Happy Homemaker Monday - The Late Edition - October 14, 2019

Greetings, Dear Readers! ๐Ÿงก 

It's 10:00 p.m., Monday is nearly over, and I'm just now sitting down to work on this week's post. It's been a very busy day, to say the least, and there will be no dilly-dallying tonight. Short, sweet, and to the point! Let's get started...shall we? 

Won't you 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? ๐Ÿ’—

Right now I am... 

... just focusing on getting this post out before the clock strikes midnight. ๐Ÿ•›

On the breakfast plate...

... this morning I had French toast with sugar-free syrup and pumpkin spice tea

The weather...

... After some real up and down temperatures this week today was one of those perfect October days. At the moment it's 63 degrees and the full moon is absolutely gorgeous!

The week ahead doesn't look too bad, either.

... On my reading pile...

Other than daily Bible reading I haven't had time to read a single word and, if I have had time, it's been something for work or I simply haven't had the inclination. ๐Ÿ˜ž 

The books that I'm in the middle of right now are these...

My Father, Daniel Boone - The Draper Interviews with Nathan Boone edited by Neal O. Hammon and On The Banks of Plum Creek by Laura Ingalls Wilder

  1. Busy week for you! Those spider web pretzels look yummy! Have a great week!

    1. It has been a busy week, Jodi! I am...running a week behind...again! Thanks for stopping in! The children loved the spider web pretzels! I will see you again tomorrow! <3

  2. What a wonderful life you are living! Enjoy each day. Be blessed!
    Laura of Harvest Lane Cottage

    1. Thanks, Laura! It is wonderful...when I can slow down enough to enjoy it. I'm so glad we're going into late fall and winter. It's my slowest time of year. Blessings, my friend! I love and miss you! <3

  3. I think I needed to see your quote this week, something I need to remember as well. Hope you have a wonderful week!

    1. Amen, Jean! Hope you've had a good week, too. As you can see...I'm running behind...again! See you again tomorrow! <3

  4. Busy week for you and for me I am afraid. If I go into the sop I may not get out!

    1. I hear you! It's been super busy, but, finally!!! A day off to relax and catch up! I'm a week behind, but, hey! Better late than never! Right? Blessings! And thanks for stopping in! <3

  5. Spider web pretzel snacks? Is that chocolate drizzled around like the web? Cute idea.

    1. They are cute, Pamela, and the children loved them. I used CANDY MELTS white chocolate (artificial) candy discs. This time I piped it on in a circle and it worked really well. (Last time I slung it around with a fork...which didn't work so well.) I will post a picture tomorrow. Blessings! <3

  6. Sounds like you're off to a great start on a really busy week - hope it's a GREAT one.

    1. Thanks, Threesides! Super busy, but, yes, a great one! See you again tomorrow! Blessings! <3
