Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather in my neck of the woods:
Cold. The high will be about 35* and there is snow in the forecast. Yeah!

One of my simple pleasures:
To snuggle under a warm blanket on a chilly night.

On my bedside table:
Summer by Karen Kingsbury

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

On the menu for tonight:

On my To Do List:
Clean Kitchen

Wrap presents

Order a few things from Amazon
Finish some homemade gifts

New Recipe I tried last week:

In the craft basket:
Finish scripture & photo coaster gifts

Make a garland with homespun trees

Looking forward to:
Having all of the Christmas shopping finished this week.

Homemaking Tip for this week:
Keep stain remover close to the hamper. That way you can treat a stain as you put the item in the hamper and not have to remember to take the item to the laundry room.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
This post from Heather about a Simple Christmas.

Favorite photo from last week:

Lesson learned the past few days:

I don't do well with chaos. I need to have a to list and have things in order. Flying by the seat of my pants just doesn't work for me. It really causes me stress.

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

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
For I know the thougts that I think toward you, says the LORd, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
