Happy Homemaker Monday – April 8, 2014

Another week, another Happy Homemaker Monday!





As I look outside my window:::  Kids are playing soccer in the street.  Birds are searching for worms in the grass.  The wind is picking up and blowing through the still-empty trees.

Right now I am::: Relaxing!

Thinking and pondering::: About bills – making a little money stretch a long way!  Also about menu planning.

On my bedside table::: A lace doily and a compilation of Jane Austen’s works.

On my tv this week (I watch all my shows online!)

The Blacklist

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::  Well, this is loosely “creating” lol – but I do plan to do a bird feeder craft with the girls, just using seeds and on-hand items to hang up outside to feed all those hungry beaks!
My simple pleasure:::  Watching the birds outside my kitchen window while washing dishes.


Lesson learned the past week:::  Stick to your budget :/
Looking around the house:::  I see pink kitty toys on the wood floor, ceiling fan over the dining room table spinning,  dishes that need to be done!

 Prayer List:::  My children and family as always.  Our country.  My friends.

Bible verse, Devotional:::  Hebrews 4:16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.


Have a blessed week,
