Happy Homemaker Monday

So I decided to do this even though I work outside our home, I still love being a homemaker:)

The weather in my neck of the woods: Cloudy and 80's today, with a nice breeze

One of my simple pleasures: Taking my time hanging laundry on the clothesline :)

On my bedside table: "Simple Life" by Wanda Brunstetter

On my TV: Don't have one

On the menu for tonight: Chicken and Sausage Paella

On my To Do List: Paint Back Porch, Buy or Make curtains for Back Porch, Hang shelf

New Recipe I tried last week: Penne Pasta Ham

In the craft basket: Painting signs for around the minifarm, and painting a shelf that Tedd made me :)

Looking forward to: a good nights sleep :)

Homemaking Tip for this week: Instead of going through the hassle (and the time) of planning a garage sale, take all of your unwanted goods to your local auction house. You don't have to deal with ANY of the hassle and in a few weeks you'll get a nice little surprise check in the mail. Its great!

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):

Favorite photo from last week:

Lesson learned the past few days:
Everyone is different...instead of trying to change it, just accept it:)

On my Prayer List: Uncle Jerry (back in the hospital), my sis and new baby, Janeen and baby Caiden at Riley, Tedd, family and friends

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses: "Let your light so shine before Men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven" Matthew 5:16
