Happy Homemaker Monday 


The weather...

The sun is shinning and it's 21 degrees.  My husband and I plan to take a walk this afternoon.

 

Right now I am...

I am sitting on the couch with my feet up, enjoying a cup of Dunkin' Donuts coffee with a splash of cream, relaxing after having gone to town to do some errands.  I love Dunkin' Donuts coffee and I can find it in the coffee aisle in the store in town.

 

Thinking...

That after this cup of coffee I need to pull out my knitting as I have a ufo I need to get done.

 

On my reading pile...

Almost Amish: One woman's quest for a slower, simpler, more sustainable life, by Nancy Sleeth

 

On my tv...

A few episodes of Trisha's Southern Kitchen and Nora Roberts' Northern Lights

 

Favorite Blog post this week (mine or other)...

Super Bowl commercials over at The Farmer's Daughter.

 

Something fun to share...

If you mouth the word "colorful" to someone, it looks like you are saying "I love you".

 

On the menu for this week...

Monday...The Pioneer Woman's Marlboro Man Sandwich

Tuesday...Leftover homemade pizza from Sunday.

Wednesday-Sunday...Not sure what the menu is going to be as we'll be in Illinois babysitting for our grandchildren.

 

On my to-do list...

Finish up the laundry I started this morning, go for a walk with hubby this afternoon, make dinner.

 

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating...

Knitting a hat, and weaving a rug that is 1/4 of the way started on the loom.

 

Homemaking tips...

I buy cilantro and usually end up throwing it out because it doesn't keep.  Now when I buy cilantro I put the bunch in a large coffee cup with cold water and put it in the fridge with plastic covering it.  I told my dil this trick but she forgot to put it in the fridge and cover it, but left it out on the counter and it looked great.  So, next time I'm going to try that and see if it lasts longer.

 

Looking around the house...

I see the tulips I bought in town, clothes drying on the drying rack that I bought at the Amish store, and looking around I see the sun streaming in the windows warming our home up.

 

From the camera...

Creek and mountains

 

On my prayer list...

A blogging friends husband.  I just found out he had cancer and is now cancer free, and I'm praying that he continues to be cancer free.

 

Bible verse~Devotional...

To you, O Lord, I called;

To the Lord I cried for mercy...

You turned my wailing into dancing;

You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy.

Psalm 30:8,11
