Happy Homemaker Monday September 3,2018

Fall has officially arrived at the Almond household last week! I put out the fall decorations and fired up the pumpkin spice scents in all of my candle warmers! So it seemed only fitting to have my blog match my house. Now if only the weather would get on board! Whether you still holding on to summer or dreaming of fall days.  Happy Labor Day, I hope everyone has had a wonderful long weekend! Ours has been busy to say the least. However the look on the little girls faces who joined us for tea last night at A Life Of Faith made it all worth it. 
I am pretty sure I have sent my body into a flare after pushing a little to hard last week. So I will be enjoying some nothingness on the couch today....
Today I am linking  up with Sandra at the Diary of a Stay Home Mom. 
If you would like to join in on the fun of Happy Homemaker Monday head on over and join in! Get to know some lovely ladies who have amazing blogs!

The weather....
I long for 70 degree days... Maybe by the end of the month ... A girl can dream lol!
Today will be filled with.....
Lots and lots of resting... Maybe some blog work other than this we  shall see. I have over done it and I have won some time on the couch.

On my reading pile....
Still Past forward... I don't want these books to end so I have tried not to read them so quickly.

Movies or Shows....
A friend recommended a show called the Paradise, I have fallen in love with it!

On the menu this week... 
Monday lasagna and a salad
Tuesday Salmon, herb rice, and broccoli
Wednesday Grilled Chicken , roasted red herb potato's, and green beans
Thursday Grilled Chicken salads
Friday Buffalo Shrimp Pasta

On My to Do List....
Monday Rest
Tuesday Put some stuff away from the tea party over the weekend and some light house work.
Wednesday Rheumatologist
Thursday - Saturday Just taking it day by day... My body needs some down time

In the Craft Basket....
Nothing at the moment, I need to go fabric shopping.

Looking around the house....
Over all its pretty tidy, I need to put away stuff brought home from the tea party. Other than tat its pretty well maintained.

From the camera...
                         Fall has arrived at the Almonds! This is the fire lace in the living room.

What am I wearing today...
Um if I am totally honest I am still in my pajama's! My hair is up in a messy bun and this will probably be the look for today.

One of my simple pleasures...
The days I get to spend pointing kids to Jesus...

Favorite Bible verse or quote for the week...
 On my prayer list...
My youngest is being sent to see a asthma and allergist. She has a cough we just can not get rid of.
Our ministry God is doing great things.
Me I got  my labs back for my lupus panel and some of the were very abnormal...
Our nation

In Closing...
I can not thank you enough for taking time to spend apart of your day with me ! I pray that you will stop back again and have a blessed week! ~Shellie


  1. Beautiful photos on your blog and I love your background. Perhaps it's just me but I simply cannot read the light orange font as it blends right into the lovely green background. (I can read the darker orange with no problem) Hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

    1. Thank you for pointing out the light color to me! I realized it after i went back to actually look at it on my blog! I fixed it if you would like to go back and read what you couldn't see ! I hope you to have a wonderful week!

  2. The Paradise was such a good show :) If you're ever looking for similar period drama shows, I have a ton on my sidebar, just look through the movies and series lists. ;)

    I too struggled with the font color against the green background, I had to highlight the text so I could read it. Just giving you a heads up in case you didn't realize that it would be hard to read :)

    I hope you have a really really good week, blessings!!!

    1. Thank You Sandra! I will check out your period dramas as they are my favorite to watch! I did not realize the font color was hard to see till I recently went back to look at the actual blog post! I fixed it! If you want to go back to read it! I hope you have a wonderful week!

  3. I really like the fall blog! I need to see pictures of your house all decorated for fall, I always LOVED your fall decor! You should share your decor ideas on your blog, because they are fantastic! Maybe you will have some freetime while you are here and can do some sewing lessons for a good friend and her daughter ;-) I love and miss you, and you had better rest some! Feel better, love you so much!

    1. Thank you my sweet friend! I will try to get around to taking some pictures of the rest of the house this week! I would love to give my sweet friends some sewing lessons! It would make my heart so happy! I love and miss you! thank you for your prayers

  4. Lovely fall colors! I too decorated for Fall but only have a few things, I think I'll have to work on that. Have a great week

  5. I've got my pumpkin spice going too! :D I have got to look up The Paradise - I've read about it three times today!

    Have a wonderful week

  6. Pumpkin Spice is my favorite fall fragrance!! I have to find out about this Paradise everyone is talking about. I think I'm the only person to not be watching. Hope you had a GREAT week.


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

Merry Christmas 2023

It is hard to imagine that 2023, has slipped away so quickly! I feel like I went to sleep one night, the year slipped away, and I woke up ha...
