Happy Homemaker Monday - December 27

HHM



The weather in my neck of the woods:
Cloudy and 46 degrees, we're supposed to get more rain this week.


Things that make me happy:
Doing housework or yard work with my family, we always make it fun.


Book I'm reading:
Nothing at the moment but I did receive a new one for review which I need to read.



What's on my TV today:
Nothing, haven't been watching much TV lately


On the menu for dinner:
Smothered Pork Chops


On my To Do List:

Finish cleaning and getting the house back in order after the holidays.  Also working on getting Jasmine's homeschooling computer set up.


New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:
Eggnog Pancakes


In the craft basket:
Granny Mandala's
Crochet jar cover


Looking forward to this week:
Relaxing with my husband and kids, getting ready for homeschooling next week.


Tips and Tricks:
I am drawing a complete blank, honestly can't think of a single tip to share.



My favorite blog post this week:
Was terribly sick this past week and really didn't get to do any blog reading.


Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
iCrochet - if you love crochet as much as I do, you have GOT to visit this blog, you will be gobsmacked with all the pretty pictures AND the gazillion new links to blogs


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

Lesson learned the past few days:

That I'm not omnipotent, that I can't DO everything and most of all, that I'm not invulnerable.  Being really sick to the point of having to stay in bed for two days really does make you stop and think.  We take our health for granted, we don't ever really think about it because we feel fine but when you're knocked off your feet you immediately thank the Lord for all the healthy days you have. 


On my mind:
Homeschooling and I know I have been saying that a lot, but truly, we can't wait.


Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.
Isaiah 7:14
