Happy Homemaker Monday ~ 11/16/2020

Come join Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday. 

Hello, and Happy Monday! 

This was a busy, busy weekend so I'm a bit late getting this posted.  Better late than never though!

The weather outside is:

It is around 52F right now.  We have some snow in the forecast for tomorrow!  Yikes!  I haven't heard if it is going to amount to anything so I'm hoping we just get some flurries.  I worry about Kaylee having to drive to and from work in the snow :( 

On today's to-do list:

We just got back from getting groceries.  We got everything put away and I'm taking a bit of a break to write this post.  I still have to read my devotions (actually, get caught up from the weekend), exercise and I want to crochet a bit before it is time to make supper.

Happening this week:

Laken is "in school" this week.  Our school district has half the students going one week and the other half the next.  So she has "in school" classes every other week and "virtual" every other week.  I just don't think they are getting the education that they would if they were to have a normal school year.  Most of the school districts in our area have closed down until December 1st due to COVID but our's is hanging on.  I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing.  I guess time will tell...

Currently reading:

I'm still reading "To Con a Gentleman" by Sarah Adams.  I'm really enjoying this book but as I said this past week has been really busy.  I'm hoping to be able to finish it up soon and post a review.

On the TV:

Hallmark Christmas Movies
Sweet Home Alabama (again)

Maine Cabin Masters

Listening to:

The Message
The Highway

On the menu week:

Monday ~ Ham and hashbrowns
Tuesday ~ Ladies Meeting (turkey and sides)
Wednesday ~ Salisbury steak and noodles
Thursday ~  Pork Chops and Mashed Potatoes
Friday ~ Spaghetti
Saturday ~ Pizza 
Sunday ~ Church Potluck

In the Craft Basket:

I'm working on a Bonnie Barker Celtic Afghan (I forget the exact name of it) for a lady Doug works with.  I've never made an afghan like this and it is challenging me in a good way!  I'm using "I Love This Yarn' in Linen per her request.  It is a paid pattern from Annie's Catalog.  I'm on row 46/149.  It has peaked my interest in crocheting again and I am enjoying the process :)

Picture From the Camera:

Laken is back to putting puzzles together.  We found some more Thomas Kinkade Disney puzzles at Hobby Lobby!  They are her favorites to put together.

Bible Verse/Devotional

"The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?  The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?"  Psalm 27:1

Have a great Monday!



  1. The afghan looks good. Annie has beautiful patterns.
    I always worry when it snows and the kids have to drive through it.
    Have a great week

  2. What a gorgeous Afghan! I love the intricate ones that are done in a simple color like linen. I need to do a grocery run but first have to sort out what's actually in my pantry.

    Hope you have a great week.

  3. Love the afghan. Looks beautiful. We may get some snow today. Have a great week.

  4. The afghan is gorgeous. Fall is crochet and puzzle time. Glad you could post. Come by and see me and link at the Fabulous Party.

  5. Pretty afghan! Like the color, seems very peaceful somehow. Glad we don't have snow in our forecast for awhile again. Our school's doing the same thing with a Hybrid plan though they've slowly been trying to get the kids back to a choice of full-time in person. The seniors and juniors that wanted to are back full time. Hoping things stay sane enough that my son gets a chance in January. Hope you are having a wonderful week so far!
