Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather in my neck of the woods: very cool this morning. I love mornings like this, I put my coat on and step out on the deck to enjoy my time with God.

One of my simple pleasures: hearing the sound of my children laughing and yes even arguing means they feel better. We have all been sick now for about a week. Hannah is still having trouble recovering from this flu.

On my bedside table: hand sanitizer, bible, lamp and a couple of books.

On my TV: a satellite TV Christian radio station called Enlighten, it is all southern gospel.

On the menu for tonight: chili, corn bread, homemade crackers. I am putting it all in the crockpot.

On my To Do List: DISINFECT our home. Anyone have a large enough washing machine...ha ha! Mid week kids club at Church, our anniversary on Thursday, homeschool leaders meeting on Saturday. All pending on our recovery.

New Recipe I tried last week: I did not make a thing!

In the craft basket: cards, family scrapbook, my sister's pregnancy journal, my faithbook.

Looking forward to: everyone getting better SOON!! Just when we think we are all better the cough starts up again. I sanitized the kitchen last night including pots and pans, stove and the refrigerator.

Homemaking Tip for this week: after having a household of germs, make sure you sanitize the forgotten areas of the house, door knobs, windows, the cars-you were going back and forth to the doctor and the store right....germs, the handle of the refrigerator, cupboard handles and doors, furniture, dining room table and chairs, beds including the mattress and pillows.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other): sorry but I did not read any blogs this week.

Favorite photo from last week: this was from about a week ago. My wonderful husband knew how I was feeling like I had no space for myself. I love to scrapbook and make cards. But I always had to haul everything out and then put it away again. Well he surprised me with this table that fits just perfectly next to the computer. I love it!! It has a shelf underneath where I can store my sewing machine, craft tubs and some paper. No more digging it out. Thank you so much Honey!!

Lesson learned the past few days: it is very hard to take care of the house when everyone is sick including yourself! When people offer to bring you meals take them up on it. Do not worry about cleaning your house until you are all well, that way you won't have to do it again.

On my Prayer List: my family, church family.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:Psalm 46:1 "God is our refuge and strength, a very present HELP in trouble."
