Happy Homemaker Monday


Thanks to Sandra for hosting!

The weather in my neck of the woods:
It's only supposed to be 85 deg. but it's gonna be humid.

One of my simple pleasures:
Listening to my children have innocent and fun conversation.

On my bedside table:

On my TV:
No TV here.

On the menu for tonight:
Teriyaki chicken and edamame

On my To Do List:
Dentist appt for youngest. Costco and grocery shopping.!

New Recipe I tried last week:
We bought a Vita-Mix at the home show yesterday and had all kinds of different smoothies for dinner last night.

In the craft basket:
Both handles are done, but I did not pay attention the keeping the right tension in my yarn. Now one is longer than the other. I'll probably have to make another one. LOL

Looking forward to:
More photos to share this week!

Homemaking Tip for this week:
I can't stress the beautiful simplicity of making a menu. Every week that I do goes much more smoothly at dinnertime.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Once again, Julia at Our Simple Life captured my imagination with her lovely post about summer.

Favorite photo from last week:

Lesson learned the past few days:
That I can do this. All of it. (Are you tired of this lesson yet? I must tell myself everyday that I can do this. There is always something that Satan will use to defeat me. But in Christ, I CAN do this...all of it.)

On my Prayer List:
Fellow bloggers

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Joshua 24:15 But if you are unwilling to serve the Lord, then choose today whom you will serve...But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.

Okay - tooooo funny. Guess what I bought on Friday?????? Yes, a vitamix...I have been wanting one forever and the best deal I found was at a roadshow at Sam's last week. We used it about 6-8 times over the weekend already. I knew we'd get a ton of use out of it as we have green smoothies every day -I'm excited to try soup today for lunch. We'll have to swap recipes! The crepes are good - did that last night! I also canned salsa over the weekend using it.

Have I mentioned yet how much I like the photo in your header? It always makes me smile.

Never heard of the kitchen gadget, will go google it later.

Have a great week!

Can you expand upon making dinner go more smoothly? I am having such a time keeping the boy at the table to eat more than two bites!! I need a belted chair to strap him down.

My kids playing nicely together and talking: priceless!

Thanks for your appreciation of my summer post. There are just some of those days... Weather finally broke today and dropped 20 degrees. I am all smiles.

Thanks for reminding me about how nice it is to make a menu. I've let that go lately and really miss it!
