Happy Homemaker Monday


The weather in my neck of the woods:
Still getting cold mornings and warm afternoons. I really don't like it, would rather it be cold or hot, not both LOL

One of my simple pleasures:
Sleeping in

On my bedside table:
A Love to Last Forever by Tracie Peterson - Almost done with it, loving the book
Couple books from library and one to review for you all

On my TV:
Stargate SG1 Season 9
Living with the Dead

On the menu for tonight:
Chicken Curry

On my To Do List:
Sweep and Mop floors

New Recipe I tried last week:
Baked Cheese and Ham Sandwiches

In the craft basket:
Granny Square blanket

Looking forward to:
Getting back on track with my weight loss, I was doing so good and then this weekend fell off the wagon. Too much junk food and laying around.

Homemaking Tip for this week:
I got nothing today, maybe I'll think of something later and come and edit LOL

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
No blog reading last week, I'll have to catch up today.

Favorite photo from last week:


Lesson learned the past few days:
Not to be so hard on myself. I was so upset earlier this morning when I realized I had actually gained weight over the weekend, but I had to remind myself that it's ok, I'm not perfect and the weight loss journey is never without a little hiccup here and there.

It's far to easy to criticize ourselves rather than think positively all the time.

On my Prayer List:
Family and Friends

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:

It is so easy to be hard on ourselves, I think we are more spurred on to action when we are positive.

Happy Monday to you!

We are most often our own harshest critic. I guess, that makes us strive so hard to do better when all others are accepting and even proud of what we do when we are disappointed....Go figure....
You have a good week and try to relax on you!

That pic of the pie looks wonderful. I'm assuming it's lemon from your tree?

I'm joining you on the weight loss adventure. There was a candy bar calling my name over the weekend and once I ate that It was all over.
