Happy Homemaker Monday 11.6.2017

Happy Homemaker Monday 11.6.2017

Good Morning. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We had a busy but fun one. Hubby was off on Friday so we had a morning coffee date at Mc Donald's : ) I guess were getting old but I Love people watching. I always see older people meeting up for breakfast or older lovebirds sitting close together chatting. Then we picked up my MIL, did some shopping and had lunch together. Saturday we had a cousins Birthday party-Michael went alone I had what I guess was my first ever sinus infection-Painful. and Sunday we had a parent meeting at our church while Adam was in his religious Formation class, then we celebrated mass and then headed over to Michaels Aunts birthday party (My MIL's sister) My hubby has a big family and its always so nice to see everyone. This was the first family party without Bella and every time someone asked about her college life I felt a tug on my heart. I'm sure it gets easier.
On to HHM
Linking up with Sandra from Diary Of a Stay At Home Mom

Breakfast Time...What is on the plate this morning...
Scrambled Eggs, Toast and coffee of course : )

Right now I am...Trying to get this post up before I tackle my day.

The weather outside... It's a chilly 63 degrees our high today will be 81 - I am waiting for the cooler days I am ready for some soup weather.

Looking around the house... I managed to get all the Halloween décor put away but I am not quite ready for Christmas, I need to get the rest of my Thanksgiving items out. This year I wont be putting
(trying hard not to) up Christmas till after Thanksgiving because my Doll comes home for Thanksgiving break! Yay! plus Adams birthday is on the 10th and Isabella's is on the 26th. I don't like them to feel like its Dec. just yet.

On todays to do list...
Laundry-all bedding

 If the Lord gives you ripe bananas you make banana bread! : )

Currently reading...

F- Adams 15th Birthday so pizza of course : )

Looking Forward to this week...
Adams 15th Birthday. He just wants to have a small family get together here at our home- my favorite kind. He will go out for pizza and a movie with friends another time, He says nothing good out right now lol My son Loves to go to the movies on the first day it is out, He collects (small promo) movie posters and that is the only day they give them out.

Favorite Photo from the camera... My Mother in Love with Minnie Mouse. Aren't they cute.
Celebrating our God Son's second birthday with Mickey and Minnie. BTW I got out voted on wearing matching painted tees like last year...boy do I miss bella lol 
We were lucky enough to have been invited along for trick or treating on Halloween. I miss this so much with my children but now I get to do it all over again with our Godson.

Devotional, Scripture...
Prayers for all the victims of these crazy times. I never thought I'd see a day a person would shoot up a church or drive into crowds of innocent people for no reason absolute evil and chaos.

"God is our refuge and strength, a help always near in times of great trouble"
Psalms 46:1

Thanks for reading, I hope you all have a blessed week.


  1. Sorry but your "chilly 61 degrees" gave me a bit of a chuckle. That was our high temperature yesterday! Hope your son has a happy birthday and enjoys the small family gathering.

    1. lol glad I could make you laugh : ) Thank you so much for the birthday wishes.

  2. Hi, Row! Enjoyed reading your post and love the autumn leaves on your blog! Beautiful! Your menus look great! Have a great week ahead! Blessings! <3

    1. Thank you Rebecca, I hope you have a great week also.

    2. P.S. Thanks for following-I will be following you right back : )

  3. Hi, Row, thanks so much for the invite into your day over a cuppa joe!! What a delightful visit... and I understand completely those first months of empty nesting when our one and only left for university... Then she left form 8 years there to go live and build her family in Boston... I never really get over the rift!!! But life is great and we take it in small doses as it comes! God bless!!

    1. As I'm reading your comment I can feel the tears welling up in my eyes and I have to fight it or I would be crying all day. It is getting easier but 'm sure I also will never get over it. I try to think on the future and would move wherever my children live but one loves cold weather the other hot so I take it day by day and try not to think on it. Now I understand what my parents felt when I moved from California to Texas. Thanks so much for stopping by and your kind words.

  4. Dear Row,
    What a joy it must be to be linked with a big family!

    God bless!

  7. I'm running late this week with getting back from up north and getting sick right away. The time change is also messing with me BIG time too.Your pictures are so cute!
