Happy Homemaker Monday

I really have been MIA for a couple of weeks.  We've had a lot going on in our home.  We've been under the weather for a couple of weeks as well.  Finally, I think we are getting better and things are getting in order for us.

The Weather:::

A little warmer this week than the past week or so.  Maybe we'll be able to get out and enjoy Halloween trick-r-treating on Thursday!

Right now I am::: 
Sitting on the couch while I watch the today show and enjoy a cup of English Breakfast Tea. 

About how to prepare this pork loin for dinner.  After some research, I think I've come up with a good idea to create a yummy dinner. 

On my reading pile:::
I'm finally going to start Then Came You by Jennifer Weiner. She is my favorite author after all.
Also, Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible.  You should see my cookbooks.  Post its hanging out everywhere "pinning" recipes I can't wait to try, and little notes in the margins when I do try them.  I am a cookbook junky!

On my tv:::
I'm not really sure at this moment.  If the kids allow, then I may get some Walking Dead in, but the kids have to be occupied elsewhere.  Other than that, I'm not sure.  Maybe I'll finally take the opportunity today to get caught up on Downton Abbey.

On the menu for this week:::

Monday - Apricot Glazed Pork Loin, Roasted Veggies, and Homemade bread
Tuesday - Chili and Cornbread  
Wednesday - Pizza
Thursday - Going out for my neices birthday 
Friday - 
Saturday - 
Sunday - 

On my to do list:::
Carve pumpkins with the kids

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
I haven't had a chance to do much, although I'm dying to get back to my Granny square blanket, maybe work on a couple of scarves for Sydney and my niece, Langston, and some aprons. 

Looking around the house:::
My house is actually pretty clean.  There are a few toys in the living room to be picked up and a basket of laundry waiting to be washed in the hallway.  The dishwasher is running in the kitchen, the dryer is running.  The girls are both watching Special Agent Oso on their iPads.  I'm so excited to not have a ton of cleaning to do, and to not feel bogged down by chores and a mess.  I can actually enjoy my home.

From the camera::: 
Shawn had been gone all day visiting his uncle a few hours away.  He came home and the kids were so excited.  They all picked Halloween books for him to read to them before bed.

On my prayer list:::
My husband's family as they begin to heal from the passing of Shawn's Grandma.  

Bible verse, Devotional:::

and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been been poured out into our hearts through the holy Spirit that has been given to us. ~ Romans 5:5
