Happy Homemaker Monday

On my bedside table:
--February'09 Country Home magazine
--Two Yada Yada Prayer Group books from the library. Why do I bother to borrow these? I can't seem to get into them. Too many details.:-)

On my TV:
--Super Why

On the menu for tonight:
--Garlic-butter spaghetti with chicken; salad

On my To Do List:
--Clean kitchen
--Spray paint planters

New Recipe I tried last week:
--Sweet Potato Waffles from Taste of Home. These were okay. I doubt that I'll be making them too often, though.
--Soaked Whole Grain Tortillas. Yum!

In the craft basket:
--crayon pouches
--valentines for my husband

Looking forward to:
--Planting some seeds this week.
--Valentines Day!

Homemaking Tip for this week:
We rented the Rug Doctor(carpet cleaning machine) to clean our carpets this weekend instead of having them done professionally. It was an easy process and we're happy with the results. The best part? We saved $40 to $50 dollars by doing the carpets ourselves.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Simplifying:Buying Less and Giving More

Favorite photo from last week:

Seeds to plant outside this week!

Lesson learned the past few days:
Training to run a 5k hurts!

On my Prayer List:
--my husband
--clear direction for Andy and I for the future
--our nation and new President

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:

In reading through the book of Ephesians this week, these verses stood out to me as Extreme Makeover: God Edition.

Ephesians 4:22-24:
"You were put off your old be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness."

Thanks to Sandra for hosting Happy Homemaker Monday!

Seeing the picture of seed packets makes me wish Spring would hurry up!

Sandra said...

Oooh I need to go get some seeds. :)

Great list. You know I actually love the Yada Yada Prayer Group books :)

I have some seed packets I need to do something with soon! I'll have to check out that blog - that's a topic I always find interesting.

I need to rent a cleaner for my carpets too. We have been here about 9 months and they really need it!
