Happy Homemaker Monday ~ 11/25/19

Come join Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday. 

I'm putting together a Pen Pal sign up for 2020.  I'd love for you to join in the fun!  Click HERE for more information.

The weather outside is::::

It rained all night long with some flurries this morning.  At the moment, it is just cold!

On my breakfast plate:

English Muffin, Vanilla Chai Tea

As I look around the house::::

I still haven't decided how I want to arrange the furniture/exercise equipment in the Family Room.  I'm starting to get a bit claustrophobic with it though and need to figure out something soon!

On today's to do list::::

I need to create a menu and grocery list for this week and sweep the floor.  I also need to exercise and it is my turn to make supper.
Happening this week::::
Devotions:  I started reading Luke this week and also studied "Potiphar's Wife" for Ladies Bible Study Group.  Takeaway:  Keep my eyes on my man and my family and not on what someone else has!

WW:  I had another loss this week although minimal.  I started the new Green Option of the MyWW Program. mom made fudge.  Peanut Butter Fudge.  I might as well have smeared it on my hips!

Exercise:  I met my Fit Point goal for the first week in a long time, thanks to my treadmill :)

Housework: I want to work on both the Family Room and Our Bedroom.  They both need a good organizing and the Family Room needs rearranged.

Bills:  Pay Day is on Thanksgiving.  I'll need to make our budge for the pay period and write out bills, go to the Bank and go to the Post Office.

Doug:  The hubby's OT  slowed a bit.  He'll be on vacation Wednesday through next Tuesday for Thanksgiving break and Deer Season.  I love this time of year!

Kaylee:  Kaylee is done with her Computer Lit Class for the semester and only has 5 more days of her other classes.  The Saturday after her last class she has plans to veg-out the whole day with her boyfriend, Shawn.  It has been a big adjustment for her and I'm very proud of her work ethic.

Laken:  Laken goes to school Monday and then is off until next Tuesday for Thanksgiving Break.  She's bemoaning the fact that she has to go on Monday!  I told her it could be worse...

Currently reading::::
I finished "Keep It Shut".  Yay!  It was such a good read.  Come back tomorrow for the review :)

Currently I'm reading "Made Well".
I'll probably come back to "Taming the To-Do List" next to finish it.

  1. Enjoy your Thanksgiving break with your family!

    Wishing you a great reading week

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you.
    Funny one about the pb fudge smeard on your hips :)

  3. The penpal thing sounds great. I've sent you an email. My weekly update

  4. Love Casting Crowns! And that afghan is going to be gorgeous!! Have a great week!

  5. Keep It Shut sounds like a great title. Hope it lived up to the hype! I have an eternal to-do list, so Taming the To-Do List is a book I probably need to read. :) We love watching New Amsterdam too. We're a few episodes behind but maybe this weekend we'll catch up. Have a great Thanksgiving!

  6. Looks like you had a pretty good week. See what I've been reading at Girl Who Reads
