Happy Homemaking Monday

The weather in my neck of the woods:
Very nice! It is cool and will only be about 80* today. There has been a fall teaser and I am so happy!

One of my simple pleasures:
Sitting outside on a cool evening with a cup of tea.

On my bedside table:
Nothing. I really need to make a trip to the library.

On my TV:
Disney this morning then nothing.

On the menu for tonight:
Something from leftover pot roast. Beef stew or maybe beef pot pie.

On my To Do List:
Work on Kitchen
School Megan
Pick tomatoes

New Recipe I tried last week:
Zucchini Banana Bread This is really good, but don't tell my hubby there is zucchini in it! Shhh

In the craft basket:
Nothing. I really need to find some time to craft.

Looking forward to:
Starting Megan's home pre-school.

Homemaking Tip for this week:
While shredding zucchini for a recipe go ahead and shred all that you have. You can freeze it in portion size bags and only have the mess once.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
I really need to start bookmarking these!

Favorite photo from last week:

Lesson learned the past few days:
Don't wait until Sunday night to get everything ready school the next week. It is quite stressful to try to cut out everything and print everything all at once. I really hope I have learned by lesson and wont' do it again. Or at least often!

On my Prayer List:
My husband and daughter
Niece to by, Faith
Amber for a safe trip home

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
