Happy Home Maker Monday October 2,2017

Its been such awhile since I last posted for Happy Homemaker Monday, I feel like a school girl on her first day of class! I did not realize how much I have missed blogging... Before I get started I want to send my thoughts and prayers out to those who were involved and effected in any manner in Vegas! My heart breaks for them ...

This Morning ~ I have had a quite morning .... I have been trying to urge myself to find some kind of new normal and be okay with the challenges my health brings daily... As always though every morning starts with a cup of coffee! It would not be complete with out pumpkin spice creamer!

Looking Around the House~ For the most part everything is neat and orderly. My youngest and I cleaned on Saturday ... So there isn't much at all to do today.

On Today's To Do List~ I truly need to go ahead and get everything in order for homeschool later this week. I hope to make it outside and do some flower bed cleaning so I can decorate for fall later this week. 

Currently Reading~ Nothing at all for the moment... The mood has not yet hit for a new book to read ... the cooler weather will hopefully bring that upon soon. Instead of reading at night we have been playing family games! I have truly enjoyed it!

On the T.V~ I have fallen head over hills for Poldark! 
I just finished Turn on Netflix and can not wait for it to start on t.v again. Many of our favorite shows are starting back, I am excited! our family loves watching Criminal Minds, Mcgyver , and Designated Survivor together ! My daughter and I are anxiously awaiting the new ONCE. 

The Weather Outside~ It is truly a beautiful fall day, the sun is shining and the its in the low 70's! I just wish it would last... I think it is suppose to be in the upper 80's by the end of the week. I will be happy when the fall weather stays!

On the Menu~

Monday~ Shrimp and Grits

Tuesday~Creamy Tortellini and Italian Sausage

Wednesday~ Grilled Chicken Breast , Broccoli , and Roasted Potatoes  

Thursday~ Beef Mexi Melts

Friday~ Pizza

If I have a few minutes I will~ knit or sew... I have been knitting handmade dish cloths and I would love to start sewing again!

One Of my simple pleasures~ Setting outside in the evening drinking coffee and sharing how our days have went with my family.

A new recipe I have tried or want to try this week~ A old fashioned apple cake, I hope to make it later today.

Favorite photo from camera or internet this week~ 
                                        A personal favorite from my Etsy shop
                                       My heart is so happy fall has arrived !

Praying For~ Our nation, for the Dr's to finally give answers, for some special friends who have just ventured into full time ministry this summer! My mom is expecting some test results this week. of course Vegas!

Bible Verse for the Week~
                                                      "The Lord will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest." Psalm 85:12
Praying everyone has a blessed week this week!


  1. My mom used to make an apple cake every fall that was one of my favorites. I don't make it usually any more because I'm the only fan and a whole cake to myself is not such a good idea. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

  2. I enjoyed reading this post. Like you, I greatly enjoy pumpkin spice coffee creamer...except I use mine in tea, not coffee...and, also like you, my heart is happy that fall has arrived. Autumn is definitely my favorite season and it is during autumn that all my senses come alive! Will be praying over you and your family and all the other request that you have listed. Have a great week ahead! <3

  3. So glad to see you back to writing sweet friend. Not sure how you are going to make the Apple cake, but we love the way it was passed down to me, It's called a Apple Stack Cake. Hope you enjoy yours. Autumn is my favorite tome of the year, cooler weather and all the colors and the crispness, the harvesting of whats left in the garden, I just love Autumn. Pumpkins Spice is also a favorite, in lots of things not just coffee. Praying for you to get back to doing the things you love to do. Take care and much love sis.

  4. Love Turn and Poldark! Sending prayers for your health issues.

    1. Thank you so much !!! I am so glad I’m not the only one who loves historical based shows!

  5. Turn and Poldark are so good :) I actually need to update my Period Drama list on the blog because there are quite a few that I've been enjoying lately.

    Sending you prayers for your health issues and hoping you start feeling better.

    Have a wonderful week.

    1. I was so excited to see your updated Period Drama list this morning!More often than I like I am stuck on the couch. I have watched and rewatched some series!The new list opened up a whole new list for me to check out! Thank you for your prayers I appreciate them very much! I see a new rheumatologist next Tuesday. Praying this holds the answer we are praying for.
      Hope you have a blessed week.

  6. I LOVE your simple pleasure - nothing better than a good cup of coffee and surrounding yourself with family. I'll keep you in my prayers for good news from the doctors, I'm going through a similar situation so know how hard it is to wait for answers. Have a GREAT week.

    1. Tammy I am so sorry to hear your battling health issues! I will be praying for you as well! I know the frustrations of not getting answers...
      Praying you have a blessed week!


I love to hear from you! Take time to say hello and let me know what you thought!
