Happy Homemaker 2021-05-10

Good morning! Happy belated Mother's day.

Had a factime reunion with my parents, brothers and sister on Sunday morning (improvised which was great).

My husband worked late on Friday night and all day Saturday.  Saw the grandchildren 1 hour Friday night and 2 hours Sunday night.  Usually I have Xavier most of the weekend.  Really miss him when he's not here.  On the other hand, did quite a few things in the house.

Decluttering:  Sold dd's white-wicker living room set (children's size) on Marketplace - neither she nor daughter-in-law wanted it.  My huband gave away another children's desk to neighbor (was in mother in law's house).  There is an offer on her house and should be signed and officially sold on June 1st.

Today our curfew is going from 8:00 to 9:30 pm, and some non-essential businesses are opening up after 5 weeks (not restaurants or gyms).  High school chidren can go back to school part-time 

Let's join Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom .

Quote of the week 


  1. Your paintings are so beautiful! I wish I could paint, but I've tried many times over the years and it's just not one of my skills. I can't even paint a wall! I'll just stick to xstitch! Gorgeous photo of you and the baby. Enjoy this week!

  2. So glad that you are starting to open up after closing. We are in stage 3 and things are getting back to normal. Have a blessed week.

  3. Happy Belated Mother's Day to you as well! Always love when you share your artwork with us. Hope you have a wonderful week and more opens up to you all soon.

  4. Glad to hear some of the restrictions due to Covid are finally being lifted for you all. Hopefully it can stay that way.

    I just love your last paintings, with the daisy's, so so pretty.

    Hope you have a great week.

  5. I'm sorry you are still dealing with so many restrictions, but glad to hear some things are opening up.

    Love the photo with Anne-Elizabeth, what a beautiful name.

    Have a wonderful rest of week.
