Happy Homemaker Monday December 18th, 2017

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

The weather::: Well, we had some snow and some cold weather, but Michigan isn't one to follow the rules.  We'll be up to 52 this week, so we will most likely have an ugly green and brown Christmas. 

On my reading pile:::  I just finished "Comfort and Joy" by Kristin Hannah.  This is my 3rd book by her this year.  It was a nice romance with just enough Christmas magic. 

Right now I am reading "Find Me Unafraid" by Kennedy Odede.    I have wanted to read this book about the Kiberian Slum in Ghana for a long time now, but it was never on sale.  It finally went down a few dollars and I bought it. 

I am also reading "The Christmas Bargain" by Shanna Hatfield.  I love this author.  Her mail-order bride books and old West stories are so good.  Her characters are amazing.  This is a series, so I am sure I will be reading them long after Christmas! 

Movies or Shows I watched this weekend:::
Re-binge-watching Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman 

On my TV:::
Bring It 
Christmas Movies 
YouTube videos

F- Chicken sausage pasta casserole 
S- Mexican chicken w/ black beans and caulirice 

On my to do list:::

Exchange gifts with coworkers 

What I am crafting or creating:::  I did a couple of Dollar Tree Christmas crafts that I saw on YouTube! 

What I'm wearing today:::  Black pants and short boots, a light blue cardigan and black top with a light blue print on front. 

Bible verse, Devotional::: I started the God & Glam Bible study a week before Advent.  It will run through the entire year.  

My soul finds rest in God alone, my salvation comes from Him. He alone is my rock and salvation.  He is my fortress.  I will never be shaken." - Psalm 62
