Homemaker Monday ~ 12/30/13

Come join Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for Happy Homemaker Monday.

The Weather...

Right Now I Am...

Trying to get back  into my early morning routine even though the kids don't start back to school until Thursday..


That it is still really dark outside!

On My Reading Pile...
The Sum of All Kisses (Smythe-Smith Quartet, #3)

I'm going to be starting "The Sum of All Kissess" as part of the First Read of the Year party over at A Book Journey.


On My TV...

We got really behind on watching our shows during December so our DVR was FULL.  We've slowly been catching up one show at a time.  So far we've caught up on Bones, NCIS, NCIS LA, and Elementary.  We still have Grimm, Agents of Shield and maybe one other that I can't think of at the moment.

What I Found While Surfing the Net...

Peanut Butter Brownies!  I'll be making these for New Year's Eve and will hopefully be sharing my thoughts on them for Full Plate Thursday.

Peanut Butter Brownies

On the Menu This Week...

The plan is to use up what we have in the pantry and freezer this week and then get back into the routine of menu planning.  So this week might be a bit hodge-podge.

Tuesday:  Game Night at Church with Finger Foods
Wednesday: Aunt Donna's for New Year's Dinner
Sunday:  Church Fellowship

On My To Do List...

Today:  Clean refrigerator and our bathroom.
Tomorrow:  Bake, Menu Grocery List, New Year's Eve Game Night at Church.
Wednesday:  Sleep in, New Year's Dinner at Aunt Donna's.
Thursday:  Get the kids back to school, Bills.
Friday:  Groceries.

In the Craft Basket...

Nothing at the moment.  I need to start a project.

Looking Forward To This Week...

Fellowship with Family and Church Family

Looking Around the House...

We've been working on organizing the house before I start my new job on January 7th.

From the Camera...

On My Prayer List...

My new job and adjusting.
Commitment to read the Bible through in the new year.

Bible Verse, Devotional...

"You are God, ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, abundant in kindness."  Nehemiah 9:17


  1. Hmm I should clean my refrigerator too. Might I suggest you do that first..BEFORE you begin The Sum of All Kisses. It was such a good read I fear all other things on your list will be pushed aside. I remember trying to get the kids back into a schedule..good luck! Happy Holidays Colletta :)

    1. I did as you suggested and cleaned the frig first!

  2. I should really clean my refrigerator as well. Best of luck starting your new job. Happy New Year. I am stopping by from the HHM at Sandra's blog. The linky would not accept my link.

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be by soon!
