Happy Homemaker Monday

Good Heavens! It's my first HHM in FOREVER. Life's been crazy, to be sure, but I've missed blogging on the regular, so I'm going to try harder. I SWEAR.

The weather: Sunny and warm. Thunderstorms later this week, and I know my garden will be glad for the rain!

On my reading pile: Nothing. Ugh! Ella and I have a library date this evening, though, so I'm sure I'll find something good.

On my T.V.: Old-school Disney movies (Lady and the Tramp) and Amelia (the Hilary Swank movie)

On the menu for this week:
Monday: Cube steak in a mushroom/wine sauce, potatoes, carrots
Tuesday: Gabe's cooking. Pork tacos
Wednesday: Ella wants hamburgers, so we'll make that happen
Thursday: Pork Loin roast
Friday: I'll be in Asheville for work all day. NO IDEA.
Saturday: Pizza soup
Sunday: Pasta, per tradition

On my to-do list: Clean the bathrooms, library date, check the gardens, clean the fish "cage", maybe pick green beans.

What I am sewing, crocheting, creating: Goodness. Nothing. I need to get my rear in gear.

Looking around the house: I need to move my plant stand outside. The house smells amazing, as dinner simmers in the crockpot.

From the camera: 

After my most recent miscarriage, the loss of my unborn son, Thomas,  I was moved to do something healing, something constructive. I've planted a little garden with amazing plants in it. The lavender is in bloom right now.

On my prayer list: This country. How can we have so much hate toward one another?


  1. Old Disney is the best! Hope you get your rear in gear lol
    that made me laugh when I read it. no but seriously have a great week.

  2. I love the garden you planted. What a sweet way to remember the GOOD of a bad situation.

    I hope that most people's prayer lists look exactly like yours. I just don't understand what is going on in this world!

    Have a great week.
