Happy Homemaker Monday - February 24, 2020

Greetings, Dear Ones! And Happy Monday! 💗

I trust that you had a great week and weekend and that you're up and at 'em this morning...ready, willing, and able to take on the challenges of a brand new week! 💪

Our week and weekend here fairly flew by in a blur of activity and somewhere along the way I lost a week. As of Friday night I honestly thought that we had two Sundays left in the month of February. Imagine how surprised I was to discover that fellowship Sunday was THIS week instead of next! 😲 With some last minute maneuvering we made it, but I sure wasn't prepared for it.

program. The topic was vertebrates.
As last week was very full and the week ahead promises more of the same, I'm going to get right on into this week's post. Won't you join me as I visit with Sandra and the other lovely ladies on Happy Homemaker Monday?

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! 💗
The weather...

Right now it's 44 degrees and the rains that we've had experienced all night (very heavy at times) are expected to continue throughout the day. The week ahead doesn't look too bad, though, considering it's the end of February going into the first of March. 

How I am feeling this morning...

... Well rested (we were in bed before 8:00 last night) and ready to get to work!

On my mind...

... family members and friends that have lost family members and experienced trouble this past week...some of which I've not even had time to see yet. I am hoping to rectify that within the next day or two.

On the breakfast plate...

... oat pancakes with fresh strawberries and a cup of Twinings Irish Breakfast tea

On my reading pile...

... am still working on Greater Health God's Way by Stormie Omartian and The Great North American Prairie: A Literary Field Guide (Stories From Where We Live) by Sara St. Antione (Editor). A little here and a little there and, eventually, they'll both get done. 😉

On the menu this week...

Monday - Homemade veggie pizza and salad
Tuesday - Spinach and Turkey Feta Burgers (recipe below), sweet potato fries, and salad
Wednesday - Oven-roasted chicken breast, mashed potatoes, and mixed vegetables
Thursday - Italian sausage and oven-roasted potatoes (freezer), and salad
Friday - Broiled salmon, baked potatoes, oven-roasted carrots, and salad
Saturday - John's night to cook
Sunday - Leftovers


This is my favorite way to enjoy burgers! They are not only tasty, but juicy! 😋

1 lb. 93/7 turkey burger
a handful of baby spinach leaves, chopped
2 oz. crumbled feta cheese
1 tsp. garlic powder
salt to taste
pepper to taste

Put about a half- to three-fourths-of an inch of water in a large skillet and let heat while you mix all ingredients together. After mixing ingredients, divide and form into four 3/4-inch thick patties and gently place in water in skillet. Cook, turning once, over medium heat until done through and water is gone.

Outside Our Front Door This Morning

Our Front Yard and Driveway
Looking around the house...

... Stuff is stewn here and there, Sunday morning's fellowship dishes are still piled in the kitchen sink, and the trash needs taken out. 
The house needs a thorough cleaning, which I plan on starting as soon as I get done with this post. 

Chore I'm not looking forward to today or this week...

... I can't think of anything that I'm not looking forward to, but I do have a very full week ahead, so won't be putting in as much time working at home as I'd like. Any extra time I do have this week will be devoted to cleaning and organizing the Van Gogh room (my office). 

To relax this week, I will...

... enjoy cups of hot tea, read, and, hopefully, have some down time to just do nothing. 

On my prayer list...

- President Trump, Vice-President Pence, and every other elected official in this country - that they would be convicted in their hearts of any wrong doing against the American people and be endowed with Biblical wisdom from on high at every turn
- For a great awakening in America and beyond
- For extended family members that have lost loved ones this past week
- For Jordan who was injured when the race car that he was working on fell on him - complete health and healing.

Well, Ladies, that's it for this week! I pray that each and every one of you have a lovely, productive, and great week ahead!

Until next time...
