Happy Homemaker Monday #336:59 AM
Good morning :)
I woke up today yearning for fall.....for pumpkins, spice cake, boots, scarves and hot chocolate. *sigh* Can't wait for the temperatures to cool down.

Homemaking Tips:::So you have all these great kitchen appliances, but not enough counter space. You stash the stuff in the pantry or in kitchen cabinets and then forget about them, right? Been there, done that.
What I do, is that every two weeks, I rotate my appliances out. I pull out the rotisserie and the crockpots, for example, and make my menu plans according to them. The next two weeks, I put those away and pull out something else that hasn't been used in a while. This way, everything gets used and I don't forget that things exist :)
Looking around the house:::Living room looks pretty clean and tidy even though it's a Monday morning, which usually after a weekend of everyone home and relaxing, looks like a tornado has swept through.
My kiddos are still sleeping and hubby has just walked out the door for work.
I have a cup of lukewarm coffee next to me, my Kindle, my Bible and a little sleepy pug snuggled up against my leg.
From the camera:::This has to be one of my favorite pictures from this past week....simply because I still get so much pleasure out of hanging my laundry out to dry :)
On my prayer list:::My husband as he beings his journey towards his Bachelors Degree.
My children, that they do well in school.
My family and friends who need prayer right now, for whatever reason it may be.
Bible verse, Devotional:::Even the most confusing day opens up before you as you go step by step with Me. My Presence goes with you wherever you go, providing Light for your path.
