Happy Homemaker Monday June 22, 2015





The weather outside is::::
Today is in the 80s and muggy.  I <3 Michigan, but I do not love the humidity :/ 

On the breakfast plate this morning::::
For breakfast today dare I say I ate beefaroni for breakfast? Yikes.

As I look outside my window:::
Outside everything is nice and green.  I saw a pretty cardinal on my laundry line yesterday, it was so pretty :)

Right now I am::::
The kids and I are at my mom's house right now!  We are going to have a bbq - steak and veggies.  

As I look around the house::::
Well, we are at my mom's house - so there is vintage-inspired floral wallpaper in the living room, white and blue kitchen, lavender mini-wreaths hanging on a cherry armoire in the dining room, floral plates on the wall and my family gathered around. 
On today's to do list::::

Most of it is already done!  Shopping for Jennah's birthday!  She will be 19 tomorrow!

Still binge-watching Alphas on Netflix.  Almost done and I have no idea what to watch next!  Hawaii 5-0? Scandal?  Blue Bloods? Any suggestions?

In our homeschool:

Emily has been sick most of the week; cough, headache, runny nose and sore throat.  She's done minimal schooling.  I printed off a bunch of stuff this week for history and biology, so hopefully she'll be able to catch up this week and get to the more fun stuff! 


Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::
Proverbs 1: 7-9

Fearing the Lord is the beginning of moral knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Listen, my child, to the instruction from your father,
and do not forsake the teaching from your mother.
For they will be like an elegant garland on your head,
and like pendants around your neck.

  1. I love a good dystopian novel, may have to check out the one you are reading. Of the Netflix shows you listed, I'd pick Hawaii 5-0 although my taste runs a bit different and I'm still binge watching (slowly) Burn Notice. If you like dystopian television as well as books, I'd suggest Jericho if you haven't already seen it. Hope you have a wonderful week!
