HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY week 8 of 2017

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, or still is as since it’s a 3 day weekend for President’s Day.  Saturday we finished the clean up from last week’s tornado like storm damage that left us with a MAJOR roof leak into the attic and down into the laundry room as well as a window seal that failed causing a small river flowing into the atrium.  Now we are ready for the current storm that started last night and just praying that all the repairs are complete enough. Yesterday we took it easy and watched the NASCAR Clash (YAY racing season has begun!), a few new movies and just relaxed.

HOMEMAKING/COOKING TIP

ON MY MIND

Praying that people in general become less self absorbed and start paying attention to those around them. Living in a bigger city again has reminded me that many people tend to make things WAY MORE complicated and involved than they need to in an effort to be in control of things, situations or others.  Seriously, give me the country life again! And don’t even get me started on “social” media LOL

Thank you Carrie, I never thought I’d have the patience for quilting either. Then, I took a class will hubby was deployed and it became a passion. I especially love the color combos and pattern choosing.

Hope it doesn’t get too cold and snowy again. I know how those false springs can be a let down when winter rears it’s ugly head again.

Have a great week.

Hi Hon! Playing catch up.

Hope you get some sunshine soon! Our mild temps for here have been awesome – but looks like they’re going away for a while. Boo.

That quilt looks incredible!! Great job Lady. I don’t think I’d ever have the patience to do something like that. It’s truly beautiful. 😉

LOve your inspiration too! Don’t be working too hard. Blessings. xoxo

That quilt is beautiful! Interesting tip, I’m pretty sure my Betty Crocker cookbook says to start corn in cold water. I’ll have to try it in already boiling water and see if the boys notice any difference. Hope you have a wonderful week!

Pamela

Beautiful quilt! On My Mind really hit a nerve with me today – we’ve lived in a lot of different places during our Navy adventures and it is surprising how the people in different parts of the country, for the most part, fall into a similar type of behavior. We are really longing to return to Washington – the people there were different, good different, and we miss it. Have a great week!

QuiltLady

Thanks Pamela. I think with us both being military families we have many of the same beliefs and thoughts on that. We too are longing to return to the Pacific NorthWest sooner than later. Have a great week too.

That’s interesting about when to boil vegetables. I didn’t know that rule, yet somehow have been following it when I cook. Will be helpful to keep in mind when trying new vegetables. Looks like a lot of the recipes you tried last week turned out. That’s always good to find new ones. Your quilt turned out beautifully.
