Happy Homemaker Monday - 09/15/2014

Well, it's Monday again. They always come way to fast, and I never quite adjust to how fast the weekends fly by. lol
I hope everyone is having a good Monday. Mine started out rocky, but is going okay for now. Hopefully it continues.
I know I'm getting started on this a bit late, but my whole morning has been a bit behind and I have been battling an annoying headache today.

::Breakfast time - what is on the plate this morning::
I had a glass of milk and some toast with cream cheese. 

::Looking around the house::
My little one is watching Blue's Clue's getting ready for his afternoon nap. The kitchen needs tidying up, my counters look horrid right now. People have placed papers and stuff just wherever on them. The living room needs vacuumed and a quick pick up. Bedrooms need vacuumed. Laundry needs ironed and put away. Daily cleaning of bathrooms needs done. (I have two boys so cleaning the bathrooms every day is a necessity in our household lol)

::On today's to do list::
Iron, fold, and put away clothes. No washing today thankfully.
Cleaning - kitchen, living room, bedrooms and bathrooms.
Cooking - dinner is all that's left to cook for now, lunch and breakfast is already done.

::Currently reading::
nothing at the moment

::On the TV today::
I honestly cannot think of anything that is on today. I haven't had a whole lot of time lately to catch up on any of my missed or favorite shows and I haven't really missed it all that much. I may just watch the nightly news, and that's it today. Unless of course my husband has a show that comes on and I forgot about. Then I'll watch that with him.

::The weather outside is::
67 degrees. It's sunny but not too hot. There's a bit of a breeze going, and it's a beautiful day really. I'm getting ready to pop open all my windows and let that fresh air and sunshine go through the house. I love this time of year when it's not too hot, not too cold, and the fresh air is just comforting.

::On the menu this week::
Hubby's hours have been cut at his work so our budget isn't very friendly, and won't be for awhile. We will have what we need but I won't have a lot of extra to work with and you may see some repeats of some meals from a week prior or so for awhile.

Monday- Spaghetti and garlic bread
Tuesday- Cheeseburger Macaroni, mashed potatoes, corn
Wednesday- Baked chicken, rice, broccoli
Thursday- shopping day
Friday- see above

::If I have a few minutes to myself, I will::
Read and visit some blogs

::New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::
I would like to try a new chicken casserole recipe. Lately I am all about casserole dishes, and crock-pot meals. I have been extremely tired lately so maybe that is why. LOL Stuff that is easy, cheap, but yummy.

::One of my simple pleasures::
Watching house hunters, and love it or list it. I like seeing people search for new homes, seeing what they are like after they have put their personal touches on things. I also like seeing old houses fixed up into something new and beautiful.

::Favorite photo from the camera::
Nothing this week

::Visiting with Blog friends (blog you want to share, blog post that caught your eye)::
No blog visiting this week other than Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. I just haven't had much time to really stop and chat sadly. Hopefully I can do so this week though. :)

::Praying for::
Finances, friends, family, ourselves.

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


  1. I love Blues Clues, and I miss it when my kids would watch it :)

    I am right there with you on the budget, this month has been awful for us and so my menu has been very easy meals.

    Hope you're having a good week.
