Happy Homemaker Monday ~ 9/14/15
Come join Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday.
On the weather front:

It was a rainy weekend which I didn't mind.  Sometimes a person needs a good, rainy day.  The rest of this week is supposed to be clear and in the 80's.

On my bedside table:

Welcome to Last Chance (A Place to Call Home, #1)

On my TV:

I watched Runaway Bride this weekend for the umpteenth time!  Love that movie.  I can't wait for the new TV season to start though.  I'm missing me some NCIS!
On the menu for this week:

Monday  - Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup

Tuesday - Chicken and Rice, Broccoli, oranges
Wednesday - Dinner at my brother's house
Thursday - Steak, Baked Potatoes, Corn, apples

Friday -Pizza Friday!
Saturday - Weiner Winks and French Fries
Sunday - Ham, mac-n-cheese, peas and grapes

New Recipe I tried or want to try:

I didn't make anything "new" this weekend.  I did make a funfetti cake with my mom's recipe for Fluffy Icing that I will be posting about on Thursday.

On my To Do List:

Clean kitchen, dining room, family room, laundry room and sewing room.
Make Supper
Help with homework

In the craft basket:

African Flowers, Scrappy Granny Stripe

Looking forward to:

Reading a few good books this week :)

 What I plan on doing for myself this week:

I plan on getting my walking groove back on.  I can't believe I didn't walk a single day last week.  This must change.
Lesson learned the past few days:

Don't take family for granted.  My dad, Melvin, could use some prayers.  He is diabetic and keeps getting cellulitis in his leg.  They are going to run some tests to see why it keeps reoccurring.  Thanks so much!
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:

"As He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct."  1 Peter 1:15

Happy Monday!!!


  1. Hey!
    Tell me about your walking you have a specific time or distance that you walk? I'm looking to get into that as we have a gorgeous walking trail by our house!
    Have a great week!

  2. Oooh I haven't made African Flowers in a long time, I have a blanket that I still need to finish and it's all worked in African Flowers :)

  3. I'm hoping to get a bit more reading time this week too. I have yet to learn how to do African Flowers but I just love them. Have a wonderful week!
