Happy homemaker Monday To read more wonderful ladies, visit Diary of A Stay at Home Mom.

The weather in my neck of the woods:
Rain.  So much rain.  We’ve had water in our garage for two weeks now.  ShopVac is getting a workout.

Things that make me happy:
Having a freshly cut lawn, being with the kids during vacation
Menu for this week:
Monday – pasta night.
 Tuesday – chicken
 Wednesday – pizza
Thursday – burgers
 Friday – pork chops
 Saturday – grilling out
 Sunday – crock pot
What’s on my TV today:
I’ve been watching a lot of Food network shows.  Some of American Ninja Warrior.  And missing So You Think You Can Dance, which tapes, but my daughter watches without me and deletes.
Looking around the house:
It looks like a trainwreck.  With kids home all day and rain keeping them inside, me babysitting, and my hubs working his tail off = messy!
On my To Do List:
Sleep and breathe
Get the kids to the library this week
Change the lock on the tv so they can’t watch all day
New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:
I am starting to eat clean in the mornings and my snacks.  Then eat usual for lunch and dinner, just less of it.  Not ready to 100% make change yet.
In the craft basket:
I have started a new quilt for the fall to sit under/on at football games as we watch my daughter cheer.  In the school colors of course.

Looking forward to this week:
Nothing really.  Sad to admit.  It is going to be a very busy week and I already feel overwhelmed looking at the calendar.

Tips and Tricks:
Nothing up my sleeve today.

My favorite blog post this week:
Since I am back into quilting, it’s been all about those blogs.  I really like crazymomquilts. And a constant favorite is A Quilting Sheep.

Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
Not a new blog, but new to me.  Living Well Spending Less.

No words needed (favorite photo or picture):


Lesson learned the past few days:
That some of my friends are much less conservative than I am.  And much less accepting of others’ opinions.

On my mind:
Wanting to find a new church that preaches the Word, has an ethical staff, and serves my children well.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Just an inspiring quote I saw on fb that ended with “live like its Heaven on earth”.  I so agree and disagree with this.  I want to live like Heaven; rejoicing everyday and loving others, full of light and happiness…but this earth has nothing on Heaven and what eternity will be like – I want to live for Heaven on earth.

Happy 4th of July

New Project

So I decided on the nine patch pattern for my Stadium Quilt.  Here are the yardage pieces I have been collecting since May.  I’ve been picking up pieces here and there with coupons and sales.  This does not include the scraps I was sent by my bloggy friends…those should be up next.  I am going to a Sewing Bee today, where I will be cutting away!  So excited to get started on a new project.





Linking up at some great blogs, check them out:

Back home after a wonderful week at the beach.

Forecast is for rain, rain, and more rain.  And temperatures in the mid 60s to low 70’s. A thirty degree difference, not to mention last weeks’ heat indexes.  It’s summer on the calendar, but after a week of surf and sun…I am wondering if this weekend won’t seem like a return to spring.

Getting ready for vacation is so time consuming.  I really do like the organizing and packing though much more than unpacking. It’s a packed week of activities, just hoping I can find time to get some sleep and keep up my walking too.

Monday – Meetings in the evening – Pasta night.  Trusty spaghetti.

Tuesday – Kids practice.  Grilled chicken and corn on the cob.

Wednesday – Church.  Oven hamburger steaks and fries.

Thursday – Kids practice again.  Pizza.

Friday – Hubby is on his own!
