Happy Homemaker Monday

Welcome to my first Happy Homemaker Monday since November! I am excited to be able to participate with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom

The weather outside is::::
Overcast but nearly 60 degrees! 

On the breakfast plate this morning::::
Just my cup of Yerba Mate this morning. We are doing intermittent fasting two days a week so no breakfast, only a very light lunch.

I love the mug my son got me for Christmas and use it every makes me happy:)

As I look outside my window:::
I see freshly mowed grass and beautiful flowers! It must be Spring!

Right now I am::::
Watching the dog busy with his toys while drinking my cup of Yerba Mate and typing this post. 

As I look around the house::::
Dog toys are strewn everywhere and I just picked them up last night! My desk and dining room table need some attention but everything else looks good. We do need to repaint and are making plans for that and I would love to replace the carpet with bamboo flooring; carpet is looking tired after 20 years and several dogs. The painting will get done but the flooring hasn't made it to the top of the priority list yet so guess I will just have to shampoo!

On today's to do list::::
Laundry x 2 loads

Clean off my desk
Spend at least an hour organizing my craft room
Walk 3 miles
Make some cards that need to go out this week

Currently reading::::
I just downloaded Praying for Your Elephant: Boldly Approaching Jesus with Radical and Audacious Pray by Adam Stadtmiller...I will be starting it today!

I also have two Jodi Picoult books going...Leaving Time on audio and Plain Truth in a paper-turn-the-page book

On the TV today::::
I am currently enjoying Hart of Dixie on Netflix! Plus I need to finish watching this season's episodes of Downton Abbey.

On the menu this week::::

Monday - Baked potatoes, Butternut Squash and Green Salad
Tuesday - Near East Copycat Rice with curry
Wednesday - Tacos with Spicy Quinoa "Burger"
Thursday - 
Friday - Mushroom Barley Soup with fresh bread
Saturday -
Sunday -

What I am creating at the moment::::   
I am working on a beautiful shawl/wrap for my niece for spring. I am using Paton's Lacy Sequins yarn.

Shine Like Diamonds Shawl

Favorite photo from the camera::::

Wilson pouting because I won't let him help me sweep and mop the floor
Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::
"Better is little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble therewith.
Proverbs 15:16 KJV

Well, that's it for my Happy Homemaker Monday! Tomorrow I have a recipe for Three Ingredient Biscuits that are light and fluffy!



  1. Poor Wilson! A scratch behind the ears might help.

    That is a cheerful mug.

    1. You can be sure Wilson gets more than his fair share of affection. He is such a snuggle bug:)

    1. Oh, me too! I bought the color in the picture for my niece and a beautiful green for me.

  3. I love Heart of Dixie! I'm about to start season three. So good! :)

    1. It certainly has been a fun show to watch! You are ahead of me as I am still in season one. Thanks for stopping by!
