Happy Homemaker Monday (3-13-17)

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine was good. I did a few things around the house, took a load of crap stuff to Goodwill, took a nap both Saturday and Sunday, and just lived simply. It was a pretty uneventful weekend, which was a nice change of pace.

For today, 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 it is really cold out and it is supposed to start snowing later. We are under a winter weather advisory from 5pm today until Wednesday night. Supposedly we are supposed to get 4-7 inches of snow. I will believe it when I see it.

ON MY READING PILE:::
Still reading "Wonder"


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 Moana. Rebecca and Jacob had seen it in the theater with my dad. I thought it was good- kind of a cross between Hercules and Pocohantas with a Polynesian twist. We actually ended up watching it both Friday and Saturday night, when my sister came over to watch it with the kiddos.






ON THE MENU FOR THIS WEEK:::
MONDAY: pulled pork sandwiches, corn, carrots, salad
TUESDAY: chili, grilled cheese
WEDNESDAY: hamburger helper and peas (leftovers for me)
THURSDAY: ????
FRIDAY: pizza maybe
SATURDAY: spaghetti with meat sauce
SUNDAY: chicken drumsticks, augratin potatoes, green beans


ON MY TO-DO LIST FOR THIS WEEK:::
Monday: Go to the grocery store, Jacob has a doctor appointment, Ben speech and OT, tutor, trash and recycling to curb
Tuesday: kids to school
Wednesday: kids to school, tutor
Thursday: Cleveland
Friday: Canton
Saturday:
Sunday: PSR, church
And each day has the daily housework that needs to be done.

LOOKING AROUND THE HOUSE:::
It doesn't look too bad in the downstairs. There are a few things out, but that is just our life right now. Upstairs is a different story; our room is clean. Rebecca's room is decent (for a 10 year old). The boys' room is a disaster! I just sent Benjamin upstairs to start cleaning it. I will join him in a few minutes to help.


FROM THE CAMERA:::



WHAT I'M WEARING TODAY:::
Jeans, brown boots and a dark pink sweater
 
SIMPLE PLEASURE:::
Making travel plans for the family and trying to come up with fun things to do with our family. I love the planning part!

DEVOTIONAL OR QUOTE:::



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

  3. I love your quote this week. Oh, I always get caught up in the planning part of trips as well. So much fun. Hopefully, you won't get too much snow. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  4. I wish we were only getting four to seven inches! We are under a BLIZZARD WARNING with accumulation maps predicting fifteen to twenty five inches of snow starting tomorrow into early Wednesday morning! Prepping the best I can at home in case of power outage - washing clothes, baking, going to the library for books for the family to chose from. =)

  5. Yesterday was the first day in about a month that I have needed a sweater and I was complaining about it. Thank you for putting it in perspective for me. We have not had more than a couple of days below freezing all winter, and even with the heat off it is still warm enough in the house to wear flip flops. A cold front is relative!

  6. I love planning trips as well. Haven't been able to go anywhere for a long time so I'm hoping this year we can get away even if for a few days.

    Your menu sounds yummy as always. This weather is insane, I'm so sick of the flip flopping from cold to hot to snow.

  7. Oh Chili and grilled cheese sound so good to me right now as I am sick. I think I will try to work into menu or suggest to hubby who's been taking care of dinner these last few days. have a great week!
