Homemaker Monday on Tuesday


I love this meme found over at Sandra's even though this is a day late I wanted to participate. And, I have posted here in so long I thought this was a great Welcome Back to myself.

The weather in my neck of the woods: Two words: Triple digits
One of my simple pleasures: A long soak in a hot bubble bath, glass of wine and a good clean romance novel. Lately I enjoy Norah Roberts
On my bedside table: A stack of books from my bookshelf which I am planning on moving to another spot.
On my TV: Right now late night Tues. my husband has control of the clicker some kind of sports show with Bret Favre interview. Now If I was watching it would be a good movie. Or if I was listening it would be our local music package listening to Contemporary Christian.
On my To Do List: Getting laundry finished. Normal everyday house things. My goal is to get my kitchen counter cleaned off. I don't have enough cabinets for all my treasures. And moving furniture and book shelves around.
New Recipe I tried last week: Wish I had more time to cook. I love cooking. Right now I live through through others cool blogs. I admire all those great cooks and hostesses.
In My Craft basket: Oh I hate to say this but it is the same quilt I have been working on since February.
Looking forward to: Finishing the quilt! And getting it photograped and posted.
Homemaking Tip for this week: I loved Sandra's answer and mine is similar. No matter what you do or how you do it go on trips with your kids. Make memories. Even if it is short weekend trips around your state. Even if your not a history buff go see historicals sites and have fun taking silly photo's. Enjoy your family.
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other): Well I didn't plan on doing this so I really can't name a post but one of my favorite stops is Daisy Cottage.
Favorite Photo: Don't you just hate it when things don't work right. I can't open my pictures. GRRR.
Lessons learned the past few days: Patience
On my Prayer List: My blogger friend Debra Kaye is in the hospital with heart problems. She will have a procedure tomorrow. You can read more here

Thanks for visiting. It is good to be back.

Simple Women's Daybook

I haven't written a day book post in a while and I went over to visit and found Peggy is off for vacation next week. Bummer... here's my post.

Outside the window....I am at my daughters house so I am looking out at her side yard and the lovely little house with white picket fence next door.

I am thinking....that it is quiet and peaceful and I am enjoying playing around writing and visiting my favorite blogs.

I am thankful for...this moment that my grandson is asleep and resting and that I get to keep him.

From the learning rooms....I don't homeschool but I do a reading group for teenage girls that are in prison we are reading Women of the Bible.

From the kitchen...my daughters is spotless which is usually the case...mine well the dishwasher was going when I left so that is a major improvement. My counters are cluttered and I don't know what dinner will be. I had to keep the baby unexpectedly today so no dinner plans and no time to finish the kitchen.

I am wearing....jeans and a red t-shirt no shoes at present...my feet are cold.

I am creating...a quilt for my daughter

I am hoping...to finish said quilt soon!

I am reading...Women of the Bible

I am praying...God will give me patience to wait on his perfect timing in situations that I have lifted up to him. And that my grandson gets over his cold.

I am hearing around the house...My grandbaby breathing hard with a cold.

This was fun. Since I am oh my daughters computer I don't have a photo to share but I hope you'll come back and visit me again. If your interested I write mostly over here come by and see me.

Have a Blessed week.
