Happy Homemaker Monday - August 12, 2019

Greetings, Dear Ladies! And Happy Monday! 💗 

How was your week and weekend? 

Our week and weekend were good here. We had a lot going on including more birthday celebrations and an unexpected visit from my friend, Dorothy. She introduced us to her new man and they announced their engagement! We are so happy for them! 💕

Granddaughter, Ruth. 
I enjoyed a birthday outing with this little cutie this week on Thursday. We had lunch at Sweet Creations and enjoyed a cinnamon roll for dessert. It was a very rainy day, but we sure didn't let that spoil our fun! We had a blast! 🎂

As usual, I'm running a bit behind with this week's post, so let's get right on into it...shall we? Please join me as I link up with Sandra of Diary of a Stay At Home Mom and all the other lovely ladies that gather there on this week's Happy Homemaker Monday? 💗

Right now I am...

... Enjoying a cup of tea while working on this post. 

On the breakfast plate...

... this morning I enjoyed leftover Margarita Pizza from the weekend.

The weather...

... Hot and muggy. Right now it's 89 degrees with a heat index of 107. We're under a heat advisory until 9:00 p.m. and there is a chance of isolated thunderstorms overnight. The rest of the week promises to be hot, but not as hot as today.

On my reading pile...

Haven't had a lot of time to read this week, so am still pretty much where I was last week. Am reading Interpreting Our Heritage by Freeman Tilden, On The Banks of Plum Creek by Laura Ingalls Wilder, and The 'I Can Do This' Diet by Dr. Don Colbert.

On the menu this week...

On my 'to do' list...

In the craft basket...

... just keeping up with the temperature afghan.

Looking forward to this week...
