Happy Homemaker Monday #346:23 AM
Morning everyone :)
Woke up this morning to a wet world outside, seems it rained last night. Just wish it had happened during the day so I could have seen it :) But it's cooled us off tremendously which is always a good thing.

The Weather:::70 degrees this morning, thanks to last night's rain :) Looks like some more rain this week, but we'll see.
On my reading pile:::
Started Out of this world - A woman's life among the Amish by Mary Swander, then set it aside while I read Pies & Prejudice, so I'm thinking I need to go finish that one.
Have a few others from the library that I have to read before they're due.
On my tv:::Hell on Wheels Episode 4
My Portuguese soaps (Doce Tentacao, Louco Amor, Tempo de Viver)
Breaking Amish (new show on TLC)
On the menu for this week:::Only know what we're having today. The rest of the days are a bit of a mix up right now, see this payday I went completely bonkers with the menu plan and mixed days up and switched this one and that one. Truth be told, it sent me off track and I feel like I'm lost. Won't be doing that again.
Monday - Potstickers, Sesame Noodles
Friday - *Grocery Shopping*
On my to do list:::Homeschooling
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::Finished my big ripply blanket and already got to snuggle under it. Love it so much :)
Homemaking Tips:::Not sure if spaghetti is fully cooked? Pull a noodle out of a pot of simmering water, let the water drip from it for a few seconds, and then chuck it against the nearest kitchen wall. If it adheres to the wall, it’s al dente!
Looking around the house:::It's quiet and it's dark, save for a candle glow coming from the kitchen. Hubby is finishing off checking his facebook and then he's out the door for work. Living room needs a little picking up from this weekend, kitchen is dreadful right now and there are dishes that need washing, a table that has random things dropped on from toys to college books to cookbooks.
From the camera:::I picked this one, just because it's my favorite nail polish. It's beautiful and it's very natural and not in your face like most of my other nail polishes are :)
On my prayer list:::My brother in law Chris, as he begins a new chapter in his life. He is moving from OK to TX to start a new job, so I pray that he enjoys it, I pray he finds a good place to stay and that he makes new friends :)
My father and stepmom, they're still going through a big of a rough time, life hasn't been easy and I pray for some peace and some quiet for them.
Bible verse, Devotional:::The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
