Happy Homemaker Monday ~ 12/11/17


Come join Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday.

The weather outside is::::

Baby, it's cold outside!  So very cold!

We had some snow but nothing that lasted.

On my breakfast plate:

Hot Chocolate and Toast
As I look around the house::::
The drywall in the addition is done!  Now we need to spackle and paint.  We've been discussing flooring options but haven't decided on which type to go with yet.  I'd say we are NOT going to get it done by Christmas.  There is just too much work to do and too many obligations this time of year.  Good obligations, but they take time that we could be working on the addition.  I want to enjoy the Christmas season but it is a bit disappointing to be behind schedule...

Currently reading::::


When perusing my bookshelf to pick out my next read, I wanted something set in the wintertime to get me in the "spirit".  Luckily, I love Denise Hunter and had this book on my shelf waiting for me to read.  I have high hopes for this book.

What I am creating at the moment::::

I've been working at a leisurely pace on Laken's Afghan using the Redheart Ombre yarn I wrote about last week.  I'm loving how the colors are changing and the giant granny square is turning out.  I've just gotten started, so it doesn't take too terribly long to finish a round but as it grows it is taking longer and longer.  I'm enjoying this project.

Bible Verse/Devotional



  1. Sounds like you are keeping quite busy. I have been trying to read ahead with some of my 2018 review books. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  2. That's like the only cover of Baby, It's Cold Outside that I really like - thanks for linking up, Colletta! :)

  3. I haven't heard this version of Baby It's Cold Outside before but it's lovely.

  4. Enjoyed reading your blog! Your menus look great and I love the re-do of Baby It's Cold Outside. The lyrics are so much better! Very nice!

  5. Super busy time of year. Hope you are enjoying the season and your week so far.

  6. I am running SOOOOOO late this week. I absolutely ADORE your devotional this week. Have a GREAT week or what's left of it.
