Happy Homemaker Monday ~ 5/31/2021

Come join Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday. 

Hello, and Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend :)

The weather outside is:

The weather over the weekend was chilly and rainy.  I was hoping for the nice weather that was predicted for today so that we could celebrate Memorial  Day and remember those who died so that we could have our freedom.  I'm looking forward to that 80F weather come the weekend.

On today's to-do list: 

I'm getting this post up late so I'll tell you what I've already done today.

We spent the morning getting laundry finished, cleaning the family room and bedroom, going out to eat for lunch, relaxing and going to the Lake in the evening.

I started a Summer Self-Improvement Challenge today that lasts until Labor Day.  It is hosted by Diva and the Divine over on youtube.  Click HERE for the details.  I met all my daily goals for the challenge!  Yay, me!

Happening this week:

Kaylee and Shawn's wedding is fast approaching so I want to get all the invitation sent out this week.  The majority of them will go out Tuesday but we still need a few addresses.

Laken is out of school for the Summer!  Wednesday was her last day as a Middle School Student.  She is now in High School!  I don't know how the time flies so quickly...

The hubby is working first shift (daylight) this wee and had a nice long weekend that was much needed.

As for me, I'll be watching Annalea from 8am-3pm and then working to meet all my above-mentioned Summer Self-Improvement Challenge goals :)

Currently reading:

I started "Aloha Hideaway Inn" by Elana Johnson today at the Lake.  One of my goals for the Summer is to get back into reading.  I picked this book to kick things off because it is set in Hawaii :)  So far it is intriguing and the writing is very good.

On the TV:

I haven't watched TV in weeks!  That will change this coming weekend because "Raya" is coming to Disney+ on June 4th.  We opted not to spend the extra money to watch it as a premiere so we're looking forward to seeing it this Friday or Saturday.  It has been a long time since we've had a Family Movie Night.  Too long!

Listening to:

This week I featured "Help Is On The Way" by TobyMac on Songs on Sunday.  I love this song and have listened to it over and over :)

On the menu week:

I haven't made our menu yet...

Monday ~  Subway
Tuesday ~ 
Wednesday ~ 
Thursday ~  
Friday ~ 
Saturday ~ 
Sunday ~ Potluck at Church

In the Craft Basket:

I haven't been crafting a lot lately.  I did manage to tie the ends in on Kaylee's and Shawn's Afghan that I'm making for the Wedding Shower.  But that was only on the 17 squares I have completed.  I still need to crochet 16 squares, crochet them all together and then crochet the border.  All before the shower in July!

Memory Verse

"For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who remain, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord."  I Thessalonians 4:16-17

Have a great Monday!



  1. Summer self-improvement looks like a good idea. I am off to watch the video in a few minutes.
    Can't wait to see pictures of the wedding.
    Have a great week

  2. What a gorgeous picture! The summer self-improvement sounds intriguing. I'll have to circle back and check it out after work. Thanks for reminding me about Raya, I've been holding out to watch it as well. Hope you have a great rest of your week!
