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... Feb 5th, 2018

The weather...Its a brisk 13° and snowy.

As I look outside my window...Last week after the snow we got, we had a few warm days and it all metled... until yesterday...we got more snow.. I am so done!

On the breakfast plate. . .a Herbalife shake - banana carmel flavor mixed with orange juice and a bottle of water

Thinking and pondering...while watching the superbowl, we saw a commercial for Australia... now we are pondering whether or now we might want to go there for our 25th wedding anniversary rather than Hawaii

On my bedside table... my alarm clock, Kindle, iPad and a journal

On my reading pile... "Girls with Swords"

Movies or Shows I watched this weekend... finished Longmire

On my TV... not sure what will be on, as the Olympics start this week, so most of my shows are on hiatus

On the menu for this week... Menu for the week:
Monday ~ lasagna rolls, garlic bread, and a salad
Tuesday ~ sloppy joes, fries and peaches
Wednesday ~ breakfast - eggs, sausage, toast and fruit
Thursday ~ pizza
Friday ~ leftovers
Saturday ~ ??
Sunday ~ ??

On my to do list... laundry and housework

In the craft basket...I have a few things going right now - Working on a new cross stitch, and have an order for a few rice bags to make.

the new cross stitch

Happening this week:
Monday ~ work, work out, finish laundry
Tuesday ~ work, work out, work on Bible Study
Wednesday ~ work, work out, work on Bible Study
Thursday ~ work in craft room, sew Lici's pillows - I WILL get to this today, work on Bible Study
Friday ~ groceries, errands, clean house
Saturday ~ work on my planner
Sunday ~ church, ladies meeting in the evening

Looking around the house... I am seeing a mess after the late night of the Superbowl... too tired to clean/pick up before bed

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

What I'm wearing today... blue top, and some lularoe leggings

One of my simple pleasures... curling up with a blanket and a book

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

On my prayer list... family and friends

In closing...Thank you for stopping by. I hope your week ahead is filled with lots of blessings!


  1. LOL I know everything will go to DVR as soon as the Olympics begin. I can't wait, winter Olympics re my favorite! Hope spring is on its way to you. Have a great week.

    1. I am not that much into the Olympics now... in years past I loved it... thanks for stopping by!

  2. I love the snow, Jodi, (we got some here yesterday and am supposed to get more tomorrow) and usually I'm pretty content no matter what the weather, but, this year, I'm so ready for spring! I cannot wait until the first tiny purple crocuses of the year appear and the promise of spring with them. Thanks again for introducing pocket letters to me. I'm having a blast making them for the grandlittles! Have a blessed week ahead! <3

    1. I am so over winter.... I am ready for warm summer days!! So glad you like the pocket letters!!! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I saw that commercial. Australia would be such a great trip but I'd be happy with Hawaii as well. Maybe a little time in both? :) Hope you have a wonderful week!

    1. Both would be fun too...but don't think my budget would agree.. lol Thanks for stopping by!

  4. My weather is super bipolar too! Australia sounds like an amazing place to go! I love your planner layout, by the way!

    1. Just one of many places we would like to visit!! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I hope your week was as productive as you hoped.
    God bless you!
