Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather in my neck of the woods:
Sunny and pleasant. The temperature is in the high 60's and it only suppose to get to around 83 today. My kind of weather!

One of my simple pleasures:
All the windows open and a pleasant breeze blowing through my home.

On my bedside table:
The Secret by Beverly Lewis

On my TV:

On the menu for tonight:
Not sure. I haven't made my weekly menu yet.

On my To Do List:
Clean Kitchen
Spend time outside, weeding and trimming bushes
Make grocery list and match coupons

New Recipe I tried last week:
Lemon Sponge Cake

In the craft basket:
Nothing yet. I finished the last baby quilt Friday and haven't started anything new.

Looking forward to:
Spending time outside enjoying the wonderful weather.

Homemaking Tip for this week:
To help prepare breakfast faster mix up all of your dry ingredients and wet ingredients the night before. The next morning mix them together. This really speeds things up and makes it so you don't have lots of dirty dishes to start the day.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Leanne's post What do You Hunger for?

Favorite photo from last week:

Lesson learned the past few days:
Not only pray for the things you desire, but also take the steps to make it happen.

On my Prayer List:
My husband and daughter

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
9 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened." Luke 11:9-10
