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:
On the menu for tonight:
--Garlic-butter spaghetti with chicken; salad
On my To Do List:
--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:
--valentines for my husband
Looking forward to:
--Planting some seeds this week.
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:
--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.
"You were taught...to put off your old self...to 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."
