Happy Homemaker Monday

Feel free to use :)

The Weather:::
Its been kind of cloudy and if I pretend real hard, its almost like fall.

Right now I am: 
Having my leftovers for breakfast again. The stuffing is even better today than it was last Thursday.

About what kind of homemade gifts I can make this year. I want to do something creative from my kitchen.

On my reading pile:::
Still on Fifty Shades Darker. I'm getting about a page a day read. Woo hoo!!

On my tv:::
Whatever happens to be on when I plop down. Or maybe I'll go for a walk instead.

On the menu for this week:::
Monday- Chinese Chicken Salad
Tuesday- Meatloaf and Creamed Spinach
Wednesday- Jambalaya
Thursday- Cochinita Pibil
Friday- Turkey and Stars Soup
Saturday- Leftovers
Sunday- Honey Walnut Shrimp

On my to do list:::
Pay bills

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
I got a back for the little baby quilt, and the makings for a new skirt. Everything's waiting for me as soon as I get a chance to work on it.

Homemaking Tips:::
I try to do a load of laundry every day. One medium sized load is easy. Ten gigantic loads on a Saturday is almost impossible.

Looking around the house:::
My husband asked me where we got the baby clothes that are piled up by the front door. I didn't remember getting anything new or any hand-me-downs. Then I figured out where Bobby got the big empty box he was playing with all weekend. Hey, if the box you want to play with is full of neatly folded baby clothes that have been painstakingly sorted to give to a friend, just dump them out on the floor. Mom won't notice.

From the camera:::
I think I need to permanently attach my camera to my arm. Nobody cares what the inside of a closet looks like.


  1. reading about all those clothes on the floor reminds me that I've got a dresser to clean out, thanks! lol

    Hope you have a good week :)

  2. I have the book Fifty Shades of Grey that was given to me, but I haven't read it yet. It is on my TBR pile, and I am looking for a new book to start on so I think I'll start there.
    I forget half the time to have something from the camera so I agree. I need a camera with a neck strap or something. haha.
    Enjoyed your Happy Homemaker Monday!

    Hope you have a great day :)
