Happy Homemaker Monday

Today I am linking up with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom, for Happy Homemaker Monday.

Is quite humid feeling, although there s a slight cool breeze at the moment. Once the sun comes up however, that is likely to disappear.

Things That Make Me Happy…

My new fly swatters. It really is the small things.

As I Look Out My Window…

I can see lawn that has been freshly whippersnippered, and a bunch of random items strewn around the yard, which is my sons attempt at building himself a parkour course.

On My Reading Pile…

Nothing. I have bought us all Kindles for Christmas, so have been buying and stockpiling Kindle books in the cloud, just waiting for December 25. I predict this Christmas day will be very quiet indeed!

On My TV…

I saw “The Hitmans’ Bodyguard” this week, but I just could not get into it. I think I lasted about 30 minutes before giving up. This week I am going to watch “Almost Christmas”, catch up on the “God Friended Me” episode I missed, and have a retro movie night with “Cocoon” and “Cocoon Returns”. I really love re-watching old movies.

On My Plate For Dinner Tonight…

Chicken in some form. I am proud to be a thrifty shopper, stretching a dollar further than anyone I know, and this week I managed to score 6 packs of chicken fillets at $4 a pack, 4 whole chickens and $4 each, and 6 trays of shepherd’s pie at $3 a tray. I have a deep freezer, which makes it easy to portion up and freeze for later use. So this fortnight our meals feature heavily with chicken, next week it could be beef.

On The Menu This Week…

Monday: Chicken fillet with mashed potato, steamed sweet potato, steamed carrot and steamed broccoli.

Tuesday: Shepherd’s pie with vegetables.

Wednesday: Whole roast chicken with roast potatoes and roast pumpkin (skins on).

Thursday: Leftover chicken, shredded, added to pasta and sauce.

Friday: Toasted sandwiches.

Saturday: Steamed vegetables with gravy.

Sunday: Chicken fillets with steamed vegetables.

On My To Do List…

Interview Santa for my blog.

Apply for university scholarships.

Sew a badge onto my son’s String Orchestra uniform.

Make a list of places to visit for an excursion in 2019.

New Recipe I Want To Try Soon…

No Bake Rocky Road Cheesecake.

In The Craft Basket…

Just a few papercrafts to use as props for Sprinkles, our Elf on the Shelf.

Tips And Tricks…

Those mesh bags your fruit comes in, are perfect for the laundry sink. Pop in a bar of soap and tie to the tap. Now you have a scrubbing soap that won’t get mushy and stuck in the drain. When the bar is finished, just untie the bag and replace.

Looking Around My House…

I think there is still a bit of space that can be Christmas-fied.

From My Camera…

My mum’s painting up close.

My Simple Pleasure…

Colouring in. I think that it is underrated, it is so good for a persons soul, to sit and colour. It gives you a chance to relax, reflect, and to just be in the moment.

Favourite Quote…

I actually have this Psalm number tattooed on my wrist, it is my favourite Psalm, and is very meaningful to me.
