Happy Homemaker Monday for August 20th, 2018

I am linking up with Sandra from Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for Happy Homemaker Monday

Please let me know if you can see my pictures this week!  I am not sure what happened in my last post.  I am technically challenged! Also, I just started a brand new weekly post called "The Monday Book Report" - I'll talk about everything I've read, plan to read, and exciting bookish things happening around the world and the web.

The weather..... Although the weather is "perfect"  (80s and sunny)  I am ready for FALL! 

On my bedside table....... My study Bible, a floral box, purple pen, and small pink box of stamps. 

Right now I am.... Getting a very late start on my meal prepping for the upcoming week.  Weekends are just never long enough.  

Thinking.... of starting a fall bucket list later today. 

Something fun or interesting that happened.... I've decided to join my local library's face-to-face book club!  I hope I'll go!  LOL 

On my reading pile....  I finished Blake Crouch's "Dark Matter"  (you can see the full review HERE)  and Maya Angelou's "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings".  I loved them both!  I will be reviewing this one later this week.  

I'll be starting Mosim Hamid's "Exit West"  

I've posted a weekly reading meme called The Monday Book Report if you'd like to catch up on all I've been reading.

On my TV..... Days of Our Lives, Young and Restless, YouTube videos.  Hoping to watch "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" tonight.  If I do, I will update. 

On the menu for this week....
Monday -  Skinny Ms. Chicken Parmesan Casserole   (I cooked this today (Sunday) Not a big fan. 
Tuesday -   Beef and broccoli with brown rice 
Wednesday - Green chicken enchiladas 
Thursday -  Turkey burger with broccoli cheese tots 
Friday -  Family dinner and game night - I have no idea 
Saturday - A WW friendly version of Chicken Souvlaki with Herb Quinoa and Tzatziki 

Sunday - Doritos Taco Salad

In my planner(s) this week.... I have yet to set up my planners for the week.  If I get them done before this publishes tomorrow morning, I will share! 

Favorite blog/vlog of the week..... I came to find out too late in the game to join that it is "Austen in August"!  Here is one of the posts that I've enjoyed about Jane's work this week! 

Looking forward to this week.... A trip to the library and giving my youngest driving lessons 

Looking around the house....  It's not chaos, but it needs some picking up and vacuuming.  

Weekly Bible study..... In week three of "Her Binder Project".  We have been discussing God's promises.  


  1. I can see your pictures. Have a great week

  2. Not sure I ever looked forward to giving driving lessons ;) Maybe that's why it took us so long to get another driver around here. A face to face book club would be a lot of fun. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  3. I taught my younger cousin to drive in my 20s, then my eldest daughter, my son, and now my youngest! She's doing very well, that's why I can look forward to it! :)

  4. I haven't joined a face-to-face book club but it does sound fun. Have a great week!
