Happy Homemaker Monday ~ 12/18/17


Come join Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday.

The weather outside is::::

We had some snow this past week that actually hung around for a few days.  Then it warmed up and the snow slowly melted all except for a tiny bit.

We were supposed to go Christmas Caroling after Church last night but it ended up raining and icy so we stayed in and had soup, rolls and cookies.

On my breakfast plate:

Special K Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar
As I look around the house::::
We have been spackling our finger off around here!  I actually have a spot rubbed raw on my finger from the way I was holding the "spackler".  But, now, the spackling is done and we get to paint!  So exciting!!!

On another front, the space we are living in right now is getting even more cramped with presents and snow gear.  I will be so glad when we get to spread out a bit more!

Have you ever read anything by Dee Henderson?  This will be my first and I'm super excited to read it because I have the whole "O'Malley" Series on my shelf.  All 6 of them!  As mentioned above, I'll be on Christmas break for 2 whole weeks and intend to spend my relaxation time reading the O'Malley stories.  I really hope I like them!  I'll let you know :)

  6. I visited your blog and love the fact that you have a section with the books you read during the year. I mark off the ones I've read in an excel folder but haven't put them up by year. I think I'll try to note that for 2018.
    I want to wish you and yours a wonderful Christmas!

  11. I'm running a bit late while still recovering and not having a HHM this week is allowing me to play catch up. I hope you had a WONDERFUL Christmas and will see you in 2018.

  12. As you can see, I'm running a bit behind. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and am looking forward to catching up with you in the new year! Blessings!
