I try to get in on Happy Homemaker Monday on Monday MORNING but I just didn't make it today...again! But at least it's still Monday:) I did manage to walk on the treadmill for 50 minutes again today and made a batch of Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls so I could get photos for a post later this week.
Happy Homemaker Monday is hosted each week by Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. You might want to pop over to see what she's up to.
So, let's get started with Happy Homemaker Monday!
As I look outside my window:::
It's dark now but today we warmed up into the 40s! The little bit of snow we had melted:) We managed to have freezing rain this morning, wind, rain and beautiful sunshine today! Does that mean it's nearly spring???
Right now I am:::
Listening to the TV (recaps of last night's Oscars) while blogging.
Thinking and pondering:::
Oh my! I have been stressing big-time lately about my trip the end of the month to visit family. I don't have a very positive relationship with my mother, sister or brother but thought I needed to visit since it has been a few years. My daughter, granddaughter and I decided to make this trip together:) I finally got the motel booked--super stressful since DD and DGD had wants that I wanted to be able to meet and still stay on budget. WIN!!! I got a motel that will meet our needs and wants very well for $61 per night including tax--Woo Hoo!!! I still have a few things to stress about but the big ones are taken care of.
On my bedside table:::
I am reading Sanctuary by David and Beverly Lewis. I have several books on the Kindle App on my iPad in case I need them. I love having books on my iPad for when I travel so I don't have to take books with me.
On my TV tonight:::
Not sure. So sad that Downton Abbey is over till next January:( Fortunately PBS has some other great programs for us in the meantime.
The TV and our precious Rocky snoring! His snoring is adorable:)
On the menu for this week:::
Monday--Quinoa Burger Tacos
Wednesday--Baked Potatoes, Broccoli, Cashew "Cheese" Sauce
Thursday--Mizidra (rice and lentils tostada-style)
Friday--Potato Corn Chowder
On my to do list:::
- Deliver Stampin' Up! orders
- Clean off my desk
- March Challenge: Take 3 post
Happening this week:::
I am hoping this is a week without much happening.
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
I have a whole list of things I should be working on but I haven't been working on anything lately:( I don't like the way I was joining my Granny Squares so I decided to take them apart and start over. I also have a Pineapple Edged Afghan to finish. There are some road trips coming up so should be able to get something done.
My simple pleasure:::
Wrapping my granddaughter in my arms and just snuggling together! I look forward to the end of the month when I can do this for a few days:) She will soon be too big to appreciate the time with Gramma.
Lesson learned this past week:::
Things really do turn out when you give them over to God and let Him take care of the situation.
Looking around the house:::
Fresh Cinnamon Rolls on the kitchen counter; books stacked beside my chair; dog toys strewn across the living room floor; laundry piled on bedroom floor ready to get washed tomorrow.
From the camera:::

Well, that's it for tonight!
