Happy Homemaker Monday 04/17/2017

Good afternoon all, hope you all had a great Easter weekend and are ready for the week ahead.

I had a fun weekend, but a busy one. We had a lot of family over off and on all weekend and we also hosted Easter Dinner for the family.
While I love having family over and doing giant get togethers I'm exhausted. Haha

So without further ado let's dive in shall we?

::The weather::
Getting more spring like weather finally. Warm jacket weather and some days no jacket needed. Rain and sunshine off and on. This week temps will h in the 70s mostly with some days in the 60s and one day in the 50s.

::On my reading pile::
I am still reading Girl In Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow. With the holidays and everything I haven't got much time to read, but I expect to finish it sometime this week. I will be posting a review of it as soon as I am finished.

::Movies or Shows I watched this weekend::

I actually didn't get to watch anything as far as movies or shows. I watched a vlog or two but other than that it has just been too hectic.

::On my TV::
Oak Island with hubby
Catch up on missed episodes of Jane the Virgin
Catch up on some vlogs

::On my to do list::
Monday - Laundry, general tidying up around the house today to straighten back up after the holidays.

Tuesday - going through stuff and spring cleaning

Wednesday - going out of town for the morning and afternoon. Also have to Make new meal plan and grocery list most which will probably be done on the road. Doggy bath day as well for Gizmo.

Thursday - 2 doctor appointments and grocery shopping this day. Yikes.

Friday - Game Night with the kiddos

Saturday- Deep cleaning my car. Movie Night with the kiddos.

::What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating::
Nothing creative this week or next although I probably will try to get some adult coloring time in.

::Looking around the house::
Mostly everything looks fine. I have been doing stuff here and there throughout the day. My youngest is taking a nap as I type this post, and  there are some dishes in the sink that needs washed from our lunch.

::What I'm wearing today::

Black Jeggings and a coral long comfy t-shirt I usually wear when I will just be around the house doing chores.

::One of my simple pleasures::

Taking a walk! This is something I should do more of, but I love just taking a walk without having a tight time limit and just gazing around. Taking a look around at even the littlest things like flowers blooming or birds in trees can be so rewarding. It is honestly good for the soul. I always feel better after taking a walk and taking a walk with your kids is even better as they usually point out stuff to you that you may not have even seen before.

::Bible verse, Devotional::

  1. It seems that Leftovers was a common theme for Monday night's dinner!

  2. I know what you mean about loving to host a get-together and then being exhausted afterward! Hope you have a great week.

  3. Sounds like you have been and will continue to be busy, I hope you catch up and get some "me time" in soon. Your menu sounds delicious! Have a great week.

  4. Think many of us had leftovers, always happens with the holidays :)

    I watch Oak Island too, it's pretty neat, do you like it?

    Have a wonderful week :)
