Happy Homemaker Monday 11/27/2017

I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Thanksgiving weekend.  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.  I'm thinking this will be the last week for the fall photo - Friday is December 1!

The weather:::

Clear but chilly - LOVE it!

On my reading pile:::
Part Four of Keep the Home Fires Burning - finally started reading it!

On my TV:::
Outlander, Season 3, on STARZ
The White Princess (we worked our way through the White Queen over the weekend)
The Durrells in Corfu on PBS

On the menu for this week:::

Monday - Grilled Shrimp, Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Potatoes
Tuesday - Ham Steak, Macaroni and Cheese
Wednesday - Lamb Korma
Thursday - Fish and Chips
Friday - Flank Steak, Mushrooms, Roasted Potatoes

On my to-do list:::
  • Continuing on with the Holiday Grand Plan - it's Holiday Decor Week
  • Overseas Transfer Workshop with Vic today
  • Dentist appointment
  • Stay home for heating company to install new heating system
  • Volunteer shift at the gift shop
  • Sign and seal all Christmas cards and get them in the mail
  • December Daily starts Friday
  • Drop off more Christmas items at the consignment shop
  • Gift of Memories Weekend at Hallmark
  • Colonial Tea
  • Holiday Open House with dress uniform for Vic and Christmas glamour for me - we received an invitation to the premiere event of the season at one of the local historic homes - I'm sure the decorations are going to be amazing!

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

Looking around the house:::
Laundry, sticking to the daily housekeeping plan.

From the camera:::

This was an amazing event - if you ever get the chance to see a movie accompanied by a symphony orchestra, especially a movie with a score by John Williams, not to be missed!

Something fun (or intriguing) to share:::

I've never seen placemats like this before - what a great idea!

What I'm wearing today:::
Jeans, long-sleeved shirt, fleece jacket, socks, and clogs.


  1. Those placemats look great for a round table! Sounds like you're having a busy week. Have a great weekend.
