Happy Homemaker Monday - 07/22/20137:10 AM
Good morning ladies, sure hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as I did mine :)
Woke up early this morning to the sound of cows and chickens. I tell you this country life just never gets old and I could never imagine myself in a concrete jungle, ever again.
On to this morning's Happy Homemaker Monday :)
The weather.....Loving this summer, it's hot but it's nothing like Arizona heat. Have a great week coming up, mostly in the 90's.
Right now I am....Drinking my morning coffee flavored with Vanilla Creamer, writing up this post and listening to the swish swish of my KitchenAid while it churns fresh butter.
Thinking....About my brother and sister in law and niece and nephew, they are currently on their first flight across the ocean to the USA. Can't wait to see them tomorrow.
On my reading pile....Nothing at the moment, returning my books to the library this morning and have a few on hold to grab. All about homesteading, chickens, Amish and cooking...MY kind of reading :)
On my TV.....My Portuguese soaps and a few British shows I want to catch up on.
What I found while surfing the net....San Francisco Herb Company, a great website to purchase bulk herbs and spices, and pretty inexpensive too.
On the menu for this week....Starting this week I'll be back cooking for a big family, it's been at least 15 years since I've done it and I have to tell you that I'm a little nervous LOL But I think cooking to me is like riding a bike, so I'm sure I'll get right in there and not flinch.

Tuesday - Seafood Sub Sandwiches
Wednesday - Taking the family out to dinner

On my to do list....
Laundry....so excited it's something I don't get to do often *roll my eyes*

Get Dressers in the bedrooms
Make Sour Cream Pound Cake for the Pastor's visit this evening
In the craft basket....Dishcloths, that's all I'm doing...just dishcloths. Have these adorable Wiggly ones which will be up for sale soon.
Looking forward to this week....Seeing my family and getting them settled in. Eating yummy food, drinking a glass of wine, chatting, catching up, pool time, barbecuing etc.
Looking around the house....The sun is coming in through all the windows and it's just beautiful in here. I have all the windows wide open to let in the fresh air and all I hear from outside are cows mooing and chickens off in the distance. Need to sweep and mop, but other than that the house is clean :)
From the camera....
On my prayer list.....
Brother and family for a safe flight.
Friends and family needing prayer right now.
Bible verse, Devotional....
I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
