Happy Homemaker Monday!

hhm



The weather in my neck of the woods:
Hot and clammy....this humidity is so uncomfortable, it drives me insane.


One of my simple pleasures:
Having no schedule when on vacation, waking up late and not worrying about what there is to do.


On my bedside table:
My cellphone, charger and laptop computer.


On my TV:
Haven't watched anything since we're on vacation, but I do plan on catching up on Robin Hood and True Blood tonight.


On the menu for tonight:
No idea, we just eat whenever we get hungry, either at home or we run out for a quick bite, another perk from being on vacation.


On my To Do List:
Again I wish I had something to tell you, but I don't LOL
We'll just do whatever we feel like.


New Recipe I tried last week:
No recipes while on vacation


In the craft basket:
I have my crochet bag with me and work on it when I get a chance


Looking forward to:
Right now, just enjoying the vacation but I do look forward to returning home to my pugs


Homemaking Tip for this week:
When out on a road trip, don't rush. It's far to easy to want to hurry up and get to the destination but you end up missing so many neat things to see. On the way back to Arizona, we are taking our time and stopping at as many attractions as we can.


Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Will have to leave this one blank, I haven't even opened my Google Reader since being here, but I'm sure you all understand :)


Favorite photo from last week:

The Lavender Farm was so neat, I love Lavender as you all know and to be right there in the middle of hundreds of lavender plants was just amazing.

Lesson learned the past few days:
That no matter how much you think you know what to expect, you're always pleasantly surprised. We knew being in Texas and revisiting all the family would be fun, but it always amazes us at just how much more fun it was than we first thought.


On my Prayer List:
Family
Troops


Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:


Joshua 14:15

As for Me and My House, We Will Serve the Lord

This is the first time I have been able to connect with your blog in about 2 weeks. Your header and sidebar would come up but no body. So I was goofy and posted my week in review on your homemaker Mr. Linky. At least, that worked for me. It is so frustrating. Hope you continue to enjoy your trip.....
