Happy Homemaker Monday

It is Monday again, which means that it’s "Happy Homemaker Monday," a project which is hosted by Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. Each week, she hosts "Happy Homemaker Monday" as a way to highlight what is going on in her world. This week I have decided to join in....So here is a little glimpse into my world on this Monday!

The Weather:::
Yesterday was GORGEOUS!!!! It was almost 70 degrees and sunny. Today it is raining and in the mid 50s. Still it is not snow and it is not freezing so I am okay with it.

Right now I am:  
Writing this blog post. Watching Benjamin cruise backwards around the living room in his walker. Listening to Jacob at the kitchen table trying to get the last drop of yogurt out of his yogurt cup.

That Daylight Savings Time is kicking my behind. I so did not want to get up this morning. It will be nice to get out of work when it is still light though.

On my reading pile:::
Firefly Island by Lisa Wingate

On my tv:::
The Bible (DVRed it last night so I can watch it this week)
I am also hoping to get a bunch of shows off the dvr this week as we only have 6% left on there.

On the menu for this week:::
Monday -  Pizza crescent rolls and green beans
Tuesday- Breakfast for dinner (waffles, french toast sticks, fruit)
Wednesday - Pot roast in the crockpot with potatoes, onions and carrots
Thursday -  Manwich sandwiches, corn, fruit
Friday - Macaroni and cheese and fruit
Saturday - ?????
Sunday - ????????

On my to do list:::
Laundry, laundry and more laundry
Take trash and recycling out to the curb
Organize bills and pay them

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
I am trying to come up with a first birthday cake idea for Benjamin's b-day in a couple weeks.

Homemaking Tips:::
Do a quick clean up of the main living areas of your house before you go to bed. When you get up in the morning you will be greeted by a clean house, rather than more to-dos.

Looking around the house:::
Breakfast dishes are still on the kitchen table. Benjamin has toys all over the living room floor where he has thrown them. The kids' art table has a coloring book open to a half colored page and has a magna doodle on it covered in an artistic creation!

From the camera:::
Bill and  I on Saturday night. We were headed to a dinner auction for our daughter's school. The theme was 1920's speakeasy!

On my prayer list:::
For marriage and relationship strengthening and understanding. For a friend as she is coming up on then end of her radiation treatment for breast cancer, but is now dealing with lymphedema. For my mom, as another tumor was found and removed from her bladder. For my husband as he is entering into a couple VERY busy weeks!

Bible verse:::
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
So there you have it...a little glimpse into my Monday. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
