Happy Homemaker Monday ~ 7/26/2021

Come join Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday. 

Hello, and Happy Monday!

The weather outside is:

Another nice week ahead :)

On today's to-do list: 

Monday morning is filled with appointments for Laken.  First she has a sports physical for volleyball and track.  Then physical therapy for her knee pain.  The orthopedic surgery gave the "good-to-go" for sports and said that her knee pain is from her muscles developing at different rates and that PT should be able to alleviate the pain.

Annalea will be hanging out with me too :) 

Happening this week:

We need to finalize the menu for the wedding with the caterer who is making the food and the cake.  We also need to work on decorations.  Other finishing touches for the wedding are all listed in a tablet to check off one-by-one :)  Less than 3 weeks to go!

Laken will be headed back to Volleyball open-gym on Tuesday and Thursdays until regular season practice starts toward the middle of the month.  Her school starts back on August 23rd and she is NOT happy about it!  She's nervous about heading into High School.

The hubby is on second shift this week so I'll be feeling lonely in the evening but have time to work on the Wedding Afghan for Kaylee and Shawn.  I have about 8 more rounds on the border to go...

I won't have Annalea on Tuesday as Steph is off work that day.  I'm thinking of treating myself to a mani-pedi.  I'm looking forward to it :)

Currently reading:

I just finished up "The 10 Commandments of Marriage" by Ed Young.  It was the first book I've finished since March.  You can read my review HERE.  I'm not sure what I'm going to read next.  I have a ton of fiction on my Kindle but I'm kinda in the mood for another non-fiction.  Any recommendations?

On the TV:

Hot Mess House

Black Widow on Disney+ ~ It was a good movie and well worth the money to purchase it as a "Premiere" movie.  It was much cheaper than if we'd have all gone to the theater to watch it.  There was some mild language so be cautious with the littles.

Listening to:

This week I featured "You Had Me From Hello" by Kenny Chesney on Songs on Sunday.  I'll be featuring all things "Wedding" for the next month.  I hope you'll check it out :)

On the menu week:

Not done yet :(

In the Craft Basket:

As mentioned above, I have about 8 rounds on the border of the Wedding Afghan for Kaylee and Shawn.  I worked on it Saturday evening while watching Black Widow and made "some" progress but not as much I'd like.  20 days to go!

Picture from the Camera

Our Church Youth Group made a trip to Hovatter's Wildlife Zoo in Kingwood, WV.  Isn't this giraffe gorgeous?

Memory Verse

"I hurried and did not delay To keep Your commandments."  Psalm 119:60

Have a great Monday!



  1. Oh, I love giraffes! What a great picture. Did you get to feed it? Not an advice type non-fiction book but I really loved The Wild Trees by Richard Preston. It's about climbing the Redwood trees in Oregon and Northern California. Hope you have a great week!

  2. Hello Friend!
    So happy to hear Laken is back to sports. I bet she's happy. And love the giraffe photo! So cute. We fed giraffes at a zoo once when we were on vacation and I couldn't believe how long their tongues are. Lol
    Blessings on your week. xo

  3. Giraffe, so cute but boy do they drool.
    Seems like things are going well for the upcoming wedding.
