Happy Homemaker Monday

Welcome to Happy Homemaker Monday! I love the picture Sandra used this week because I really like lavender--the look and the smell.

Each week Sandra starts the Happy Homemaker Monday and I get to play along! You can too! Just got to {Diary of a Stay at Home Mom} and follow directions! 

So let's get started with our Happy Homemaker Monday...

The weather...The heat finally came to my part of the world! Today it is 90F degrees; yesterday was it was closer to 100. As long as I waited for heat, I am not going to complain and hubby just put a small air conditioner in so the house is very comfortable.

On my reading pile...

  • My Bible
  • All Together in One Place by Jane Kirkpatrick
  • The 8th Habit by Stephen Covey
On my TV...Looking forward to the season finale of Dogs in the City! I really hope they renew this series!

On the menu for this week...
  • Monday--Artichokes
  • Tuesday--Big Salad
  • Wednesday--Dinner out (Hubby's birthday)
  • Thursday--not sure yet
  • Friday--Mizidra--a favorite at our house
  • Saturday--Dinner with friends
  • Sunday--Tacos--it's my birthday!!!
On my To-Do list...
  • Make tote bag--at least start it.
  • Make cards (absolutely have to get done today and tomorrow)
  • Work on organizing craft room
What I am sewing, knitting, crocheting or creating...Nothing at the moment. Got stuck on my Wheat Doily so have to find some help. I will be working on a tote bag and some cards this week.

Homemaking tips...One of my favorite tips is for cleaning the microwave--place a cup or bowl of water in the microwave. Microwave for 2 minutes. Now you can wipe the microwave clean with no scrubbing! 

Looking around the house...The house is empty except for me...ahhh! There are a couple loads of laundry that need to be put away and I need to clean out the dishwasher but otherwise everything looks pretty good.

From the camera...

Still had pictures on my camera from the 4th of July parade. This is picture is one of the older fire trucks from the Ione Rural Fire Protection District. 

On my Prayer List...

  • My mom is really sick right now and doctor doesn't know what it is yet.
  • My daughter has a nasty flu bug--makes it hard to be a wife & mom
  • Friend's grand opening of their restaurant as a vegan restaurant (hoping to do a post on this next week)
  • Friends traveling to Maine next week
Bible Verse; Devotional...
"Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord." Psalm 27:14
