Happy Homemaker Monday

On my bedside table:
Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder

On my TV:
Disney this morning, then nothing.

On the menu for tonight:
Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches, Fries, Fruit Cocktail and Cherry Jello for an evening treat.

On my To Do list:
Clean Kitchen
Make a bank deposit and a quick trip to the grocery

New recipe I tried last week:
Whole Wheat Banana Bread

In the craft basket:
Hand towels for shelf in bathroom

Looking forward to:
A three day weekend with nothing on the calendar.

Homemaking Tip for this week:
If you toast your buns/bread before making sandwiches like sloppy joe or bbq then the buns/bread will not get soggy.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Haven't been spending much time on the computer.

Favorite photo of the week:

Lesson learned the past few days:
When times are tough never stop praying for your hearts desire. I have a long time friend and she has gone through a very rough time. She and her husband divorced in December. It was the wake up call her husband needed. The have gone to counseling, found a church and are getting re-married on their anniversary date. Although their marriage did end, she never stopped praying that they would find each other again.

On my Prayer List:
My husband & daughter
Brian, my brother-in-law
Mike, my step-father-in-law on his job hunt

Devotional, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." 1 Corinthians 13 4-7
