Happy Homemaker Monday

Well, I missed the Sunday Night Chit-Chat AGAIN! I'll see if I can make it happen next Sunday! I have a little bit of energy to do the Happy Homemaker Monday and then it will be off to take a nap for me! Gotta get over this nasty flu!

It's time for Happy Homemaker Monday hosted each week by Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. So, let's get started...

Weather...It is currently 45 degrees with cloudy skies! I think we may see 50 degrees today before it's all over and the sun does peek through every now and then just to let us know it's there:)

Right now I am...Sick and wishing I was back in bed. 

Thinking...of all the things that need to be done after being gone last week but I don't have the energy to do them. Maybe tomorrow...

On my reading pile...

  • Spiritual: Bible and Desire of Ages
  • Magazines: Vegetarian Times, Paper Crafts and Crochet World
  • Books: Sunset Bridge by Emilie Richards (2nd book in the Happiness Key series)
  • Read alouds: Jubal Sacket by Louis L'Amour (4th book in the Sackett series) and The Santa Cruise by Mary Higgins Clark
On the TV...The season finale of Downton Abbey was on last night:( Not sure how long we have to wait for the next season. However Masterpiece Classics has a new series starting in March. Might be a possibility. In the meantime, I have lots of Hallmark movies left to watch on SpiritClips.

Favorite blog post of the week (mine or other)...

Something fun to share...

The Outside of Creative Beginnings
Creative Beginnings is the yarn/craft store I visited in Seaside, Oregon. Check out their selection!

On the menu for this week...
Since I am not feeling well, I'm really not sure but this is what I'm thinking...
Monday--Soup and sandwiches
Tuesday--Tacos with Quinoa Taco Burger
Wednesday--Baked Potatoes and Butternut Squash

On my "to do" list...I am not even going to think about my "to do" list until I get over this flu!

What I am knitting, crocheting, sewing or crafting...
I started working on a doily while on vacation. I didn't get very far but will start working on it again when my headache goes away.

Homemaking tips...I don't have one for today.

Looking around the house...Dust everywhere! No dusting or sweeping has been done for a week and with three dogs, that isn't pretty!

From the camera...I can't get my pictures from iPhoto into my blog. Don't know what the problem is:(

On my prayer list...My hubby who still has the nasty flu and me that I don't get any worse than I am; Carla to be able to find a home for her chameleon; 

Bible verse; Devotional... 
"I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember they wonders of old.
"I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of they doings.
"Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?
"Thou are the God that doest wonders: thou has declared they strength among the people" Psalm 77:11-14

Well, that's it for me today. I am off to take a nap:) Have a wonderful day!



  1. Oh, I hope you feel better very soon! Maybe, it gets to 50 degrees and some sun will warm you up a little:)

    1. Thanks Lena! Unfortunately, the 50 degrees came with sun:(

  2. I hope you feel better quickly.

    1. Thank you Heather! I think it's almost over:)

  3. Feel better from that terrible "bug" soon, Kat. xx

    1. At least the bug didn't catch us WHILE we were on holiday! Didn't help Hubby's work schedule any though:(

  4. Oh Kat! :( (((Hugs))) I do hope you're feeling better soon!! Thanks for your prayers! xo

    1. Thanks for the hugs Carla! Fortunately I am starting to feel better and so is hubby! I do so hope you find a good home for your chameleon.

  5. You know, I thought I had your blog on my sidebar, and I don't. I kept wondering why I never saw posts from you except for the Happy Homemaker Monday...I'm a ditz sometimes LOL

    I've now added you to my sidebar :)

    Really do hope you feel better soon and get over that horrible flu.

    1. Thank you Sandra for adding me to your side bar:) We are on the mend for sure! Should be 100% by the weekend!
