HAPPY HOMEMAKER MONDAY ~ SIMPLE WOMAN’S DAYBOOK

happy homemaker 2

DIARY OF A STAY AT HOME MOM

Outside my window/WEATHER… it’s a really grey and rainy with promises of sun TOMORROW.

I’M THINKING… about the future, a new house and a renewed sense of purpose.

I’M THANKFUL… for my renewed health after my recent scare with Long QT syndrome.

IN THE KITCHEN… we have a few new recipes brewing for the April/May menu.
I’ll post the successful ones as we go.

  • BAKED CABLE GUY ASIAN SEA BASS
  • BAKED STEAKS
  • AUSTRIAN CHICKEN STRUDEL
  • SAUERBRATEN MEATLOAF
  • PUERTA RICAN CHICKEN STEW
  • DRUNKEN PORK CHOPS
  • CHOCOLATE CHICKEN
  • SOUTH SEAS CHICKEN
  • MILK BRAISED PORK
  • CRUNCHY BLOODY MARYS

I’M WEARING… very worn levis, a COZY turtleneck and cozy socks.

I’M CREATING… SOME ORGANIZATION!

I’M GOING… to the eye doctor, grocery store and for a walk.

I AM WONDERING…what my doctor’s appointment will hold as an outcome AND when we’ll wrap up this VA mess – seems like we’re always starting over.

Something fun to share::: My new Doxie scanner.  I’ve been able to take 2 banker’s boxes full of recipes and scan them into my computer, pictures and all and throw away the paper and eliminate the boxes!

MY READING LIST… Marie Force’s The McCarthys of Gansett Island BOOK #6

MY TV LINEUP THIS WEEK…  is a long list, but that’s the beauty of all of them being on the DVR – we can do series marathons on rainy days and still skip the commercials

  • CASTLE
  • NCIS

I’M HOPING… that hope springs eternal for real and some issues comes to an end soon.

I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO… GETTING TO WARM WEATHER AND THE POOL FOR A WHILE.

I’M LEARNING… how to be patient, but also how to squeak the wheel for oil WHEN NECESSARY!

AROUND THE HOUSE… organization has won.

I’M PRAYING… for a meeting of the minds and less political interaction between friends. I’m also praying for a unyielding family member who needs to get a clue to real life.

A FAVORITE QUOTE…
