HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY week 20 of 2017

I hope everyone had a wonderful mother’s day and was pampered by their families.  Mine was quiet, which is okay.  I got A LOT done and rested well too.

OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE

It’s been reasonably pleasant recently and looks like this week will stay the same with the potential of thunderstorms late week.  As long as the humidity doesn’t go crazy I can live with it.

ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE

Coffee and an English muffin.

AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE

I did a deep clean last Friday and Saturday so I’m pretty happy.

WEEKLY TO DO LIST & HOUSE PROJECTS

YAY the backyard is done as are all the heavy projects!!!!!!!

  • A couple doctor’s appointments
  • Some Ebaying.
  • Some laundry.
  • A few wood touch up projects.
  • Assemble some Christmas gifts.
  • Design Christmas cards.

CURRENTLY READING & TELEVISION / DVR

We are really getting into a summer schedule of nothingness and I’m searching more and more Netflix and amazon at night.  We did find IRON FIST on Netflix that we are really enjoying and just started Bosch on Amazon that might be okay – season 3 just started, but we’re binge watching 1 and 2 first.  I’m looking forward to America’s Got Talent coming back at the end of the month. We really enjoyed Nick Cannon as the host so interested in seeing how his being gone changes the dynamic of the show. I’ve also ben watching some old Father Dowling Mysteries. I loved Tom Bosley, Tracy Nelson and Mary Wickes.

I’m currently reading Ava Miles Dare River 5 book series. I’m on book 4, The Promise of Rainbows.

MENU PLANS FOR THE WEEK

This week I’m working on recreating and updating some of my grandmother’s recipes.  If they work I will be posting them along the way.  Unfortunately the age of the recipes and her chicken scratch writing have left some blank areas that I’m making assumptions to fill in those blanks. So, these are truly work in progress.

THINGS THAT ARE MAKING ME HAPPY

Sometime this week we should have a resolution to a problem that has been weighing heavily on our minds and life in general.  At that time I will FINALLY do the house update post and fill everyone in. It’s just a sad, sad situation.

Hey Sweetie!
Glad you had a nice quiet weekend. Sorry for whatever is troubling your hearts. Sending big prayers and look forward to more house post info.

Those Grandma recipes are the best, aren’t they? But I swear my Gram never measured anything so lots of guessing! Lol

Have a blessed week Tamy! xoxo

QuiltLady

LMBO nope grams never measured ANYTHING, but that is also how she taught me to cook so I’m hoping I come close! Thank you for the prayers, they sure have helped reassure me that everything will work out. We did finish the backyard while you were on blog break so am feeling a bit relieved at actual work to be done! Have a great week too.

Jean

I always love reading all your tips! Great photo, I’d want to be spending all my time right there. Glad you are very close to a resolution to your problem, hopefully, you’ll feel a bit lighter afterward no matter how it works out. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

QuiltLady

Thank you! I’m looking forward to having the shade cloth up as the afternoon sun is horrible, but I’m going to sit out there and read with a glass of wine VERY soon! You are so right also, EVERYTHING will feel lighter soon and the stress level will reduce greatly.

Ann

What a lovely image from your yard. It looks so peaceful there with the flowers and sun shining through the gate. The stuffed pork chops look delicious!

QuiltLady

Thank you, it is a peaceful area and I’m looking forward to spending more time there soon. Have a great week.
