Happy Homemaker Monday March 11,2019

Image result for happy homemaker monday

If you read my last entry you know I have been on a social media fast for Lent! I have to say I don't think I realized how much of my time it actually took! I believe when Lent is over, there will be major changes on how much time it gets!
My body still has a mind of it's own and makes life less than easy at times. My home had been hit with the flu and we finally recovered from that then bam I was hit with something else.
Prayerfully I am on the back end of whatever this is.
Its been awhile since I have linked up with Sandra over at a Diary of A Stay At Home Mom! I am excited to be linking up with Happy Homemaker! If you decide to join in on the fun follow the link below:

The Weather~
Monday 71
Tuesday 66
Wednesday 64
Thursday 69
Friday 72
Saturday 65

My heart is ready for spring! I have been daydreaming of warm days and starting a herb garden this year! We have had so much rain! My yard is like walking in a swamp. So thankful to see lots of sunshine and warm weather this week! We have a chance of rain later in the week. I hope it changes its mind and doesn't!

Right Now~
I just finished up some cereal. Still sipping on coffee as I set at the kitchen table working on this post. I love how the sun shines through my lace curtains in the living room!
It whispers the promise of spring! 

My thoughts are all over the place right now! I have so much I want to do! So little energy. I was approved for Benlysta injections at home for my Lupus. I had my first shot last Tuesday! I have not felt well since! I pray that it was just a fluke and my body was still trying to recover from the flu and pneumonia. Praying tomorrows shot goes well and little if any side effects. I have decided that I need to set weekly goals for myself. In hopes to accomplish things I want done! 
I know I will have to be realistic. I think it  may help with the fact I am still unable to drive. If I keep myself semi busy I won't miss some of the things I have lost along the way so badly.

On My Reading Pile~
Nothing at this very moment... I hope a trip to the local bookstore will soon remedy that.

On My T.V~

Looking Around the House~
Honestly it needs a good cleaning! There has been so much sickness! Its been disinfected... Just not kept picked up the way I like it be! My youngest helps me beyond imagination! She has had some other things she wanted to take care of last week. I miss being able to be the homemaker I once was. I know things change... I am still trying too adjust to the new normal with joy.

On The Menu~
Monday~ Rice a Roni, fried taters and onion, and pintos
Tuesday~ Pork Chops. baked potatoes, broccoli
Wednesday~ Bang Bang Shrimp wraps and fries
Thursday~ Fried Chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans
Friday~ Grilled Chicken breast, corn on the cob, broccoli

In the Craft Basket~
Before I got so sick I dug out some spring skirt patterns to sew! I pray that I can begin working on them. I was asked to try my hand at making American Girl doll food from air dry clay! I have it created its waiting to be painted! Maybe next week I will have pictures of one or the other.

One of my simple pleasures~
Spending time being creative! Its always been one of my most favorite things to do!

Favorite Bible verse for the week~
On My Prayer List~
Please help me pray my body will respond well to the Lupus meds with out the horrible side effects. Praying for our nation... We need God back in every aspect of our country.
Also help me pray for a very dear friend and their ministry!

In Closing~
Thank you so much for stopping by today and sharing a moment of your day with me! I pray that each of you have a blessed and wonderful week!


  1. My cousin's daughter was just diagnosed with Lupus too, she is just 16, I'm hoping they find medications without side-effect for you, her, and all that have that disease.
    Hoping you feel better and can get a 'normal' week - a good one!

  2. So sorry you ahve been spo under the weather... exercising your creativity shall surely help lift your spirit and improve your outlook while you wait for improvements in the body! Praying your new normal will get better and better in the coming days!!

  3. I took a break off social media, mainly Facebook, over a month ago. I thought it would be hard because I was so used to going on there every spare second I had....funny enough, I don't miss it ONE bit and I've decided I'm not going back. It's been truly liberating.

    Hope you have a great week and that you feel better :)

  4. Your weather sounds wonderful! I think MOST of us are praying for spring to get here and be a wonderful change from this horrific winter. SO glad you're recovering from the flu and it hasn't lingered. Prayers that you get your Lupus under control - I know that was the biggest blessing in my life when I found what worked for me and life returned to somewhat normal. Feel better and have a GREAT week.

  5. It sounds like you have a lot of fun craft projects going on, I can't wait to see pictures of the food, sounds super cute!

  6. There are that I need to take a social media fast/break... after some stuff today I may just have to do it sooner rather than later. Have a great week!

  7. Hope you start to feel better very soon. Praying your new medicine does the trick to help you. Love your bible verse for the week. Hope the rest of your week is amazing.


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