# happy homemaker monday

Happy Homemaker Monday!

On my bedside table:
Knit Two
Two books for reviewing on the blog

On my TV:
Dancing with the Stars
Paranormal State

On the menu for tonight:
Salisbury Steak, Salad

On my To Do List:
Take Jasmine to the doctor this morning, she's complaining of ear ache
Iron 3 loads of laundry and put away

New Recipe I tried last week:
No new recipe, just revisited an old favorite..... Ham and Cheese Chicken Rolls

In the craft basket:
Summer Skirts

Looking forward to:
Summer break in less than two weeks.....can't wait.

Homemaking Tip for this week:
When the kids come home from school, I immediately go through their backpacks, throw out any junk, put aside what is to keep, and sign any letters or notes that need to be returned. I pack Nicholas' snack and his folder back into the backpack and set both backpacks near the front door.
Saves a lot of time when we're running around in the morning.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
I loved my mother's hands by 4 Reluctant Entertainers...what a sweet post.

Favorite photo from last week:

Lesson learned the past few days:
That even with all the sanitizing and disinfecting I've done lately, there will still be sickies. Curt caught whatever we had and is sick with a cold, and somehow Jasmine is complaining of an ear ache and is off to the doctor this morning.

I think the biggest lesson for me has been to let go, do my part and then just go with the flow when things happen and not make a big stink about the fact that I can't control who gets sick and who feels this or that.

On my Prayer List:
My family

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:

For where two or three have gathered together in My name,
I am there in their midst.” Matthew 18:20 (NAS)


  1. Hi Sandra,

    Sorry to hear you have sickness in your household once again. I hope you all can get through this quickly and be done with it once and for all!

    My hubs has been sick now for 3 weeks with two separate colds. Squidge has a cold too.

    Praying you're all well soon.

    Hugs and love


  4. Bummer ~ darn those sickie bugs! The weather is far too nice to be sick! Praying for comfort to settle over your house!!!!

    Sorry to hear you are sick, but I am right there in the middle of chasing a little one with tissues and keeping myself from coughing on them! Get lots of rest!

  8. Sorry to hear that the sickies are back visiting! Get well soon!

  9. I am so sorry that the sickness continues and wonder if you should all be on medicine at the same time. You have a wonderful attitude through what has to be so hard. I can remember when my children were little and we sometime had illness for months on end. Praying for your family.
