HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY

We had a fairly productive, yet lazy weekend here.  Sunday was the lazy part with A LOT of NASCAR since the races were both postponed due to Hurricane Matthew and Sunday being our big football day anyway.  The evenings have finally cooled off so we can enjoy the outside a bit.

OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE
The breeze is blowing and the temperature is absolutely beautiful this morning.  Our days are still heating up to the low 80’s, but the evenings are FINALLY cooling down into the 50’s and 60’s so it all equals out better and the humidity is finally MUCH lower so the little bit of heat is really tolerable.

ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE
Waffles and coffee.

AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE
I see a HUGE mess! LOL it’s a GOOD mess though as I continue sorting and preparing Carlie’s room.  This week is the BIG craft room purge and looking for good homes for all the parts I no longer need.

WEEKLY TO DO LIST & HOUSE PROJECTS

  • Pick up the tub enclosure and get it installed for Carlie’s bathroom.
  • Sort craft room 1 last time and organize new rolling tool box.
  • Drop off the 2 HUGE boxes of Hallmark ornaments at the Children’s Hospital. 
  • Buy new fabric storage boxes for quilting material.
  • Paint Carlie’s closet.  While we got the rooms painted, we did not do the closets right off, but the time has come to do just that.
  • Laundry and Cleaning.

SUCCESSFUL RECIPES and their links FROM LAST WEEK

ON MY MIND
Praying for ALL of those affected by Hurricane Matthew.  There are so many countries and communities fighting just to restore basic needs, Haiti in particular.

We are never ALL going to agree about EVERYTHING, but am thinking we should ALL be nicer to each other – especially in this politically charged presidential election season.  So many people seem to be adamant on serious battle lines being drawn and everything being black and white ONLY.  I hate to break it to everyone, but life is rarely black and white.  Learning to compromise and live in the gray area of intersected commonalities is probably the best we can do this season.  But seriously, BE KIND to each other no matter what your personal views are.  The other person’s views are just as important to them.

THINGS THAT ARE MAKING ME HAPPY

  • LOL that the election is almost here and hopefully things will settle down a bit for everyone when it’s finally over.
  • Progress on the house and the cooler weather so we can begin to work on the outside.

Good Morning, I totally agree BE KIND! one of my favorite quotes and something I always tell my children to never forget is…" Its Nice to be Important but more Important to be Nice." I like your TV list. I just Binged watched the latest season of Longmire, Love that show! The Good Place sounds interesting. Have a great week.

Yes, we all need to remember that we all have different opinions and that doesn't mean another person isn't worthy of our kindness and respect. Looks like the election campaign will get messier before it is over. I live in Australia and it is still all that is on the news!

Hi Tamy! So happy to hear you're finally getting more of that Fall weather – and some down time too. 😉

I've been watching several of the new shows too and like The Good Place and This is Us – but what do you think of designated survivor? I meant to watch that one and haven't. Do you like it? Worth watching?

I so agree with you about being kind to each other – especially in this terrible political climate right now! I can't wait until this election is over. I'm so tired of hearing about it already.

Blessings on the rest of your week my dear Gal!! xoxo

I think productive yet lazy weekends are the best kind! We must be on the same wavelength this morning, I was just posting over on my blog about how tired I was of this election nastiness and how ready I was for it to be done (you said it much better, by the way). Hope you have a wonderful week!
