Happy Homemaker Monday!

The weather in my neck of the woods: A smidge overcast, warm, a little breezy... perfect!

One of my simple pleasures: listening to the birds on a quiet afternoon

On my bedside table: Crazy Love... our last chapter for bible study this week :( such a good book, sad to be ending it! Also, still working on Little Women....

On my TV: Contemp. Christian music channel. :)

On the menu for tonight: Smoked sausages on the grill! And some home made potato wedges and maybe some broccoli n' cheese.

On my To Do List: Laundry, dining room is a disaster after last weeks TAX PREP so I need to tidy that up...

New Recipe I tried last week: Deceptively Delicious cookbooks' Beef Stew. REALLY good... and lots of hidden veggies! --I'll be posting about the recipe for blueberry cobbler later this week. Packed with...spinach... and tastes amazing!

In the craft basket: Nada. Maybe if I actually create a real basket... hmmmm....

Looking forward to: Bible study tonight, playgroup tomorrow, one of our teens plays this week and heading to OHIO/GA this weekend!

Homemaking Tip for this week: Everything in its place...and everything has a place. I am so tired of clutter. I've started just putting everything out of place into a big silver bin and then on Friday sorting it out and putting it away right then and there. If it's something we haven't needed all week I might pitch it. And, if we are missing something during the week we can generally find it in that bin!

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other): "Love your man! know what i mean?"
Sarah Mae over at Like a Warm cup of Coffee CRACKED ME UP with this post! Just read it (if you are married!) and see for yourself. I still get all giggly when I read these kinds of things. ;)

Favorite photo from last week:
We had a cell group activity night! I rarely enjoy getting my pic taken...but with these girls... LOVED it!

Lesson learned the past few days: I can't expect LOST people to behave like SAVED people.

On my Prayer List: My cell group girls, my hubby, our Togo team serving in Africa.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses: Haven't done that yet today... good thing this ends here :)
