HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY week 41 of 2018

GOOD MORNING dear friends. Can you believe we’re into the final quarter of 2018 with the holidays looming on us?  I notice it so much more this time of year with the Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas displays taking over EVERY store! We have another quick trip coming up before we settle in for the winter and start our serious research on where to make a final settlement.

I got caught up on laundry and changing out the spring/summer clothes for the fall/winter clothes.  We watched some football (Rams & Chiefs are both still undefeated), NASCAR racing and helped my mom with some garage sale pricing, but all in all it was an uneventful weekend! 

Be sure to link up with
Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for Happy homemaker Monday

and with Laura at I’m an Organizing Junkie for Menu Plan Monday.

OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE & WHAT I’M WEARING – I’m in Heaven! It’s still in the 50’s again this morning and we’re supposed to be in the mid 60-s to 70’s ALL this week with a touch of rain here and there. I’m wearing Levis, a blue embroidered long sleeved tee and my favorite flannel shirt.

ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE – Breakfast is atill kind of boring so I’m going to start experimenting a little bit soon I hope.  As for today, it’s blueberry green tea and black cherry yogurt.

FAVORITE PHOTO FROM THE CAMERA – I’m still working on the photos from our trip here, but this was probably my favorite beach area that we stopped at.INSPIRATION AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE / WEEKLY TO DO LIST & HOUSE PROJECTS /  APPOINTMENTS
