The weather in my neck of the woods: it is a very nice day here...praise God! There were 2 tornadoes in our area Saturday. Both were EF0 and a EF1 but living in western NY it is VERY rare. Praise God no one was injured in either. Just a couple of houses were damaged.
One of my simple pleasures: reading a book out under our maple tree.
On my bedside table: fan, alarm clock and my Bible.
On my TV: nothing at the moment
On the menu for tonight: stuffed zucchini. If you get a very large zucchini out of your garden, here is what you do. Scoop out the seeds to form a "boat". Stuff with the same ingredients you would use to make stuffed peppers. Bake in the oven for about 30-40 mins depending on the size of them. During the last few minutes sprinkle with cheese and melt. YUM!! My family loves this.
On my To Do List: Finish getting items around for school to start next Monday. We start early here so I can ease us back into a routine after being off for a while. Finish painting the house. I can't wait to share the transformation our home has made during the past month. Start ripping the bathroom apart.
New Recipe I tried last week: Have not really tried anything new.
In the craft basket: cards. I've become a Close to my Heart consultant. I LOVE it! I get to teach others how to make cards for less. I also love to find ways to reuse other items. Also, something I'm going to try soon is a virtual workshop. I've seen it done other places and I thought I'd give it a try. So any of you out there that might be interested check back soon for more information.
Looking forward to: Getting our home back in order after the remodel!
Homemaking Tip for this week: when you are in the middle of remodeling your home do not stress over the extra dust. This has been VERY hard for me to do. I think I have almost worn out my new vacuum. LOL!
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other): have not really had time for extra computer time. Hopefully soon I'll be able to get back to it.
Favorite photo from last week: the storm coming in this past weekend! I've never seen clouds like this in a long time. Believe it or not this was taken around 4pm, notice how dark it is.
Lesson learned the past few days: See homemaking tip.
On my Prayer List: my sister, Sherri, about 4 years ago she developed an infection in the brain and had to have major surgery. Well today she is moving into an assisted living apartment. I also found out her husband is filing for separation. This is going to devastate her!!
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses: Psalm 46:1-2 "God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;"
