Happy Homemaker Monday
It is amazing how fast a week can get away from you! Sad I missed the last week. But here we go...
The weather in my neck of the woods: hot and humid, just like every day!
A simple pleasure I enjoy: getting a new itune :)
On my bedside table: a book of word searches, ipod, pen, chapstick
On my tv: a Perry Mason movie (my husband loves to tease me about watching "old people shows"
On the menu for tonight:
enchiladas, corn bread, steamed vegi's ( I am going to make 2 pans worth and freeze one of both the enchiladas and bread!)
On my to do list:
4 phone calls that need to be made
whole house clean up
re-do my kids chore/routine charts since school is starting next week
send a card to my sister for her anniversary
New recipe I tried this week: I don't know if it is a "new recipe" but I did make my own pizza(for the first time!!) using Sandra's pizza dough recipe
In the craft basket: nothing, but wheels are turning for a Christmas card idea
Looking forward too: school starting next week, and my husbands job turn over finally being over
Homemaking tip of the week: I am really bad about keeping my car cleaned out. So every time I get out, I always take 5 things with me. Garbage or items to be brought in. If my kids are with me I make them do it too!! It makes it a lot quicker to clean up.
Favorite blog post from the week: I have been reading a series on menu planning on the website Like Mother Like Daughter. It has been really helpful!
Favorite photo of the week: at the top! My two youngest watching Clone Wars on my bed
Lesson learned the past few days: I am on facebook a lot and some of my friends from school have been struggling with the "fathers of their children". I learned that I need to be grateful for my husband. He works long hours and that is hard, but he is doing it for us. I am so glad that I have him in my and my childrens lives.
On my prayer list: family and friends. Ecspecially my kiddos right now as there are lots of big changes coming their way!
Devotionals/scriptures: A friend quoted this for me, " Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor in the morning, the devil says "Oh crap, she's up!"
Have a great week everyone!
