Happy Homemaker Monday

Good morning, everyone! It's good to not feel like I'm going to keel over...I think a 48 hour virus visited me this weekend. But, it's gone now and I'm honestly ready to hit this week running...mostly because I have no choice! ;)

The weather: Rain, and lots of it. Clearing up later in the week, just in time for me and Ella to take a trip out of town, which we desperately need!

Right now, I am: Overseeing schooling, baking cookies for us (and for Gabe to take to work) and typing up this post.

Thinking: About all of the things I have to do this week, and about a very special project I am working on. Also, I think Ella and I need a crafty project to do today. It's gray and rainy and terrible out there.

On my reading pile: Recipe books, "If Angels Fall" by Rick Mofina (I love me some crime books)

On my TV: Ella and I wanted to watch The Halloween Tree because it discusses The Day of the Dead (it's today! we're studying it)

On the menu for this week: 
Monday:  Breakfast for dinner (it's usually Friday, but we switched things up this week)
Tuesday: Fajitas
Wednesday: Pork roast and potatoes
Thursday: Pulled Pork Nachos
Friday: Garden vegetable macaroni and cheese
Saturday: Potato Soup
Sunday: Spaghetti bake

On my to-do list: 
Finish School
Organize kitchen shelves
Find a good gnocchi recipe

Looking around the house:  I can't wait to get all of my cookbooks/recipe magazines on the shelves in the kitchen. :)

From the camera:

My guard cat. I absolutely love my big guy!!!!

On my prayer list: My Mom and Dad, my kid brother, a friend and her family, my sister from another mister, who can't seem to catch a break this week.

Bible Verse, Devotional: 

Have an amazing week, friends!
