"Happy Homemaker Monday"

I shamelessly swiped this from another blog, because they're rather fun to do!

On my bedside table:
Stacks of books
Benadryl, a nightly staple for sleeping
A bag of chocolates - and yes, they last a LONG time

On my TV:
Dust. We don't watch TV. We watch DVDs on our TV -- right now, Star Trek Next Generation and Mulberry

On the menu for tonight:
Beef tips over pasta
Green salad
Cold peaches
French Bread

On my To Do List:
I did it all already! Well, okay, a bit more grading.

New Recipe I'm trying:
Easy French Bread from the More With Less Cookbook

In the craft basket:
What craft basket?


Looking forward to:
Being out of school for the summer, and spending more time with my children.
[Not looking forward to: selling van, selling house, moving...]


Homemaking Tip for this week:
Planning a weekly menu ahead of time, even just a rough one, will save you money at the grocery because you won't be tempted to buy items that you won't need that week - you already KNOW what you need that week!


Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Lanier's experience with the Bee Charmer


Lesson learned the past few days:
Worries are much more alarming in the early morning, or late at night. Try to ignore them, and revisit them after prayer, scripture reading, and quiet meditation.


On my Prayer List:
My husband's call to be a pastor, that the Lord would affirm it
A good end to the school year
2 servicemen I know, one severely injured, one just being deployed

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Today, Jeremiah 29 -- a reminder to be obedient to the Lord even in times of exile and sorrow.
"Delight yourself in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart." -Ps. 37:4

I know that, when I thoroughly delight in God, He becomes the only desire of my heart. Isn't that how it works?

  1. Have you tried the Oatmeal Bread from the More With Less Cookbook? It's one of my favorites and was my introduction to bread making.
