On my bedside table:
The Friday Night Knit Club
Small mason jar with fresh flowers
Country living magazine

On my TV:
Robin Hood Season 3
Paranormal State

On the menu for tonight:
Cowpoke Chili -recipe will be up on the food blog later

On my To Do List:
Just a quick pick up after the weekend....I did all my spring cleaning last week so I have a spotless house.

New Recipe I tried last week:
Hearty Baked Potato Soup - Absolutely love it

In the craft basket:
Bread Bags - I'll show you soon

Looking forward to:
Getting back into my Level 2 of the 30 Day Shred. I got the stomach bug last week and had to stop exercising for 3 days, I miss it.
Also looking forward to Jasmine's birthday this Saturday, my baby girl is turning 10 years old.

Homemaking Tip for this week:
If you have tons of canning jars laying around and not quite sure what to do with them...go on and read Sanity Saving Ideas for Canning Jars.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
My View from my Window....

Favorite photo from last week:

A clean house, nothing like it.

Lesson learned the past few days:
When you suddenly find yourself in bed because of sickness, allow your children to pamper you. You would be surprised at just how much they'll make you smile and how much better you will feel.

On my Prayer List:
My family
My husband and children
My family in South Africa

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:

“And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid.

You are worth more than many sparrows.”

Matthew 10:30-31 (NIV)


  1. Glad you had a good week Sandra...Bet you are all busy making last minute plans for Saturday.

  2. Enjoyed reading your list. Also like your picture. Oh yes a clean house - that's always good!

  3. I enjoyed reading your list, Sandra, and I'm glad you're feeling better now.

  4. I agree there is nothing better then a clean house.

    Have a great day!

  5. I love that scripture, Sandra. It always awes me that God cares enough about each one of us that knows how many hairs we each have. Thank you for the reminder not to be afraid.
