Happy Homemaker Monday: February 12th

The weather::: 
It's currently in the 20's.  It's suppose to be in the upper 30's this afternoon and I hear the sun will make an appearance.  I don't know about you, but the sun does a ton for lifting my spirits.  I'm looking forward to some sunshine!

 Right now I am::: 
I'm browsing blogs and trying to wake up.  I have the Monday morning blues!  I plan to make oatmeal and hot tea when Megan wakes up.

 Thinking and pondering::: 
I'm pondering how to get my motivation back.  I've lost my giddy up and go.  I'm sure some of it has to do with the winter time lazies. *wink*

 On my reading pile::: 
Nothing at the moment.  I finished A Miracle of Hope by Ruth Reid Saturday evening.  I'll pull a new book off of my shelf this week.

 On my tv::: 
I don't turn on the TV much during the day.  Chuck will have it on this evening.

 Favorite blog post last week::: 
With Lot in the Gates of Sodom from Brenda @ Coffee, Tea, and Me.  I related to it on so many levels.  It reminded me of Romans 12:2.  It's not always easy being in the world, but not not of the world.

 On the menu for this week::: 
       Sunday:  Roasted Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans
       Monday: Pot Roast, Rolls
       Tuesday:  Chicken Pot Pie
       Wednesday: Lasagna, Salad, Garlic Bread
       Thursday:  Chicken Noodle Soup
       Friday:  Chili, Cornbread
       Saturday:  Grilled Chicken, Green Beans, Parmesan Noodles.

 On my to do list::: 
         *Dust living room
         *Make dough for rolls
         *Sew a curtain to cover a shelf in the office

 My simple pleasure::: 
        Enjoying a cup of tea.

 From the camera::: 
I purchased a new to do list.  I'm hopeful this will help motivate me as I do like to mark things off of a list.

 Prayer List:::
*Our country and it's leaders.
*My husband is in my prayers daily.
*I'm praying regarding our church situation.  We've been going to a new church and Chuck wants to keep attending.  I'm not sure as it's much larger than what we are use to.  (Two services with a weekly attendance of over 1100)  I'm following my husbands lead and praying that we'll both feel peace if this is meant to be our new church home.

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:6


  1. My giddy up has gone away too! Hoping that the sunshine here today helps. Your menu sounds super yummy! Hope you have a great week! :)

  2. It is so easy to lose your giddy up when it is cold outside.....:)

  3. We had bright sunshine here near St. Louis today. I felt so much better because of it. At 5 pm bright shafts of sunlight were still shining in, though that didn't last too much longer. A sure sign that spring cannot be too far away. Hopefully my giddy up will be coming back by the time spring gets here.

  4. Hi Wendi!
    The sun came out here today, and what a difference it made!
    Have a cozy evening, my friend. : )

  5. Sometimes a hot cup of tea really does make things better. I hope you find your giddy up here again soon. Take care my friend!


Thank you for visiting. I appreciate you taking the time to leave me a comment. I hope you enjoyed your visit and will return again!
