Speaking of 'bout those Chiefs???
While it's true that I've never been a huge fan of football, I am a GIGUNDO fan of Kansas City (it's home) and the Chiefs are our hometown!!! I am so proud of those Kansas City Chiefs! 😊 💓🏈

(That's the first football game we've watched since 1994 when Joe Montana was still on the team; we did, however, shut the half-time show off.) 😳🤮🙄

Ironically, I had not been in the shed where my dad stored my mother's things after she passed away since moving in here three and a half years ago (Mom has been gone, going on, fifteen years and Dad on four) and, of all days! We worked on the carport yesterday afternoon and we opened that shed to see if there was room in the shed to store stuff and discovered THIS...

Chiefs Couch Doorstop
It is a miniature Chiefs couch doorstop that my mom made YEARS ago (inside the bottom of the couch is a brick...that's what give it its weight). It's in bad shape (the material is rotten), but of all the days to discover it! Likely the only Chiefs thing on the property (that I know of anyway) and on THE day that the Chiefs were playing in the Super Bowl for the first time in fifty years! Amazing! 😲

Okay...enough about all of that. Let's join Sandra and the other ladies at Happy Homemaker Monday and take a look at the week ahead, shall we?

Happy Homemaker Monday! 💗
The weather...

Yesterday was gorgeous...73 degrees and sunny; today promises to be nice, too...69 degrees, but windy with a chance of rain this afternoon. The week ahead doesn't look bad at all.

How I am feeling this morning...

... Great! Its Monday (my favorite day of the week) and the sun is shining. I'm ready to get on with it and get some stuff done! 😄

On my mind...

... Thinking about and planning the day and week ahead out and praying over friends and family members that just lost their dad, grandpa, son, and brother.  

On the breakfast plate...

... An egg, fresh veggie, cheese, and sprout omelet made with sprouts that I sprouted myself. 

Egg, Fresh Veggie, Cheese, and Sprout Omelet

While out and about visiting the Amish and Mennonite stores on Wednesday (stocking up on dry goods and spices), we decided to stop in at a little herb shop in Butler. While there I got a sprouting jar and a bag of alfalfa seeds. This was my first time of experimenting with them and my experiment turned out to be a complete success! (And the sprouts are delicious!) 😋

Looking around the house...

... I worked Friday and Saturday, worked outside all afternoon yesterday, and watched the game last night, so, needless to say, I haven't done a thing to the house in days. Stuff is strewn about here, there, and yonder, there are dishes in the sink, and the laundry needs won't take long to set everything to rights, so I will work on that later today.

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

... I can't think of anything that I'm not looking forward to, so I will tell you what I'm most looking forward to this week, and that is washing windows. I had planned on doing that yesterday, but didn't get to it. Hopefully, I will get to that today before the rain starts.

To relax this week, I will...

... enjoy cups of hot tea, read, walk, and spend time with family and friends.

On my prayer list...

- President Trump, Vice-President Pence, and every other official in this country at every level - that they would seek God's wisdom and that their eyes and ears would be open to the truth of God's Holy Word.
- For a spiritual awakening in America and beyond
- Friends and family members are suffering health issues, pain, and loss this morning.
