I had a good one, you know all about my Saturday as I posted about it, but yesterday I didn't get a chance to get on the blog and post anything. We were gone all day to my brother's house for a bbq. We had good food, listened to 80's music and thought about all the good times from our youth, and then watched all the video clips from their trip here to the USA back in 2010.
Great memories, great day, but we didn't get back home until quite late and by then I was exhausted and crashed.
Let's see what this week holds, shall we?

New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::::
Haven't really cooked anything new, this past month our budget has been a little tighter due to college registrations and ordering of transcripts and book buying etc. I've stuck to easy quick inexpensive meals without much room to experiment or try something new.
In the garden::::
I showed you in a previous post what my garden is looking like. I think I'm most excited for my tomatoes.
Favorite photo from the camera::::
Just love this little area on my shelf
Wax paper is endlessly useful. Use it: To catch grated cheese, to place under seasoned flour for breading or spices for blackening, to tear into strips to slip under a cake you are icing, to cover a dish you are microwaving.
Visiting with Blog friends (blog you want to share, blog post that caught your eye)::::
One of my favorite places to visit, is the blog of Leslie Austin. It is a visually stunning blog with so many beautiful photographs.
First I want to thank you all for the prayers for my husband last week, he successfully enrolled on Wednesday and starts his classes this morning.
For me, I think my mattress is needing replacing as I find that I wake up almost every morning with a very sore back and rib area, it is fine during the day but when I lay in bed at night it is quite sore.
For our schooling year, that everything goes well and that these children soak up every bit of information brought before them.
Bible Verse, Devotional that is resonating with me at the moment::::
PLEASE, don't add links to this list that are not part of the Happy Homemaker Monday. I've asked numerous times, and I'm frankly quite tired of having to remove links to other posts that shouldn't be in this list. Please be respectful of my request!
