Happy Homemaker Monday Sept.16,2019

There is something truly beautiful about the sound of a quiet creaking house.
I woke up much earlier this morning than normal. I laid in the bed and just listened for awhile. Finally my feet began to hit the cool floor and begin my morning routine.My house is still silent filled with the smells a smells of coffee.
I am so thankful for these moments for me they are few and far and in between so I cherish them. I have to be honest I used to take so many things for granted. Now I find myself not wanting to miss a thing! I want to enjoy quiet and noise. The company of my family and the joy of being alone for awhile!
God woke me up this morning! I feel okay for me and I am so very thankful I do!

Today  I am Joining up with Sandra for Happy Homemaker Monday! Want to join in on the fun follow the link: Happy Homemaker Monday

I am so ready for fall. The 90 degree heat has been awful! So I have to say how excited I am to 70's and 80's!
Monday- 91 sunny
Tuesday- 89 partly cloudy
Wednesday- 79 cloudy
Thursday- 77 sunny
Friday- 80 sunny
Saturday- 85 sunny
Sunday- 89 sunny

On my reading pile-
Besides my devotionals nothing at the moment! 

On my t.v-
Honestly nothing impressive at the moment! I am excited for the fall line up to start though. I have missed the Good Dr and Amsterdam. I am in desperate search for new period shows!

On the menu this week-

Monday- Salt pepper pork chops, mashed red potatoes, and green beans.

Tuesday- Dinner with my oldest daughter

Wednesday- Baked blackened salmon, black beans, and broccoli.

The rest of the week is unsure! I will have a house full of girls! They are coming to help with a A Life of Faith Girls event.

On my to do list-
Go through the the kitchen cabinets
Scald butter churn and molds for the event
Tidy the house
I have several lung test this week
Enjoy life 

What am I sewing or creating-
I will be working on prairie style skirts we are participating in a historical festival Saturday! I am so excited.

Looking around the house-
The kitchen is a mess! For my birthday I asked for the kitchen cabinets time to be painted and it's become a process.
The rest of the house just needs to be dusted and picked up a little. It's not going to matter much I am about to have fabric everywhere lol.

From the camera: 
Its been a tradition since we our homeschool days to put fall decoration out on labor day! 

I didn't go as big this year! Just the kitchen and the living room! I want to enjoy them not be in my bed for weeks for over doing it!

I just have to share my new cool super hero mask! At least my kids at church call it that! This is suppose to prevent me from catching everyone's germs this fall and winter! NC has already had flu cases!

On prayer list:
My health I got some not so great blood work back this time. Also there is concern for my lungs again so I will be going through some test to see what's going on. My hubby launched his first ever book yesterday! Please pray God uses it to touch many lives. Our nation it's a mess! For my chosen family who is in a time of transition and will soon be taking a new church!

Devotional for the day-to-day
