Welcome to Happy Homemaker Monday! Please join the fun by visiting Sandra’s blog, Diary of a Stay-at-Home Mom.
THE WEATHER OUTSIDE: It is cloudy, damp and chilly. :/
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING: I made ham and cheese omelets!
AS I LOOK OUT MY WINDOW: Gray. Gloomy. But the birds are chirping and that makes me hopeful! Also, my neighbor has some gorgeous tulips out front – so those are nice.
RIGHT NOW I AM: I’m writing this on Sunday, so I am doing a little bit of everything. I have red beans cooking on the stove top, chicken with gravy in the Crockpot and just finished making ham and eggs. Cooking ahead for the week is HUGE in my life. If I don’t, then I’m stopping at fast food or scrounging something up last minute.
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE: I have floors to sweep and mop, dishes to finish and books to read!
TODAY’S TO DO LIST: As above – sweeping and mopping! Laundry. I need to fill the bird feeders and fill the bird bath – not sure about that it is sort of cold. Brush Cat. Work on my Bible studies. Homeschool homework. Reading.
READING: I just finished “The Midwife’s Dilemma” by Delia Parr. You can see my review HERE. I’m also about 1/3 of the way through Dee Henderson’s “Traces of Guilt” – and it is awesome. Also still working on “Rhinestone Jesus” by Kristen Welch.
