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 15th, 2019

The weather...Its 31° and the high for the day of 48° today...too cold this morning! Mother Nature decided to bring back Ole Man Winter...ugh

As I look outside my is breaking... and we have snow again...

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

On my reading pile... nothing at the moment...

Movies or Shows I watched this weekend... no movies over the weekend

On my TV... Chicago Series : Med, Fire, PD, Resident, 911, Blue Bloods, New Amsterdam, American Idol (first time in a long time I am continuing on past the auditions)

On the menu for this week... Menu for the week:
Monday ~ sketti, salad, garlic bread
Tuesday ~ sloppy joes, fries and peaches
Wednesday ~ breakfast
Thursday ~ pizza
Friday ~ not sure yet
Saturday ~ not sure yet
Sunday ~ not sure yet

In the craft basket... working on a temperature afghan, got the fifteenth completed - we went back a few colors as the temp dropped back into the 30's. Still working on the other afghans (no new pics for these). I whipped up a few purses, one more to go , for the little girls in my church to put in a few Easter goodies.


purses (need to finish the bigger flower on the one yet)

Happening this week:
Monday ~ work, work out
Tuesday ~ work, work on Bible Study, work out
Wednesday ~ work, work on Bible Study
Thursday ~ craft day, errands
Friday ~ groceries, errands
Saturday ~ not sure yet
Sunday ~ church

Looking around the house... I have the itch to rearrange the living room... so I know what I will be doing on Thursday!

From the camera... These are from yesterday from when we left church and then at home...over the course of 5 hours

By the time I got home (which is like a 3 minute drive) this was my back yard

5 hours later, we have about 2 inches of snow....yuck!

What I'm wearing today... a teal shirt and my macaroon leggings

One of my simple pleasures... Phone calls from my boys

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

On my prayer list... family, friends and our country

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


  1. Sorry your crazy weather brought you snow back - makes your "trip to the beach" inspiratonal seem even brighter. Those purses are coming along really pretty and your afghan looks great. Have a WONDERFUL week.

    1. Thankfully the snow didn't last but the day! The purses are finished, and the afghans took a back seat this week...

  2. Ahhh...Jodi! Snow again! I'm sending sunshine your way RIGHT NOW!!! Be ready to receive it when it gets there! LOL! I'm so sorry! Not fun when you're chomping at the bit for spring! :( The afghan is coming along nicely (love the new color) and the little purses are soooo cute! Blessings for a great week ahead, Sweet Lady, and I hope you get that trip to the beach soon! LOL! ;)

    1. Thanks.. I will gladly accepted the sun... the snow is thankfully gone, but its been a really dreary week.. after the snow its been all rainy days! But alas April showers bring May flowers right!?!

  3. Yep, I agree a trip to the beach would be what we need, you and me both - still lots of snow here too.
    Nice purses!
    Hope you have a great week

  4. Oh I'm so glad we don't live where it snows. I don't think I could deal with snow this late into the year. I try to remember that when I start complaining about the crazy heat here in Louisiana.

    Your afghan looks simply beautiful as do the purses. So cute!

    We are doing breakfast for dinner one day this week as well, always an easy but fun dinner.

    Have a wonderful week.

    1. I wish I could say I don't live in a snowy area anymore.. hopefully one of these days!!

  5. Sorry that yucky white stuff won't leave you alone. Those little girls are going to love the purses, what a thoughtful thing. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead and very happy Easter!

    1. Hopefully Mother Nature got that last bee in her bonnet taken care of and we don't see the snow again until November!

  6. I would be crying right now if we had snow around here, honestly the weather needs to get itself sorted out lol

    Love the crochet purses, so sweet. Have a wonderful week!

    1. The weather is so stinkin crazy all over is seems.. but hopefully Spring is here to stay!

  7. Hi Jodi,
    Sorry catching up so late this week.
    Those purses are just darling. The girls will be proud to show them off for Easter. ;0)
    Hope you've been getting the nice weather now late in the week - like we are in the northwoods.
    Wishing you and your family a very blessed Easter weekend ahead. xoox


Thank you for stopping by, I hope you liked your visit! Be blessed!
