Happy May! Happy Homemaker Monday





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

The weather:::  Cold and dreary today!  It's going to thunderstorm too.  Hoping for a nice stormy evening to read! 


On my reading pile:::  Still with Gone with the Wind.  About 2/3 of the way through.  A few more weeks there.  I read a couple of books and now I am back to Kristen Hannah's "Firefly Lane".  Next up is probably The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivaid.

Bingeing Heartland on Netflix - started season 4
TONS of YouTube videos

BREAKFASTS:  I meal prepped a breakfast casserole (eggs, turkey bacon, spinach, diced potatoes, and topped with Havarti cheese)  and a few servings of oatmeal.

A few dishes to wash

*Emme is 17 and mostly an independent learner at this point.  In the evenings and on the weekends I go over all of her work with her, answer any questions she may have, and fill in where things may have been lacking.  During the weekends we do more in-depth learning together.  From kindergarten until 7th grade I was able to be at home with her*
