Happy Homemaker Monday ~ 6/24/19

Come join Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday.
I was MIA from blogland last week as we were busy with Church Camp Meeting.  The girls had a ball with the youth program (Kaylee is now a helper!).  It was a great time of refreshing but I'm so glad to be able to stay home some this week :)
The weather outside is::::

This weekend was gorgeous after having a full week of rain!
We're supposed to have more rain today but the temperatures are going to much warmer and in line with summertime.

On my breakfast plate:

Granola Bar

As I look around the house::::

I got all caught up on the neglected housework I had due to Camp Meeting.  The floors are swept, the laundry washed and put away and the grass is freshly cut.  It feels good.

I'm oh-so-close to being done with "A Lasting Impression" by Tamera Alexander and am loving it so far.  I didn't get much reading done last week but I did find some time to read this weekend.  I'm hoping to have a review on Tuesday but I don't want to make any promises!

What I am creating at the moment::::

I finished the "Cat-in-the-Hat" inspired baby blanket and will be adding it to my Etsy Shop soon.

I love these colors together!

Next on the hook is a baby blanket for a lady at Church who is having a baby girl sometime within the next two weeks.  I'd love to have the blanket done by next Sunday.  I'll let you know how I do and have pictures next week.

 I have a ton of pictures from Kaylee's 18th Birthday Party but they are on my phone and I can't figure out how to get those pictures into my blog :(  But, we had a great time!


P.S.  I hope you can come by and visit my ETSY SHOP!


  1. I love that blanket and those colors! I am thankful that you had a nice camp week. I am heading to your Etsy shop now.

  2. We had a gorgeous weekend too... and alas the rain is back! I love, love, LOVE that pretty!! Have a great Monday!

  3. That baby blanket is just gorgeous! Those colors are amazing together and I love the scallops. I think it's been a weekend for catching up on housework, that's what we did here, manage to get it all done by Saturday night so we could go swimming Sunday at a local state park.

    Have a wonderful week!

  4. I enjoyed catching up with your post. The colors on that baby blanket are very refreshing. I hope you have a great week.

  5. Glad you enjoyed your camp - always nice to come back to our routine too. Great menu - have a great week

  6. Your book looks great, love the cover. As I love the crochet. Perfection. I haven't done any crochet for years but you tempt me!

  7. Hi there! That blanket is absolutely adorable!! I love those colors too 😊 I bet your shop does great!
