Happy Homemaker Monday 5/1/2017

It's time for another Happy Homemaker Monday with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.  Click here if you'd like to join in .

The weather:::

Summer is here - high 70s and low 80s all week.  Still resisting turning on the air conditioner!

On my reading pile:::
Still working on to A Harvest of Hope, Book 2 in the Song of Blessing series.

On my TV:::

Call the Midwife
Home Fires
Bomb Girls

On the menu for this week:::

Vic is home so it's a full week of meals here.
Monday - Oven-Roasted Salmon with Broccoli and New Potatoes
Tuesday - Grilled Shrimp Caesar Salad
Wednesday - BBQ Korean Ribs with Potato Salad
Thursday - Physical Therapy for me in the morning so I don't know what I'll feel like - Chicken Cobb Salad on standby as it's easy to put together
Friday - Grilled Steak, Baked Potatoes, Mushrooms
Saturday - Chicken Tikka Masala

On my to-do list:::

  • Haircut
  • Physical Therapy appointment followed by sale event at the gift shop to check out

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Still working on ornaments for the Christmas in July ornament swap and finishing up the photo album project for our MOPS reunion.  I ordered prints from Shutterfly so my scrapbooking is on hold until they come in, hopefully mid-week.

Looking around the house:::

Tidy, unloaded the dishwasher while Vic was eating breakfast, one load of laundry to finish up.

From the camera:::

We had a wonderful time at the Tattoo on Saturday night - since this is the 100th anniversary of the United States' entry into World War I and the founding of Naval Station Norfolk, it was a double commemoration.

Something fun to share:::
My friend Lucie from What makes me happy shared a great You Tube site - we're gearing up for Christmas in July over at Magical Holiday Home and she found Bring it to life with Gail's Christmas in July craft a day series - so many great ideas!  I don't know if she'll be doing it again this year but if not, we have all of 2016's videos to watch.

What I'm wearing today:::
Denim capris, red T-shirt, white sandals.

Bible Verse, Devotional, Quote:::

Learning is not attained by chance; it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence - Abigail Smith Adams


  1. Both your week's events and dinners sound terrific! I'm still not sure if I'm going to do the Christmas in July celebration but I will definitely think about it. I hope you have a blessed week!

  2. The Tattoo sounds like fun. We went to the one in Edinburgh one year and absolutely loved it. Have a nice week!

  3. That's a wonderful series of videos with so many ideas for Christmas! I'll need to go through each one at some point and see if there's anything I could make for this year. Sounds like you have beautiful weather there. Ours took a turn for the worst: in the 30s with rain/snow/sleet. Brrr! Hope you have a great week!

  4. Your menu looks phenomenal. I'm also having Chicken Tikka Masala within the next few days :) Glad Vic is home, enjoy every minute.

    Have a great week Pamela :)

  5. I'm running SUPER late this week. Hope you had a GREAT one. Your menu looks super yummy!
