Happy Homemaker Monday ~ 9/11/17


Come join Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday.

Update on Uncle Charlie:

He's home from the hospital and is on the mend.  He goes back for a follow-up appointment tomorrow and I'm sure he'll be looking at some physical therapy.

Many thanks to all of you who have said a prayer for him!

The weather outside is::::

 Cool and clear.

Just like that morning 16 years ago today.  It will be forever sketched in my mind.

Please be in prayer for those in the path of Hurricane Irma.  My Aunt Mary lives in Daytona Beach, FL and has evacuated.

On my breakfast plate:

Proverbs 3: 5-6



  1. Happy anniversary coming up! Hope your aunt is safe

  2. Irma has been keeping me glued to the TV and really grateful that I live in Minnesota. My TV viewing is a bunch of baseball and Vikings football tonight. The Voice begins again soon too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  3. Wow, it doesn't seem like its been 16 years ago! It was a day just like today.. so sad to think about! But wow, time goes by so fast doesn't it! Happy early anniversary!!! Do you ever blog about weight watchers?? I have been (not) doing weight watchers (paying for it and not actually doing a good job of it) for a year now and would love to find some bloggy friends to do a weekly weigh in with? So far no luck haha. :) Anyhow, have a great week!!!

  4. Happy Anniversary! Glad to hear your Uncle is on the mend.

  5. I always enjoy people's "daybooks". It's so nice to get a glimpse into the lives of fellow bloggers especially to rejoice with. Congratulations on your upcoming anniversary and so glad your uncle is on the mend.

  6. What a fun round-up of "things" of your week!

  7. We all remember that day 16 years ago. Certain details are etched in our minds. Thanks for sharing your week with us and thanks for linking up at Mondays @ Soul Survival. Blessings!
