This week I am linking up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom! It's always so fun to see what other Mamas are doin' on their Mondays! Here's a glimpse of my Monday! 

The Weather:::
tis a bit chilly this morning, and I love it! 64 Fahrenheit and it's not supposed to get above 81 so I'm a happy girl. sunny skies all day!!  

On my reading pile:::
I really wish I could think of something to replace this section with because, come on, I don't read.... sad, I know :( 

On my tv:::
the eldest doesn't have school today due to report card day so I probably won't be watching much of anything.

Monday - sketti and rolls
Tuesday - chicken bacon sandwiches onion rings and white peas
Wednesday - meatloaf, mashed taters, and broccoli
Thursday - leftovers
Friday - patty melts, homemade fries, broccoli
Saturday - lemon chicken, rice, and green beans
Sunday - crock pot chicken spaghetti and salad

On my to do list:::
pay bills

pick up kitchen
make beds
phone calls 
report card meeting

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
still workin on that ole' blanket. I don't think I've touched it in two weeks

Homemaking Tips:::
this isn't really a homemaking tip, but if you aren't sleeping (like me) then try melatonin as a sleep aid. I just haven't been able to get to the store yet.

On my Camera:::
I call this masterpiece "pure shock" lol
she has my heart :)

Looking around the house:::
Jake Saves Bucky is on the big girl!
dishwasher is goin'. 
kitchen desperately needs to be tidied.
On my prayer list:::
Awaken Montgomery starts Oct. 5 and I can't wait! 

Bible verse, Devotional:::
I'm stealing this from a previous post because I love it so much!

 Genesis 22:15-18  Then the angel of the Lord called again to Abraham from heaven.  “This is what the Lord says: Because you have obeyed me and have not withheld even your son, your only son, I swear by my own name thatI will certainly bless you. I will multiply your descendants[a] beyond number, like the stars in the sky and the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will conquer the cities of their enemies. And through your descendants all the nations of the earth will be blessed—all because you have obeyed me.”


  1. Kevin had lunch with us yesterday and told us a little about Awaken! That is so exciting!!!

  2. Yummy sounding menu :) Sorry you don't have anything to add to the reading category, maybe just leave it out :)

    Hope you have a great week.

  3. I have a question for you - what are white peas? I'm curious :)

    Have a blessed week,


  4. @Sherry Bibliomane They are just a small greenish pea (ironically not white). you can't find them in a regular grocery store, but you might be able to find them at a farmers market. I get them from my Nana who gets them from my uncle. she shells them and par cooks them then freezes them. When we have them for dinner I just boil them for about an hour, add salt and some butter to taste and they are delicious. They kinda have the flavor of a butter or lima bean, but they are WAAAY better :) hope that helps!

  5. @Megan Wynn Volnoff
    I'm really excited about it too! I ran into him Sunday and told him that we needed to get together with yall and yesterday I put the bug in Jordyn's ear so maybe it'll happen soon!!

  6. @Sandra Thanks, Sandra! I'm trying really hard to stick to the whole "meal planning/money saving" phenomena that has exploded on Pinterest. I'm planning on doing a post about it soon because it's been working for me for about a month now! I always love reading your Happy Homemaker Posts! especially the fact that you make SOOO many crocheted items :)


Your comments are such a blessing to me and I appreciate every one! If you are a no-reply commenter please leave me your email so I can respond to you! Thanks, y'all!
