Happy Homemaker Monday

Happy Monday! I am feeling pretty good today as I got a lot accomplished this past weekend. Of course there are bumps in the road, as Jacob is home from school today with a fever, but we can deal. One of the big things I did this weekend was clean out the boys' toys and I am researching chore charts for Rebecca and Jacob. I am tired of having to yell at them to stop arguing and clean up every night so thought that a chore chart may save my sanity. We shall see. I will share when I put them into place. 

Anyhow, now we are at Monday and I haven't participated in Sandra's "Happy Homemaker Monday" theme in a while, so I thought that is what I would do today....

The Weather outside is::::

It is currently sunny out. It is supposed to get up to 70 degrees today! YAHOO! Hopefully that means the last of the ice/snow will be gone by tonight.

On the breakfast plate this morning:::

I had 2 fried eggs, a sausage patty, and a large serving of cantaloupe, and water. 

As I look outside my window:::

I see sunshine and mud. LOL. I will take the mud because that means the snow has melted.

Right now I am :::

Typing up this post, coming up with a plan B for dinner as I am out of sour cream, and listening to the boys playing and waiting for the washer to stop. 

As I look around the house:::

The house is not in bad shape. I really decluttered the toys this weekend and this morning so it is pretty clean. I need to put dishes away from last night and clean around my desk (which is never ending). 

On today's to do list:::

Menu plan
Write at least 1 book review
1 load of laundry (washed, dried, folded and put away)
Work on chore charts for kids

Currently reading:::

Nothing right now. I have 4 books that I have finished that I need to review. Look for those review later this week! 

On the TV:::

I have 2 episodes of "Chasing Life" to watch to be caught up.
I also will be DVRing "Bringing Up Bates" and "19 Kids and Counting"    

On the menu this week:::

Italian sausage, baked beans and salad
chicken enchiladas and spanish rice and salad
spaghetti and meat sauce
fish, baked potatoes, mac and cheese and broccoli
cajun chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn

What am I creating at the moment:::

Chore charts for the kiddos

Favorite photo from the camera: 


Prayers, Inspirational quotes or devotionals:::

Praying for those who are sick both physically and mentally. 

Hope everyone has a great week!
