Happy Homemaker Monday

On my bedside table:
Prairie County Fair A book with four novellas by four different authors. A gift from Monica. I am enjoying it as it is a quick entertaining read.

On my TV:
Tonight will be Jon & Kate Plus 8

On the menu for tonight:
BBQ Boneless Chicken Breast, Green Beans & Rice

On my To Do list:
Dust & Vacuum Living Room
Work on painting kitchen cabinets

New recipe I tried last week:
No new ones last week due to stomach bug. I barely eat and didn't cook at all last week.

In the craft basket:
Sketching some ideas for Chuck to make for the kitchen.

Looking forward to:
Finishing the painting on my kitchen cabinets.

Homemaking Tip for this week:
When painting an item that you need to lay down place it on wax or parchment paper instead of newspaper. It will peel right off of the wax/parchment paper, but will stick to the newspaper.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Amy had some good ideas on living within your budget. I love what she says about "ditching the Joneses." Something I need to work on.

Favorite photo of the week:

Sneak peek at my kitchen. The new counter top is in, the back splash has been started and the bottom cabinets are almost completely painted.

Lesson learned the past few days:
Rest is a good thing, even when your to do list is a mile long.

On my Prayer List:
My husband & daughter

Devotional, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:1 ion)
"Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised." Proverbs 30:31

This is something that Sandra @ Diary of a SAHM is hosting. Be sure stop by and wish her a great Monday!
