Happy Homemaker Monday

On my bedside table:

On my TV:
Little People, Big World

On the menu for tonight:
Spaghetti, Salad, Bread

On my To Do list:
Clean Kitchen
Paint some of my treasures, if time

New recipe I tried last week:
No new recipe tried last week. I hope to have some time to play in the kitchen this week.

In the craft basket:
Learning to crochet

Looking forward to:
Painting a cabinet for my bathroom.

Homemaking Tip for this week:
When browning beef make extra for the freezer. It is great to be able to make quick tacos, spaghetti or for use on pizza.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Didn't have much time on the computer last week.

Favorite photo of the week:

My Mother's Day gift. It has handprints on craft paper to wrap around the base of the milk can, they ran out of time to get it attached. My hubby is very creative!

Lesson learned the past few days:
Life can be crazy no matter where you live. If I really want to live a simple life it is up to me to make decisions to make it simple. It is a daily challenge to find the right balance.

On my Prayer List:
My husband & daughter
Brian, my brother-in-law

Devotional, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
"Despite all new inventions and modern designs, fads and fetishes, no one has yet invented, or will ever invent, a satisfying substitute for one's own family."
-- Dr. Stuart E. Rosenberg in his book, The Road to Confidence
