Happy Homemaker Monday

Oh, I am so late. And it was worth every second! I worked some, I hung out with Ella after her lessons were over, and I even got to spend some time with Gram. Tomorrow is going to be even more busy, so let's get this HHM done!

On the weather front: PERFECTION. Absolute perfection. Fall is on the way, with chilly mornings, but it's still far enough away to be shorts-weather by the afternoon.

On my bedside table: Cookbooks. My Kindle. "The Summer of the Gypsy Moths", which is what Ella and I are reading together every night. "A Cold Dark Place", which I will finish today, I swear.

On my TV: Goodness, nothing. I have no time for anything.

Thinking and pondering: That the undertaking of going through all of Ella's clothes for an upcoming consignment sale is much bigger than I initially thought. Good heavens, but she has a lot of clothes.

Listening to: "Safe and Sound" by Taylor Swift (from the Hunger Games soundtrack) It's a beautiful and haunting song. She has a tremendous voice.

On the menu for this week: 
Monday: Asian Ribs and Brown Rice
Tuesday: Italian Chicken over egg noodles, veggies
Wednesday: Shipwreck Casserole
Thursday: Frittata
Friday: Egg Roll Bowls
Saturday: TBA
Sunday: Chicken and Red Pepper Spaghetti

On my to-do list: 
It's late in the day, so the only thing on there is to give the bathrooms a quick once-over and vacuum the living room! Woohoo!

Looking forward to: I'm going to take the day off and go take Ella shopping in Johnson City on Friday, and a friend is having a LulaRoe party on Saturday (leggings, ya'll!)

What I plan on doing for myself this week: Did ya'll hear me say leggings? Hehe, also going to cut my hair on Thursday.

Favorite Photo: 

I love my chamomile!

Lesson Learned: Patience is so important. I've been praying, begging, pleading, angry, yelling with God, on the subject of another baby. Yesterday, the word "patience" appeared 3 times in a single chapter. So, yes. I need to be patient. One day.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses: 

Have an amazing week, my friends! God Bless You!
