Happy Homemaker Monday

The past couple of days have been a blur of craziness.  I'm hoping that with the new week, I'll get a little time to rest to fully recover from the pneumonia I had/have.

The Weather:::
Today is cold but by the end of the week it will hopefully be warming up.  

Right now I am: 
Sitting comfully on my couch. Yes, I'm aware that isn't a real word but it seems to fit.

I have so much to do to get this house back into order, and I'm dreading it.

On my reading pile:::
I need to hurry and finish The Widow of Larkspur Inn and Little house in the Big Woods.  Those are actually my projects for the week.

On my tv::: 
Today, probably very little.  I am that far behind on housework.  I do hope to watch season 3 of Downton Abbey ASAP and I have a lot of Ripper Street to catch up on.

Favorite Blog post this week (mine or other):::
I wish I had a blog to share but I've been so busy, between being sick and getting ready for Sydney's birthday, my blog reading has been very behind.

Something fun to share:::
I don't have anything fun to share today either.  I'll try to come more prepared next week.

On the menu for this week:::
My menu is up in the air since my grocery shopping has gotten behind and pay day is Friday.

Monday - Sausage and cheese frittata 
Tuesday - Hamburger steaks with sweet onion brown gravy, mashed potatoes, brussels sprouts with bacon
Wednesday - BBQ chicken
Thursday -  Beefy Cheesy Spaghetti Casserole
Friday - 
Saturday -
Sunday -

On my to do list:::
Clean the kitchen 
Take the kids to Laugh Out Loud

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Nothing specific at the moment.  I haven't had time for it.  Maybe I'll pick back up my hexagon blanket.

Homemaking Tips:::
I don't even have anything today.

Looking around the house:::
Rylie's toys and the library books are thrown around the living room, there are baskets of laundry waiting to be folded or washed in the hallway, there are dishes in the sink to be washed and piles of papers and things to be put away on the kitchen counters.  I'm actually freaking out just looking at it all.  Rylie is watching Mickey Mouse Club house while Ben plays on his iPad and Sydney listens and dances around to music on her new cd player.

From the camera:::

Daddy putting Sydney's new necklace on her after swimming for her birthday.

On my prayer list:::
My cousin Molly.  

Bible verse, Devotional:::
But as for me, I will look to the Lord, I will wait for God my savior; my God will hear me! ~ Micah 7:7

She is the cutest little thing, actually all of your kiddos are :)

I didn't know you had pneumonia, this is what happens when I leave Facebook. So sorry, hope you are well on your way to recovery.

Have a wonderful week Liz :)

Thank you ladies!

Sandra, I'd been fighting something for about a month and it got pretty bad almost two weeks ago. I finally went to the doctor after days of an awful cold and not being able to breath, only to find out that I had pneumonia. I was supposed to take it easy as well as take my meds, but that's not so easy when you have three kids and a birthday party to plan and do. I'm actually doing a lot better though.

Have a great week.
