Happy Homemaker Monday

I am joining Sandra today over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for her Happy Homemaker Monday theme!

This weekend was VERY busy...Rebecca had softball practice on Friday night, then Saturday bright and early was softball opening day, where they introduce every girl by name in the league for every team. Then Jacob had a soccer game at noon, Rebecca had softball pictures at 1:10 and she had her first game at 2:00. That night, Bill took Rebecca to her school for a daddy/daughter date as the White Castle truck was in town and they were doing dinner and a movie. The boys and I stayed home and had McDonald's for dinner and just chilled. Yesterday we had church, then I spent the day doing laundry (10 loads!) and cleaning house. This week looks to be just as busy....

As I look outside my window:::
It is grey outside. We are supposed to have showers today with highs only in the 50s; Later this week we are supposed to have temperatures in the 80s.

Right now I am::: 
Typing out this post, thinking of the things I need to do today and this week.

Thinking and pondering:::
On what the rest of this month looks like. Thinking about what I need to do this week.

My simple pleasure:::
Being Mom

Looking around the house:::
The house is pretty clean after the clean up yesterday. I have lunch to make in a few minutes.
From the camera:::

I was gifted 2 dozen farm fresh eggs from one of the students at our school. His new project is raising chickens and selling the eggs. Well my mother bought 4 dozen and gifted us 2 dozen. I fried 2 this morning and they are so yummy. Much tastier than store bought. I have never had farm fresh eggs before; I was surprised by the different hues of the egg shells. Yum! 

Prayer List:::
For Bill, as he job searches. For things going on this week. For my mom's foot. For my sister and she is in her last month of high school. 

Bible verse, Devotional:::

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12 
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and a great Monday! 
What is going on in your area of the world? 


  1. I got my first 2 dozen farm fresh eggs for the first time in forever and can't wait to eat some. I've always preferred farm fresh to store bought. Your menu looks great for the week.

  2. We lived in a small village while I was growing up and my dad always kept chickens so we had fresh eggs daily. The taste of fresh eggs is so much better than after they've sat in the store for a month! Such a busy week - remember to take some time for YOU!

  3. I love fresh eggs, it's one of the reasons I get so excited when the Farmer's Market comes back in Spring.

    We also watch Agents of Shield and LOVE it.
