Happy Homemaker Monday (on a Tuesday)


HAPPY HOMEMAKER MONDAY




Hello beautiful Friends ~

I apologize being late this week. I'm fighting covid and it's kinda like a roller coaster. One day I feel pretty good and the next I feel crummier. Hopefully not too many more days of it and I'll feel more like myself.  Even though I'm a day behind....I thought I would still share and catch up with all of you. 

Earlier last week I went to visit Matt where he lives because he had the day off. He showed me all around his area. We went and grabbed goodies from the grocery store because he wanted to cook for me. We had a wonderful dinner! Then, I re-taught him how to play cribbage. We snuggled in and watched a movie and it was an all around perfect day. He is healing so many places in my heart and I swear I like him more with every day that goes by. ♥️ 

Then he was going to come up and visit this past weekend and we were going to watch the Packer game together and he was going to hang out around here. But I woke up Saturday feeling sick. And Sunday I tested positive for covid. He said he wished he could come up and take care of me - but I told him I'd be fine and I would not be okay getting him sick. So we were on the phone with one another during the whole Packer game (even if I sounded like a frog - Lol). Unfortunately the game didn't turn out how we would have liked, but it was still a nice way to share time from afar. 

So needless to say, for this week life is remaining quiet and restful. I had covid back in December 2020 before there were vaccines. And being fully vaccinated this time around - I can assure you it has been a much nicer ride with less severe symptoms, and for that I'm grateful! It would sure be nice if we could get rid of covid completely though!! 
















THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:




It has been FREEZING around here lately!















ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:

piece of toast with homemade raspberry jam, coffee
















ON MY TO DO LIST:

I hate that I'm missing Annie's hockey this week, and no working in hospice obviously either. 😢 I know I just need to rest, quarantine and kick this covid to the curb!

















AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE   


In the afternoon I usually feel the most peppy and keep up with daily chores around here to keep it tidy. Sun is streaming in and giving nice warmth to the house. ☀️ Ruby is lying in a sunbeam 😊

TIPS OR SOMETHING TO SHARE:

may need to try this while being stuck home a sickie






















FROM THE CAMERA:


My Grandpa died when I was 9 years old. And that was my first experience with death and remember being so sad and, I would say, even intrigued by it all. Shortly after I wrote this poem and sent to my Grandma. My Aunt found it the other day and sent this. It's crazy to me that was about 40 years ago already. 





Hanging out watching the game with my guy - covid style. Lol










At Matt's place last week. He made us pesto pasta with toasted pine nuts, caesar salad, Italian meatballs...and an appetizer to start of artichoke with a curry dip. It as all SO YUMMY! 

















Winter days and sickie moments around home










PRAYER LIST:

Prayers for gratitude and thankfulness for so many blessings. I pray for an end to the virus. For peace and unity everywhere. For health care workers, first responders and all those who work so hard to take care of others. I pray for anyone isolated, feeling alone, in pain or fear - that God comfort them and bring them healing and peace. For Matt's Uncle and Aunt. For a friend recovering from surgery.













PRAYER, INSPIRATIONAL QUOTE OR DEVOTIONAL:


I hope you all stay healthy and cozy Friends! 🙏

  1. I am so sorry you have Covid, Carrie - and it is the second time! Poor you, it sounds wretched. I admit I am very afraid of catching it because I am in the vulnerable older age group, therefore we have to be very isolated right now while it rips through our community. So lovely you have a special new friend in Matt. Get Well Soon xoxox

  2. I'm so sorry that you have covid again! I've been feeling fairly safe since I had it and am vaccinated, but I know people are getting it - like you. Praying you feel better soon.
    I'm so happy for you with Matt in your life. :)
    That poem is so sweet.
    PS - I had toast and homemade raspberry jam for breakfast this morning too.

  3. Oh, I'm so sorry you have COVID and again. Prayers for you to heal and feel better quickly. It seems to be everywhere again. Also, I'm sorry that we aren't going to get to see that GB vs KC super bowl. Next year? Please rest up and take care of yourself, my friend.
