Happy Homemaker Monday, Early Weekend Edition

Cheating a bit with this week’s post and working on it over the weekend.

We’re (hopefully) enjoying our vacation today but I still want to stick to my goal of publishing a Happy Homemaker Monday post for each week in 2018. Even when it’s not a full week, it helps to have a bit of a plan.

Straight to the categories…

The Weather

Hot and steamy, upper 80s and low 90s. Typical of June for this area. We may or may not need sweatshirts and jackets for the early mornings and evenings on our vacation.

Right Now I Am

Listening to my son and his friend play video games and wondering whether to offer them breakfast or lunch as they just woke up a little before 1p.m. Teenagers!


Mostly about our upcoming trip and the too many errands for the time I allotted. Also, about a possible upcoming blog series Rebecca from Rebecca’s Hearth and Home and I have been discussing. Excited for it! And finally, about what to have for lunch because I’m hungry.

On My Reading Pile

Pretty proud of the my reading progress. Finished reading The Second Lives of Honest Men by John Cameron. Enjoyed it. Also, read Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores The Hidden Side Of Everything by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner AND in one day finished my free Amazon Prime May Kindle selection, Matchmaking For Beginners by Maddie Dawson.

I’m back on track with Good-reads! You can see my reviews of the books on my profile over there if interested. Time to get back to the library.

On My TV

I’ve been mostly reading but I did finish up the second season of Riverdale on Netflix. It’s a fun show if you don’t take it too seriously. I described it to my husband as “Dynasty meets Scooby Doo”. It’s actually based on the Archie comics which I don’t recall as being so dark but maybe they were. Probably not a lot TV watching again this week.

Something Interesting I Watched

The people waiting in line at two separate banks. Always fun to people watch!

What I Found While Surfing The Net

This pizza equation worked really well for me last Tuesday evening. Of course, if you want leftover pizza, order an extra one or two!  We had exactly 3 slices left so the equation worked but my plan to feed the teenagers pizza for breakfast/lunch the next day did not.

The Pizza Equation

On The Menu This Week

Didn’t do so good with it again last week…

MONDAY: Flat Iron Steaks We had hamburgers


WEDNESDAY: Copycat Chik-Fil-A We had McDonalds

THURSDAY: Ham Steaks We had tacos

FRIDAY: It ended up being an On Your Own night as we’d already had both hamburgers and pizza

Thankfully, I don’t have to worry about it too much this week…





FRIDAY: No idea, probably something easy like frozen pizza

On My To-Do List

  1. Relax
  2. Have fun with family
  3. Rest
  4. Take pictures

In The Craft Basket

Nothing again this week

Looking Forward To

Spending time with my family and going on adventures plus not worrying about dinner for a few days, ha!

Looking Around The House

My husband cleaned the kitchen so it doesn’t look too bad. The rest of it needs a bit of work as always.

Quote For The Week

Better to see something once than hear about it a thousand times. (Asian proverb)


Hope your Monday is off to a magical start! And, don’t forget to visit our host, Sandra, over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom!

      Thank you! We’re having a great time so far. Have a feeling this is going to be the kind of vacation where we come home and collapse, LOL! Talk to you when we get back.
