Happy Homemaker Monday ~ 1/25/16

Come join Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday.
The weather outside is::::


On the breakfast plate this morning::::
Special K Cinnamon Pecan Cereal

As I look outside my window:::

I see 3 feet of snow in my yard!  The fence surrounding our yard is now invisible!  I'm just praying that it doesn't melt too fast and cause flooding.
As I look around the house::::
I see a mess!  Everyone being home all weekend has taken its toll.  Board games are everywhere.  This is a reminder of good quality family time :)

On today's to do list::::
  At the time I'm writing this, I don't know yet whether the girls are having school today.  If they don't, it will be another day at home.  If they do have school, then it will be off to the gym. 
Happening this week::::
Monday.....Gym, start laundry.
Tuesday....Cleaning Day, Cheer.
Wednesday....  Gym and Fold/Put Away Laundry, Prayer Meeting
Thursday.....Bills, Menu and Grocery List, Cheer in the evening.
Friday....Gym, groceries, virtual Tea Party with some friends.
Saturday....Clean Bedrooms, Schedule for following week and have family time.

Currently reading::::


I'm all caught up with my books for review, so I'm reading Where Wildflowers Bloom from my book shelf!  So far, it is very good and has great potential :)

On the TV today::::

Amazingly, we watched no TV this weekend!  I have so many shows to catch up on that I don't know if I even want to try.  I do want to watch Hallmark's "Unleashing Mr. Darcy".  Has anyone watched it yet?

What I am creating at the moment::::

I'm still very slowly working on my Beautiful Shells Afghan for the Family Room. 
The second block for the CAL came out on Thursday.  Here's mine:

  1. What a great post, love the crochet squares.enjoy your weekxx

  2. You're very organised. I like a household chore routine also. I hope the melting snow is not a problem and your week is a good one for you and your family.

  3. Thanks for the heads up on Unleashing Mr. Darcy. I love Jane Austen related things.

  4. I want to learn to crochet granny squares. You wouldn't happen to know of any YouTube videos to recommend, would you? Also, I like the way you sum up what's going on in your home in a single post like this. I just might have to do something similar on my blog:

    Have a great week!

    1. I don't know of any videos off the top of my head but I'm sure if you do a search there will be many hits! Good luck!

    2. There are MANY You Tube videos on Granny Squares! I've searched. LOL Someday I want to do a sunburst square afghan.

  5. That's a great Proverb.
    Your afgan is beautiful!
    Have a lovely week!

  6. I hope that you have a good week and that you stay safe and warm in the bad weather. Enjoy your crocheting! xx

  7. Thanks for the visit at my site.... enjoyed my time here... I ahve to agree your crocheting is very nice indeed.... I never could get into it that well... I am not a counter or something... I actually saw the Darcy movie and didnt think it was that good... remakes of the classics have to be really something for me, I guess. Have a great and week, and God bless!

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog - it was lovely to meet you:)))

    It sounds very cold and snowy where you are - I am in Australia where it is summer and quite warm. Love your afghan, it looks like it will be very cosy :)


  9. Three FEET of snow! My stars! I hope it melts quickly and away from the house. :)

  10. Your menus sound wonderful for a winter week -- and I love your crocheting! I did a bit of that years ago; I should take it up again -- especially in winter :) Have a great week!

  11. Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Your menu sounds delicious as well. I'm gonna take a look around your blog too!

  12. Two feet of snow here, looks like we both got hit this weekend, ugh! I hope you thaw out soon, have a great week!

  13. Love your Afghan square! Have a wonderful week.

  14. Love your afghan - gorgeous! I love any movie or book that has 'Mr Darcy' in the title, so will have to try and watch that one.

  15. Hi Colletta,
    I love your post telling all about your life, your afghan square is just beautiful and I would love to sit at your table to enjoy all that great food. Have a fantastic week!

  16. Love your crochet, so pretty :)

    You know I am actually watching Unleashing Mr. Darcy right now, enjoying it :)
    Have a great week.

  17. You must be down "south"...That last storm was a big one! It seems odd that us in Maine didn't get a single flake from it! I'm not complaining. LOL I'm sure there's more snow ahead for us, but I'm loving the less snowy winter this season.

  18. I'm so jealous of your snow! I wish it would snow or warm up here... LOL.
    Your crochet is gorgeous. I need to look into Unleashing Mr. Darcy. I hadn't heard of it until your post but am quite intrigued.
    Have a wonderful week!

  19. Wow - you did get LOTS of snow. Now it sounds like you look a lot more like my northwoods. Lol!

    Love the crochet. Looking so pretty!! Stay warm and cozy and safe and have a wonderful week. Colletta! xoxo

  20. Oh wow, lots of snow... so glad we didn't get any of that horrible weather! That book looks interesting. Pretty crochet square. Have a great week!

  21. I want some snow!! Snow and board games…perfect combination!! Hope you have a great week!! :)

  22. Tanks for stopping by! Sounds like a great week ahead!

  23. Thanks for stopping my Hope Whispers. My house is always a mess after the weekends. Don't know why because we are usually gone for most of it! The menu sounded like it was just right for a cold snowy week.
