Happy Homemaker Monday #32

Happy Monday morning, everyone :)

I hope you had a good weekend.  Mine was super super super busy, but in a good way.  We got a lot of things done, we ate good food, we indulged in yummy desserts and we spent time together, and I think that's all you could really ask for :)

The Weather:::
86 degrees right now.  We did have some rain on Friday night and cloudy skies throughout the day on Saturday, a little thunder but no more rain.  We have beautiful blue skies today, and if the temperature stays as is, it will be wonderful outside :)

Finishing off Book #2 in the Kauffman Amish Bakery Series.  Have been filling my Kindle with all sorts of books and I can tell you that I have far too many, but I'll get around to reading them all I'm sure :)

My Portuguese soaps

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Nothing at the moment, but I'm throwing around ideas for a new crochet pillow. 

Homemaking Tips:::
Did you know that you can hull strawberries easily, by using a straw????  Just insert the straw from the bottom up and the hull will come right off.


Looking around the house:::
I have snoring pugs around me, it's like a symphony LOL   Children are still in bed.
My husbands Knight in Armor is standing at the corner of my living room and it has scared me a gazillion times already.  He finally built a stand for it and got it all set up, and now I'm freaking out everytime I round the corner of my hallway and that thing is standing there LOL 
Have a living room that has definitely been *lived in* this weekend, so there's glasses and toys and books etc around.


From the camera:::
Have to show you what we made this weekend.  The idea came from the Classy Clutter blog.

On my prayer list:::
Lots of prayers, I am constantly in prayer during the day, even when I'm on facebook or blogging.   Anytime I see a prayer request, I immediately send it up :)


Bible verse, Devotional:::
“Unless we do his teachings, we do not demonstrate faith in him.”
—Ezra Taft Benson

The rolling pantry is a great idea and turned out really nice. I will have to check into the Kauffman Amish Bakery Series--love books about the Amish. Your quote was right on:) Have a great week.

I love the strawberry hint! That will make things easier for my kids! I have way to many books on my Nook too! I sympathize :)

I had a busy weekend, and a even busier today. But if all goes well I will receive a grant to buy a bicycle; that would make my life so much easier and less hectic.

Now I'm off to see if anything good is on TV (anything that requires brainpower is just beyond me right now)

God led me to your blog in my search for a blog written by Christian stay at home moms. I have been reading for about a week now and I am really enjoying it!
