Happy Homemaker Monday
Ooh, very excited to find fun new meme's! This is my first time! I know I am a little late so please forgive me! Here goes...
Weather in my neck of the woods: I live on the island of Guam. We are currently in the rainy season! So it is wet, grey and windy!
One of my simple pleasures: going to my inbox and finding an email from my husband (he is out of town right now!)
On my bedside table: does this mean what I am reading? Or is it what is on my table? I'll just do both, book I am reading "The Sane Woman's Guide to a Large Family". On my table...lamp, clock, binky, a burp cloth
On my tv: nothing! Tonight I will be watching the movie "New In Town"
On the menu for tonight: stroganoff, peaches, carrots, toast
On my to do list: put laundry away, clean up kitchen (again!)
New Recipe I tried last week: Chicken Cordon Bleu casserole. Very good!
In the craft basket: **big sigh** nothing
Looking forward to: a nice quiet evening
Homemaking tip of the week:I have an almost 4 week old baby, and I find myself on the couch or rocking chair a lot. With my husband being gone, I find myself sending my 4 older kids to fetch a binky, or a diaper, wipes etc. So I got a basket and filled it with: diapers, wipes, binky, burp cloth, extra outfit, extra onesie, socks, chapstick, a pen, notebook. Every night I look at what has been used and than I restock. It has made it so much easier to have everything right at my fingertips!
Favorite blog post of the week: Hmmm, I am not even sure! I will have to pay more attention next week!
Favorite photo from the last week: It is at the top!
Lesson learned from the last week: With a newborn and my husband gone I have been really tired. I mean REALLY tired. But it doesn't give me an excuse to be grumpy with my older kids. It is not their fault.
On my prayer list: always my husband and kids
Devotionals, scriptures or key verses:once again I will have to pay more attention. Right now I just keep finding that the ones that mean the most are about relying on the Lord and not myself
