Happy Homemaker Monday for February 10th, 2020

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

The weather in my neck of the woods..... We are still experiencing a very mild winter here in the Detroit area.  We have a bit of snow on the ground and expecting more soon - but overall I can't complain! 

Right now I am.... Watching YouTube videos.  Just got back from thrifting with Emily.  We are going to start selling on Poshmark for a little extra money.  I found a gorgeous Kate Spade bag, nice leather Clark boots, and an amazing vintage Chadwick skirt suit to start out with.  It will mostly be Emily's, but I plan on a bit here and there. 

Thinking about.... I have been having some health issues.  Of biggest concern right now is my right leg.  Unsure at the moment what is causing the pain and weakness, but I'm going through a slew of tests.  My doctor thinks it may be a slipped disc in my lower back - so having a back x-ray plus one other test this Thursday.  It is really hindering me.  After walking or standing for 10 minutes, shooting pains go from my mid-thigh down to the point I pretty much have to drag my leg.  *sigh* 

On the blog last week..... Nothing last week.  Just getting back into the blogging groove!  

On my reading pile....  I finished "The Stationary Shop" by Marjan Kamali, "When I Was You" by Minka Kent, and "Where the Forest Meets the Stars" by Glendy Vanderah since I last blogged. They were all excellent!  Right now I am reading "Regretting You" by Colleen Hoover. 

On my TV..... Lots of YouTube videos, Criminal Minds, NYPD Blue

On the menu for this week....

Monday - Peanut Soba Noodles with Crispy Tofu from Jessica Levinson

Tuesday - Leftovers (have Cardio Drumming -  have to sit due to leg issues 😢😢)

Wednesday - Out to dinner with a friend

Thursday - Salmon, farro, roasted vegetables

Friday -  Emily's B-day - out for dinner

Best recipe of last week...... All the different Buddha bowls I tried this week! They were all amazing. 

New recipe I want to try...... Cauliflower Chickpea Curry

On my to do list.... 
*Meal Prep
*Leg & back tests
*Thrift donation 

In my planners.... Haven't been decorating all that much lately - but definitely still using them and decorating a bit.

Looking forward to this week.... My baby's 20th b-day on Valentine's Day! 

Looking around the house.... Need to dust, sweep & mop floors - really needs a deep spring clean soon.

Bible Study..... Continuing with Seamless and also reading "Beholding and Becoming - The Art of Everyday Worship" by Ruth Chou Simons. It is a GORGEOUS book.  I love it. 


  1. OH my goodness.. those food pics look delish!!!

  2. Thrifting is my favorite :) And your meals do look amazing! I hope you have an amazing week!!

  3. Sorry for your health issues, hope you get it figured out and on a healing path very soon. Your food pictures are making me hungry. Have a wonderful week!

  4. Yum food.

    I'm so sorry you're dealing with health issues and I do pray that the doctors can figure it out quickly. Have a wonderful week :)

  5. Hope your leg heals quickly. Those buddha bowls sure look appetizing. Have a great week

  6. I just signed up for Poshmark, let me know your store there and I will stay tuned! Have you been to the doctor about your leg? ...I'm praying about it. The meals looks delicious! <3
