A Well-Versed Woman Can Fight Any Battle

Happy Homemaker Monday

I am joining in with Sandra at Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday!

Hello, Sisters! I hope that you had a good week. Mine was really rough. My cat, Sammy, has been sick, as I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. On Thursday, I was positive he wouldn't make it. And on Friday, he fell on his side, not moving. I walked away from my computers (work from home) wrapped him in a blanket and rocked him for over an hour, just waiting for him to pass. But he didn't. For the first 45 minutes his eyes weren't blinking, he wasn't moving at all, and his breathing was super shallow and fast. A couple of times I swear I heard him take his last breath, but then he'd start up again. Then after an hour of that, he began to wriggle and I let him out and he walked away! After his brush with death, he began eating and drinking again, using the bathroom, purring when we pet him, and doing some of the things he did before he got sick (laying in the sun, looking out the screen at birds, etc). Over the weekend he's been eating solid food again and he's gained a little weight back. I know he's not out of the woods, but we will see what the vet says. If he lives, I give all the credit to God. I prayed so hard for this little guy. He's been so loyal to me for 10 years. Before he got sick, he followed me everywhere I went. He "worked" with me, slept at my feet, and even waited outside the bathroom! If he doesn't pull through I'm going to be so heartbroken.

On with Happy Homemaker Monday!


HOT! We have 3 more days of close to 90 before it drops back down into the mid-upper 70s again. Several days of thunderstorms too.

*** Right now I am ***

I am trying to stay cool. We made it to 88 today! My son put the window air conditioners in, but those are just in the bedrooms. I have another coming for my office. The cats have a ceiling fan and a box fan - or they can come stay in my room if they are smart!



*** Thinking and pondering ***

I'm on staycation next week. I hope the weather is decent. Just some family time, final edits on my book, and spring cleaning.


*** How I am feeling ***

Meh. I need to start eating healthier, drinking water, moving. All. the. Things.



*** On the breakfast plate ***



*** On the lunch plate ***

Mac n cheese     


*** On the dinner plate ***

Loose hamburgers, pasta salad, baked beans and corn on the cob

*** What I am wearing***

A summer nightgown. Put it on around 6 p.m.


*** On my reading pile ***

I'm reading Mother Daughter Murder Night. You can read about all that I am reading, buying, borrowing, and getting for free in The Sunday Book Report,

I just started reading "Jesus the King" by Tim Keller. It's been recommended by a few people.


*** On my TV this week ***

Youtube - Mostly just my favorites right now

Criminal Minds

Nancy Grace



*** Looking around the house ***

It's getting dark as a thunderstorm is looming. The cats are all lying around trying to reserve their energy in this heat. LOTS of fans lol Flowers inside and out. Green plants. Touches of yellow.


*** To do list *** 

I've decided to share my morning routine here! It has taken me a long time to do this daily. I write it down in my daily planner too! I'm working on my night routine now. (Some things I don't list that are automatic)

  • Face

  • Lips

  • Moisturize

  • Cats (food and fresh water)

  • Meds

  • Daily Plan - gratitude list and prayer

  • Yoga

  • Grace (Bible reading plan, it comes with questions and daily video)

  • Morning Pages (I write 2-3 pages of just off the cuff anything stuff)

  • Hello, Morning (Podcast with a short prayer, deep breaths, ask God about your day)

  • Devotion for the Busy (Spotify)

  • Sermon Joyce Meyer, Steven Furtick, Priscilla Shirer, etc

  • Insulin (for my cat)

  • At my desk for work at 830

*** What I am creating ***

Just finished a new printable. It's for a more in-depth Bible study following the WOMEN acronym. You can take a look below!


*** Devotional, Prayers, Bible Verses ***

I'm reading in Isaiah, Psalms, 2 Kings.

Hello dear Sherry!

Biggest prayers and hugs sent for sweet Sammy! My Ruby has been the same kind of furry companion to me (she's 12) and I think about how heart broken I'll be one day over her too. I get that pain - they are family. 🙏🏻

I've never thought about writing out my AM routine - but I like that idea.

I sure hope you get lovely weather for your staycation too! Blessings. xo
