Happy Homemaker Monday

On my bedside table: Bible and the Love Dare. I have not started anything new yet.

On my TV: Gettysburg, Hubby and I started this yesterday.

On the menu for tonight: Pork chops, scalloped potatoes, green beans

On my To Do List: make more bread, baking for the week, get ready for the new furniture to arrive this week!!!

New Recipe I tried last week: bagel bread, I will be posting the recipe tomorrow.

In the craft basket: I am finishing up the afghan for Andrew. Then will be starting some squares for an afghan for Katie and Hannah.

Looking forward to: spring!! I'm wishing it were in the 70's here!!

Homemaking Tip for this week: When you have a lot to do make a list. Especially if you are like me and tend to forget things. Not only will it save you time but also money.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other): Not only is A Magnolia's Heart Beats my favorite of the week, I love to read her posts everyday. She has such a wonderful way to explain things. I also love the word studies she does.

Favorite photo from last week: Andrew and my Husband made me a planter box last weekend while the girls and I went to a jewelry party. Notice the little tool belt?? Too cute. Andrew said, "I did ALL the work while father stood there and watched me!" LOL

Lesson learned the past few days: That no matter how good our marriage is, there is always room for it to get better. Going through the Love Dare with my Husband has been such a rewarding experience so far. We are more aware of how we treat and talk to one another.

On my Prayer List: My Husband, Naomi (her sister goes to our church) who was in a terrible car accident. She has a severe head injury and many broken bones.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses: Jeremiah 29:11 (New King James Version)
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope."

I find that making lists doesn't help me because I always misplace them or forget about them LOL

Hi Jen, thanks for your support in prayer for my Dad. And thanks for sharing your lessons learnt. So true about our marriages. And I totally agree about making lists - although I don't do it enough.
