Happy Home Maker Monday


The weather in my neck of the woods: Beautiful drizzling rain. Praise God. My tomatos are getting a good soaking!

One of my simple pleasures: Seeing a sleeping baby

On my bedside table: The same pile of books...but we got the baby's bed moved over the weekend...and he is sleeping peacefully in his new little room.

On my TV: Right now the Christian music c.d. package but tonight hopefully a good girl movie
my Cowboy husband won't be home. I'll have the remote all to myself.

On the menu for tonight: I think I will try fajita's in the crockpot I saw a recipe on Crockpot Thursday I want to try.

On my To Do List: All ministry related...planning an Oct. fundraising dinner have to firm up the location, finish two grants due on the 31st. The house the laundry will suffer but that is life.

Recipe I tried last week: Split Pea soup I found here I only cooked half the bag of peas and did it in the crockpot and it was great. We had enough for Friday night and then lunch on Sunday.

In the craft basket: Still the same quilt but as soon as I get the sewing room in order I need to make curtins for the baby's side of the room.

Looking forward to: The fundraising dinner in October. Before firming up the plans and the entertainment. I am so excited. I am really praying it all comes together.

Tip for this week: Start your post for Monday and save as a draft adding your favorite post and link and recipe and photo during the week.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other): Need to follow my own tip. I did mark my recipe but not my post. And dawng! It was a good one. Maybe I'll find it and do two next two next week.

Favorite photo from last week:

Found this while searching for butterfly photo's hope it makes you smile too.

Lesson learned the past few days: This isn't new but it has been reinforced over and over. That even though we go through struggles that Jesus is there standing in the gap for us waiting for us to reach out to him. I am a very visual person this just came really to read reality to me in a video I posted Saturday. You can go here to see it.

On my Prayer List: Two girls at our halfway house, a boy in the boy's facility and how to help him (he is 17 and doesn't know how to read or write), the fundraising dinner and the plans. Our Sunday School class we have not had a teacher since January.

Scripture Reading, Key Verses, Devotional: Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Romans 12:2

I like when my hubby is out @ night sometimes so I have control of the remote! Enjoy!

Great tip, I have thought of doing that myself, makes it easier and doesn't take so long to do once Monday is here. :)

Great tip! I see lots of great post and usually forget where it is by the time I need to link to it.

Have a great week!
