Happy Homemaker Monday ~ 9/5/2022

Come join Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday. 

Hello, and Happy Monday!


I hope everyone has a day off from work/school to rest up and enjoy some family time :)  I know I am!

If you've noticed my absence lately, or if you're wondering what is new with me, I hope you'll check out my Life Update and Fall 2022 Goals post.

Now, on to Happy Homemaker Monday:

The weather outside is:

Today is the "unofficial" end of Summer and the start of Fall, depending on who you ask.  For us, Laken started back to school on August 23rd and it has been cool in the morning (not to mention in the office!) so I've already broken out my Fall clothes.  What about you?  Still Summer?  Ready for Fall?

On today's to-do list: 

Since the hubby and I are off work and Laken is off school, I'd really like to get some decluttering done in the Family Room.  One corner is piled high with bins of miscellaneous items that either need to find a home or go somewhere else (donated, etc.)

Happening this week:

If you took the time to read my Life Updates and Fall 2022 Goals that I linked above, you'll see that this week my daily routine is changing.  I'll be working on a new morning routine as well as an evening and weekend routine.

As for the rest of the happenings this week, it looks at this point like a fairly normal, uneventful week ahead.  I pray it stays that way!

The hubby is now on a fixed 3rd shift (except for a 2nd shift thrown in every 7 weeks) and Laken is in school.  I think we're finally getting into a rhythm of work/school/home-life.

Currently reading:

I'm hoping to read at least 3 books this Fall.  That is one per month and will be more than I've read all Summer!  I think I'm going to start with one of the following books.  Which one do you think I should read first?


Not much.  A little bit of HGTV here and there.

Listening to:

Mostly KLOVE and The Message with a bit of The Highway thrown in for variety.

On the menu today:

Hamburgers, Fries

In the Craft Basket:

I haven't picked up anything crafty in months!  I want to get Sunny Blue Hawaii 2 back off the shelf and work on it.

Memory Verse

"Guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.."

Psalm 25:5

Have a great Monday!



  1. Aww, your kitty is so cute! You will love Redeeming Love! I used to work in my aunt and uncle's Christian bookstore and it was always a best seller! Sounds like you have been super busy, so I hope your new work hours will work out better for you. Have a fantastic week!

  2. I would say try the Paris children. Fall is in the air here too. Off to read your other blogpost - have a great week

  3. Oh Redeeming Love is one of my all time favorite books. Sounds like you've been busy, but glad to see you back. I am ready for Fall, I've had enough of summer and heat hahaha

    Have a blessed week!
