Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather in my neck of the woods:
Not bad considering it is the last week in November. It should be close to fifty and sunny. For today anyway. I hear that is changing very soon.

One of my simple pleasures:

Hearing Megan and Daddy laughing while out in the garage. Makes me smile everytime.

On my bedside table:
Sunrise by Karen Kingsbury. It is the first book in the Sunrise Series. I hope I can finally finish this book.

On my TV:
Some Disney or PBS this morning, then nothing.

On the menu for tonight:
Beef & Noodles, Green Beans, Rolls

On my To Do List:
Sweep Kitchen

Wipe out oven
Get Christmas cards ready to mail


New Recipe I tried last week:

In the craft basket:

Looking forward to:
Thanksgiving with family

Homemaking Tip for this week:
Make sure the snow shovels are handy, you have plenty of salt/sand and that the snow boots still fit. It is frustrating to have the first snowfall (while hubby is at work) and you can't find the shovel.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
I don't think I had a favorite post last week.

Favorite photo from last week:

My nieces with Megan.

Lesson learned the past few days:

I can't make everyone happy.

On my Prayer List:
My husband and daughter
My brother-in-law Brian. He is serving in Afghanistan.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:

In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
