Happy Homemaker Monday 02.20.17


Good Afternoon!!  Celebrating President’s Day with a nice 4-day weekend!!  And it was nice indeed.  I planned myself a me-time getaway, and it was absolutely wonderful!!  I didn’t go far, just stayed at one of the Hilton hotels about 30 minutes away.  It was relaxing, quiet and oh so needed.  When I checked in, the guy at the desk asks if I would be staying alone, and I was like, Oh, yes, and told him it was my me-time getaway.  He said when he worked at a hotel in Florida, a lady would check in the same time every week, and he finally asked her what it was that brought her to the hotel so frequently, and she told him it was her time away from her husband and kids, it was her Calgon moment. She would order food in and spend time in the Jacuzzi.  That must have been one happy lady, if she was able to do that on a weekly basis, lol 😀 I still have today off, then we’re back at it on Tuesday, but silently counting down to Spring Break. 😉  Hope everyone is doing well, here’s to another week!!

Linking-up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.






Here is another one of my favorite family recipes, I am the 4th generation to make this cake.  It’s simple yet so delicious, perfect with coffee.

Milnot Coffee Cake

3 cups flour

3 t baking powder

½ lb. butter or margarine

1 can Milnot (Evaporated Milk)

2 cups sugar

2 t Almond extract

4 eggs

Pinch of salt

Cinnamon and Sugar mixture

Blend flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and butter until crumbly.  Take out 2 good sized handfuls (about 2 cups) and set aside.  To the rest add eggs, milk and almond flavor.  Pour into greased 9 x 13 inch pan and sprinkle crumbs you set aside.  Then sprinkle top with cinnamon and sugar.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.


Our library also has an Adult Game night.  When my mom was at the book club meeting, she found out that this month the Game night was for Scrabble.  So her and I went.  We played with two other ladies, one that I knew from the Adult Coloring Café, and the other lady my mom knew, neither of them had ever played Scrabble before.  It was fun, my mom actually won at our table.  There weren’t any prizes, but it was fun to get out and play, as well as chat with friends.





This pic was taken Monday, February 17, 2014, our second snowy winter here.  I have really missed the snow this winter 😦

  1. Hey Sweetheart!
    Playing catch up around here. My kiddos had Friday off and our now on break all this week. Looking forward to next Monday! Lol No – love time with them, but trying to entertain my Annie even though she’s had a Friend stay over a bit too. 😉

    I’d gladly have sent you some of our snow – but now it’s almost all melted! Which is absolutely cray cray for the northwoods! I’m actually LOVING IT – ain’t gonna lie. 😛 Although, cold supposed to start back over next few days and I did see more s-word in our future forecast. I knew it was too good to last.

    I love your funny! So dang true!! And that coffee cake sounds de-lish!! But that mandala video – totally amaze balls! I want to play with that software or whatever it was!! Wouldn’t that be such a fun creative outlet. I was absolutely enthralled and didn’t want the video to end. So cool!

    And your inspiration = perfection!

    Blessings! I’m off to catch up on your latest story. xoxo
