Happy Homemaker Monday

I am linking up with Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. Head on over to find some other great bloggers.


For Today... April 24th, 2017

The weather...Its 42° and still dark out. Its going to be a sunny day with a high of 72°!

Right now I am... working on this blog post while waiting to change out the first load of laundry

On my reading pile... Still the same from previous weeks - I need to up my reading time: Reshaping it All by Candace Cameron Bure (rereading this); Etched...Upon My Heart by Jill Kelly; Sisterland by Curtis Sittenfeld; and Happily Ever After by Trista Sutter

Movies or Shows I watched this weekend... I watched a Lifetime movie, I think it was called The Perfect Stalker??

On my TV... I have The Sons on DVR to watch

Something fun to share...This past week I found out that I am going to be a Great Aunt, not only once but twice. First my nephew/niece on my husband's side announced that they were expecting and due in Sept. They just yesterday my brother called me and asked me if I could crochet him a hedgehog baby hat. I said I probably could, it didn't sink in right away, he says do you know why I am asking you this. I figured they wanted it for a friend, until the light bulb went off and I said... no way you are going to be a grandpa?? My niece is expecting and due in Dec. Guess another trip to Floirda is in my future this Winter!!

My nephew/niece is how they announced it to us on Easter

From the camera... my planner spread for this week

The boys were over yesterday, for dinner to celebrate Trent's birthday. My oldest did the grilling, to give me the day off from cooking. We had steak, red skin potatoes, green bean casserole, salad and rolls. It was a yummy dinner!

What I'm wearing today... still in my pjs, but will be changing into some yoga pants and a purple top in a little while

One of my simple pleasures... getting the day off from cooking while having one of my boys do it for me

On my prayer list... a friend and her housing situation, and for job peace for my husband

A favorite Bible verse, devotion or quote for today...
