What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::Finished my potholder and am really pleased with the result, though I won't be making another. The switching of colors in the middle of the rows is a little too frustrating for me LOL Need to block it again now that I've got it completely finished, I don't like the curling ends.
Homemaking Tips:::So the summer fun category wasn't really working for me, it is kinda hard to try and find something to put in there, so I am switching it back to my old Homemaking Tips. I think this one will be easier for us to fill in. Just think about any cleaning, cooking tip, or whatever works for you to make things easier around the home :)
Here's my tip for today. When I pack a lunch for my husband, I never pack the dressing with the salad because by the time he gets around to eating it, I don't want him to have nasty soggy lettuce. What I do, is, I have a small empty spice jar that I have washed out really well. I keep that one for his dressing, just fill it up, pop it in the tupperware with the rest of the lunch and he just pours it on when he's ready to eat :) Problem solved.
Looking around the house:::I actually have dishes in the sink from last night. *GASP*
Shocking I know. So first thing this morning, after I am done posting this, is to tackle those.
Kids are still asleep and the only sound I hear is the humming of the refrigerator behind me, the water in the fish tank in the living room and some snoring coming from some sleeping pugs on my couch.
From the camera:::
My favorite time of the day. When everything is starting to slow down, when there is nothing but the glow of candles around the house. It really does scream HOME to me :)
Something fun to share:::
Are your kids bored already of summer?
Are already hearing the "I am bored, I don't know what to do, I'm BORED"? Well, then you should probably come up with some fun stuff for them to do right? That's where Skip to my Lou comes in. She's been doing a Summer Crafts Camp for a few weeks and there are tons of cute activities and crafts for your kids to make and indulge in. Go on over and take a look.
On my prayer list:::My husband.
Lois's husband, as he is also away right now.
All the other soldiers who are currently away from home, praying for their safety and their fast return to their loved ones.
Actually praying for some rain, we need it.
Bible verse, Devotional:::"But will God really dwell on earth with men? The heavens, even the highest heavens, cannot contain you. How much less this temple I have built!"
—2 Chronicles 6:18
