Happy Homemaker Monday - 09/23/20138:23 AM
Good morning my friends :) Here we are, our first Fall Happy Homemaker Monday, so exciting.
51 degrees right now, been feeling the cooler weather especially in the mornings. I find myself walking around the house with a sweater on. Looks like lower temps and rain this coming week.
Right now I am:
Typing this post up while I sit at the kitchen table with my son and nephew, listening to their chatter.
That I need to go have my finger checked out. I've been having some pain in my joint and it's a little swollen, so not sure what is going on.
On my reading pile:::
Currently reading The Welcome Committee of Butternut Creek.
On my tv:::
Catching up on Hell on Wheels.
On the menu for this week:::
Monday - Crockpot Italian Sandwiches
Tuesday - Fish Cakes with Tomato Rice
Wednesday - Chicken Fricassee with Rice
Thursday - Beef Stew
Friday - Tuna Chick Pea Salad
Saturday - In Boise for the day
Sunday - Chicken Curry
On my to do list:::
Laundry - one load to iron and put away
Take kids to Tae Kwon Do
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Working on a pair of knitted boot cuffs for my daughter. Also started a stash yarn buster blanket to get rid of all the little balls of yarn laying around. I'm using the blanket stitch for this one and I love how fast it's coming together. I don't usually like blankets with many colors but I think this one will look cute when it's done.
Looking around the house:::
Have a sink full of dishes, even though there's 8 of us in the house, we are doing dishes by hand and foregoing the dishwasher. I find it is actually quicker this way because we stay on top of the dishes instead of letting them pile up.
From the camera:::
On my prayer list:::
My family back home as they deal with my grandmother's passing.
Still praying for my brother and sister in law for jobs.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
So speak and so act as [people should] who are to be judged under the law of liberty [the moral instruction given by Christ, especially about love].
It can be difficult to grasp the idea of the “law of liberty,” because law and liberty seem to be worlds apart: A law says one thing, while liberty says another. I believe the law of liberty spoken of in James 1:25 refers to the freedom of self control, because God puts a new heart in us that wants to obey His law of love.
With this new heart that Jesus gave you, you have the ability to be led of the Spirit, who gives you the power and freedom to love others. Enjoy your day by allowing the Lord to love others through you.
