Happy Homemaker Monday


The weather:::
It's been warm and cloudy here lately. 

Right now I am:::
Sitting at the kitchen counter typing this post, waiting on the grocery delivery, and talking to Ben while he does the breakfast dishes.

On my reading pile:::
I just finished The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena and now I'm reading The Status of All Things by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke.

Movies or Shows I watched this weekend:::
Saturday night movie night we watched The Conjuring (I'd previously seen 1/3 of the movie and have seen the sequel) and The Aviator (I've already seen it) and then yesterday while folding laundry we watched a little Planet Earth 2 about animals in major cities. Last night, of course, was Game of Thrones which Shawn and I try to never miss.

On my TV:::
I'm hoping to finish Ozark this week. Maybe...

On the menu for this week:::

Bangers and Mash with green veg   
Spaghetti and garlic bread       
Honey mustard Pork Scallopini and potatoes
Grilled Chicken Breast with beans and veg
Homemade Pizza

On my to do list:::
Kitchen......Pick up counter tops Sydney will vacuum and I will mop.
Laundry.....I've got about 1 load to wash, a load in the dryer and one in the basket to fold and put away, and the kids new school clothes to de-tag.
House......The girls are going to dust, Ben's going to wipe down bathrooms, I'll clean the glass and the kids will vacuum their rooms.
School..... Getting everything ready for the kids new school year.  Ben and Syd start 4th and 2nd grade on Wednesday and Rylie starts kindergarten on Friday. Scottie doesn't start preschool for another couple of weeks. I have meetings with Ben and Syd's teachers this afternoon.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Nothing at the moment, but still hoping to jump back into my virus stitch blanket.

Looking around the house:::
Ben has finished doing dishes and is playing on the switch next to me at the kitchen counter. The girls are running around the house playing some pretend game where Scottie is a puppy (her favorite thing to pretend to be) and poor Duchess is laying on the couch looking annoyed that they are being so loud and disturbing her sleep. Shawn is at work in the office. We moved furniture around in the basement yesterday making it feel much more cozy. I'm much happier with it already.

From the camera:::

My beautiful babies on our last adventure before school starting this week.

What I'm wearing today:::
Jean shorts and a white and navy blouse with a pair of nude colored sandals.  

One of my simple pleasures:::
Sunday afternoons at home with the family. We did nothing but fold laundry together and watch nature documentaries together but it's my favorite thing. 

Inspirational Quote, Bible verse, anything you want to share:::

In honor of the kids going back to school this week.

My girls go back to school next Tuesday. We've begun "training". Early to bed, early to rise. They are NOT liking it :)

Have a great week!

Great quote for the week. Like the KC Royals gear. Hope you have a wonderful week and the kids have a great start to their school year!
