{ Happy Homemaker Monday - March 29 }


The weather in my neck of the woods:

Things that make me happy:
Sitting in bed with a good book

Book I'm reading:
The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper by Kathleen Y'Barbo

What I'm enjoying on TV:
Lark Rise to Candleford Season 3
Stargate Atlantis - Season 3 - I'm still absolutely loving this series
John Adams - HBO mini series following the life of the extraordinary man that was John Adams.

On the menu for dinner:
Turkey cutlets with mushroom sauce and Mashed Potatoes

On my To Do List:
Iron laundry and put away
Wash bed sheets
Finish sewing some Bread Bags

New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:
Bisquick Upside Down Pineapple Cake - it was so so so good, it didn't even last one afternoon in my house, and that says a lot because we're not really cake people around here.

In the craft basket:
Bread Bags

Looking forward to this week:
There's nothing scheduled for this week, so I'm just looking forward to more spring weather and more time spent outdoors enjoying the fresh air.

Tips and Tricks:
Removing glue from countertops, we've all been there, you accidentally spill some and next thing you know you have this hard annoying little blob that you just can't seem to get rid of.

My favorite blog post this week:
The Joy of Reading from I live on a farm. Such a good post.

Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
Shining Egg - Another newly discovered blog that I'm really enjoying reading.

No words needed (favorite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share):

Something about this picture just brings the biggest smile to my face. I want to be there, right next to the little kids and the puppy, in that beautiful field, surrounded by fireflies and the moonlight.

Lesson learned the past few days:
That I'm not as young as I used to be and no matter how much I tell myself that, my body is always reminding me to take it slow and not over do it.

On my mind:
This annoying back pain that I'm dealing with. I seem to have pulled a muscle this weekend and it's smack dab in the middle of my spine, it's frustrating and annoying and I am reminded that there are just way too many muscles directly connected to it. UGH! Even reaching for a cup is painful.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
The wicked man earns deceptive wages, but he who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward.
Proverbs 11:18

We loved the HBO series on John Adams. We need to watch it again before we take a trip up to Adams National Historical Park.

I hope your back feels better! I know I hate when I am not feeling 100% whether it be due to illness or body aches.

I hope you have a great day! Take it easy..ambitious gurl says so. LOL
