Happy Homemaker Monday - August 26, 2019

Greetings, Dear Ladies! HAPPY MONDAY! 💗 

How was your week and weekend? Ours here was good!

I've got to be out of here shortly, so this is going to be a sweetened, condensed version this week. 😆

Libby and I had a great visit on Tuesday and the "In A Grasshopper's World" library program was a huge success on Wednesday. I worked Thursday and Friday and, on Saturday, I did a complete food inventory and cleaned out the fridge, freezer, and deep freeze. It was a major undertaking, but, one that was well worth it! Now I know what I have on hand again and will menu plan accordingly. I will share more on this at a later date. Saturday evening we had supper with our next-to-the-youngest son and his family and, after church on Sunday, I worked in the afternoon.

Right now I am...

From the camera...

I have a story for you. I was on my way to the library Wednesday morning and was held up at the train crossing on Hill Street. I love trains and was watching this one go by like I've done countless trains before. I reached in my purse, grabbed my phone, fumbled to bring up my camera settings, opened my car door, and snapped a quick pic of the moving train. In Casey's parking lot a few minutes later, I opened my photos to see how my photo turned out and was shocked to discover THIS!!! What are the chances of this happening??? 😲

Well, Ladies, that's it for this week! I pray that each and every one of you have a blessed and beautiful week ahead! And I'll see you again next week! 💗

Until Next Time...
