Happy Homemaker Monday April 3rd, 2017

Welcome to this week's Happy Homemaker Monday.  I am linking up with Sandra at Diary of a SAHM.  

Happy April!  It's my favorite month of the year - it could be due to the fact it's my birthday month.  I did do HHM last week, but I forgot to link up!  

The weather:::  We had a very pretty weekend, near 60 and sunny.  However, this week is going to be very typical for the Detroit area in the spring - rain, rain, rain! 

On my reading pile:::  I just finished reading two cute, mail-order bride books. When I'm sort of reading slowly and need a diversion, I generally fall back on that type of book.  What's next?  I'm starting Pricilla Shirer's "Life Interrupted" 

also going to try the Appomattox Saga 

Movies or Shows I watched this weekend::: Still binge-watching Dance Moms.  I did catch up on Grey's Anatomy and Chicago Fire. 

On my TV:::
More Dance Moms (I need to finish!) 
Going to catch up on my favorite YouTube vlogs 

On the menu for this week:::
MONDAY:  Irish chicken, cabbage, and potatoes (did not make last week) 
TUESDAY:  Beef Stroganoff with steamed vegetables 

SATURDAY: Family dinner at my dad's 
SUNDAY: Breaded pork chops, baked potatoes, green beans 

On my to do list:::
Clean out car
Bible study 

What I am crafting or creating:::  Still working in my planners 

Happening this week:::
Bible study in my War Binder 

Looking around the house:::

I got a lot done over the weekend, but the house needs a HUGE spring clean!  

From the camera::: A corner of one of my bookshelves.  

What I'm wearing today:::
I'm doing this Sunday night - so I'm in my pj's! 

One of my simple pleasures:::
Decorating my planners with washi tape, colored pens, and stickers!  It's an addiction. 

Bible verse, Devotional:::
