Happy Homemaker Monday is launched each by Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. Check out the cool "pantry" they made to go beside their refrigerator! WOW! Makes me wish I had a bigger space beside mine!
Sooo, let's get started...
The weather...69 degrees (F) as of 9:00 a.m. That is about 6 degrees cooler than it has been at this time of the morning for the last week. So hoping for a little cooler day. Maybe 95 instead of 100?!!!
On my reading pile...Need to start No Eye Can See by Jane Kirkpatrick--2nd book in the Kinship and Courage Series. But just got The Preacher's Daughter by Beverly Lewis. Hmmm...which to start first?!!!
On my TV...Might try to find a good family film on Netflix today to watch with my favorite 10 year old who will be visiting me today:)
On the menu this week...
Anything that requires little or no cooking until the weather cools off a little bit. I'm thinkin' lots of sandwiches and tacos! We are not used to heat in this part of the country so only have a very small room air conditioner that can't keep up when I'm cooking and baking.
On my to do list...
- Make and can applesauce
- Make and can salsa
- Make and send 3 encouragement cards
- Send cards to hubby's clients
- Catch up on office work (hubby's files)
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating...
- Crocheting another pineapple doily
- Getting ready to start some Doily Potholders to use as Christmas gifts
- Always making cards--sent off swap cards last week and making encouragement and thank you cards today
Homemaking Tips...Here's a tip I just learned from Creative Homemaking--Did you know you can use plain white vinegar in the Jet Dry compartment of your dishwasher and have spotless dishes? What! I don't need to buy Jet Dry anymore??? Amazing!!! White vinegar is sooo much cheaper!
Looking around the house...Dog toys everywhere! They do love their toys:) Books and magazine piled on hubby's side table. A fine layer of dust on everything--we open our windows at night to cool the house off so dust gets on everything:(
From the camera...
I always seem to have pictures of my son's very spoiled and much loved English Bulldog Rocky on the camera! How could I not take pictures of his cute little mug?!!! He provides lots of laughs for us!
On my prayer list...Two friends with Cancer:(
Bible Verse; Devotional...
"O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!" Romans 11:33 (marked in my hubby's grandmother's Bible)
Thank you for stopping by for Happy Homemaker Monday! I will be crafting with my favorite 10 year old today so will show you some of our projects tomorrow! Have a great day!
