Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather in my neck of the woods: Hot August nights . . . in the 100's

Things that make me happy:
Being able to be home with nothing important to do.

Book I'm reading:
Just finished Chasing Superwoman by Susan M. Dimickele (review will be posted today)

I'm enjoying on TV:
Chopped and The Next Food Network Star

On the menu for dinner:
Pinto Beans cooked in the crockpot and corn bread muffins

On my To Do List:
Put away dishes from dishwasher
A couple loads of laundry
Writing reviews for this week

New Recipe I tried or want to try soon: Kelli's Chicken Pot Pie. Go here for the recipe and there is also a cookie recipe too on the post. Visit her sidebar for a list of some yummy things she includes photo's and the recipes!

In the craft basket: Working on a baby quilt will finish the top today and post it. Still working on my daughters Cathedral Window quilt.

Looking forward to this week: Drama team practise Wednesday with "my" boys

Tips and Tricks: Cover your muffin tin with foil if you don't have a cookie sheet. Works great. And if you live in a small space you can do with out the cookie sheet.

My favorite blog post this week: I love visiting Becky and her adorable dogs. Here's a link to a post where she took us on a garden tour.

Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
I just found Chrisitie don't know how I am always stumbling onto great blogs. She has some wonderful DIY posts. Go over here for a visit.

No words needed (favorite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share):

I found this idea a while back. Sorry if this is your photo and I didn't give you credit. You deserve it though! I love your idea! Does anyone know a way to save photo's and link where you got them?

Lesson learned the past few days:
When Cowboys (or Cowboy in this case) are jerks that there is usually a reason. And that given time they will get over the bad mood.
On my mind:
The huge challenge of making our new apartment a home with what we already have. The challenge is using our artwork and other decorative items in such a small space.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. ~John 16:33~
Same verse from a couple of weeks ago. Today I want to dedicate this verse to 2 of our boys.
J.Mo (18 years) is in jail on an assault charge. He is innocent and we are praying that the witnesses will testify to clear him and that the family is able to hire an attorney. Keyon is in the hospital. He was shot a few days ago. Unfortunately his leg was amputated. He is 18 and played basketball. He has a long hard road ahead of him. Both of these young men are believers J. Mo is praising God he is alive and he is trusting God has everything under control. Praying that Keyon will continue to trust God as he struggles through recovery.
