Homemaker Monday

Good morning lovelies! I hope this Monday brings you a refreshing look on this upcoming week. We spent our weekend watching General Conference. It was a great time to be uplifted and spiritual edified. I am thankful for the messages shared and the direction given me by my loving Heavenly Father. Today I have cleaning, laundry, baking, catch up on. I swear that to do list feels never ending sometimes...but I will take it one thing at a time, so I can carefully cross it off my to do list... it has been a few weeks since I've done a Happy Homemaker and I am happy to join in the fun again this wonderful morning. Won't you join in too?

As I look outside my window:::

I see the sun beginning to shine. It is still early, as I write this, and the littles are still in slumber. I love this quite time in my house...the time right before everything wakes up and our day begins. It is very peaceful.

Right now I am::: 
Still in pajamas, snuggled in bed, with the fan blowing. Hubby is off to hunt for rocks with his brother and I am preparing for a new week. I think it is going to be a good one. 

Thinking and pondering:::

About so many things......yesterday we had the opportunity to watch General Conference. It is a conference for our church (The Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-day Saints). So many beautiful messages were many that pierced my heart. I can't wait to journal my thoughts and just process all the things the Lord wanted me to personally her.

On my bedside table:::

My Phone.......Mouth Guard- I am a horrible teeth grinder at night-.....and a lost drawer to my daughters jewelry box. Some how it found its way behind my nightstand. She will be happy to see it has been recovered.

On my tv tonight:::

Lately we have been binge watching Downton Abbey and Bones

Listening to:::
The whir of the fan

On the menu for this week:::

Fettuccine Alfredo, Sloppy Joes, Pizza, and a few other things I am narrowing down.

On my to do list:::
Making butter
Make banana bread- I have some ripe bananas to use up

Happening this week:::

  Lots of usuals....wrestling, dance class, Family Night, etc.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::

I just finished this project for a contributor post at The Ribbon Retreat. I can't wait for you all to see it this week! I am gushing over it!

My simple pleasure:::

This bit of yumminess. I think I ate four or maybe five hips will not be thanking me in a day or so, but my taste buds certainly did. They were whole what, so that makes it a bit better right? I'll just keep telling myself that.

Homemaking tips:::

One load a day. This is my mantra this week. I have been slacking, which means I end up with a mountain to be folded and put away by Friday. When I do one load a day, completely folded and put week goes a bit smoother.....and hubby never has to go searching for clean underwear. 

Looking around the house:::


I see some things to pick up...leftover dishes from Hubby and my TV Dinner Date. We made chili after the littles went to bed and watched Downton Abbey.
From the camera:::

I love this age! That crooked smile and that hilarious personality. She is my little Miss and I love her to pieces.

Prayer List:::
My father, who is having mother who is children who are hubby who is healing (he had a little accident at work, but all is well).....and myself as I process my thoughts of where the Lord is leading me this week.

Bible verse, Devotional::: 

"Some of our greatest opportunities to demonstrate our love will be within the walls of our own homes."
