Happy Homemaking Monday
The weather in my neck of the woods:
Cool and in the 50's. It should be in the high 70's today. After our strange summer I am wondering if fall is here to stay.
One of my simple pleasures:
The way my home smells when something is baking or simmering on the stove. Doesn't matter if it is cookies, break or a stew on the stove I love the simple, cozy feeling it gives to my home.
On my bedside table:
Tales From Grace Chapel Inn: Spring is in the Air by Jane Orcutt. I have a series of Grace Chapel Inn books by Guidepost. Most things from Guidepost are good reads.
On my TV:
Some Disney or PBS this morning, then nothing.
On the menu for tonight:
Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Chips, Assortment of fresh veggies & dip
On my To Do List:
Pick up House
New Recipe I tried last week:
In the craft basket:
Nothing. I plan to reward myself with some craft time after I get a few projects completed.
Looking forward to:
Having a clean house!
Homemaking Tip for this week:
I can't think of anything right now.
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Kat @ Heart2Heart
Favorite photo from last week:
Meeting Baby Faith
Lesson learned the past few days:
I can't keep complaining about life moving to fast and not having enough time for things. For the most part I am in control of my time and I need to make time for things that are important and say no to things that cause stress or do not improve the quality of life for my family.
On my Prayer List:
My husband and daughter
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated. ~Confucius
