Happy Homemaker Monday

The weekend brought a lot of work.  Hubby worked on the car repair  (cost of parts were around $200.00), while I did the much needed grocery shopping, and bedroom closet cleaning. 

The car is still being worked on, but will have to stay at the garage (extended family) until this coming weekend.



I'm glad I dove into the closet.  I now have all the yarn organized and stored in plastic totes.  I am told to never say I need to buy yarn (bwahahaha!).  Oh, but I am not done in the closet yet.  I found more UFO's, and a lot of other lost things.  I'll be in there finishing it up this week, but Hubby (still) needs to purge his clothing.  It's a good think I haven't moved the totes upstairs just yet.  I keep finding more yarn to put in the totes, ha ha!

I made a magnetic mini clip board to attach to the metal shelving in my closet.  I am writing down all UFO's I find to keep better track of what needs finished.

My second oldest child turned 26 over the weekend.  Sigh....hard to believe.  My oldest turns 28 in a few months.  Double sigh....



Today I am joining Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.

The weather outside . . .



Rain, 32°F, foggy.

How I am feeling this morning . . .
I feel like I'm getting a head cold.  The weather here is bouncing up and down and so hard to deal with.  It will get very cold again this coming weekend.

On my mind . . .
The car, our youngest daughter's regionals (contest, first step to getting her cosmetology license) coming up (if she passes, she gets to go to state next), and the wood supply.  We are going to need more for the weekend.  This weather is like a thunder-snow-nado type week.  

On the breakfast plate . . .

Broccoli, cheese and egg bake, organic black coffee.  The recipe is online and is so good!  So simple too.  


On the reading pile . . .

On the TV . . .
What If, Netflix

On the to-do list . . .
-laundry
-dishes
-put dinner in the crock pot


On the menu . . .
-Turkey/zucchini meatballs, marinara sauce, peas
-Crock pot Chicken Cacciatore, Brussel Sprouts or roasted veggies
-Cauliflower stuffed peppers
-Chicken sausage sheet pan dinner
-Broccoli/egg breakfast casserole
-Sweet potato/black bean frittata


What I am creating . . .

A set of sunflower cup coasters, and trying to catch up on UFO's (a scrap lapghan), and some cross bookmarks.  I'm also putting together a memory book for a Valentine's gift to my husband.  The mini-photo album was only $1.12, and Im using scrap booking supplies to create it.  I'm also about to start a new baby blanket for a friend of the family.  I just need to check what colors I have before I haul the yarn upstairs.


From the camera . . .

Snow moon.  While I was taking pictures of it, I distinctly heard a coyote out back.


Looking around the house . . .
I need to move totes of yarn from the living room to the upstairs spare bedroom.


Chore I am not looking forward to today . . .
Moving the totes


To relax this week I will . . .
Crochet and maybe read.

Prayers . . .

Your breakfast looks delicious! I'll have to try it sometime! I hope that you get your car back soon, ours just got out of the shop last week and it was quite a pain!

Jean said...

Your weather photo is gorgeous. I could easily see that in a frame and hanging up somewhere. Sounds like we've all got that see-saw back and forth weather pattern. Hope you have a wonderful week!

Kristina said...

Thanks Stacy, it has been driving me nuts not having a vehicle lately.

Kristina said...

Jean, that's a great idea for the photo. I will have to get it printed and framed. Have a nice week.

Sandra said...

Your breakfast is making me so hungry, yummy.

Glad your car is getting worked on, hope it is fixed soon. Have a blessed week.

I was once told the way to say it is "I have everything I need to get started." That leaves an opening if you "need" something more:-) Thought that was pretty clever.

Kristina said...

Thanks Sandra, I hope it's up and running this weekend.

Kristina said...

Very clever Lady Locust

My goodness I did smile at the amount of yarn boxes you have. I am betting you won't have the right colour for your next project lol! Love the cross it would make an amazing bookmark for a bible.

I always love your breakfast casseroles. The UFO list is a great idea. I enjoy your Monday posts as it motivates me to get my rear in gear! LOL! BTW, where did you get the pattern for the cross bookmark? I have been looking for one just like that to make for the grands and for gifts. I tried to get the next Joanna Fluke...I'm on Cherry Cheesecake Murder but Thriftbooks didn't have it...boo hoo!

Kristina said...

Thanks mamasmercantile, I have all the yarn but one color lol!

Kristina said...

Sam I am I got the pattern online. I'll see if I can locate it.
