Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather ~  It was absolutely gorgeous a few days ago but this morning I woke up to drab, rainy, cold, dreary, and pretty much the typical March weather for around my area.

On my reading pile ~ I was reading some Louis L'Amour books, I read several books by Serene Miller, and have reread my favorite nutrition book for who knows how many times now.

Movies or shows I watched this weekend ~  My sister and I watched half of the first movie in the Hobbit series (it's quite a long movie) and we plan to watch the other half this weekend.

On my TV ~  My whole family has not been watching any television at all throughout the day and the only time the telly is on is when my Dad retires into the living room after dinner where he will half listen to baseball as he reads his favorite Louis L'Amour books or does office work.

On the menu for this week ~ My Mum has let me take over the dinner plans for us two since I'm in love with nutrition and she's willing to eat whatever I serve the two of us. My parents go shopping every Thursday so that's just as far as I planned out my menu for this week. Just so you know, I did plan out our breakfasts and lunches too, it's just that the typical thought of menu consists of dinners so that's what I'm listing. My Mum made a much more elaborate menu for everyone else and I'm pretty sure she had different kinds of pies listed on there but this is my little menu plan.

Monday-  Turkey Enchiladas with salad
Tuesday- Quinoa Risotta with broccoli
Wednesday-  Salad with a burger
Thursday-  Cheesy Broccoli soup

On my to-do list ~ Applique, crochet, plan out A-Z blog posts.

What I am sewing, knitting, crocheting, or creating ~ I am working on appliqueing a lap quilt, and want to start crocheting a poncho to wear on the mornings when I'm frozen.

Looking around the house ~ I see my family, and all the proof that they live here in this house.

From the camera ~ I baked s'mores cupcakes to take to my home school group on Saint Patrick's Day. I honestly don't get how they ever came up with the whole pinch whoever is not wearing green idea.. But I do know that a whole bunch of chasing and panicked running occurred that day.

What I'm wearing today ~ A blue Indian cotton skirt, a brown floral t-shirt, and a vintage charm bracelet.

One of my simple pleasures ~ Drinking a nice steaming cup of tea in the evenings with a good book as company.

Bible verse/ Devotional ~ I am part of a Bible mailbox club and I get sent three devotionals on average per month which I look forward to receiving very much, my devotional study for today is called "Dealing with Anger" I have a good few scriptures to study on the subject but their prominent one is James 1:19, 20  "...let every man be swift to hear,slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not righteousness of God." I also really like Ephesians 4:31-32

I was delighted to join the fun with Happy Homemaker Monday from this blog Happy Homemaker Monday. 


  1. Wow, those menus sound elaborate. The best meal I can make are Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches :)

  3. What a lovely post! Looking forward to your A to Z. Have a great week!

  4. Really enjoyed today's blog. I especially like your menu...wish I still lived next door so I could have a taste. The cupcakes look yummy and I agree with the pinching on St Patty's Day! Thanks for sharing...
