Happy Homemaker Monday...

The weather in my neck of the woods: Sunny, supposed to be about 79 today :)

One of my simple pleasures: A day @ home with not much to do.

On my bedside table: About half way through 'Finding it' by Valerie Bertinelli - so far so good!

On my TV: nothing right now but am looking forward to CBS sitcoms tonight.

On the menu for tonight: Probably soup and sandwiches since it is our first night of hockey.

On my to do list: Jazzercise, clean (really clean) and purge LM's playroom, change/wash sheets

New recipe I tried last week: none

In the Craft basket: little treats for LM's classmates for Friday. Will post a picture when I have a few completed.

Looking forward to: Halloween weekend. Carving pumpkins w/ friends on Friday night. Then the oh-so-fun trick or treating (can you hear the sarcasm? It's my husband & daughter's holiday - I go along for the good pictures I get to take which make good scrapbook pages.)

Homemaking tip of the week: Not mine, I think I read it in Good Housekeeping but I think it's genius: Freeze soup flat on a cookie sheet in a zip loc bag, when frozen stand up in a plastic container - file style - with the labeled/zip loc end up. Easy to find when you're ready to eat and so much quicker to thaw. Brilliant! Why didn't I think of that???

Favorite blog post of the week: Love this one as we head in to this very, very busy season.

Favorite photo of the week: Sorry to say, I have nothing.

Lesson learned the last few days: Things change.

On my prayer list: My mom's friend Michelle who just lost her husband.

Devotional, scripture reading, key verse:

Behind seeming permanence lies constant flux.
