Happy Homemaker Monday ~ 9/4/17


Come join Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday.

Update on Uncle Charlie:

He's still in the hospital.  He ended up having to have surgery on his collar bone.  The had to put in pins and a plate.  The plan is to try to start weaning him off the pain pump and the IV meds and get him ready to possible come home the within a day or two.

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

The weather outside is::::

 It seems like fall has fell upon us in the span of a day's time!  We actually had a fire built in the cook stove this weekend.  It is supposed to warm up a bit this week and I'll take it!

  1. We have had more rain and cold than are usual the last week too. I hope your picnic doesn't get rained on. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  2. we had over 105 degree for past four days.. today the weather is a little better..

    1. We had a high of 89F here today. I hope your weather cools down a bit!

  3. A picnic sounds fun and so does your menu for it. Glad your uncle is starting to do a little better. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  4. Haven't been on a picnic in so long, that sounds nice :) Hope you have a fantastic week :)

  5. We just watched Guardians of the Galaxy volume 2. I like the music but I'm not a diehard fan of the series.

    Come see what I'm reading

  6. Guardians of the Galaxy is so funny! We haven't seen the 2nd all the way through though. Tried to take the family to the drive-in to see it this year, but it started playing too late and the kids were too tired to stay after the first movie, haha. Have a great week!

  7. Oooh! I really want to watch Guardians of the Galaxy 2 soon! Looks like a fantastic movie!

    Here’s my It’s Monday! What are you Reading!

  8. No fall yet here in the Southwest! I envy you a little. My husband when to see Guardians with our son and his family, but I haven't seen it.

  9. Here I am looking forward to milder temps... today will be our last day of high 80's and then we fall into the 70's and possibility of much needed rain! I wish your dedication for exercise would pass on to me.... although I am getting a bit more active! Have a wonderful autumn!

  10. We love Guardians of the Galaxy! We watched the first on together as a family and waited anxiously for the second one to come out! It was just as good as the first one! My husband and I are in our mid 50s so we remember almost all of the sound tracks!

  11. Sorry I'm so late catching up! Glad to hear your Uncle is doing better. Hope you have a wonderful weekend Sweetie! xoxo
