Happy Homemaker Monday (2/20/2017)

Happy Monday afternoon! The sun is shining here and it is warm outside! It is a good day! Today is President's Day and the kids had it off of school, so they have been home creating havoc here. As have the cats--- one decided to poop in several places in our living room and dining room this morning, and not in the litter box. Not a fun thing to wake up to. And both kids and cats have had a ton of rambunctious energy this morning/ and early afternoon. I have a mile long to do list today and I feel like I am getting none of it accomplished, but that is how life goes sometimes. I decided to sit down and type this out, before I head upstairs to attack the 3 loads of clothes that need folded and put away. So, for now, I will be joining in with the lovely Sandra over at "Diary of a Stay at Home Mom" in her Happy Homemaker Monday meme. So let's get started: 


THE WEATHER:::
Today the sun is out (YAY!) and it is gorgeous out! We have had temperatures in the 60s the last 3 days and it is supposed to be like that all week! I hope so because it is great to get outside!

ON MY READING PILE:::
Still haven't really gotten into reading anything yet. But I need to read my review book this week, so I will be reading In a Different Key....








ON MY TV:::

On Friday nights, we typically do pizza and a movie for the kids. This year I would like to try to remember what movies we have watched, so I will be recapping here. This past Friday night, we watched Lady and the Tramp (which I recently acquired cheaply through ebay). The kids liked the movie!





Now that the NFL season is over, we typically have on college basketball or the NBA. If Ben gets to choose, then it is Lego Star Wars. I also started watching Planet Earth II, which premiered this weekend.



ON THE MENU FOR THIS WEEK:::
MONDAY: ham slices, augratin potatoes, green beans
TUESDAY:
WEDNESDAY:
THURSDAY:
FRIDAY:

I have no idea what I am making this week. I have a mile long to do list today and that is on my list. This warmer weather has made me want to make some different things.

Tuesday: kids to school, Aldi's grocery store

LOOKING AROUND THE HOUSE:::
It isn't too bad. There are toys out (both cat and kid toys!), but it isn't too bad.
  

FROM THE CAMERA:::
We took the kids to the park yesterday to run around, throw rocks in the lakes and see the geese. At one point, Ben wouldn't get down from a rock, so I had him climb on my back and we walked around with me giving him a piggy back ride!




WHAT I'M WEARING TODAY:::
I have on jeans, a green/brown/and white floral short-sleeved shirt and tan flats. The weather is too warm to wear a sweater and boots!
 
SIMPLE PLEASURE:::
Spending time outside with my kids and hubby. 


DEVOTIONAL OR QUOTE:::



So there you have it. A little peek into my life on this beautiful Monday afternoon. Hope everyone has had a great day and let's see what this week will bring!

  1. Hope your cats are behaving better today! Some cats don't like to share a litter box, just a thought. The weather has been great here as well. Hope you get lots of chances to get out and enjoy it this week!
