Happy Homemaker and Monday Mosaic

Monday Mosaic

Thanks for coming by. Sandra hosts Happy Homemaker Monday over at Family Corner...stop over there after you visit here awhile.

The weather in my neck of the woods:
HOT, HOT, HOT Yes...I copied Sandra but she said it so well!

One of my simple pleasures:
A quiet evening alone with no one else in the house, a glass of wine and a lifetime movie or chick flick.

On my bedside table:
Do I have to answer this again. If you have stopped in over the last coe couple of weeks the answer is the same. Please don't make me speak those words again. It depresses me that I haven't finished that project.

On my TV:
Christian c.d. package on our cable. "All Along" by Remedy Drive.

On the menu for tonight:
I don't know. Bottom lip sticking out! I didn't get to grill over the weekend. And I am keeping the baby till 7 that is why this post is late. So I have no idea what
I'll through together once he is gone.

On my To Do List:
Tonight I am going to try to move some more furniture around to finish the sewing room redo, maybe some sewing I want to make curtins for a couple shelfs and my desk. The week is busy: babysitting tommorrow, food bank Wednesday the deliver food, Thursday and Friday a leadership conference (we got scholarships how cool is that?) Saturday othing!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'll play all day digging in the dirt and Sunday church

New Recipe I tried last week:
I made my own creamed style corn and it was excellant. I took a can of white corn mashed it with a potato masher added some milk and butter and salt and pepper. It was really good.

In the craft basket:
Not yet but hopefully those curtins

Looking forward to:
The weekend

Homemaking Tip for this week:
Mass cooking. I used to do Once a month cooking. But now I do it once a week. I think no a days people probably don't shop monthly much anymore. But if you cook up a couple pounds of hamburger and roast a chicken then you have 3-4 meals already almost prepared.
And, watch the new show scheduled for next week on food network. Did you see the finally of The Next Star? She is from Keller, Texas. I can't wait to see the show.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Esther Rose's post you can read it here

Favorite photo from last week:

I know I showed it at the top of the post but I wanted to explain it. These are photo's of some of my favorite things that I wrote about in Kelli's Show and Tell on my other blog.

Lesson learned the past few days:I am still working on learning patience. But I am learning how to cope and rest in God's assurance.

On my Prayer List:
One special girl in our halfway house her name is Misty and she is 18 she has no one to go once she is finished at the halfway house. I am praying for a miracle in her life.
My family

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Yesterday the message was about Tuning up the volume. Not letting the world drown out Christ.

Lovely Mosaics ;--)
Fun to get acquainted through reading your post. It's just about time for dinner and methinks I may enjoy a glass of wine with you.
Hugs and blessings,
