Happy Homemaker Monday- Better Late than Never 1-16-2018


Greetings and I am so sorry this is LATE!  What a weekend this has been and boy was I exhausted by the time I hit this morning.   Seriously though let’s get going before I get side-tracked by something else.

Breakfast time….what is on the plate this morning:::: Nothing really I wasn’t really hungry

Looking around the house:::: YIKES!!  We are doing some re-arranging , including putting our living room back in order!  Yes hat means the Christmas tree MUST come down tomorrow.

On today’s to do list:::: Get this blog post done.  I have some other late correspondence as well that I need to catch up on

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

The weather outside is:::: ICK…snow again, but it is not as cold so possibly not as bad as the last Happy Homemaker post.  I will admit though I’m in desperate need  of some legit WARM sunshine.

On the menu this week::::

Tuesday- Meatball subs
Wednesday- Tortellini Soup
ThursdayPhilly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes (Yeah I found that yumminess on Facebook)
Friday-Grilled Cheese and soup

If I have a few minutes to myself, I will:::: NAP  (and yes I did)

New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::::  See Thursday!  Philly cheesesteak Sloppy Joes

One of my simple pleasures:::: coffee in a cute mug
Favorite photo from the camera or internet:::: I have two!

Beter late than never

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!

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

I will be sharing my thoughts today on Confidence and what that looks like according to my verse for the year which is Jeremiah  17:7-8 which says

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
    whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
    that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
    its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
    and never fails to bear fruit.”
