Happy Homemaker Monday ~ 2/6/17

Come join Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday.

This was a fairly good week!  I got a lot accomplished and finally made the trip to the chiropractor for my neck.  It bothered me for a few days after getting adjusted but is feeling MUCH better.  Now for this week!
The weather outside is::::

It is actually fairly nice outside today.  We had low temperatures for a few days but then yesterday we had a high of 45F!  It was quite refreshing and almost all the snow has melted. 

On my breakfast plate:

What I am creating at the moment::::

I finally got around to taking pictures of my Attic 24 Moorland inspired Cosy Stripe Afghan.

I still don't have the ends tied in, but other than that it is finished!

My husband saw it as I was working on it and made a claim.  I was a bit surprised that he liked it as much as he does because of the purple.

I really enjoyed this pattern and will be making another one very soon!


From the Camera:::
 I joined a Valentine's swap and received my package on Saturday!  So exciting :)
Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::


  1. Another great book recommendation! I love swaps - I really need to be on the lookout more for them. What channel shows Murder She Baked? Have fun on Date Night!

    1. Hallmark Movies and Mysteries and they are really fun to watch :)

  2. Gorgeous afghans! And I love grilled cheese and tomato soup. Reminds me of childhood favorites.

    I love those Murder She Baked mysteries.

    Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  3. What a lovely swap package! Your blanket is wonderful, no wonder your husband has claimed it, which is lovely, but a shame you will not be snuggling under it yourself - perhaps he will share!

  4. That little Valentine house is so cute. I really need to be brave and just join in on one of these swaps, they always look like so much fun.
    Glad your neck is feeling better. Hope you have a wonderful week!

    1. I'm hosting a Favorite Color Swap! You should join in! They are so much fun :)

  5. I love the colours in the Moorland blanket - I was seriously tempted to start one myself but I'm still working on the ripple blanket so it has to wait!!

  6. What a fun blanket! Love the mix of the two stitches - I have a project in progress with a similar look. I feel for you on weaving in all those ends! But definitely worth it in the end.
    I am running a year long Granny-Spiration Challenge, and would love if you came and linked up with us :) There’s also a yarn giveaway going on right now. It can be found here:

  7. Your afghan is beautiful! The meals you have planned for the week sound delicious.
