Welcome I am so glad to be back to Happy Homemaker. I love the January theme of snowmen. I found this adorable guy last year when I cleaned out my mothers apartment. He was boxed in the back of a closet. I had never seen him before. That is how my mama rolled. She probably bought him to give to me and lost him!
I am looking forward to the New Year and I pledge I will be
with that said let's get on with it!
The weather (Sandra's prompt)
Today (Saturday) it is rainy. We went out for a quick potty (the dogs) a bit ago when it wasn't rainy but it started again. It's a great day for staying in . . . but Oh I had plans! It has been really nice this last week in the 70's! Gorgeous weather.
What I am wearing (Sandra's prompt)
Today . . . right now I am wearing some jogging pants and a tank. I don't match but I am inside and no one knows but you!
Later if I decide to venture out I'll find something that matches better!
On my reading pile (Sandra's prompt)
I am still finishing a few Christmas stories this week . . .
On my Kindle cloud reader. I figured out how to use it!
On the tablet. I only have a few preview chapters but it sounds good. I hope it has a happy ending. Not in the mood for tears.
And a suspense I need to get on for a tour in January.
On the blogs (My prompt)
Next year LOL I love saying that this time of year! I have something planned. The end of January I will be hosting
A week of Romance.
I hope you'll stop by and meet some great authors. I have picked a few of my favorites. You'll find intro's to new books and author interviews. Come by and see some behind the scenes of some of my favorite authors.
On the menu (Sandra's prompt)
All our meals are Low or No Sodium. Lot's of experimenting going on with recipes.
Monday Potato Soup, Cesar Salad, Fruit
Tuesday First attempt at No sodium Taco's
Wednesday Fried Cod, Onion Rings, Cole Slaw and Fruit
Thursday Deer Camp Casserole, Fresh Green Beans
Friday Oven Roast Chicken, Potato's and Carrots, Turnip Greens
It's a new challenge to cook No Sodium but I am happy and excited to learn a new way of cooking that is healthier for both of us.
In the garden/green house (my prompt)
I have growing:
Romaine, Celery, Garlic, Green Onions, and Basil
I have planted:
Swiss Chard (not looking good), Broccoli (not sprouted) Green and Red Bell Peppers (from seeds from Peppers I bought/cooked)
Planning to pick up some potting soil today. I'll pick up a few seeds if there are any out. I have tomato seeds and turnips I will plant this week.
Barring no hard freezes I don't have enough heat in the green house. I may end up with a house full of sprouts!
A new simple pleasure
Walking my dogs. Lot's of changes going on and planning.
We will be moving to an apartment soon. I am learning the habit of going out with the dogs again.
In the craft room
Sandra's prompt is in the Crafting Basket but I changed it cuz I have more going on that will fit in a basket. But with the upcoming move all that will change!
For now I am working on Valentines Day and Birthday Cards.
I am in several FB groups and a Letter Writing Group. I love mail!
I have made some wonderful new friends!
Here's a new project I am starting today. (if it stops raining and get out to shop a bit)
This is for a SWAP we will be making 3 pretty tags to send to a partner.
Also in the craft room. Sorting through and packing away fabric for the move.
Paper crafting supplies will be packed last! My current fav. hobby.
From the camera
Sharing with you a picture of our super sweet dog Lola. I am sad to say unless God gives us a miracle we will not be able to take her to our new place. We cannot afford deposits for two dogs. Finding a place that we can afford for two people and one dog has been a super challenge.
I am looking to Re Home Lola . . .
The Cowboys health...he has Liver Disease
We need to find a place to move within the next few weeks
We need to re-home Lola ASAP
And before I go I want to thank Sandra at Family Corner for hosting Happy Homemaker. I'll be linking to her party.
You can visit Sandra here.
