A Well-Versed Woman Can Fight Any Battle

Happy Homemaker - Tuesday

I'm joining in with Happy Homemaker Monday with Sandra at Diary of a SAHM

We ended up having to put my cat to sleep last week. I am still heartbroken. He was my sweet baby, but he was suffering. I miss him so much. He was doing so much better for a few days, but then all of a sudden he took a turn for the worse. The next day I had a vet come to my house and we did it here. I didn't want Sammy to be terrified his final couple of hours cooped up in a box, riding in the car (which he hated) and then in a waiting room. I'm sad.

I started my "staycation" Saturday and of course being the old lady that I am, partially dislocated my knee putting my pants on! I could barely walk the first day - but today (Tuesday) I can get around carefully with my brace on.

Not too much. I'm in vacation mode.

Left knee is improving but still swelling up. Right hip aching because I am putting more weight on that side due to the knee.

*** On my reading pile ***

Last week I finished "Mother Daughter Muder Night" It was really good and not what I thought it would be. It was mostly about 3 generations of women working together to solve a murder. Their relationship is the highlight of the books - well that and the setting!

Just about to finish the book of Isaiah in the Bible.


*** On my TV this week ***

Criminal Minds (new season next month!)

48 Hours

Days of Our Lives

YouTube videos

I want to rewatch Cranford and Lark Rise to Candleford because an online book club is reading both of those books in the coming months and I want to read them!

*** Looking around the house *** 

I purchased a new rug and a couch cover. I am not going to buy new furniture until we move!

*** To do list *** 


Writing group most days

Pay bills

Bible study

Art Class

Revelation study online

Write my 2 new pen pals

*** What I am creating ***

I did a couple of pages in my art journal this week. I'm about to start an online Ruth study so I will be making printables for that.


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

Hello my Lovely!

Sorry I'm so late visiting. I finally found your blog. Lol

I sure hope your knee feels better! I've so been there before. Ugh!

I know I have those Lark Rise videos somewhere - I need to find them and watch too.

Blessings on your weekend ahead. xo
