Happy

Happy Monday Friends.  It’s been two weeks already!  Wow!  Last week was CRAZY!  And it went out with a bang.  Both on a great note and on a not so great note.

More about that in a few minutes .  I can’t believe it is the end of February already.  This year is flying by!

So let’s get started with the last Happy Homemaker of February

The weather:::.

The next few days are really supposed to be very spring like! (I am so excited!!)
As I look outside my window:::

I see brown. Mud. ICK!
Right now I am:::

Listening to my husband as he watches a movie I recommended.
Thinking and pondering:::

how long my poor kiddos will be tossing their cookies
On my bedside table::: pens and a journal
On my tv:::

Champion
On the menu for this week:::
Monday – Chicken and Pasta
Tuesday – chicken Tortellini Soup
Wednesday – Pork BBQ and potato Wedges
Thursday – Mc & Cheese
Friday –  Chili
Saturday – Grilled Cheese
Sunday – Salad (for fellowship dinner)
On my to do list:::

the kitchen needs a deep deep cleaning, laundry, my bedroom needs straightened
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::

My newest Cricut project is a coffee mug with vinyl on it that says “Coffee is my Love Language”
My simple pleasure:::

Reading outside and I am definitely hoping to do some of that this week
Lesson learned the past week:::

I still can pull an overnighter with the teens.  No movies and no sleep.  I love them.  and this time I didn’t have anything crazy to do afterwards so I came hoe and slept.
Looking around the house:::

I have a whole bunch of work that needs to be done pretty much everywhere .  and the sick toll has reached four. Me and Hubby are over it  and Child 1 and 3 have it now.  With each person it seems to change slightly.
From the camera:::

Just a snippet of the youth group overnight
Prayer List:::

Friends Family and church members who are sick and/ or going through Hard times
Bible verse, Devotional:::

Titus 27-9 NIV

In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.

Teach slaves to be subject to their masters in everything, to try to please them, not to talk back to them

These are my verses to go with my word for the Year…INFLUENCE!!  I am trying to keep them forefront as I go about my days.

AHHHH! Happy Homemaker Monday- 2/12/2018

Happy

AHHHH!! It’s been two weeks in a row!  I’m getting into the swing of things and Hubby has made it clear that as I am beginning to feel better he does not want me to over do it and stay up too late tonight.  So I have worked EXTRA hard to power through and finish this baby up.  and when I am all through I am going to take my pricing prompts journal and curl up in bed and obey orders.  On another note be watching in the upcoming weeks for a very SPECIAL transformation that I will be working on.  I am so excited I can’t wait to share it with you all!

Now let’s get Happy!!

The weather:::.

It’s been rather mild and That’s ok and we g to to see this lovely glowing orb in the sky.  It looks vaguely familiar.  We don’t get to see it very often here in the winter,  I was just commenting to hubby how the gray skies were getting to me so that bright ball of glowing gas ws a nice treat…FROM INSIDE!!

As I look outside my window:::

I see lots of melting snow.  it rained a lot this weekend so we lost our nearly 10 uncles from last week’s storm

Right now I am:::

In comfy clothes I have attempted to get dresses twice in the last three days.  It’s been rough.  I have had to miss out on lots of fun stuff this weekend because I have some sort of strange sickness.  Some duggest the flu but I definitely don’t have all the symptoms.

Thinking and pondering:::

how long will this last…no joke.  Im not used to laying on the couch for hours at a time but just simply walking across the room WEARS ME OUT!!

On my bedside table:::

Bottle of water, my phone, cough drops Essential oils my diffuser

On my tv:::

Full House and Family Matters ( the only time I get to binge watch) And holding a book does not help aching joints

On the menu for this week:::

(I must note that I am grateful that at the beginning of this year that I had it set in my head that I was going to plan out my meals a month in advance, so all I would have to do was grocery shop- well this week that paid off because the LAST thing I have wanted to do was plan meals- or think of food for that matter though I have not been tossing my cookies, food just does not sound good)

Monday –  Burgers and fries
Tuesday –  Taco Casserole
Wednesday – Stuffed meatloaf (stuffed with cheddar cheese mashed potatoes) as long as I feel better
Thursday – Chicken Broccoli and rice casserole
Friday – Chef Salads
Saturday – Grilled cheese and tomato Soup
Sunday – Loaded Baked Potato Coup

On my to do list:::

AHHHHH! I can’t even think about that…it pretty much is get better and not over do it

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::

not a blessed thing

My simple pleasure:::

drinking anything Hot in the winter….hot cider, hot tea, hot coffee, hot chocolate

Lesson learned the past week:::

just do one small thing.  it will make you feel so much better, even if you feel rotten

Looking around the house:::

Let’s not talk about that!

