Happy Homemaker Monday 11/13

  Monday is calling! And I'm not so sure I'm ready to answer!   Goodness!  Last week I had a paper to write, a book report for my class, which honestly took up every ounce of free time I could muster up!  On top of that, we had soccer games and practice, hosting the world day of prayer with WMU,  the last well-check visit for my children for the year, shoe shopping at the beach, couples meeting, having a dinner night with friends, among our other ministry commitments.  Needless to say, my home is in dire need of some tlc!  If only that were all, our trip to the mountains next week for Thanksgiving and the recent cool evenings is calling me to unpack all of the winter clothes from the storage unit, and my sweet son is begging me to get the Christmas box out!  So hello Monday, not sure I'm ready to answer all your calls today!  So let's just breathe and sit here with my tea, and begin Happy Homemaker Monday, shall we?

Breakfast time....what is on the plate this morning::::
Just some slimfast :)  I love the shakes!  I would like to find one that I like just as much that has a little less sugar and more protein, but I do enjoy the slimfast ones and have for years!

Right now I am::::
Writing, just relaxing, and letting my babies sleep in this rainy morning!

The weather outside::::
Very rainy and cool!  Not chill to the bone like it is back at our hometown, lol..  but cool nonetheless!

Looking around the house::::
 Do I have too?

On today's to do list::::
   I have a whole weekend worth of laundry..  not to mention unpacking warm clothes/packing up summer clothes!  Hopefully we can get some Christmas decorating done as well, the home needs to get back on its feet!  And organizing the school room... hopefully I can get that done as the kids go through their independent work today!

Currently reading::::
  I finished my Word Filled Women's ministry book last week, so hopefully I can get back to my She Can't Even Play the Piano book, I so love that book!  Also, Hands Free Mama..  it's a good one!

On the TV today::::
 Planning to catch up on this past weeks episode of Once while I'm working out this morning.  Missing When Calls the Heart :(

On the menu this week::::
   I haven't even gotten that far!

If I have a few minutes to myself, I will::::
  Work on some cute ornaments the wmu is making for our Lottie Moon offering display!  I'm excited about trying them and hope to make some extra for our tree at home!

New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::::
  Nothing new yet!  I do have a weight watchers cookbook that I haven't even opened, I would like to see whats in it!

Looking forward to this week::::
  Spending some quiet time around the house with my family, putting up some Chrsitmas decor and getting ready to visit family in the mountains next week!

Favorite photo from the camera::::
  I sat in the yard last week reading my book and snapped a few pics of my sweet little guy drawing on the front porch.  When did he get so big?  He's so precious to me...

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses::::
   From my husband's sermon this week...

Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
