Happy Homemaker Monday ~ 12/7/2020

Come join Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday. 

Hello, and Happy Monday! 

I hope you had a great first week of December.  Things around here have been CRAZY!

The weather outside is:

It is Sunday evening as I type this.  The temperature is about 29F and snow is in the forecast.  I love the crisp air.  There truly is something to enjoy about every season.

On today's to-do list: 

Being that today is Sunday, it was a quiet day.  We had Church in the morning and then picked up a grocery order this afternoon.  It was our first time trying curbside pickup and I loved it!  I shopped from my kitchen table and didn't even have to get out of the car when we got to the store.  Do you use grocery pickup?

Happening this week:

I mentioned last week that Laken's schooling is now fully virtual.   She has two zoom classes a day.  The rest is done on her ipad.

Kaylee's cricut should be coming tomorrow (Monday).  She is super excited to start creating and getting items listed in her etsy shop.  I'll let you know more about this later!

The hubby is on vacation this week.  Yay!

We're pretty much done with our Christmas shopping except for stocking stuffers.  We still like to put stockings together for the girls.  If you have any great ideas stocking stuffer ideas for a 19 and 13 year old girl, let me know!

Currently reading:

I decided to give up on Christmas reading.  I've been watching so many Christmas Hallmark Movies that for now I need something other than Christmas to read.  I've not yet started "To Catch a Suitor" by Sarah Adams, but I loved the first book of this series "To Con a Gentleman" and am certainly looking forward to spending some time with this book soon.

On the TV:

Hallmark Christmas Movies (LOTS OF THEM!)

Pride & Prejudice (2005)

Listening to:

This week I featured my first Christmas song of the year "Noel" by Lauren Daigle.  Lauren is one of my very favorite artists.  I hope you enjoy "Noel" as much as I do.

On the menu week:

Monday ~ Salisbury Steak, Mashed Potatoes
Tuesday ~ Deer Steak, french fries
Wednesday ~ Irish Stew
Thursday ~  Ham, Noodles
Friday ~ Chicken, Rice
Saturday ~ Pizza
Sunday ~ Church Potluck

In the Craft Basket:

Currently in my craft basket is a Baby Pink Beautiful Shells Baby Blanket for my etsy shop.  I also still have one pot holder to make for a Christmas Jingle Gift.  I already have the four dish cloths and one pot holder made.

Bible Verse/Devotional

"And all the people were on their way to register for the census, each to his own city."  Luke 2:3

Have a great Monday!


I'd love for you to stop by and give THE SHOP some love!


  1. Sounds like you're off to a great start for the week, I hope it's a GREAT one.

  2. I've never used grocery pick up but I have a few friends who like it. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  3. Hello lovely Lady and happy holidays to you! I love grocery pick up and have been using it more and more. I just feel safer and it is so convenient. Only a couple times have I found they've forgotten a few things on my list. Mostly it's been great!
    I think a big thing right now that both of those ages of Ladies might love are cocoa bombs. You can find them in lots of coffee shops or bakeries - maybe even grocery stores right now. They're actually very fun and usually really yummy. They're some kind of chocolate shell (often round but sometimes in a shape - like a Xmas tree) and they're filled with cocoa mix and marshmallow. So when you pour hot milk or water over them, once the liquid starts seeping in they "explode" (very gently) in the mug and all the cocoa mix and marshmallows pop up. You stir and drink and it's rich yummy cocoa due to the chocolate shell dissolved in there too. Also, my 14 year old loves little lotions and lip balms (Burt's Bee's are the best) especially this time of year. Hope that gave some inspiration. 😉 Blessings. xo
