Happy Homemaker Monday

Thanks to Sandra for hosting!

The weather in my neck of the woods:
Hot and dry. It is summer in TX, after all.

One of my simple pleasures:
Sliding into clean sheets after a long day.

On my bedside table:
Still trying to finish Eldest. Got a free iPod touch with Ron's new laptop. So I've been playing with that.

On my TV:
No TV here.

On the menu for tonight:
I have no idea. I should give that some thought.

On my To Do List:
Well, the dog didn't get shaved so I still need to do that. But I did get the schoolroom cleaned out! YAY!

New Recipe I tried last week:
I don't think we tried anything new.

In the craft basket:
I'm really wanting to make the crochet bag from Attic24 that Sandra also made. I need to find out how much yarn to buy. Sandra, can you let me know?

Looking forward to:
The last two weeks of July are more karate camp. I'm looking forward to that being OVER!

Homemaking Tip for this week:
Next time you grocery shop, pick up a rotisserie chicken or two (especially if they're on sale). It makes a great dinner after shopping and then you can make awesome chicken stock with the leftovers!

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Not one single favorite this week. But I'm really enjoying Jenn's posts of her photos from Jessica Sprague's free Photoshop class. I'm taking the same class as well!

Favorite photo from last week:

Lesson learned the past few days:
That I can do this. All of it.

On my Prayer List:
Fellow bloggers

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Psalm 23:6 Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.

Way to go getting your school room cleaned out. You are one step ahead of me!

You are making some real headway on your list for the summer. I don't know what happend to mine. Wait I never made one! I need to make one too. :)

I bought 4 of the ones you find at Walmart, is it bad that I can't remember what the thing of yarn is called? LOL

But anyway, I bought 4, one each of the different colors I was using and I still have almost half of each left. Surprisingly the project doesn't use that much yarn :)
