Happy Homemaker Monday 7/17/2017

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:::

Another gloriously (not!) hot, humid, and thunderstorming week.

On my reading pile:::
Finished Dear Bob and Sue, it was a great read and also knocked out Lilac Girls.  I'm moving on to Everyone Brave is Forgiven.  On my Kindle, I have the first of the Keep the Home Fires Burning e-books, Spitfire Down.

On my TV:::
Haven't started Suits yet.  Vic and I had a Roger Moore as 007 marathon last week and I've been catching up on My Mother and Other Strangers on PBS.

On the menu for this week:::

Vic's traveling so it's snack nights.  Small group from church on Wednesday - bring your own meat and a side dish to share so I'm taking lumpia.

On my to-do list:::

  • Pick up lumpia and decide what meat to take to small group (a burger probably - Fresh Market has some yummy looking gourmet offerings)
  • Volunteer shift at the gift shop
  • Lunch Bunch - it's Peruvian this month
  • Pick Vic up at the airport - not sure when as he always tries to get on an earlier flight if they finish up in time
  • Pick up birthday card and gift card for my nephew
  • Mail wedding card to my cousin
  • See Dunkirk at the movies sometime this weekend

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Hoping to get some scrapbooking done while Vic is gone this week.

Looking around the house:::

One load of laundry to do.

From the camera:::

MudLynn on a hike this weekend

Something fun to share:::

Scored this great deal on four of these Easter plates at Williams-Sonoma yesterday - $14.95 each reduced to $4.99 and then 30% off on top of that!

What I'm wearing today:::
Purple sun dress,  flip flops.


  1. I LOVE that puppy photo - too cute! I've never watched Suits, but would like to if I can find season 1 somewhere. It is so hard to follow shows these days with all the different start and stop times, cable channels, pay cable, etc....

    Have a GREAT week.

  2. We have the hot & humid this week as well but no thunderstorms. What a cute dog! Great deal on the Easter plates, very cute. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  3. A Peruvian lunch sounds interesting. I don't know what they eat there except maybe rice and beans and coffee. Hope you enjoy it.

    Visiting from Happy Homemaker Monday. Here's my post.
    Enjoy your week!

  4. Love the Easter plate - what a great bargain. Enjoyed your Monday post as always!
