Happy Homemaker Monday


The weather in my neck of the woods:It's 94 deggrees but feels like it 100, I'm praying we get some rain soon.

One of my simple pleasures: crocheting...i find it relaxing.

On my bedside table: The Time Travelers Wife

On my TV: watching ICarly with Miss Chloie

On the menu for tonight: Fried Shrimp

On my To Do List: wash, fold & put up this mountain of laundry

New Recipe I tried last week: haven't tried a new recipe in a while need to find some new ones

In the craft basket: Lots of ribbon...need to make some bows for the girls

Looking forward to: my brother coming to town

Homemaking Tip for this week: can't think of one at the moment.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other): Layers of Love Mouse Cakes these cakes are too cute

Favorite photo from last week: My Toothless Chloie

Lesson learned the past few days: great friends are hard to find,but once you do be thankful for them.

On my Prayer List: friends that are having difficulty conceiving and friends that are waiting for adoption

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses: Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still. (Exodus 14:13a,14)
