Happy Homemaker Monday ~ 11/18/19

Come join Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday. 
The weather outside is::::


The leaves are all gone.  It is gray.  Just plain dreary today :(

On my breakfast plate:

English Muffin, Vanilla Chai Tea

As I look around the house::::

The laundry is all washed and folded.  I just need to hang up a pile of clothes.

On today's to do list::::

I'll be hanging out with my little cousin, Damon, today :)
Happening this week::::
Devotions:  I've been reading in Mark and also studying Eve while working our way through the Bad Girls of the Bible work book.  Takeaway:  Don't try to cover up sin.  Repent, be forgiven and strive to do better!

WW:  I made it to my Workshop Saturday morning.  It was iffy for a few days as to whether I'd have a vehicle to go.  The hubby had to work and the Nitro was in the shop.  However, the Nitro was done being worked on Thursday evening and I was able to go to my Workshop.  I had a loss this week!  Yay!  Come back Wednesday for my Weekly Weigh In for more info on the new MY WW plans and which one I chose :)

Exercise:  I got my new-to-me treadmill on Saturday and walked on it Saturday and Sunday.  I'm on a roll!

Housework:  Pretty much caught up.  We still need to rearrange the Family Room and decide where the home for my treadmill and bike is going to be.  Right now it is sitting off to the side of the room but I'm not sure if I like it there...

Bills:  Not a pay week.

Doug:  The hubby is still working tons of OT.  He's also back on swing shift so he'll be working all 3 shifts on a rotating basis.  He doesn't mind 1st and 3rd shift but on 2nd shift he won't get to see the girls except for a few minutes before they head off to school.  He knew that when he took his new position this would be a possibility so we'll just have to deal with whatever may come.

Kaylee:  3 weeks to go in the Fall Semester and she is ready for break!  After taking a year off of school after graduating High School, this first semester College has been a pretty big adjustment for her.  She is doing so well, though!  She had all A's at midterm!

Laken:  Laken got her 7th grade pictures back and she looks adorable!  Other than that their isn't much new going on with her.  Just trying to keep her grades on track and reading :)

Currently reading::::
I switched books to keep my interest going.  I'm really enjoying "Keep It Shut".

I'll probably come back to "Taming the To-Do List" at some point and finish it.
Up next on my reading list is:
 On the TV::::

Home & Family
All the NCIS's
All Rise
Buff City Law
New Amsterdam

Listening to:

On the menu this week::::
Monday -  Cheeseburgers, Soup
Tuesday -  Chicken Biscuit Bake
Wednesday -  Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches, Curly Fries
Thursday  - Pizza
Friday -  Ham Pot Pie
Saturday -  Chicken, Buttered Noodles
Sunday - Potluck at Church

What I am creating at the moment::::
I've been working on a slouch beanie for Kaylee and a regular beanie for Laken.  I didn't get pictures yet though.  I'm not sure what I'm going to work on next.

  2. By the way, I finally got my books. Thank you so very much!!

  3. Seems to soon for all the leaves to be gone. We have a few hanging on but I know it won't be too much longer before our trees are bare as well. Pretty picture. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  4. Good for you for getting on track with your new treadmill! I have a hard time exercising when it gets ugly outside. And yay on all the OT right before the holidays ;) Hope the schedule isn't too torturous for him.
