Happy Homemaker Monday

The Weather:::
Its clear now but its been a little rainy and cold.

Right Now I Am:::
Getting ready to blast this shoe shine business into superstardom! (I'm practicing thinking positively.)

A lot of my Happy Homemaker Monday answers are "not enough time," and "not this week." If I don't have time for any of these things, what is it I do all day?

On My Reading Pile:::
Nothing this week.

On My TV:::
American Idol.

Favorite Blog Post This Week:::
I have limited internet access lately so I haven't done much blog reading.

Something Fun To Share:::
My family isn't big on shopping as a leisure activity so we don't get to the mall very often. Yesterday we went without needing to (meaning we didn't have to go to ten different stores to find something in our size and at the right price). We just walked around and looked at stuff (and people). Our only purchase was a cinnamon roll for all of us to share. I suspect other families might do this kind of thing regularly but if you're a hermit like me, its a nice change of pace.

On The Menu For This Week:::
Monday- Burgundy Beef
Tuesday- Mexicanish Casserole
Wednesday- Clam Chowder
Thursday- Five Can Hotdish
Friday- Baked Tilapia
Saturday- Cuban Pork Sandwiches
Sunday- Peanut Butter Soup

On My To Do List:::
Gather up paperwork for taxes

What I am Sewing, Crocheting, Knitting, or Creating:::
I finished tying my fleece blanket and I crocheted an edge on a towel. I would like to do a little more crocheting but have not been inspired yet.

Homemaking Tips:::
You don't want my tips this week! I will be reading everyone else's tips looking for help.

Looking Around The House:::
The house was too small for us when we moved in. Then we had another baby.    You can guess what my house looks like.

From The Camera:::
Nothing this week.


  1. I know what you mean. I love taking pictures with my camera and yet every week I find that I lack pictures to put for my Happy Homemaker Monday post. Or I am in a rush and don't have much time to hook the camera up and download the pics. LOL. Time sure does fly.
    Our apartment is becoming increasingly cramped as our sons get older so I know what you mean. Space we thought we were going to have is becoming very cramped.

  2. yep, can relate to the too-small house ... but we try to "make do" ... :) have a good week.

  3. I sometimes forget to even take pictures. Your menu looks yummy!

  4. Yummy menu :)

    We don't get to the mall often at all, so when we do go it's always a fun day for us, I totally relate to what you said :)
