{ Happy Homemaker Monday }

The weather in my neck of the woods:
Still in the 80's and I'm so ready for the cooler Fall temps.  This time of the year always makes me miss Idaho even more.

Things that make me happy:  
My teapot

Book I'm reading:
Back to The Shape of Mercy :)

What's on my TV today:  
Once Upon a Time - want to see the first episode and see if I like it
New Merlin episode

On the menu for dinner:
Have leftover meat from last night so I'm making Roupa Velha.  A Portuguese dish using leftovers, onions and potatoes etc.

On my To Do List:

Change all the bed linens

New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:
I was sent some seasoning to try out, so I threw something together with the ribs I had and it turned out VERY tasty.

In the craft basket:
Cover for my toaster
Fabric Bookmarks
Ripple blanket for my Ripple Along with Lucy and Heather

Looking forward to this week:
Just a good week of schooling, work for us all

Tips and Tricks:
I use vinegar for pretty much all my cleaning but sometimes I like to infuse it with a little citrus, not just for the scent but for the cleaning qualities as well, so I use lemon and orange peels and place them in a big jar with vinegar, then let them steep.

My favorite blog post this week:
Haven't done any blog reading this week.

Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
Can't think of one off the top of my head.

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

Lesson learned the past few days:

To slow down, as it is life already goes by at lightning speed and there's no need for me to add to it.

On my mind:
Homeschooling, Christmas

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
