Happy Homemaker Monday7:22 AM
The weather in my neck of the woods:
It's a blue sky with not a cloud in sight and feeling pretty hot already even though it's only 7:30 am.
One of my simple pleasures:
Taking a long hot bath with the lights off and only illuminated by candlelight.
On my bedside table:
Wizard's First Rule - Need to finish this one

Homemaking Tip for this week:
Every two weeks or so I rotate the appliances on my counter tops, I actually take out one from my pantry and set it on the counter, if I see it, then I'll use it. You know how you have tons of great stuff like the Foreman Grill, Rotisserie etc but never use it because it's packed away?
Well this way, I see it and I make sure to plan my menus around it.
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Bonnie's post yesterday just cracked me up, I think if we were ever to meet we would have a blast OR end up in jail or something LOL
Favorite photo from last week:
This old wagon from the early days we saw up at Geronimo, AZ. I just love it!
Lesson learned the past few days:
That your home is your sanctuary, that no matter how far you may go, there is NOTHING like returning to your safe place.
On my Prayer List:
My children and husband
My bloggy friends
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well.
1 John 5:1
