Happy Homemaker Monday7:04 AM
The weather in my neck of the woods:
It's 42 degrees right now and dark and cloudy and the perfect weather to jump back into bed, but unfortunately it's back to school this morning, so no more sleeping in.
One of my simple pleasures:
Taking walks after dinner
On my bedside table:
A lot of good books I picked up at the library, but none of which I can remember the names at this moment haha
On my TV:
Stargate SG1 Season 8
Julie and Julia
On the menu for tonight:
Meat Lover's Lasagna (recipe will be up on food blog later)
On my To Do List:
Trip to the commissary for the last few items I need
New Recipe I tried last week:
Samburgers (recipe will be up this morning)
In the craft basket:
Granny Square blanket
Looking forward to:
The holidays being over and a New Year ahead, the possibilities are endless.
Homemaking Tip for this week:
It's that time of the year to get the big cleaning done, or at least that's when I like to really get in there and do a big clean around the house in preparation for the new year.
Here's a checklist that I plan on using, I try different ones each year and this one comes from Organized Home.
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
I'll have to put down my own just because of the huge amount of money we saved on groceries and who knows...maybe someone else can do the same.
Favorite photo from last week:
Food Value Club - all of what you see, plus 3 other boxes full for $48
Lesson learned the past few days:
That you have to think outside the box, just because you've been doing something the same way for years, does not mean it's the best or right way. Don't be afraid to take that leap and try something new.
On my Prayer List:
Family and Friends
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
But when they saw him walking on the lake, they thought he was a ghost. They cried out, because they all saw him and were terrified. Immediately he spoke to them and said, "Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid."
