Happy Homemaker Monday...

The weather in my neck of the woods: Hot & sunny

One of my simple pleasures: a ripe, fresh summer tomato (if I have already said this one week, I apologize. But is does bear repeating as it is THAT good!)

On my bedside table: 'Twilight' by Stephanie Meyer

On my TV: nothing

On the menu for tonight: Spaghetti, salad

On my to do list: work @ my husband's office

New recipe I tried last week: Pineapple Bread posted by Laurie. YUM!

In the craft basket: still nothing

Looking forward to: my stamp club today (my husband has been kind enough to let me take off a couple of hours to attend!), scrapbooking w/ friends tomorrow. I haven't seen this group of friends expect to say 'hi' since school was out in May so it will be fun to catch up.

Homemaking tip of the week: Get the kids to pitch in. Even the little ones can help you carry laundry, fold it, take off the sheets, dust lower levels, unbreakable items. They may not make it to the finish line with you but every little bit helps.

Favorite Blog post of the week (mine or other): This one by Tahoe Girl. Yes ladies, we do all of this!

Favorite photo of the week:

Little Miss & Smokey on the first day of school


Lesson learned the last few days: You really need to make yourself clear. Crystal.


On my prayer list: friends, family


Devotional, scripture reading, key verse:

Whatever you want in life, other people are going to want it too.


Believe in yourself enough to accept the idea that you have an equal right to it.