From the camera:::

AHHHH

this is a shot from my Cricut design space canvas.  this will be an upcoming project that had me absolutely GIDDY late last week

Prayer List:::

Friends with very sick little ones, sick friends in general, new jobs, Hard stuff in general.

Bible verse, Devotional:::

For this week I am focusing On Esther 2 & 3

I’m NOT late-YET!! Happy Homemaker Monday 2-5-2018

Happy

Happy Monday Evening!! (Yay I made it!!)  It has been a few weeks but I am back.   My hopes were to get this posted this morning but hubby and I decided what my body really needed more was sleep..  Yesterday was rough.  I thought I was dealing with my head cold getting worse and it seemed as though I was battling a major sinus headache but in reality what was really going on was a migraine to beat all migraines.  And I know some of my friends who suffer from migraines sleep while they have their migraine BUT I have never been able to.  I sleep horribly and quite honestly it feels as though my brain is shaking in my head.  Weird right??  so after the migraine goes away I sleep A LOT!!

So Let’s Get Happy

The weather:::.

COLD COLD COLD and snowy. the kids actually had a 2 hour delay this morning
As I look outside my window:::It’s dark. BUT I know there is this blanket of cold white stuff EVERYWHERE!!

Right now I am:::

Writing this up, thinking about how much I want to sleep some more .
Thinking and pondering:::About this migraine- it was 8 months ago we made some changes in our daily lives.  Hubby and I used to suffer from headaches daily and we made these changes.  It is so rare for us even to experience a headache now.  wow this one kicked my butt and I am so glad it’s over.

On my bedside table:::

I don’t have a bed side table but I have shelves on the back of my bed.  What’s there is hand lotion, some books , my  water bottle and maybe chapstick

On my tv:::

Malibu Dan the Family  Man  (a new David A.R. White Tv show on PUREFLIX

On the menu for this week:::

Monday – Meatball subs and fries
Tuesday – Homemade chicken Nuggets baked Potatoes and carrots
Wednesday –  Loaded Baked Potato Soup
Thursday – made at home subs
Friday – Mac and cheese with hotdogs (per a child’s request)
Saturday – Pulled Pork and French Fries
Sunday –  (not quite sure yet) maybe lefts overs

On my to do list:::

this is a funny question!!  considering I spent most of last week battling a cold and a crazy weekend, and then the whole migraine and recovery I have a bunch to do.  I have laundry, some dishes, and various other things round the house.  I did accomplish to get some things done but they did not feel very substantial at all.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::

nothing at the moment.  I am working on a hand lettering challenge this year But I am behind!

My simple pleasure:::

daily writing in my writing prompts I picked up at our local 5 Below store.  It has been stretching me as I force myself to fill in ALL the lines!

Lesson learned the past week:::

Do NOT lay on the floor when you have a horrible headache, especially if there are kids running playing a game.  Let’s just say I needed second Lunch.

Looking around the house:::

eh….what can I say it could be SOOOOOOO much worse!

From the camera::
:Happy People
Prayer List:::

oh there are lots of big things right now friends and family recovering recovering from major surgeries.  A loved one with terminal brain cancer.  Friends with hurts that run so deep that only a Heavenly father can heal!

Bible verse, Devotional:::

Currently reading:::: Meet the New You and my new review book for the monthHello Mornings

On the TV today:::: well we watched Family Matters during lunch and the Brady bunch

This is the project I worked on with another lady at church yesterday.  it was fun but we learned some ins and outs of Cricut design space..LOL.  and here is a quick snapshot of my new space hubby created for me as part of my Christmas present.  I LOVE IT!
Praying for::::  Family in So Cal. Friends and family going though some tough stuff! Church

Bible Verse, Devotional that is resonating with me at the moment::::

I am still SLOWLY going though Hebrews and I am almost finished with it!  Today I was in Hebrews 12:7-17

I am also Reading through the Bible chronologically  this year and I am somewhere in the middle of Genesis.  I am a few days behind and I will catch up easily over the next few days. The two oldest kiddos were challenged to do it in Sunday school so I have accepted the challenge right along with them!

I hope you have a great week and I will do my VERY best to not be late to the Party next week BLESSINGS!
