Happy Homemaker Monday

Good morning, friends! It's yet another working Monday for me, and I just got back from being away at work all weekend! But, I'm doing whatever I have to do for my little family, right?

The Weather: I took one look at the weather forecast for this week and only one word comes to mind: Yuck! Snow, cold, wind...UGH.

Right now I am: Typing up this post, going over my (lengthy) to-do list before I go to work, and wondering if I have time for a quick run to the store.

Thinking: "Wouldn't it be nice if the weather forecast was WRONG and we got nothing but sunshine?" ha.

On my TV: Some season 12 of Degrassi TNG. Maybe an episode of American Horror Story.

On the menu for this week: 
Monday: The Drunken Noodles I meant to make yesterday
Tuesday: Stuffed Pepper Rings
Wednesday: Pizza Omelets, Turkey Bacon, Toast
Thursday: Chicken Couscous, with steamed veggies
Friday:  Pork roast and potatoes
Saturday: Beef Vegetable Soup
Sunday:  Turkey Spaghetti

On my to-do list: 
*Run dishwasher
*Sort laundry
*run to the store
*clean bathrooms
*sort through Ella's clothes. decide what goes to a friend, and what goes to a consignment sale.

In the craft basket: Way too much stuff. Ella and I will be working on something Valentine-y for Gabe.

Looking forward to this week: Valentine's Day, even though we're celebrating the Friday before. Turns out both of us work this weekend.

Looking around the house: Let's just say I notice that I've been gone all weekend.

From the camera: 

Yep, that's Ella in sunglasses and a belly dance scarf. Never a dull moment in this house.

On my prayer list: My parents, kid brother, and the town I live in. We're supposed to be in for some insane weather. Praying people are safe on the roads!!

Bible Verse, Devotional: 

Have a beautiful week! 


  1. Hope your weather won't be as bad as predicted. I know they seldom get our weather right. Cute pictures. Hope you have a wonderful week and get to relax a bit!

  2. Yuck for long working weekends and cold snowy weather!! :(

    But yay for Valentine's projects with your little Sweetie (love the photos! Lol) and your yummy sounding menu. HOpe your weather is a bit more mild and glad you're still celebrating with your HOney early.

    Blessings on your week ahead dear Joanna. xoxo

  3. Cute photos! I give, what are drunken noodles? Have a great week.

  4. I have to admit...I'd love some of your snow! We came from Oregon to Arkansas two years ago and the change in climate is the biggest shock, I think! I miss my winter snow! Hope you have a great week!
