that I am not one of them. lol! It has been ages since I've watched, but now I want to binge watch it as well. I am doing some redwork stitching. Good time for binging! Loved reading this. Sorry that I can't follow. For about 6 months now when ever I try google won't let me. Says OOPs, something went wrong. Crazy!! I don't know how to fix it.

    1. Hi Jann No worries, I sure wish I could help but I am still getting the hang of blogging, I am amazed each time I change my background. I was so glad to see you stopped by, I thought for sure you would think I was nuts hee hee yYour project does sound perfect for binge watching LHOTP I hope your Library has the set and that your able to enjoy watching soon. I really like seeing your projects on your lovely blog. Again thanks so much for popping in, I appreciate it. Have a great rest of the week.

  8. Hi Row! So nice to have you back and that you must be feeling better! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's. ;)

    I LOVE Little House and read all of the books when I was young and have seen every episode - and with reruns even multiple times! I always loved the Christmas episodes. And I think my favorite of all time was when Laura became a teacher and Almanzo would drive her on the weekends (I think it was a 2-parter). Loved that one. ;)

    Your menu sounds SO yummy!! Love catching up with you dear Friend and our time on insta too. Lol!

    Blessings on the weekend ahead. xoxo

    1. Hi Carrie! Yes Thank God I am feeling better, it had me down for about a week. I still read the little house books, especially during winter, probably because they make me feel so cozy. Hope you enjoy the rest of your week... See ya on IG : )

  9. Your menu sounds delicious! I love Olive Garden! The all you can eat salad is my favorite! :) I also love Little House and have watched all the episodes. I am not sure which one is my favorite..? I haven't watched it in a while though. We only have Netflix and it isn't on there. If it were, I am sure we would be watching it from time to time! :)

    I hope you won't take offense...but may I recommend something? Please be cautious of the Jesus Calling book. The author claims she writes as God leads her...but nowadays we have God's Word and that is sufficient. To declare something you write is absolutely from the Lord is something that should be looked at and discerned very carefully. I hope you don't take this as me speaking unkindly. I would be happy to share links or discuss it with you if you want! Here's my email: thecountryblossom at hotmail dot com
    I only say that out of love and concern. For example, if I see anyone reading books by Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen and the like, I raise the red flags as well. Truly out of love! :o)

    Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog and for following me on IG! So, so thoughtful of you! I Hope you have a lovely Friday!


    1. Hi Katy, no offense taken : ) I follow your blog and IG because I love reading your posts and seeing your cozy photos. I also really like your planner pages and drawings. Have a great weekend.
