Happy Homemaker Monday

Whew this is it! The last week of summer for our family. I am ready for a more structured schedule. My kids may not be, but I certainly am!

Weather: Its still hot around here. Mid 80's. Yes I know that compared to some that is not very hot, but for here, it is!!

On my reading pile: I am actually re-reading The Hunger Games series  since I just watched the movie over the weekend.

On my tv: LOL, watching Magnum P.I. on Netflix while I fold laundry (: Love that Tom Selleck!

On the menu for this week:
Monday: ham wraps with spinach, potato salad, and grapes & apple slices
Tuesday: we will be gone most of the day so I am going to put potatoes in the crockpot and have leftover mini meatloaves, corn on the cob
Wednesday: chicken stir fry
Thursday: spaghetti w/sausage, garlic bread and salad
Friday: pizza night
Saturday: not sure
Sunday: not sure

On my to do list:
*clip coupons/sort/file
*pack needed items for playgroup
*zoo activity sheet for kids

What I am creating: Our playgroup is headed to the zoo tomorrow so I want something fun for the kids to do like bingo. So I am working on that.

Homemaking tips: Do as much as you can the night before to prepare for the next day. I love starting the day with a clean slate. But if I know I have somewhere to go, I like to be ready...for example our playgroup is headed to the zoo. I know what I need to have and so if I prepare today, then I am able to get out that much quicker in the morning.

Looking around the house: hubby just got home from a run, one of my sons is ignoring me and not getting his daily chore done. Quiet and relaxed morning. I have to enjoy them while I can!!

From the camera: My son has borrowed one of my cameras and has taken HUNDREDS of pictures of his Lego creations. So I have just been using my little one. I love this picture of my son in the pool. He has no fat on his body so he gets a little colder in the pool then the rest of us (:

On my prayer list: family and friends, always.

"From what might appear to you to be small choices, the Lord will lead you to the happiness you want. Through your choices He will be able to bless countless others."

Is that the face Connor made when he found out it was the last week of summer?? Poor guy. I'm sure you'll all enjoy being back on a schedule. Or maybe you're the only one who will, but still ... happy last week of summer!
