Happy Homemaker Monday


Happy Monday Friends ☀️ 

I can't believe how fast September has flown by! It was a lovely weekend around here. My son and his gf went out for a walk on Saturday afternoon and popped by here for a visit. We then ended up all going out for dinner and then came back here to play games. It was so fun. 😊 

I still haven't tackled outside Fall decorations, but all set in the house now. 🍁❤️  And my Packers won in an absolute nail biter last night! So yep, it was a good weekend!  How was yours? Are you ready for October yet? I heard them talking on the news about doing Christmas shopping extra early because some things may take extra time to be delivered. Yikes! I guess I better get working on my list. Lol

A little video of Ruby not amused by the baby bobcat visitor this morning:







PRAYER LIST:

Praying for peace, unity and healing for our world and our earth. For a complete end to the virus. For those in health care, first responders and so many professions that work to keep us healthy and safe. For special intentions

  1. It's really looking like Fall over there! I did finish my Fall decorating because we had a big group over yesterday and the porch had to be done!
    I still can't believe you have bobcats roaming around your house like that. The baby is adorable.
    I am so excited that Survivor is back on. I really missed it.

  2. Aw, I want to pick up the baby bobcat and pet it (though I know that would not in reality be a great idea, lol) Poor Ruby though, is she protecting you? Also, I'm glad to be out of Nutella so I can't be overly tempted after reading your tip. Still need to decorate for fall around here. Every time I have time, the house seems to be a wreck and I need to clean first which takes all my time. Maybe this week. Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday & rest of the week as well!

  3. Oh sweetie I am so envious of your fall color and decorations! Great pictures of it too! Snickering at your funny about pumpkin season - you are so right!! I'm so excited for you - my dream trip is going to Italy. I will be living vicariously through you! I have to try both of those life hacks too! I can't get Ruby's video to play, but I can imagine how much she doesn't like sharing "her" space with a cat of all things :snicker: Have a WONDERFUL rest of the week.

  4. I see some lovely Autumn colour coming through Carrie. It makes me nostalgic for the area of the Great Lakes - we were there two years ago! So much has changed, and going back is just not possible these days. I am loving your little bird among the pumpkins, your Fall decor always captivates me. That sign says it all 'love pumpkin season or you are wrong', lol. I will check my daughter is doing pumpkin love. It is the right thing to do. xxxx
