Happy Homemaker Monday


Thanks to Sandra for hosting!

The weather in my neck of the woods:
Cloudy and not too hot, but very humid.

One of my simple pleasures:
Checking our garden for the latest treasures.

On my bedside table:
Kleenex...and Eldest. Still.

On my TV:
No TV here.

On the menu for tonight:
I wish I knew. Any suggestions?

On my To Do List:
I'd like to say I've shaved the dog, but I haven't, so that would be lying. Now the summer is too far along. She'll just have to suffer along, otherwise she'd freeze come winter. Sorry, JoJo!

New Recipe I tried last week:
Did I try anything new?

In the craft basket:
Going to buy my yarn today to start my crochet bag.

Looking forward to:
Next week!

Homemaking Tip for this week:
If they sell it in the grocery store, you can probaby make it cheaper and healthier at home. I'm making my own bread, pickles, desserts, baking mixes, and I'm about to try homemade mayo.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Oh my, so many good ones!

Favorite photo from last week: Tortoise at the Dallas Zoo. He was very busy so we tried not to disturb him for long.

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:
Luke 8:12-15 "The seed that fell on the hard path represents those who hear the message, but then the Devil comes and steals it away and prevents them from believing and being saved. 13 The rocky soil represents those who hear the message with joy. But like young plants in such soil, their roots don't go very deep. They believe for a while, but they wilt when the hot winds of testing blow. 14 The thorny ground represents those who hear and accept the message, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the cares and riches and pleasures of this life. And so they never grow into maturity. 15 But the good soil represents honest, good-hearted people who hear God's message, cling to it, and steadily produce a huge harvest."

I love the Tortoise pic, love it :)

Maybe for dinner you could make my Sweet and Spicy Bacon Chicken? LOL It's really good and super easy and I'm sure you have all the ingredients on hand.

Have a wonderful day :)
