Happy Homemaker Monday on Tuesday

I don't know what happened to Monday but it just kinda got away from me! I could have just NOT done Happy Homemaker Monday but I enjoy it so much I decided to do it on Tuesday instead.

I was super busy making cards on Monday and can hardly wait to show you! I have three projects for Happy Stampers Club (Wednesday night), 2 squares for a Collage Swap (I made 5 of each square) plus a couple birthday cards and a few thank you cards (I always need thank you cards)!

Well, let's get started with Sandra's questions for Happy Homemaker Monday. You can check out Sandra's answers at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.

As I look outside my window:::
It's dark! I am writing this at 12:30ish AM! I know! I know! I should be in bed sleeping but couldn't so decided to get up and be a little productive instead. Now, back to the weather...it has been foggy and cold since last Thursday. Today the temperature didn't get over 30 degrees (F) and with the fog everything is icy:(

Right now I am:::
I just took another Melatonin so hopefully when I finish this I will be ready to go back to bed. But right now I am sitting on the couch with my feet on the coffee table just typing away!

Thinking and pondering:::
Just thinking about the cards I need to make before Wednesday!

On my bedside table:::
I am currently reading Land of my Heart by Tracie Peterson. Our read aloud is Any Way Out by Ann Vitorovich.

On my TV tonight:::
Not a thing!

Listening to:::
Nothing; it is absolutely quiet:)

On the menu for this week:::
Tuesday -- Vegetable Stew with green salad
Wednesday -- Town Day (no cooking)
Thursday -- Baked Potatoes and Baked Squash with broccoli
Friday -- Potato Corn Chowder
Saturday -- Church potluck; not sure what I am taking
Sunday -- Bulgar Chili

On my to do list:::

  • Laundry
  • Finish up prep for Happy Stampers Club
  • Finish tax prep (almost finished)
  • Clean bathroom
Plans for this week:::
The only thing I have planned for this week is Happy Stampers Club on Wednesday night.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Just making lots of cards right now. I need to get my granddaughter's crocheted hat finished so I can mail it off.

My simple pleasure:::
Eating chocolate! Right now my favorite is Kirkland's Dark Chocolate Super Fruits:) 1/4 cup of these delicious chocolates is 5 Weight Watcher's points and worth every bit!!!

Lesson learned this week:::
The healing process is a slow one and I need to be patient!!!

Looking around the house:::
Dog toys, as usual, littering the living room floor! The dining room table looks like somebody blew it up with my stamping stuff all over it! 

From the camera:::

Dish cloths I made for Christmas gifts. Love the yarn!
Prayer List:::
  • Acquaintance wanting to sell her house and move. Seeking God's will.
  • Friend's daughter who was going to Namibia to work with Cheetah.org but had her car broken into and passport, driver's license, computer, etc. stolen on day she was to fly out. She is trying to get everything replaced so she can leave on February 3. 
  • Sister who is scheduled for hip surgery mid February
  • Nephew's baby having a procedure on Thursday
Bible verse/Devotional:::
"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles. They shall run and not be weary. They shall walk and not faint." -- Isaiah 40:31

Thank you for visiting today! I enjoy sharing my Happy Homemaker Mondays (and Tuesdays) with you:D



  1. Oh I love your dishcloths and yes, the yarn is just beautiful :)

    Nothing wrong with doing HHM on a Tuesday hahahah

    Hope you have a wonderful week :)

  2. Hi Kat. Great dishcothes! Glad you stayed up and did your HHM post! I love your scripture for the week -- one of my favorites! Have fun at your Happy Stampers Club. I use to have a good friend who was into stamping and I did a little with her - lots of fun, but I haven't don't it for years now - unless you count stamping a smiley face on papers after grading them! :-) Have a great day and sleep well tonight!

    1. Thanks, Deb! I love making dish cloths because they are quick and easy; instant gratification. I so LOVE stamping!!! I was telling my stamping buddies last night that of all the crafty things I've tried, stamping is my favorite and has lasted the longest (13+ years).

  3. Plenty of time before Saturday to figure out the potluck.

    Those dishcloths remind me of ones my aunt had.

    1. Some people really like to use the crocheted or knitted dish cloths and they are fun to make!
