Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather in my neck of the woods:
Rainy and cool.

One of my simple pleasures:

Listening to Christmas music with only the Christmas tree light shining. So peaceful!

On my bedside table:
Nothing. I just finished a book and haven't picked out a new one yet.

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

On the menu for tonight:
Chicken & Noodles

On my To Do List:

Sweep Kitchen
A little Christmas decorating in the kitchen
Hopefully crafting

New Recipe I tried last week:
Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

In the craft basket:
Fabric Trees

Looking forward to:
Having all the decorating done this week so I can sit back and enjoy Christmas.

Homemaking Tip for this week:
Double check that you have all of the ingredients needed before starting a recipe. Don't ask me why I know this is a good thing. lol

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:

  1. It is rainy and cool here, too. Hope you have a wonderfully blessed week.

  2. Have a great week!!!

  3. Your tree is beautiful! Great tip - I started to make cookies a couple weeks ago and realized I only had 2 eggs when I needed 4. We usually have lots of eggs so I was surprised. It's good to have a plan B! :)
    Have a good day.

  4. Fun, Christmas-y post! The cheesecake sounds AWESOME!

    Happy Monday!

  5. The tree is beautiful!
