Happy Homemaker Monday


Thanks to Sandra for hosting!

The weather in my neck of the woods:
Glorious! It's been raining for several days and the temps are awesome! Lots of windows open here!

One of my simple pleasures:
Listening to the rain from my comfortable couch.

On my bedside table:

On my TV:
No TV here.

On the menu for tonight:
Not sure. Thinking about trying one of the soup recipes for our Vita-Mix. It's finally the right kind of weather.

On my To Do List:
Lunch with a good friend today. Maddy's first art class tomorrow. Bowling on Wednesday and then the dentist on Thursday. Whew!

New Recipe I tried last week:
Haven't tried anything new lately.

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:
Finally finishing up with sharing our trip to Waco with y'all.

Homemaking Tip for this week:
Make time to visit Carrie at Farming on Faith. She has lots of great homemade cleaner recipes. As I run out of commercially made items here at home, I'm trying more and more and loving them!

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Sorry to say no time for much blog reading. I had to hit the "mark all as read" button on my reader this morning. Over 100 posts! Goodness!

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.

Love the Joshua verse - that's a favorite around here. I am going to have to check out that website about the cleaners. I am running out of the ones we have and have intended to make a transition as well.

I'm loving a lot of the soup recipes, so glad you get a chance to try. We make ice cream almost every day for a snack! :0

Thanks for thinking of me in your thoughts today!

This is the first time I have done homemaker monday but I am enjoying reading all these new blogs. I know how you feel in saying "I can do this". Sometimes you have to say it more than others.

Amy said...

Great photo. I know you can make it through your busy week.

Lisa Anne said...

I love your header photo of the kids running on the hay. Amazing. Visiting from SITS, off to read more of your posts!

Mary said...
