Happy Homemaker Monday

I am not a big fan of "time change"--either way! It seems to throw me off for about a month before my body finally gets used to it! Oh well, not a choice unless I move to Arizona or Hawaii! there's a thought:)

It's time for Happy Homemaker Monday! Are you ready??? Sandra has a new Happy Homemaker Monday "button" for us to use--looks inviting, doesn't it! You can check out Sandra's Happy Homemaker Monday at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.

As I look outside my window:::
Today was beautiful! Blue sky and mid-50s. However, the wind has been brutal today. I love seeing the daffodils coming out of the ground--promise of spring:)

Right now I am:::
Sitting on my bed writing this post, drinking one more glass of water before bed.

Thinking and pondering:::
I have been making lists and planning my trip. I am really looking forward to my trip with DD and DGD!

On my bedside table:::
Still reading Sanctuary by David and Beverly Lewis; read aloud is still The Book Thief.

On my TV tonight:::
Hubby and I watched the amazing movie Unfinished Song this afternoon! WOW! This movie was so amazing! Last night we watched 42 and that movie too was well worth watching! 

Listening to:::
The sweet snore of our bull dog:)

On the menu for this week:::
No menus again this week:( Just flying by the seat of my pants!

On my to do list:::

  • Laundry (always)
  • Work on organizing my office
  • Get stuff ready for thrift store
  • Get ready for next week's Happy Stampers Club
Happening this week:::
Hair appointment on Thursday and lunch with friend afterward! Great day indeed!!!

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Still nothing:( So much I want to do and need to do but just haven't felt like being creative lately.

My simple pleasure:::
Making bread! I love making good bread for my family:)

Lesson learned the past week:::
No does not always mean no:) If you don't ask, the answer will always be no!

Looking around the house:::
My desk is a mess but the kitchen is clean! Dog toys litter the living room floor (as usual)! 

From the camera:::

Last night I posted a picture of Rocky in his bed but today the cat took over! Rocky was a little frustrated that the cat had taken over!

Prayer List:::

  • My sister still recuperating from hip surgery
  • Upcoming trip with DD and DGD to visit family
  • Friends who need a house--moving because of new job
Bible verse; Devotional:::
"Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need." --Hebrews 4:16

Okay, that's it for me tonight! I hope you enjoyed a little look into my life via Happy Homemaker Monday!



  1. Hi Kat ! I find the Fall back time effects me more then the Spring ahead for some reason.

    1. That's interesting! Usually it's the other way around! I have issues with both and nobody told the dogs and cats the time changed:)

  2. I enjoyed this post. I was too busy with an online class to join in for HHM last night - maybe next week. Have a good Tuesday!

    1. Thank you Deb! Hopefully you will make HHM next week!

  3. Oh I hate that time change for sure! I am usually a "fly by the seat of my pants" kind of menu planner too. I'm not so good at planning my meals ahead of time but I've really been trying. Enjoy your week!

    1. With being on Weight Watchers it has been easier for me to eat what I feel like eating--more satisfying. Thank you for visiting!

  4. Saskatchewan also ignores the time change.

    The cat looks quite comfy!
