Happy Homemaker Monday

Hello Friends!

Well, as you can imagine by the last few weeks of bloggy silence, we arrived safe and sound in Arkansas and have been settling into our new home quite nicely! {Well, except for finding a snake in my bathroom this morning...but that's another post!}

I'm participating in the Happy Homemaker Monday journal prompts link up at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. Join us, if you can!

Looking out my window...

This is the view from my front window---a beautiful Rose of Sharon bush! It regularly attracts gorgeous butterflies and hummingbirds, including this butterfly with a damaged wing who visits daily.

I am thinking...

That tomorrow I will try to finish unpacking my kitchen and living room!

I am thankful...

I am thankful for this beautiful home Jamie chose for us! We are the only house on a forested cul-de-sac. There is lots of privacy and lots of wildlife!

One of my favorite things...

 Yesterday, my son Cainan's favorite blogger, Rosanna Pansino, was in Rogers for her baking line tour. I got up super early to be one of the first 300 to grab a ticket---then took Cainan and Lynzie out later in the afternoon to meet her and get a photo. They were so thrilled!

I am reading...

Last night I started Majestie: The King Behind the King James Bible by David Teems. Earlier this summer, I read a biography of Henry VIII and his six wives, followed by a biography of Elizabeth I. Now that I'm through with the Tudors, it's time to move on to the Stuarts!

I am hoping...
I am hoping to be finished unpacking and planning school by the end of the month so we can start up our school year in October!

In my kitchen...

Tonight in my kitchen I treated two little girls to some ice cream while their older siblings were at church with Daddy!

In my garden...

The kids discovered a composting set up back in the forested edge of the property. Super excited to learn all about how this works and begin preparing for our spring planting next year!

Tell me about your plans for this week---I'm so happy to be back home being a homemaker!


  1. this is an exciting time for you all...new beginnings!

  2. What a fun outing for your kids!! What a cute little house!! Have a great week!

  3. We have been living in our new house for almost a year now. We totally believe the Lord hand picked it for us! Can't wait to see more pictures of your new home.

  4. Oh Sarah how wonderful!! Your home is so pretty!! I love the color and the little porch and all of the beautiful, quietness!!! Everyone appears to approve from the looks of it! Congratulations - it looks like it will be perfect for you!

  5. Your house is lovely! Wishing you speedy unpacking and organizing - I do it every few years and the sooner the boxes are gone and everything is in its place, the better I feel.

    Have a great week!

  6. I didn't realize you were moving. It's been so long.... I, myself just had a huge life event/testimony. I just wrote about it, if you would like to read it. I will try to be a better friend. I do miss talking to you.

  7. Your home is beautiful! I wish I were strong enough to help you. God bless you all!
