Happy Homemaker Monday!


The weather in my neck of the woods:
50 degrees but nice and sunny.

One of my simple pleasures:
Hugging my children tightly

On my bedside table:
Twenties Girl
Some books for review

On my TV:
Emma 2009
Stargate Atlantis

On the menu for tonight:
French Lasagne from Mari. Can't wait to try it.

On my To Do List:
Grocery shopping
Sweep and Mop
Change bed linens

New Recipe I tried last week:
Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls from Joann


In the craft basket:
I don't even remember anymore, it's been ages since I've looked in there.

Looking forward to:
More Emma and Lark Rise to Candleford on TV

Homemaking Tip for this week:

There's a reason the pros can tote all the products they need in one tray: they've simplified cleaning products. Professional cleaners carry:

  • light-duty evaporating cleaner (glass cleaner or multi-surface cleaner)
  • heavy-duty degreasing cleaner
  • tile cleaner
  • powdered abrasive cleanser

That's it! No soap scum remover, no special counter spray, no single-use products designed to clean only blinds or fans or walls. The pros know that these four simple products can handle any ordinary cleaning chore.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Haven't had a chance to read any yet....but if you haven't read it yet, I would point you in the direction of my wedding ring post, it will bring a new perspective to the way you see your wedding rings.

Favorite photo from last week:

My homemade DVD/CD covers

DVD Covers

Lesson learned the past few days:
Let it go....just let it go and put it in the Lord's hand, but don't turn around and demand to have it back because it's not getting taken care of as fast or as you see fit. Just LET IT GO and LET GOD!

On my Prayer List:
Family and Friends

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word.
Psalm 119:9
