Happy Homemaker Monday

Hi Lovelies!

 It's Monday and that means it's only 4 days until the weekend! Today I have been cleaning out our closets and just having the time of my life (NOT)! It's time to link up with Sandy for Happy Homemaker Monday. So, here we go!

The weather:

As you can see from the graphic, we are supposed to get a rain/snow mix later today. We'll see if it actually happens. In case it does, we are prepared with extra water and food.

Right now I am:
I'm watching season 2 of Party of Five (great show and I highly recommend it) and season one of Downton Abbey (I'm loving this show)


How in the world does my house get so messy and cluttered when all I have is a husband and one kid. Every single room is  a mess and in need of some serious loving. Also, why do I have to clean the closets?

On my reading pile:

 I am still  reading Beaches and I'm enjoying it. I call this my "buffer" book as I am reading the newest Stephen King novel.


On my TV:

I'm almost done with season one of Downton Abbey and I'm watching season 2 of Party of Five

On the menu this week:

Monday- Manwiches/hamburgers and fries
Tuesday- spaghetti (red and white sauces) salad, garlic bread
Wednesday- smothered pork chops mashed potatoes, green beans
Thursday- chicken tenders, pasta, corn, cheddar biscuits
Friday- tacos, chips and salsa/cheese dip
Saturday- Roast, au gratin potaotes, green beans, and cheddar biscuits
Sunday- Beans and cornbread

On my to do list:
Clean the bathrooms
Clean the bedrooms
Clean the kitchen

Clean and organize the closets

 What I am creating:

Nothing at the moment. I'm waiting on some yarn and material that I ordered for some new projects that I plan to start on very soon.

Homemaking Tips:

I found these tips from Carolina Charm

Homemade cooking spray: 1 part olive oil and 4-5 parts water, in a misting bottle

Erase hard water stains with a lemon

Looking around the house:

My house needs some TLC. Every room is messy and cluttered. There are dishes in the sink and on the counter. It's just a mess.

 From the Camera:

On my prayer list:

My husband as he begins his studies for his Master's Degree in Computer Science and my In-Laws.

Bible verse/devotional: 

Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. (ESV) 
 Psalm 128:3



  1. I'm going to have to try the homemade cooking spray. I hate paying so much money for the canned ones.

  2. Your house sounds just like mine! And yet, here I sit. Reading blogs hahaha! :)

  3. Yummy menu :)

    Love your pom pom bookmark, it came out great :)
