Happy Homemaker Monday #9

Hey y'all! Hope everyone had a great weekend! I know we did! 

Joining up with Sandra today for another edition of Happy Homemaker! 

The Weather:::
it was yucky this morning. The sun has finally come out, but weatherman says it could be stormy on and off all day :(`

Right now I am: 
Sittin' on the couch cuddling with baby and watching Dina's Party 


How I need to get back into my routine of cleaning

Something Fun to Share:::
I'm not one for the state fair. There's too many unsavory people and there are too many {food} temptations.
But the MIL called last minute and invited us to the Alabama National Fair {I get a kick out of that every time} so we went and had a fabulous time. Maybe next year I'll remember how HOT it was. I've never seen my big girl so happy :)

On my tv:::
Looking forward to Revolution tonight and SaconneJoly's on YouTube

On the menu for this week:::
Monday - sketti, salad, and garlic bread

Tuesday - garlic lemon chicken 
Wednesday - pizza
Thursday - BBQ pork chops, yellow rice, green beans
Friday - eat out
Saturday - taco soup
Sunday - steak, taters, and salad

On my to do list:::

make bills
balance checkbook
Replace air filter
Clean Oven

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
finally finished all the octagons and squares in light blue now its on to the cream color :)

Homemaking Tips:::
Being a list maker has definitely helped me keep my sanity! I forget so many things, ALL the time. (I had a better one, but since I didn't write it down, I forgot... see my point now?)

Looking around the house:::
Kitchen lights are illuminating a messy kitchen

Toy corner needs to be tidied
light is streaming into the {faux} french doors
I really need to decorate my mantel for Halloween

From the camera:::

The girls and their Mimi at the fair! 

On my prayer list:::
s a girl in my sister's nursing class who's husband was recently discharged from the military after being diagnosed with cancer. When my mommy told me my heart broke for them and I haven't been able to stop thinking about them. Hopefully I can add a few things to the grocery budget this week to get some freezer meals put together for them

Bible verse, Devotional:::

Matthew 6:27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? NLT

Worrying changes nothing. It's like a rocking chair... It gives you something to do, but it doesn't get you anywhere. Turn your worry into prayer and action


  1. Don't clean today. Sit on the couch and hold your baby. :) I miss my babies. They are all grown (or almost grown). Wish I was eating at your house this week. My husband is on a diet and I'm sick of fish.

  2. I make lists as well...but I somehow forget where I put them. haha!

    I love your scripture.

  3. your creation sounds like it will have some beautiful colors what are you making?
