Happy Homemaker Monday

                         Good Morning
                            Happy May
I'm spending my normal Monday with Sandra over at Family Corner and sharing a peek into my week . . . 

The weather outside is 
We've April showers and cooler weather the last few days.  Today we're celebrating some wonderful
spring weather.

On the breakfast plant this morning 
Hmm... what sounds good?  One last glass of chocolate milk from the grandson's recent visit.
And some blackberries and yogurt.  Blackberries always bring back sweet memories for me.
I'll have to share them sometime.

As I look out my window 
The sun is shining and the birds are singing.

Right  now I am 
Thanking God I can write this post.  I enjoy sharing my day with you.

As I look around the house
Books to organize.  We are waiting for a thrifty set of shelves.  I've had this idea to put a set
of shelves inside the opening of the fireplace mantle.  Now to find some.

On today's to do list 
A package to mail
Sweep, mop, vacuum
I hope I get to sit at the sewing machine.  Have a quilt to finish and one I want to start
I wrote about it on my Blue Monday post.

Currently reading 
A review book . . .

I can't wait to start.  Looks like a fun read.

On the menu this week 
Monday--Pork LoMein, Brocolli Salad (I hope I have egg rolls in freezer!),Kale Chips
Tuesday--Spaghetti,Salad, Garlic Bread
Wednesday--Mexican Chicken and Rice, Borracho (sp) Beans, Salad, Tortillas
Thursday--Homemade Pizza I am going to master crust if it kills me. HeHe.
Friday--Steak, Onion Rings and Fried Zucchini  really healthy!

What I am creating 
The scripture journal for my daughter.  That will end up being Christmas
Drawing in my prayer journals

New recipe I've tried or want to try 
Tried a new fried rice recipe last week.  Not very good.
A new pizza dough recipe.

From the camera
Prayers, Inspiration or Devotionals
Today I am sharing a portion of a prayer request I posted yesterday from a young man in the prison unit where the Cowboy and I serve . . . click here to read the entire request.
' I want ya'll to pray for my family,  my granny, brother, sister.  And my mama. She is going back to prison
for a long time.
I need your prayer that I can change my ways and be somebody that my family wasn't . . .

Even though I know and see the big picture sometimes I am just touched and bewildered to hear some of the things these young men suffer.  

                                     We are blessed.   Give your kid a hug today.
