Happy Homemaker Monday
We had the most gorgeous weather this weekend. I think on Sunday we nearly were up to 70 degrees. Today the high is in the high 50s.
On my bedside table:::
Small flower vase with fake flowers
On my reading pile:::
Last night I finished Born a Crime by Trevor Noah, which is an absolute must read! I laughed and cried. Then, I started reading King's Cage by Victoria Aveyard, which is the 3rd book in the Red Queen series that my sister-in-law got me hooked on and I've had to wait for a year for the book's release.
On my TV:::
I need to watch last week's Grey's Anatomy and last night I started Santa Clarita Diet, which is funny. I love Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant is so good looking.
On the menu for this week:::
I need to get the meal plan and grocery list for the week done. We didn't do one last week, since I was sick, and the whole week was a mess with lots of take away.
Tuesday - Rylie's birthday and she requested Shawn's Pancakes and Bacon

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Working on a crochet virus stitch blanket although I may have to run back out to yarn barn sooner rather than later as this blanket goes through the yarn quite quickly.
Looking forward to:::
Rylie's birthday festivities. Kid's birthdays are so fun. Rylie already has this contagious energy and when she's excited about something you can't help but get excited too.
Looking around the house:::
The house is nice and tidy, except for the doll house, car, and Barbies Scottie brought into the upstairs living room to play with, and the breakfast dishes in the sink. Ben and Sydney are already at school. Rylie is wrapped in a blanket on the big arm chair and both girls are watching Mickey Mouse Club House on the TV.
From the camera:::
Something fun to share:::
I can't think of anything off of the top of my head.
What I'm wearing today:::
Currently I'm in my Ft. Jackson Basic Combat Training t-shirt and a pair of sweatpants but I plan on jumping in the shower in a couple of minutes. When I get out, I'll probably put on some jeggings and maybe a button up the front shirt or something.
One of my simple pleasures:::
Family walks. I love going out and taking walks with Shawn and the kids when the weather outside is beautiful. I enjoy the family time and the fresh air.
