Happy Homemaker Monday




Happy Monday my Friends ~

I hope you had a lovely weekend. Ours was filled with lots of hockey as we were out of town for Annie's hockey tourney. Her team didn't place that great but they played hard and won their final game 6-0! Annie scored a goal too. :) 

I plan to do Annie's bday post with recipes tomorrow, as I never got to it last week. Annie ended up staying home 2 days from school, last week, due to being sick. She actually only played part of her tourney due to still feeling crummy. She has had more energy now and hoping she's finally kicking it!  


















THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:

Cloudy for the most part but nice in the 60's. Looks like maybe 70's most of the week with some rain maybe Thursday or Friday











ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:

Toast with lemon curd, pear,  hazelnut coffee













RIGHT NOW I AM:

Listening to George Ezra station and working on my planner 











AS I LOOK OUTSIDE MY WINDOW

I just saw a deer come across our back yard and run into the woods. Ruby's barking from the window probably didn't help :P













AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE:

Fairly tidy. Still some things from the trip this weekend to put away

Annie's soccer and hockey practices. Soccer games. Groceries and errands. Meal for FIL and visit MIL. Make some appointments. Plan to tackle more fully my craft room/office. Hospice volunteering.

SOMETHING INTERESTING I WATCHED 

I haven't watched any new movies or anything new online. But I wanted to talk about how wonderful the royal wedding was - did you watch? I thought it was all so beautiful and loved the mix of British tradition and American parts in the service. I thought Meghan looked gorgeous and absolutely adored her dress and veil - so angelic. And I LOVED when the choir sang Stand by Me as that song hits home for me and my "ginger". It was the first song we ever danced to in high school and we had that song at our wedding reception too. Just so fun to watch a fairy tale (or at least this hopeless romantic sure things it is!) Here are some pics they just released today from Harry and Meghan's day:



They look so happy, don't they? This is one of my favorite pics I saw from this weekend:



Stunning ;) 













WHAT I AM CREATING AT THE MOMENT

I need to finish cleaning out my office/craft space. I have more projects to work on that I need to find the rest of my materials for. I also have a fun project I'm starting as a future wedding gift for a relative. Plus, one top secret project that I may not be able to share for quite a while - but I'm SO excited about it. Sorry to tease but just has to stay under wraps yet  (no changes here)


















NEW RECIPE I WANT TO TRY THIS WEEK:


Not sure? Maybe something new for the holiday weekend coming up? Eyeing up a recipe for milky way brownies....hmmm - could be too dangerous :P















TIP OF THE WEEK:










FROM THE CAMERA:
Our poor sick hockey girl in action (when she was up for playing this weekend). Coach Daddy in the background on the job












Got home from the hockey weekend last night and it was a beautiful one on the bay. Sat out and enjoyed it with Ruby and you can see a person canoeing between the trees to Ruby's left. We get a lot of folks coming into our bay to fish, kayak, and canoe




And noticed my daffs up last night so had to pick a few to bring some sunshine inside ;) 



Ruby enjoying the bay this morning (& a bunny) out the window






Signs of it warming up around here - the dandelions are back!!

  1. It's looking so pretty over there!
    Sorry Annie was sick and even missed part of the game. Hope no one else catches it.
    We were our of town so I haven't seen the wedding, but I DVR'd it, so will be watching parts of it soon!

  2. Sure hope Annie keeps feeling better and better as the week progresses. I love how your view is looking with all that grass and pretty water in the background - Spring has certainly sprung there. I also heard that it's dangerous for the person to actually use the phone while it's plugged in.

    I loved Meghan's dress too! So simple and elegant all at the same time.

    I LOVE your inspiration this week!!!!!!!!!! I hope you have a WONDERFUL week.

  3. Spring has arrived! Your daffodils are so pretty, and you have more in one vase than I grow in a year. Obviously they are unsuited to the tropics but I like to try. Your bay is so pretty, and it is cute to watch a kayak. I loved the royal wedding too for all the reasons you have observed. They look so wonderfully happy and in love, which is the best part of all. Lot of sweet touches referencing the USA, and Diana. Doria looked absolutely brilliant too. xo

  4. Hope your daughter feels better! What's with all this sudden summer sickness? It's making the rounds over here as well. UGH. I wanted to get up early and watch the wedding but didn't quite make it, love seeing the photos as well. Hmm...I'm pretty bad about using my phone while it's on the charger, guess I better work on changing that. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  5. I watched the Royal wedding too and I really enjoyed it. In fast, I recorded two different channels because I couldn't decide which one would be better. And I watched them both.

  6. Hi, Carrie! I'm sorry that I'm responding to this week's HHM post so late, but have been out of town and just got in last night. I enjoyed reading this week's HHM post and hope that Annie is feeling better now. Loved the pics and the thoughts you shared on the royal wedding. Like you, I am a hopeless romantic. It would if Diana could have been there to watch both of her boys grow up, get married, and enjoy her grandchildren. Have a great weekend! <3
