Homemaker's Journal: Monday, November 18, 2019

Is it Monday already? This last week went by too quickly. I'm back again with another Monday journal entry to give you a peek into our daily lives. Joining Sandra over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for Happy Homemaker Monday. 

THE WEATHER THIS WEEK...

Currently it is 45 degrees and cloudy. Rain is expected for this evening. Highs will reach the low 60s this week, but other than that it is another chilly week in the South. No snow or ice is expected for us here, but I am keeping those who live in the Northeast part of the country in my prayers.

AROUND THE HOME...

The kitchen is mostly clean but we have yet to start on the laundry. We're keeping warm by the fire in the living room and the baby is in the swing, snug as a bug. My clothes have cold and wet patches from the baby spitting up on me. I'd change, but she's just going to do it again. This is my life now.

AGENDA FOR TODAY...

Homeschool lessons, laundry, get an early start on the falafel batter and tahini sauce so it can chill in the fridge. Piano lessons are this afternoon. If I feel up to it, we may make a trip to the library.


A PEEK INTO MY DAY...
