Happy Homemaker Monday: February 3, 2020

I'm incredibly late putting up this post, but only because today was a gorgeous day, I had a work thing to attend, and then chose to spend the rest of this gorgeous day with my kids.

The Weather: Today was gorgeous. Sunny, mid-60's, a springtime dream. It's supposed to cool off little by little, and we may even have some snow by the end of the week. It's February, after all.

How I am feeling this evening: The weather has me in good spirits. I got a lot done today, but I am absolutely exhausted.

On my mind: Everything from a running grocery list to "what scent should I put in the wax warmer?" It's a mess up in there, ha.

On the breakfast plate: I had a scone for breakfast. My boss is Welsh, and he makes amazing scones. I had one with some butter, and I had tea. That sounds almost like proper breakfast food.

On my reading pile: "Uninvited" by Lysa TerKeurst. I haven't read so much as a page in it yet, and haven't really touched "A Man Called Ove". BUT I did finish Songs for the Missing and it was every bit as heartbreaking as I thought it would be.

The goal this week is to get at least three chapters into Uninvited and at least crack open Ove.

On my T.V.: I'm re-watching CSI...because I've had a schoolgirl crush on Gil Grissom/ William Petersen since forever.
Also, going to attempt to watch Very Valentine on Lifetime. Adriana Trigiani can do no wrong in my opinion, but Lifetime better not take too many liberties.

On the menu this week: Oh, man. Full disclosure: This week is gonna be a disaster. My boss is going out of town, which means the girls and I are house sitting. Which means dinner is going to be weird for a few days. But I made Italian Chowder (like Zuppa Toscana, just more veggies) today, and I'm making a pork roast with vegetables tomorrow. Might do a beef and cabbage skillet on Wednesday. Thursday afternoon is when the girls and I leave, so I might just order a pizza for Gabe to have here, and get another one to go for us.

From the camera: 

My mop-topped youngest child can apparently climb playground equipment by herself now. SIGH. Why do they have to grow up?

Looking around the house: I'm quite pleased with what I see. No complaints here. It's quiet.

Chore I'm not looking forward to this week: Clearing out the laundry room of odds and ends. Stuff just builds up, y'all, and it's gotten to the point where it has thoroughly annoyed me. But does it annoy me more than actually cleaning it out? Time will tell...

To relax this week, I will: I have Wednesday off (allegedly), so I will sleep in (supposedly). We'll see!

On my prayer list: My Mom in Wisconsin, my sister recovering from a car accident, this country, the whole world.

Bible Verse/Devotional: 

Have a beautiful week!


  1. You have to take advantage of those gorgeous weather days, especially in February! Hope you were able to sleep in and get to fully enjoy your day off today!

  2. Well look at you with your proper breakfast. Lol! Your littlest is such a Dolly. Both of your girls are. 💕 Even for a crazy week your menu sounds so yummy. I hope it's been a good one so far and you have a blessed weekend ahead. xo

  3. I don't blame you for choosing to spend time with the children on such a gorgeous day! It was nice over the weekend here and dh and I got the carport cleaned (mostly anyway) and it was so nice being able to work outside. Now, of course, we have snow on the ground again. LOL! Hope your week is going well! Blessings!

  4. I am so sorry to be so late! I'm so glad you got to spend some fun time with your kids - do it while you can! I hope you had a GREAT week and I'll see you again tomorrow.

 How on earth has it been that long since I last posted? Yikes. One of my New Year's Resolutions is to get better at regular posting. Li...
