Happy Homemaker Monday ~ 1/17/2022

Come join Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday. 

Hello, and Happy Monday!

The weather outside is:

As I'm writing this post Sunday evening the snow is coming thick and heavy.  We're supposed to get a total of 5-8 inches, at least that was the latest prediction.  I've heard everything from 6-20 inches over the past few days.  I wouldn't mind so much but the hubby, Kaylee and Shawn have to drive in it to get to work.  Prayers appreciated!

On today's to-do list: 

Snuggling in the house and reading.  I didn't want to have to go grocery shopping in during the snow storm, so I stocked up on enough for a week on Friday.  I thought the stores would be crazy and they were!

Happening this week:

We should hear back from Laken's biopsies from her scopes this week.  They may be delayed because of the snow, but I would think we'll hear back by the end of the week.  I'm praying that they can do something and get Laken's stomach problems treated.

The hubby is on daylight this week.  I'm not sure if he'll be working overtime or not.  He'll probably find out when he gets there.

This Friday is the Friday Night Sew In!  I'll be working on getting my Mom's Blue and White Quilt sandwiched so I can start hand quilting.  I'm looking forward to it :)

Currently reading:

I'm currently reading "The Ex Talk" by Rachel Lynn Solomon.  It is the Kindred Readers Book Club selection for February 2022.  I'm reading it now so that I can have discussion questions ready to go.  I've just gotten started so I can't really say one way or the other what I think.  I will say that there is some language in it.  I'm not really used to that but I'll overlook it as long as the story is there.

On the TV:

Happy Feet
Steeler VS Cheifs Football
Encanto (again!)

Listening to:

This week for "Songs on Sunday" I featured "River of Life" by Max Powell.  I hope you'll check it out :) 

On the menu week:

Monday ~ Pork Chops, homemade mac-n-cheese
Tuesday ~ Spaghetti, Garlic Bread
Wednesday ~ Fish, Fries
Thursday - Ham, Fried Potatoes
Friday ~ Pizza
Saturday ~ Toasted Cheese and Tomato Soup
Sunday ~ Potluck at Church

In the Craft Basket:

I worked almost all Saturday to get Mom's Blue and White Quilt top pieced.  Now that it is together I think there is almost too much white???  The sashing is white-on-white.  Maybe I should have picked a blue on white???  Oh well, too late now!   :)

Memory Verse

"But I have trusted in they mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.  I will sing unto the LORD, because He hath dealt bountifully with me.?"
Psalm 13: 5-6

Have a great Monday!



  1. I think the quilt is beautiful! Blue and white is such a pretty color combination. Prayers for all those having to drive in your snowstorm, I know I was quite nervous when my older son drove to work in our snow on Saturday. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  2. First time on you blog...nice to meet you!

  3. First time I visited your blog...Nice to meet you!
