Happy Homemaker Monday

I am joining up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom, for today's Happy Homemaker Monday.

The weather. . .
 ~ sunny, beautiful, high of 72°F.

Right now I am. . .
 ~ taking a break from weeding the front flower beds, considering lunch options, putting more laundry out on the line....

On my Reading Pile. . .
 ~ a pile of old magazines, (non-fiction) Seeds of Deception, and my fiction book "The Bones of Plenty" 

Movies or Shows I watched this weekend. . .
 ~ nothing, spent my time working outside, watching football, and doing handiwork.

On my TV. . .
 ~the news, we finally bought an antenna. 

On the menu for the week. . .
 Monday:  One pot chili mac n' cheese
 Tuesday:  homemade alfredo with peas
 Wed- Sunday - have no idea yet.

On my to-do list. . .
-laundry, washed and out on line
-spend 1 hour weeding flower beds
-spend 1 hour deep cleaning kitchen
-label jars and store them in the pantry
-empty bathroom trash
-pick peppers from garden
-pick black raspberries
-dinner prep
-plant more garlic
-water plants
-put wine labels in wine journal

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating. . .
 ~ lots of projects, but last night I worked on a hand towel that will be up for sale possibly.  Photos to come soon in an update.

Looking around the house. . .
 ~ it's looking much cleaner every day now.

From the camera. . . 
  Jasper - enjoying his new bed, but upset I woke him up from his slumber, ha ha!

One of my simple pleasures. . .
 ~ playing cards with my husband, going camping, and campfire cooking.

Inspirational quote, bible verse. . .

We had an antena that picked up seven channels in the mountains, and now that we are at the coast we have 30! But no abc, which is unfortunate :( But yes, we watch a lot of news, and public broadcasted kids cartoons lol! But its better than paying for satellite anyday!
You have a beautiful kitty! I think our kittens beds may be softer than the ones we sleep in, lol!
Have a great week!

Stacy D, thanks for visiting my blog today. Yes, it is way less expensive to ditch our cable service. They had raised rates to $180/month and internet only is $64.99/month. It's crazy! It felt good to see the news, because we have family down in FL and GA. Jasper is a cutie and a lover. Thanks. I hope your week is grand too.
