Happy Homemaker Monday

I am linking up with Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. Head on over to find some other great bloggers.

For Today... October 17th, 2022

The weather... Its 39° right now, and the high for today is 47°.

As I look outside my window... Its still dark out...and with the temp showing on my phone, its a bit chilly out there.

Right now I am ... Typing up this post and listening to the Chicks on the Right podcast

Thinking and Pondering... About my upcoming trip to Utah this month. I think I have everything squared away as to what I am taking, and wearing, now to get the hubs ready for me being away for the weekend.

How am I feeling... tired, we stayed up late watching football.

On the breakfast plate... water and a chocolate fudge poptart

On the lunch plate... not sure yet

On the dinner plate... sketti, its Monday after all

What I'm wearing... a purplish long sleeve top and a pair of black leggings

On my reading pile... nothing at the moment

On my tv... football - Chicago Med/Fire/PD, La Brea, The Rookie, 911, The Resident, New Amsterdam, The Amazing Race, Big Sky, Blue Bloods, Monarch, Walker Grey's Anatomy, Fire Country, Walking Dead

On the menu this week
Monday ~ spaghetti, garlic bread and a salad
Tuesday ~ minestrone soup and homemade bread
Wednesday ~ eggs, toast, sausage
Thursday ~ pizza for the hubs, me ???
Friday ~ leftovers for the hubs, me ???
Saturday ~ ???
Sunday ~ ???

Looking around the house... I did my pre/deep clean before going away clean, so we shall see how it is once I get back home.

To Do List... call the bank to put the travel alert on my debit card, and call pre check in

From the camera... The hubs and I went on a drive up north, and took the route of M-37, and took it to the very end, which dead ended into Lake Michigan at the 45 Parallel at Old Mission Point. We saw "bigfoot" (lol). Stopped by my high school, and saw that they now have a memorial up front from a few former alumni from the Veitnam War

New recipe I tried last week, or one that we really enjoyed, or one I want to try... I tried out the 2 ingredient bread recipe and made bagels, you can see it here.

To relax this week, I will... cross stitch and possibly some crocheting.

On my prayer list... All my stitchy friends, for safe travels to and from Utah this coming weekend.

Devotional/Bible Verse/Quote...

In closing...Thank you for stopping by. I hope your week ahead is filled with lots of blessings!

Until next time remember to live a little, laugh alot and love always!
